Fabulous Fall Fashion

Happy Friday All!

I haven't always appreciated the four seasons where I live. When I was younger all I cared about was the warm weather and swore I'd move one day. Well thank goodness I didn't. The older I got the more I came to appreciate and love snowstorms and of course all things Fall. One thing I've always, always loved was Fall Fashion. Every August I do a post about the things I'm just loving for the fall/winter season. So here they are. I hope you enjoy!

1. Animal Print

You've seen this one on my Insta. Even though this is a trend that I wear if it's "in" or not, I'm LOVING seeing it everywhere even more. Mostly in coats but add any animal print to your look this fall and you'll be so on point.  

2. Capes

3. The high waist and MOM JEANS

I'll just be here prancing in the vineyards feeling like a superhero. But seriously this is easily my favorite trend this year.  Again though, this is one I rock all the time no matter if it's a trend or not. From Christian Dior to Fendi, capes were all over the runways. I love a cape outfit for many reasons but first, it's a great silhouette and second it's such a chic, luxe look without being stuffy (in my opinion). A cape really speaks to my style. 

I talked about this in one of my Instagram posts. I'm obsessed with the high waist! And Mom jeans? YESSSS! Remember in the 00's when jeans were so low rise thongs would hang out? I'm looking at you Paris. Hey, I'm not saying that I wasn't one of those low rise lovers but let me tell you no more. The Mom Jean coming back is pretty perfect timing for me.

4. Yellow!

I've always been a fan of a dressed up, dressed down look. This fab tee from Missguided quickly became a favorite of mine. It paired super well with this long yellow skirt (also Missguided). The great thing about this one is that this color was on trend for summer so anything that you got for summer will translate perfectly for fall. Budget friendly! Just add a shaggy sweater to this look and you're ready for cooler weather. 

5. Camo

"I saw Candy Heron wearing army pants and flip flops, so I bought army pants and flip flops." I so fondly recall the time (about ten years ago) when this trend was very real. Well now camo is back. This time around is a little more sleek. I paired mine with a bodysuit and vest. Play with some mixed patterns here like leopard. 

6. Herringbone and Plaid

These are two great prints to pull into your fall wardrobe this year. I have a great Plaid jumpsuit that I can't wait to wear! Print mixing is also very on trend this year so these are two awesome prints to play with as far as it comes to mixing your patterns. 

7. Ruching

Not only does this trend elongate your frame but it's also SO flattering on any body type. The ruching on the side of a form fitting dress or skirt is very forgiving (thank goodness). Side note: Mom Bod is so hard you guys. Uh. 

8. Fur Accents

9.Tulle

Of course fur is in this season but it's all about a colored fur accent. Add this to pretty much any look for a little bit of glam and oomph! By far this is always one of my favorites for the colder season. If you're struggling with an outfit cause you're too tired or maybe cold? My go-to is all black with a colored fur. Thigh high boots, a skinny black pant, and a basic long sleeve black tee. Finish it with a top knot and you are good to go!


Few things are more girly tulle. I for one am loving this trend! The Western trend? Not so much. That one just isn't for me. But twirling in tulle! Yes please!!

 

I hope you enjoyed my Fall Favs! Have a great and stylish weekend!

Fancy Florals

It's no secret that spring and florals go hand and hand. Anyone thinking Miranda Priestly again? Anyway, groundbreaking or not I love a good floral print and this one does not disappoint! It truly does make you want to twirl.  

This week has felt like the longest week ever! Busy and long are never a good combination but it's a holiday weekend and I for one am so ready! Keeping this post short and sweet. You have to check out Everly Oak's spring collection. It's so girly and fun.  

One thing I wanted to touch on today is your signatures. Mine are the ever-so-classic Jackie O sunnies, huge pearls and red lips. Find yours and stick to them. Even if you aren't feeling your outfit your signatures can save the day!

Your Own Style

I have a birthday coming up in May and it's made me start thinking about style. I've been asked a lot to define my style and often times found myself a little stumped. But I dove into the huge word "style" and have made a quick how-to guide in finding your own personal style.  Also I'm sharing some fabulous pieces from Tobi (http://www.tobi.com) that are so "my style". Let's get started.

1. Purge! This is one I find so hard! But if you haven't worn a piece in a year GET RID OF IT! There were a lot of things I felt like I was holding on to for no reason. Plus it makes room for new things right?

2. Try everything on- Seriously. Everything. Make a day of it, open some champagne that always helps. You'll know exactly what gets the cut when you try it on and say what was I thinking?!

3. Find your inspiration /muse- I have a couple. Victoria Beckham, Olivia Palermo, SJP. I've admired their style for years. It's always good to have someone to get inspiration from.

4. Versatility. It's great to have those couple favorites that are just wow but for the most part when investing in good pieces make sure you can wear it different ways and with lots of different things. This mesh bodysuit is amazing because the possibilities are endless. So many ways to waer this one.

 5. Choose three words you gravitate towards. For me glam, edgy, feminine. This "little green dress" embodies all of these. Especially when paired with some very fun accessories. 

6. Take photos of outfits your love, for us fashion bloggers thats easy but if you aren't this is an important step. I feel like sometimes I will put an outfit together and take a photo and then I'm like "well I guess it's time to start over".

7. Make a list of this things in your closet that you love or are drawn to. I love black, plunging necklines, and body suits! This fabulous Tobi piece is all three. 

8. My final tip. If you like it wear it! If it screams your name own it. Don't ever anyone tell you what you like isn't "in". For me, feathers! 

I hope you have a very stylish week ahead of you! Monday's can suck so head for that second cup of coffee!
