My favorite month of the year has come and gone – and while I'm super excited that it's finally feeling like fall in NYC, I really would've loved September to last a little longer. The beginning of my month was chock full of fashion week and I got to do some pretty cool backstage visits this time around for my day job (Jason Wu + Alexander Wang, to name a few😭). The middle portion of September was super busy, and I kicked off this last weekend celebrating my birthday (yep, it's my JORDAN year guys!). Miss Linds decided to surprise me and drove home from D.C to come out with me for the night – and it was, hands down, one of the best birthday weekends I've had in a long time. Without further ado, here are some of my favorites from this AMAZING past month.



God bless Tees + Tank You. Not only am I excited to style this tee for October, the girls at TATY know me so well to send this baby over. LYDIA DEETZ is my spirit animal and I can't wait to proudly wear this in her honor. 


As one of my birthday gifts, I purchased out a couple a statement pieces for the coming months – and this baby was on the top of my list. This Privacy Please Krause dress is a gorgeous burgundy velvet that I simply couldn't resist. Stay tuned to see where I'll be headed in this number during October ;). 


This is an oldie but goodie – I've recently been turning back to my classic Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac on nights out this past month. It's super roomy but still pretty delicate and cute – and it's just the perfect Fall accessory. 


As part of my September Rocksbox, I received these GORGEOUS hoops by Rudiment. They're a really pretty soft gold with some rougher hard edges – so up my alley with a twist on the classic hoop shape. 


The pièce de résistance of my month has been these incredible Augustine Velvet mules by Sam Edelman.  Like, how FREAKING gorgeous are these guys? They're super comfortable too, and I will be wearing them non-stop this fall.

I thought it'd be fun to share a few photos from my birthday weekend – a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who came out and especially Linds for giving me the best birthday surprise. For those wondering, we started Friday night at the bar at NOMO Kitchen, then headed to Fig 19 – a cool cocktail spot on the Lower East Side hidden behind an art gallery. We capped off the night at Home Sweet Home, one of my favorite dance spots. Saturday we spent the evening sipping on my favorite – gin, at no other than Bathtub Gin in Chelsea.
