I can feel the seasons starting to turn, so to ease the blow of summer’s end I decided to splurge on a new top! Can’t get enough of the intricate layered detailing on the sleeves and peplum hem…and not to mention, mustard is probably my favorite color to wear. Such a sucker for Opening Ceremony, basically every one of their fall pieces is on my wishlist. What are you most excited to wear once temperatures drop!?

    I am so in love with this outfit! That top is fabulous! I love the colour, and I really love how the sleeves and peplum are a different material. Those jeans fit you like a glove. I LOVE how your shoes don’t obviously match in colour, but perfectly compliment your outfit. Such a great outfit!

    I think those pants are a slightly distressed houndstooth, rather than an ikat. Either way they look great on you. Love the sandals too!

    You are totally right!! Whoops, thanks for the correction. ;)
