October has finally arrived, and I'm already thinking about all the Fall activities taking place this month: costume shopping, pumpkin carving, candy eating, and maybe...a Texas road trip! First things first, I'm excited to wear some fall colors! When I visited a downtown park in Houston, I was shocked by the huge amount of blooming flowers surrounding me. By coincidence, I wore bright, contrasting colors that stood out from the garden backdrop.
Although I'm still wearing light fabrics, I incorporated Fall colors by wearing a burnt orange chiffon blouse with a pleated neckline and sleeves. I especially adored the tied bow in the front! With a nude tank top underneath, I tucked in the flowy blouse with a neon pink, lace skirt. I absolutely adore the vibrancy and feminine details of my skirt- such a striking contrast to my blouse! Not only did the clothing pieces look surprisingly bold together, the color scheme coincidentally fit well with the colorful garden setting!
Now that New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is over, I am having withdrawals from all the runway and street style looks that have graced the internet and fashion industry this past week! Can we please petition for NYFW to become New York Fashion Month so I don't have to miss it every season? Luckily, my friend and fellow blogger, Natalie Szczechowski from @herpersonatalie, and I will recreate three looks from three designer runway collections. We'll also share some tips and tricks to incorporate high fashion style into your everyday wardrobe. Let's begin:
Have you ever wanted to doll yourself up for no reason? Maybe you wanted to explore a city with no itinerary? If you say yes, then that's exactly how I felt when I styled this flirty, casual look. To my surprise, I found a lovely spot in a downtown park with Houston photographer Irene Santos.
I absolutely adore floral dresses! I especially love how my dress is made of polyester fabric. It felt so lightweight and comfortable when I wore it outside. Plus, the dress structure is loose fitting as it drapes down to a high-low hemline. It's one of my perfect go-to dresses for a sunny daytime look!
Returning to Houston means that I'm constantly searching for ways to be stylish while not looking sweaty from the extreme heat! I really enjoy wearing rompers because the fabrics are lightweight, and they come in so many trendy prints for the summertime. Plus, I love that it's a one-piece outfit, which makes it easier to get ready in the mornings! The romper I'm wearing has a fun, bohemian print that is off-the-shoulder with a cinched waistline.
Remember when gladiator sandals were a huge trend? Well, I'm still rocking it with my wedged Steve Madden sandals. The sandals give me extra height while comfortably walking around all day! I've owned these sandals for so many years, and they are still a staple shoe item in the summertime.
