The transition to fall has been a little awkward this year - it's still warm here in CT so I've been trying to mix in some fall-ish pieces with easy to layer things like lace tanks or cutoffs. I'm also opting for some lighter sweaters as you can see above. (And still waiting for the fall leaves to show up here too.) Regardless, you can still look 'fall ready' even if the temps or scenery isn't saying so!

Why I Stopped Burning Candles

I've posted a few different instagram stories lately that have sparked quite the spur of messages from you guys, so I thought doing a full blog post would be much better than trying to manage snippets of conversation here and there via instagram DM.

If you never saw those stories, or want a quick refresher.. here are some links:

Pumpkin Spice Air Freshener Causes School Evacuation
Elle Magazine - Burning Candles Can Be Toxic for You
Huff Post - The Big Problem with Scented Candles
Woman's Day - Researchers Say Scented Candles Pose Serious Health Risks

Before we get started, let me just say this post is a little long - much longer than my typical posts here on Style Cusp.

This fall has been seriously strange here in Connecticut. This past weekend it was in the high 70's with 85%+ humidity - HARDLY fall by any means! Most of the leaves are still green, and I still have my AC on a lot of days. Trying to get into that 'cozy fall vibe' spirit is a little hard..

Columbus Weekend Sales

ANTHROPOLOGIE MUG

Happy Weekend everyone! I cannot believe we are already headed into the second week of October.. September just FLEW right by on me. We're right in the middle of what should be fall here in CT - but we've have warmer temps still in the 70's and the trees are still mostly green.. I'm going to ignore the climate and head out to a new to me farm in Connecticut on Saturday: Rose Berry Farm. Stay tuned for pics + snaps on instagram, I am sure!

Shopbop Fall Sale Picks

Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm pushing out my whole 30 wellness wednesday post this week since the Shopbop sale is kicking off today! I checked into the Mayflower Grace here in CT for a little getaway/staycation with Haley last night and today we're exploring this adorable little country town and taking a few hours of downtime at the spa. Don't worry though, I already stocked my cart with some of these Shopbop picks below! Instead of my usual shopping collages, I decided to break things down in a few categories and show you guys a piece I've worn recently..
