3 Things I'm On The Look Out For This Fall

As the school year approaches, it's time to switch gears from the summer beach pants and flip flops to get ready and shop for fall pieces to switch up last years wardrobe a little. 
Here are a few trends I have noticed that will be on the rise for this fall and am on the look out to purchase in the near future...

MULES AND BACKLESS LOAFERS 

Ever since I saw these on Gigi Had last winter I knew they would be big and sure enough the Gucci Princetown leather Slippers have been the inspiration for many lower end stores for fall of '17

On the lower price range...



EMBROIDERED FLORAL PRINT 

As seen through brands like Free People and Madewell, Topshop or Zara, this look of embroidered flowers in muted colors will carry our looks through the fall.  

           

Madewell - $128            Zara - $49.99


OLIVE GREEN 

Olive Green looks like it's shaping up to be a dominant color as the summer ends. I love it because this means it can act as a neutral and some of my favorite pants I purchased last year are olive green (as seen HERE) so I can't wait to pull them out again

Enjoy your shopping and the rest of your summer closet!!

Red Pom Poms

Love this fun bright, poppy red sun dress which is so easy to throw on and a nice statement piece. I added this clutch to mimic the pom poms in the dress which almost camouflage into the red when it is worn.
Enjoy your Friday and enjoy your weekend!

Hilton Head

We dashed down to the beach for the weekend and I brought along this dress I ordered at the start of the summer. When I first ordered it, I bought it as a regular dress but after trying it on I think it works better as a cute cover up!
Another beach essential for me other than a cute cover up is a big sun hat. I try to avoid excess sun exposure and also like the look of a huge brimmed hat.

Skirts at Sunset

I bought this skirt forever ago and could not figure out how to style it! It is pretty flouncy and doesn't have much of a fitted shape to it, so this top in particular didn't jump out at me to pair with the skirt. I didn't think I would like how the billow of the top would meet with the skirt. I was wrong, however, and like the layered look that it creates when I wore it to dinner the other night. 
Molly and I rushed back before the sun set to shoot this look. I love how the flash of the camera also helped this bright white top stand out even more. I've always said one can never have too many white tops and I think they are valuable because one, they don't go out of style or season, and two, because even a plain white top like this one can have character and stand out.

Venice

We had the best time in Venice which was the last leg of our trip! The city was like nothing you've ever seen before because there really weren't streets anywhere for bike, cars, etc and it was so amazing to me to think that it was build like this hundreds of years ago literally on marshes and in the water.  

We went on a gondola ride with another a few other people from our group and it was a highlight of the trip, in a gondola a few boats behind us there was a music group and so we could listen to the Italian songs being played as we floated through the canals.
Another highlight of Venice was drinking cappuccinos at San Marco's square. We really had cappuccinos all day every day while in Italy which I'm sure raised my coffee/caffeine tolerance a bit (opps) but even at the little restaurant there as a music group playing that you could enjoy while sitting outside.
 
I thought the little gondoliers were all so adorable in their matching hats and striped shirts!

Hope you enjoyed these past few Italy recaps and be on the lookout for more outfit posts to come in August!
