Friends, if you invest in one thing this fashion season, make it a military jacket.
There is SO many things you can do with this versatile piece! Today I styled mine over a basic fit and flare dress (and the coolest kicks maybe ever!) I love this jacket with a tulle skirt (yup!), black skinnies, over a maxi dress you rocked over the summer, or even over a blouse and pencil skirt combo for a business casual work look! See what I mean now? VERSATILITY!
The accessories in this look were so fun. I love the sneakers-with-dresses look and these shoes remind me of soccer cleats a little but I LOVE THEM! I also have the all white version (see previous post) and I’m obsessed! So happy the Superstar’s made a comeback! This olive fringe bag was on major clearance at Target a few weeks ago, and I couldn’t resist. And chokers are EVERYWHERE this fall, except at my house. This is actually a headband! Haha! Work with what ya got, right?
I love the nineties looks that are so in for fall, and this one channels that vibe perfectly. I added a nude matte lip (and resting bitch face..haha!) with straight hair to complete this fall look.
Let me know what you think of this look in the comments below!
It’s mid-August and I’m already REALLY excited for fall fashion. It’s my favorite fashion season by far, and if you follow me on instagram, you’ll see that I’ve already done some major damage where cooler weather fashion is concerned. So what if it’s still 100 degrees in Florida?!
This ombre top from American Eagle checks off a lot of trendy boxes:
-muscle tank fit
This top would be great under a long cardigan or a military jacket, too!..once the weather cooperates, of course. For now it’s great on its own. I paired mine with these merlot skinny jeans, also from American Eagle. They are part of their “sateen” line and seriously feel like pajamas! They also promise not to “bag out” as some jeggings do. They come in a rainbow of rich fall shades..I can’t wait to get more!
These brown faux suede lace ups have been on repeat all summer and fall looks to be no different. Same with my bucket bag. It literally fits everything! Oh and we NEED to discuss this lip. It’s Stila liquid lipstick in ‘patina’! I’ve heard it’s tough to find but I’m here to tell you it’s WORTH IT. So good. And it lasts a long time!
All the details of this moody transition-into-fall outfit is under the “shop my looks” tab at the top of this page!
Have you checked the trends for fall? I want to know your favorite!
Until next time!
My look: tee, Adidas (sold out); shoes, Adidas (current); pants Zella (current); jacket Express (current)
This outfit started yesterday when I was scouring Nordstrom for the last time during their Anniversary Sale. I’d been eyeing the all-white Adidas Superstar’s since the pre-sale, but hadn’t pulled the trigger in time and they were consistently sold out in my size since. I asked to try on the black & white version (the all white wasn’t even on display anymore), when the salesman came out with a few boxes and said they were sold out of the black/white in my size, “but they did have…these”. “THESE” were the all white version!! It was fashion kismet, and like Cinderella they slipped onto my feet as if they were made for them, and the rest is fashion history.
Ok, it’s dramatic. But we’ve all had moments like those. And I’ll do anything to include Cinderella into a post!
I’ve had this Adidas graphic tee for a few months now. It’s gotta be one of my favorite purchases ever. It was limited edition (also from Nordstrom) which feels special, but I love the color and floral pattern so much. It’s just one of those fun pieces that gets a conversation going wherever you wear it.
These leggings are from the Nordstrom sale as well. They’re no longer available in navy but I linked to similar black ones. They’re still on sale until the end of the day! (Sunday 8/7!)
I am a BIG fan of the athleisure movement. The key to achieving this look without looking like you are wearing pajamas/should be at the gym is mixing athletic pieces with staple wardrobe pieces, like my cropped denim jacket: without it, this outfit is decidedly too casual and doesn’t really work. The definition of athleisure really is a mixture of athletic pieces with fashion that combine to be a leisurely fashion look that’s anything but relaxed. Another great athleisure look is combining a chunky sweater with pants like mine and strappy heels..if you dare;)
