It has been such a busy time with lots of work and very little down time! On top of that, fall weather is descending upon DC and I’m waking up to chilly temps (that are kind of amazing). Time to pull my boots and all of the burgundies, caramels and evergreens out of my closet.
I was so lucky to get to spend a long weekend in New York. I was there for work to attend events at the UN General Assembly Week, which was really interesting in itself, but I also had a chance to do some exploring in the city!
It’s hard to argue against Olivia Palermo having the best style. It’s classic with the perfect amount of trendy, and she always looks completely flawless. As we settle into fall a bit more, I’m thinking about all of the potential layering that’s to come, and I love this outfit for a casual autumn weekday.
September is an easy favorite month. The hottest days of the year are behind us (particularly thankful for this) and the “new year” seems full of promise, with so many holidays and events to look forward to. I have a few things on my wishlist now that the season is mid-switch.
This coming weekend will be a long one thanks to Labor Day – it’s the last major holiday (read: the last one we get off work for) we get to enjoy before Thanksgiving. Eric and I have started a tradition with friends of taking a trip every year over the long weekend, but this year we’re lucky to be a part of a wedding instead!
I spent part of my weekend doing a bit of closet clean-out. It felt so good to get rid of some pieces that I hardly got around to wearing. I’ve been trying to simplify my wardrobe (not quite to capsule size, but definitely more minimal) and this was a big step in doing so.
A big change is coming up for me – I’m starting a new job! I’ve been doing marketing for an architecture and design firm for nearly three years (my first job out of college), but I’m excited to be moving into a communications role at a global health nonprofit.
So often in summer, we resort to wearing a t-shirt dress to the office, or live in our sandals no matter the occasion. While this is definitely comfortable, it’s easy to lose the professionalism at the office.
Last night, Eric and I celebrated seven years together. It’s so crazy to think that we’ve been together for such a large chunk of our lives at age 25 – we started dating right after I graduated from high school!
