Usually August is the actual worst month of a New York City summer. It’s hot and humid, and the subways…don’t even get me started. But last week we had a bit of a “cool” spell that really had me looking forward to fall weather and all the sartorial pleasures that come with it - like layering, and boots, and jackets, and SHOPPING! I recently picked up some new fall staples and took advantage of the cool weather to break them out a season early. For this look I paired a really awesome lightweight fishtail parka with a pair of dark denim - two things I plan on wearing well into the cooler months - and ditched my usual canvas sneakers in favor of something a little more elegant to add a touch of #classandelegance. What are you most excited to wear this fall?
