What I Want August

1 (50% off!)/2/3/4/5/6/7/8

Happy Friday!!  What are you guys up to this weekend?  I'm celebrating my good friend's birthday and catching up some friends I haven't seen in a long time.  

I used to love back-to-school shopping to see what the trends for the coming year would be.  Now that I'm no longer in school, I still love fall fashion with the cozy sweaters, great boots, and luxurious fabrics.  Fortunately or unfortunately, the weather will still be warm hot here in Atlanta for a while, so I'm looking for on-trend pieces that I can wear now, but will seamlessly transition to fall.

Athletic inspired clothing is a big trend for fall and I love this quilted baseball jacket for cool fall evenings.  It will be great layered over a t-shirt now and perfect with a sweater and boots later.

Gray is another trend that I'm ready to embrace.  Light gray doesn't look great on me, so a pair of gray jeans is the perfect way to embrace this trend.  I don't like to wear black denim in the summer, so gray is a great compromise which will look fabulous in fall as well.

Finally, leather is another trend that I'm so excited about.  I'm just warning you guys that you will be sick of all of the leather pieces that I want for fall.  I may or may not have already purchased this Banana Republic pleated leather skirt after finding out that it isn't included in the Friends and Family this weekend.  It is so soft and flattering.  I highly recommend it and can't wait to wear it!

What pieces/trends are you excited about?  Are you ready for fall fashion?

Have a great weekend!

  3. I am slowly anticipating fall. I absolutely love putting together outfits for fall and layering is my game. I bought a couple of varsity jackets since they're somewhat of a wardrobe staple. I really like the selection you have here.The top & skirt combo and the berry pumps are my favorites.

    PS: Have fun with your friends! x
