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.
One trend lately that I cannot get enough of is fur shoes! I never thought I would say that, and I feel like it is one of those things you either absolutely love or it makes you want to vomit. I think there is something so chic but playful about this look.
Especially, when it is paired with a more sophisticated look, and the fun shoe can add a different element to take your look up a notch. I am on the hunt for a pair where the fur looks like it is good quality, and not the Frederick’s of Hollywood fur slipper kind of look. Though, I did try to buy those when I was young and my mother told me I was silly.
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.
This top has a nod to the 1970’s, which came back in fashion this summer season, and seems like it will only become more popular into fall. When fashions come back in style, I think it’s important to incorporate modern pieces into your look. You don’t want to look like you stepped out of time machine…unless it’s a costume party.
Never in a million years did I think I would be acknowledging this, and much less writing about it on the internet for a potential unlimited amount of people to see. So what am I talking about? Phobias. Anxiety. Panic Attacks. I am hoping writing about this will in a way be therapeutic for myself, but may also be exactly what someone else needed to hear who is dealing with the same thing.
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). But, like every fashion obsessed girl I have fallen in love with this trend from shirts to dresses. If you have a look at my Pinterest you can see 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 show off my shoulders, if I wear any at all.
This is one of my favorite off the shoulder pieces I have picked up this summer as it combines my other favorite trend, gingham. Never enough gingham! FYI my boyfriend calls this my sexy pirate top, but apparently that is a compliment.
I thought I would share a few pictures of my weekend in the Alps with my boyfriend’s family. We stayed at Hotel National in Champéry, which is quickly becoming a tradition now. Every room has amazing views of the mountains, and the quaint spa is just perfect. I really recommend it to anyone interested in visiting a typical Swiss village in the alps.
I may consider myself a handbag junkie, and spend the majority of my money on this accessory. However, what girl can resist a gorgeous and quality shoe. Much like a great handbag, shoes can elevate your look from something simple to something wow.
I wanted to share with you my recent obsession with Aquazzura shoes. Everyone from celebrities to bloggers alike are rocking this brand’s shoes. I have to say that Aquazzura just seems to get the design right everytime. They know how to offer a modern and creative twist on a classic shoe, which is exactly my style. It makes “high fashion” wearable for the everyday woman.
