I'm sure you're often in a rush to head out the door in the mornings. On those fall mornings when you simply just don't know what to wear that'll look stylish yet feel comfortable at all times of the day when the weather changes, this is the outfit formula you need to follow.
For the past few seasons, statement tops have been trending pretty hard. Be it full on prints, balloon sleeves or ruffles; tops with details have been helping those most of us on a crunch for time head out the door looking stylish with less fuss. What I love about them is that you can choose to enhance the details in creating a more elevated, fashion-forward look by implementing various textures and details in the your other pieces or allow for the top to do all the work by styling it with a pair of basic denim or pants.
I hope you all had a great weekend! The weather has been slowly starting to dip. It's been getting a little breezy and I'm going to be honest, I'm pretty excited about it. It allows for me to break out one of my favorite materials for fall, leather! Today is, surprisingly, the first time I've ever paired a button up shirt with a pair of leather pants and a silk one at that.
How was everyone's week? I hope it was good and if it wasn't...it's FRIDAY! That makes it better ;) This week, we're talking all things fall. I know many of us may not be ready for it, but it's definitely on the horizon. I've mentioned in other posts that since having my babies, I've been a lover of summer. Not only were the both born in the summer, it's just much more fun to do things with them outdoors.
On Monday, we talked about the leopard print trend for fall. Today, we're talking about moody florals. Simply put, florals patterns with a darker background. Florals are typically synonymous with spring fashion, so we don't typically think of wearing them come fall. When they're in darker colors, however, they seem more seasonally appropriate and when you add a dark lip, the whole look is truly transformed into a perfect fall vibe. I'd suggest you wear your moody florals with leather and darker denim (including black) to enhance the effect, while adding some edgy tones.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We had some family over on Saturday to celebrate Eddie's birthday, which was really fun. He had such a great time seeing his sisters and brother-in-law and Aviah had a blast playing with her big cousin. Other than that, it was pretty relaxed. I dressed pretty casual because we celebrated at home and well...two babies, so I needed to be practical. But, if we were going out to celebrate, I most likely would've worn this outfit.
I hope you all had a great weekend. I recently purged my closet of some old shoes that I either no longer wore or just simply needed to replace because I wore them that much and they were beyond repair. As you would guess, with that comes the need (more like want) to replace all of them for similar or perhaps better options. While searching various sites, I can't help but be drawn to Jeffrey Campbell. I own one pair of his shoes; a pair of plaid boots I purchased last year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. They weren't apart of the sale, but I came across them while shopping and had to have them.
Though this weather has been rather wacky, believe it or not, summer is right around the corner. So, I thought it would be the perfect time to share some of my personal summer essentials. These are all pieces I find myself reaching for all season long because they're not only stylish, most importantly, they're practical for being comfortable in the heat. To shop each piece in the set, simply hover over and you'll see a little black box appear. Click on it and it'll take you over to the item to shop....
I hope you all had a great weekend! We had a wonderful time at the park Saturday and Sunday. The weather was absolutely beautiful, so it was packed with kids and Aviah was loving it! You guys, it's amazing how much growth and development happens in a year. If you saw the post I shared on Stories last week, you saw how big she's getting and I just can't handle lit. She's a little social butterfly and when she's at the park and sees a lot of little ones her age, she pushes my hands away and wants to go do her own thing. Like, what? Lol! To think that this time next year I'll be bringing two little ones to the park is just mind blowing to me.
I've been wanting to wear these pants since I purchased them a few months ago. I had mentioned that I did a bit of maternity shopping at ASOS a while back and this is one of the pieces I got and it's still on sale! It also comes in a non-maternity version. I typically stay away from large floral designs, but it seems as though when I'm pregnant I tend to gravitate towards them for whatever reason. I do pay mind to the other elements in my outfit when styling them though because as I've mentioned in previous posts, the larger pattern can make one appear larger and when you're pregnant, that's not something you want to do, trust me...you're gaining enough weight in a short amount of time as it is, haha.
