as summer comes to a close, here’s a little reflection on some of my favorite things from my world of fasion. my favorite color from the spring/summer seasons was mint.  it’s just so fresh and flattering.  here, the feminine details of the eyelet patterned skirt it one of my faves.  it’s just so dainty!  the real standout here, however, is the miu miu clutch.  its jeweled chain strap is simply divine!  i picked up this newly minted “jewel” of a bag in NYC this summer.  pull out all of your faves for one last hurrah and enjoy the last couple weeks of summer!!

there’s nothing like cooler weather after a very hot summer. it’s exciting to access another season of clothes in your wardrobe. you feel fresh and new! as with any wardrobe, it’s best to be able to mix new and old pieces.  this tank is ancient. it’s probably 5 years old.  i’ve held onto it for years simply because i liked the geometric print and it’s easy to wash (i’m not worried about ruining this piece).  paired with a new necklace and new asos pencil skirt (both with interesting geometric prints), the tank now has a new life!  add booties and a little bit of fur, and you’ve got a great look for cooler weather.

a good sport

i haven’t invested in too many sporty pieces, but here i’ve added a taste of the popular trend.  the faux leather leggings and the zipper booties add elements of sport to this look and really transitions this look from summer to fall.  this summery top contrasts well with these very “heavy” bottom pieces.  with lightweight blazer, i have a new look for fall.  (since i’m crazy about blazers, it’s no surprise i added one here!)  with these transitional pieces,  i promise to be a good sport once fall is truly here.  i’m looking forward to a change of weather:) trust me!
