Outfit: (early) Fall Uniform

Rebecca Minkoff Blazer // Joie Top (old but similar) // gifted Gorjana Necklace

Vince Shorts (sold out but similar) // DIY Bracelets // YSL Heels // gifted Rebecca Minkoff Bag (now on sale!)

As I’ve said before, by the time Labor Day rolled in last week, I had long been tired of my summer uniform of cut-offs, tees, and flip-flops or flats.  I’ve been actually wanting to dress up lately, which is weird as my style is usually pretty casual.  These Vince leather shorts have become an early Fall staple.  I got them for an amazing price at Shopbop and can’t stop wearing them.  Paired with my favorite heels and go-to Rebecca Minkoff “Becky Blazer” there you have it… my (early) Fall uniform.

 {Thank you Christin, for taking these photos!}

    Love this look on you, Grace – I’m always so envious of your long wavy hair!  And that jacket is pretty much the perfect fall blazer – NEED! 🙂


    • Grace Atwood says 9.11.12

      Thanks lady!  That cracks me up – I’d much rather have smooth, sleek hair like yours.  The blazer was such a good purchase – an investment but so necessary.

  11. Samantha Peterson says 9.10.12

    Love this look. I’ve been wearing my leather shorts non-stop. They make me feel a bit more pulled together as the temperatures are still high, but I’m itching to transition into my fall wardrobe! Love the outfit post – learning to add actions from your blogshop class?! I need to take that class!

    • Grace Atwood says 9.11.12

      That’s exactly how I feel – much more pulled together than regular old shorts.  And yes, learning all sorts of tricks!  LOVED BlogShop, you must take!

      Yeah, I hope you do!  I love mine!!

  13. Bettina says 9.10.12

    I’m so glad you posted this outfit post because I was actually going to creepily email you asking if you had any photos of yourself wearing the lower tribute heels. All the outfit posts I could seem to find when I image searched were of the highest heel, so I wanted to get a perspective on the lower ones. But now, I don’t have to send you that creepy email haha 🙂 

    • Grace Atwood says 9.11.12

      Aw, yay!  I love mine.  🙂
