It’s that weird transitional time in New York when fall is just starting to hit and we’re seeing everything from 50 to 80 degrees depending on the day of the week. In my head this is the perfect time of year for a sweater and mini skirt combo…I guess I’m dressing my top half for fall and my bottom half for summer. It worked out pretty well for a day at the park with Rebecca—we had a lot of fun watching some kids with their toy boats out on the water!

It’s already starting to get chilly, and we can see fall fast approaching! Yesterday while running through the rain in Midtown, I realized that the last time I bought rain boots was more than five years ago. I still have them—they’re Burberry and very beat up. Needless to say, rain boots would be a solid purchase for this fall. I would also LOVE a pair of great riding boots for winter. In doing some research and reviewing my bills (yikes!), I realized that if I could get rain boots that double as riding boots, I’d save a ton of money. Enter these Aigles! They are made from “slush,” Aigle’s patented rubber that looks just like leather. They’re so functional and PRETTY. I’d love to wear them with a preppy vest or puffer and plaid scarf. I guess I could throw in a Missoni umbrella for a fun fashion edge… after all, they’re on sale at Neiman Marcus Last Call right now!
Rebecca is wearing a Rag & Bone Denim Vest, H&M Sweatshirt, Thakoon Addition Leather Shorts, Wildfox Bel Air Sunglasses, Marc Jacobs Bag, Nixon Kensington Watch, and Inkkas Blackbird High Top Sneakers.
Central Park this past weekend was hot in the sun, cool in the shade… very transitional weather that I had no idea how to dress for! I decided to throw on a simple sweatshirt (can’t lose with that!), leather shorts, and a denim vest for good measure. I thought I’d go super “LA” and wear my Wildfox sunnies and high tops. I’m completely and utterly in love with my new Inkkas. I bought them a supercute boutique in Austin. They’re really affordable, handmade by local artisans in Peru, and also charitable! Each pair benefits the OneShoeOneTree project, which plants trees to fight deforestation. My Inkkas were perfect for our Central Park watch-the-leaves stroll!
Lanvin Fran Fringe Leather and Jersey Gloves $1285
There’s nothing sexier (and warmer!) than a great long pair of black leather gloves. We both have a go-to pair, but they don’t compete with these fabulous fringed ones from Lanvin. They definitely take “sexy” to a new level! Imagine wearing these with a little black dress and thigh-high boots… why not have a western meets New York nightlife theme to your look? We’re looking at anything fringe this fall and these are a great start. Next stop, a new Proenza Schouler PS1 mini fringed crossbody to match!

It was all about the flat this summer (Birks and Tevas, anyone?) and the trend isn’t going anywhere for fall—my feet definitely are not complaining! I’ve been seeing flats everywhere in New York and London street style shots, and I’m feeling an all white leather sneaker to dress down an embellished dress (this Common Projects pair is absolute perfection!) or a nice, slightly chunky menswear-inspired loafer for skinny jeans with a flash of ankle. When did flats become so sexy?
