Can you all tell that fall is more than is HERE in the great north!
I think I'm about 1-2 months off in my seasonal wardrobe. I start wearing summer clothes about a month later than the rest of you, and fall and winter clothes 1- 2 months sooner! This outfit is a re-creation of a look I was inspired by lately, trying to re-create it ~ I bet you can guess which magazine I spotted this look in!

  3. wow, you did fab! totally inspirational layering!!

  4. You looked fantastic! Love that re-created outfit and that wonderful background!

  5. that is SUPER CUTE and so early fall friendly ! I love the re-creation of the inspiration- great job! I live in upstate NY (next to the lake)- leaves are DEF starting to fall here. :( Its a little greener here next to the beach because the temps stay milder a little longer

  6. I am in love with this outfit!! It is so stylish and chic!! I am going to warn you right now, I might be copying you in the near future. I hope that is ok. =)

    p.s. I CAN'T BELIEVE you got those shoes for $27.50... AMAZING, AMAZING!! Don't you just love Ebay!

  7. You put your outfits together so perfectly! I'm in an crazy climate. I get into my fall clothes about 1-2 months after everyone else... which means many months after you!

    And your pictures are always gorgeous! Any tips for the rest of us?

  8. First of all, the pictures themselves are gorgeous! Whoever takes your photos has a good eye for one. Secondly, this outfit is so stylish! You look lovely. And last but not least, you nailed the re-creation perfectly! If I didn't know any better, I would say that you are right out of a J-Crew magazine. This whole post is perfection.

  9. I've been looking for a long cardigan and I just can't seem to find the right one! Love yours. Very comfy looking.

  10. I guess J-Crew and I was right... which meant you captured the essence of their look. I did this even before seeing the actual photo... you did a great job of that!

    :) You look great.

  11. love ur pic.... and the quote!
    i just hated when people have the knowledge but, just won't share it!

  12. i absolutely LOVE this outfit. the j crew, anthro, and urban outfitters catalogs are always a great source of style inspiration for me, and your version is just as fun as the original!
