balancing act

Going to keep things short and sweet today...

There are many reasons that Autumn is my favorite of the seasons, as "basic" or whatever as that may sound. Today's reason is the ability to wear this jacket. With all of the ups and downs in temperature, you finally get to wear those in-between weather jackets and blazers without having to stuff them under a coat and melt into a puddle on the subway platform. Here in New York we get on average about two weeks of that glorious weather if we are lucky. This year it seems to be sticking around for a little longer (though I did break out my winter coat yesterday). As a result, I have been trying to balance my layers to remain comfortable in all situations. I'm not super thrilled about being too hot or too cold, hence the balancing act. Pairing sweaters and skirts has long been one of my favorite looks. With all of the lace details on both my sweater and skirt, I thought the addition of a tough but still feminine military inspired jacket and ankle boots would help give me a little bit more of an edge.

  2. That Rag & Bone jacket is the perfect fall staple. I love the military vibe especially paired with a skirt. Did I mention I love your bangs?
