weekend wear

it seems that cooler temperatures have officially arrived. it's always sad to see summer go, but i'm definitely excited to break out all of my fall sweaters and jackets!

remember my brass dress that i had mentioned in this post? here it is! i love it so much, and i'm already looking forward to wearing it next season. i've paired it with some black flats, and my new favorite mansur gavriel tote. the tote was absolutely an impulse purchase, but i'm so glad i bought it. the leather is so soft and buttery and i can't wait to use it throughout the fall and winter season! i'll link some similar black leather totes below.

separately, could anyone recommend some books they've been loving lately? i just finished up mindy kaling's new book and loved it (i also highly recommend her first book!). i read it every night before bed this past week, and would like to keep that routine going!

fall picks from mango

i like to add a few new pieces to my wardrobe each season, but there's something about fall that just makes me go bananas and want to buy everything. as of right now, i've done a pretty good job of limiting my impulse purchases ;)

however, it's going to be hard for me to resist pulling the trigger on a few items from mango. i love the cut of this simple black cotton jacket (with zippers at the cuffs? yes). i'm pretty sure i need this lace-applique linen tee in both black and white. it would look so pretty layered under cardigans or leather jackets!

this past summer i had the pleasure of doing some freelance work for m.gemi, a luxury women's italian shoe startup. the company works closely with family-owned factories in italy on the design and construction of the shoes, and ships them directly to consumers (skipping the middleman and department store markup prices).

although the shoes are by no means inexpensive, they are a luxury worth treating yourself to if you get the chance. the leather is so soft and the level of craftsmanship is evident with each pair. two of my favorites–the stellato and the strato–are featured above!

the best part about m.gemi is that they release new styles every monday. be sure to check in every week to see which styles they release next!

brass clothing

brass clothing is a new, boston-area startup that features beautifully-designed simple dresses. a few months ago, a friend at work walked in wearing the a-line dress and i immediately asked her where it was from. i ordered it and i absolutely love it–i've also been wearing it once a week since it arrived!

the structure of the dress is really nice, and i really like the slightly heavier weight of the fabric. i'm seriously considering buying a backup (i love white, and it's only a matter of time before i stain or ruin it). i'm looking forward to seeing what brass has in store for the fall and winter season!
