okay, where did the weekend disappear to? blink twice, and it’s gone with monday knocking on our door. the good news is that our temps are finally heading down. there was a glimpse of 49 degrees as a low. mr. style and i are zipping up to new york later this week, and their temps are forecast in the low sixties. fingers crossed fall foliage will be on display. but nyc + october is guaranteed to be a delightful trip.

so i’m pulling out a few clothes that might make it into my suitcase. houndstooth pants from Banana Republic are certain to become a fall favorite. they look adorable paired with an embroidered sweater last seen here. every time i wear this ruffled cardigan from St. John i always receive lots of questions. first, it’s about ten years old (classics stand the test of time), second, the knit maintains its shape and offers seasonless wearability. which is why some brands and specific pieces are worth the investment. years ago, my father taught me how to pro-rate. if i do the math, this sweater is a downright bargain.

a cute geometric handbag from Tory Burch adds a punch of color to the black and white color scheme. it can be hand-held like a clutch or carried as a cross-body bag with its long strap.
