As much as I love my New England summers, I can’t deny how beautiful a crisp fall day along the water can be as well. This Lighthouse is my happy place, has been since I was a little girl, and is during all seasons.
And do you love this Pride & Prejudice tote?? Sometimes working in publishing definitely has its perks… :)
Thank goodness for Friday– and for Friday’s Fancies! Looking at my closet the other day, I realized I am actually very cautious about going monochromatic, and especially with mixing blues… which seems funny considering that blue is probably the colors available in the most shades! So this was a challenge, but the more I look at it, the more I think I’d like to incorporate monochrome into my daily looks!
If there’s one brand that succeeds at keeping the summer vibe alive all through autumn, it is definitely Lilly Pulitzer. Every year, I think I’m in the clear once I get through the epic End of Summer Sale, and then the Fall Lookbook comes out and taunts me even more. Here are some of my current fall favorites from the line:
Please don’t go away and leave me without opportunity to wear bright blues and sundresses and plaid picnic-ready purses and nautical jewelry and ballet flats that don’t require tights. I promise I’ll be better about embracing you. No more subways when I can walk and no more warm nights spent inside.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve never been a huge fan of gingham. Shocking, right, considering my tendencies to lean toward vintage-y preppy granny looks at times? But I am attempting it today, in honor of Friday’s Fancies, and actually am growing quite smitten with this particular little frock. Perfect for the dog days of summer.
Oh, I’m sorry, have we not discussed my love for all things related to Kate Middleton’s style lately? You’re in luck today then.
