autumn — or is it?

October 13th, 2011

One of the weirder things about living in Texas is that the weather is about twenty degrees warmer on any given day here than it is in New York.  I’m so, so excited for that come January or February, when it will still be in the fifties and sixties here, but for the past week or two, it’s been a little weird to watch all my blogger friends transition into tights and jackets when I’m still in bathing suit weather!

I’m in love with this outfit, even if it’s a little bit for cooler weather than Houston has now — and thanks so much to American Living, who sent me the sweater and bag!  It was one of my first packages that we received in our new apartment, so it felt like half a housewarming present and half an amazing style pick!  A few of my good friends across the country also participated, so be sure to check out The Concrete Catwalk, Think Thru Fashion, Runway Hippie, Like Fresh Laundry, Blonde Bedhead, and Kansas Catwalk for their outfits created with American Living clothes and accessories!

Last but not least… I’m headed to Houston Fashion Week tonight!  I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect when I heard about it months ago, but I’m so excited to see collections from Bibhu Mohapatra and Robert Rodriguez tonight!  Who knows — maybe there is great fashion outside NYC?!

American Living sweater and bag, Club Monaco Ella skirt, gifted B Brian Atwood pumps, Hermes bangle, Kenneth Jay Lane earrings.

    This sweater is gorgeous – and guess what? We are still having 86 degree weather days up here. So weird! I have no idea how, because that’s so unusual for us. Texas will be hot year-round for yaa.

    Can’t wait to see pics from HFW! xo

    It’s pouring down raining today in Maryland so I am quite envious of your bathing suit weather!

    That American Living sweater looks so cozy. Reading your blog now makes me so nostalgic for home- can’t wait to be back in Texas for Thanksgiving. Have fun at fashion week and enjoy the warm weather!

    It IS weird to see you in the woodsy setting, lol.
    Glad to see you are settling in well in Houston- fashionably of course.
    Love that cozy sweater paired w the Maxi:)

    Cute outfit and you look so relaxed now that you are living in Texas.  So do you know when the sweater will be available for the rest of us?  I really do like it and since it’s American Living I might be able to afford it!
