Outfit Post: Brace for Fall

After a ridiculously hot July, the cooler August temperatures have been a welcome relief. They’ve also got me pining for fall (as previously noted here).

The crisp air in this morning prompted me to throw on this new Ali Ro trench I found hunting through a local consignment store (Margaret’s on Frankfort Ave for locals). I meant to work on a couple big, fun posts this weekend by my mom was in town so they got put on the back burner while we hit the pool for one of the last official summer weekends and snuck in a little shopping excursion.

I’ve got some Louisville Uncorked style spotting and a hair tutorial in store this week and I’ll be posting the winner of the W&M Custom Jewelry Giveaway today so check back and see if you won!


Anaorak: Ali Ro (from Margaret’s but identical here); Jeans: William Rast; Tee: Banana Republic; Wedges: Qupid; Bag: Banana Republic; Bracelet: Stella & Dot; Scarf: Express (old, similar here)

p.s. – can you tell i need a hair cut. yikes!



 Shop the look…

    Great casual scarf. I like the gold buttons on the anorak, too!

    I love the simplicity of this outfit! And the pop of pink with those wedges is so fun. I wish I could find something fabulous like that jacket in a consignment shop.
