Summer-to-Fall Style: Lace-up Flats

As much as I love summer, I honestly cannot wait for fall. Partly because I love all fall fashion, and partly because The Atelier Fall/Winter collection this year is so good. Aside from our upcoming collection, one of the things at the very top of my fall wishlist this year is a pair of lace-up ballet flats (see this illustration, coming soon!). I love the edge that the ankle wrap laces give an otherwise classic pair of shoes, and I'm thrilled that I've recently been seeing them at just about every price point. In the market for these beauties too? Shop my top picks below!

The Shirtdress

My love for the shirtdress is nothing new. I've picked up quite a few over the years and have worn each of them more times that I can count (hello, amazing cost-per-wear)! I love that they have a tailored, boy-meets-girl look, that they can be worn in any season, and most of all, how effortlessly stylish they are. When I came across this shot of the always fabulous Olivia Palermo, I knew I had to put together a round-up of a few of my favorites. I mean, how cool does she look?!
