Hi there!

I was recently in London, and thought I would call this post the London Look because in London you always have to be prepared for any weather to hit. It was mostly warm but got chilly, so my Ted Baker dress with Aldo loafer mule flats transitioned from a comfortable daytime look to a night look with a little lipstick plus adding a moto jacket like my lavender one by Blank NYC for Nordstrom for the chilly moments and evenings, or a little drizzle. I finished the look with sunnies and my Celine Nano Luggage Tote bag, a favorite. 

As it has started to cool ever so slightly in New York, I thought this was the perfect post as we go from Summer into Fall soon. Don't worry there's plenty more summer beach days ahead, but this look is perfect for when the evenings start to cool off!

Ted Baker and Nordstrom always have the best options for all seasons too!
