Guys it feels like I barely blinked and summer’s already over! Luckily, I’ll be able to enjoy warm weather for a bit longer but all of my teacher friends are getting ready to head back to their classrooms and lately the roads have been full of school buses. It felt fitting to share a first day outfit as well as ten pieces that you can wear now and later.10 early fall staples you can wear now and later! Click To Tweet
Apologies in advanced for the short and sweet nature of this post. This weekend was amazing; my younger brother turned 21 & my aunt and cousin flew in from California. It felt so good to uncharge and be surrounded by family. Another thing that felt good? The cooler weather! Which is why today I’m sharing how to wear a velvet tee from summer to fall.

Cheers for Friday! This week has been absolutely crazy; I had a great time watching the Wildcats get a win over Duke on Tuesday only to get stranded in Chicago for all of Wednesday. Being home and sleeping in my own bed has been so, so good. -Insert praise hands emoji-
I’m looking forward to getting work out of the way today so I can celebrate my dad’s birthday tonight. Pretty sure I’ll never be able to top surprising him with Wegman’s pancake mix (thanks a million, Amazon), but hopefully he likes this year’s gift.
This white Oxford from Brooks Brothers is a classic closet staple because it can be office or weekend appropriate and is great for layering in the cooler months. I cuffed the sleeves over my gray and navy houndstooth sweater here.
I talked about this skirt in my Instagram roundup at the beginning of this week and how I was struggling to style it because of the cut. I decided to fully embrace that it sits lower on my hips and somewhat masked the the low ride by not tucking my top into the skirt.
These accessories feel like they belong together to me. I bought my tortoise link necklace off a daily deal site after admiring the style when J.Crew had it at the retail store. I still can’t quite justify dropping $100+ on costume jewelry, but I always love the sparkle and colors in J. Crew’s pieces. I love that this piece has neutral colors and also a good amount of sparkle without being too blingy.
My bracelet is this month’s freebie from Modern and Chic Boutique; if you follow me on Instagram, I’ve shared how you can get this bracelet at no cost (minus the flat rate shipping). It’s a great piece for you or you can grab it as a stocking stuffer or Secret Santa gift. Modern and Chic also released some new blanket scarf colors earlier this week and I’m head over heels in love!
Hope you enjoy this last weekend before the holiday madness starts up!
