As some of you may have seen on Instagram, I just can’t get enough of Blake Lively’s August Vogue Editorial. The rustic glamour is simply captivating & it just makes me so excited for Fall. Obviously I want every piece from this shoot (and be Blake Lively) but that’s just not realistic, so I rounded up some pieces so we can all get the look for less! YAY!

When I packed for this month I didn’t pack any “outfits” per se. I always have a hard time thinking far in advance and honestly my main goal was not to forget anything important – like my bridesmaid dresses or underwear. I brought this striped dress because a. it’s comfortable b. stripes are classic c. I can sort of dress it up or down. I’ve worn it a few times thus far (so proving a useful dress on the trip!), including an afternoon last week on the Cape when I made a little time for myself to pop into some of the shops downtown. So let’s be honest, I wouldn’t call this the perfect ensemble of a put together person (or even an exciting outfit)  - but if you’re an avid reader of The Fab Life, I’m pretty sure you don’t come here to look at perfection. What we have here is a striped dress that I’ve simply accessorized to convey what I was feeling in the moment – which is this: a little classic, a little nautical, a little California bohemian and kind of quirky. Also I’m pretty sure my half-up top knot is my favorite part of the look – AND this knotted rope belt which I bought at Urban Outfitters from the bargain basement TOO many years ago. It always ends up in the “maybe toss” pile but something always makes me keep it…and I’m glad I did!

Enough rambling – thanks for stopping by and keeping up with my August adventures!
