Hello again to all of our amazing readers and customers!
Anyone else smell pumpkin spice lattes or is it just me??? Maybe it's too soon but I can't help myself! Summer is fading and fall is approaching faster than ever. Yes, yes, yes, I know it's still hot outside but it's the south! In true Louisiana fashion, you've probably realized that our weather never cooperates with our fashion trends. However, the trends for this transition period are literally some of the BEST I've seen in all my years of retail so I cannot help but go ahead and start rocking boots and cropped sweaters. In the wise words of, Rachel Zoe, (my idol), "Style is a way to show who you are without having to speak." This my friends, is my life motto and I think it's the perfect statement to sum up the trends for transitioning into fall.
Regardless if it's 98 degrees, (cue Nick Lachey's iconic voice), it's time to pull out those transition tones and get your ankle boots ready. The perfect transition outfit for me would be a great pair of high waisted jeans, a cropped sweater with the sleeves rolled up, and some snakeskin ankle boots. I think it hints at being ready for fall but doesn't cross the line of screaming "hot chocolate and fires."
Transition season is all about keeping your color schemes and patterns light and playful but wearing the right garments. Pairing a crisp white blouse back with a dark denim and then a pop of an olive bootie is ideal. Also, turning towards those warmer tones when it comes to dresses and tops will get you the perfect transition look. Corduroy is HUGE this year and I'm ALL ABOUT IT. From pants, to jumpers, to mini dresses it's all the rage. Be still my heart because FLARE JEANS ARE BACK AND I'M OVER THE MOON! Maybe I was born in the wrong era, but flares are my GO-TO when it comes to the perfect transition pant. Pair any basic top with a pair of flare jeans and you can easily go from day-to-night in the drop of a second with a change of accessories.
Speaking of accessories, statement pieces and layered chain necklaces are also a HUGE trend for this season. Accessories, are in my opinion, one of the best pieces to a lady's wardrobe. Simple and understated tops can be transformed into glamorous blouses with the right earrings, necklaces, and of course the perfect shoe and handbag. We also received some amazing ranch style hats and newsboy caps to add some extra sass to your accessory collections. Every girl needs a good hat, (especially for those bad hair days), and we have some amazing ones in stock right now!
