August Edit: Early Fall Style

As much as I am enjoying our warm summer weather, I can’t help but get swept up in all the new fall fashion. I am a sucker for coats, boots, and cold-weather accessories! I had so much fun dressing up for the cold weather in New York last fall, but truthfully around here, early fall style ends up lasting all season. Which is why I wanted to pull together a few style options for that awkward period where summer is ending and fall is starting!

Clothing-wise, these in-between days are SO hard to dress for. Which is why I wanted to include a few light tops and a trench coat. Starting with a light layer makes the most sense for days that are still warm, but you can easily throw on a trench coat if you get cold in the mornings or night. I love that this trench is designed to be soft and warm instead of rain resistant. A silk camisole can be layered under a trench, or a cardigan. And this white blouse would be so perfect with jeans anytime of year!

For accessories, shades of camel seemed more appropriate than black. Light enough for summer, but still classic once fall starts. I am OBSESSED with this ladylike handbag. It would be a great work bag! These camel slides would be perfect for summer, and these lighter colored boots would be ideal for fall. Both match the bag and trench, so you could just swap them out when the weather changes!

It’s not time for warm scarves just yet, but this light scarf comes in two pretty shades and can add a little extra warmth or be worn in your hair. Or you can tie it on a structured handbag. And beauty-wise, a berry-toned lipstick is flattering any time of the year!

Why I’m Embracing Colorful Prints Right Now

I am crazy about colorful prints! - M Loves M @marmar

Lately, I’ve really been into wearing button-down shirts with colorful prints! First of all, button-downs are so easy to wear for those casual days when you’re running errands or just hanging out around the house! Add a fun print to your basic button-down, and you’re set for the summer! I love wearing fun, printed button-downs, like this one, because they instantly dress up my outfit with jeans or shorts, and also look cute with a front tuck!


What I Wish I Knew Before Buying Our First House

What we wish we knew before buying our first house! - M Loves M @marmar
Buying a home was one of the most exciting and stressful things I think Matthew and I ever did. There was so much that we had no idea about, and a lot we learned in the process. Looking back, there are several things that I wish we had known and done beforehand that maybe would have made our lives a little bit easier. I know so many of you are in a similar stage of life so I thought I’d put together this post in hopes of giving you something to think about regarding one of the biggest purchases you’ll probably ever make! Because once you get certain things out of the way, you can start thinking of the fun stuff… decorating!
