H&M Chambray Shirt and Current/Elliot Jeans in Leopard In The Park
Fall definitely hit NYC this week—it came on us suddenly, but we couldn’t be more excited for leather jackets, dark nail polish, and layers on layers. But when we think about our fall wardrobes, there’s nothing more important than some great denim. A good skinny jean is an essential for chillier weather, and we love a slouchy chambray shirt or unexpected denim jacket when temps hit the 60s. We took a browse through our archives for some fall jean inspiration—get ready for fall denim!

My trip to San Francisco last week was a fabulously refreshing way to end the summer. I stayed with my friend (also named Rebecca!) and her husband in their apartment in The Mission, a super chic neighborhood with the cutest independent boutiques, coolest bakeries, and BEST restaurants. My introduction to the area was dinner at a local Puerto Rican food pop-up restaurant—I cannot express how amazing my creamy shrimp and rice was. Shoutouts to Tartine, Bar Tartine, Arizmendi, and Cream for also making my trip super yummy. Needless to say, if I ever move to San Fran, I’m living in The Mission and going out for every meal. At night, I got to see a bit of the nightlife scene there. I met up with my friend Shawn, a graffiti artist who is currently creating murals for local startups and businesses. It’s great to see childhood friends so successful and happy in what they’re doing.
Union Street is pretty cool. We spent half a day brunching and shopping there. Then after walking to along the Marina for a bit, we decided to spend the rest of our day in Sausalito. Sausalito is just a ferry ride away from San Fran, and the ride itself offers breathtaking views of Bay Bridge and the skyline. Of course, it also helped that we prepared a feast of cheese, fresh figs, and flatbread from the Ferry Building for the journey. Those views look 50x better when you’re downing artisan blue cheese on a clear day with seventies temperatures and no humidity! Sausalito is a bit touristy, but we explored the untouched roads above the main street. The houses are beautiful with great views of the marina—here’s hoping I can afford a vacation home there and an apartment in San Francisco someday. BIG DREAMS. In the meantime, I’ll just have to come visit my friends every year and crash with them. But really… every year, please.
Ostwald Helgason SS15 Fashion Show
Renee’s been going absolutely insane with fashion week and I’ve been prepping for fall beauty events. Needless to say, we haven’t had much time to ourselves recently. Yesterday, I finally managed to drag myself out to the Ostwald Helgason SS15 show at Milk Studios. I am absolutely in love with this line—it’s so fun, young, and has just the perfect amount of quirk. The show this season was incredibly simple, yet chic with no special effects and no elaborate backdrop. The models wore braids and flat sandals, which, I’m sure, was a much-welcomed departure from the rest of their schedule! I managed to take some great close-ups of the looks, but alas, couldn’t quite capture the amazing texture combinations and effortless flounce of the skirts on the dresses. You and I will both have to check the collection out again once it’s in-store next year. Sign me up for anything that has one of those cute little crochet flowers on it, please!
Larsson & Jennings CM Gold-Plated Watch $350
There’s nothing better than a solid gold watch. Solid, meaning super stylish yet versatile, not 100% gold. That’s why the price is SO amazing—it’s gold-plated. This cheap and chic accessory is enough for our everyday—we’ll save our (nonexistent!) Cartier Ballon Bleus and Rolex Oysters for only special occasions. It’s true though, a great watch is hard to find, no matter the price. This Larsson & Jennings piece is a perfect arm party addition to a casual tank top or all-black fashion work uniform. We guarantee the gold will pop with any monochromatic outfit—add a bright fuchsia lipstick for extra effect!
