MY GROWN UP HOODIE

Is it just me or did everyone have a favorite hoodie in high school? I remember mine, it was bright blue from Abercrombie & Fitch and it had the traditional logo in a deeper navy blue. I loved that hoodie, I used to spray it in my favorite perfume when I’d get ready for the first football game of the season. I often think about how the younger Jackie used to dress and I burst out laughing. Today, I would NEVER douse an article of clothing in perfume or wear a tattoo choker necklace—what was I thinking?! While I’ve since retired my Abercrombie & Fitch hoodie, that doesn’t mean I don’t have a selection  in my fall wardrobe. Hoodies are like comfort food, they make you feel good and perhaps sometimes they look too casual, there are ways you can make them appropriate. This black and white chevron hoodie from J. Jill is extremely thick and cozy, and  it’s definitely the most sophisticated hoodie I’ve ever owned. I mean it’s probably not something 15 year old Jackie would wear, but perfect for the here and now. I’m pretty sure this is going to become my favorite adult life hoodie.

GLIMPSE OF FALL

I know everyone is panicking that summer’s  over but it’s not OFFICIALLY over until September 22nd. We still have time to wear some of our favorite sleeveless tops and maxi dresses. It really doesn’t even feel like September, we’re experiencing another heatwave making it even harder to believe that NYFW is actually here. This will be my first NYFW not in attendance, since it happens to fall in the midst of my big move! It’s definitely bittersweet, but I have so much to think about that I wouldn’t be able to give it my full attention anyway. While I’m hanging on to the last weeks of summer with a death grip on my flip flops and cutoffs, I am excited for fall. I mean I already had my first PSL, aggressive—I know. I’ve slowly been gathering pieces for my fall wardrobe and wanted to share with you a pair of my favorite new pants. These navy windowpane ankle pants from J. Jill will be well worn this season, they’re lightweight and manage to flow easily with a variety of color palettes. I paired them with this oversized sleeveless knit tunic from Banana Republic and my two toned Jessica Simpson pumps. This is sure to be a staple fall outfit. And I still have some summer looks to share with you because I’m in serious denial, but I hope you enjoyed this glimpse of fall!
