FLOWER POWER | 10 Ways to Pull Off Fall's Floral Trend

via @howimetmystyle

Originally posted in The Fashion Scoop

While summer might be officially over, I'm not ready to say goodbye just yet. Luckily, the fashion world isn't great at letting go either. One only has to glance at any fashion influencer to see that when it comes to fall fashion, it's all about embracing the season with a healthy dose of denial. Yup, I'm talking fall florals. The runways were loaded with moody blooms that perfectly echo our feelings about fall. We love it, we're ready for it, but at the same time, those lasting memories of gardens in bloom and a long, lazy summer can't help but bring us joy. The leaves might be falling but our wardrobes are just getting ready to bloom - think embroidered floral sweaters and jeans, pretty floral ankle boots, and fun floral printed pants that bring life to our solids and let us think warm thoughts. Alright fall we're ready for you...kind of..sort of...;)

SWIPE RIGHT | 3 Summer-to-Fall Outfit Hacks You'll Want to Try Now

All signs point to fall. The days are so much shorter, the kids are back at it and the weather - ok fine, the weather just has no clue. While I'm excited to shop for cozy oversized sweaters, jeans I'll live in, a new fall bag (um, hi Selena), and of course gorge new boots, I can't completely let go of summer just yet. Luckily, this in-between season is the perfect time to slowly transition your wardrobe while getting your mind around the fact that yes, winter is coming. Waaahhhh. 

For now, let's leave our white tees, denim skirts and floral dresses in the mix. Let's pick up a few new pieces to give life to our most-loved summer things. Simply adding a blazer, a pair of over-the-knee boots, a statement faux-leather skirt or a pretty pastel sweater will help get you in a fall state of mind. Happy (fall) shopping! It really is the best fashion season, don't you think? xo

SHOP TALK | How to Slay Fall for Under $100

Love this pretty knit from Reitmans

Originally posted in The Fashion Scoop

I have a growing list of concerns when it comes to fall shopping. First, the jeans. My old ones look old, but not old enough to look vintage, so I need new ones that look vintage but aren't, if you know what I mean. Then, the sweaters - I mean, nothing gets you over the loss of summer faster than a cozy oversized sweater paired with perfect boots. Speaking of which, don't even get me started on boots. You'd only have to glance at my bursting closets to realize I do n.o.t. need new shoes but somehow, every fall, there I am taking home blue velvet ankle boots that I 'had to have' and over-the-knee suede boots that I literally 'could not live without'. So many wants. So many bills. 

While I firmly believe in investing in quality pieces that you love, I've found loads of fantastic pieces that fall well within my shopping budget this year. The stores are loaded with cozy, well-made finds that you can add to your existing wardrobe now to get it right up to date. Silver shoes, beautifully detailed knits, and subtle hits of soft pink, purple and olive green give me all the feels I need to get pumped up for the season ahead. Scroll through the thumbnails below to get your fall fashion fix. Did I mention there's nothing over $100 on this list? #slay

BUY NOW, WEAR LATER | These 15 Affordable Fall Finds Will Prime Your Closet for the Season Ahead

Shopping is a year-round sport. First there's the training - reading blogs, scrolling through Pinterest, browsing Instagram all count towards being a pro shopper. Then, there's the practicing; this is where window shopping comes in. You might not be ready to put down your credit card quite yet but you're almost there. And then, there's the main event, which of course is the shopping itself. We do this winter, spring, summer & fall, and like all truly great athletes, we never stop. There's always more to learn, there's always room to grow, and there's that ever-present goal to try to beat our own personal bests. 

Part of being a hall-of-fame-level shopper involves trying to justify our purchases by getting as much wear out of our finds as possible. In the middle of summer, this is when we really put our skills to the test. It's a bit late to shop for summer things (unless they're on sale in which case, we put on our game faces and hit that sales rack hard), and it's still a bit too hot to wear full fall wardrobes without the risk of injury - or at the very least the need to rehydrate. It's a dangerous sport but with all great risks come great rewards. These 15 fall finds will prime your closet for the season ahead and help you slay the fashion game while you're at it. Don't you just love a winning streak? Happy August - hope you're soaking up every last minute of summer xx

WEEKEND WARRIORS | These 30 Finds Will Take Your Off-Duty Wardrobe from Meh to Amazing

I love my job. I really do. But if I'm honest...I mean, if I had to choose between the work week and the weekend, the weekend always wins. I'm not talking Selena Gomez's The Weekend. I'm talking those blissful few days at the tail end of a long week that involve chilling. 

I like to keep my weekends chilled in every respect: chilled out vibes that include as few plans as possible, chilled wine or beer (rosé all day, Corona por favor), and a maximally chill wardrobe. I cannot possibly do the weekend to my fullest potential if any of those 3 boxes are left unchecked. And so, I make it my mission every Friday to Sunday to cross off each of those to-do's to chill as productively as possible. 

When it comes to your weekend wardrobe, these late summer days might have you feeling some wardrobe fatigue. Perhaps your shorts are too short. Perhaps your tees feel just a little too loved. Or maybe, just maybe, you just feel like shopping because in my mind, getting new clothes releases dopamine, which results in an overall feeling of yup, you guessed it: chill. Goals = met. 

Scroll through the thumbnails below to check out 30 finds that will take your off-duty wardrobe from meh to amazeballs. Oh, and speaking of the weekend...yay! Happy Friday!
