I'm not usually one to want to rush fall as it's our busiest time of year at work, but the heat is starting to get to me. For a month, we've had day after day of 95 degree heat....or higher.
When the heat index gets to 120, you know you're in trouble.
To combat the dog days of summer, I decided it was time to imagine I was Jackie O. (or at least had her clothing budget), and it was October in New York, Paris, Rome or some other romantic yet cosmopolitan city. If I were to pick my favorite fashion designers, Chloe and Chanel would top the list. As I'm still digging a vintage vibe, Chloe's fall line was right up my alley. It has a 1970s Parisian vibe, making it feel very Jackie O.
The neutral palette allows for lots of mixing and matching, which is great for anyone on a budget or who just wants to maximize their wardrobe. To keep a little bit of a late summer feel, I threw in some yellow, and I had to include the orange coat. I still really want an orange coat, although it's completely impractical. I have tons of coats, and they are all perfectly wearable. I think I have a coat addiction, which is not so helpful when it's 100 outside. May there be cooler days ahead!
