My Fall Uniform #1

My Fall Uniform #1 all started at this Fashion Week, when Catherine and I found these perfect striped sweaters at Zara. We wore them constantly throughout the weekend and I have been living in chunky knits ever since - well, weather permitting. With my favorite sweaters I like to throw on a pair of skinny jeans (these Mott and Bow are my go-to) + slides for the perfectly laid back, yet clearly styled look! And its no surprise that this usually happens in various combinations of black and white. So here are a few pieces inspired by numero uno fall look.

So, naturally, here are some photos of the beautiful store and a few of our favorite pieces you can snag at 20% off right now.

How I Chose My Bridesmaids Dress

When Cath told me that we were all going to get to pick out our bridesmaids dresses I was SO excited.  I did this for my bridesmaids at my wedding and it was such fun and gave the photos such dimension.  Catherine gave us one guideline: black and we were free to go from there.

Lately on the 'Gram: Fall + NYFW

September means many things in my world.  It means that my husband goes back to work,  the weather begins to cool and of course, NYFW.  You'll have to stay tuned here and on The Crystal Press for more coverage from our trip this year, but here are a few snaps from my instagram / the past few weeks.

YSL : The Perfection of Style

Just when I thought I couldn't love my hometown of Richmond even more, we got lucky enough to have the Yves Saint Laurent The Perfection of Style exhibit come to the VMFA.  In typical fashion, I waited until the last weekend to go and see it and thank goodness I did.  I was able to drag my husband John with me, as Catherine had already gone, and I think he actually enjoyed it also.

A Weekend On Shelter Island

Last week, John and I made the long journey from Richmond up to Shelter Island, NY where he grew up visiting his Grandpa with his family.  He hadn't been back in something like 8 years, so experiencing the island with him was really something special.  I have never been anywhere quite like it and it is kind of hard to truly explain it.  Gorgeous coastlines, gorgeous homes and a very unique general ambiance.  So, here I'm rounding up a few highlights, enjoy!

RAILS: The Perfect Fall Transition Piece

Well guys, I say this every year but how the heck is it already the end of summer! Where did the time go?  Between an absolutely crazy spring of weddings on weddings then kicking off summer with my sister's wedding, I thought once that was all over it was going to be the one summer to go by slowly, savoring each moment.  Boyyyy was I wrong.  What did I even do all summer? Sure, there were Busch Gardens trips and plenty of pool days but seriously, what happened! Now it is almost fall, John went back to school today and I have a laundry list of things to do around the house, for ze blog and of course preparing for NYFW.  Sheeesh, not enough hours in the day, I'm telling you.
