70s Inspired

Top: Forever 21 | Flares: Asos (similar here + love all of these options)
Bag: Zara (another option I like) | Wedges: DV Dolce Vita
Sunnies: Karen Walker | Necklace: Chloe + Isabel


I mentioned this in my post the other day, but I've always been so inspired by 70s style, so I'm so happy it's so 'in' this year! I've been obsessed with long flared jeans for years now, and I love how big they are right now because they're seriously so slimming and elongating! I cannot turn down a pair of pants that has those effects. These flares are a few years old, but they're so flattering that I come back to them year after year.

September Wish List

Tee | Bag (worn in this post) | Blouse


After I finished putting together this month's wish list collage I realized it has the exact same color scheme as my August Wish List. I like what I like I guess! But really, these are the 'it' colors this fall, and I love that they can all be mixed and matched so much. I have a few olive green tops and have come up with so many different outfit combinations for them! It truly is another neutral. Creams and blues are beautiful colors to transition from summer to fall, and go with absolutely everything. And cognac/camel browns and beiges are an absolute must for fall accessories!

Standouts:

-I've never purchased Zara jeans, but as I was looking through their selection I found (no exaggeration) at least 8 pairs I would buy today if my budget allowed. I am seriously kicking myself for not finding them sooner! These flares are super flattering and such a great price, and they also have a lot of distressed skinnies to choose from. If you've tried their denim before, let me know what you thought about quality and sizing! The prices are so good...

-Speaking of Zara... I bought this canteen-style bag (worn in this post) and it's everything I wanted in a fall bag. Great quality for the price, super chic, and a great medium size (not your typical cross-body that only fits like a credit card and 1 lipstick). I also love these similar options here and here.

-I already have an olive tee, but I want that olive tee ^^. Typical. Judging on the pics online the fit looks ah-mazing. I think it would be cute now with boyfriend shorts, and cute all fall and winter under cardigans or a leather jacket.

-I need a pair of suede ankle boots in some variation of a beige or tan, and I'm leaning toward these. I've seen a lot of great options so far this season though, which I rounded up in this post if you're looking for a pair.

-For some reason right now I'm on a huge jewelry kick. I recently discovered Chloe + Isabel and I'm pretty much obsessed. Their style is gorgeous (a bit boho but still sophisticated), and I was so pleasantly surprised by their prices. I hosted a pop-up party last night, but if you missed it you can still shop it through Friday (9/4). I have one of their rings and one of their necklaces and want so much more!


I feel like I'm having a hard time restraining myself from spending all of my money this month because there are just so many cute things out! Let me know what you're loving this month!

Other things catching my eye at the moment...

Styling a Sundress for Fall

Dress: H&M (not online, love this & this) | Jacket: LOFT (50% off original price!)
Hat: Forever 21 ($12!) | Bag: Vince
Booties: old DV Dolce Vita (very similar)

Ironically I was sweating an unglamorous amount while shooting these pictures, but hey, at least I'm trying to transition to fall! We've at least had a few cooler nights, so I've been able to wear jeans and this hat a few times. I wore this dress on Instagram several times this summer (like here & here) with sandals, so I wanted to style it a completely different way for the summer-to-fall transition. What makes it work so well for fall is the more muted color palette. Obviously neon shades and bright florals don't exactly scream fall, so any neutral or softer-colored dresses you have will look really cute this fall with a denim jacket, leather bomber jacket, or even a long cardigan. Accessories also make all the difference, so swapping out sandals and a straw hat for booties and a wool hat will give your dress a whole new feel. I'm all for extending my wardrobe any way I can!
