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...;)

I've never believed in letting kids have all the fun. I'm not saying kids shouldn't have any fun - that would make me the worst -  I'm just stating that fun should be shared by all ages, don't you think? And when it comes to fall shopping, we should never stop getting those back-to-school feels. There's a certain sadness about saying goodbye to summer for sure; but there's also that feeling of anticipation, of wondering what's coming next, of starting fresh.

Since September's widely considered to be the real start of the new year in the fashion calendar, now is the time to take stock of your stuff, donate the old/ugly/ill-fitting and shop for some new things. Whether you're a teen, a twenty-something, or are someone like me who basically just loves any excuse to shop, I've rounded up 50 of my fave school-ready finds below. You might be going to an actual school; I'm currently enrolled in a school called life. It's a stretch, I know. Either way, we all need to shop, right? Happy new school year, lovelies! Hope you're enjoying every last little minute of summer xx

SAVED BY THE BELL | Our Top 25 Kids Picks for Back-to-School

 

Originally posted in The CLOSET

Alright, here we go. It's time to get real, for real this time. I mean, let's face it: school starts in less than 2 weeks. I CAN'T. And yet, I must. I mean, as a mom to two young kids, I know how important it is to shop for the best things before all the sizes run out.  I know how much it means to my kids to have pants that don't fall short, shoes that actually fit and of course, aaalll the cool kid swag.  

The start of school is kind of a big deal so in my mind, it should be marked - and if marking an occasion requires shopping, that's always a win in my books. For back-to-school '17, there are so many cute things to get excited about - think graphic tees that are as cool as they are cute, shoes that can handle the pressure of any playground and magic sequins on everything. Basically, if I wish it came in my size, I'm buying it for them.

Summer is a time to just chill. It's about being carefree and worry-free and keeping it extra simple, sweethearts. While most of us don't have the luxury of lounging on a dock all summer (AKA #goals) we do have the option of stress-free dressing. My favourite way? It's all about going matchy matchy. No need to overthink it: matchy dressing lets you pick one colour or theme and be done with it. The result? A super stylish pay-off with relatively little effort. Scroll down for 5 winning ways to go matchy right now. Hope you're having the best summer EVER xx
