The weather is really playing games with us here in Northern Virginia. After the cooler temperatures two weekends ago, I was convinced we would be welcoming an early fall. Alas, it was nearly 90 degrees yesterday so it seems that we may have to wait a few more weeks for fall to stick around. Since I can’t experience fall quite yet, I have been dreaming of all the fall layers, fabrics and cute accessories non-stop. Today, I am rounding up a few of my favorite fall finds under $100.
Before heading to NYFW, I was on the hunt for a midi length dress that was comfortable enough to take me from morning to evening while in New York. We were only going to be in the city for two full days, the days were going to be long and jammed packed. Needless to say, we fit a lot into a little over 48 hours in the city: from a stop at rewardStyle’s NYFW headquarters and the new LTK wall, shows, a showroom visit and of course some tourist activities, we were non-stop. Today it’s all about my NYFW recap along with outfit details from day 1. Apologies in advance for a picture-heavy post!
One of my favorite things about welcoming a new season is adding new colors to my wardrobe. And although these shades of blue aren’t typically associated with fall, I have been falling for blues of all shades in anticipation of the new season.
Each fall, there is an “it” color of the season. For me, I typically gravitate towards green, camel and burgundy in the fall. But this year, there is one color in particular I have my eye on. I think it’s safe to say I’ve found my fall color crush: rust.
I am sure you are starting to sense a common theme around here. Yes, I will confess. I have a ruffle problem. And the funniest thing is until last year, I never really liked them! Ruffles of the past, in my opinion, were over the top girly and often seemed overwhelming. Which I realize is ironic since this lilac ruffle sleeve cardigan has some pretty big sleeves.
Styling a white blouse is one of the easiest ways to take a piece from season to season. As I mentioned last week, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has a tendency to give you unrealistic ideas about what month it actually is! I found myself telling my hair stylist yesterday that my hair was getting too blonde and we needed to darken it for fall. He looked at me like I was crazy and said, “Rachel, it’s the first day of August!” Needless to say, I have fall on my mind! In an effort to stay season appropriate, I wanted to share two looks today that incorporate the same white eyelet top styled for summer and fall.
The combination of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and the cooler temperatures this week have me counting down the days until fall. One color that I have been loving and wearing since January is green. I had high hopes for this shade when it was announced as the Pantone Color of the Year and it has not disappointed. I’m so excited to share today’s fall color inspiration with you because it’s a shade that continues to grow on me (and in my closet!). All of these pieces are perfect for transitioning from summer to fall.
With the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in the books, it really has me ready for fall. After searching the sale up and down for the past week, it’s amazing how many pieces come back each year. These reoccurring pieces are typically clones from previous seasons, but sometimes they have a slightly different design. Today, I’m talking about four fall favorites on sale during this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
The sale itself can be overwhelming: not only in the quantity of sale items but also in the publicizing of the event (especially in the blogging world). For a different take on the sale, I’m sharing my top 10 must-have items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with you today. I’ve selected some of the best deals, closet staples and pieces that I already own so you can add them to your closet this fall. A few of these items are already in my cart!
