Have you ever worn an outfit you liked so much that you wish you could wear it again the next day? Now I know how a man feels when he puts the same exact outfit on for the 34th day in a row. This particular BCBG dress offers a versatility that easily translates from the office to a night out at the hottest new sushi restaurant to a fashion week-themed cocktail party…And that is exactly how I wore it! Here, I’ve accented with silver accessories and a cool-blue hued belt, but you can easily bring out the warmth with layered gold necklaces like these and nude heels for longer-looking legs. Cheers to getting a little extra mileage out of your favorite Summer dresses!

While it doesn’t quite feel like a true October yet here (hello 7 straight 90 degree days), my brain has already made the mental shift towards Fall. Call me basic, but I truly believe October is one of the most cherished months of the year. We trade in our swim suits, and subsequent Summer diets, for cozy, enveloping layers, flopping fedoras, and tall boots meant for traipsing through pumpkin patches with pumpkin spiced lattes firmly fixated to hands. It’s a time for wrapping up in one of Fall’s chicly fringed coats to tailgate and cheer on your favorite football team to victory. And for those with an aversion to color, it’s one of the only times of the year you can get away with wearing head-to-toe black in favor of the Halloween month, or just to match a Monday mood. 

So in honor of this serendipitous month, here are my top picks for an expertly-styled October. Please enjoy the crisp Fall air and cozying up in these beautiful pieces. Here in California, we will be shielding ourselves from the heat wave indoors with apple pie-scented candles, air conditioner blasting, and that DirecTV fake fireplace scene “crackling” in the background. 

Parisian Jumpsuit

Rarely one to follow trends, I must admit that I have fallen madly in love with pale pinks and neutrals this season. In fact, I find myself often opting for head-to-toe neutral looks that err on the side of enhancing beautifully crafted cut and texture versus making a bold color-blocking statement. This invokes the effortless parisian chic look that has been at the forefront of fashion.

With the conclusion of Paris Fashion Week, I am inspired by this upcoming season’s modern twist on this carefree parisian style. The merger of this French aesthetic and the jumpsuit, something I never expected to wear so frequently, is refreshing. 

Today I’m revisiting our recent trip to Tahoe and this more low key version of the object of my current sartorial affection. This jumpsuit made for the perfect outfit to cruise around the lake and enjoy time with my family. And the fact that it has pockets really is the cherry on top of the icing. Pair this look up with a wide grey grommet or metallic belt and sleek, strappy heels for a day-to-night transition!
