Fashion ft. Back East Boutique, transitioning to fall

Fall is riiiiight around the corner, making me v. happy, and also leaving me at a loss for what to wear. It’s always something of a shock to transition your summer wardrobe to fall, so some new pieces are sometimes necessary to make the transition easier. That’s why I love this gorgeous new top I just got from Back East Boutique.

Back East Boutique is a small online shop focusing on boho-style clothing, and even though the word “boutique” is in the shop’s name, it’s actually quite affordable. Their story is also pretty incredible: the owner and founder moved back east (hence the name) from LA when her son got sick, and managed to combine her love of fashion and style with her entrepreneurial attitude, transplanting her fashion career into a business, based in her Maryland hometown. Pretty inspiring stuff!

I love the style of this top, the fringe, and the fact that it’s a sleeveless sweater—making it perfect for a transition piece. I wore this top on a cruise around NYC at night, and it was the perfect mix of summer and fall vibes. 🙂

Also, I’ve been reading Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass, and in the beginning of the book is a poem, and it seems appropriate to include here!

In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die;

Ever drifting down the stream—
Lingering in the golden gleam—
Life, what is it but a dream?

Also, as a special bonus, enjoy 10% off Back East Boutique sitewide by using the code “mosthappy10.” This excludes sale items, and for the time being, Back East Boutique is only shipping within the United States!

    That sweater is adorable. Love me some fringe!! Yes, I’m old enough to remember hippies too! I couldn’t pull it off with the belt but certainly could without. Would look cute with a cropped jacket in the fall too!
