I want to share what I wore when I went to see Salman Rushdie last week. I love crop tops – not everyone does but I love the versatility they offer. Especially, how I can layer them in different ways for fall! This plaid top is perfect for the cooler temperatures and my new favorite jeans are a match made in heaven. The plaid print and the tuxedo seam are also spot on for the borrowed from the boys trend which is quite popular this fall but with a definite feminine twist.
Hope everyone is having a great week! I am just getting off of the high of seeing Salman Rushdie at the Inprint reading on Monday night. He was absolutely incredible – his knowledge of literature to politics to history is absolutely incredible (so pretty much everything). And his sense of humor is divine – have I ever mentioned how much I love a funny guy? I can not wait to start reading the book – Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights (i.e. 1001 Arabian Nights).
The borrowed from the boys category is a full on trend this season (see my tux and button down styled here) and what says prep school more than a navy blue blazer? This particular blazer received my attention because of the sleek white satin lapel which gave it a cool twist. While the gold buttons on the sleeves kept it classic. It is a great way to incorporate the boys trend and still keep it modern and not “literally” borrowed from the boys. I also wanted a dash of fun and girly so the button down in the cobalt leopard was just what I needed to complete the look. I can’t wait to wear my leopard again! The fringe shoes are still going strong so if you haven’t purchase a pair yet – check out my fun high and low finds below.
