Wait, it is fall, right? Then why have some of these last few days felt like some of the hottest we’ve had all summer? Seems like mother nature may be playing tricks on us, but hey, we don’t hate it. Pretty soon I’m sure it’ll be nice and chilly, and we can all partake it a little apple-fritter and mulled wine action. But until then, I suppose we can just keep rocking those open toed shoes and strappy tanks.

We’re not quite ready for fall, but alas, we have succumbed to the fashion world. Gap is one of the many brands who is on point this upcoming season — with slouchy fits, warm neutrals, and lots of texture. It’s hard to say so-long to summer, but the prospect of trendy layers makes the transition a little smoother.

How to Look Cute in a Polar Vortex

New England is a tricky place. Just when you think things are warming back up a bit, it drops to -4 and you’re forming icicles in your hair. It can be challenging to feel cute in such a scenario, but here are some enlightening ideas to keep you not only toasty, but also adorable.gm_howtolookcuteinapolarvortex

// Find a cute puffy jacket (it’s possible, we swear!) Here are some options: JCrew, BCBG, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein

// Fur lined anything – hat, mittens, hood, scarf…you get the picture

// Chunky/knit everything – socks and hats especially!

// A scarf of any kind, your face will thank you from the bitter winds

// Stylish but practical boots – we’re big fans of LL Bean and Hunter

// Layer up with some normal clothing, because chances are, your office is an average of 70 degrees. Throw a light-weight tee under your wool sweater in case you get too hot

So there you have your typical outfit for the next month and a half.. stay warm out there kids!
