Soon the weather will be cooling off and I know that it’s just around then that I’ll be getting my first “winter’s on its way cold”. Luckily, this year maybe a hat trend will keep my head warm and me cold free! The 70s style floppy hat is a great way to apply the 70s trend this fall without going all out hippie! What’s so great about the floppy hat, besides that it is adorable, is that it’s a cheap and easy way to update your look. I usually don’t love how I look in hats but the other day I walked into H&M and tried one on and it was so darn cute! I love the floppy ease of this hat and there are so many fun colors to choose from. I personally love the plum and burnt orange tones for fall!
Leather exudes toughness!
In its natural tones of brown, burgundy, black and tan a leather dress generates a raw natural feel.
Leather dresses are the new twist on the LBD (little black dress). It’s curve hugging sexy vibe makes the LLD (little leather dress) a modern girl’s go to dress. Wear a leather dress between seasons as is with cute open toe sandals and a clutch. In colder weather add layers to stay warm. Wear over the dress a chunky cardigan with some great tights.
For the fearless chick, wear your hair sleeked back & shiny! Your beautiful facial features stand out even more.
Here is an adorable gingham shirt that I’m craving from Anthropologie. It also comes in grey but in my opinion the green is so cheery and refreshing. What’s great about this shirt is that it transitions so well from summer to fall.
In the summer this shirt would look great with summer whites & brights.
In the fall this shirt would look great with autumnal tones and leathers.
I love door photography! There is something so interesting about the fascades and entrances to buildings. The two photos below I found particularly striking and inspired my outfits for this season as well as next season.
shoes: Topshop, fedora: Wetseal, messenger bag: Mulberry Alexa Bag, shorts: AG Jeans, watch: Marc Jacobs.
necklace: Anthropologie, hat: ASOS, jacket: Michael Kors, boots: heart and soul (found on Piperlime), skirt: YSL
Which look are you feeling more?
Polka dots are back!! This 50’s – 60’s print is being reinterpreted and has taken a modern twist. Yesterday I walked into one of my favorite stores, Zara, and was wowed by the way they incorporated polka dots into their fall collection. From vibrant colored blazers to shoes, trousers, and blouses, polka dots can easily be incorporated into anyone’s fall wardrobe. In my opinion they are a must have this season!
Here are a few of my favorite dotty looks from Zara:
Here it is, my first entry as a new blogger! Growing up as a kid I was a major tom-boy and all I wanted to do was dress in my younger brother’s clothes. I would get up in the morning before school and choose a baseball tee out of his drawer. Today, it’s a different story. Waking up in the morning presents the exciting question of “What to wear?” I love fashion and am always being inspired by what I see. Everywhere I go I pay attention to what people are wearing, how their hair is done, what colors flatter and which don’t. Fashion is on my mind 24/7. So with my new passion and ideas, I thought to share with you and see where it takes me!
I decided to write my first entry about something that all of us love and need…JEANS! Jeans are an essential staple in a girl’s wardrobe! However, fit, wash, and length are so crucial to get right (and so many do not). The best way to find the perfect jean is try on a ton!!! Make sure the fit is appropriate to your body shape. Finally, a dark wash is always more slimming than a light one.
Here’s a quick look back at our nations history with denim.
This fall skinnies are moving aside and making way for 70’s inspired flares and wide-leg cuts! Flares are versatile and tailored, not to mention a hell of a lot more comfortable than those skin-tight skinny jeans.
Here are some familiar faces that have been strutting around in flared denim.But my hat goes off to Jayma Mays who got her flared denim spot on!!! This girl looks so effortless and chic. Her legs for on for miles due to the high rise waist and the bottom length which just skims shy of the ground.
