It’s almost time to start flaunting fall outfits, which means it’s time for new trends. If you are a real shoe maniac, you definitely need to know the latest news in the footwear department. Get a look into these super-cool designs that guarantee you a fashionable finish to an outfit.
Summer is on it’s way out soon and fall is going to start making an appearance. How do you balance the lingering heat with fall style? Simple, just stay neutral. Neutral colors such as beige, nude, taupe, camel, and even gold, are colors that just about anyone can wear and also appropriate for just about any season, but especially the fall months. I wore this linen-blend two piece set with taupe stripes while roaming around the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica Recently. Having lunch, coffee, shopping, and it got so many compliments. I paired it with my new Chloe bag that I had been eyeing for some time, and some super comfy platform heels. I have actually never worn this color much in the past, but during my hunt for more pieces, I found some cool ones that you can shop as well to keep your summer to fall style transition seamless.
Planning a last minute tropical getaway before summer’s end? Not sure what to pack? Allow me to help. I am planning an end of summer trip to Mexico, and naturally I am planning out my wardrobe for the trip, starting with my resort wear. So, I figure why not make a few wardrobe recommendations for you also. A coverup, caftan, or sarong just does not cut it when hanging around luxe resort towns. You’re going to want something with a bit more “snazz” for the oceanside dinners at sunset, and post dinner margaritas and dancing. Straw hats have made quite the appearance this summer, and are a must for any tropical environment. Why not protect your skin while looking stylish? Pair that up with the equally popular polka dot or floral print wrap or sarong style skirt, and statement blouse- preferably off the shoulder, and you are ready to enjoy the vacation perks of the resort life!
I am such a sucker for lamé. I have sound myself spending hours at a time on Etsy browsing through page after page of vintage pieces to find the perfect ones. Some of the best pieces are vintage, and if you’re in luck, they are still in good shape. Luckily, it has been a more popular sight in the modern fashion world and Missoni has put out some pretty lust-worthy pieces. I took my selected Missoni knit lamé skirt and went the 70’s route (duh), pairing it with a metallic, dramatic, bell sleeved bodysuit, metallic fuchsia boots, and some oversized round sunnies. You can create this look for yourself with the same pieces, and of course some variations. Shop below!
With all the fun things that summer brings, who has time to think about what to wear or how to wear it? On my busier days I depend on the effortless 2 piece outfits. I can grab one, throw it on, and not have to put any thought into how to pair it. Bonus is, most of them are also pretty comfy. Below are some of my favorites that you can utilize for a multitude of occasions .
I never saw myself as the camel colored button down blouse and linen skirt kinda girl, but every now and again you have to step outside your comfort zone. I tried on this outfit and was pleasantly surprised. This summer look was easy to throw together, and also easy to find similar looks to match different vibes. Check out my look plus a couple of others below and click to shop this outfit of the week.
Jumpsuits are pretty much a good idea any time of the year. It literally takes half of the effort out of putting together an outfit, and when you are pinched for time, or just don’t want to put too much thought into what to wear, a jumpsuit can be a fashion hero. Another bonus is that most of them are pretty comfy and you can dress them up down, or whichever way you are feeling. I have a section of my closet dedicated to jumpsuits, I have super comfy and casual ones, super dressy ones, and then some that are somewhere in between. This look is focusing in on jumpsuits that are flooding the instagram pages of fashion bloggers. Summer friendly ones that have all the cuteness.
Who doesn’t love a good vintage skirt, and a rainbow striped one at that? I purchased this skirt on Etsy last year and really could not wrap my head around how anyone would let it go! I have waited for the right time to wear it and I feel considering it’s pride month, now is the perfect time. If you plan on attending any of the festivities this month, check out these pieces I have found below that will have you very appropriately outfitted for the occasion.
