For me, fashion is serious business. So I put together an ultra sophisticated fall look with some of my favorite pieces from Warby Parker and Express. Then I headed to Williamsburg in Brooklyn for some more Autumn-inspired elegance.
Most of you probably haven’t seen me in glasses before because I’m a part time glasses wearer. I need them to drive and to see things far away. But even if I didn’t need them I would still totally head over to Warby Parker and pick out a pair because their styles are all so cute and classic. The frames that fit me best were Oliver in Whiskey Tortoise. I always feel ultra chic and smart when I wear them.
I once heard a quote that said “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” Having lived in NYC for the past few years, I’m certain that nothing could be more true.
While the New York life can often seem glamourous through the eyes of an outsider, being a New Yorker means that curveballs are constantly going to be thrown at you. So I’ve learned to enjoy walking in the rain, especially if my rainy walks are in the West Village. It’s just beautiful there.
In the Northeast, transitioning your wardrobe into fall and eventually winter is no simple task. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve put all of my summer clothes neatly away only to come head to head with an 80 degree day in late October. So I’ve since learned to transition into fall slowly and stylishly.
What I love most about fall is breaking out my skinny jeans, boots and light sweaters. The comfortable chill in the air, gets me thinking about Halloween and apple cider. The changing leaves also play a huge role in my style choices during the fall months. In celebration of fall, here’s my shopping list of fab fall fashions:
3. Camel Detachable Fur Lined Hood Contrast Trims Cape: I’ve always wanted a cape and this one is to die for! Fall is the best time to wear capes as they can be a stylish alternative to a light jacket. With winter being so cold, they often get covered up. So take the opportunity to show them off during fall.
4. Sephora Favorites Draw The Line: I love black eyeliner, especially liquid. However, I don’t wear it much in the summer because the heat often melts it off. So in the fall, I kind of go crazy with the liner.
5. Vince Camuto ‘Karita’ Over the Knee Boots: There’s nothing sexier for fall than over the knee boots. Aside from being sexy, they keep you warm and go with anything. With all the walking I do around NYC, I wore out my old pair last year. I’m dying to get these.
To find out what’s hot for fall 2013, Marshalls surveyed women all over the country to see what they envisioned themselves wearing this season. The results ranged from solid basics combined with statement designer pieces and the desire to take their boots and sweaters up a notch. I always get excited about the start of a new season (both in terms of fashion and the weather) so it was great to see a room filled with dark and sophisticated fall colors paired with exotic accents for the home.
