In my early days of working in fashion and retail, my team and I had this “thing” with camouflage. It was out there but not exactly trending. We loved it, so we created “Camo Tuesdays”. I’m pretty excited that camo is trending again this Fall. I don’t hunt and have no military affiliation but for some reason I really like pops of camo pieces in my wardrobe – including this faux leather camo skirt.
As the temps start on their steady decline, I can’t help but think about all the cozy fall sweaters I can snuggle up in. Yesterday I talked about a guide for fall sweaters. So, in case you love crazy awesome trendy and snuggly sweaters like me, I’ve linked several of my favorite fall sweaters and they are all under $40!
Rise and shine y’all. Can you believe it’s already Thursday? I know we all live for the weekends but I really try not to wish my days away and truly enjoy them – even if they go by the name of Mondayyy. This week went by extra fast for me since I took a #personalday Tuesday. You may have seen some of what I was up to on my insta stories but today I’m sharing my extra casual, weekend style, off duty look.
Mornin’ y’all. With the swift change in temps I jumped at the opportunity to break out a few transitional fall pieces – including but not limited to this pleated skirt. If you don’t have one already, I highly recommend getting a leather (or faux depending on ethics and budget) skirt. It is a warmer style and looks great with OTK boots, flats, sneaks, loafers or heels.
I just love the hot – cold balance of an outfit. I think I pretty much lived in the same outfit formula all weekend. It seems I just cannot help myself. It’s such an easy formula to follow: long sleeve shirt (I typically gravitate toward button downs), shorts, shoes and done! Today I swapped out my button downs for this printed ruffled number and transitional fall shorts. The top is a super light weight material and is easy to dress up or down with shorts, jeans or black pants for the office. The flared sleeves are subtle and noticeable yet don’t drive me nuts during the day. They also give me a hint of that cool 70’s vibe. The shorts are pretty awesome too! They were my first Marc Jacobs purchase and I got them for a total steal two years ago.They are super high waist and have a tie belt. They are a little thicker and warm for the hot summer days, but perfect for transitioning into fall. I linked some similar ones below to help you recreate the look. After being smoldering hot for two days straight I can say I’m ready for a little break in the weather. I also find myself gravitating towards team colored things (hellooooo football season!) which must mean I’m heading toward that fall state of mind earlier than I expected.
Speaking of football season, I have gotten several orders lately for team colored necklaces. (If you didn’t already know, I have been designing and making jewelry for over 10 years and have several pieces posted in the shop page. Most pieces are custom made upon request but many are listed ready to ship if you are interested!) Anyways, team colored necklaces and football fever have got me in the mood for a giveaway! There are simply toooo many colleges to choose from so in the next few weeks, I’ll be designing a Carolina Panthers necklace to giveaway to one lucky follower. What do y’all think? Sound like a good way to kick off the season?! 🙂
Which teams are you pulling for?! Let me know in the comments below!
