Leather Weather & Dainty Deets

Heads up, ladies and gents - we are headed into better weather and I cannot contain my excitement for the Fall fashion trends that are about to emerge! Us Arizona fashionistas are sooo over this heat and are moving into Fall time, even though we're bound to die in our leather skirts and booties. We know we'll be getting those beautiful 75 degree days soon enough. With that said, I wanted to clue you in on the trends I'm most excited about for Fall and how you can rock them yourself. Let's get to it!

You guys... I am SO excited about this BCBGMAXAZRIA dress! For one, it was a total steal from Buffalo Exchange for just $24.00 and it fits like a glove! Which means it's so comfortable and I will have it for the rest of my life. Not only have I already worn it so many different ways, I've also gotten so many compliments! Keep an eye out on how to style your LBD multiple ways and how I'll be rocking it all Fall long. This number is definitely going down in my personal fashion accomplishment history.

The Skirt you Forgot you Had

I can't tell you how many times I thought about giving this skirt away and eventually forgot I had it. When I first bought it (two years ago), I loved it but was too afraid to rock it out in the real world. I guess I felt like I was drowning in leather and it was just too much. I also think I just wasn't ready to mess around with it. I worked at a law office at the time and went to school. This just didn't feel like an appropriate, comfortable piece for those occasions. This is where I'll insert my tip for the week: if you buy something you originally looooovvve but find that you never get a chance to wear it, please just give it some time in your closet. It almost never fails that these pieces will eventually make their debut, maybe just a little further into the future.  Now that I've worn this skirt once, I can't stop thinking of all the other cute ways I want to pair it... Stay tuned!

Bows & Dainty Deets

You can probably tell I'm pretty minimalistic when it comes to my everyday fashion, so I'm all about the dainty details this Fall. A huge trend right now - silky bow! You can get so creative with this little trend! This bow tie was actually from a pair of modern suspended pants (LOL). I never used them as suspenders, so now they're being used as a cute hair tie or addition to clothing, like you see in the photo. I'm also looking to rock chandelier earrings more than I did last year, as they've proven to go from dressy to casual - allowing me to check versatility off the list! While chokers are getting a little left behind, choosing other necklaces with a similar neck line is reeeeally my jam right now. It keeps things simple yet edgy.

I hope this has given you some inspiration for the first day F A L L and that you are ready to switch it up when it comes to your closet. Break out the LBD, that item you forgot you had, and your fave go-to accessories and I can guarantee you, you're good to go for Fall 2017!
