The Sleeveless Trench

Happy Friday, loves! This bi-polar weather has been killing me lately! Now that I've moved into a little studio in Greenwich Village with my roommate, I definitely do not have the closet space for two seasons of clothing. My trick for the crazy weather? Layering! You must be thinking, well DUH--that's what fall is all about. But I'm not talking about layering sweaters and coats and scarves, cause that is just wayyy too hot for the temps right now...despite it being October. Weird, right? 

But anyway, my trick is to layer more lightweight pieces together! With the temperature in the low 60s in the morning, and then up to 70s in the afternoon, it can be really difficult to put together a look that's wearable all day long. So, I like to put together some lightweight piece--such as this striped short-sleeve tee and sleeveless trench to make sure that I won't be freezing during the morning hours or dying of heat later in the day!
Since it still gets pretty chilly during the fall mornings, I like to cover up with a pair of staple jeans. My go-to at the moment are these dark wash skinny jeans--so easy to just throw on and matches with absolutely everything! Pair with your basic pumps and you've got the perfect casual date look for brunch or the movies! 
For a more elevated vibe, I suggest accessorizing with an investment piece--in my case, it's the Chloë Drew saddle crossbody. I've been adding this little fur keychain to it lately, since it gives it that extra unique touch...plus I'm obsessed with furball keychains right now, if you couldn't tell. ;)
Hope you guys enjoyed this little transition look and wishing you all a happy end of week! Any special plans for the weekend?? I'm headed home cause its "fall break" and I can't wait to catch up on some blog "housekeeping" and sleep in my own bed for a change! >.<
