White after Labor Day...YES!!

Wearing white only between Memorial Day to Labor Day seems so absurd to me. I can understand not wearing white during the dirty days of winter, but why not white for the majority of the year? I'm not really sure where this ridiculous rule of fashion came from, but  in my opinion it is a rule that is made to be broken.
While summer starts to wind down, this is a great time to take advantage of summer sales and replace that pair of white jeans that we have worn all summer long for a fresh pair for the fall. 
I would pair skinny jeans like these from J Brand with a great chunky knit like this one from Zara and a great bootie like these from Rag & Bone and a bucket bag like this one from Mansur Gavriel

Switch it up for Night with a great top like this one from Zara and a great pair of heel like these from Manolo Blanik and an amazing clutch like this one from Proenza Schouler

Distracted: Denim Junkie

Distracted for me right now has been an understatement. While trying to enjoy the summer in this amazing place that I am lucky enough to call home (The Hamptons) I have also been busy trying to throw together a party (within 4 weeks) for my son to celebrate his Bar Mitzvah. With all of that being said, of course I have been keeping up on all of the fall styles, and with every new season is a fresh crop of jeans.
Now, I think the majority of us all look in our closets and say, I DO NOT NEED ANOTHER PAIR OF JEANS, but there we are adding yet another pair of jeans to our shopping cart.
 I am a true DENIM JUNKIE, but never a DENIM SNOB, so here is my  Splurge vs. Steal Pre-Fall Edition... (kills me to think of Fall!!)

I absolutely Love a great pair of distressed Boyfriend Jeans, I love them with a cool pair of Stan Smiths or a pair of Manolos

 Rag & Bone $ 242                                                               Zara $79.90

I love a good Flare, they elongate the leg and are super sexy...

J Brand Valentina $224                           Gap Long & Lean $69.95  $49.00

A Skinny Jean is always a Must Have

(my favorite skinny)                  (another favorite jean they are super comfy and can't beat the price)

If a Boyfriend Jean is too baggy for you a great alternative is the Skinny Boyfriend

Rag & Bone Dre $198                        Banana Republic Boyfriend $89.50
( Own & Love!)                                                  
The Patched Jean (so huge for the Fall)

Current Elliot The Fling $238                     Gap $84.95
Coated for that Leather Look

Wooden Wristwatch
