Does anyone else feel like they blinked and all of the sudden it’s mid September? I’m not entirely sure how it happened but whether we like it or not, mid September is here. Now, before we get all sad about summer’s end, let’s remember: this is one of the most amazing times of the year. For me, each crisp morning and comfortably warm and sunny afternoon feels like a gift. So keep those chins up, people.

Now let’s talk about this sweater. I love how the block letter screams cool collegiate co-ed and simultaneously looks like it could be something from another generation. The initial sweater, I must admit, was an impulsive purchase from earlier this summer (one which I do not regret even a little). Because I’m a sucker for personalization especially when it is in this bold-and-overstated-but-far-from-obnoxious manner.

This tutu-esque skirt is one of those pieces that I don’t wear all that often but when I do dig it out of my closet and wear it, I find myself wondering ‘why don’t I wear this like all the time’. I usually end up answering this oh-so-rhetorical question by descending back to Earth and remembering: there really aren’t all that many occasions for an ivory ribbon fringe skirt. But hey, where there’s a will, there’s a way. So with this look, the skirt in question is the perfect piece to bring along for the ride as we ease back into sweater weather. Who’s with me!?
