Floral Dresses for Summer to Fall

Every few months I do a new round-up of floral dresses because I wear so many of them! A good floral print is always appropriate, for any season and occasion. This mock neck, A-line mesh floral dress is one of my favorites right now because it's perfect for this in-between weather. As I talked about in my post on how to make your wardrobe work for both seasons, it's always great for your wallet if you can buy pieces that work across both Summer and Fall.

Also this weekend is MEGA for sales so I shared my finds at the bottom of the post - there are some really good neutrals and basics!

Fall is almost here and it always fills me with a sense of excitement and new things to come. Something about that crisp air galvanizes me into action and I'm excited that we're already getting cooler mornings. Of course I also love Fall fashion and this year I find most of the season's fashion trends to be right up my alley! Today I wanted to focus on the velvet trend, which will be major this autumn - you may have noticed velvet popping up in stores everywhere. This material immediately says glam so if you're a fan of luxe you're as excited as I am about this trend! Today I'm sharing all my current velvet favorites in dresses, tops, bottoms and accessories.

3 Cutest Fashion Sneakers


I love my heels, mules, sandals, and boots but there's a certain kind of comfort that sneakers deliver that you really can't get from any other shoe. Comfort has always been super important to me in fashion but I'm not big on wearing gym sneakers around town so I've scoured what's out there for cute fashion sneakers and rounded up my 3 favorite pairs here today along with some styling suggestions for each!

I mostly live in casual outfits - dressy casual but casual nonetheless. And nothing finishes a casual look like a good denim jacket, especially since denim goes with anything. The last couple of years I've only had this one jean jacket so it was time to branch out. You can see the old jacket styled in this post if you're curious.

In this post I'm sharing 3 tips on how to build a work wardrobe that will wear well across both seasons.

It took me a while to get my favorite Fall buys from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale on the blog but here we are - finally. The sale goes until August 6 so there's still a little time to take advantage if you haven't already. In this post from a couple of weeks ago I shared all my #NSale early picks so you might recognize some of what I'm wearing here. I was so excited when I first saw this military-inspired jacket and gold pleated skirt in the sale and even more excited when they actually turned out to be as amazing in person as they look online. Both pieces are really standout and it's also great that they're pretty trend-proof.
