Back to School

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year...”—No, not because football season has started (well maybe it is! All HAIL to the lovely BURGUNDY and GOLD of course ;) lol—but because it’s back to school time and the fall fashion season has begun! I look forward to the new trends every year, and I must say these fall/winter trends did not disappoint. Plaids, back packs and Wool Panama Hats oh my! I’m in fashion heaven. Luckily for you, we have them all and much more!
First, I can’t stop gushing over the oversized Jade Scarf that are on everyone’s MUST HAVE list. This scarf is everything you need and more. It comes in all different colors and prints, but of course my absolute FAVORITE is the plaid print. It’s traditional, classic and can be worn with any outfit. Plaid tends to make an appearance every fall season but this year it’s bigger than ever and I couldn’t be more excited!

 

The Blanket Scarf is all the rage and it’s mostly because of its versatility. One of my favorite ways to wear it is with an oversized kilt pin. Yes, ladies, a kilt pin! For those looking for a different way to pin your scarf aside from using a traditional brooch, this is an affordable yet trending way to do so! After purchasing you’re newly sought after blanket scarf, you MUST pair it with a Wool Panama Hat, Fringe Back Pack and Skinny Leather Belt.

 

 

 

Ladies, when I tell you this belt is AMAZING it is simply just that! It clinches your waist right where you want it, giving you a very flattering look. Im all for the best look to show off my waist line haha! You will fall in love with this look and not to mention each accessory in and of itself! Trust me, having these three items for your fall wardrobe are essential for any lou lou fashionista. Make sure you check out our website to see the many ways to wear the blanket scarf along with all the new arrivals for fall!

    2. Circular Shades

Snatch up a bold accessory to take your outfit to greater heights! Be brave! Be bold! Make a statement!

    4. Structured Topper
    There’s nothing like adding a structured topper to your outfit to really make you stand out. Velvet and felt are the fabrics for fall and we are going bananas for the bold and beautiful hats that we’ve seen gracing the fall/winter runways this season! This accessory can be so unbelievably versatile! Pair them with a long boho skirt and a fringe handbag or with jeans and a tank for a go to look for fall! This look is classy and chic and you’ll look absolutely to die for!

    Get Stacked!

    Bracelet: an ornamental band or circlet for the wrist or arm or, sometimes, for the ankle.

    A great way to change your look from day to day is with bracelets! Depending on my mood, I wear anything from beaded, to bangles, to leather versions of this fantastic accessory. We have hundreds to choose from online and in store. Stacking these great pieces of jewelry on your wrist is a must do! We have several styles to wear depending on the look you want to achieve.
    A great group of bracelets, rich in color and texture, to wear during this transitional time from summer to fall are the following: Amethyst wire bracelet, touch of gold wrap bracelet, and the circle bangle bracelet in antique gold. This trio looks fabulous!! Amethyst is my birthstone and I love this purple color. This is a casual look that can be pulled off by anyone. I love the antique gold which is a huge trend for jewelry this fall!
    Amethyst wire& touch of gold wrap & circle bangle bracelet

     

    Another lighter but luxe look is grouping the following: Quartz stone wire bracelet in orange, three fleur bracelet in brown, and the seed bead stretchy bracelet in gold. These look gorgeous together! I love how expensive this combination looks, yet each cost $18 and under! This also can be worn now and into the fall season. It would look great with a chunky, ivory knit sweater and jeans.

     

    Lets step it up a notch! Heading to a cocktail party? The following assortment looks extravagant: Tassel cuff bracelet, two twisted wire bangles with square stones, the wire bangle with square buckle stone and the white savoie bracelet. What a beautiful mix these make!

     

    These suggestions are only the tip of the iceberg. We have so many bracelets to choose from. There is no wrong way to stack them! Find your personal style through this easy trend for all ages.

    With Optimism, Pamela
