Happy Monday friends! When I first got this gorgeous dress from Chicwish it reminded me of a Mexican riviera vacation outfit with a chic spin. Since I have no Mexican vacation in sight (womp womp) I did the next best thing and wore it for a casual day in this heat paired with black wedges. I love the colorful embroidery details and the flowy sleeves!
When thinking about the title for this post, "sophisticated casual" popped up and won me over. At first glance this outfit looks effortless, but each piece has something uniquely sophisticated about it.
I love the print and material of this lightweight blouse from Banana Republic (so necessary in San Diego's 80 degree weather) AND it's currently on sale! It also comes in another color while maintaining its gorgeous print.
My obsession with block heels continue as I add these babies from Banana Republic to my collection. Block/thick heels are much more comfortable for me to wear than thin heels so I'm starting to stock up as I head into fall. These in particular have exclusive padding and a cushioned insole which is music to my feet! To top it off I am loving this shade of deep green that can be worn in both summer and fall.
The Neiman Marcus Trend Report at Fashion Valley tends to be one of my favorite fashionable events here in San Diego as local fashion bloggers and stylists alike come out to brunch with a side of the upcoming season's trends. The tablescape is always on point and this time the berry hues in our food and flowers were an indication of what was to come.
NM Fashion Valley's own Style Advisor, Alex Yáñez, gives us the breakdown of each trend on the "NM list" by showcasing it in outfits (my favorite fashion language). Here is what is on the NM Trend List for Fall. I have also linked up products within each category if you want to see more on the trend.
I can't wait until fall to partake in these trends! No really, as you can see I'm already all about the berry hues and the chokers! See the details of my outfit here. What trends are you excited to try this fall?
Women’s suits don’t need to be reserved just for the office, with a color or print change you can rock the suit in a chic way during those “off duty” hours. This suit screams fall with its rich burgundy hue (keep in mind that you can restyle each piece into other outfits). The fit is just as important, I like that the blazer and trousers are fitted and the material is comfortable! I added a simple choker to give the outfit a younger touch (but between you and I it was making me feel claustrophobic lol).
