A Look Back at Summer (And A Giveaway!)

With Labor Day weekend here signaling the end of summer, today I'm doing a little retrospective on  some of my favorite ensembles from the summer season (in addition to an exciting giveaway below!).

For outfit details and more photos, you can click each individual picture which will bring you straight back to that post : )

So since we're all reasonably depressed about the impending end to summer, I thought there would be no better way to mark the conclusion of the season and get ready for fall than facilitating a little retail therapy.  To start, be sure to check out all of the crazy good labor day sales going on by perusing my pinterest wishlist board here or the SHOP page here for all of my sale picks!

And now for the main event... Starting today, and going for the next week, I'll be hosting the giveaway of three (yep, THREE!) $150 giftcards to Nordstrom!  There's no better place to refresh your fall wardrobe, so read up on the multiple ways to enter below and get cracking...

Blouse: Topshop (also love this one and more below)  |  Pants: Theyskens' Theory (similar here and here)  |  Shoes: Steve Madden (old but very similar here and also love these ones)  |  Blazer: Brooks Brothers  |  Bracelets: Alex and Ani  |  Ring: c/o Henri Bendel  |  Polish: Essie (Adore-A-Ball)

As you may have noticed, I've been on a bit of a black and white binge lately.  The simplified color palette has been mostly inadvertent, but somehow really refreshing in the transition to fall.  If you're a color fan (like I am, usually), don't worry, I promise I haven't made any kind of chromatic vow of silence.  Many more bright hues to come!


Hit the Hay

Skirt: Trina Turk |  Boots: Cole Haan  |  Shirt: c/o Brooks Brothers (similar here and here)  |  Jacket: Michael Kors  |  Sunglasses: Nina Ricci (similar here, here and here)  |  Bracelets: Alex and Ani  |  Rings: Gorjana (similar here)  |  Polish: Essie (Adore-A-Ball)

Today I'm featuring more of my favorite fall boot(ie)s from Nordstrom.  As you know from this post last week, I'm all about upping your boot game this fall, but for me, there are few specimen in the footwear category that can get away with all form and no function.  Luckily, I landed on another pair of boots from Nordstrom that don't force the choice.  These suckers are as comfortable as they are cute and between today's post and this post from London where I styled the same pair, you can see that the styling (and geographical) options are nearly endless.  From tube stop to farm field, I guess you could say that these boots can really... make hay... of any sartorial situation.  (I'm sorry, I had to.) 

These shots were snapped while I was away from NYC visiting family in Wisconsin.  Since nothing makes me feel more like fall than the gorgeous autumnal landscapes of my home state, I thought it would be the perfect setting to harken in the new season and get increasingly excited that it's time for summer to... hit the hay.  Fall, here we come.  

Happy Monday!

(It took a LOT of self control to use only two hay puns in this entire post.)
