How is it almost October, already?! Fall is here and I can’t believe it. My bikinis are all packed away and it is time to break out all of my comfy sweaters. However, it can be a real challenge deciding what to wear this time of the year, since the weather is all over the place. I have found that chunky cotton sweaters are the best solution. It is still too warm for wool or cashmere, but a good cotton sweater is the perfect weight for this awkward Fall weather.
I have more sweaters than anything else in my closet – primarily because they are so versatile! A great sweater is the perfect addition to any outfit. Of course, the classic combo of a cozy sweater and a great pair of jeans is my go to outfit. However, you can also throw a sweater over a slip dress or pair it with a cute mini skirt on those warmer Fall days. Chic and comfy, yes please.
The best part about fashion is how much fun you can have with clothes that used to be super boring. I am all about the different trendy sleeves and cuts on sweaters these days – it is a total upgrade from my boring prep school cardigans! I have linked a few of my favorite cotton sweaters, as well as my outfit pictured above!

I have always been a fan of feeling comfortable while looking chic and lately I’ve had this new found obsession with graphic tees. They are perfect for transitioning an outfit from day to night while still allowing you to feel nice and cozy. Below are a few of my favorite new tees and how I have been wearing them out and about!
The lighting in my photos doesn’t do this t-shirt justice, but it actually says “JEANS JEANS JEANS”. I mean how can you not wear this shirt with denim? It’s such a fun play on the classic t-shirt & jeans. My shorts are One Teaspoon and the sandals are from Madewell.
I am super obsessed with this tank top for two reasons. One – because I think that vintage band tees are so cool. Two – because the back of this top is open!
Now I know that everyone can’t get away with going bra-less, but I have recently discovered these Commando “covers” and they are life changing. I highly recommend them! Back to the outfit, my jeans are Blank NYC and the sandals are Madewell (same as above, but in black).
I have always loved the look of camo – perhaps, because I was raised on the Eastern Shore! This t-shirt is soooo soft and cozy, but really cool looking. It also comes in a few different color options. These jeans are also amazingly comfy and have a ton of stretch in them. I could have taken a nap in this outfit! My jeans are Frame and my sandals are Schutz.
Sadly, I don’t know much about the Rolling Stones nor the Grateful Dead, but I love these tees! I actually wore this outfit out to dinner last week for date night and got tons of compliments on my shirt. The back of this tee has all of the cities from the Stones tour, so it actually looks like a real vintage concert tee! It does run small though, so I recommend ordering up a size. My pants are Blank NYC, my shoes are Sam Edelman, and my sweater is Autumn Cashmere.
Thanks for reading!
Let’s be real – one of my favorite things in life is spending the day snuggling in bed with Chloè (my dog) and Rob. As much as I love getting dressed up, there are few things that make me as happy as a good snuggle sesh. Don’t get me wrong though, I still believe in looking fabulous even if you don’t plan on leaving the house.
Since I was young, I have always slept in an oversized t-shirt but, over the years, I have upgraded into an actual nightshirt. It’s less embarrassing to answer the door or walk to the mailbox in than an oversized t-shirt that doesn’t cover your toosh.
If you are the type of person, like my mother, that practically wears a North Face parka to bed in order to stay warm, then you should definitely invest in some Michael Lauren sweatpants. They are, hands down, the softest pants ever. You will never want to take them off. My other favorite sweatpants are Monrow and Splendid (pictured above).

Of course, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t have a pair of pajamas on my “wish list”. Olivia von Halle makes the most luxurious and stylish PJ’s. They offer nightshirts, robes, and sets. What makes them soooo amazing is the quality. They offer 100% silk pajamas with hand embroidering and mother-of-pearl buttons. Seriously! Not to mention these are the pajamas that Coco Chanel wore, so it’s only fitting that I too have a pair!
Poor Rob, this list of mine never seems to get any smaller!
