simple pleasures -- fall into fall.


COVETING: Club Monaco Eve Dress
www.shopbop.com; $198.50 
It's no secret that I adore men's-inspired wear for the everyday look.  From button-downs to loafers to boy blazers, there's something so unexpected and chic about the aesthetic.  This Club Monaco dress is outrageously charming and perfectly versatile -- perfect to take you straight from the office to happy hour -- and has just enough of the menswear inspiration that I crave for fall without crossing into totally masculine territory,

 Despite the unseasonably cool weather in Minnesota this week, it hardly feels like the end of summer.  Regardless, I'm headed back to Notre Dame over the weekend, and the back-to-school spirit has placed my mind firmly in autumn.  This year's simple pleasures for fall will undoubtedly include leaf-jumping, wrapping up in my favorite cozy scarves, and drooling over the gorgeous ad campaigns that always pop up this time of year.

I'll be taking Monday off to get settled at school, but I can't wait to get completely back on schedule next week.  Wishing you all the happiest of weekends!
