Fall Trend du Jour // She’s A Lady

Yes…you read that right. Since it is now officially August, I thought it was time to change gears into fall trends, this way you can prep your wardrobe before the first leaf falls. I know I have definitely started!

So in honor of my recent handbag purchase I thought it would be a great idea to show a bunch of different ladylike style handbags that are going to be huge this fall. They are smart and sophisticated and come in some really amazing varieties in color and patterns. Check out my recent Kate Spade purchase (I got it from an outlet so you are going to have to shop similar styles here.)

My Current Obsession // My Delicate Layered Necklace

I am one that’s all for statement jewelry, especially bold statement necklaces. I truly feel that it is part of my signature look. However, I am currently so obsessed with the the delicate jewelry trend. I recently purchased this layered necklace from Charming Charlie’s and it’s absolutely beautiful. It adds the right amount of bling to a look but the lightness of the piece is perfect for summer time. Who wants a huge, heavy necklace sticking to their skin when it’s 90 degrees out? Not me.

Here are some of my favorite delicate layered pieces from Charming Charlie.

Summer Trend du Jour // Off the Shoulder Ruffles

Sometimes tanks and short sleeves don’t cut it in the summer because they just can be too fussy. The solution to that is wearing off the shoulder tops accompanied by ruffles. This is such an adorably flirty way to keep cool and look chic. There’s something so feminine about these ruffles and showing just a little bit of skin puts a little sexiness into it.

OOTD // Eye Of The Tiger

It’s a heat wave this week…and I hope you are all doing your best to stay cool. When it’s this hot out, I keep it simple by wearing a maxi dress. It’s nice and loose so it’s not sticking to my skin and there’s no fuss. This dress is casual but edgy, with a large tiger’s face on it, how can you not love it? I had to layer my kimono on though to help shield me from the strong rays, but it’s so light weight I hardly knew I was wearing it. Plus…it looks super cute! Finally, I chose some tribal-esque wedges that I got a few years ago from target. They’re super sky high and play off the whole wild feel.

Stay cool darlings…xoxo

OOTD // Aztec Prints

I like to take a break from skirts and dresses during the summer and wear light weight pants with prints. This time I chose my favorite aztec printed pants. I like the fact they are one of my neutral pants (lord knows I have very bright pairs) and even though summer is known for the brights, it’s sometimes nice to keep it neutral. I like to accent these pants with gold accessories, especially anything with spikes! Finally, I wore my hair it’s natural wave (which isn’t always my favorite thing to do) but it gives this look a little more casualness and a wild vibe.

Until next time…xoxo

Manicure Monday // Electric Coral

It’s been almost three weeks since my last manicure, and I hate to say that since then I had a relapse of biting my nails. It’s a nasty habit I’m trying to break so now my nails are back down to the nubs. But getting these gel manicures tend to help them grow and keep me from nibbling.

I had been getting pretty neutrals lately so I thought it was about time to do something kind of bright and bold. I chose this almost neon coral and I love it. The pictures actually don’t do them justice because they are pretty spectacular and they make whatever little tan I have pop. Having bright nails might distract people from seeing how short my nails are.

The #Nsale Continues

The best sale of the year is still going strong, so you know that I had to buy a few more pieces. It’s hard to buy things and not wear them right away (hello…I’m impatient!) but once the fall hits I’m going to be so excited that I stocked up on these goodies. And two of these items are currently sold out online…so things are going fast! If you haven’t shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale yet I would get on it! Your fall wardrobe will thank you!
