Wearing

Splendid Tee

As we move into the last weekend of summer, I find that I am growing more and more comfortable with the arrival of fall. Those who know me well know that when the weather drops below 70 degrees, I normally get angry, like actually mad. I’ve never liked the cold, but something about this year has me feeling really hopeful. I’m excited for apple picking, trying my hand at hosting Thanksgiving for the first time, and the clothes. I do love the clothes.

Distressed Boyfriend Jeans

Free People Cardigan

While it’s so nice to be able to just throw on a little sundress and sandals and grab my bag and be out the door, my fall wardrobe offers so much more variety. The sweater, jeans, and boot combinations are endless, not to mention all of the great textures of cardigans, socks, and tights to autumnize the aforementioned sundresses. Today, I got into the fall spirit with this cozy sweater, boyfriend jeans, and ankle boots by Free People. The high-heeled boots dress up the distressed denim a bit. I also chose a simple white long sleeve tee by Splendid, a hat by Grace Hats, and my acorn necklace to complete my outfit. Bring it on fall. I’m so ready for you. (Although I am kind of over pumpkin spice everything. Is that awful? Please don’t hate me.)

I am so excited to share this editorial shoot that I styled for Pastorale Magazine. Shot by Erin Marie Miller (of course) and modeled by the hauntingly beautiful Madalyn Knebel, these back to school looks are perfect even if you no longer have classes to attend. I still get excited about the start of the new fall season and a new year even though I haven’t been in school for five years. There is something so thrilling about a fresh start. Obviously, new clothes always get me pretty excited, but these looks that I pulled from V2V are taking away any sadness I had about the end of summer. Check out the full September issue and our entire editorial spread here.
