Short weeks tend to be unavoidably rough. The weekend just can’t come back again quickly enough. Summer may be officially over, but there’s no shortage of sunshine here in LA. Although after a little Fall shopping, I can’t wait for some cool nights to break out some faux fur!

{wear} 13 must-have fall fashion trends to buy …now.

6 Sep

Fall is undoubtably my favorite time of year. In a perfect world I would spend the whole season in New York from just after Labor Day until the first snow of winter. Fall foliage, brisk fall air, cashmere, pumpkin-flavored everything, the holiday festiveness that invades at Thanksgiving, maybe a mitten… my perfect world is pretty good. But no matter the Coast, I love Fall fashion. After a hot summer of minimal layers, sometimes a girl just needs a sweater, and leather leggings, and faux fur everything, and boots. Don’t forget the boots. BOOTS! With no further ado, enjoy my favorite, lucky 13, trends for Fall.

{wear} flat-out fab

28 Aug

Ahh, shoes. Even for the heel-obsessed, vertically-challenged (yours truly), flats are a necessary staple to every stylish wardrobe. While helping a friend shop for a new and improved wardrobe over the weekend, I was inspired by super fun flat styles like the smoking slipper trend, spike adornments, and embroidered skulls and mustaches that might just be enough to make me take an extended break from my stilettos… Ok, not a chance, but every good shoe deserves its moment.

{wear} camo girl

22 Aug

The camo trend is back and I’m pretty happy about it. I love a good casual trend to take us through the end of summer and into the fall. Pair them with a patriotic tank, some killer heels, and a pop of purse color. Don’t forget the metallic mani!

{wear} striped dress obsessed

14 Aug

I am obsessed with striped dresses. OB-SESS-ED. Dressed up, dressed down, boho, uptown — they go any way you want them. I own this H&M version (thank you, $13), and one of my favorite looks as of late includes sheer breezy layers that deftly shield the summer sun and evening chills. Go glam with gold accessories and perhaps a mixed metal or two, and of course sky high-wedges and you’ve got yourself a serious outfit. I wore a similar combo this past weekend to a birthday BBQ during this lovely LA heat wave…

{wear} a high-tops & floral maxi story

8 Aug

I finally got onboard with the fashion sneaker trend. Recently, I snapped up the Topshop wedge high-tops featured here, and my first order of business was to figure out how to wear them and look chic (as opposed to a trend train-wreck). For my tall friends, it’s the fight against clumpy, while for me it’s stumpy. Whichever ‘umpy’ you are, it’s a similar plight in balancing proportions and feminine flair. So far, my favorite combo is the floral maxi dress, a la below…

  1. Rachel Zoe Natasha Scarf Collar Gown, $695
  2. Aerobic Wedge Trainers, $96
  3. American Apparel Large Suede Carry-All Pouch, $56
  4. Karla Deras X RomanLuxe Multi Python Bracelet, $88

Stellar accessorizing comes in many varieties, but when function matches up with form it’s a special moment. Enter sun hats. Wrinkle-preventer and fabulous-maker.
