What I Wore: Stripes & Plaid

After Tuesday's not-so-autumnal outfit, I have a pretty fall look here for you today! I bought this navy shift dress at Mango last year and love the zipper detail at the hem because it makes it so unique. Accessorized with striped Sperry flats, a plaid blanket scarf and my vintage Louis Vuitton bag, it's a comfy & classic autumn ensemble that works well for the office or a weekend brunch!

Design Inspiration: Fall Fireplaces

Although my apartment is small, I am lucky enough to have the original 3rd floor marble fireplace from the building's construction in 1877. It's a nonworking fireplace, but it adds a lot of charm and decorating opportunity to my little place! I was perusing Pinterest for some fall fireplace inspiration because all I have set up right now is a pumpkin candle inside of a lantern and I wanted to add some more autumn touches to my living space. In case any of you were looking to decorate your fireplaces for fall, I'm sharing my favorites with you today. Let me know which one you like best in the comments below.

What I Wore: Little Black Kimono

We've had some uncharacteristically warm days this October, so I've been able to get away with less clothing than I'd normally be wearing at this time of year. I don't mean I'm running around in bikinis or anything - it is New England after all! - but I have been able to hang on to my favorite LBD: a simple silk kimono that I bought years ago. It's comfortable, chic & classy and I love how it can be dressed up or down depending on my mood. Lately I've been wearing it with my Charlotte Olympia kitty flats and gold jewelry, including an amazing fringe cuff I was gifted by Kendra Scott at the rewardStyle NYFW party and a beautiful necklace from Ocie, a new jewelry line out of NYC that features star motifs which is my favorite symbol to wear. {If you look at my outfit photos closely, you've probably noticed I have a shooting star tattoo on my left wrist although it's hidden in these photos! :) } Let me know what you think of my LBK in the comments below.

Get the Look: Chrissy Teigen

This easy chic look from Chrissy Teigen is absolutely perfect for fall! The minute I saw it on InStyle's look of the day last week, I knew I wanted to try and recreate it for myself. I love how she elevates her simple shift dress with beige knee high boots, a floppy hat and a structured bag. I've put together some great options to steal Chrissy's autumn style for yourself - let me know if you'll be copying look in the comments below!

Friday Inspiration: Quotes I Love

Happy Friday! I couldn't be more excited that we've reached the weekend. Tonight I'm taking a painting class with my friend Morgan which should be a fun way to be creative while having a few glasses of wine and catching up on life! Tomorrow I need to do a major cleaning out of my closet and reorganizing because i'm starting to accumulate too many things for my small apartment. Sunday I'll be volunteering with the Animal Rescue League at the Halloween Canine Promenade - if you're local and have a dog you should definitely stop by! :) I hope you all have a great weekend!
