Happy first day of fall everyone! It’s Friday and the start of my absolute favorite season…what could be better? With fall comes sweater weather (my favorite weather!) so today I wanted to share with you all my favorite fall sweater!

There’s nothing I love more than a crisp autumn day, the colorful leaves, a cozy sweater and all things apple cider & pumpkin spice! Give me all the fall feels! I could live in this chunky knit sweater with the cozy turtleneck all season long. I’m also all about the sleeves this season, and these are so cute! It’s the perfect pumpkin spice color, which definitely calls for a day at the pumpkin patch. Celebrate the first day of fall by treating yourself to this sweater, it’s currently 30% off and available in all sizes! It’s also available in a pretty turquoise jewel tone color!

I am thinking I’ll spend my first day of fall trying the new Maple Pecan Latte that launched at Starbucks today and watch Hocus Locus tonight! What’s on your weekend agenda?

Hello Friday, I am so ready for you! After a whirlwind week getting back home from New York, I can’t wait for a little downtime this weekend, although I’m wishing I was still in NYC!

As you may know, I went to NYFW this past weekend for the first time, and it was also my first trip to NYC! Let me just say, I totally fell head over heels in love with that beautiful city..like seriously having withdrawals! I had always thought I would love to live in the city for a year or two in my twenties, and after this weekend, I am already daydreaming looking at apartments, ha!

NYFW 2017 was definitely one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences that I will never, ever forget! There were so many moments where I just had to stop and think to myself “is this really happening!?” Being front row at the Banana Republic x Olivia Palermo collection show (so my very first NYFW runway show!) and seeing Olivia Palermo was definitely top of the list! It was also amazing to finally meet in person so many other bloggers and friends from Instagram at the rewardStyle events I attended!

I adore all things Alice and Olivia, and this dress was one of my favorite looks I wore this weekend! I love the ruffled tiers, colorful floral pattern and touches of velvet. It’s such a pretty dress to take in to fall, and pair with boots. I switched into booties to walk around the city, and I’m also loving the idea of this dress paired with OTK boots! This is definitely a dress worth investing in!

Thank you all so, so much for stopping by and sharing part of your Friday with me! If you have any questions about my NYFW 2017 experience, please don’t hesitate to ask!! Xo, Rachel

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope your long weekend was a good one! I spent my weekend with my first trip to the apple orchard this season, and relaxing before a busy upcoming weekend in NYC! I’m packing up for NYFW and deciding which jackets to take with me for cooler temps, and this leather moto jacket is a must-have, not only for my trip, but for this fall! I absolutely love the gold hardware for a change, usually it’s always silver. It’s also under $100..crazy good deal! If you’re looking for the perfect leather moto jacket, this is the one for you!

Today I wanted to share my top 5 favorite statement jackets for the season! Which one is your favorite? I’ve got my eye on that denim jacket with the pearls! It looks similar to my favorite ripped denim jacket that you may have seen me in and that kept selling out!

Be sure to follow along on my Instagram/Insta Stories (rachelpuccetti) over the next week, I will be sharing my travels of my first trip to NYC, and all sorts of exciting things from NYFW!

Must-Have Thermal Tee for Fall

Hello September! I am so ready for apple picking, sweater weather, cider donuts, and all the fall feels that this month brings! I am also very ready for the long weekend ahead, yay!

Today’s post features a look that I can already tell I will be wearing on repeat this season! How cute is this thermal tee? I’m obsessed! This is one of those tees that I could totally live in all fall, so it’s a good thing it comes in four colors! I just ordered the burgundy too (they’re under $70!) I love the layered look of this top, and it is just SO soft and cozy. I also love the long length that makes this top so cute and flattering! When it really starts to cool down, this will be the perfect layering piece with a sweater. This thermal tee is definitely at the top of your fall essentials list, ladies! I’m wearing a size small for reference.

I also can’t end this post without saying that those impacted by Hurricane Harvey are in my thoughts and prayers every day. My heart breaks for the loss they’ve experienced, and if you haven’t yet donated, there are so many great ways to help out, no amount is too small! This Relief Fund by J.J. Watt has raised an incredible amount of money, and donations to the Houston SPCA or AUSTIN PETS ALIVE is a great way to help out all of the animals left homeless. I wish I could adopt all those sweet pups myself!

Happy Monday, my friends! Can you believe this is the last week of August!? I am definitely looking forward to the long weekend ahead! I leave for NYFW next week (ahh! My first time in NYC too!) so I’ll be using the extra day this weekend to relax and prep for my travels. While I am soaking up every last bit of summer, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited for fall and all that comes with it! Fall clothing is definitely my favorite, and with all the cute new pieces coming out, I am so excited to share today’s fall transition style post with you all!

It has already started to cool down here a little, especially in the evenings, so I’ve been breaking out some of my favorite transition pieces. A dress-lover like myself can’t resist cute, flowy dresses like this one, and there’s nothing I love more in the fall than dresses paired with booties. This dress is so effortless and affordable, too! Navy is also one of my current favorite colors! One of the things that makes this dress/booties combo so great for transitioning into fall is that it’s a little more suitable for these in between temperatures when you really want to break out your fall clothes, but it’s still just a little too warm! On evenings that get chilly, I love adding a cozy cardigan like this one over my dresses. I am seriously obsessed with this look right now! You can see how I styled this sweater in this post, and I also LOVE it paired with a similar dress I wore in this post!

Thanks so much for spending a little part of your Monday with me! Xo, Rachel

Top 5 Favorite Hats

top 5 favorite hats rachel puccetti between two coasts janessa leone wool hat rachel puccetti top 5 favorite hats rachel puccetti Top: Caslon, Denim: Rag & Bone, Shoes: Chloé, Bag: Prada, Hat: Janessa Leone (similar here), Sunnies: Karen Walker, Necklace: Gorjana, Lips: Lipstick- Mehr

When it comes to accessories, hats are by far my favorite! I seriously could collect these wool fedora hats, ha! Not only do I love how they’re the perfect finishing touch to just about any outfit, but it means I don’t have to do my hair…#winning! During the summer I love them with feminine dresses and shorts, and during the fall I love pairing them with, well…just about everything! The possibilities are endless when it comes to styling these hats in the fall, whether it’s a sweater and jeans/leggings, a cute dress and booties, a moto or utility jacket, or just with denim and a tee!

Today I wanted to share my top 5 favorite hats with you all as we start thinking about our fall wardrobes! I also wanted to mention that while some of these hats may seem a little pricey, I promise they are well worth the investment! You will get SO much use out of them, and they will hold up perfectly! One of my favorite things about hat brands like Janessa Leone or Rag & Bone, is that they come in sizes. So often I’ll find an inexpensive hat, but they’re so tight on my head! (Maybe that’s a personal problem? lol!) It’s so nice to choose your size so that it’s comfortable all day long. You wouldn’t believe me if I told you how many compliments I get every time I wear one of my hats. I seriously have some of the funniest stories about people stopping dead in their tracks or going out of their way to come and compliment it. I knew I loved them, but I guess I’m not the only one! And you will too!

When it comes to dresses, I can’t say no to a pretty bell sleeve! I just love how they can turn an otherwise simple dress into a stunning statement piece. I am so excited about today’s post, as I’m sharing another look from my travels in Paris earlier this summer, featuring the perfect bell sleeve dress!

Milly will always be one of my favorite designers, so when I came across this dress I not only knew that I had to have it in my wardrobe, but that it was just the type of dress I’d been looking for for Paris! This look couldn’t have been easier, but was still trés chic, which is exactly what you need for a full day exploring Paris! Anytime that I can slip into a dress and instantly feel fabulous is a win in my book! Just pair with your favorite bag and shoes, and it’s as easy as that!

This bell sleeve dress truly is the perfect dress to have in your wardrobe. It’s that one that you’ll pull out time after time, perfect for any occasion or event that might come your way! Whether worn during the day with a cute sandal, or dressed to impress for a glamorous evening, this dress will get you there!

Don’t hesitate to add such an essential dress to your wardrobe, ladies!

Hello, loves! I am SO excited to finally share my room reveal with you all! It was definitely one of my most requested posts, and after adding a few finishing touches over the last few weeks, I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! I hope you do too!

I wanted my room to be light and bright, and be a place that was always pretty and relaxing! I went with mostly white bedding, and added soft touches with pillows and cozy throws. I knew I wanted to incorporate my favorite color combo of blush pink and grey, and I just love how all the grey accents and pops of pink make the room cozy, yet still chic! I couldn’t help but add a few parisian touches too! This gorgeous mirror and my Paris prints are some of my favorite pieces in my room! Who doesn’t want to go to bed dreaming of Paris?

I think you will be as excited to find as I was that just about everything in my room is very affordable while appearing to be high end, and I couldn’t be happier with the quality of it all! I hope you’ll find that this is perfect for the girl on a budget! I even have a few Ikea hacks in my room! This dresser has been fantastic, and I’m obsessed with how the handles turned out that I added on from Hobby Lobby (so easy!) It doesn’t get much better than finding such a large and pretty piece of furniture (with tons of storage) for under $200!! These shelves that I spray painted gold (only $50!) are the perfect piece to display my handbag collection! I think that corner with my shoes and handbag collection might be my favorite little part of my room, ha!

This gorgeous headboard I ordered from Target is my everything! I seriously can’t recommend it enough! It’s just as pretty in person, and truly is great quality. They are always having some sort of furniture sale, so I got an amazing deal on it, but it looks like I could’ve spent thousands on it! At the end of a long day, I can’t wait to cozy up in bed with a good book and one of my favorite candles burning!

I also want to mention my wall color. It’s Benjamin Moore ‘Nebulous White’, and it turned out to be the perfect color. If you’re someone that wants a soft, bright room, but you don’t want to commit to fully white walls, I think you would love this color! It looks fantastic with a white palette, and has a subtle blue/grey tint.

I hope you this room reveal gave you a little bit of room inspiration, and if you have any questions about anything, please let me know!! XO, Rachel
