Despite my wish for Fall, I embraced the Summer spirit today with vibrant colors.
What I’m Wearing:
Blouse, Shorts, & Clutch – Forever 21
Shoes – New Look
Sunglasses – Jeepers Peepers
Summer…it’s everyone’s favorite season. The warm weather, BBQs, and beach days; what’s not to love? Well, I’m over it. Shorts weather is great at the start, but come July and August, I am sick of the heat and humidity. I’m sick of that constant ‘sticky’ feeling. I can’t even fathom turning on my hair straightener at 7am because of sweating profusely before even walking out of my house. Don’t hate me for saying this friends; I am not asking for a blizzard. For fashion’s sake, this Buffalo-born woman would like some cooler temps.
Here are three reasons why I am looking forward to fall:
1.) Faux Fur
I will admit, my summer fashion is not as exciting as my winter wardrobe. I have a few cute skirts, dresses and shorts, but once it surpasses 80 degrees, I get ‘too cranky’ and throw on whatever is least likely to give me heat exhaustion. One fashion trend I am obsessed with, is faux fur coats and vests. I say faux fur because I love animals, and my bank account loves faux prices. There are so many ways to style these beauties, and they fit perfectly into that ‘rock chic’ style I love. I recently purchased a faux fur leopard jacket by Nicole Miller, and I CANNOT wait to style it this fall.
2.) Leather Look
I am a huge fan of the leather look. Most pieces I own, again, are faux, but I am still in love with the sleek look. I own two little moto jackets, a pair of waxed pants, and leather look leggings. It’s a fashion trend that is so sexy, that it will never fade away. My little jackets taunt me every time I open my closet between June-September. Hurry up and get chilly already!
Ankle boots, riding boots, thigh-high boots; you name it, I probably own it. I realize that you can still wear small booties in the summer time, but personally, I just can’t comprehend smothering my feet on a hot and muggy day. Riding boots, for example, are so universal, and easily paired with anything from leggings to professional attire. Flip flops are colossal, but not as chic as my boots!
So there you have it, a few fashion based reasons I am ready for fall/winter.
No hard feelings summer, I still appreciate your presence for beach and romper season!
Today, it was all about styling a graphic tee from one of my favorite bands. Perfect for ‘on-the-go’ or festival attire.
