Fall Closet Prep

Fall is the best season to get dressed, but it's also a dangerous one. My wallet's already been shaken up a bit and it's no where near pre-fall weather. So in efforts to keep my spending at bay, I've started to shop my own closet and create looks that I can keep on the back burner for future events. There's the quintessential neutrals and knits but also a fair amount of patterns. Organizing them nicely on a garment rack makes it look and feel like a new wardrobe and gets me pretty excited. Try this at home and let me know which items or trends from your closet are going to get some airplay!

From left to right:
1. ALC Hutton shoulder bag

The Dreslyn: In Bloom

Even though we're approaching Labor Day weekend, I can't help but be more committed to wearing white all year long. Especially after seeing The Dreslyn's impeccably styled lookbook for their fall jewelry edit! Love the sharp hair, soft make-up, and minimal gold jewelry.  


Style: Jewels & Jeans

 

The fall weather can't come any sooner. Seeing as I won't be near a beach anytime soon this muggy New Orleans weather has got to go! Can't step outside for two minutes before bolting back indoors for a cold shower. But I did want to share my latest conquests, so for you guys I took the risk teehee. I picked up this jeweled short sleeve sweatshirt from H&M in efforts of adding some spice into my simple wardrobe. It'll be perfect come winter, especially as a layering piece. The bag by Alexander Wang was scooped up on TheOutnet.com for half off! It's sort of the best fall cross-body investment. Slick and sophisticated, but the kicker is it's reversible. You're seeing the black side. The other side is this textured red snakeskin print for my wilder nights. Swoon! Ok back to the no-spending freeze.
