Spring Trend Report // ‘Seeing Red’

I LOVE a good red accessory! I am weird though (aren’t we all!?) because I RARELY will actually wear red clothing. I can’t even think of a red shirt that I own…they are that scarce in my closet! Not sure why because aren’t blondes supposed to look good in red?! Oh, I do have a cute little jumper from Zara that is red 😉

Anywho… I love red accessories and love that this orange-y red color is one of the major colors I am seeing everywhere this spring! I’ve compiled some of my FAVS out there right now…That JW Anderson bag (OMG!) and those perfect flats are both seriously on my list right now! Click the images above to shop or scroll through below!

Embroidered Denim Jacket

Now that the madness of fashion month has subsided all of the trends that we saw on the runway and the streets are starting to filter themselves into our wardrobes. One of the biggest trends I have been seeing pop up over the past few seasons is that of the embroidered denim jacket. So grunge-chic, don’t ya think? I kinda love it. Not everyone is going to be a fan of this style, because let’s be honest – it’s a little loud. I think in the right setting these jackets are so much fun! I am thinking weekends with my chucks, a pleated midi, and a great bag, yeah? I just ordered one I can’t wait to share with you guys but for now check out some of the ones that are on my list below!

Trending Now: Velvet

What do you guys think about the resurgence of the velvet trend for this fall/winter season? I feel like every where I look and everything I see is VELVET! Personally, velvet has always been a staple in my closet and something I love to style for fall. It can come off as super luxurious when done right. From runways to street style it is hard to miss the fact that velvet is trending hard right now!
Finding an item that looks expensive but doesn’t break the bank is always what I am looking for when shopping for anything velvet. A lot of the items this season seem to be on the pricier side but I’ve come up with a list of some of my favorites in a variation of price points!  Check out my picks below!

Trending Now: Blush Tones

fall-trends-blush-tones

 

Alright, so I know it’s fall and all. I am supposed to be into all the maroon, navy, and olive colors that are being seen everywhere I look. But no. For some reason the trend I am drawn to the most right now is BLUSH. Blush everything! Maybe I am a little late on the bandwagon? I mean, yeah, it is a great color for spring and summer – but something about this shade just has a hold on me right now. That Mansur Gavriel bag above – ugh! Too good. Shop some of my favorite blush moments below!

Fall’s Most Wanted | Black Boots

 

Fall is finally almost upon us and one of fall’s most
wanted staples this year (and every year really, right?!) is a great pair of
little black booties. For me, I look for something that won’t break the bank –
especially these days with a little babe on the way. And something that will be
versatile. I want to know if I can wear these booties with black skinny jeans,
cut off shorts, little dresses, blue jeans, and more? If the answer is yes
I know I am on the right track. Another thing I personally look for is comfort.
I tend to go for more of a Chelsea Boot which usually is designed with a lower
heel so that I can wear them all day long and multiple days in a row without
having to bandage up my feet afterwards. I’ve done the leg work and narrowed
down the best options in stores right now. Click below to shop!

5 Transitional Pieces You Need for Fall

Photo by: Adam Katz Sinding via W Magazine | Fall Street Style

 

A good fall wardrobe starts with the basics. You want to be
able to layer, to mix and match, & to switch things up with ease. You want
pieces that all work together and that you can wear in multiple different ways.
This really is the basis for a good wardrobe any time of year, but it is especially important
for fall because you are constantly layering. I rounded up the top 5
transitional pieces you need for fall below – these will take you from warm to
cool weather with ease!
1.
Hats – If you aren’t a hat person, I get it. I
used to not be a hat person either. I wanted to be a hat person but just felt
like it wasn’t working for me. I eventually found my groove and found hats that
worked best for my body head shape. I love using hats to transition your
wardrobe to fall! They can add texture and warmth to your outfit depending on
the color and material. For fall I would go for a felt fedora in neutral colors
like gray, taupe, and burgundy. Oh, and of course olive or that military green
color that was huge last season. All of these colors bring WARMTH to the outfit
and just really give off a good fall vibe. Shop my favorites here:

2.
Booties – This is a no-brainer, right?! I mean
when aren’t booties a good idea? I
personally wear them all year round but I love kicking off fall with a great
new pair of booties. Especially in taupe. I am obsessed with taupe booties
right now which says a lot because usually I am a black and white kind of gal.
I think that taupe is an awesome shade to ease into fall with because it looks
great with denim and you can also pair it with black without giving off that
dark brown and black combo that makes some of us shudder a bit. And again, it
brings that warmth factor to the table. Shop my favorites here:

3.
Denim
Jackets – I have a serious passion for a good denim jacket. I own probably 3 or
4 and that is after getting rid of a couple. I think having a good denim jacket
is essential to any good wardrobe and for the fall season it allows you to keep
wearing those cute summer dresses a little longer. Throw your denim jacket over
a chic little dress add those taupe booties and hat and you are good to go! Check
out my favorites here:

4.
Long Cardigans
– Having a good quality cardigan at your fingertips is always a plus. I have
been wearing the same one for an embarrassing amount of time and this year I am
finally investing in some new ones. I am obsessed with this Acne Studios one from last season
but in trying to keep myself on somewhat of a budget, I have found these other
ones that give you the same look without breaking the bank:

5.
Velvet anything – And last but not least, I say
what better way to step into fall then by adding a little velvet to your
wardrobe?! This is a material that is really hard to wear in those hotter
months but makes such a statement for fall! I have always been a huge fan of
velvet and I am thrilled to pieces that it is having a moment this fall! Step
your fall game up with these velvet pieces:

Maternity Style Roundup

Any woman who has been pregnant before knows the struggle of finding clothes that still fit your body, are affordable, and most of all – are comfortable. As your belly starts to grow the LAST thing you want is to feel constricted in any way or to be wearing an itchy top in the heat of the summer. Or, worse – to be stuffed into your old clothes trying to make it work but really unable to breathe. I have always been on the smaller side so a lot of people scoff at me when I talk about gaining weight during pregnancy. But the truth is, it doesn’t matter what size you are – your body is changing, and therefore you have to find clothes to make you feel comfortable AND confident.

Now that I am halfway through – 20 weeks TODAY – I have rounded up some of my favorite maternity (and items that aren’t maternity but work) items so you don’t have to sacrifice style during this special time.
These leggings by Ingrid & Isabel are my go-to, been-living-in-everyday, super comfortable, will last the entire pregnancy favorite leggings. I love the zipper detail at the ankle and they are NOT see through on the bum and feel super high quality. These ones from Old Navy look super comfy too!
I bought this slip dress in white when I was 12 weeks pregnant and it is on sale now for $25.99! They also have the maternity version of the same dress (on sale too!) here and more colors of the same maternity version here.
This striped t-shirt is perfect for the days you want to feel comfortable – I actually wear this out & to sleep in because it is that comfy!I am somewhat obsessed with denim – denim shirts, dresses, you name it! One of the first maternity items I bought was this denim Maternity dress by Topshop and it is now on sale for $37.50!

A SPLURGE item I purchased were these AG Maternity Skinny Leg Jeans. I actually went a size down (normally a 26 but took a 25 in these). They fit like a dream and I know I will wear them through my entire pregnancy.

This tank dress from Old Navy is perfect for these hot summer months AND on sale for $22.99 right now!

I got this Rails Flannel as a part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and it is super comfy and roomy – enough to allow for my growing belly! I got it in a size SM.I got this shirred tank yesterday from Old Navy for $5.99 – such a steal and perfect for layering!

This off-the-shoulder dress from Azalea SF is perfect to wear as a shirt with a belt over top of it. I wore this out the other night and felt comfortable and chic!To smooth and lift under fitted dresses I got these secret fit shapers – basically Spanx but way more comfortable – as in you can actually still breathe.

These black skinnies make me feel like I am getting dressed pre-pregnancy. They are super skinny through the leg and are super versatile.

This dress is ADORABLE and would be perfect for my trip to London next week – I am thinking I could pair it with cute sneakers or sandals.

I am also dying for this polka-dot maternity dress that is on sale right now! Perfect for the office or lunches with my girls.

I purchased a version of these leather-looking jeans by Citizen’s of Humanity and always feel super edgy and a little more chic when I wear them!

Dying to splurge on these distressed denim jeans which support Christy Burlington Burns and her charity, Every Mother Counts – a non-profit charity dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
