Incorporate these Spring/Summer Trends into your Fall Wardrobe Now!

"Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier." ~ Mother Teresa

Hey sweetie pies, you are probably thinking that you have to put away all of your Spring and Summer clothes now, but you are wrong! Fall is the perfect season to experiment with your style to create those one of a kind looks! I wear all of my clothes year round when I can honestly. I am de-bunking some major style myths and forging all three of them to create a major stylish look. 

First Myth - You can't wear white after Labor Day.
Honestly, I wear white more often in the Fall and Winter months than I do in Spring and Summer. Why? It is a easy color to build a look without having to always resort to black or dark colors. White can help bring that contrast with "Fall-like" colors such as wine and navy. Take that color combo and then add touches of skin tone neutrals or metallics and you will be killing the game! If you would like some styling suggestions just let me know!

Second Myth - Florals are ONLY for the Spring and Summer.
Now you all know that floral is one of my fave prints - aside from leopard. (Which I paired with here) Floral is definitely a print that you can wear year round. My advice? Opt for a floral print that has at least one dark color in it to make it Fall ready - black, navy, wine, or brown. Having at least one of these colors in your floral piece will help you to transform your look. Pair it with leather for a feminine edge or with suede for a luxe glam look. 

Third Myth - Linen is for wearing over swimsuits and in the warm months.
So hear me out on this one, this breathable fabric is believed to only be worn when temperatures are soaring. But shouldn't this comfortable fabric be enjoyed year round? To make this fabric Fall-worthy, pair it with other textures. (You guys know I am ALL for mixing textures) And Fall is the best time to do this in my opinion! Wearing a loose linen top - try fitted denim on for size with suede or leather booties. The mixing of textures add dimension to your look!

Now that you have NO excuses to not try these in your looks I want to see them! #Sofabulouslysweet on Instagram so that I can see!

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.

To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
