Fall is my favorite time of the year in Texas — when the heat and humidity of the deep summer melts away, it feels like I’m living in a tropical paradise. The weather calls for light dresses and tank tops, and the days are long and sunny until daylight savings hits. As much as I miss the changing seasons in the Northeast, I love my long summers here in the south!
And what better pick for a late summer night than these mirrored Foster Grant aviators? These have been my favorite sunglasses all summer long, and they’re not going away anytime soon! I love the classic aviator style, and the reflection on the lens makes them fresh and modern. Swoon! (If you haven’t seen them yet, Foster Grant sunnies can be found everywhere from CVS to Walmart — they’re super affordable and come in a ton of amazing styles!)
I matched them with this new scarf top — the print is perfect for a hot evening, or it could be adorable under a blazer (and in case you want something with a little more coverage, I’ve linked to some other options below). Here’s to summer nights!
One reason I’m actually sort of happy I didn’t go to Fashion Week: Bear got his first cold last week, and I promptly caught it from him about two days later. So I’ve been completely knocked out this weekend, and very relieved I wasn’t dealing with traveling, hotels, crowds, or anything NYFW-related these past few days.
However, back when I thought I was going, I bought a few cute little outfits as potential choices to bring with me, and this romper is one. I’m not sure it would have ultimately made the cut — it’s a little too casual for Lincoln Center, not quite my A-Game style. On the other hand, for everyday life here in Houston, I completely love it. (Also, the deep-V is incredibly breastfeeding-friendly… which most of my clothing choices revolve around these days!)
On the model, this was worn with nothing underneath (check it out here), which, OMG — they did a great job pinning it or something. Because I put it on without anything underneath… and I was naked. Fortunately, this little bandeau gave me a little coverage, and I think a tank could work underneath too.
And for those of you who like the style, I’ve linked to a few other cute options below! xo

If there’s one thing I update in my wardrobe every season, it’s my favorite pair of jeans.
I know, I know. Shouldn’t I pick out a new trend? Crop tops or leather or something novelty-ish and cool?
Nope. The pieces I reach for, day after day, aren’t those novelty trends. They’re denim.
This season, I’ve fallen completely in love with this par of Low Rise Slim Jeans from Land’s End. (Yes, Land’s End.) They’re the perfect fit and come in multiple different lenghts, so even petite girls like me can find the perfect fit! (The pair I’m wearing is size 2 and a 30″ inseam, if you’re curious!) I rolled them up a tiny bit at the cuff, but they fit great with or without that little accent. The quality is amazing and I love their dark wash!
And even better — they’re a total bargain at $69! For a girl who usually spends $150 or $200 on the pair of perfect jeans each season, these are completely mind-blowing. I need them in every style!
I paired these jeans with this adorable breton-striped top and a denim jacket, both from Land’s End too. The denim jacket is a total find as well — their fabric is soft, classic, and looks great dressed up or down. It has just enough stretch to flatter, but not so much that you have trouble moving or breathing. For this new mom who’s on the go constantly, they’re the perfect pair.
