Up until recently anytime I’d see anything with one shoulder, I’d automatically flash back to some cringe-worthy trends of the early 00’s. Specifically a black top I wore with a hot pink mini skirt to a Justin Timberlake concert that made me look like a Good & Plenty candy. So when this trend came back around I was a bit hesitant at first. Then I started seeing the silhouette more and started to love how ruffles could add a billowy look, instead of the body-con way I wore it in the past.
I always think of August as a transitional month as it’s the last full month of summer. But now instead of back-to-school shopping, I’m pulling out early fall pieces for the next month or so. This denim jacket is something that never really leaves my closet, no matter what season. Even though it’s still warm here I usually bring it with me because I’m always cold.
I’m a sucker for pleated anything… it’s fun and super flattering on everyone. This two tiered pleated skirt is really versatile. I did a fun weekend look here but it could also be office appropriate with a button up shirt and pumps.
Speaking of shoes, I was lucky to get a sneak peek of two pairs from Banana Republic’s fall collection. They’re all online now and are so good. Again perfect for work or just every day life and so many great colors for fall.
I’m all about pom poms right now. How cute are these sandals? They’re priced so well at $40 which is great for a trendy item. I don’t know about you but I don’t like to spend a lot on such trendy pieces.
These are so versatile I’ve already worn them a few different ways, like with overalls to brunch last weekend. But here I pulled out their red and blue with this romper and my Celine bag and was ready to go!
Hope you have a happy Monday!
Happy Monday! Did that weekend go by too fast for anyone else? I thought it was time to share an instagram update. I’ve been posting a lot over there lately. Make sure you’re following along over there to stay on top of things. 🙂
