Ready For Fall

Shirt: J.Crew | Vest: Zara | Jeans: Hudson | Shoes: MIA Shoes | Belt: Target | Necklace: Zara | Bag: Alexander Wang

The oppressive heat and humidity has me screaming for fall. Fortunately we got a rare break in the 100+ degree heat thanks to a few consistent rain showers, and I desperately wanted to try out my new army vest from Zara. Army vest, where have you been all my life?

And, we all know how much I love vests.

Of course, it wouldn’t be me without a little sparkle.

I went back to Chuck at Michael Kemper salon to tweak the ombré hair he did for me two weeks earlier. We went a little darker on top to make the ombré more noticeable and I’m SO HAPPY with the results! I’ll admit, I did the ombré purely out of necessity, since I knew I wouldn’t be able to visit the hair salon as frequently now that I’m a busy resident, but now I love it so much I may be going back again to keep having this done! Efficiency fail.

    You look fantastic! I too am sooooo ready for fall! I love how you’ve styled that fab army vest from Zara! Do they have a lot of great military inspired pieces in now? Military inspired pieces are definitely a trend I’m looking to rock this fall. Again, love the look and thanks for the inspiration! :)

    The darker hair looks SO pretty on you – I love it! And these layers are perfect for fall – I’m anxious for the cooler weather to come to NY too :)

    hi Kristina! I just discovered your blog via Fashionably Average, and I am so genuinely in love with it! I have been reading through it and I just love how open and honest you are! I feel like we are best friends already! Your style is so cute. I especially love the hair!! I just did ombre as well, and I am thinking next time I might go lighter on the ends, but I agree…it is so nice to have such a low-maintenace hair color!!! Can’t wait to read what is to come! -your newest follower!

    I’ve been trying to think of a new hairstyle for a while (I’m a blonde), and thought that blondes couldn’t really do the ombre without looking like we had roots. Thank you so much for giving me something to pin for the future!

    I can’t wait to see more of your fall style…this post just gave me a handfull of ideas!
