i swore i would never do this...

i guess it's true what they say: never say never.

upon starting this blog, i swore up and down that i would never do an "outfit of the day" post.
but alas, here i am doing just that.
you can only delay the inevitable for so long - or in my case, 8 days.
so, i present to you my very first 'outfit of the day' blog post...

shirt - aritzia; skirt - bcbgeneration; shoes - material girl; nails - smokin' hot (essie)

i've been trying to find ways to incorporate some of my favorite summer pieces into my fall wardrobe.
i purchased this skirt at the very end of summer but haven't really got a chance to wear it much.
alone, it screams summer but by pairing it with a long sleeve shirt, i was able to make it a little more fall appropriate.
i chose to pair my outfit with black wedges due to the black underlay and leather detail of the skirt.

*we tried to do a walking shot - failure.
i'm never doing a walking shot again.

are any of you desperately trying to find ways to still wear your favorite summer clothes?
what are some of your tricks?

ps. all of these photos were taken by my lovely princess assistant, gabriella.

*she's actually not my assistant nor is her name gabriella.
she does think she's a princess though...
