I have to admit, I never used to be into snakeskin. The only animal print I've ever really worn or gravitate towards was leopard print and maybe an occasional zebra. Since snakeskin is trending pretty hard this season, I've really opened up to it. I especially love those in a grey, brown, and red color palette. The latter being a bit more sexy and great for a bold, night out statement.
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.
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.
I'm sharing a perfect summer night out look to help give you some inspiraton for this upcoming weekend if you happen to have any plans. If not, you can always pin and save the post for when you do!
What I love about this pairing is that it's a great balance between luxe and playful. The lace and satin give it that more luxe feeling and, of course, the lemon printed shorts give the playful vibes. I love wearing fun, fruit printed pieces during the summer months because well, it's really the only time you can wear them and they add a little bit of personality to your seasonal look. I played up the black polka dots in the shorts by selecting a black cami, but if you're feeling a bit more adventurous and want to enhance the playfulness, you can wear a bold color instead.
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....
How's your week going so far? I hope it's been going good!
You all know how much I love color and experimenting with unique color combinations, but I do have a profound love for neutrals. They're so easy, yet chic—not trying to sound cliché here. An all black look is hands down my favorite neutral to wear head-to-toe, but when it comes to mixing them together, there's something to be said about black and shades of beige or even taupe. I think they create a cozy mood to a look, even if the pieces themselves are elegant or dressy. This makes them perfect for wearing this time of year. Isn't it amazing how specific colors can evoke a particular mood? That never ceases to amaze me. It really does contribute more to the style process than we often realize.
I hope you all had a great weekend! As you all know, I'm a huge lover of all things bold in color and pattern. When it comes to a specific piece, it can really do all the talking for you, allowing you to go pretty simple or basic everywhere else. In recent years, sweaters have become more exciting.
First, thank you for all of your support and encouragement in Friday's post both here on the blog and Instagram! This community is honestly amazing and I'm thankful to have such amazing friends in all of you!
Now onto today's discussion!
Pantone recently announced the color for 2019 and it's a color that looks good on everyone and pairs well with all metals, coral (read why it was selected here). I've talked about this orange-red hue in the past, boasting how flattering it is. It not only looks good against all skin tones and hair colors, but it also has the ability to add a fresh, luminous look to the skin, which couldn't be more appreciated during the dead of winter. Am I right?
