styling a trench vest

It might still feel like summer, but when September rolls around, out come the ankle boots, scarves and vests. This sleeveless trench (similar style worn here and here) is such a perfect piece for me because it brings in the fall vibes without making me schvitz like cray.

For example, when Christian snapped these photos this weekend we were having a heat wave and it was a breezy… 98 degrees. No big deal. I’ve worn a similar look before with strappy sandals during summer, but pairing this look with this sleek Isola ankle boots definitely takes this look to a transitional fall ensemble, and it makes me want to light a pumpkin scented candle and watch Ole Miss football.

I can’t believe I just said that.  Clearly I’m getting carried away, there’s no way I really meant that.

Are you guys also addicted to the sleeveless trench and ankle boots? I have a vintage Burberry trench but I find myself wearing this one 10x more, go figure.  Thanks so much for reading! XO –

  1. You are such a beauty! I love this sleeveless trench – thinking I need one in my closet stat. Talking about trench coats, I finally got myself one this past winter and I’m obsessed! Seriously don’t know how I survive so long without one! Your Burberry one is beautiful – I’ve seen it in past posts!! Xx

    1. Girlfriend – you would wear it all the time – I’m telling you! Move to California and we’ll share! 🙂

  2. I am absolutely taken by this entire ensemble! The sleeveless trench is absolutely perfect for transitioning from summer-to-autumn. And those booties are to die for! Such a classic, sophisticated look, while at the same time being so easy! And you accessorized perfectly. Lovely!

    1. Oh my gosh I want to reach through this computer screen and hug you! I’ve actually exercised 3x in the past month because I’ve been so busy, BUT my fall plans involve a lot more movin’. When I do have the time I prefer pilates, yoga and walking the dog (probably in that order, don’t tell Bailey). I try to eat healthy during the week so I can party on the weekends! 🙂
