Ahhhh end of August, where the days become shorter and our sleeves get longer. Some women get sad about it, but we just use it as an excuse to shop and repurpose summer clothes! Think- long sleeves with short bottoms, tights under shorts, casual leather jackets over maxis & of course sandals paired with jeans.
We had the chance to hang out & shoot with Brazilian style maven Henrietta Prioste & our creative director Valerie Duardo brought her summer to fall transition vision to life. With golden amber hues, off the shoulder tops and leather chokers & shoes, these looks are not ones to miss & can definitely be recreated using items from your own closet, RIGHT NOW!
Don't mind Henrietta just waving buh-bye to summer.
What we love most about this look is how so many elements make it either more summer or fall centric, but combined it turns into a transition outfit where both seasons meet. For example, these mint green sunnies give this a totally whimsical, summer hippie vibe where the brown & black leather heels lets people know- homegirl is ready just in case the temperature drops by 10 degrees. If you were to remove the shoes & choker, its totally a HAWT summer look. You get our point- mix & match your wardrobe and make it your own!
Next, we leaned more towards summer while introducing more earthy tones that say- 'Fall, I'm ready for you' paired with accents that can still flirt with summer vibes.
Henrietta's not quite ready to trade her ice coffee for a hot espresso- but her outfit is!
Although this may not quite be a pumpkin picking chilly outfit, it can easily become one with a staple denim or leather jacket.
Last but not least, the piece that stood out to us as the most memorable is for sure- you guessed it, the shoes!
We also don't want to rush the season, but rather embrace these winding down weeks. We like to rock our Line & Dot off the shoulder linen dress to chill out & focus on the important stuff in life- like how much longer we can wear this stuff until its chilly out.
This universally flattering dress (seriously, it looks great on everyone) and can easily be paired up with leather booties or flats for a more end of summer, early fall feel.
We will be adding our AMAZING fall collection to the site soon, so stay tuned. In the meantime, play with your wardrobe- say yes to shorts with long sleeve blouses, maxis with leather jackets and most importantly- have fun with it.
