Even though it’s at least 85 degrees here in Denver, I’m ready to gear up for fall. Today, EmersonMade made me even more desperate for a temperature change when it posted new, beautiful items for the fall. (See the full selection here.)
Must-haves on my EmersonMade list?

Don’t know what to wear to work? Try something vintage.
Not only are vintage clothes cut in a way that’s flattering on a wide range of body types but they are just oh so girly and fun.
On a slender frame, the feminine cuts of the 50s and 60s create curves and play up the feminine edge. On a curvier frame, vintage cuts hug in all the right places. They’re not only flattering, but they are affordable and timeless, making them a fun additional to your working wardrobe. With the help of Etsy.com, I’ve started a list of vintage favorites that I would love to sport to the office.
A few years ago, I wouldn’t be caught dead in a chambray shirt. At that time, you would have been much more likely to find a chambray on my dad (worn with jeans for a denim-on-denim look, of course!) than on the pages of a fashion magazine. But these days, I’m obsessed with the feminine cuts and lovely details popping up on all sorts of chambray shirts. Tuck a chambray shirt into a basic black or even a floral print pencil skirt for an office look that’s hip and pretty. After work, keep the chambray, but slip out of the pencil skirt and into some slender black cigarette pants or a mini for a date-ready look.
This Ann Taylor top ($78) is a great example of a professional look that incorporates the chambray shirt.
J Crew has quite the variety of chambray shirts. This little love number ($98) would look great with a classic black or solid color pencil skirt.
This chambray shirt, from Banana Republic ($69.50), would look great with a graphic print pencil skirt (it would also be a dream with this).
This pretty print (Cotton Cloud) from Jigsaw has me appreciating clouds even on a gloomy overcast day.
(P.S. this would look great with a chambray shirt – look for a post about the chambray trend coming soon)
