Garage Clothing Fall It Girl

ticking with the theme of fall closet essentials, I have to say every girl needs a comfy pair of skinny jeans that fit like a glove.  Yes, it's bittersweet that summer is coming to an end, but now that fall is right around the corner, it's time to dust off the tall boots and bring out the cold weather wardrobe!  Although it's a time for mourning the loss of endless summer nights and no homework, it's also a time for celebrating new beginnings, sweater weather, and denim season.    I was thrilled when Garage Clothing selected me to be a part of their Denim Squad as one of their fall It Girls.  I got to style an outfit with the Cozy High Waist Jeggings.

My Style: Laced Up

f you've got the end of summer blues, I suggest a little shopping therapy.  To put a smile on any fashionista's face, just think of the new fall pieces that could make their way into your closet.  Charlotte Russe has some awesome new clothes and accessories, a few of which I've selected as fall essentials.      

First, the high heeled combat boots are a must.  Comfortable, versatile, and chic.  You can wear booties with no-show socks, with lace accent ankle socks, with over-the-knee socks, or with tights.  Booties look chic with so many things from leggings to skirts to dresses.

Second, suede is the "it" material for fall, and you can enjoy high quality faux suede or vegan leather--yes, it feels great to wear luxurious materials and yet not harm any animals in the process.  For this styling, I selected a beautiful tan, faux suede skirt and a handsome, fringed backpack.

Lastly, you must have guessed that lace-up tops and dresses are part of this fall's go-to aesthetics.  I'm lovin' this black lace-up top with bell sleeves.  

Summer was fantastic, and now it's time to get ready for fall.  See you at the mall!  Xoxo, Shelly

My Style: Sunflower Fields

he last remnants of summer are fading fast.  I can't say I feel a chill in the air yet, because it's been very warm in Arizona.  But I know my first day at a new university is approaching quickly, and so I'm trying to take advantage of every free moment to enjoy summertime until school starts.  While out hiking, I came upon this little field of sunflowers, and knew I had to come back for a photo shoot.  What can I say about this OOTD other than you can't go wrong with a LBD, black booties, black wide-brimmed hat, a denim jacket, and a fringe bag?  Seriously, it doesn't get better than this!  I do want to say that the dress by Goldie London is the ultimate in quality, and I adore the grommet detailing.  The jacket, by the same company, is fully lined with zipper detailing and pleats.  Just purely beautiful pieces.  I also recommend the sunglasses by Polette--custom glasses that are wonderful.  Everything I'm wearing today, I love.  Here's to more hikes and maybe finding some more gorgeous fields to photograph.    Xoxo Shelly
