Falling









dress: Target / bolero: vintage via Decadence in Edmonton / shoes: Steve Madden / scarf: F21 / cuffs: gift from my mother and Laila Rowe / green bracelet: my grandmothers and worn at my wedding / ring: F21

Fall is officially in full swing in New Haven and this gal could not be happier! But just because the seasons are a-changing doesn’t mean you have to pack away all the summer stuff just yet. I’m transitioning this summer dress to fall wear by pairing it with a scarf and velvet bolero. I’m all about solutions.

There is a dress that looks exactly like that at Topshop that I almost bought but it was $80. Good to know there is a Target version!

Happy Friday!

Super excited for the chill to be back in the air around here, as well. I'm sure I won't be saying that once it hits freezing temperatures, but for now, I'm happy. :)
