September Edit: Preppy Fall Style

If you haven’t noticed, I’m celebrating preppy fall style on the blog this week! I mean, who doesn’t love east coast prep school vibes in the fall? I may not be going back to school, but I can dress like I am! I knew I wanted to round up some of the best preppy fall style clothing items and accessories. But I wanted to find some more modern styles to share with you. Preppy style can be a little too classic sometimes, so I thought it would be fun to find some funkier pieces, like this slightly cropped varsity sweater. Don’t worry, it doesn’t show your stomach if you wear it with high waisted jeans! But it looks more relaxed than a traditional varsity sweater, which I love.

I knew I also had to include a few pearl pieces but again wanted to stay away from any styles we’ve seen a million times before. These edgy spiked pearl earrings are really fun and this pearly headband is a more laidback way to introduce pearls into your wardrobe. And of course, the pearl hair clip trend is still going strong. I can’t believe this pack of pearl hair clips is under $10!

To really lean into the back to school vibes, how cute would this school bag inspired purse be?! These satchels are timeless, but I loved how the gold dots modernized the feel of this design a bit. I think you could totally bring this to the office instead of school! And of course, now is a great time to stock up on a fresh new planner. Brands usually release planners in January or at the end of summer when students go back to school. So if you don’t want to wait until 2020 for a new planner, you can pick up this cute agenda that will last until December 2020! {Ok just writing that is crazy, right?!} Have you seen these adorable book-shaped clutches?? I probably wouldn’t splurge on this style full-priced, but I love Jane Austen so much and in a dream world I would add this special piece to my closet.

I thought another modern way to wear preppy style was to wear non-matching plaids. Similar to how Blair Waldorf would mix multiple plaids on Gossip Girl. If that look is too intimidating, I think this blazer, pants, and scarf would look great on their own regardless! I also really love this plaid infinity scarf because it looks SO cozy…and cozy is what fall is all about! And of course, if you are looking to add some more iconic and timeless pieces to your wardrobe, this blue shirt and gold watch are pretty perfect!

My Perfect Day: Newport RI, with Jess Ann Kirby

September 19, 2019

A Newport RI travel guide!- M Loves M @marmar

It has been way too long since I’ve done a “My Perfect Day” post! I know summer is peak travel season, but I personally love to travel in the fall. The weather is cooler, the prices are cheaper, and there are less tourists! Today I am so excited that my friend Jess Ann Kirby shared her perfect day in Newport, RI! Jess and I met years ago at a blogger conference in New York City and I was just as impressed by her and her style then as I am now. She’s one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram and now she really has me craving a trip to the East Coast!


A Western Inspired Outfit for Fall

September 18, 2019

I love this western inspired fall outfit! - M Loves M @marmar

One of the things you all might not know about me is that I am a country girl at heart. Although, being from Los Angeles makes me feel like I can’t say “one of the things y’all might not know about me.” But trust me, that’s what I’m saying on the inside. I just love everything about the country – the natural beauty of wide, open spaces, the horses and other farm animals, the kindness and neighborly community, the music, and of course the style! I always find myself drawn to bohemian pieces this time of year so when I got the Wynd bootie from Born Footwear, I knew just the outfit I wanted to wear!
