FALL MUST HAVE: THE D'ORSAY SHOE



Recently, I tried on these suede d'Orsay flat shoes at J.Crew and it was instant attraction! This shoe comes in three colors (deep violet, highland gray, black) and ALL of them are amazing (check out my Instagram photo). So naturally, I'll probably buy one of each. Just in case you weren't aware of what a d'Orsay style shoe or pump is, here's the definition... a women's shoe in which the vamp of the shoe has been cut away very close to the toe box and the sides are cut away, revealing the arch of the foot. This style shoe is very flattering and actually makes the shoe even more comfortable, if you ask me. The d'Orsay style shoe is the perfect summer-to-fall transition, when you want to cover your toes, not your entire foot. In the winter you can wear them with ankle socks. The list here represents my top d'Orsay style picks for the fall. I'd love to know if you are loving the d'Orsay style shoe as much as I am. Enjoy!

SUNSHINE + LEOPARD


Welcome September! I'm always on the lookout for stylish comfortable pieces to wear on the weekends and I loved this ivory sunset tank and denim shorts. I paired them with my new leopard flats, Mar y Sol clutch and Julie Vos bangles. One fact about me is, I love denim shorts! I have about five pair and the older they get the better. Oh and let's talk about those leopard flats. WOW! Love them and I'm so glad I bought them, because they are totally the perfect summer-to-fall accessory.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT MAINE + SEA BAGS


Good morning! It feels so great to know that I can sleep in another day tomorrow! I love three day weekends! My summer trip to Maine was such a great vacation, I wanted to share one last post with you. First of all, Maine was so laid back and all I had on my daily agenda was a morning cup of coffee and strolling around the small harbor town of Camden. We did take a two hour trip north to Bar Harbor to hike in Acadia and we made sure to visit Jordan Pond for some delicious popovers. Family barbecues and a little wine at night were a few of the highlights. I wanted to mention that Elaine Turner sent me a pair of her oh-so-comfortable jelly sandals and I literally wore them the whole trip. They're like walking on air! I got to choose the color and I went with this bright tomato color and everywhere I went women asked me where I got them. I really could have left all of my other shoes at home. I wore them everyday, all day except of course, when I went hiking. Let's continue...I loved seeing the sailboats leave the harbor each morning and the fog settling in at night. Everywhere I looked was breathtaking and I could imagine owning a waterfront home there. Before we drove out of Maine I asked my husband to take me to Sea Bags, a beach bag company that I've been in love with FOREVER! It was like a dream come true walking up to the entrance of this quaint little store front shop in Portland. Sea Bags has grown tremendously since I started following them years ago and I was blessed to get a personal tour of the shop by the new CEO, Don. He was beyond gracious and gave me some behind the scenes updates on what his vision is for Sea Bags future. While I was there I got to see Sea Bags getting ready for the holidays. Christmas stocking patterns were being cut and Sea Bags was in full swing for fall and winter preparations. How fun is that! A Sea Bags Christmas stocking! Each bag, accessory and tote is made of recycled sails and sown by hand. Visiting Sea Bags was truly a highlight of my Maine trip. I'd love to know if you have ever been to Maine?

WEEKEND PICKS


Good morning! As I mentioned yesterday, Labor Day weekend has so many terrific sales going on. I just ordered this embroidered romper for $52 and you can pretty much call it the Desiree romper, because it's totally my style. The lace dress by Joie is finally on sale! Yippee! I'm definitely buying that beauty and I think it would look so pretty with this fiesta necklace that's on sale at J.Crew. Click here to see the growing list of Labor Day sales from my favorite brands. I will be updating the list as the sales go live. Hope you have a lovely weekend!

LOOKS I LOVE...


Good morning! Okay, so I'm staring to get excited about fall and leopard styles are on my radar. I own the Seychelles flat sandals and Halogen pumps and they couldn't be more perfect for fall. I'm hoping to feature a few outfit posts wearing them very soon. Oh and that Tory Burch bag (save 25% off of it now during the Tory Burch Labor Day Event) is amazing! I featured it here on Instagram. It's the perfect size and I love the color for the fall season. Enjoy!
