Matcha shot at Chalait NYC

After some much needed time off, my little clan headed down South to spend Thanksgiving with my family. It was Pepper’s second time on a plane and he did so well (even met the captain). It was also the first holiday without Nanna which was hard but also nice to visit some of the places we use to go when I visited. As I was heading towards Cameron Village (our lunch spot was always the Village Deli), I noticed the gates were open to Tatton Hall-a stunning estate flanked with the last of the Fall leaves. Everything about the grounds were Southern and provided the perfect backdrop for some photos.
Always one to hang on to warm weather as long as I can, I am slowly easing into Fall (at least my accessories are). I’ve always invested in good accessories. Bags, shoes, sunnies-all are key pieces that if purchased with some thought, can carry you through every season. I always gravitate towards a version of a neutral as these colors are the way I go with many of my investment pieces.
The warmth of my bag and suede texture my shoes added just the right nod to Fall.
Ready, set, shop!!! I love this time of year when the opportunity presents itself to pick up an investment piece at a fraction of the cost. These are my top picks currently on sale, if you’re in the mood to add a coveted piece to your closet.

I know, I know – white after Labor Day is seen as a no-no (I don’t entirely agree with that rule), but technically this is off white and realistically it was 200 degrees in NYC up until a few days ago. I decided to make the best of the sticky weekend and slip on this sweet little lace number while I still had the chance. With the Season’s finally clicking into gear, the next pairing with this piece will have to be a cozy knit.
Maxi’s have always been a Summer staple for me. They are so easy and versatile-going from laid back paired with gladiator flats to chic and elegant by adding strappy heels and metallic accessories. I have so many bold prints when it comes to my maxi collection that I jumped at this cobalt blue one. The color is fantastic and it’s the perfect canvas to accessorize.
