Happy September! Fall is quickly approaching, and I thought it would be fun to take a look back and share some of my favorite outfits and trends of summer. It’s interesting to see all of these looks together because I can totally see a common theme – lots of blues and greys, lots of ruffles, and of course my block heel besties!
– Big Bows –
This green seersucker beauty is one of my favorite skirts ever. I love the color and the texture, but the bow detail is my favorite part. It’s just so much fun, and definitely a head turner! It’s still available in a few sizes, and also comes in black. You could definitely wear it during the fall transition with a longer sleeved top. This off the shoulder striped top is still available, too!
– Embroidered Denim –
Embroidery was HUGE this summer, and this trend will continue into the fall as well. I snatched up this cute embroidered denim skirt during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and it is on sale yet again at 50% off! How cute would this be with a chunky sweater and tights during the fall? This ruffle tee is also on sale for under $18, and comes in a pretty light pink as well!
– Fruity Prints –
If you don’t wear a fruity printed dress during the summer, you’re not doing it right. I am still so obsessed with this lemon print dress. It just makes me happy! Unfortunately, it sold out a few months ago, but this lemon print wrap dress is equally adorable.
– Ruffles –
Ruffles are everywhere you look this summer, and I’m not mad about it! From ruffled skirt hems, to ruffled collars and sleeves, it’s safe to say they have taken over and will be sticking around during the fall, too. I loved this trendy take on a typical pencil skirt. You just can’t go wrong with stripes and cascading ruffles!
– Gingham –
I got bit by the gingham bug this summer, and I’ve never been so excited to look like a picnic tablecloth. I have seen so many cute gingham pieces lately, but this blue gingham dress is still my fave. The color, the fabric, the length – simply perfect.
– Colorblock –
This maxi skirt is actually the only colorblock item I own, but I love it so much I am keeping an eye out for some more colorblock pieces for fall. I am obsessed with the soft pastel colors, and it pairs so perfectly with a simple white tee and my blue Dagne Dover bucket bag. It’s definitely the most comfortable of all my summer outfits, and it is on sale right now for 50% off!
