I have mentioned before that I will surely be wearing this Hill House Krista Skirt non-stop this year. I love the subtle pattern and flattering midi length. Take your true size based on the size chart, the skirt has no elastic but instead a side zipper. Plus, the skirt has pockets!

I am slowly trying to lean into the flare jean trend...it is not overly natural for me but I will say its been growing on me! This is a pair of flare jeans from Good American (one of my favorite brands for denim) - I always suggest sizing down in Good American because their styles tend to have a good bit of stretch. My other favorite flare jeans are from Veronica Beard, so I will link those as well.

I recently moved into this apartment but luckily many of my home decor works in the new space. This pink living room is very similar to my old West Village apartment with the same Balboa Rattan Bookshelf from Serena & Lily, white dining table, banquette and more!

There is finally a slight chill in the air and the temperature has dropped under 70 degrees! Fall, here we come! This outfit is a great example of what I wear most days working from home or running errands - a Lululemon long sleeve shirt, a Tory Sport vest and eyeglasses (instead of contacts.)

My go-to black legging is the AB Soft Legging from Addison Bay. This 7/8 length legging hits me right above my ankle and is made of the softest material making them comfortable for all day wear. I wear these for everything from intense workouts to a day of running errands.

As you all know, I am such a fan of shoes from Margaux. The female founded brand offers beautiful designed classic women’s shoes in extended sizing (US 3 - 14) with three width options. As someone who has a size 12 shoe, it can be so hard to find chic and high quality shoes in my size so I often turn to Margaux. I must own at least eight pairs of their shoes, if not more! For this fall season, I thought it would be fun to add a pop of red to my closet with this scarlet red Demi ballet flat. (Gifted)

I have been a long time follower of Liz Damrich, so I was thrilled when I saw that she was launching a capsule collection of clothing and accessories for Dillards. As soon as the collection launched I ordered this chic green midi length skirt and black kitten heels. I am thrilled with both items (and each is under $150!)

It is still so hot in New York so it is hard to be creative when it comes to getting dressed. This Molly Moorkamp Black Dress is the perfect piece when I quickly want to feel pulled together and the linen fabric makes it great for the summer heat.

It is certainly starting to feel like autumn during these late summer days in Maine. We cut a few hydrangeas from the garden and this blue ceramic crock from Etú Home made the perfect vase - it could also be great for holding spatulas and spoons on a kitchen counter top.

I can't wait to wear this ivory Cooper Cardigan from Jenni Kayne all throughout the fall season. The sweater is nice and thick, in a way that feels really luxurious and well made. (I am wearing size XL in the cardigan.)

I think my go-to color this fall is going to be olive green; I just seem to gravitate to every product I see in these deep green hue and this cashmere sweater set from Veronica Beard is no exception. Another great olive green product - these under $60 Monolo-inspired heels from Amazon of all places! *The jeans and sweater set were kindly gifted.

I am a longtime fan of the simple and well designed makeup products from Merit, so I was thrilled to see that they launched new eyeshadows. The formula is so unique, the Solo Shadows apply as a cream consistency (making them easy to blend!) but then dry down to be a powder, so they dont budge once you apply it to your eyelid. *products kindly gifted
