five more for fall

a few weeks ago i posted my five for fall and i can't help but keeping adding to the list. last night as i was getting to ready to go out i realised it's that awkward time of year to dress up. it's still too mild for a winter coat but a sweater is still a little chilly. i'm a huge fan of mixing fabulous with casual and came up this outfit idea: why not mix some glitter and sequins with a camo jacket? i scored my army jacket at a tiny surplus shop in north london a few years ago, but am loving the versions on the high street. and i love big scarves - this free people american flag scarf is on repeat.

perfect fall sweaters

it's officially sweater weather. last night i was absolutely freezing walking home. one of these sweaters will do suit fine - the only question is which one...
from top to right: madewell striped heart cardigan (i am in love with the elbow patches, perfect for the gal who um, wears her hear on her sleeve, literally!)
dorothy perkins badger sweater (on sale)
gap uniform sweater cape (on sale)

outfit 01!

i was messing around yesterday with my old point & shoot camera with the self timer. i know it's not the best camera for blogging, but i thought i'd still play around with it, blurry fuzzy shots and all. i did a few of the typical blogger poses and i have to admit i kinda, actually, really cringed at what came out. i though a couple of the outtakes were far more fun.  who knew that what ended up on the cutting room floor actually made the cut?

outfit details: allihop for anthropologie striped dress - i love the button details! the cream color also pulled my love for all things striped heart strings, but i thought the black & white would be more useful for the east coast autumn.
accessorize heart stacking rings (old), similar here
bando mini heart 
tattly boombox temporary tattoo (gift from kate!) 
essie's "lovie dovie" (it's the pink ladies pink, i love it.  i am falling in love with pink. again.)

singing in the rain

it's absolutely pouring down in nyc today. it feels like summer is being washed away and the rain is making the streets sparkly clean for autumn. and what better way to put a smile on your face, gene kelly style, with a few irresistible fall must haves?

(my all time favorite) rose gold michael kors "dylan" watch
deborah lippmann glitter nail polish
