Oh Fall where are you? I know it's still August but my North Face vest is calling me and it needs a bit of a chill in the air to be worn. It's warm and easy to throw on when you're out on a hike or watching a game but also a winner with skinny jeans, high heeled boots, scarf and dangly earrings. Brrrrrrrrilliant.

Friday Night: What I'm Wearing by Alisa Neely @ SCOUT

I have an amazing friend whom I've known for quite some time and through all the years and stages we have been through together (pregnancies, babies, etc, etc) she has remained cool, constant and oh so chic. This girl is a writer, designer (she designed and owned her own childrens' line that was highly coveted) and super Boston stylist/personal shopper who truly makes me feel hipper just knowing her. Her company is called SCOUT and she writes an informative and on the pulse fashion blog with a feature called "What I'm Wearing..." where you can not only see the outfit but you can purchase each item in it! But while online gawking is fun, this girl needs to be met in person. Scout's honor.

I caved and I'm not sorry about it. Bought my kid his first pair of TOMS and pretty soon the whole family will be wearing them (husband excluded). They're sporty, functional, easy to get on and more importantly they support an amazing cause. With each pair you buy, TOMS will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need. That's fashion to feel good about.

I'm in love with another man and if he leaves his wife, we're running away together. I just have to actually meet him, and getting him away from his perfect wife could be tricky. You see, I went to a Coldplay concert a few weeks ago and while Chris Martin sang his way into my heart, Gwyneth (his wife) became the object of my thoughts. I sort of hate and love her at the same time. Either way, I can't stop watching her. So if you haven't signed on to GOOP you might as well. You will roll your eyes like crazy but then I swear you will pick up some great tips, recipes, skincare products and simple but great ways to put together an outfit. Damn her.

My mother in law (who has great style btw and could pretty much convince me to wear anything she picked out) asked me my opinion on a sweater but before I could answer she said, "I know you'll tell me the truth", implying that I had always been straight with her before so she could trust what I said now. But while she and some friends might appreciate honesty, others may not. They may ask for your "honest" opinion but would really appreciate the lie. Hard to tell, but not being straight or talking behind your friend's back is way worse. I say be honest and if your friend gets mad.... maybe she wasn't your friend to begin with.

A friend and I went to see Moonrise Kingdom last night and while we weren't sure exactly how we felt about the movie, today I do find myself craving a bit more of its sensibility and the characters' wardrobes. Knee socks, saddle shoes, short dresses and blue eye shadow...school girl gone right. Build your own Kindom at Asos.

On a recent trip to Sun Valley, Idaho to visit family we had pictures taken by a friend. She had such a great way with the kids (as well as the adults) that she wound up capturing everyone's true spirit in a matter of minutes. If you're ever in the area, spend the half hour and book her to photograph your family, friends, wedding. Find her at Tessa Sheehan, Ketchum, ID on Facebook 
or email her at tessasheehan@gmail.com.
