I was walking back from taking pictures at a different location (coming soon!) when I saw these steps. If you’re not a fashion blogger, here’s a secret- anything run down + sneakers = the dream. I typically find that locations that either look a little bit old (like these steps, or this barn), or super modern (like my all time favorite, the parking garage), make for the best shots. So these steps were a dream come true. Another dream come true? This shirt. It’s my current favorite orange, it’s SO soft, and it cost me $1.50. It’s worn just enough, and looks perfect with any and all denim.

Sunset

These pants were one of those amazing, once in a lifetime thrift discoveries. I had been on the lookout for a nice pair of mom/boyfriend/not super skinny jeans, with no luck. But then, as I was waiting in line in a thrift store just outside of Rutland, I saw a crumpled up something on the ground. As I work in retail, I just couldn’t leave something on the ground. So I grabbed what was on the floor, and lo and behold, it was the perfect pair of black jeans. Not too tight, ridiculously high waisted, and with some gorgeous detailing. It was fate.

Warm Colors

For some reason, almost everything that I’ve bought in the last 6 months has been warm toned. Oranges, reds, and yellows are taking over my life! I like to think it’s because they’re sun colors, which according to Luna Lovegood are lucky. It just makes me happy to see ochres and crimsons. If you had asked me this time last year if I would ever dare to wear orange, the answer would have been a resounding no. Something about the red hair x warm tones look put me off, but lately I’ve been embracing it. Anyone else loving warm colors?

Minimalist Day to Night

Day to Night // no longer grey

 

Fashion wise, there are few things harder than “Transitional” outfits. Mid fall, early spring, and, of course, day to night looks are all hard to make work. But I decided to take the plunge! This day to night look was centered around a minimalist gold bar necklace from AUrate. It’s a beautiful piece- elegant, simple, and ethical (more on that later!). I chose a slip dress to keep the elegant, unfussy feel going, and because it’s a perfect piece for any time of the day. The day look includes sneakers for mobility, sunglasses, and a white shirt to layer for a very Clueless feel. The night outfit includes a change in shoes, a beautiful jacket with a timeless bomber cut, and a bag to tuck any nighttime essentials into. It’s a classic look, with modern twists.

As I said earlier, this necklace is not only beautiful and a perfect transitional piece, but it’s also made in a way that I can get behind. AUrate is a NYC based company that emphasizes minimalism and makes pieces that you can wear every day. This necklace is adjustable, and customizable! In addition, AUrate donates a book to children from underrepresented backgrounds for every piece bought- one look for one book. In a world in which knowledge is power, fighting for literacy and access for children to books is so important. AUrate’s jewelry supports internal and external beauty!

What do you think about this transitional look? Would you rock it? Let me know!
