1. When it comes to sunglasses, my motto is “go big or go home.” Not only to these Holly Sunglasses fit the mold, they break it. Now that’s what I call doing it big. (hollydiamonds.com)

2. Dance and twirl the night away in this Starry Night/Vincent Van Gogh-inspired skirt. This Retro Stylish Printed High Elastic Waist Short Skirt from Jolly Chic just invites whimsy. (jollychic.com)

3. Meg & Dia would be delighted to find that this Elbow Patch Cardigan is the epitome of cardigan weather. (hazelandolive.com)

4. This Double Breasted Coat provides more than a little pop of red. It gives off an explosion. And just like that, I think I’ve officially warmed up to the idea of colder seasons. (zara.com)

5. From the runways to the walkways, all eyes will be on you when you use this luxurious Madeline Paris Clutch to complement your outfit. If you want to go hands-free, wear it across your body with the optional gold chain. (morninglavender.com)

1. Come sail away with me and this luxurious World Traveler Eternity Scarf. I must say, this darling accessory makes the transition from summer to fall a smooth one. (urbanoutfitters.com)

2. Alice and Olivia’s Piano Bag infuses playfulness and style in this über-unique across-the-body bag. I’ve got the sudden urge to play “Chopsticks,” by the way. (aliceandolivia.com)

3. The label True Decadence at ASOS says it all. This True Decadence Tall Strappy Colour Block Jumpsuit is just that: truly decadent! So many styling options flood my mind when I see something as polished and charming as this. (asos.com)

4. I say “faux sho” to this Faux Leather Pleated Skirt from Forever 21. Someone get me a knit top and a red lip STAT! (forever21.com)

5. Doesn’t this sweater remind you that it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood? Well, don’t mind me while I get my Mr. Rogers on in this preppy BB Dakota Galena Cardigan. Cute sweaters like this soften the blow that fall will be upon us in no time. (shopbop.com)

“Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, which, having no captain, overseer or ruler, provides her supplies in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest.” Proverbs 6:6-8

This past week I started a new job! You’re looking at the first-ever official marketing and communications assistant for 826LA! Such an exhilarating time for me. The position is a one-year contract through AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America), which is like the domestic Peace Corps. For the first time in a while I feel like I’m doing meaningful work, since I’m putting my skills and talents to use at a nonprofit writing and tutoring center that serves students ages 6 to 18. I wore this particular outfit to work on a day that the staff met to set goals for the upcoming year and review its challenges. I must say, it feels great to be a part of a team of like-minded individuals seeking to improve and maximize their effectiveness so that they can better fulfill the organization’s mission. Happy to be on board!
