Things I’m Into – End of Summer and Fall 2019

I’ve been “into” a variety of new and exciting things this summer and I’m overly excited to head into the Fall with a fresh perspective! Current trends that can easily transition into the cooler months.

Animal Print

Wearing my tropic of c swimsuit in “the c” in shade “mama africa.” Vivienne is wearing her Spearmint Love Long Sleeve Skirted Bodysuit in Leopard. This trend will be here all winter – love that its back!

Everlane Crew Neck Cashmere Sweater

High quality basics without the traditional retail markup. I meannnnn – I own this sweater in almost every color they produce. $100 for cashmere? You can’t beat that! Highly recommend, dearly love. Just got the color Loden (pictured). Shop using my link.

Hanes Comfort Soft Boys T Shirts

In my Boys’ Tee

Cheap white tees for boys that fit like a baby tee on a woman. I buy size Boys Large from Amazon. Easy white t-shirt that looks great with a pair of jeans or with a skirt, cutoff shorts, literally anything.

My Lack of Color Australia hats were a great addition to this summer – wore them everywhere I went!

Glossier Berry Balm Dot Com

I’ve been wearing Berry flavor since launch in early August. *Gifted. I love it though – favorite shade & flavor lately and I’m obsessed with the slight color it provides.

Solly Baby Wrap

Wine tasting while baby carrying at Laurel Lake Vineyard in Laurel, NY

One of my favorite baby gifts I’ve received to date. Solly Baby Wrap has been the perfect accessory all summer long! Solly comes in many beautiful colors – this shade was perfect for me during summer months. Vivi always felt comfortable and secure, plus the fabric is really breathable!

Poolside Bags

Summer Staples

All summer long. Wore this Beach Bling Ice Bucket bag from Poolside Bags with a bandana from LoveShackFancy tied around the handle for an added touch. Wore with dresses and White Canvas Keds all summer long. Look for new Poolside Bags styles launching for fall / winter.

Everlane Slide Sandal

Really beautiful, luxury basics at really fair, affordable prices.

These super minimal, chic and simple slides from Everlane have become a staple in my wardrobe. An everyday sandal. Can literally be worn with anything and everything from sundresses to denim cutoffs. They’re made in Italy (luxe) and the price point is only $98.

The bright navy blue feels anything but basic… these blue sandals are not the ordinary/typical black or tan (which are both beautiful btw). I love that the navy can pair well with black and with virtually any outfit you can come up with. Plus they’re comfortable and the leather feels amazing.

Everlane Track Pants are LIFE

Pants are not an article of clothing that I particularly like. I don’t connect with pants. I just wear them because its socially acceptable required and also I live in New York and it’s cold here. Basically – pants are necessary at times.

I don’t connect with pants because I have a difficult time finding pants that fit me well. When I do however, find a pair of pants that I likeeeeee – I know they need to be documented.

Everlane just lanched their GoWeave fabric with 2 different styles of pants – the Crop Trouser and the Track Pants.

“The Crop Trouser is a straight, classic fit that hits right at the ankle, and the Track Pant is a sportier look with a comfortable elastic waistband and discreet ankle zips. Made from the same new lightweight, wrinkle-resistant fabric, both pant styles are the perfect go-to pants for the week into the weekend.”

Everlane does fashion that just makes sense. These versatile pants are comfy AF, yet dressy enough to be paired with heels. Everlane track pants paired with pumps and an American Apparel bodysuit and a oversize scarf sweater is one outfit choice. Another outfit would be the Everlane track pants with a flat Superga sneaker, white or grey tee shirt and a long trench on a rainy day. Comfortable as anything, they have a stretchy elastic waistband so you can pull them right up over last night’s pizza and cocktails! Pair with a chunky heel and you’re good to go. The polished and tapered look also has a zip-up bottom so you can style however you please!

I like the fit and the fabric definitely does not let on to the fact that the waistband of these pants make you feel like you’re wearing comfy leggings all day. I could get down with this style in a few more basic colors, ASAP. Thanks Everlane! 🙂

Here’s another one of my favorite Everlane items (Cashmere Crew) that I just so happen to be wearing today, so I figured I’d snap a quick selfie.

Modern Backpack

The last time I purchased a backpack, I was in college, it was from The North Face and I was the coolest kid looked like every other kid on campus. That charcoal & pink backpack traveled throughout Europe and all over the USA with me; I do still love and wear it — but I needed to bring my backpack game to a more chic place.

Enter my BFF, @Kaitmills who sent me a photo of her new Herschel backpack asking if it was “chic enough” to wear to a fashion/hospitality interview in NYC? Le DUH! How fab does she look? After I realized how undeniably cool backpacks are again (from her chic fashion girl selfies below), I decided to go after these new Everlane packs I had been lusting after!

Everlane has evolved into one of my favorite new brands. I read a tag line on The Fader recently about how “Everlane turned hipsters basic,” and I kinda love that because I ❤ hipsters and I ❤ basics (the clothes, not the persona). As seen in my previous post about their “Everyday Anorak”,  Everlane manufactures high quality clothing & accessories at affordable prices. They cut out the middle man and consumers reap the benefits. After weeks of awesome social media hype & presence, Everlane launched these great backpacks. I watched their Snapchat story everyday (blushing) – but you all know I’m obsessed with social media anyway.

Very versatile! I purchased in the larger size, obv because I carry FAR too much (but the mini is awesome too!) in the “Reverse Denim & Black Leather” color.

unnamed-31

Love the black leather detailing! This pack has pockets for all things; fits a MacBook, iPhone, side pockets for a water bottle/whatever else you want easy access to, inside pockets, front zipper pocket for small items, etc. Highly recommend this item for back to school or around the city or anywhere your travels take you. Gets endless compliments and “where’d you get that bag?” comments galore!

Everyday Anorak

The actual best all year round jacket!

Spring is coming! LMAO – using that phrase very loosely since New York is still bitter cold at 37 degrees on Monday, March 23rd. Anyway, spring is apparently going to get here one day in the near future. Or so we hope… 37 degrees to 77 degrees will likely be the case, but whatever. A girl can be hopeful!

Regardless – it’s still cold, and in the “spring” or pseudo springit rains. So it’s very wet, obv and chic solutions are VERY MUCH NEEDED.

Found this amazing jacket at Everlane.com (check it out in the link). Everlane offers designer quality goods without the 5x markup that usually exists. The anorak I purchased in Stone (seen in the photo) is beyond perfect. The fit is slightly oversize but sits really well on the body and its true to size. The jacket is soft, it’s long enough, it has a hood to protect you from the rain, lots of pockets, and great details. The Stone color matches well with black, brown, denim, white, really anything anything! This jacket is FAR beyond a basic. It’s basic enough to be worn day-to-day, yet elevated enough that when you’re wearing it, everyone will ask you where you got it. Highly recommend, combat the elements this Spring with me in this Everlane Anorak Jacket.
