Is it Friday already? What a week it has been. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week just wrapped up. There were so many new designers that I wanted to preview, but wasn't able to make it. It's always an exciting time for fashion, and just being in New York is an experience. Although, in this day and age of technology, I didn't feel too far away from the fun.
Now on to fall... I just had a conversation with my family in Minnesota, and it sounds like temps have dropped dramatically. We, on the other hand, have been getting triple digit heat. I'm so jealous of them right now. For us, the best part of the day is morning--when it actually feels cool.
The Look: I knew it was going to be really hot, but wanted to do layers. As much as I love this cardigan, it lasted only until 10am. It's such a great cover up--wish I didn't have to get rid of it. This is basically my fall mom uniform. Cardigans are a must this time of year. The chunky ones are so cozy. I love the way this style drapes on me. The length is perfect and it flatters even my not-so-happy areas. Overall, it's very neutral with soft greys and white. Adding a bold colored bag just gives it life. I found this one maybe a couple years ago at TJ Maxx. Of course, a great deal! I love the fuchsia and classic design--which is why I can't seem to part with it. Gotta find another bright bag for fall though. Thinking blue! Another great find were these flats--my first pair from GAP. I was in the store shopping for a baby gift when I spotted them. So pretty and comfortable.
Good luck to all the parents out there. The school year's going to be crazy busy as usual. We're already feeling it:)
Note: ZARA sizes tend to run small. Try going up from your usual.
