Falling Forward

Carrie Lyman, Look at the World Around You on Instagram

Happy Labor Day! Hope you are all relaxing on your long weekend. As everyone breaks out their white outfits and summer sundresses for the last time until next spring it’s a great time to look forward in anticipation of Fall. I am excited for Fall boots and jackets, Thanksgiving with my family and moving to a new apartment in a new part of the city!

What are you guys looking forward to this Fall?

Another summer outfit before Labor Day passes and we all transition to our Fall closets! This is one of my all-time favorite looks and a go-to when I want to make a statement with a pop of neon. I am definitely going to miss the ease of perfect dresses sans jackets and sweaters come Fall.

What are you guys going to miss most about your Summer wardrobes?

Hi guys! Just wanted to post a few photos from my day at the Saratoga race track this past weekend. It’s a great way to spend the day if you are upstate. You can bring your own food, drink and chairs and set up a picnic on the back lawn, watch the horses prep for their race in the paddock and then watch the races trackside.

Cooperstown, NY is probably best known for the Baseball Hall of Fame but my favorite part of Cooperstown is Sunday Brunch at the Otesaga. Every Sunday in the summer you can have brunch buffet and then spend the afternoon sitting on the back porch rocking chairs overlooking Otsego Lake.

This was a perfect day in City Hall Park and a great day to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. I am loving jumpsuits, they’re so easy to wear and I love this one because of the open halter back!

Carrie Lyman, 6 perfect weekenders

5 perfect weekenders

Carrie Lyman, Longchamp weekender

1. LONGCHAMP LE PLIAGE EXPANDABLE TRAVEL DUFFLE TOTE – This bag is lightweight and it expands in case you go a little overboard on the shopping! 

Carrie Lyman, Orla Kiely Weekender for Anthropologie

2. ORLA KIELY LAMINATED FLOWER WEEKENDER – I always love a good print, luggage shouldn’t always have to be plain!

Carrie Lyman, L.L. Bean Canvas Tote

3. L.L.BEAN BOAT AND TOTE BAG – The L.L.Bean boat tote is an absolute staple item, you can customize your tote size, handle length, zip-top, color and have it monogrammed.

Carrie Lyman, Everlane weekender

4. EVERLANE THE TWILL WEEKENDER – I’ve always loved their brand and how simple they keep their designs.

Carrie Lyman, Bric's X-bag Weekender

5. BRIC’S X-BAG 22″ DUFFLE – Bric’s luggage is my favorite and I love this duffle because it folds down into a small pouch.
