Wardrobe Update: 3 Trends to Wear This Season

Anytime there's a season change, I always look to find the few pieces I should be buying and wearing to give my wardrobe a quick update. In the look in this post, I've incorporated 3 of my favorites for Summer 2017: two-tone denim, a statement top, and a retro oval cat eye pair of sunnies.  The statement top and two tone denim skirt, are both from Azalea SF, and since It's officially Spring, ALMOST Summer, of course I'm sporting these fun orange sunnies from Made Eyewear.  This year in particular, this one shape I've been seeing literally EVERYWHERE, and I'm really digging them for any style right now. If you're any A-list celebrity, you're wearing this sunny shape, hey Gigi and Bella!

Two-tone denim: 

This is one of my favorite trends right now. If you've been reading this blog for a while, you already know I love my denim, and this is such a fun take on my favorite wardrobe staple. 

 

Statement Tops:

I've been loving statement tops a lot right now, and specifically ones with over stated sleeves. This one is so flattering and wraps around the body which gives it a great look with a pair of skinny jeans or a skirt like I've worn in this post. See below some statement tops I'm loving that you can wear similarly all Summer long, and well into Fall!

The New Cat Eye:

In this post, I've opted for a pair of sunglasses from MADE Eyewear in a fun punchy orange (They're called the Jamie - you can find them here). There's something about this pair that is so retro chic, and it's a different take to the standard cat eye shape. The oval rounded cat eye is really versatile and works on basically any face shape, which is a major perk. Here I've link a whole bunch of styles and interpertations of them for any budget. From Forever 21 to Elizabeth and James, there's sure to be a pair for you below so make sure to check out the boutique below for some of my faves.

3 Ways to Wear Blue Pin Stripes for Spring and Summer

When it comes to prints for Spring and Summer one always comes to mind, and it's florals. As Miranda Priestly would say: "Florals for Spring? GROUNDBREAKING." While I love a good floral almost any time of year, this year it seems that stripes are actually taking the spotlight. They've been popping up on everything from statement tops to wide leg trousers, and it seems every it-girl is rocking a stripe in one way or another. My personal favorite way to rock a stripe this season? A blue pinstripe, and I'm digging it on tops as well as bottoms, or accessories! There's something preppy and pulled together about the classic print that can go with so much. It also has the tendency to class up a pair of ripped jeans. Below see two of my favorite ways to rock this pattern, and shop some of my faves!

1) A statement top: 

Statement tops are everywhere, and I can't help but gravitate to them every time I see them in a stripe. Here I'm wearing this fabulous off the shoulder flare-sleeved version from Azalea SF which goes great with anything from a skinny jean, to a wide legged pant, to a suede mini like I'm wearing here from AG Jeans. (Quite possibly my favorite thing in my closet right now, btw. It's such a stunning piece!)

2) A high waisted short: 

Stripes are notoriously tricky on the body but these are flattering since they're small and vertically placed. Put a pinstripe on a high waisted short or jean and it's bound to be magic. I love the blue and white on these and they're so fun to play around with for Summer. I've worn them with a pussy bow blouse here, but they'd also be great with a bodysuit or simple tee and sandal. The ones I'm wearing here are the Juliette short from AG Jeans

3) A striped mini bucket bag:

Nothing says "Oui Oui" like a striped mini bucket bag with fringe. I've been wearing this little guy with everything and I love the pin stripe to give it a little fun flare. Every time I use it I have to ask myself: "Am I French yet?" Unfortunately, no, but at least I can dress like I am ;).

Shop this one I'm wearing here: Calistoga mini bag, or here:  Calistoga mini bag in Vegan leather.

How to Make (Baby) Pink Your Favorite Color This Winter
The Style Sauce Favorite Pink Blog Post

When you think of winter wear pink doesn't usually come to mind, does it? It seems like red's more low-key cousin usually pops up alongside resort wear in the Spring and Summer, but here's 5 ways to incorporate everyone's favorite feminine color into your life in the chicest way during these cooler months. Major perk? You don't have to ditch the color come Spring and Summer, so some of these are classics for all year round. 

1) Pick a muted tone. If there's anything to remember when reaching for pink this year it's that muted is much better. Hot pink is a totally different world, but if you opt for a nude, baby pink, or blush, it's a much easier incorporate into your every day wardrobe. 

2) Wear it in a floral or print.

Florals are everywhere, even in the Fall. Find pink in an embroidered bomber this season or in a silk blouse for a little boom.

3) Opt for a pop of pink in your home.

Not ready to wear pink? Maybe you'll be willing to decorate with it. Pink couches might be my favorite thing, but if you can't commit to that try a candle, pillows, or a piece of art to warm up your space.

 

4) Choose an accessory.

A pink backpack, scarf, shoe, or pair of sunnies is a great way to wear pink without doing it head to toe. A blush heel would look cute with any little black dress, or a pink backpack goes great with jeans and a tee.

5) As outerwear:

A baby pink jacket is oh so chic. Opt for a wool trench or pink sweater for a warm way to wear this soft and feminine tone all year round.  If you like the one I'm wearing in this post from Azalea SF, check it out here.
