Temperatures have significantly dropped in Atlanta and it has me craving blazers, layers, thick slacks, wool, scarves and all things FALL. When images of Steven Alan’s Fall Lookbook popped up on Refinery 29 I fell hard in love with the tomboy chic looks- here are my faves and what I like most of the ensembles:
LEFT//really want to invest in a matching semi-casual suit & RIGHT//tomboy layers
LEFT//again with a casual suit set, in particular with this one the length of the pants & RIGHT//entire look!
LEFT//jumpers for life & RIGHT//high socks with sneakers 
LEFT//a large gingham print blazer skirt combo worn with sneakers, UM YES & RIGHT// nerd chic, it’s a thing.
LEFT//winter whites & RIGHT//winter baby blues
LEFT//unsure what’s happening here-pj dress over pj pants? don’t care, love the pattern and spotted square prints on several fashionistas during the various fashion weeks & RIGHT//shorter slacks with sneakers and high socks is a look I’ll definitely be rocking!

They nailed it with the structured yet casual feel of the designs. I told my boyfriend “if I only had THESE PIECES right here in my closet I’d be set” and I mean that, I think each article is versatile and would go great with one another or mixed with non-Steven Alan attire. Since the brand is a bit out of my price range (that’s an understatement!) I’ve got to just keep these styles and shapes in mind and find similar versions at retailers such as Zara and H&M, sorry SA, I’m just not a baller. *yet* 

UP NEXT: A fun shoot with a local DJ styled by a local boutique, a visit to a shop that takes vintage suitcases and turns them into boomboxes, outfit post AND the last of my shoot with Betsy at Oakland Cemetery!!
*not in any particular order…

~but first I’m getting ready to be in my best bud’s wedding this weekend!

Sneak Peek

each month when the Free People catalog preview hits my inbox I always get really excited, for many reasons. first reason, I’m getting to see a sneak peak of what’s to come before it’s actually hitting mailboxes and secondly it’s always B E A U T I F U L and inspiring! hence why I’m always saving my hard copies and hoarding them away for later use to collage with or just to flip through again and again.

“For this month’s catalog, Free People tapped the beautiful Anja Rubik to show off the latest from the line. Amazing booties alongside great transitional jackets, and breezy dresses are mixed with funky accents such as armor-like jewelry and rounded sunnies.
Anja shows off her cool, unique personality in every shot and we can’t help but be reminded that this is what the Free People fashion is all about: clothing that adapts to women everywhere, showing off their inner beauty and accentuating their individuality.”

while I’m giving FP a shoutout may as well mention that they JUST launched an APP that’s available as of today for FREE. you can shop, see what’s trending, keep track of pieces you like and best of all get inspired by their styling. I just downloaded it and started exploring, perhaps a second app review will follow? 

don’t know about you but I’m super excited for the mid-week holiday! especially since a gal pal is throwing and epic bday bash that will include fireworks, RED/WHITE/BLUE EVERYTHING, bb guns, BBQ and back porch beer sipping!

Summer has officially BEGUN.
