Fall Trends You Can Wear Now

Thank you to Lyst for sponsoring this post.

It's hard to believe, but it's already time to start planning our fall wardrobes. I'm in no way ready for the sunshine to go away, but I can't help but get excited about fall - especially with so many amazing fashion trends on the horizon. Blush, pumpkin spice and navy are all super hot colors for Fall, and even though it's not quite time to bust out the sweaters and boots, there are a few fall trends you can start wearing now. Today, I've teamed up with Lyst to share those with you.
1. Frayed Denim - The overly fringed cuff line has 1996 fall 2016 written all over it. The raw, undone look has been around for the past few years, but this exaggerated frayed hemline is new to the scene. I personally think the fringed cuff works best on cropped jean - making for a seamless transition from summer to fall. I'm loving this pair of frayed denim by 3 x 1.

2. Statement Choker - Another nod to the '90's, the choker has made a comeback in a big way. I love understated/simple chokers, but lately I've been gravitating toward statement chokers, and I've currently got my eye on this Isabel Marant choker.

3. Velvet - This fabric pretty much ruled the runways for fall 2016, so you can definitely expect to see this furry material popping up everywhere in the months to come. I'm currently crushing on these velvet dresses.

4. Leather - I mean, is it really ever out of style? No one really wants to even think about leather during the summer, but this blush leather mini skirt can definitely be worn now.

5. Off-the-shoulder anything: Tanks, dresses, sweaters, this early 2000's trend is making a big comeback, this fall.

6. Bohemian - Boho babes are no longer left behind in the summer. This trend continues well into the winter months, by pairing with booties and felt hats. I'm loving this long sleeved bohemian dress - it's only $30!!

You can be sure to see these trends popping up everywhere, this fall season, from high-end to budget friendly designers. I found all of these pieces at Lyst, which is a great example of high meets low, as you can shop everything from their site. When you're looking for a specific piece, I highly recommend checking Lyst out, and letting them do the footwork for you, versus spending hours searching across multiple platforms. The best part about Lyst, is that the more you use it, it begins to learn your shopping patterns and interests, and begins to curate your feed accordingly. You can even set up search to alert you when sales on your favorite items occur. (Something I particularly love getting notified on.)

Hope you all have the best weekend! Brandon and I are off to a wedding tomorrow near Denver, so we are going to stay up there and make a date night out of it. Tis the season for love!

Eyelet Top

Thanks to The Casery for sponsoring this post! As always, all opinions are my own.

I've been loving eyelet tops lately. They are so pretty and dainty and come is all types of styles. Today, I styled this eyelet top from Chicwish with marble accessories from Olive + Piper. I'm crazy about the tassel chain earrings, and the marble stoned necklace adds a super chic element, making it perfect for casual or dressier looks. 

Speaking of marble, did you see this marble case from The Casery? It's a good thing when your accessories can seamlessly match each other! I love how chic it is, and it's also such great quality. I must admit, it's the flamingo case (on sale for $20!) that I've had in rotation though. I mean, it's really no surprise right?

Blogger Nation: Kendra Scott

Last week I got an up close and personal look at the Kendra Scott Fall Collection, as I hosted a shopping party at their new Cherry Creek location, along with some of my favorite Denver Bloggers. I was so excited, because the fall line screams Colorado! I styled this choker and these bangles for the event, and I'm completely obsessed with them. I'm all about mixed metals this season, and the new KS line gets that. It's like the curated the collection for me. 

One of my favorite trends that is making a comeback, is the choker trend - and KS nailed it in their fall line. I picked up this one (pictured here) and am obsessed with the rose gold and gray granite stone. Another uber Colorado element of the new line, is the use of arrowheads. The collection is full of them, like this ring and pendant necklace. Although I'm in no way ready for summer to be over, I can honestly say that the fall Kendra Scott collection is giving me all the fall feels.

Stay tuned as I'm discussing more fall trends this week on the blog. Speaking of fall, did you see my post about the #nsale and how you can gain early access WITHOUT having to have the credit card? You don't want to miss it!

The BEST Of The #NSale + How You Can Gain Early Access

Ok, guys...I caved. After seeing everyone already shopping the Nordstrom sale (and eyeing all their goodies!) I had to get my hands on the goods. Being that I don't love credit cards though, I thought my hands were tied. Luckily, I discovered there's another way! Nordstrom offers a debit card that is linked directly to your bank account, so you don't have to open credit, and can still gain early access to the best sale of the year! Holla! You can apply here and get instant access, too.

 I'm sure you're wondering what all the hype is about, though. I mean, a sales a sale, right? WRONG! The reason the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is so great, is because it's the only sale that allows you to shop the NEXT season's items, allowing you to stock up on fall favorites beforehand, so you can enjoy them all season long.

All we have is a Nordstrom Rack in our Colorado Springs, so I have to take advantage of all the goodness of Nordstrom online. I snagged this sweater in a few colors (it comes in 7!), as well as these boots and these jeans. Below are some of the other items I'd buy, if I had an endless amount of money.

Floral Bomber

If you've seen this floral bomber on my IG feed a few times, it's for good reason - I can't stop wearing it! It's so edgy and cool, I can't even handle it. If you're in the market for a summer jacket, this crop jacket is a great summer piece. It works well for cool nights, and cold restaurants, alike. I'm especially crazy over the floral embroidery. It's another lovely piece from Larmoni (like this silk sheer dress).

 I recently jumped on the jean skirt trend, and I have to say I like it. This one is only $16, too.

Tommy Bahama: Quintessential Summer

There is something quintessential summer about linen pants. They instantly put me in a beach state of mind. Sadly, I'm no where near the beach, but try to make travel plans to get to one as often as I can! During the summer months, it's pretty easy to find summer attire, but when you're in need of lightweight wear and summery prints the rest of the year, a trip to Tommy Bahama will have you covered. Today, the Blogger Nation babes and I are back with the kick off of our summer series.

Can we just talk about these sandals for a second? I've been wearing them nonstop! (Last seen here.) They are so perfect for summer, and go with just about everything.  You already know I have mad love for the summer scarf, and this one is no different. It's soft and light-weight, but adds a nice touch to a plain tee. It's one of the best summer accessories, if you ask me!

So I Have This Thing With Flamingoes

It all started in January when we were in Cabo. I saw a flamingo for the first time, and I swear it was like seeing a freaking unicorn. I was mesmerized. Fast forward 4 months, and my flamingo love was revamped on a trip to Florida. On the flight back to Colorado, I watched "Southern Charm" on Bravo and one of the older debutant women threw a "Flamingo Party." It was decided then, that I would, too, throw a Flamingo Party. To solidify the idea, I went to the Dollar Tree later that day to get a party hat for Kygo's birthday and there was a whole aisle of flamingo party plates, cups, and decor. #MeantToBe Needless to say, I came home with a lot more than a party hat that day.
Ever since, I've been stocking up on flamingo printed pieces as often as possible. I'm crazy about this one from Chicwish. It's definitely a front runner for my flamingo-party-garb. ;)

Are you feeling flamingoes? If not, what are you obsessing over, lately? Hope you have a happy Friday!
