Fall Days in NYC: Navy Shifts, Pearls and Structured Bags


New York City was pretty toasty today, but I couldn’t help but wear this gorgeous dress from Julie Brown’s fall 2013 collection! Luckily, its material is the perfect weight: light enough for those warmer fall days, but heavy enough for the colder ones, too. (Can’t you just imagine it paired with a blazer and some cute tights?) Keep on the lookout for this beauty, as it’ll be available soon!

Dress: c/o Julie Brown / BraceletsJ.Crew (also available in the color version) and c/o Hazel and Marie / Bag: C.Wonder (Sold out), but loving the new C.Wonder leather tab-lock bag in black / Necklaces: Paradise (monogram), similar here (And check out the monogrammed earrings and ring!); and J.Crew (Old), same necklace in J.Crew Factory here / PumpsKenneth Cole (On crazy sale!) / WatchMichael Kors / LipstickClinique / EarringsJ.Crew, less expensive version here

Earlier this evening, Mitch, Shawn and I headed to Croxley’s Ale House, one of our absolute favorite restaurants in the East Village. (Crazy good wings specials. On Fridays, they’re even free!) We then grabbed slices at Artichoke Pizza on 14th Street. (Best slice in town, if you ask me. ;)) Now, I’m snuggled up on the couch watching The Great Gatsby.

Happy Friday, fashionistas! Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

  • Mmm, such a gorgeous print! I’m so excited for the transition into fall :)

    I love Croxley’s! Have a great weekend.


    • Ah, me too! It’s seriously my favorite spot. Free wings?! Sign me up. :)

      Thanks so much, Danielle! :)



  • I love the outfit, but I have to ask. Did you take this in the middle of 14th Street? I would’ve been so nervous from all the stares and cars! Props to you Kelly! :)

    • Haha! You’re so cute. Not 14th Street… It’s 1st Avenue between 14th and 15th… There’s a length light before it, so there’s a long break between traffic. But you’re totally right… it does look pretty terrifying hehe!



  • Fabulous dress-looking beautiful!

    • Thank you so much, Shira! :)



  • Christina, Esq.

    Absolutely love that dress- and agree, it’ll be great with tights + a blazer come late fall too!

    Happy Friday!

    what a beautiful dress, Kelly! You look so cute in it and I think it’s definitely a great investment piece! I can definitely see it with a blazer and tights in the Fall/winter – can’t wait to see you style it again! Hope you had a great weekend :)
