Keeping Cozy.


I know that white is technically not okay after Labor Day, but does anyone listen to that rule anymore? I bought this cozy sweatshirt at J.Crew a few weeks ago and have been layering over all of my summer dresses to make them more Fall appropriate. I love the long zippers up the sides. My photographer + friend Lydia liked this look a lot, saying it was a little bit grunge but I don’t know about that… am I rocking grunge?! Please say yes… I’ll feel so much cooler!

Shop the Post: J.Crew Sweatshirt // SEA Dress (from earlier this summer, more white lace dresses here) // Cleobella Bag (c/o) // Sweet & Spark Necklace (c/o) // Old Navy Boots (from last year; this year’s version is cute too!)


How fun is this little cross body! It’s great for going out or I’ll stash it in my work tote and leave the bigger bag in the office.

    Not too grungy, feminine chic grunge if anything! The sweater is baggy & bulky which is a clear winner for fall. I love the little lace detailing of the dress as well. :] // ☼ ☯

    No matter the style genre, I think this outfit is very cool! I love the scalloped edge on the skirt, and love the combo of knit sweater with lace.

    Perfect way to incorporate summer pieces into fall and get more use out of them.
