Warby Parker Archive Collection

Good morning guys! I'm back again to share with you all another amazing collection launch by the one and only Warby Parker. Within the last six months I've helped to announce some of their newest eyewear and sunglass collections, and I'm so excited to introduce you guys to their newest one - their Archive Edition!

My first impression when I first checked out this collection was that it perfectly represents the merging of old and new. The collection features fresh updates on classic styles which is exactly what Warby Parker was going for - vintage inspiration with modern touches! You can never go wrong with the classics, and you definitely can't go wrong with Warby Parker's newest collection. Be sure to check it out and don't miss their amazing sunglass styles and eyewear collection!

J.Crew Pink Rollneck Sweater

If I'm being honest, a bright pink sweater doesn't exactly scream fall, however, there was just something about it that I was so drawn to. I'm a true girly-girl, which may be part of the attraction to pink pieces, but I also just loved the idea of throwing a little bit of brighter colors into my fall wardrobe. It's definitely not your traditional dark, muted fall tones, but I'm totally loving it!

I had fun pairing this sweater with white denim and these adorable leopard mules - definitely styled more for early fall. As we get later in the season, this sweater can be paired with darker colors to help tone down the pink while still keeping it fun and appropriate for fall. How cute would it be paired with this green army jacket!? It's such a versatile piece that the options for styling it are endless.

P.S - I packed this sweater on my recent trip to Florida and it got so much use! I honestly might have worn it almost everyday I was there. Perfect for throwing on in air conditioning and was even super cute paired with denim shorts.  I have no doubt that this will be a perfect sweater all year round.

Friday Finds!

Happy Friday friends! I have a very exciting couple weeks coming up, including a trip to Florida and a long weekend in my favorite city, so I was extra excited for the arrival of this Friday! With the weather here in New England lately, a week in Florida won't feel all that different from home, but I am still so excited for some much needed R&R and family time. It is the first vacation my family has taken together in quite a while, so I am thrilled to be spending a week in a beautiful place with my favorite people. Be sure to follow along over on Instagram - I'll be taking you along for the ride!

And now, for my finds from the week.. enjoy!

Don't Regret Your Twenties // I always love when I stumble across these. There is a multitude of similarly written articles talking about a similar theme of not letting your twenties go to waste. They're always an easy read and leave me feeling reinvigorated to make the absolute most of your twenties, and honestly of your life.

Talking Ambition with Reese Witherspoon // This article is everything. I read it, and then read it again, and I think again. It is that good and it is that inspiring. So much so that I think I want to get a hard copy of it and frame it on my wall. The message that Reese so perfectly shares is one that every woman should hear - and honestly guys too. Her words are motivational and so inspiring.

GG Fall Bucket List // I love a good seasonal bucket list and this one is no exception. It's got all the festive and fun fall to-dos and more! Checks it out and be sure to make your own all bucket list - you can't check out mine here!

Shopbop Sale // If you weren't already aware, Shopbop is having one of their biggest sales of the year and today is the last day!! They're offering 20% off orders under $500 and 25% off orders over $500. This is such a good opportunity to stock up on some new wardrobe staples for fall - check them out before the sale ends tonight!

Fall Favorites: Velvet

Well we officially made it to fall, and in my opinion that means goodbye to any an all summertime clothing! I've been ready for weeks to transition my wardrobe over to fall and now I'm going for it. There are styles, colors, and fabrics that are often fall staples and that year after year make a comeback, and then there are those more trendy styles. I am loving the fall trends of 2017, so much so that I decided to make a little mini-series here on Faith & Fancy to highlight them. Over the next few weeks, I'll be rounding up some of my favorites from each trend to share with you all. First up, velvet!

Velvet is such a beautiful and luxe fabric that I have always loved incorporating into my wardrobe here and there. If I'm being honest, I often associate it more with Christmas and New Years, but I am thrilled to be seeing it pop up into the scene a little bit sooner! When done the right way it is elegant, feminine and adds just the right amount of depth to any outfit. Although it is trending right now, it is by no means a 'trendy' fabric, and I think it is a style that everyone can get on board with!

Are you incorporating velvet into you fall style this year? If so, I'd love to hear how! Leave a message in the comments below and stayed tuned to see which trend for fall I'm highlighting next.

Fall Bucket List

Happy Friday friends and happy first day of fall! As sad as I am to see summer come to a close, the arrival of fall makes saying goodbye a little bit easier. Today marks the official first day of fall - yay! - and I thought it would be fun to share what I have on my to-do list this fall. For those, of you in the New England area, you know that the weather doesn’t seem to want to let go of summer either. As much as I love the warm weather, I am definitely ready for some cooler fall temps around here! I’m hoping that day is right around the corner and I can enjoy some of the activities on my list in some more seasonal weather.

Fall Style with Warby Parker

If you remember a couple months back, I shared a post announcing Warby Parker's mixed materials line. Well I am happy to announce I paired up with them again to help welcome their new fall eyewear collection, and guys, it's so good!

When I think fall, I think rich colors, luxe materials, and definitely tortoise - all of which are found in Warby Parker's new fall collection. I am loving the Cora and the Lila, both styled above. Each of them mixes solids with tortoise to give it just the right amount of 'wow'. The marzipan tortoise frame and merlot colored temples of the Lila is just beautiful. It is the subtlest of statements and just right for fall.

Who said you need one pair of eyeglasses all year long. Let's be real, that's way too boring in my book! With that being said, if you're lacking in eyewear for fall then I highly suggest taking a look at the entire line from Warby Parker, including various styles of sunglasses. They have such an amazing mix of styles - there most certainly is something for everyone!

A Farewell to Summer & Trusting the Seasons of Your Life

Well here we are, the weekend after Labor Day - one week closer to fall and one week further from the end of summer. This time of year, a brief transitional period between the end of what we know as summer and the official beginning Fall, is always bittersweet. While it is of course exciting that Fall is just around the corner, I can't help but always feel a bit sad when summer says adieu. It stems from moving on from the wonderful memories made, and I'm sure I can speak for many when I say that endings are just not my thing, regardless of how much finality they carry. Twenty-three years of life and the end of summer is just as bittersweet now as it was as a kid trading in bathing suits for back-packs. At this point I've accepted that it likely always will be, and that's okay. But I've also come to accept that the seasons will always change - we are never stuck in one, nor do we get to stay in the good ones for ever. Such is life.

J.Crew Fall New Arrivals

I took a stroll through J.Crew last week, and was so impressed with just about all of their new arrivals for fall. If I'm being honest, over the summer I was (do I dare say) disappointed with some of their line. It wasn't awful by any means, but it just wasn't the J. Crew I know and love. This fall line however, is amazing. J.Crew you've redeemed yourself.

I want to share it all with you, which isn't possible, so instead I've rounded up a few pieces that I am absolutely loving. You know the ones that you see and just know you need..? Yeah, these are them for me. I don't think my (or your!) fall wardrobe will be complete without them! Check out my favorites below, and be sure to take a look at all the new fall arrivals here. Enjoy!

What are some of your favorites from above? Leave a comment below to let me know, I'd love to hear!

Friday Finds!

Happy Friday friends and long time now see! Sorry for being a little bit M.I.A as of late - between end of summer festivities and work it's been harder to bring you fresh content, but I promise to be better! A little hiatus has helped fuel the creative fire in me and I can't wait to bring new exciting posts to Faith & Fancy as summer nears a close and fall starts to roll in. Stay tuned!

August Wish List

As the days start to get a little bit shorter and the nights start to have a little bit more chill to them, I find myself reaching for the things I will miss most once the seasons change. August days are some of my favorite but each passing day is a bittersweet reminder that our summer days will soon run out long before we are ready. And with that, I find myself soaking up all the summer things - food, activities, and of course, that summer attire. The easy, breezy, carefree look that can only be found between the months of June and August is one of my favorites. It is and always will be my season of preference, especially when it comes to creating the perfect summertime look.

Friday Finds!

Hello friends! It's been a while since I've done a Friday Finds, but I am happy to bring you one today! It makes me crazy thinking about how fast these summer weekends are going. They always do, and yet I still find myself shocked every summer at how fast they fly by. It's a definite reminder to enjoy them while you can and make the most of these sweet summer days. 

I am thrilled to be heading up to Maine for a weekend getaway. I was first introduced to Maine a few summers back and immediately fell in love with it's coastal charm. The city of Portland is such a gem - it has all the major offerings of a city all while being right on the sea. It is truly the best of both worlds. That first summer I discovered Portland, I came home raving about it to my parents and telling them how much they would love it. A couple summers later and I am happy to report they are finally going to discover all that Portland has to offer.  I am so excited to be taking them with me to explore a city I know without a doubt they will love! 

I hope you all have some fabulous weekend plans in store for the next couple of days. Be sure to soak them in and enjoy! 

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale // One of the biggest sales of the year is officially open to the public, yay! Up until today, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale was only open to cardholders, but as of today anyone can shop. Let me tell you - you don't want to miss it! What makes this sale so special is that it is new, upcoming season pieces that are on sale, so you are getting amazing deals on new pieces for fall. I am not lying when I say the deals are amazing. Items that typically never go on sale, like designer pieces, are included in the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Thank you Nordstrom! It is a great time to take the plunge and go for some of those high-ticket items that you've had your eye on. On the flip side of that, there is a ton of other merchandise that is affordable at it's original ticket price, so it's even better during the sale. It's such a great time to stock up on basics and new pieces for fall. 

The sale is so so good this year, there are so many amazing pieces - I just can't get enough! I already picked up these amazing cropped black denim by FRAME (my fav), this super flattering and oh so soft cashmere sweater (great time to buy cashmere!), and this oversized sweater that will transition great from now into fall.

Americana Inspired Style

Happy almost Fourth! Hope you all have been enjoying and loving this long holiday weekend. I've been trying to make the most of it despite having worked the weekend and heading back in tomorrow on the Fourth. Not having the whole weekend to celebrate makes the moments I do get that much sweeter!

Say Hey to Summer

It's officially summer - yay! I could not be happier to see the arrival of my favorite season and although I've been in summertime mode for quite a few weeks now, I still can't help but get excited. The official arrival of summer gets me thinking of all the fun things I want to do and places I want to visit before the season is over. I hate even saying this, but the end of summer always rolls around much faster than any of us would like, so I want to take advantage of all these summer days while they are here!
