last night at dinner with friends this question arose: what do you pack to take on vacation to a destination that is approximately 65 degrees in temperature? (it was hotly debated) my vote is bring out the trusty blazer and for the sake of tying this illustration in, a hat and a statement bib necklace and voila, fall vacation chic.
every fall it seems like fashion takes a turn away from the bohemian feel of summer towards "lady chic" with classic details and silhouettes. out with the lacy white sundresses, in with boxy alligator purses, stacked heels and fur. and every year, without fail, i buy into it. i could do a case study on myself and my shopping habits - i shop like a flower child in spring and like a 1950's debutante in fall. i even suddenly want shoes with bows on them. these kate spades would do the trick! aren't they lady chic perfection?
