As the weather is quickly transitioning into Fall, I am really not wanting to give up on showing some skin. My least favorite part about colder weather are the many layers required to keep warm, and not being able to show any part of my skin for fear of freezing. If you live in a place with warm weather then I am very jealous, and you can completely disregard this small rant.
I recently popped into Zara to find items for my Fall wardrobe. I saw a mix of two very distinct styles in store: 90’s metallic, and 70’s inspiration with the earth colors and textured materials à la suede, leather, fringe, etc. I did come away with this adorable green leather mini skirt, which I think will be perfect to carry me through Fall’s dropping temperatures. It also fits my current obsession with a nod to 70’s chic.
In my eyes you can never have enough striped tees. Who else is with me?! It is one of those wardrobe essentials that I am pretty sure I will always own. It was a bit colder this day, and it got me to think of transitional pieces as it is now that time of year where it is almost fall, but not quite there. A striped top is a great transitional piece between any season. It all depends on the what you pair it with.
I have always felt that I was born in the wrong era, and I have had this feeling from a young age. I was fascinated by my father’s teenage records he has somehow managed to keep, and watched many of the TV shows my parent’s grew up on. I yearned to live in the years where my parents were teenagers in what I consider to be the best decade in music history, and really a cool time in fashion – the 1970’s.
This crisp embroidered blouse gives that nod to those casual 70’s vibes that I am loving, and has also recently come back into fashion. As they say, fashion relates itself. See how I style this embroidered blouse and keep it modern for a my favorite everyday summertime look.
If you have been living under a rock then I am sure you have no idea how big the off the shoulder trend has been this summer – sarcasm, of course. Like every fashion obsessed girl I have fallen in love with this trend, and can’t seem to get enough. If you’ve had a look at my Pinterest lately then you have probably noticed my obsession.
Off the shoulder is a perfect way to keep cool during the hot summer weather, and is coquettishly sexy by showing bare shoulders. When I wear this trend, I like to keep my earrings and necklaces minimal to keep the focus on my shoulders.
This is one of my favorite pieces I have picked up this summer as it combines my two favorite trends of the moment: gingham and off the shoulder. See how I style this ultimate summer look, and shop some similar items so you can recreate this outfit too.
