Street Style & OOTD

Pumpkin spice lattes, plaid everything, the crunch of crisp fall leaves … wait, what? It’s only August—and 90 degrees out!

This pretty much sums up my current state of mind, absorbed in everything autumn but conflicted because it’s still summer. So here are a couple of outfit ideas to help you transition from summer to fall and get excited for the upcoming season.

Outfit #1

Bp-ootd-fall

I think this is a pretty good balance of summer and fall. The denim skirt adds an autumnal touch, but it’s still very summery with its A-line cut.

Plus the colors in this top remind me of falling autumn leaves. Just remember to keep cool with lighter fabrics when wearing deep fall colors.

End-of-Summer OOTD

Just because the season is coming to an end doesn’t mean you have to stop wearing all your favorite summer clothes at once. In fact, I’d say you should wear them as long as you can—soon enough it will be time to start layering for the cold.

HERO

Tees | Shorts | Platform sandals

Clare (pictured here) and I are all about sticking to a neutral aesthetic when it comes to a go-to outfit. The weather this day was just warm enough for shorts but not too hot for a comfy tee. Plus, her chunky sandals are both fashionable and comfortable for walking around town.

So, last night was really a “Moment 4 Life.” Seriously, the Nicki Minaj concert was AMAZING! On top of that, I waited three hours to meet her. (I still can’t even believe it all happened, tbh.)

OOTD: Transition Wear

As the school year slowly approaching us, so is cooler weather. For some of you, this might include more layers; for others, you might have sun all year round. Either way, I hope this look gives you guys some inspiration for the cooler weather that’s to come!

HERO

Baseball Hat | TankJeans | Flannel | Vans

In this look, I decided to tie my flannel around my waist since it was pretty warm out, with a lightweight tank and comfy jeans. I wore a baseball hat for both style and sun protection, and added Vans—a nice shoe to walk around in.

OOTD: Little Sister Edition

In a not-so-surprising twist, it turns out my sister has amazing style—just like her older sister! She came with me to run errands recently and I just loved the outfit she chose.

HERO

She wore a loose, lightweight, oversized tee with ripped, light-wash jeans and Timberland-inspired boots and carried a nude bucket bag—so of-the-moment right now. Love.

Here Clare shows you how to transform a simple outfit just by changing the shoes. For starters, Clare is wearing just a basic white and light denim outfit. Her shoes dress her simplistic style down for a more everyday, casual look.

Clare loves herself a good pair of metallic oxfords. In fact, I’m pretty sure she has two or three pairs of them. Just by switching up her shoes to metallic oxfords with a funky pointed toe, this outfit instantly gets a boost of quirkiness.

Contrary to what you might think, metallic shoes are not hard to style. In fact, they’re almost easier to style because you can use them as a statement neutral. Just throw them on and a simple outfit looks put together.

I think everyone can agree that in the midst of summer, we tend to spend more time outdoors. While I definitely enjoy typical outdoor summer activities like swimming and hiking, one of my favorite pastimes is spending time in the garden.

Inspired by just that, today’s outfit is perfect for sipping tea in the garden or attending a daytime soiree. The boots add just a touch of edge.

I have said in previous posts how Sundays are my makeup-free day and that I usually run all my errands for the week on that day. Here is this week’s errand outfit—it was only in the 70s so I went for ripped jeans by BLANKNYC with a simple jersey tank.

HERO

When it came time to accessorize, I chose my go-tos for running errands: black Nike Roshes and my Harvard baseball hat. I have also been loving the backpack trend and it makes running around for errands so much easier than carrying a purse.

OOTD: Plain James

So the sun finally decided to make it’s way out today, and what better to do then take some pictures?

*The Chukka boot I have on is available right now, on sale in Black get it here!

This is a very relaxed look that anyone can sport! I wore a teal button-down shirt with the sleeves rolled up to make the look more casual. I then paired it with a chocolate-colored pant and finished off the look with my favorite chukkas. I really liked the earth-tone feel of this look, and I love pairing colors that you might not normally match together.

Travel Diary: OOTD

Hello from the UK!

While I’m sure it’s quite warm in the states this summer, it’s a bit chilly over here in England. For any of you traveling to colder climates or for those random gloomy summer days, here’s a simple outfit for staying comfortable.

Hero

Jeans | Top | Jacket | Sandals

On these kinds of days (this day was particularly windy–hence the crazy hair), I still like to dress “summery” by wearing sandals and loose tops. On the other hand, it’s also a good idea to be prepared for the weather by covering up with a pair of jeans and a denim jacket.
