The SEPTEMBER issues are surfacing and a new school year has begun for me. That combination means BACK TO SCHOOL SHOPPING. My first week of Graduate School starts today, but it’s way too hot in California to be rocking some of my favorite Fall looks.   Recent FALL editorials and those not-so-recent FALL 2013 collections, have me craving layers, leather, socks and tights, but it’s too soon for that.

Once the days get cooler my style cues will be as follows:


 Rather than layering crew-cut sweatshirts + cashmere sweaters over tees, I’m thinking of opting for collared shirts and possibly a skirt or two.


Re-add my favorite pair of wide-leg denim + tweed.


Opt for my trench coat instead of my FAVORITE denim jacket and rock my Air Max sneakers with dressier outfits. Also, add dress socks to the mix, while keeping white ankle socks for gym use only.



Make a tailored look über feminine with pastel. After seeing this photo, I will definitely be wearing dress socks, possibly a rhinestoned pair?


I will wear black dress pants and make them a bit more glam with leather, brocade, + turtlenecks.


I will consider introducing a colored or printed nubby-knit into my closet to be paired with dressy shorts, a skirt, even a dress.


I will pair blazers with dresses + layer tees under tanks or tanks under blouses.


 Lastly, I will be mindful of properly concealing my legs with tights, depending on the scenario (i.e. work, school presentation, + internship), and be sure to top the outfit off with a cute jacket or blazer.
