trends for today

As we enter one of my favorite times of the year (transitioning from summer to fall), I've started paying more attention to detail in an outfit than usual. It's my favorite time of year for fashion because I get to mash trends from opposing seasons; i.e. searing-hot summer and colorful, brisk autumn. 

AllSaints denim, Topshop blazer, J.Crew blouse, Alexander McQueen handbag, MIA cap-toe flats, Dorothy Perkins bracelet, Liz Palacios ring

Summery polka-dots and a light peach blazer keep this look August-appropriate, while incorporating some of my favorite trends for fall. I basically died over this Alexander McQueen chianti beauty as soon as I saw it. Definitely The Bag of all fall bags. I'm already addicted to fall's staple oxblood color.

Another trend I've been drawn to is baroque-inspired pieces. I find it so interesting to see how current events in the Baroque era translated into the extravagant jewelry design--scientific discoveries in astronomy and anatomy inspired symmetrical, infinite designs that surround theatrical jewels and gemstones. Love the pieces I incorporated into the outfit above!



Metallics are my other favorite. With so much wool, cashmere, and thick knit textures during fall, it's fun to spice up a look with a flash of metal here and there. The bronze-y silver cap toe on the MIA flats is just so good.

Loving these fall trends as much as I am?
