HIYA & HAPPY NEW YEAR babes! I’m heading into 2019 full of love and inspiration. First, I want to thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown me & the blog in 2018, it means so much.
We all know that fall and winter easily take the cake for the best trends (whether we admit it or not… it’s the truth like YES, give me all the layers!) A little late but, I have rounded up the top fall trends that you NEED to have in your wardrobe this season. I’m not sure if it’s the coziness of the materials, the tones, or the actual pieces themselves but, I genuinely believe this is the time for everyone to get their Pinterest-y style on lock.
Let’s get the obvious one out the way, animal print. More specifically leopard and snakeskin. I’ll admit that at first, I wasn’t into it. To be honest, it was almost unavoidable online and at stores so… I gave in, and clearly, I was happy about it. I wanted to embrace the fall vibes so, I pulled out my leather jacket, put on my favorite pair of black booties, and cinched in my waist with a belt, and I was ready to go.
Next up, chunky sneakers. This is the trend I know a lot of people dislike but I promise you, once you buy in you won’t regret it. I went with the Yeezy wave runners and I SWEAR, I wear these babies multiple times a week. A added bonus, they go with everything and they’re so comfortable.
Last but not least, a good leather jacket. Obviously this one is self explanatory and goes with E V E R Y T H I N G… clearly it’s the common denominator in all of my looks. This one goes without saying and should truly be in your wardrobe 24/7. Also, I know polka dots were all the rage in summer but, I’m still so obsessed.
There are many more trends that I can’t wait to share but for now, these are the ones you need to get a hold of.
Back to school season is in full swing and let me tell you, I am PUMPED. A new school year in my head means a chance to reinvent yourself and your wardrobe. Back to school season has always been my favorite time of year to shop, mainly because fall is on its way and the clothes get’s SO much better(😍). I wanted to try and keep all the looks affordable, simple, and easy to access if you wanted to recreate them so Target was my one stop shop.
Comfort is a must when I’m sitting in class for three hours at a time; and what’s comfier than an oversized hoodie and sneakers? Exactly, nothing! Minimal effort but still really cute. The best part about this look is that it’s just an oversized men’s hoodie. To be honest, I find myself gravitating towards men’s clothes pretty often; trust me always do some digging in the men’s section at store’s you’d be surprised at what you find! For shoes I picked up my pair of Converse that have been sitting in the back of my closet for a few months and realized, THEY GO WITH EVERYTHING! So, I based most of the looks around the sneakers.
Look two was by far my favorite outfit. This look was what I call “edgy meets street” its completely different compared to what I usually wear, and it made me feel the most confident. To be honest, I’ve never really stuck to one style; I wear what feels right, and this 100% did. Never be afraid to test different looks and styles you’d be surprised at what you end up liking. Street style is such a huge trend that it’s easily become a favorite of mine, especially because the Midwest is urban and laid back.
I can’t stress how much I live by sets. Especially when I’m in a rush to get to class. If you don’t have any matching set’s in your wardrobe yet, please get a few! It’ll make your morning routine so quick if you already know what outfits look good together.
Stepping away from the street style, i went for something a little more girly. I just want to say, even though I was born in the middle of the 90’s I love all the trends. Especially the gingham and plaid, the clueless vibe was unavoidable while shopping. So, I decided to class up the final look and embrace my inner Cher Horowitz. This skirt is so easy to pair with literally anything. Originally had this skirt paired with a band tee and I LOVED IT! But, I didn’t get photos, so this was second best, and I think it still worked. Adding the jean jacket makes the look more casual which is perfect for school. I went for booties with this look to keep the girly vibe but, easily interchangeable if that’s not your style.
Hopefully after reading this you feel daring enough to try something new this season! Let me know which look is your favorite, and one you’d love to try and recreate!
I’ll be the first to say, neutrals are my go-to tones. Honestly, 8/10 times I’m wearing black or white.
