Love Her Look | Summer Boldness + Fall Layers

I'm a bit bummed that summer is on the way out.  But, on the other hand, I'm secretly excited about layering and having the ability to wear voluminous curls without fear of frizz ruining everything I've worked so hard for.  

In preparation for fall, I'm compiling a short list of items needed to transition smoothly into fall.  This look serves as wonderful inspiration. First I'd like to procure a caped cardigan in a color that goes with practically anything.  I love the balance of the high waisted printed skinnies and plunging top with the oversized cardigan.  The fringed handbag adds a little bit of edge.  If you aren't careful, you could end up going too frumpy with oversized outerwear which is makes it imperative to have the right accessories to compliment your look.

It's been a while since I've had a pair of black wedges in my shoe collection. But in my quest to appear somewhat put together, I find myself lamenting my past decision of wearing  heels to do anything more than a quick trip around the block.  My hope is that wedges will allow me to achieve the height I desire, while being stylish and pain free.   

And can we talk about how flattering her printed skinny trousers are? Years ago, if you would have asked me to buy a pair of high waisted pants with a bold print, I would have called you crazy.  But now,  I'm liking the option of trading out a floral skirt floral trousers.  I already have one pair of black + white tribal print skinnies that I adore, now it's time to venture into the world of color.

Lastly, can we talk about her wonderful hair styling.  The fullness is enviable, which serves as our reminder to do a little bit of trimming as the new season rolls in.  Fall season could mean and increase in shedding. When our ends are nice and trimmed, we have an easier time removing the shed hairs thereby warding off tangles. 

What I love most about this look is how wearable it is.  If you want to be a little more modest, the top can easily be switched out for a tank or basic tee.  Again, just pair a little something edgy and unexpected with your look to keep it fresh and modern.  Are you loving this look as much as I am?
