A couple weeks ago, my friend Kristen and I stopped by the AYR showroom. We were both very interested in their clothing and wanted to see it and try it on in person. We had the best time chatting with their employees and both walked out with this amazing dress, smartly named The Everywhere Dress. I am usually not a dress person, and I have to say that I've been wearing this dress non-stop. It is incredibly soft and incredibly easy (a big requirement for a dress for me). Sorry in advance for wearing it every day!

I can't get enough of delicate gold jewelry and am slowly but surely adding to my daily styles. I most recently bought the simple gold band on Etsy and can't recommend it enough. I did a lot of research before to make sure it wouldn't turn my fingers green! So far so good - and you can't beat the price. My best friend and I both have the small heart ring from Catbird as a little friendship ring and the knot ring was a gift from my boyfriend and is from Ariel Gordon.

Here are some that I have my eye on:

jean stories: jessica de ruiter

I came across this awesome feature with stylist Jessica de Ruiter on Jean Stories and had to pass it along. I love absolutely everything about these images but especially:

1. Her amazing bedroom. That light, those windows! See her entire home here.
2. Those jeans. That t-shirt. That sweater. Her jewelry.

I seriously wish I could jump into that room right now and soak up all the sunlight that's coming through those windows! I love how effortless and relaxed her style is and how seamlessly it carries from her clothes to her interiors.

Get her look below:

Can we talk about how amazing the Loeffler Randall new arrivals are?! I now own more of their shoes than I'd care to admit and highly anticipate each season's debut. Their spring collection definitely does not disappoint. My favorites are the Rooney Fisherman Sandal and the Skye Gladiator Sandal (I saw both of these on instagram awhile back and have been dreaming of them since!). And I can personally attest to how amazing the quality of their shoes are - totally worth the investment!

We are heading to LA later this week for Thanksgiving and I could not be more excited for the warmer weather + sunshine (it's currently 25° in NYC and I'm refusing to leave my bed). We'll be spending lots of quality time with Grant's family, but I'm hoping to squeeze in some visits to some of my favorite LA spots and check out some new ones. I'm also going to finally be meeting Jaymee and Janelle and seriously cannot wait for that brunch! Let me know any recommendations you have for cool shops + places to eat - I'm always adding new spots to my list. 

And because I'm so excited to be heading to warmer weather, here's a glimpse into what I'll be packing for my trip:

01 / A classic black bucket bag to hold all the essentials.

02 / A cozy cashmere sweater is a must for me when traveling. Uniqlo men's sweaters are my favorite.

03 / I'm obsessing over these new Warby Parker sunglasses.

04 / A striped tee that will work with everything.

05 / Looking forward to catching up on some reading on our flights.

06 / The best black skinny jeans, hands down.

07 / I finally scored these flats at the LR sample sale + am looking forward to wearing them constantly.

08 / Slouchy, graphic tee perfection (and perfect for a trip to LA).

09 / My new Parcel & Journey clutch is perfect for a night out.

Uniqlo sweater / Barbour jacket / Rag + Bone jeans / Loeffler Randall flats
Cuyana bag (c/o) / RayBan sunglasses

I realized over the past few weeks that I've developed a bit of a uniform for fall. It consists of a neutral sweater (preferably cashmere), skinny jeans and pointy-toe flats, topped off with a utility jacket. I've found Uniqlo men's department to have the best sweaters (and you can't beat the prices) and I finally caved and bought a Barbour
(my best fall purchase by far). Do you have a go-to outfit for fall?


pickwick & weller

You all know how much I love a great t-shirt, so I was really excited when I heard from Pickwick & Weller about trying out some of their tees. I instantly loved their Hanna tee for it's slouchy, boyfriend fit. I also love that they do a home try-on kit, so you can test out 5 styles to find the best fit. I often find t-shirts are too short for me so I loved that I could order tees in their long fit.

Pickwick & Weller is kindly offering Dreams + Jeans readers a 25% discount on their tees by clicking here! Try them out and let me know what you think!
