End of the Summer Blues

IMG_0778

Last night when I was planning my outfit I noticed I had forgotten to wear my new Lilly Pulitzer capris since buying them from the August sale! These pants are so comfy and have a nice stretch to them, they also have a double button closure when makes them have a very smooth waist band.

I decided to pair them with just a slouchy white soft cotton tank for a more relaxed look as well as adding my black patent leather Tory Burch Sandals (click here for link).

As you can see I changed my bag around (the life of an indecisive person). I couldn’t decide if it was too much blue with my suede navy tote, but in the end I just stuck with it because I love the bag for work!

The capris are sold out on Lilly’s website because of the sale but I found a pair on Ebay here. My navy tote is Topshop – Click here. The tan and navy tote I purchased quite a while ago from Marshall’s – but click here for a similar one. And the slouchy white tank is from Banana Republic – Click here. My Rayban aviator sunglasses are available on their website – click here.

I also wore navy earrings to tie the whole blue theme in again 🙂

All About Fringe

FRINGE, FRINGE, FRINGE!

BB DAKOTA Faux Suede Fringe Skirt // The Perfect April Jacket // Forever 21 Draped Fringe Layer Top //Windsor – Natural Pop and Fringe Dolman Sweater // Topshop – Floral Print Fringe Kimono

I normally don’t go for all the trends, some of them are just too over the top or really don’t fit my personal style but I’ve been seeing fringe everywhere this summer and in new fall clothing and I can’t resist! There are definitely some fringe looks that are a little crazy but some of them are just too cute to pass up. The skirt is probably my favorite, the one above is from Bloomingdales but Forever 21 carries one thats almost identical and way cheaper, so you can rock this trend on any budget! I’m loving the cowl neck fringe shirt, I have it in white and the sweater is a great cozy look to incorporate the trend as well. I also picked up a kimono just like this one and I’m obsessed.

Accesories

Sam Edelman Louie Bootie // Mini Leather Tassel Strand

Fringe is big in accessories too and in a more muted way making it easy to add into your style without going overboard. These Sam Edelman booties have been a bestseller for a few years now and I’m definitely planning on picking them up for fall. The fringe Baublebar necklace comes in lots of colors and I love that the tassels are leather!

Whether its around your neck or draped from your skirt, fringe is a chic, boho trend that needs to be added to every fall fashionista’s wardrobe!

Holy Heat Wave!

dresses

I don’t know about you but I went outside this morning and was hit with a whopping amount of humidity and 80 degree temperatures at 8 am…not my kind of weather. When I dress for work I normally dress for my super air-conditioned office. But this week its going to be loose, airy dresses all day every day. Here are some super cute – summer inspired dresses that are sure to keep you cool and still get that last bit of summer style in!

Don’t forget to check out the Lilly Pulitzer sale that’s August 17th and 18th – you can get most items half off!

Happy Reading!

Monday Blues

Monday Blues
I went for a slightly nautical theme this Monday getting my inspiration from my weekend spent on Martha’s Vineyard! I love love love this Chloe bag with two blue tones and the nude buxom lipstick is my go-to everyday color, its super creamy and long-lasting. I added my gold collar necklace (Wayyyy cheaper alternatives sold at Forever 21) and then some cute rings to match! Then threw on my trusted white jeans with black mules (Mules have become my new obsession).

Tuesday Vibes

Tuesday Vibes

Tuesdays are always kind of a blah day, so I personally like to keep it comfortable and casual. I popped on my favorite white textured shirt…i’m obsessed with white clothing…and then some comfortable stretch jeans from 7 For All Man Kind. For accessories I stuck to my everyday favorites, the necklace I wear is identical but from baublebar,com and threw on my gold watch. I find that these pieces add a little something extra without drawing too much attention. Lastly, I slipped on my favorite Tory Burch sandals that I wear WAY too much and headed out the door.

For makeup, I decided to add a little bit of color because my outfit was so muted. I gravitated towards the rose gold tones in my Naked 3 palette and topped that off with a little cat flick liner.

My favorite jeans are American Eagle jeggings and 7 For All Man Kind skinnies, what are you favorite jeans?
