  • Look of the Week: I am loving the fall tones of Ahn's outfit. And how comfy and breezy it looks!
  • Outfit Envy: I think that Olivia might just be my favorite blogger. And this back-to-school look she put together with Topshop? Oh man, I want everything!
  • Instagram of the Week: Oh my how my friend Sarah's Instagram took me back! I don't think I'm ever not missing my time in Exeter, but this one hit me hard.
  • This Time Last Year: Apparently it was also pretty warm into late September last year, as I was rocking this hot-weather-appropriate romper in Brooklyn!
  • What I'm Wishlisting: How killer are these ASOS boots? I have no idea what I would wear them with, but I'm totally digging them.

still summer?

Dress: Banana Republic (on sale! size down) / Shoes: Zara (similar, similar) / 
Bag: Zara (similar) / Sunglasses: Karen Walker / Lipstick: Topshop "

So today, September 22nd, is the fall equinox. It is officially the start of fall according to science, the solar system, the Mayans and maybe the Druids too...

So why is still so dang hot??

I'm not a fan. Whoever is daring to mess with science and the Mayans needs to chill out. Literally. There needs to be some fall weather happening right now. Sure, I get to wear this cute summer dress one more time but really, it's time for a change.

Hooray! Although it's almost Monday, I can't imagine the upcoming week being as busy as the one I just had. So here's to a fresh new start! And a fresh new batch of stuff for a round-up!

  • Look of the Week: Ok but how chic does Mal look in this lace ensemble? I'm a sucker for lace and high necks and although I'd never have the courage to pull of this piece's cropped length and see-through material, I'm in love with how Mal styled it. Plus that mini Chloé bag? Yes please!

  • Blog I've Started Following: I did start following Daphné earlier in the summer, becoming totally smitten with her warm weather looks, but now I can't wait too see what she wears for fall. Plus it's always fun to follow French fashion blogs because, one, duh, French style is le plus parfait, and two, I get to practice my French!
  • Instagram of the Week: Stacy London supporting Feminist Fight Club, supporting local girl gangs, and so I support all of this.
  • What I'm Reading: My friends (and our moms!) have started a monthly book club! We just finished The Light Between Oceans which, tbh, I did not love, but I'm super excited for our next pick, The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead, which of course everyone is talking about. 
  • Closet of the Week: A new lil feature! I'm not-even-a-little-lowkey obsessed with Poshmark so I thought I'd start linking to my favorite finds on there. Edith's closet is a jewelry lover's dream, where you'll find some brands like J.Crew and Anthropologie but also her own gorgeous designs! (Also...here's a link to my closet, wink wink.)
  • What I'm Wishlisting: Speaking of J.Crew, I'm thinking I need this not-so-basic sweater for fall. I mean it's on sale, soooo...
