I have had fall on the brain big time this weekend, perhaps last nights cooler weather had something to do with kicking it in? I love this time of year, it's perfect for sitting outside.....reading the September stacks of magazines I want to get through in the name of "research".
What trends have you identified for yourself this season?
I am on wholly on board with layering different shades of green (moss, kelly, peat, shaken and stirred please!), borrowing fabric and design elements from the boys (smoking slippers, oxfords, tailored pieces, at the ready), geometric print (hello, swoon fest at Miu Miu and Prada!), burgundy, plum, baroque-gorgeousness and of course, navy and black- together, once considered a total faux pas!
This dress from ALC is the perfect transition peice. I wore it to work last week with this white blazer and bright accents, and I will transition it right into fall with a black blazer and some heels, mixing the two shades with reckless abandon.
Part two of this post, a navy and black combo look to follow in September! Stay tuned.
