If you follow along on Instagram, you know I went to Nantucket at the end of the summer. With all that has happened between now and then, it seems like it was at least a year ago! Isn’t time funny like that? I’ve been saving this post for when it felt a bit more like fall because posting this at the end of the summer felt a bit like when you go into the stores and see sweaters… you just sweat looking at them. Well, now that we’ve had a few (as in 2 or 3- ha!) days where the temperature has dropped, I’ve been thinking a bit more about fall and fall clothes. It has me extremely excited for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas!
Anyway, here’s what I wore in Nantucket. There are a lot of really great items for fall and in general in this post. Brace yourselves. Ha!
I love these green skinnies I picked up. They are a perfect transitional piece as we move into fall. I also love this new wool blazer I got for the trip. I think both pieces will become staples in my fall wardrobe.
These jean shorts deserve a post to themselves. I haven’t loved a pair of denim shorts this much since I blogged about my last favorite pair (here). What makes this pair so great is that, when they are unrolled, they’re the perfect length and don’t hug the thigh. I also love the raw edge.
I tried to wear my long navy cardigan with this dress but couldn’t find it anywhere, so I grabbed my new black blazer. Well, it was a happy happenstance because I think black looks less matchy-matchy and more chic! Btw, I can’t stop using this trick since this happened. Navy and black forever!

I love tucking in blouse-y tops to define a waistline, especially when wearing a skirt that flares at the bottom. It’s an easy way to avoid the “tent” look. I also love pairing skirts and shorts with long sleeve tops for a little extra warmth.
This outfit is just easy. When in doubt, I love to wear black and white with a pop of color!
I’m taking my typical uniform up a notch with my new, funky hemline jeans! It took me awhile to get used to this trend. Now, I’m all in!
This is the outfit I wore when we hung out in Boston for the day. I wouldn’t normally put this combination together for fear that I would look like a Christmas Tree, but I love the way it turned out.
I hope this post got you as excited as fall as a pumpkin spice latte!
