Fall Fashion Trend: Let There Be Layers

Fall Fashion Trend: Let There Be Layers

Wanna know what our favorite fall fashion trend is? Layering of course! Layering is the perfect solution to the slight chill in the air, lending itself to the changing climate over the course of the day. When there is a slight nip in the morning, a scarf and blazer take care of the cold, while they can easily be peeled off mid-day when the sun decides it doesn't want to let summer go quite yet.

Wrap necklaces are the perfect type of jewelry to rock with a layered outfit. You can add them with other necklaces, or let them stand out on their own. (They can handle it.)

Check out an easy (and affordable!) layered outfit below. Click on the links below the image to shop each article of clothing.

Fashion Board: That's Just Peachy

That's Just Peachy


Greet summer in this stylish and fun outfit, all in peach! The flowly blouse flirts beneath a hand-beaded, sequin collar necklace, and the elegant touches of a hand-held clutch and sparkling beaded anklet tie the whole thing together. As the season warms up you'll want an outfit that feels cool and easy, but without having to sacrifice style. Going with breezy skirts, strappy sandals, and nautical colors does the trick. (Not to mention: peach is one of the most decadent shades of them all. Don't you just want to eat this outfit up!?)

While the blouse featured in this fashion board is a steep $465 from Mulberry, and even the clutch will cost you a Benjamin from Shopbob, you can snag the handmade Peter Pan collar necklace for just $20 here, and the sparkling ankle bracelet for just $12 here.

Style Board: Goth in Green Outfit

Goth in Green



Embrace your rebellious sense of style and present a shockingly sexy ensemble in this dark green and black goth-inspired outfit. I love this style because it presents the right amount of dark edge with just the right touches of frilly femininity. Combat-style boots with heels, a corset bodice decorated in lace, and a short black skirt that fluffs out with tulle - what's not to love? To pull the outfit together, it is completed with green and black evil eye jewelry from Megan's Beaded Designs. This is a perfect set to wear around Halloween, or more likely, any time of the year you want to express your inner dark princess.

Embracing Summer Boho Style

  • Jul 8 2015

Not always the earliest of adopters when it comes to new fashion trends, I was hesitant to embrace the "Boho" phenomenon that was happening around me. Sure, I loved the big floppy hats, and, of course, the beaded jewelry, but I wasn't as sure about the leather fringe or the high-waisted pants. But then, as most fashion trends do, it began to grow on me.

Boho

Boho fashion isn't so hard to fall in love with when you think of the intentions behind it. Embracing who you are and allowing yourself to flow freely as your own person. It keeps in touch with nature and embraces the human form with a full flattering of its original state. I don't have to feel bad about not having time to do anything to my hair in the morning. With Boho fashion I don't have to wear a super-padded bra just to get clothes to fit me right. The easy accessories and loose-fitting garments welcome me, just as I am, no judgements.

So maybe it's just another passing fad, soon to be replaced by something else before we even knew what hit us. But for now, I'm going to enjoy every bit of it.

The wooden anklet featured in this blog post's collage is available here. Or you can shop all anklets here.
