Trend Alert- Mad for Plaid

I’m beyond excited that fall has finally arrived. The last couple days have been so comfortable…it is so nice to get a break from that terrible humidity. One thing I love most about the fall weather is the fashion. Warm colors, layered looks, and fun prints…it doesn’t get much better than that.

This autumn you will find that plaid is super popular. Wear it in a skirt, a coat, or in your accessories…no matter how you fashion it you’ll look amazing and totally on trend. Here are some of my favorite plaid looks-

Trend Alert- The Denim Dress

I love nothing more than a trend that lasts over time. Right now denim dresses are all the rage! They are just such a classic look that I wouldn't even feel bad about spending a little more on one as I know this is a look that I could wear throughout the changing of seasons...and it will still be in style for years to come. Here are some of my favorites:

What I love most about denim dresses is that you can dress them up or dress them down. Wear them for work or for play. They are just so versatile. Who says that everyone needs a great pair of jeans? I think every gal needs a denim dress in their closet!

I'd love to know what style of denim dress is your favorite and how you'd wear it.

Trend Alert: Wide Leg Pants

I don't know how you guys feel, but I'm absolutely loving this wide leg pants trend. As you all know, I am way more into dresses than pants...but I can definitely see myself filling my closet with this look. It almost reminds me of the palazzo pants phase that took over my 8th grade. Ahhh, memories. Anyway, here are some of my faves---

Trend Alert: Casual Sneakers

To be 100% honest, I'm not a sneaker kind of gal. Never have been. However, over the last year or so I have been kind of obsessed with casual sneakers that I can pair with dresses. Living in NYC you walk a lot...and flimsy, summer sandals just don't cut it if you're walking more than a few blocks. One: your feet hurt, and two: your feet get so dirty. Trust me, it's gross.

Here are a few of my favorite causal sneakers that I think we all need in our closet...

I actually just picked up a basic pair of black Vans yesterday that I already can't get enough of. I know I'll be wearing them all summer and fall. They are so cute!

TREND ALERT- The Utility Jumpsuit

2018 is finally here and we're bringing in the new year with a must have trend: The Utility Jumpsuit. Yes, I know that wearing something that looks like coveralls is not everyone's cup of tea...but this is a simple item that will definitely give you some style points this year. Be sure to add a cute belt, pair of killer heels, or adorable tennis shoes to bring this look to the next level.

Here are some of my favorite utility jumpsuits that retail for under $120.
