Can you believe how fast this summer is flying by!

August means there are just a few more weeks until Fall, so it’s time to start thinking of ways to transition your wardrobe. Since denim is a pretty universal wardrobe staple, that is the place to start. The right denim pieces will take you from the end of summer through mid-Fall with ease. I’m not at all ready to think about Fall trends, but denim is something you can always refresh. If you are looking to make a few basic updates on a budget, here are my picks for the denim wardobe updates you need to make, all under $100!

Denim Skirts and Dresses Under $100

Skirts and dresses are a staple for me and can easily be styles for summer and Fall! I love the easy breezy a-line skirts and flowy dresses and they will look just as stylish with a tank as they will with booties and sweaters. Pinafore dresses are also super chic, and work well for Fall when layered with a sweater underneth or blazer on top.

Transitonal Jeans Under $100

My go- to silhouette these days is the mom jean. It’s comfy, fashionable and looks just as good with sneakers as it does with sexy heels! If you don’t have a pair in rotation, definitely add one to cart asap. I also love playing with printed jeans and fun silhouettes, like the dramatic flare leg ones from Free People below!

Denim Jackets Under $100

As the temps cool down you’ll need to make sure you can top of your look in style. A jean jacket is a classic finishing piece, but there are so many fun ways to spice them up. I love the stylish puff sleeve silhouette on this Revolve one, and the fun color of this lilac baby. If you are feeling adventurous, go for a fun festival inspired print. Or keep it classic with a simple blue number that will go with everything!

Remember Fall will be here way before you know it! What trends are you most excited about for the new season?

Meow! The Perfect Leopard Dress

Leopard Maxi Dress

Leopard is having a moment! From the runways to every street style post seen over NYFW, the print is suddenly back in fashion. I’ve always been a huge fan of leopard print clothing, so it’s nice to see it making a comeback in so many new ways. I love seeing new takes on this hot print on tops, dresses, skirts, jackets, and of course shoes and accessories!

Maxi dresses are another go to of mine! I got this amazing leopard maxi dress from Boutique Feel, after seeing it on Pinterest and I love the silhouette. It is a statement making one, with the semi low-cut neckline and sheer, flowing bottom.

Leopard Maxi Dress

I layered it with a black bralette just for a bit of coverage but you can definitely leave that out, especially if you are hitting the town for a night out. Just add a classic handbag and killer shades and you are all set. And when the temps cool off you can rock it with a jacket or cardi layered on top or a long sleeve knit underneath.

New Season, New Boots

Boot season is about to kick off ya’ll!

I know I’ve had a hard time letting go of summer, but I’m trying to move on and get excited about the new season. One of the best ways to do that is shopping, especially for shoes obvi. Nothing screams Fall like new boots, and one boot trend I’m loving right now is over the knee boots. Since I’m not giving up dresses and can’t even deal with shopping for tights right now, they are going to be my go-to style for the next few weeks.

A stylish over the knee boot just makes getting dressed pretty much a no-brainer. Throw them on and then just add a cute dress, like this one from Material Girl and you’re done! You can also style them with leggings and an oversized sweater. Denim boots, like these Steve Madden’s, are perfect because you can rock them with anything. Just treat them like you would your favorite pair of skinny jeans.  I’m also super into nude over the knee boots. They are versatile, give the look and feel of bare legs, but have a seasonally appropriate twist.

Check out my fave OTK boots for Fall, including the boot I’m wearing above and the Saint Laurent crystal studded ones that were EVERYWHERE during Fashion Week! Even though the weather isn’t typical for late Sept/early Oct, add to cart now so you’ll have these delivered before temps start to drop next week! And let me know your favorite ways to wear them!

Furry Monsters

I've had these shoes for years, but just don't let them out to play too often. They have a tendency to steal the show with the wild combination of tiger print hair and shocking blue tuft of fox fur.  I kept the look simple with a Topshop crop top and Reiss pencil skirt. I have noticed furry details popping up a lot lately on shoes and accessories, so I'm happy my furry little monsters are finally back in fashion. 

Shop some of the cutest furry shoes I've seen on some of my favorite retailers for Fall!
