Before we get into this outfit, I have to give a shout out to Megan. Earlier this month, she did a round-up of 14 Fashion Finds for Fall. One of the pieces mentioned was an a-line suede skirt. I commented about my excitement for a-line skirts coming back in vogue, but was looking for an a-line denim skirt with front buttons.
Well, she went a searching, sent me a link and voilà! I have a new denim skirt! Blogging buddies are the best.
The trends to come from NYC's Fall Fashion Week hint the 70s are making a comeback: bell bottom/flare jeans, bright prints, fringe, culottes and a-line hems. The 1970s, as far as fashion goes, have never inspired me. I'm not the biggest fan of bell bottoms or loud prints (I'm open to a big wide leg trouser). BUT I do enjoy a classic a-line hem.
I am still enjoying the resurgence of the 1990s train, so for this look, the two decades have merged. I channeled Rachel from Friends while styling this outfit. I imagined she would have found this skirt at a thrift store in the Village and mixed and matched it with existing pieces in her closet.
What style trends are you excited about for fall? I would like to find a plaid blanket scarf!
^ Often, when doing these fashion posts, Jordan takes my photo without my glasses as they can cause glare. But during the week, I usually wear my Edgeworth by Warby Parker glasses. I love them so much!
^ I found these booties on super clearance at a boutique in Nashville. They might be the most comfortable pair of shoes I own!
^ I purchased my J.Crew jacket right before heading to Europe and nearly three years later, it is still in perfect condition. Buying investment pieces does pay off in the end.
