So yes, it has, been a while. As I probably mentioned in my last post in late 2013, I started a new job last year and moved to a new city (back to my hometown, but still…). And yes, while I love my new job, it has been demanding and caused me to back off the whole blog thing for a while. But rest assured I still love the blog world and am slowly dipping my feet back into that realm. While summer has decided to make a (late) appearance, it’s definitely hard to think about dressing for fall. The time to start planning for that is now, though.
Also for the remainder of this year I really want to focus on remixing pieces I already have into everyday use. I’m not really in the mood to buy anything new and hope I can find some renewed inspiration in my closet!
Trends I’m noticing for this fall that I’ll touch on in the next few weeks:
2. Pattern mixing
4. Casual Chic
5. Dressing up smarter
6. Mixing casual and dressy
I’ll address these things in a future post. But for now I just wanted to say hello again and hope you haven’t given up on your own Lessons IN Style!
Each season has its trends, but I have to say this fall has some of my favorites I’ve ever seen in one season – moto jackets, leather trim, flannel, sequins, monochromatic, just to name a few. The thing that’s great … Continue reading →
There have been some big changes in the past few months; an out of state move, selling a house, starting a new job – so that’s why I’ve been so absent! Many of you have asked when I’m coming back … Continue reading →
Neutrals are big this fall – and two of my favorites, gray and olive green are all over the place right now. These are two colors that don’t take much thought when mixing with any other color on the spectrum.
Gray in many forms feels refined but cool. You can wear one piece alone or mix up shades of gray for a head-to-toe look.
The military look is big right now and of course olive green fits right in with that trend. It’s easy to mix it with almost any color in the spectrum, but pairing it with red may be a bit much, so I caution against that unless the holiday look is what you are trying to achieve.
Once again, having a hard time picking favorites, but I personally bought 1, 2, and 4 from the jewelry and 2 (in nude) and 3 (in leopard print) from the shoes. The jewelry is great – the bracelets are a lot of fun and are really cute in person and the necklace is something I’ve been trying to find for a while. I don’t have the shoes yet so we will see if they fit. I’ll let you know. So many great options!
It’s official. It’s spring. Because I said so. As much as I love my boots, sweaters, coats, etc., I’m ready to move on. When the spring stuff starts arriving in stores in January and February, I’m usually not ready for … Continue reading →
I wish everyone could visit my absolute favorite store ever. A store where you can’t help but smile when you walk in and out, that’s how great it is! But, I know not everyone lives in my city, state, or … Continue reading →
It’s safe to say Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City was obsessed with shoes. The episode where she talks to the shoes through the window saying “Hello lover” is quoted a lot. That’s because shoes are an important part … Continue reading →
Colored pants were big in 2012 and are still fresh for 2013. Pastels are especially popular and mint seems to be the coveted color for spring. Need help finding that perfect pair of mint pants? No fear, I’ve got several … Continue reading →
