It’s finally starting to feel like fall in the D.C. area and I have mixed emotions about it. I mean, bring on the #basic goodness (dark mani’s, cozy sweaters, plaid shirts, PSL’s, and pumpkin candles) but I wish time would slow down a little bit! It was just summer like three minutes ago. Don’t even get me started on the stores that have already broken out the holiday decor…too soon, Homegoods, way. too. soon.
Anyway, with everyone in a rush to pile on the scarves and boots, I’m taking things a bit slower. The weather is still in the upper 60’s, low 70’s here and I’m going to take full advantage of it while it lasts.
I’m pretty sure fall fashion has been taking a stroll down memory lane because chokers are giving me 90’s vibes and culottes were my go-to in college (I will gladly welcome back gaucho pants but the sequined tube tops need to stay in 2007). Speaking of, I got this culotte jumpsuit (now on sale in all sizes!) a few weeks ago and I’ve already worn it a few times. It is so versatile and the mixed media fabric can be dressed up or down with the right accessories. I added a jean jacket being it was a chillier day but could’ve easily swapped it out for a pashmina to go to dinner. You already know how I feel about my shoes (hands-down my best purchase in a months and under $50) and this top-handle bag has gotten my name written all over it– it is blush-colored perfection.
I’ll be spending my weekend packing up our apartment for our upcoming move but I hope you guys are doing something fun! I can’t say I’m looking forward to it but my reward comes on Monday (Eddie’s birthday) when I can devour some ice cream cake 🙂 Until then, catch me knee-deep in boxes wishing I was going pumpkin picking with a hot Starbucks in hand… (and for all of you who will be affected by the hurricane, take care of yourself and stay safe. I’ll be thinking of you!)
