READY, SET, COAT SEASON!

Details: J.Jill grey ‘Chelsea’ coat, here | French Connection light oatmeal high-neck sweater via Marshall’s, here  |

The time has come for us to fully load our closets with warm knits, wool socks and of course, coats. I have a bit of a problem with all clothes, but coats are my biggest weakness. I can never seem to have enough and one of my latest finds is this dark grey button-front coat ‘Chelsea Coat’ from J.Jill. I really like that it’s an easy coat to layer and work with. What I mean by that is, it’s a coat that has a lot of flexibility, it’s much less stiff, which makes it perfect for crisp fall days like today. I layered it over a super comfy and ultr-soft sweater, which is pretty thick and I still felt free and could move my arms easily. I guess if I could describe this coat in one word it would be: comfort. I feel 100% comfortable and even though it feels lightweight, it keeps you warm. Not to mention, I love a good collar and this one screams sophistication, am I right?!

This will not be the only new coat in my closet this season, but it will absolutely be one of my favorites.

Tell me: what will be your go-to coat this fall!?

NEVER ENOUGH CLOTHES

Details: LOFT Striped Drop Shoulder sweater, here | LOFT leggings in seamed ponte, here 

I’m having one of those “I don’t have enough fall clothes moments,” which I know is completely crazy but I just feel like when fall rolls around I never have enough sweaters that I truly love. After cleaning out my closet a couple weeks ago, I really did get rid of a good chunk of clothes and started to narrow down what is worth keeping. It’s super difficult for me to purge clothing because I always think there’s still a chance I could wear something again which is more likely than not, never the case. I kicked off my fall shopping at LOFT and picked up a few must-haves including this super chic striped sweater. I really love the wide sleeves and the high mock neck. I put together an ultra simple look that includes these super comfy black LOFT leggings. I’ve been relying on the same pair of black leggings from J.Crew, but they’ve had their day and now I’m swapping them out for this new crisp black pair. They’re super comfortable and have been my go-to when I’m not in the mood to rock denim.

I’m still working on the perfect fall wardrobe, but until then I will continue to lose some of those not-so-must-haves currently hanging in my closet. Wish me luck!

SUMMER COMFORT: THE MAXI SKIRT

Details: Printed Easy Knit Maxi Skirt c/o J.Jill, here |

It’s maxi skirt season! I’ve been on vacation this week and I’ve never felt more relaxed. I went on a bit of a staycation and ventured to my family’s beach house on the Long Island Sound in Connecticut. My days have been spent basking in the sun from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. reading and relaxing. I feel so refreshed and the first time I put on my makeup was yesterday and it felt so foreign to me. I can’t say that my style has been on point this week because it’s been driven by comfort and I have NO problems with that. However, I’m planning on going out to dinner tonight and the closest thing to acceptable comfort is this colorful printed maxi from J.Jill. It’s super comfortable and looks good with a variety of colors: white, black, navy, purple and even turquoise. It’s flowy and because it’s available in petite it isn’t too long like most maxis are on me. I’m hanging on to these last few days of vacation and am planning on more sun, one more book and my favorite bathing suit. What are your plans for the weekend?
