Sailing into Fall

I'm not sure how the weather is back home in NC, but I'm guessing it's still hot, muggy, and summery! The nice thing about Amarillo is that it's actually cooling off quite nicely. The downfall: we're nowhere near the ocean. Or much of any water for that matter. That doesn't really stop me from loving the nautical, preppy style of these transition outfits, though.

The cooler weather has me thinking about fall, and I'm so excited that we're approaching our trip to New England, which is mid-September. Steven and I are heading to Mystic, CT for the wedding of my dear friend, Emily. Before we make way to CT though, we'll be exploring Boston, Martha's Vineyard (Mass), Providence and Newport (Rhode Island). YAY for more states to check off our list :)

Boo for the sudden realization that the trip is after Labor Day so out goes- white jeans, seersucker, and summery wedges...

In an effort to figure out what to wear, I've done a little bit of shopping. I just picked up this dress from Gap (30% off today!) which will be a perfect transition into fall dress! They also have navy, but my size wasn't available :(

I'm considering purchasing this sweater, since I just picked up green jeans, too! 

And thank goodness for Sarah Vickers to add even more inspiration to my packing list for our trip! Great outfits, not just for the NE coast!
Plaid shirt + boyfriend jeans? Check. Mint + polkadots? Check. If I could just tackle the accesories and styling the way she does, I'll be golden.

I really wish I could splurge on the lobster sweater!
Or one of these Sail to Sable tunics!

Pretty sure we'll be picking up a few KJP bracelets while we're there. Aren't they the cutest? The bracelets, I mean. Although, KJP andd SV's lifestyle blogs are to die for. They are the cutest couple and they take the prettiest photos of their adventures around NE. I seriously can. not. wait!

Now, if I could just find a convertible to rent for cruising the NE coastline, we'll have it all figured out. Let me know if you have any tips...

Your New England trip sounds fantastic! I'll be in Providence next summer, so for sure let me know what fun things y'all find to do/see there. Hope you're loving TX!
