Maroon and Gray for Fall | Shades of Sarah

Confession: these photos weren’t taken anywhere near Fordham’s campus, or by a Fordham student. Two Fridays ago, I had the pleasure of meeting up with my blogger friend Hannah (and NYU freshman), of Mademoiselle Hannah. She’s so lovely and gracious in person, and it definitely comes across in her writing – check out her blog!

We had lunch together and spent the rest of a blustery fall afternoon shopping. We stopped by the new Joe Fresh store – it’s a brand from Canada designed by one of the co-founders of Club Monaco. I may have gone a bit too far there, but I swear, I bought investment pieces! And things that were on mega-discount. We also did some thrifting in the Village, where I bought a Catherine Malandrino scarf for five dollars. NBD. So what if Hannah had to tell me who she was? ­čśë

Of course we wouldn’t be proper bloggers if we didn’t stop to take outfit pictures. (You can┬ásee the outfit pictures I took of Hannah┬áhere.) This outfit is as preppy and as school-spirited as I’ll get without it being gameday. This is my first-ever blazer – I love the fleece fabric and the unexpected maroon color. My love affair with polka dots continues with this gray Target dress (it’s from the kids’ section!). I even added maroon tights and maroon and silver shatter nails to match!

So what have you all been up to? Looking forward to Thanksgiving? I have another Hitchcock paper to get through before the holiday, but I’ll be spending part of my break on Long Island and then Philly. I’m really looking forward to it – maybe I’ll even bake again. What are your plans?
