good morning, from beautiful Tybee! the weather has been picture perfect and looks to stay that way for the remainder of my stay. a friend of mine tagged along for a few days. lisa leaves tomorrow, but my brother and sister-in-law arrive today, with one of my kiddos and daughter-in-law arriving Wednesday afternoon. the best thing about a beach house is people love to come to visit! who doesn’t want to spend time at the beach? of course, i love, love, love to fling the door open wide as i get to play hostess with the mostess. but if you stopped by today for outfit inspiration, it’s time to transition to fall with blue jeans and blazers. now that’s my kind of outfit!
the temps they are a-changing and our wardrobes with them. sunset last night was 7:31pm. yikes! yes, we know all too well that the days are shorter and the nights longer. it’s time to think about cozy, casual, and comfy outfits. sweaters, boots, and blue jeans come to mind, but loungewear or activewear has come on strong the past eighteen months. while i may not be ready to slip into my beloved cashmere sweaters, i can throw on a lightweight sweater and grab a blazer. yep, it’s my favorite time of year. it’s time to transition to fall with blue jeans and blazers.
y’all know I’ve been singing the praises of Banana Republic for the past year. this brand has gone back to its roots and is killing it! last month i trotted this black blazer out (read that post here), and now it’s sold out. clothes sell like hotcakes at BR, so if you like something, grab it! their Friends & Family sale starts Thursday with 40% off. make a list, then hit the sale the first day. today, i’m wearing the BR black blazer (similar here, here, and here) with boyfriend jeans from Frame (similar here and here). a black crewneck sweater from Banana Republic keeps the outfit classic. At the same time, the white sneakers from Karl Lagerfeld (similar here, here, and here) i picked up at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale add pizazz to this ootd that’s a variation of my style uniform. since mini-handbags are on trend this year, a Coach minibag is just the ticket to add a modern touch.
