Summer Edition: Lace Ups & Basic Denim

The leaves have started to crisp into browns, yellows and reds. Soon enough your wardrobe will start to adapt to the hues of Autumn. As I wrap up this Summer, I see it fitting to include a taste of Summer with a glimpse of Fall. Fall is lovely with its seasonal flavors and beautiful landscape. So why not embrace this beauty that was gifted to us, and display it with style?

Below features an outfit with the very basics that you will want this Fall. From denim to a neutral handbag, you can’t go wrong!

Summer Edition: Pink Leather and Blue Dress

Even though it’s still technically Summer, the weather here in the Northwest has seemed to flip the ‘on switch’ for Fall. It’s a funny thing living here in Oregon, experiencing three months of sunshine and then nine months of rainfall. This combination produces a beautiful landscape of vivid colors. From this, I have decided to draw seasonal outfits based on the display of colors Oregon has to offer.

The outfit featured below is all things Forever 21. Between the pricing and trends, Forever 21 has to be one of my favorite places to shop both in-store and online. I have found online stores produce better prices and styles. Some frequent online stores I visit are Romwe and SheIn. Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom and shop the look!

Is it a dress? Is it a romper? It’s a two piece set! One of the latest and greatest trends that features a short and top combo. It’s so wonderful that newer trends aren’t just taking into account style, but comfort as well. These two piece outfits are all around amazing. Not only does this two piece combo complete one outfit, but each of the pieces can be featured in other outfits as well. Think of it as a three-in-one. You have yourself a packaged deal!

Spring Edition: Denim Joggers

So you may be thinking that joggers are something you wear to bed. A jammie perhaps. What you didn’t know, is there are joggers that suit your every day style with the same comfort that your nighties have! Who wouldn’t love that? It is important to remember that style doesn’t always have to mean discomfort. Afraid of heels? There are brands with heels that are MADE for comfort… BornClarks, Cole Haan, and many many more. It just goes to show that you too can find the harmonious line between comfort and style. Another huge addition to this, you can also incorporate price. It’s the whole package!

Spring Edition: Pink Pastel Denim

So thrilled to share these uber cute pastel skinny jeans with you! I have been on the hunt for a flattering colored denim like these, and thanks to thrift shopping and trading, I was able to scoop up a pair! I was pleased to find these for only $6 through consignment. Now you may be like many people I know who find shopping to be painful and sweaty and treacherous… Especially in a thrift store. Thankfully for you there are plenty of opportunities to score jeans like these with the help of online shopping.

A price of $6 consignment was worth the trip for me, but don’t stress if you find comfort through online shopping. There are plenty of great deals for you to find! These Forever 21 jeans were just a piece of the whole enchilada. Keep scrolling to enjoy the rest!
