I’m beginning to get that F A L L feeling! I know, I know…it may only be the end of July (plus a serious heatwave in LA lol) but between Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale happening (primarily on fall clothes + accessories) and receiving this lovely dress in the mail from SheIn, I am starting to get into a fall state of mind :p
One of my favorite colors for fall is an oxblood / maroon. This dress is flowy + comfy (perfect for weekend adventures or the office) and the floral detailing gives it a little extra ‘something’! Since this dress reminds me of fall, I figured I may as well style it as such hehe
I paired it with my favoritebooties I have worn all year long from Go Jane (similar style available from them now ON SALE)! I feel a nude pair of booties is just classic and will never go out of style. They can be worn with jeans, a dress, shorts etc (ICYMI I styled them with shorts + a plaid shirt here).
My sunnies are from J Crew Factory and are a great classic black pair to have for commuting or even just running around town, I like that they are a little more sophisticated than the mirrored aviators I typically wear and are a great shape for my face (plus being from the outlet store…they are affordable)!
It’s F R I – Y A Y and that means an end to a short work week! Double Y A Y! Another thing I often find myself saying ‘Y A Y’ about everyday? The fact that living in LA means I get to be surrounded by gorgeous Palm Trees everyday. Call it dorky, but I guess being an East Coast native, seeing palm trees all the time excites me considering they are non-existent in NY. Hey NYC may be having NYFW but it is missing sunshine, great weather and these colorful beauties!The day before I left NY to road trip to LA, I did a little last minute shopping at Kohls (because while my dad was yelling for me to get all of my belongings together my mom found some coupons that I simply ‘had‘ to use :p I guess I didn’t think I would ever shop at Kohls again — little did I know there is one literally 10 minutes from my office haha #Addict)
Anyway, this Palm Print top was that last minute impulse buy I had to buy because I felt like it signified Cali and my exciting move from the East Coast. I feel like a lot of my clothes have a sentimental value, but this top, I will always remember being purchased the day before I moved 🙂
Happy Monday and as you can see MissyOnMadison.com got a little face lift over the weekend and is new + improved! I hope you all love it as much as I do <3 It took me forever to really pin point what I was looking for and then actually go ahead and do it (lot’s of YouTube ‘how to‘ videos + questions to my web design friends haha). But it’s here and I am totally thrilled about it! Something else I am a tad bit thrilled about…slowly showing off my favorite looks for fall! This Tie Dye dress is the perfect summer to fall transitional piece and I am so glad my gal pals over at Ooh La La boutiques (from my hometown in Long Island) sent me this cute number to kick off my fall style posts!
Happy Monday Ya’ll! Sorry if I haven’t been writing as much the past two weeks but between my trip to LA a week ago and a newrevelation that just came about, I have been overwhelmed, swamped and just needed a moment to breathe (you know you have totally had those kind of weeks :p).
Now that I got that out of the way, I wanted to pre-warn ya that today’s outfit post is far from typical. I won’t just be talking about what I am wearing because honestly the news I have to share is WAY more exciting…
And I am off…to LA that is! I can’t wait to be back amongst the palm trees and in my happy place! I am staying with Kristi (a little throwback to my last year’s LA excursion) and my brother is joining me this time around to visit some of his dream schools and get the full LA experience!
When it came to packing…well there were some hiccups. First off…my luggage broke…yea I only used it for two trips and the wheel is already busted so I had to make an impromptu trip to Kohls to get a new suitcase (big enough to fit all of the neon in my closet of course hehe) Did I mention how much loveKohls yet…because I seriously do <3 They have EVERYTHING!
Anyways…after solving the luggage problem, I packed a few pairs of shorts, plenty of shoes, a few bikinis and of course sunnies!
