A Simple and Easy Fall Outfit Idea.

Jacket // Bodysuit // Belt // Heels // Jeans // Earrings // Sunglasses

Who are your favorite people to follow on Instagram?

I have a lot of favorites but one in particular is Amy from Fashion Jackson. Her style is so simple and understated (but always elegant). Her feed is full of outfit inspiration – all using basic pieces you probably already have in your closet. This is such a simple thing but a while ago she posted an all black outfit with a trench and I just loved how it looked. So here I am with my version. She styled hers with a Burberry trench (here) but I didn’t want to be too SWF-y so I paired mine with my BB Dakota trench.

I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was chock full of entertaining. I hosted a Friendsgiving celebration on Friday night and a fun girls’ brunch yesterday. So I’m a little bit beat (and still have more cleaning to do!!!) but it was a lot of fun. One of the best parts of my new(ish) apartment is how perfect it is for having people over. I’m a bit of a homebody but still love to socialize so I’m always the happiest when I get to have friends over. So nice. Also, I am now almost through The Proposal (we’re talking about it on the podcast a week from Weds) and it’s SO CUTE. I love Jasmine Guillory – she does a steamy but non-cheesy love story so well. If you’re looking for a cute read I can’t suggest it enough!

  1. I love the colour of the coat – and it looks so lightweight as well! So suitable for fall in Hong Kong! 🙂

    You look great! Simple, but elegant & timeless. Just picked up “The Proposal” during a Target run (just finished “All You Can Ever Know” by Nicole Chung, a memoir of her journey to discover her birth family). Can’t wait to read this new book! Based on your recommendation, I read “The Wedding Date” and totally loved it.

      I’m loving it so much so far!!! I think maybe even more than The Wedding Date!

    Love a good all black outfit with a pop of camel. So classic.

    And entertaining is one of my favorite things to do, I wish I had a bigger table like yours!
