Summer Into Fall

Saturday, August 31, 2013

Shirt: Free People
Pants: Anthropologie AG Stevie Ankle

Necklace: Banana Republic
Tote: Target
Boots: Clark's 

This is the Free People shirt that has got me thinking. 

White. Flow-y. Embroidered. Layered. 
All things I never go for it clothes, but the change in seasons is effecting my sensibilities. Suddenly all I want to wear is studs and blouses and boots and leather and denim and burnished gold. 

Also very excited to bring these boots back again. They were my favorite footwear through fall/winter of last year. Am currently scouring all of the September issues for a new pair to crush on, but it'll be hard to top these.

Booties: here, here, here 
Tote: here, here 
Denim: here, here 

Happy weekend!

Inspiration Saturday (Friday) 2

The end of summer always brings a style slump, but this year's feels deeper. I've been feeling uninspired by my clothes and combinations in the past few weeks, so I've been spending lots of time on Pinterest. My style has always skewed preppy, but I'm feeling a change blow through. I bought a beautiful white flow-y, lacey tunic from Free People yesterday - something I never would have even looked at 3 months ago - and I can't stop thinking about it. 

Things are shifting, in a lot of ways. Stay tuned for how it all turns out...

And check out SWIILPT on Pinterest to see what I'm wondering about. 
Happy weekend to you!

What is with me and orange dresses?!?!

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Dress: Anthropologie

Headband: Anthropologie

Shoes: DSW

Lipstick: Wet n Wild "Coraline"

First of all,
notice anything different?!

A huge thanks to Jelly Design Studio for the layout facelift! I'm feelin' years younger.
Also, after this post I am not allowed to wear orange dresses on this blog!! Ever again!!

I've worn this gem to work a couple of times, and also worn out out for drinks. I loved it when it was full price but couldn't stomach the pricetag...lucky for me it went on sale not too long ago.

Honestly though, what is it with me and orange dresses with back details??
There's the one in this post...
and this one...
and this one...

I feel like a fairy princess in this dress, so it only made sense to accessorize with a "crown".

I'm have this whole weekend off, and I'm planning on going to some street festivals, dancing, seeing my friends, and reading every September Issue I can get my paws on.
Happy Friday!
