Hello September + Summer Highlights

Helloooo, September! This week has been off to a crazy start – insert a short work week, I’m still trying to play catch up + recover from LDW and #NYFW is in full swing – I keep forgetting that we’ve started a new month.. do you?

I love fall for two reasons:

1. fall clothes, obvs. chunky knits, relaxed jeans, and moto boots are definitely my “thing” during the fall.

2. I feel like I get a fresh start with a new season.

Before I officially wrap my head around fall, I thought it’d be fun to take a look back at some of my favorite moments, outfits and trips from this summer. So much happened in so little time, I sometimes forget to look back at all the moments that made it such a great summer. Shall we?

End of May. Insert this shoot with Matt Perrone. These photos are still some of my favorite to-date. You can see the full outfit post here but Ralph Lauren, is mahh jam – and not just because it includes my name.
