Fall appeared out of nowhere last week, with temps dropping into the high 50s and the wind whipping down 6th avenue like it's late for a supremely important date.  This time of year is my absolute favorite, not only because I celebrate my birthday in late September, but because it means I finally get to wear booties, coats, and layer chic pieces together to create my first looks for fall.

Over-sized coats are trés glam this season; I found the Crepe Duster Jacket I'm wearing here at a pretty affordable price from TopShop.  I'm dying for it.  It's basically never leaving my body until winter.  I'm also feeling the white collared-shirt again.  I've always been a fan of a menswear inspired look, especially when you can make it a little bit sexy, which I've tried to do here by combining 2 masculine pieces with a super girly leather skirt.

I've finished this look with bright blue booties I got last year from Zara.  I've found some other great options I wish I already owned, like these blue J.Crews I found on Net-a-Porter.  I just dropped a pretty penny on my new Saint Laurent Patti boots in black crocodile leather however, so another blue pair will not be coming home with me for a while.  Ooomph.

Hope you're enjoying the beginning of fall as much as I am!  Big Kiss :)
