I do not know about you but with the return of the fishnet trend my Instagram feed has become saturated with photos featuring the web-like tights under dresses, jeans, skirts, etc.

This was one of my favorite NYFW outfits I wore. I didn’t get the best photos in it so I wanted to be sure I got it up on the blog! I had bought this flared leather mini skirt at Intermix and originally was looking for some sort of bodysuit to wear with it. When I found this whimsical tee with the printed message “Love is a Verb” I thought it would give the outfit a different twist…but it was still missing something.
I got back to the apartment tried it on again and couldn’t quite put my finger on it. After trying on several different belts and accessories I finally tried on this crystal feather belt (it belongs to my sister) and thought it added a playful touch…especially combined with a crystal choker. I mean it was fashion week…..sometimes more is more!
While I'm not feeling the greatest these last few days suffering with allergies that almost always turn into sinus problems, I'm forcing myself to keep on trucking. A little slower but non the less. I have been wanting a pair of these Stella McCartney shoes for a while now and usually by the time I'm ready to pull the trigger they are already sold out. This time I was all over them and I'm obsessed with them. They run about a half size big so beware if you should decide to get them. There are so many ways I want to wear them, I think they look good with just about everything. Today I paired them with these white jeans and a striped tee and then added a belt to pull the color from the shoes. I love to mix color and pattern to add that little spark to an outfit.
While not looking forward to fall, I wanted to start giving you all a little insight to what I have been seeing. I will be updating you from time to time now about what is popular for the upcoming season. I am seeing a lot of velvet, jacquard and leather, patchwork, large floral prints and right up my alley, Sooo many ruffles. The shoes are gorgeous... and everything is so rich looking. I feel like we are headed back to a time of ladylike elegance. Some of my favorite things this year are the Gucci kangaroo jacquard loafers, wide belts and I am loving the hand held bags of yesteryear. They started showing up this summer and are on my list for fall. I have started my pre-fall additions so be sure to check them out.
