With school starting and August coming to an end, it’s impossible not to think about Fall already. Clothing and style trends are already popping up all over the place and keeping informed is a definite must. It is always great to keep your closet stocked full of the basics but throwing in a few trendy pieces like a new baseball cap, leather jacket, and leopard flats is always a fun and easy way to welcome the cooler, cozy months ahead.

There are so many rules when it comes to getting dressed that it can be hard trying to remember them all. No black with brown, black with navy, or red with pink. In a normal situation it would seem that a coral colored skirt paired with a pink shirt would be one of those ultimate no-no’s.

There really aren’t any rules when it comes to pairing certain colors and textures together. Navy and black look really great together and so does white after Labor Day! I had this eyelet skirt on my mind back in Spring and the neon rose color is so eye catching that it gives such a great pop of color. As I stared into the abyss that is my closet, attempting to get dressed, this thistle-print popover begged me to pair the two together. It felt as though I was breaking one of those unspoken rules of style but rules are meant to be broken so I was more than happy to oblige.

Boyfriend tee shirts are so comfortable and the perfect thing to throw on the moment you get home from work and peel off those nylons. The perfect ones are usually found in the men’s department but can be a tad too large and a bit unflattering on their own.

However, with a few small tweaks they can be styled in such a way that they are a little more feminine and flattering. Here are the three easy steps to achieve the look.

1 / Roll up the sleeves (I do two rolls)
2 / Tuck in the front (loosen the sides and keep the back out)
3 / Throw on a necklace or scarf
4 / Done deal!

Easy peasy.

The first time I saw this skirt I absolutely, 100% fell in love with the fabric. My friends all think I’m crazy because I will pass on a piece of clothing if I rub it between my fingers and it just doesn’t feel right. This skirt is slinky and heavy and swishes and flows so perfectly that I knew it would be a great fabric to own.

The pattern, on the other hand, is a completely different story. It seemed too flashy for my comfort zone and I was convinced I couldn’t pull it off. My friend, however, insisted I needed it and since I trust her judgement, carried it around, weighing it over in my mind. Finally, I decided to bite the bullet and purchase it. I told myself I would wear it at least once because I knew I needed to branch out and wear more than just neutral shades. Turns out, this skirt is so fun to wear that now I wish could find it in every color.
