Black + White + Stripes All Over

I have an obsession with stripes, especially of the black and white variety (as you can see from this post!). This cardigan from Caralase has completely won over my heart and will get a lot of love this fall. It’s comfortable, totally cute, and can either be dressed up or dressed down. What isn’t to love?

Fall Break Style

It’s Fall Break, which means midterms are over (finally!!), and I have some much needed time to relax and enjoy one of my favorite times of year with my family. On our first night together, my mom and I whipped up a fall favorite for dinner…butternut squash soup (look out for the recipe coming to The Pace soon!!). My mom is also an avid reader of The Pace (so supportive 🙂 ), so while we were grocery shopping, she reminded me to pick up a pumpkin to cross off Number 3 from my Fall To-Do List: carving a pumpkin!

One of my favorite things about fall is layering. This sleeveless top (similar here) transitions perfectly from summer to fall with the help of this over-sized cardigan (similar). The secret behind this look? It’s borrowed from the boys! My boyfriend, Eric, was about to toss this cardigan from Zara into the donation box when I convinced him to donate it to my closet instead ;). Now, I wear this cardigan with everything—dresses, sleeveless tops, tee shirts…you name it! It’s the perfect layering piece.
