Lightweight Fall Look

I recently adventured upstate to visit family for a quick weekend trip and take in all the fall foliage and festivities that I definitely don’t get enough of in the city. My favorite is taking the train and seeing all of the leaves changing color along the way.  Since it was unseasonably warmer than usual it was perfect for walking around some of my favorite sites and enjoying Buffalo wings over some football! I realize how I totally miss being a kid going on trips to the pumpkin patch and walking through corn mazes fearful of being lost forever! 

This sweater is super soft and not too heavy for the transition to fall and could easily be layered because of the flutter sleeve detailing. Oatmeal is a favorite neutral, and I got it 40% off!

My denim is old but so comfy, linking similar finds at great price points because I never invest in light denim, since I usually wear darker washes from fall into winter. Credit for the pop of orange goes to my nana for letting me borrow her purse. I think it’s Michael Kors and it is a great size. My grandparents decorate so perfect for the fall and their porch was really photo worthy, I just love it! Every year they have the cutest Halloween decorations inside and out.

Nordstrom Sale Favorites

Last weekend I spontaneously stopped at a Nsale in Charlotte, NC on our way to Greenville for a weekend wedding. I wouldn't normally derail our plans to shop (who am I kidding?!) but in all honesty NYC doesn't have a Nordstrom department store so we made a quick stop and I picked up some sale items with fall in mind. Below are some quick finds and others worth a look for sale price. Hurry up! The sale ends August 8th and then everything is back to regular price. Now is the time to splurge on those coveted items you've been waiting for to go on sale.  Don't mind my messy hair, this was taken morning after the wedding ☺️


These are some of the tops I picked up that I'll be rotating a lot because they transition well into fall and can be layered easily with a jacket or vest on top.  I also included some accessories and shoes to put together for an entire ensemble.
