Outfit of the Week: Stargazing

Jesse L. Brooks


Autumn is right around the corner, and we're in the mood to get cute and cozy! This week's look will take you on a cosmic journey into fall, filled with fabulous fashion. 
We're starting off with the eye-catching piece that inspired our total ensemble: a starry, psychedelic print inspired by '70s band posters. There is a throwback appeal to Zimmerman's silk-twill miniskirt designed in a playful bubble hem silhouette. Keeping jewelry on the low-key side, we opted for a single stud that brings the star power we're after. Alison Lou's white star earring features a crisp enamel star set in rich 14-karat gold.
We love all of the fall hues in the skirt, and decided to add a touch of sunshine with the matching top. Patou's narrow ribbed turtleneck sweater is made of stretch merino wool, giving its wearer a fitted yet comfy appearance. Since we are prepping for cooler temps, we are more than ready to swap our casual flip flops for a hip pair of boots. These mid-calf beauties from Paris Texas are an '80s design made modern. Crafted from brown suede, they have almond toes and low heels with snake-effect embossing. 
While staying true to our color story, we wanted a bag that was understated, yet unique. Danse Lente's mini "Phoebe" style is an elegant accordion-like bag with two compartments. The signature handle fastenings are inspired by the spiral binding of a notebook, evoking a more feminine, academic touch to this sleek yet structured design. Since this outfit is perfect for a day at the pumpkin patch, sunglasses are in order. No one delivers glamour to the eyes quite like Linda Farrow. The brand's "Jerry" option features oversized circular acetate frames set in a chic shade of Tobacco. Last but certainly not least comes an extra splash of color via our makeup. Sephora Collection' s jumbo multi-stick can be used as an eyeliner or blended out as eyeshadow to last up to 12 hours. This shade of sumptuous gold is perfect for an early dip into the tints of autumn. 
Whether you plan on visiting an apple orchard or you're just in the mood for a seasonal change, in this outfit, you will be ready for some stylish "Stargazing" wherever you turn up.
