We've finally been having those beautiful, cool autumn days here in New York and it feels like it might actually stick this time. I love this time of year, I look forward to it, but dressing for it can be tricky, especially if you have to wait on a subway platform for more than three minutes. 

Lately I have been wearing a lot of lightweight layers to help keep myself balanced. This outfit is a perfect example of that; a loose knit sweater, layered with a scarf and leather jacket, skinny ankle jeans, and boots. A look that is quickly becoming my uniform. 

Yesterday was JD's birthday so we got up early and went out for a celebratory brunch and a walk around Washington Square Park before we both went off to work. For a casual cool weekend look 
I paired this cozy lightweight sweater and faded black jeans from Piperlime with my Margot boots, a colorful scarf, and a jacket just in case. It was one of those days where it was warm in the sun but chilly in the shade. 

And you guessed it, still have absolutely no idea where this scarf came from. The answer did not come to me while in the ladies room at MSG as "Little Lies" echoed through the walls in a that foggy way that accompanies drinking beer through a straw. What a shame.

  10. Your'e so right about the weather here in NY being tricky when it comes to dressing. I'm right there with you with the need for light layers this time of year. That Pim and Larkin sweater is perfect! I love the relaxed feel and I've never met a stripe I didn't like! Love how you paired it with jeans and booties for an easy and effortless look!
