Open Knit

9.20.2012


Thrifted caftan sweater (similar style here), 
Navy Headband c/o La Di Da Dee,
Union Jean Cut-Off Shorts (last seen here and here),
Sam Edelman  Lulu Two-Tone Boots (also worn here), 
Vintage moon belt, 
Dooney & Burke vintage crossbody bag.

My schedule lately has been totally out of sync with Lauren's, so it was a welcome sunny afternoon when we were finally able to meet and catch up. Of course this also involved meandering through our neighborhood, picking up new items to add to our collective closet and indulging in small bites across many different restaurants... and maybe a bloody mary. Or two.

I absolutely adore this spiked navy headband that Lauren picked up at La Di Da Dee. She's not one to do much with her hair so this was an effortless way to kick it up a notch. This was also the first time I'd laid eyes on her bag (where has she been hiding this!?) and I think I'm going to have to add it to my fall swap list*.

* Although Lauren and I swap clothes on the reg, every season we do a major clothes return and swap. It's the perfect way to welcome a new season without causing a credit card headache.

  10. I am quite a fan of that purse! I have a very similar one that is black and brown instead of the cream and I'm adoring it for fall outfits already. Hopefully NYC cools down for you guys so that you can post some lovely fall outfits before it jumps right into snowing and being freezing cold!

  16. OH! I LOVE that caftan sweater, and can't believe it's thrifted! I will be hunting one of those down, but what would the chances be? I LOVE the hi-lo nature, and the openness of it all! It's darling!

    Please make sure that all lettering is as big as we can get it, as it’s going up on a big screen projector, and people will need to see it from far away.
