Don't be afraid to reveal the inner-child in you this Fall.  Trends for patterns and prints vary every season, but we inevitably still see them on the runway to a certain degree.  Graphic sweaters and tees?  Not so much.  While designers display them from time to time, it's rare for a wave of highly revered ones to be so forthright about them.  However, I've noticed that from the collections of Stella McCartney to Max and Co. to Burberry, graphics are 'fall'-ing in style.  The sweaters above are some of my favorites, and if you know me, when I shop, versatility ranks at the top of my priorities.  You can easily throw on a cardigan vest or blazer with these sweaters in mild weather or grab a warm, puffy vest on colder days.  From slipping on a pair of classic denim jeans to flaunting a bit of skin with cute skirts, you won't have to stress about searching for the "right" bottom.

TGIF, everyone!  I still can't believe that it's Friday.  Labor Day Weekend has already arrived.  Last Labor Day, our family went to The Taste (food festival) thanks to the free tickets I received from PBS during my internship there.  Since we hosted a BBQ about 3 weeks ago, our family's planning on taking it easy and going out for brunch by the beach.  If you have any exciting plans, do share!

Currently: interior and furniture shopping with my mom; updates to come, soon! Until then...
