I’m wearing the Project Gravitas Cape Blazer in Ivory
As summer slowly drifts off into the sunset, it’s time to start thinking about fall fashions, specifically pieces that can help you bridge the gap from the warmth and carefree days of summer to heavier more substantial accessories and looks that capture the mood of fall. Following are five items that I recently discovered that will definitely be in my fashion arsenal this season. What are your fall must have accessories and fashion staples?
Project Gravitas .01 Josephine Cape Blazer ($248) Without a doubt, my absolute favorite summer to fall fashion must-have is the Project Gravitas Cape Blazer, I’m obsessed with it! This chic beautifully tailored cape blazer is super flattering, it looks like it was plucked off the NYFW runway, it feels spectacular on and it has the perfect flowy design to transition you from summer to fall. I love that this company is all about helping women tap into their confidence aka their ‘gravitas’ and empowering them to own their moment! Additional things that I love about this company is that it is owned by an entrepreneurial woman, all the clothes are made in NYC, they have built in shapewear (woot!) and that each month they feature a Woman of Gravitas and they donate a percentage of their sales to a charity of her choosing.
Amrita Singh Joanna Necklace in Gold/Gunmetal ($100) How gorgeous is this hip yet edgy statement making necklace?! I really like the gold/gunmetal sparkly combo and the gold chain fringe detail, and think that the contrasting light and dark colors along with the substance of it make it the perfect accessory to segue your look into fall. I also love that this is another New York City based company owned by a woman (Amrita) who has become known for blending old and new world Indian designs into her fashion-forward jewelry pieces. LOVE!
DollUp Case Best Makeup Organizer & Magnetic Makeup Palette ($52) was created by makeup artist Nikki Hynek as a stylish way to carry and organize your makeup at home or on-the-road. This clutch is made out of fun and vibrant synthetic leather, it has a hinge opening which allows you to open the case flat for easy access and it has a customizable magnetic palette for all of your makeup essentials. I love that it looks like a chic evening clutch but hidden inside are all your makeup must haves. It’s the perfect hybrid of fashion meets function, and a great way to take your look from day to night or from summer to fall.
OluKai Kaula Lio Wedge Sandals in Black ($100) I don’t know about you, but I have lived in my flip flops all summer long and I am super sad to see them go, but when I saw this black leather wedge sandal, I knew that I had found my perfect summer to fall transitional shoe. This shoe is beautifully made, comes in a variety of dark fall feeling colors, offers nice support and I just love the whimsical stitched design detail on the footbed. To add to the appeal of this shoe is the fact that OluKai is a brand that is all about bringing the aloha spirit to life and giving back to the community.
Bridal Set Ring Suddenly, I have noticed a trend that people are putting off their summer weddings and waiting for the breezier (and less expensive) fall months to host their weddings. So given this trend, it was timely that I was recently introduced to Anjolee, one of the largest diamond jewelry manufacturers in the US. What I found most appealing about Anjolee is that not only do they offer some of the best pricing on diamonds around, they also allow you to customize your wedding jewelry and see a 360 degree image of your piece before you purchase it. So if you plan on tapping into this summer to fall wedding trend, you might want to consider the fab Princess Dreams Diamond Bridal Set which features a princess cut square diamond and gorgeous vintage style millgrain edging. Diamonds never go out of style!
