Happy Monday Loves!! I had a crazy busy, but extremely exciting and fun weekend. We celebrated my best friend's birthday, and two of our other good friends got engaged!! We were able to be there to watch the proposal and celebrate with everyone after, and it was such a heart-warming experience to see our friends so incredibly happy.

In other news, I found this A D O R A B L E Who What Wear dress at Target recently. I'm loving the ric rac detailing - it reminds me of the 90's! I decided to go down a size to an extra small - I would recommend doing the same since there is a lot of material! This is such a flattering piece that can be dressed up or down by changing up your accessories. I recently wore this to an outdoor wedding reception, and then wore it the next week to run errands! AND the price tag definitely won't hurt your wallet. Happy shopping Loves! xoxo

Bold Patterns

Bold patterns are definitely a growing trend of the moment. Not only is this sleeveless turtleneck sweater from Ann Taylor Loft perfect for transition weather, but it also captures this trend in a slightly more subtle way, increasing the sweater's versatility in where it can be worn, ranging from work to family gatherings. I chose to pair it with black liquid leggings and booties to dress it up a bit, but for a more casual look, options include layering a fitted denim shirt underneath or wearing with destructed skinny jeans. Since this sweater is meant to be worn oversized though, go with fitted layering pieces to complete the outfit for a well-balanced look.

A Taste of Boho Chic

Mackenzie ChigloComment

If you're looking to tap into the boho chic side of your style personality, this outfit is for you. By combining a floppy wool hat and sheer cardigan with more updated pieces like high waisted skinny jeans and leather shooties, I was able to incorporate this trend into my outfit without it being over the top. The 70's inspired boho trend is a great look to experiment with, but keep in mind that balance is key to achieving this look (we don't want to look like we just stepped off the set of That 70's Show, although if Ashton Kutcher was there I may have a change of heart). Other ways to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe include bell sleeve tops and dresses, peasant tops, anything with fringe accents, and suede statement pieces (i.e. a suede vest).

Leather Details

It's finally sweater weather (I think), and I couldn't be more excited about some of the unique pieces that I've found this fall. One trend that I really love right now is leather accents; they provide a little bit of an edge without being over the top. Whether it's a leather sash and pockets like this sweater, or leather trim on a cozy oversize cape, I just can't get enough. It doesn't have to stop there though. The variety in texture of the leather on my boots provides an interesting twist as well. The front half of the shaft on these boots is actually a stretchy material in disguise, making them some of the most well-fitting and comfortable that I've found. Leather accents are popping up all over the place though, ranging from leather fringe on the bottom of a poncho or sweater, to leather sleeves on an army-inspired jacket. This truly is a trend that is easy to recreate, and with so many different options, you can cater it to your own style personality.
