You guys! Atlanta Style Series is baaaaaaaack! We are kicking off our fall series today with boots of course. What else would we kick off fall with? Boots are one of the best things about fall. I love that the four of us all went with totally different boot-wearing styles. A dress plus short booties. Check. Skinny jeans + cute top with knee-high boots. Check. Pencil skirt + tee with knee high boots. Check. Shorts + Blouse with booties. Check. Tons of options!
We are all wearing Sole Society boots in today’s post, and you can find the pair I’m wearing here. While the temperates certainly aren’t feeling like fall just yet (and it isn’t technically fall until next Tuesday), it does feel a little silly wearing summer’s sandals in mid-September. I think a mid-heel bootie like this is the perfect transition piece to wear throughout faux fall and into real fall fall. Know what I mean?

Here’s a quick look at my quick last minute outfit last Friday night grabbing dinner at Lemongrass with my sister. Lizzy is always early and I am always late – by the time I realized she was half way to the restaurant I hadn’t even started getting ready yet. Needless to say, I got ready in about 5 seconds, (hence the ponytail), but still loved this easy combo. Fitted top + midi skirt = officially my comfort zone, people. This looked ended up being slightly Parisian, no?
This skirt I’ve worn several times on the blog before, (here and here for example). It seems to be one of those items that can “go” in any season. I have to actually take note to space out when I wear it because otherwise I’d wear it all the time. Who knew this H&M skirt would kind of be a life-saver? This shirt is also one of my favorites. (Last seen in this post from the 4th of July.) There are only 2 sizes left now, but there are several similar items at Asos.
Housekeeping Note: I’ve been trying to water the plant known as facebook lately, and I finally hit 1,000 likes yesterday! Woo! Just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who has recently “liked” my page and is now following along. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I am going to do an exclusive giveaway just to facebook fans in honor of hitting the milestone so stay tuned!
I hope everyone is having a fabulous week! Thank you so much for stopping by today. PS – I’d love to hear from you if you have any requests for fall fashion posts. Please comment below or email me at email@example.com.
PS – Thank you to Lizzy for snapping these pics!0 Comments /

I didn’t intend for this to be a “rule-breaking” moment, but as I was writing this post I realized I’m breaking so many rules all in one outfit. White after Labor Day. Check. (Love breaking this rule.) Mixing silver and gold. Check. (Break this one all the time.) Kitten heels, aka the mullet of heels. Done. Anything else? (For the record, I don’t endorse all kitten heels. These I just happen to be into.) This was my outfit for the second half of Day 2 of fashion week. Big thank you to the Red Dress Boutique for sending over this dress right before I left for fashion week! PS – My NYFW Day 1 recap is here, and Day 2 recap here.
How was everyone’s weekend? Thank you so much for stopping by today! I’ve got another fun week in store on the blog so stay tuned. xo

Happy Friday friends! Today’s look is what I wore for the first part of Day 2 of fashion week. You can read a full recap of what I did on Day 2 below if you’re interested. (Day 1 recap here.)
This little two-piece was so cute and inexpensive, I just couldn’t pass it up. I have Asos premier, which means I get 2 day free shipping anytime. (Amazing!) Even if you don’t have Asos premier (which I think is $20 a year .. kind of like a Barnes and Noble card, ha) Asos has free shipping both ways, all the time, no minimum. What? It’s been years since I first started shopping at Asos but honestly the free shipping both ways thing never ceases to impress me. Because of this, I have kind of made a tradition now of placing a last minute “extras” order from Asos 3 days before I leave for fashion week, (and any big trip for that matter). I plan most outfits in advance, mostly with things I already have, but inevitably there are a few things I still need. This time I really needed a couple of just basic black dresses that could be dresses up or down, along with a few other basic things. This two-piece set I threw in at the last minute. Whoops! One black dress I thought might look awkward I ended up loving (coming soon to the blog). Another dress I was banking on as being a great basic, ended up being too boring. (I’m sending it back.) That is the beauty of Asos though. You can order a ton of stuff and then just send back whatever didn’t work out. They even send you the shipping label for returns. Thank you Asos for being awesome.

Fashion Week Recap Day 2: On Day 2 I woke up at 7:00 am, ready to go go go. (This only happens during fashion week I am so not a morning person.) I spent the first part of morning catching up on emails, texts and let’s be honest, instagram, trying to get set for the day. First on the agenda was to meet up with Lydia to shoot these pics! After we shot, we attempted to go to Starbucks to get some fuel before my first show and her long day of shoots, but the line was out. the. door. It is always bad at that Starbucks during fashion week but wowza. Duane Reade to the rescue on a quick snack before heading off to my first show, Mark & Estel. After the show, I had to quickly pack up my room at Empire Hotel, as I was moving in with my friend Amanda on the Upper East Side for the remainder of the trip. I went ahead and changed into outfit #2 since I knew it was going to be a long afternoon and my bags were going into storage. Next up was the Carmen Marc Valvo show, followed by a Trina Turk event, and then back to the Empire Lobby to meet up with some friends. I shot my second outfit of the day with Lydia at this point – and I was her 21st outfit of the day! We decided we had probably broken an outfit-taking record. After sharing some fries and rosé, (ha!) with Grace, Jessica and Lydia, I headed off to William Okpo to meet up with Alex and some other friends. A group of us ended up grabbing drinks and dinner after the show. We planned to all drop off our goody bags and do another outfit change and meet back up somewhere on the UES. Of course once I made it to Amanda’s she and I had so much to catch up on, I never made it out with the girls. Did I mention Amanda had chocolates on my pillow, as well as an entire electrical outlet strip extension cord next to my bed? She is the best hostess ever. I immediately hooked up all my devices! Phone, tablet, charger, other charger … (Here’s what she hand delivered me the next morning while I was still in bed! Empire Hotel can’t beat that.) Amanda and I ended up getting waffles at a cafe late night. If you’re keeping score here, that’s a Duane Reade snack for “breakfast” ish, (3 bites of yogurt that wasn’t good), a few fries and rosé for a 4:30 “lunch,” then 2 dinners. Several hours apart. But still, 2 dinners. Take that fashion week.

Only in New York do I feel the need to bust out my favorite glam vintage number first thing in the morning for a few appointments. Unless you’ve been reading along since 2012, you probably don’t remember when I first picked up this guy. The only other time I’ve worn it was last year for our anniversary dinner. I wrote then that I felt like it really needed to be worn at Paris Fashion Week but since PFW STILL hasn’t come calling yet (SO weird), I might as well take it out for a twirl every now and then. In fact, it almost always goes in my luggage for New York Fashion Week, it just rarely makes the cut. This year I decided to just go for it. Because .. Yolo.
As for now, it will go back to hanging in my closet right in the front so I can look at it all the time. What is one of your most cherished items in your closet? Do tell. This one is pretty high on my list.3 Comments /
