Playing With Texture & Color

Fall is officially here, but fall weather – not quite yet. These are some of the benefits of desert living.

As you can see I’m still in my summer outfits although I can’t wait to rock a pair of OTK boots. For now, I’m playing with texture, color and accessories (as usual). I’ve been looking for the perfect moto jacket since last year, and finally found this one at the end-of-summer Zara sale. The mustard color is great if you are looking to spice up a clean-cut or conservative outfit. Here I have style it with dark colors, so it stands out. This Forever 21 dress has pretty thin straps, but the texture makes it wearable during cooler seasons. I love pairing it with a long sweater or duster. To make the outfit complete, I added a neck scarf – and there you have the typical European look. 🙂

Stepping Into Fall With No Nonsense

Labor Day marks the end of summer although we are still enjoying triple-digit temperatures here in the desert. It’s a great time to start prepping for fall and snag some items on sale this weekend.

I personally like versatile pieces I can wear now while it’s still warm, yet pair with the necessary accessories during cooler weather. This No Nonsense Soft Twill Skimmer legging is a perfect example. I love the bright color – easily wearable during summer, while it’s soft and comfy and great for fall too. No Nonsense has an awesome variety of tights and leggings, which are must-haves for fall. Better yet, they are offering 30% off everything this Labor Day Weekend. Did I mention free shipping too? So, you can go ahead and add the missing pieces to your closet.

For this outfit, I paired the legging with Vince Camuto wedges and an old plain shirt. Adding a piece of jewelry definitely makes the outfit dressier. For fall, I would style it with a pair of nice booties and a leather jacket. Again, the possible combinations are endless.

Happy Labor Day Weekend!
