Playing with color is a huge part of fall dressing that I love.
Bold socks and leggings make spicing up a look for the chillier weather so much easier. HUEmakes some of the best colorful tights, socks, and leggings out there with a barely-there feel and innovative design.
Fall is officially here . . . the crispiness in the air is undeniable and so refreshing. I don’t know how to explain fully the feeling of when one first feels, hears and sees the signs of fall. It’s like going back in time and being a child again. Nostalgic about getting ready for the first day back to school. My book bag full of papers and binders and pencils and erasers and highlighters. Wishing myself luck that all will go well. Excited and scared at the exact same time. Today, as an adult, I still feel these same sort of feelings, except they are also very different. An investment leather jacket on my back that won’t just last me a school year, but an entire lifetime instead. This one by See by Chloe from Farfetch was a gem in a goldmine, and as soon as I saw it, I knew it should be mine. I feel excited and scared for the new season, too, but my goals are bigger and more far spread. And things feel much closer to me, and much more graspable. Even if the air is chilly, my thoughts are warm, and my body is, too. Thanks to Farfetch, keeping warm also means being chic.
You know how much the Suarez Sisters love our Tevasandals! They hold so many memories for us. From our crazy road trips through the south from New Orleans to Alabama and Tennessee, to those muddy days camping out at Bonnaroo. Oh, and we cannot forget hiking through the jungles of Costa Rica. I can count on them for just about any travel escape that involves what I love most about these past summer months…like hiking, surfing, and exploring. For me, they represent freedom. The freedom to slip them on and be adventurous, feeling closer to the earth, and inspired to try new things. The amazing thing about Teva sandals is transitioning them from summer’s hot sweaty days in the sun, to a chic stroll down the tree-lined streets of Central Park in the city. That’s when SOCKS N’ SANDALS come out to play for us. It’s a trend that Dylana and I absolutely love. We love anything that is completely unexpected, fun, and makes a statement. With the right outfit, it totally works. See how we styled our Teva flatforms and sandals for 5 of our favorite fall activities. It’s a totally refreshing new take on the socks n’ sandals trend that’s hit the runways and we can’t get enough of it.
Saks Fifth Avenue has got me covered this fall when it comes to keeping me stocked up on all my statement pieces for the season. Every time fall comes around, I can’t help but gravitate towards tomboy looks and warm, earthy colors. All while still keeping my femininity, of course . . . hence, the silky slip dress by Tanya Taylor. Look at how boyish the slip feel with this out of this world 3.1 Phillip Lim light puffer jacket in cargo. The contrast is so extreme, but at the same time, so perfect. As you can see, color combinations are so key in the fall. As long as you got that, you can pull off just about any look I believe! Marc Jacobs patent leather boots . . . how else can I stomp through autumn leaves like a bad ass? And this Chloe bag fits right in with the theme with pops of wine and marigold. The only think missing is a pumpkin spice latte in my right hand, don’t you think?
