It’s fall! It’s fall! Okay, not quite yet, but fall clothing is finally in stores and I couldn’t be happier. There are only so many straight days of cut-offs a girl can stand! I’m always a big fan of classic items with unique details, so when Ann Taylor asked me to pick some items from the new fall collection to play with, I honed right in on two classics with a twist. One, a crisp white dress shirt with tuxedo-esque pintucks, and two, a fitted stripe tee with faux-leather patches at the elbows. I liked the idea of them paired together…with the dressiness of the office-ready pintucked shirt elevating the weekend-staple stripe tee into something that could go to work (albeit on more casual days – or if you’ve only ever worked at casual workplaces like myself – everyday). Staggering the pushed up sleeves on both lets the tee’s faux-leather details peek out ever so slightly, which is my favorite part. And of course, all these items come in petite. =)
Also…how cool is this patent leather tortoise clutch? The attached chain is long enough to wear crossbody, in yet another way to take something from dressy to casual. How cute would it look crossbody with an oversized stripe shirt and slouchy denim on the weekend?
Thank you to Ann Taylor for sponsoring this post (and letting me play with new fall arrivals)!
