Cuyana Silk Blouse_17

I discovered San Francisco based Cuyana last year after I spotted their monogram tote, and I have been obsessed ever since. (Remember this cape?  Perfection!)  Their mission to “celebrate a life filled with fewer, better things” is a motto I appreciate and strive for when it comes to my own closet. Their collections are a balance of classic styles with a modern aesthetic.  By selling directly to customers (and not through other retailers), Cuyana is able to offer luxury products sourced from the world’s highest quality materials at attainable prices.

When their team told me they created The Perfect Blouse, there was no doubt in my mind that it would be anything less than perfect.  So, I took the  blouse from a casual brunch with friends, to an afternoon of shopping and finally on a date night with FMK.  It flawlessly transitioned every outfit to a comfortable and stylish look throughout the day.  By dinner, it still looked fresh and I felt polished layering it under a leather dress.

If you are looking to invest in quality pieces for your closet this fall, a classic blouse should be at the top of your list.  It’s probably the most versatile wardrobe staple and, when done right, can keep you looking elegant with a simple pair of leggings or jeans.

Simple.  Classic.  Comfortable.  My kind of outfit!

Oullins Jacquard Vest_4

Fall is pumpkin spice lattes, apple cider donuts, and light weight layers. I love this sleeveless sweater vest because it is the perfect weight for the early fall months when layered over  chambray.  I felt like I was curled up in a soft blanket!  For a more causal take, you can also pair it with your favorite leg gins and a cute pair of flats.  It would be the perfect travel outfit – I might just be wearing this on my way to Charleston later this month!

shorts and sweater_1
This time of year makes me miss the north east. Fall is my favorite time of year in the city. I love the crisp fall air, the changing leaves in Central Park and apple picking on the weekend. Note to self, next year we will have to plan a fall trip! For now, I am pretending it is sweater weather in Houston and pairing them with shorts in attempt to ride the fence between seasons.
