Anchored Style

Aug 21, 2013

Shirt: J.Crew  Skirt: Corilynn c/o Shoes: Lilly Pulitzer Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick

though summer doesn’t officially end for another month, it feels like
the season is finally winding down. I’m getting my fill of summer
brights and nautical attire before I make the switch to cozy sweaters
and corduroys. The skirt I’m wearing in this post is perfect for my
current state of mind. I obviously love the anchor pattern, but aside
from that the fit is perfect and it’s manufactured in the USA. Corilynn  is giving away one skirt from their current styles to one of my readers.

Stairing Down

Me:  Dress: Banana Republic BRxIssa c/o Shoes: Oscar De La Renta Necklace: J.Crew (similar)
Sadie: Dress: Banana Republic BRxIssa c/o Shoes: J.Crew  Necklace: Loren Hope

I’m loving the recent Banana Republic collaborations, especially the latest with Issa London. The dresses that Sadie and I are wearing make such a classic addition to any wardrobe. I paired my dress with fuchsia suede bow pumps and a statement necklace, but the simplicity of the dress allows you to wear it in so many different ways.

The end of summer is almost here, and the last part of the Kiel James Patrick factory is nearly complete. I’m looking forward to starting the next chapter by welcoming the fall season in my new office. With the weather cooling down a bit, I can’t resist throwing on my favorite fall sweaters.The one I’m wearing in this post is a recent purchase from J.Crew and it’s perfectly cozy.
