Talk about the perfect weekender: This tote bag has been my lifesaver the past few weeks. So much so that I’m even considering ordering it in the navy + lime green! Wine tote, Wendell toy carrier, computer bag, compact weekend bag – this sucker has you covered for most weekend plans. The best part? It’s a tote & a cross body all in one. So when Wendell sees a squirrel & just literally cannot this bag won’t go flying, contents spilling out all over the street. My luck, as per youjze. This bag has been my savior in a few binds. It’s the perfect size & it’s sah cahute. It also comes in khaki & lime.

If there’s one thing I can’t get enough of it’s a well tailored blazer. (Insert instagram picture of blazer section in closet) No matter the occasion, I’m always reaching for a blazer to complete my look even if it may not be the most appropriate situation (bowling night, anyone?) The right blazer can easily up the ante on an outfit & give it that finishing touch it needs to go from good to great.

Jones New York has a handful of killer blazers right now at a price point perfect for any working girl. Toss on any of these styles to go from a morning meeting, straight into the office & then take the look to drinks after work. You can never go wrong with a blazer that fits you well & lucky for you, Jones New York has one for every occasion. This mixed faux leather is my favorite option to take from desk to drinks on a casual day at the office; It gives me that little bit of leather I crave, all while being office appropriate. It’s become my new go-to piece for Fall, keeping my wardrobe looking sleek on any given day for every event. 

Check out 5 different ways to style another favorite from the collection. How would you style your new favorite black blazer?

LULU’S DRESS [IN BLACK] & BOOTS [LOVE THESE] c/0

I’m never really one for outfit changes during Fashion Week; It’s not that I don’t want to be high maintenance – who doesn’t want to deal with that? Rather I know I won’t want to be bothered by the time it takes to make the change happen. For me, Fashion Week is the same as any other day – when I get dressed for the day, I’m dressed.

That was all fine & dandy until this dress happened. The day I changed into this sucker, I was donning a more aggressive Fashion Week ensemble & this particular brunch with friends really called for something less solid gold collar around your neck & more free flowing maxi dress. So in order to be a little more low maintenance, I changed. The irony.

A girlfriend from NYC is heading into town this weekend & we’ve got another few outdoor brunches up our sleeves before the impending snowfall makes us shut-ins for the next few months. I assume I’ll wear this new favorite maxi of mine (topped with a leather jacket, of course) but what’s your go-to brunch outfit during early Fall? I’m always looking for new inspiration!
