Early Bird

Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.
-F. Scott Fitzgerald

I'm getting a head start on fall this year because hey, it's my favorite season so I must savor it while it lasts. Also, Starbucks totally launched its Pumpkin Spice Latte early this year, which means I have to launch my blanket-scarf-wearing early too {it only makes sense}. I literally wore this outfit the first day it got "cold" aka it was pretty chilly in the morning but by noon it was probably like 70 degrees, and by the time I left work this scarf definitely wasn't necessary but {who cares}. It's fall -- really, it's actually fall now -- and I would toss colorful leaves around if they currently existed. 

One of my favorite trends for this fall/winter are the side slit sweaters with the slight high-low hem {also loving the style in button downs like this}. I snagged this one on sale from Madewell literally the second it went on markdown {run girls, don't walk}. They're just easy, effortless sweaters with a little surprise that leave just a bit more to be desired. And if you want, you could have a little more fun by layering something patterned underneath or, something that I want to do, layering something frilly or a peplum to create a new silhouette and add a touch of feminine flair. The latter would work wonderfully with a sweater with side zips like this


P.S. Zara is back this year with an updated version of this scarf, and you can bet I am stalking the website until it becomes available again because obviously owning both is necessary {total sarcasm}. Join in the fun and check it out here
