American Classics

Fall is so exciting, no?

It’s the whole Back To School thing; I mean, I haven’t set foot in a classroom for more years now than I care to think about (save for a very expensive and slightly misguided stint at NYU for a Masters in Hospitality Management)…but still: the chill in the air makes me want to buy things like pencils and Trapper Keepers. But since I don’t have a ton of use for the aforementioned items, new, autumn-hued (and wildly affordable) clothing will have to do.

Let’s talk pattern-mixing. I love how the sheer paisley blouse and the striped cardigan totally shouldn’t work together, but do, and the reasons are these: 1) one pattern is small while the other is large, 2) both items are in the same color family, and 3) the rest of the outfit is simple as can be.

These are my new favorite shoes, without a doubt. They’re adorable, they’re cozy, they’re exactly what I’ve been looking for for fall, and they were less than thirty bucks at TJ Maxx. Score.

Three more weeks! Maybe.

On me: Cardigan c/o American Living for jcpenney, TJ Maxx sheer blouse over Abercrombie tank, Vintage Revolution jeans, Spike Ball Pendant c/o chloe + isabel, TJ Maxx boots, Rebecca Minkoff purse.

Lipstick: Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in Ruby Star, one of my Best Fall Beauty Finds.
