red red wine

Our fall color crash course is on burgundy.  Its also known as wine, oxblood, raisin, and a sister to the color red.  Burgundy is a tad more serious than the color red.  It’s meaning has been described as representing controlled power, determination, and is often favored by wealthy individuals.

Interesting, right?  So how do you wear it?

1. The obvious start is with a fabulous pair of colored cords or denim.  It’s the perfect backdrop to pair with neutrals such a camel, cream, black, and leopard.

neon glow

Neon brights were hot this summer, and are continuing to trend into Fall. A great way to transition to your neon peices is to pair with black. I love how neon pops against black, and how it’s easy to combine super-bright hues with a black “back-drop.”

Here’s how I mixed neon yellow, oranges and pinks with black for a colorful ensemble, perfect for the summer’s end…

fall fringe

by

In: Fall

Y’all know by now that fringe is one of my very favorite trends.  Of ALL TIME.  Like, if I could wear head-to-toe fringe all day, every day, I. would. DO. IT.

Luckily for me, the fringe trend is still going strong into fall.  They key is to pick one item (or two, you little rule-breaker), and fringe it up.

Yes. I promise to never say that again.

Recently, I incorporated a couple of fringe-y pieces into what is definitely one of my new favorite looks:

outfit details :: REACH TEES TANK // ANTHROPOLOGIE VEST  {no longer available, similar here and here}// GAP SKINNY LEGGINGS // FRINGED SHORT BOOT // NOONDAY COLLECTION EARRINGS // WRAP BRACELET

Listen.  I could write a whole blog post on my fringe booties and fringe earrings alone.  But I won’t, because that would be wasting precious seconds where you could actually be buying them.

And in case these aren’t your jam (another thing I should consider never saying again), here are some of my fringe favorites for fall.

(Bonus points if you can say that 3 times fast.)

(You know you just tried.)

Happy fringe-ing everyone!

Yikes.

Until next time,

I’m soaking up the last days of summer with a week at the beach on Hilton Head Island with my family. Since my kiddos don’t begin preschool until next week, this late summer vacation is a nice, quiet respite with good friends, when most of the world is already back to school and schedules. We’re enjoying every minute of the sand and surf!

One of the easiest casual looks to pull off right now, weather you are vacationing like me, running weekend errands or gathering for a cookout this holiday weekend, is a button-down shirt paired with shorts or a skirt. I personally love collecting patterned button-downs this time of year, since they wear easily into Fall paired with jeans or cords. I also love dressing up button-downs by tucking them into skirts. And don’t be afraid to add fun statement accessories to button-downs, as another way of dressing them up!

Here’s my current laid-back button-down beach look ::

knit dressing

Summer to Fall style can be a challenge sometimes.  The seasons may be changing, but the weather doesn’t always follow suit.  My favorite “one-stop shop” is a knit dress.  It’s the perfect piece for an easy grab and go look.  You can dress up with fun jewels and heels or wear casual with a bootie or flat.  As the weather cools down, throw on your favorite denim or military jacket.

This Anthropologie dress is the perfect piece for just about any body type and comes in 3 colors!  The tie belt cinches in at your waistline creating curves or defining your best assets.  It just flatters in all the right places!

In this transition of seasons, one of my favorite things to wear are skirts and dresses. I find that feminine-fitting, full  “swing skirts” can be one of the easiest summer-to-fall, day-to-night pieces in your wardrobe. And since skirts of all styles and shapes are trending this season, this is even more reason why such a skirt should be in every woman’s closet!

I love wearing these full-bodied skirts now with bare-legs and heels, and will wear them through fall and winter by adding tights and boots and/or heels.

This striped swing skirt from Anthropologie is the perfect example of such a transitional skirt…

Part of my job when shopping for clients is putting together outfits with items that are priced affordably.  It’s a challenge at times, but fun helping people find those steals and deals.  However, nothing drives me more crazy than walking into a closet and seeing several items with the price tags still attached.

Sometimes sale items are on sale for a reason.  Don’t get hung up on an extra discount and go crazy with a pile of stuff you don’t need.

Here are a few tips to consider when sale shopping.

* Try everything on.  EVERYTHING.

* If buying online, read reviews.  There might be a reason why something is on sale.

* Make sure that you have something in your closet to wear with an item you are buying.  Can you come up with 2-3 outfit combinations?

* Would you buy this item of clothing at regular price or are you buying it because of the $_.99 price tag?

There are a lot of great end of summer sales going on and many items are perfect purchases to wear now and take you into the Fall season.

Check out some of my current picks from a few of my favorites stores.

In: Denim, Fall

Lauren and Sherri joined forces back in the mall together last weekend, this time on the hunt for some great denim for Fall!

We choose two stores famous for their denim and jeans :: the Gap and Madewell.

Lauren & Sherri beginning their quest for great denim!

{For details on what we each wore shopping, pictured above, see the end of the post!}

We were eager to try the Gap’s “revamped” denim collection, by new designer Rebekka Bay. And we were both excited to explore the “denim bar” inside of Madewell, a J.Crew brand, known for its denim.

We started Saturday’s shopping adventure at the Gap, where we selected and tried on jeans in our own dressing rooms and then compared notes…

Gap 1969 Destroyed Sexy Boyfriend Jeans.

Lauren :: I love the wash and destruction of these “Sexy Boyfriend Jeans.” I wish that the denim material was a tad stretchier for comfort, but I think the overall fit is cute and that this is a good pair for the price point, especially if you can score them when Gap is doing one of its fantastic online sales!

Edit by Lauren | lauren & sherri do denim!

Sherri :: First of all, can we get an amen and hallelujah for the dressing rooms at Gap?  Y’all.  The lighting is fantastic, and you can drop 5 lbs just by looking in the mirror.  I pretty much plan to either A) move into one of them, or B) go there to try on random bathing suits from other stores.

That won’t be weird.

Anyway, these Sexy Boyfriend Jeans are a great price, and super flattering.  I agree with Lauren that I would have liked a tad more stretch.  But overall, they were pretty fantastic.
