I find myself hovering around neutrals and solid darks as the season moves forward–chilly temps make the best setting for a more monotone palette. If it were me 5 years ago, blacks + greys were considered sad and drab, but thank goodness for personal style evolution. Even with grunge vibes, greyscale + solids are probably some of my favorites for anyday wear. Also, how fun is this fluffy blanket scarf for fall? It’s so enveloping of warmth that I often can go without a coat, for now…

It’s always refreshing to find an hour or so in the week to get downtown and [window] shop along Church Street. Overly-packed schedules and running from class to class can be draining, but the energy & quirkiness of Burlington is the best way to refocus and feel like an actual part of society again (in opposition to stowing away in the dark corners of academic buildings for hours on end. Not real life.)

This grey striped Project Social T top from Urban is without a doubt the softest tee I’ve ever come across – so much so that I was compelled to buy a second in a super light shade of brown (the perfect shade for brunettes, when otherwise I try to steer clear of brown altogether) – I wore it in an Insta post yesterday. The striped version paired perfectly with my leopard burlap cordones from Toms – a subtle mix of prints that isn’t too overpowering.
