Necklace and bag from H&M. Shoes from Zara. T shirt from Topshop. Skirt from JC Penneys.

It’s been fantastic fall weather in New York the past few days (except for that crazy wind and rain yesterday, which quite literally blew me away), so I turned to some fall colors. Mainly a deep yellow. (I wouldn’t quite call it mustard. Suggestions are welcome.)

I paired this not-quite-mustard yellow skirt with one of my favorite T shirts. I love gray. It’s a soft, comfortable color and it goes with everything. And because I dressed it up with a necklace and skirt, I totally got away with wearing a T shirt to work. When it got chilly, I threw on a black pashmina. All that was missing from my fall ensemble was a pumpkin spice latte. Or a pumpkin beer.

Other ways I wore this skirt here and here.

gone girl

Have you read Gone Girl yet? It’s pretty great. A quick read–easy to get into with twists and turns all over the place. Nick and Amy are a sweet couple (or are they?) who live in New York and relocate to Nick’s hometown in Missouri to take care of family (or do they?). And on their fifth wedding anniversary, Amy disappears under mysterious circumstances. I don’t want to give anything away, but I’d recommend reading it and then we can talk about it all we want! Until then, here’s what I picture Nick and Amy wearing.

Amy is blond, beautiful, and a pretty cool girl. And in the fall in Missouri, I bet she holds on to her New York style but still looks her put-together best.

Nick is gorgeous (of course) and laid back. He runs a bar with his twin sister Margo, and sometimes teaches college classes on journalism. He could easily go from his office to the bar without breaking a sweat.

Have you read it? Let me know what you think!



a very mizzou weekend

Happy Labor Day weekend!

I went to Columbia over the weekend and spent time with some of the very best people in the world. Hope you has as good of a weekend as I did!

Will catch up on posting very soon as I get back into the swing of things after a crazy week last week. #fatcat is adjusting well to the new apartment. I am, too.
