I mentioned earlier this week that black has become a major part of my wardrobe. I love these French Connection shorts because of their croc print. It’s an unexpected take on basic black shorts. They are perfect to wear now and they will be super cool in the fall with ankle booties and a chunky knit sweater. To make wearing black on black a little more edgy mix in pieces like statement necklaces or wear different fabrics and textured prints, like pairing silk and croc print or leather and denim.

I am ALL about the midi skirt for fall and this pleated version is no exception. It’s such an easy style to pair with anything -sneakers, flats, heels, tees, a sweater, a blouse- the list goes on really, and no matter what it always looks chic. All of a sudden I’m noticing a lot of black in my wardrobe, not sure how it snuck in there, but I have to say I really like its versatility. And this skirt is the perfect example of a great piece to transition into fall because seriously how cute would this be with ankle boots like these and a cozy knit sweater?! Anyone else loving the pleated midi skirt as much as I am?

I finally felt better over the weekend so I was so excited to get dressed and go out on the town. Craig and I made the mistake of going downtown to eat dinner on Saturday night and it was insane, so many tourists! We ended up going to dinner on Broadway instead which was nice and mellow. I was really excited to wear my new Madewell high waist skinny jeans that I got while I was in NYC. They are so comfortable and flattering, I am really tempted to get them in every color. I love these plaid heels from Sole Society so much I honestly want to order another pair just to have a back up. A woman driving by while we were taking pictures actually put down her window and yelled to me asking where I got them! I think I’m going to get the flats too. Happy Monday everyone!

WEEKEND LINK LOVE: FALL SHOPPING LIST

Is there anything worse than being sick in the summer? I don’t want to get all Debby downer on you guys but I’ve been sick with a cold all week and I’m really hoping it’s the end of it so I can enjoy one of the last weekends of summer! Since I’ve been bed-ridden for the majority of the week I’ve had plenty of time to online window shop, and pick up a few things along the way.  Here’s to hoping this cold takes a hike so I can get back to my daily swim routine.

I’ve been dying to try SK-II so I finally splurged on this set from Nordstrom. It’s actually a great price for the trio and it’s a good way to try it out.

The ASOS sale is insane right now. Basically everything is 50-70% off. These are some of my favorites:

I have been OBSESSING over this blue coat by BB Dakota from Piperlime. It’s under $150! Definitely at the top of my list for fall. My love of distressed denim also continues and Piperlime has a great selection.

I’m loving Equipment‘s fall pieces. Particularly this plaid sweater and this leopard print shift dress.

J.Crew is back at it again with 30% off sale. I love this sweater and this silk shift dress

While I was in New York last week I picked up these Madewell high riser skinny jeans and I literally want them in EVERY style now. They are so comfortable and the fit is literally perfect.

FALL BEAUTY EDIT + A SEPHORA GIVEAWAY

RECREATE THE LOOK WITH: YVES SAINT LAURENT TOUCHE ECLAT FOUNDATION // NARS THE MULTIPLE IN ORGASM // NARS SEX MACHINE VELVET MATTE LIP PENCIL //  DIORSHOW MASCARA // YVES SAINT LAURENT TOUCHE ECLAT // ALTERNA BEACH WAVES SPRAY // BUTTER LONDON NAIL POLISH IN TOFF // STILA STAY ALL DAY 10-IN-ONE BEAUTY BALM // LANCOME BROW PENCIL

Fall is definitely my favorite season for beauty, maybe because my skin always tends to be on it’s best behavior. No more sunscreen clogged pores or irritation, for a few months my skin is bright and clear, not too dry or too oily. I love this look because it’s natural and easy to re-create. I’m all about a bold brow and natural wavy hair for fall. I just started using Yves Saint Laurent foundation and I absolutely love it. It gives skin that dewy natural finish without looking like you’re covered in makeup. To maintain those beachy waves after summer I always turn to Alterna beach waves spray. It doesn’t make hair crunchy or weigh it down but helps give you those natural beachy waves you get after a swim in the ocean. Subtly highlight cheekbones with Nars The Multiple in Orgasm and finish with the Lancome Brow Pencil to define those brows. And speaking of beauty, I’ve teamed up with a great group of bloggers for a $300 Sephora gift card giveaway.

You can enter daily over the next 2 weeks and earn bonus entries by sharing the giveaway with your friends on social media. Good luck!

I got this drop waist dress from TJ Maxx for my cousin’s bachelorette party which had a Downton Abbey theme but I love it paired with ankle boots and a chambray button down for daily wear. Right about now is when I start transitioning my summer clothes into fall by layering them and pairing dresses with ankle boots. I’m usually not a fan of drop waist styles but I love the easy flowiness of this dress. Speaking of transitioning into fall, today is the last day to get 25% off Pipelime’s fall must haves. I love this t-shirt dressthese boyfriend jeans and these snake print pants.

Fall

J.CREW CROPPED COTTON SWEATER (ON SALE) // J BRAND HIGH RISE COATED SKINNY JEANS // EQUIPMENT COTTON BLOUSE // NINE WEST BOOTIE // J.CREW EARRINGS // NARS VELVET MATTE LIP PENCIL

I’ve been trying really hard not to talk about fall yet, it is still August, but after attending a few fall previews last week and hosting the fall collection event for Brahmin I have to admit I am starting to think about adding some pieces to my wardrobe. I love all of these items because they are perfect to wear now and will transition seamlessly into next season. Leather pants are just not happening in August, but these coated skinny jeans from J Brand are an awesome alternative. I’m also loving all of the booties at Sole Society right now and if you’re looking to do some fall shopping Piperlime has 25% off fall favorites until tomorrow with code MUSTHAVES. And if you’re looking for some more fall style inspiration here are a few recent posts on how to transition pieces from your wardrobe (1, 2, 3).
