Making The Transition

As cooler weather approaches we are hanging by a thread for cooler autumn nights, a simple cool breeze, and a break from this summers heat and rain. When you make the transition from summer to fall there are a few key pieces to keep in mind: you can wear your favorite summer looks, just make it fall appropriate with the right color combinations and accessories. Your favorite summer shorts can instantly become fall appropriate with a slouchy sweater and chunky gold accessories. A new pair of skinny jeans (or your old time favorites) become transition appropriate with a cool fall hue such as plum. When thinking of how to dress for this time of the year, remember that in order to still stay cool in the summer heat without looking like you are headed to the beach, think about your colors, accessories and shoes. Pair long sleeve or quarter length sleeve tops with shorts, pair skinny jeans with tanks, and wear maxi skirts with loose and easy to breathe in fabrics. Fall is quickly approaching and we are holding our breath for the perfect autumn nights.

The Short Story

The fact of the matter is this: it's hot. Too hot for pants, too hot for sleeves. If you live almost anywhere in the US, you have a major heat wave going on at the moment. We understand - we're in Alabama. Seriously though, shorts are a summer staple and if for no other reason that this: they keep you cool and stylish. Accessorize with a wedge for night, with loads of bangles, necklaces, mix colors and prints. The options are endless. What we love are the array of styles that are hitting the shorts scene lately: cut offs, high waist, silky, lace, color, print, and we're obsessing over ALL OF THEM! 

If you haven't already, get yourself in on the trend. Here's how we love to style some of our favorite new arrivals in the shorts department. Enjoy!

Pretty In Peplum.

If you've noticed a new trend in stores and on your favorite reality fashion series, it might very well be PEPLUM.
This look might be new to you, but the year twenty-thirteen isn't its first go-round. This trend can be traced back all the way to Ancient Greek women AND men!

The official definition for peplum is:

                        1. A short flared, gathered, or pleated strip of fabric attached at the waist of a
                            woman's  jacket, dress, or blouse. 
                        2. In Ancient Greece, a woman's outer garment. 

Don't worry, this flattering look didn't go away after Socrates retired his peplum...it has lasted throughout some of history's greatest and most fashion forward generations. 

Although this feels like a new trend, peplum allows us all the chance to dress in vintage without paying the price! We love peplum on tops and dresses, sporting big ruffles or small. 

While this is a fun trend, it is sometimes hard to find just the right style of peplum for your body type. 

To balance your shape and hips and help slim your silhouette, choose a peplum that is shorter and adds flirty volume.

To add curves and create an hourglass shape, choose a dress with a peplum on the sides with a tight-fitted bodice.

To camouflage with your peplum, choose one that is longer and lays flat over problem areas. 

You can pair your favorite peplum tops with skinny jeans or pencil skirts for the look of your choice! Just take notes from some of our favorite celebs rocking this timeless trend!

Find all of these looks and more in our store or on our Facebook page!!
