Hearts & Floral Booties

I hope you are having a good week so far. I have been in a great routine this week (I guess it has only been two days) with waking up earlier. I really love have a little bit of me time in the morning to just read, listen to a podcast and workout. It is a routine that I really want to keep.

So this is the outfit I wore on Valentine’s Day. Yep I am so about the pink right now. Almost every outfit has some pink element lately. I think statement booties are becoming one of my favorite things. They just make an outfit so much more exciting. I have been eyeing another pair but really don’t need them right now.

2017 Fall Trends

Last week I covered the fall closet essentials for that classy autumnal look and this week I am going to cover some trends that have been prevalent on the runway and the street. I actually found quite a few things that mix these trends so there is lots of overlap which is less expensive and more fun!

Dark Florals: Darker florals but basically florals in general. I am really into floral jackers specifically. But florals have been such a big trend this fall that they deserve their own explanation. I found this top along with some other great floral inspiration on InStyle. This is one of those trends I did not really see coming since I always associate the pattern with spring and sometimes summer. I really like the darker twist though because it adds a little something that brings out the fall vibes in a piece.

Velvet: Yes this material has been pretty in all year but it shows no signs of leaving as of yet. Blush velvets have been big as well as more rusty colors and burnt orange (very true to fall). I have also seen velvet statement booties around a lot in many different colors especially most shades of blue. This bow comes in blush, dark green, a rusty golden color and traditional black!

Mustard Sweaters: So really just the color mustard. It has been a fall color however it is especially in this season. There are lots of different options out there like this one from Modcloth which has a great neckline. Sweaters are always a go to during this time of year so what better way to spice it up than with a fun color.

Blush Anything: This is one trend I also really didn’t expect to last into the fall season but it has and I am stoked about it. It is such a beautiful color and I have these perfect mules to take me through at least mid October. Also this gorgeous blush jacket by Kate Spade and this dress, which I also linked below.

Silk Dresses: I have seen this silk dress style, especially with long sleeves, everywhere this fall. They are very pretty and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. This dress is  great combination of multiple trends. Also this blush dress from Nordstrom is undoubtable my favorite (plus its cheaper!). This mustard dress is also beautiful and definitely brings that fall vibe (pictured).

Statement Booties: florals and velvet and great colors, some pearls. I mentioned these a bit with that velvet trend but statement booties are a major trend this fall. Booties have been in for a while but this year take it to the next level with florals, bright colors, pearls and other embellishments. Go for a heel if you can! Personally I am not big into the sock boots but I do like the height of sock boots. I do love this trend though, it makes an outfit so much more fun!

I hope these summaries gave some ideas about fun ways to bring some new, on-trend pieces into your closets. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Feeling Peachy

I took the photos for this outfit while in Maine and I am definitely wishing I were still there! It was just such a beautiful place with amazing artists and interesting landscapes. This outfit will definitely be a staple this fall as it is great for layering and those cooler days. I have probably mentioned before but this Rebecca Minkoff bag is so beautiful. It is sold out now but there are several others that are the same style just different colors. I also love this block heel trend because it makes for much easier walking but still looks amazing.

Ready to Fly

img_4357img_4360img_4383img_4388I have definitely always struggled with what to wear while traveling, especially on flights. There are always so many factors to take into account. Recently I have found what works pretty well for me:

I normally choose a cotton dress because they are so comfortable but also can look nice and put together. This one in particular is long enough that if I don’t wear tights it protects my legs from the sticky airport/plane seats.

A scarf of some kind is definitely necessary. They are so versatile and can be very useful for the actual flight because the temperature on planes can be inconsistent and I tend to get pretty chilly at some points. I also tend to carry a cardigan or sweatshirt with me in case it gets extra cold.

Shoes can be difficult to chose because there are so many factors to think about. I want to look nice but be comfortable at the same time. Security is always a factor in shoe choice as well because some are way easier to take on and off than others! Boots! These boots are extra easy to take on and off because the have no zippers or anything and slip on easily. These are especially great for this time of year but I would definitely wear them in warmer weather as well. I also just love to wear these shoes, they are so cute and probably one of my favorite purchases of the year!

Jacket: This normally just depends on weather and it is really cold right now so I chose an extra heavy one.
