Alala Patchwork Tight and Eclipse Bra

“As much as I adore Outdoor Voices, it can feel like everyone is wearing those Springs leggings—you know the ones. For a change of pace, I’m adding this color-blocked workout set from Alala to my wardrobe. It’s just as sleek and stylish, but not quite as overdone.”

May Lindstrom The Problem Solver Mask

“Summer can be hard on skin, so this month I’m showing mine a little extra love with The Problem Solver mask by May Lindstrom. I am seriously impressed with the scent, the mousse-like texture, the high-quality ingredients, and most of all, the results. I really look forward to the ritual of mixing the mask, applying it with the treatment brush, and taking 30 minutes or so to slow down, relax, and enjoy the experience.”

“Summer isn’t over yet, Jetsetters, and I plan on wearing this Veronica Beard dress well into the month. I love the ruched floral pattern, and it shows just the right amount of leg.”

Taft The Rome Boot in Oxblood

“September means it’s boot season again! I’m finally picking up this pair from Taft I’ve been eyeing for a while. They’re perfect for when I have to dress up, but they can also be thrown on with a pair of rolled-up jeans. Plus, they're handmade in Spain using the finest materials, so they will last for years to come. At $275 a pair, I might even splurge and get a second color.”

LPA Thea Sweater

“It’s still hot out, so I feel a bit weird looking for sweaters. But I spotted this sweet little one and it’s a perfect transitional piece. It'll go with anything, but I’ll probably wear it with jeans and do a half tuck.”

— Saman Westberg, Style Correspondent

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Gentle Fluidity Gold Eau de Parfum

“I love buying a new fragrance when the seasons change—I have a dozen half-full bottles of perfume that remind me of different seasons of my life. I recently discovered Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris Gentle Fluidity Gold. It’s light, musky, lingeringly sweet, and warm like a cozy fall sweater.”

French Connection Baudet Print Fit & Flare Dress

“It may still be summer, but fall is on my mind. I just purchased a beautiful French Connection fit-and-flare dress that'll be perfect for my North Carolina Thanksgiving travel plans. I’ll be pairing it with this edgy pair of TOPSHOP wide-buckle strappy pointed flats.”

Wayfair Williston Forge Alcala Etagere Bookcase

“I’ve been working on making my new apartment look somewhat livable ever since I moved in June, and next up is a bookcase. I’m loving this open-ended design, which has plenty of room for picture frames and other décor. Although I may need some bookends for my softcovers, this looks like a totally unique option to put in my living room.”

— Tyler Schoeber, Production Specialist
