Boho Bottoms


maxi 1/2/3/4/5/6

What better way to frolic around the festival grounds than in these beautiful bohemian bottoms? I love keeping my tops simple (a.k.a. a solid bikini/crop top), so I really want to have a fun print in a maxi skirt or pant to stand out. All of these printshave a tribal-floral feel going on, which make for the perfect festival fashions. Plus, I can wear any of these pieces well into summer with a lacy tank or graphic tee.

Which prints will you be rocking this festival season?

NYFW Trends to Try for Fall

Even though social media feeds are teeming with pictures from London, I am still stuck on the sights and sounds of New York Fashion Week, showcasing the collections for Spring/Summer 2014. Yes, all of this eye candy, and it’s not even available until next year!

But I spied some trends that I just couldn’t wait until the New Year to try, so here are some highlights from some of my favorite shows, and how to incorporate them into your wardrobe for fall.

Beauty Trend | Nicole Miller: 

The Nicole Miller S/S 14 Show was a Romantic Gothic dream with pieces inspired by the beauty of Versailles. The bold patterns, stained-glass prints, and glittery du jour were the perfect ingredients for a luxe holiday in France. But the pièce de résistance – in my opinion – was the beauty look. The perfect balance of bold and feminine, the NM girls rocked a barely there coral eye, rich plum lip, and wraparound crown braids.

How-to for Fall: 

With rich olives and burgundies already on the trend list, a plum lip isn’t too far from the fall color palette. One of my fave West coast bloggers, Gal Meets Glam, recently perfected her own plum lip with a purple stain under a golden-pink gloss coat. I can’t wait to give this a go with an olive pant and easy neutral pullover.

Fashion Trend | J. Crew

With bright hues and killer prints, J. Crew took a cue from the West Coast and revivied a seriously cool version of the “Aloha” print. Always a fun mix of casual and classic, J. Crew gave their audiences a wholly helping of outfit inspiration by juxtaposing crisp whites and clean lines alongside bold graphic elements. The California girl in me was oohing and aahing over pieces like a stylized tsunami sweatshirt and bright matchy-matchy separates. One silhoutte I’m hoping to mimic in my wardrobe this fall is the full skirt and tucked in graphic tee {right}.

How-to for Fall:

Any easy wearing sweatshirt or pullover will do, but I’m seeing some seriously creative ways up the ante for fall. You can go simple with a graphic tee (loving the selection from Lovers+Friends) and blazer combo tucked into a fuller skirt paired with a ballet flat, or go fun and play up your sporty side like this fashionista captured by Refinery29. It’s all about accessories with this one, so don’t be afraid to add some serious glam!
