Old Navy Women's Patterned Kneehigh SocksSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Hooray for boot season! I am always a fan of colorful socks beneath boots, and sometimes it can be a fun way to get inspiration for new color combos for your main outfit.  Love the light blue and the burgundy together; not so sure about the burgundy, purple, and lime green all together — but they work in these socks!  They’re $5.50.  Old Navy Women’s Patterned Kneehigh Socks

Library BlazerSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I looooove this kind of look for a casual but chic pulled-together look. Add a few high-end, classic pieces of jewelry and you’ll be the most pulled-together woman at… well, most anywhere. The blazer here is available online only at JCrew.com for $250.  Library blazer

Missoni - Scs3cmd3134 (Blue) - AccessoriesSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Excited about the Target for Missoni collection launching 9/13? If you can’t wait (and want a regular Missoni piece), I like this blue scarf on sale. Love the classic vibe (and the fact that not everyone you know will have the exact same scarf). This one was $218, now marked to $119.90.  Missoni – Scs3cmd3134 (Blue) – Accessories

Reflective WorkitOut KnickerSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

It’s been a while since I’ve been for a proper run, but I’ve been hunting for some new workout duds to encourage me to get out there when my doctor gives me the OK. I’m loving these wicking, breathable running capris with a huge reflective detail on the front and rear of the thigh. Love that the functionality isn’t cumbersome, like the reflective armbands I’ve tried — and the tattoo-like artwork seems more distinctive and noticeable than a simple stripe. They’re $59 at Athleta, available in regular, petites, talls, and plus.Athleta Reflective Workitout Knicker

3.1 Phillip Lim Double Leather Circuit Collar NecklaceSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I bought a leather necklace a while ago from ShopBop and it’s been surprisingly versatile — it’s an easy way to make a simple jeans and t-shirt outfit more chic, but it also works with fancier outfits and even the occasional work outfit. This one from 3.1 Phillip Lim, in shades of black, blue and green, is lovely. It’s $175 at ShopBop.3.1 Phillip Lim Double Leather Circuit Collar Necklace

Rachel Pally Long Wrap Skirt in WaveSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I have such fond memories of the maxi-skirt trend from the last time it came around that a part of me really, really wants to indulge in a great, interesting maxi skirt this time. In general I love Rachel Pally’s stuff — her clothes are very soft, figure flattering, and they wash and wear nicely — and this skirt looks no different. The colors! The waves! The abstract nature of it all! I’d wear it with a simple white tee on a hot summer day — preferably with wedge sandals, of course. This one is $216 at Revolve Clothing.
