I’ve been feeling under the weather for going on 3 weeks now … the absolute worst! It’s that time of year and so easy to pick something up, so I’ve found myself looking for easy ways to feel more put together while still wearing my tried and true favorites.  Sometimes it’s that extra little touch that makes you go from feeling boring and blah to pulled together. For me, it’s a swipe of lipstick or a pair of heels!

This summer I invested in a white blouse that I could wear time and time again. It’s a wardrobe staple that I’ve found myself grabbing out of closet for layering over, under and just by itself for a simple pulled together look. I also wanted to find a pair of leopard pumps that I could throw on instead of a usual black or nude heel.

This weekend was a very relaxing one! I spent most of it resting, but did get out to brunch a bit at The Dutch and Grey Dog – two places I’d definitely recommend to any other New Yorkers or visitors! Saturday was one of the prettiest days we’ve had since I moved here and was followed by a brisk and chilly Sunday. More updates on what I’ve been up to lately coming this week!

I don’t know about you, but on the weekends I actually find myself dressing much more casual than I do during the week. I often don’t get a chance to fully post about some of my weekday outfits but I try to dress up a little more than usual for work to help get me ready for the day! On Saturday and Sunday afternoons I’m usually looking for something easy and casual to throw on before I head out for the day.

I’ve been wearing this high neck grey turtleneck from French Connection regularly on days when the temperature drops below what I had expected, and I’ve been looking for any opportunity possible to break out my leopard flats and heels before I fully turn to my boots! I’ve also been on the hunt for some colored dresses and think this green ali gator number might need to be mine as soon as my shopping hiatus ends. Don’t you agree?

I’m getting excited about “The Holidays” approaching – I can’t believe Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are all right around the corner! I’m looking forward to some festive dressing (and totally loving this sequined pant/sweater/shirt combo!) and will be looking for ways to change it up this year. I’m SO excited for Christmas in New York City and seeing the city come alive with lights and festive decor. So much to look forward to.. but for now, I’ll just enjoy my hazelnut lattes and the snow-less streets. Happy almost weekend!

As a shorter gal, I’ve come to appreciate those pieces that you can put on and walk out of the store in without requiring a hem, tapering or any adjusting necessary. It’s very rare that I find a dress or pair of pants that allows me to do so and that hugs the curves I have in the right places. This polo dress from the Lacoste City Golf collection might’ve been one of the most welcome surprises in a long time! It’s the only polo dress I’ve ever tried on that actually tapers to your waist. Not to mention, I love the understated alligator!

Right now with dark mornings and early sunsets, I’ve been into “throw on and go” dresses in my closet and layering in new ways. I like the idea of playing with sweaters and flannels as a different way to layer and replace a high waisted belt for a more casual look. You could even layer a sweater over this dress with a skirt to completely change the piece as well or would be the perfect match for a camel wool coat or trench going into the colder Fall days.

Speaking of city golf, I’ve been wanting to go to Chelsea Piers for a little driving range day and drinks on the water before it starts getting too cold! Growing up in Texas, my Dad’s love for golf definitely rubbed off on me and I enjoy playing a little bit here and there (although I’m not very good).

I cannot believe it’s already mid-October… I’m looking forward to the next few weeks (but want it to slow down!) and would love to hear your favorite “Fall”-esque thing that you’ve done so far! Leave me a comment below, have a wonderful day!
