Fall Forward | The Seventies Trend

I might not have been alive in the seventies, but I definitely know how to appreciate the fashion of that decade! There’s bell bottoms, fringe, suede and beautiful boho florals… what’s not to love? My summer outfits always tend to take a seventies boho vibe. For the summer, I love crochet, florals and fringe. But it’s time to start thinking fall forward and transitioning those boho pieces into perfect fall staples.

What really transitions the seventies trend into fall is texture and color. First of all, suede is essential! I am loving this Suede Lace Up Dress featured below and the Suede Fringe Statement Jacket. The color story is also very important. Think burgundy, mustard, browns and caramels. All of these colors will help you pull together the perfect seventies look. And last, but definitely not least…. Make sure you get some fabulous flares to go with these boho tops! You will get a ton of use out of the this fall! Check out some of my favorite seventies pieces below! My personal favorite is this Suede Sheath Dress… it’s amazing and genuine suede for only $50!

Americana Ready- Stars & Stripes

My favorite time of the year is right around the corner, the fourth of July! I love the fireworks, the barbecue parties and of course the fun americana clothes!…. and I mean how can you resist sparklers?

Over the years, I’ve accumulated quite the collection of americana in my closet, but I love mixing it up with new items every year. My favorite, super easy look this year is Old Navy’s Star Print Dress. The chambray material makes it perfect for summer and I love the halter silhouette and added pockets. It’s adorable! I am also in love with this Tie Dye Crop Top and Denim Cut-offs. It’s the perfect fourth of July weekend uniform for spending the day out in the sun. And to keep it fun and casual, I think any of the outfits would look great with these amazing Red High Top Converse Sneakers, especially the White Overalls! I’ll be living in those the rest of summer! Are you ready for your long Fourth of July weekend? If not, enjoy and get to shopping! Happy Friday!

White Eyelet and Bright Blooms

Spring is in full swing, I mean just look at those blooms! I paired all my favorite spring trends together for today’s look. Bright colors, eyelet and distressed denim! I’ve been wearing these pieces on repeat this spring and I think they will seamlessly carry me into summer!

White Eyelet Tee 1

Nothing makes a weekend better than the perfect pair of comfy boyfriend jeans. I am unhealthily obsessed with my newest Blank NYC jeans. They are stretchy, comfortable and I think the distressing on them is perfect. I find myself wearing them WAY too much. I would wear them everyday if I could!

When wearing boyfriend denim I think it’s important to pair them with girly pieces. The wedges and boyfriend jean combo is perfect for summer. It gives off a feminine, casual look that can take you from day to night. Finish the look with some fun accessories and you are ready to walk out the door!

Rompers and Picnics at the Beach

Rompers and Picnics at the Beach

Crashing waves, rompers and champagne… now that’s what I’m talking about! Before our trip to Europe, my husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary at Crissy Beach in San Francisco. One of our favorite ways to experience our city is packing a yummy picnic and enjoying the sunshine.

Rompers and Picnics at the Beach

I wore this adorable eyelet romper (previously featured here!) for our casual day at the beach and paired it with my favorite spring accessories- Leopard Sandals, a dutch braid and a perfectly packed picnic basket! Nothing recharges me after a crazy week like spending a day relaxing in the sunshine. To have your own effortless picnic day, check out my guide to preparing for the perfect picnic here!

Pink Floppy Hat on the Pier

Lately, my outfits have been centered around my accessories. Whether it’s a hat, a bag, shoes or jewelry, these accessories seem to be dictating the rest of my outfit and I kinda love it! It’s great when a statement piece can hold it’s own in an outfit. This weekend it’s all about my pink floppy hat!

PINK FLOPPY HAT ON THE PIER

I got this Pink Floppy Felt Hat from Nordstrom for only $28 this past week. I think it creates the perfect spring look paired with black and denim basics. It seriously saved my hair this weekend! As we were walking on the pier, the wind was blowing my hair everywhere! It was perfect to tame my mane and to hide my less than perfect hair day, but still not give me hat hair!

I chose to style this hat with my Old Navy Denim Jacket and Liquid Leggings, but I think it would look just as great with a flowy maxi or jeans and a tee. Floppy hats are going to be everywhere this spring and Nordstrom has an amazing selection at really affordable prices! Shop them here before they are all gone!

Beach Bumming in cut off denim shorts

The weather in San Francisco has been hard to beat lately and I’ve been taking advantage of the sunshine as much as possible. On nice weekends it’s only a short drive up north and we are at the beach! It feels great to take the day to relax and put my toes in the sand.

Beach Bumming in cut off denim shorts

When dressing for a day at the beach a swimsuit is an obvious must, but lately I’ve been ditching the cover-ups and opting for outfits. Cut off denim shorts are a basic for hot summer days, so why not rock them on the beach? And to complete the relaxed beach vibe I opted for this Old Navy Button Up Boyfriend Shirt. It is a great staple for any girl’s closet and is so versatile. I not only pair it with cut off denim shorts, but it looks great with shirts, leggings and boyfriend jeans depending on my mood.

Lastly, I featured this Vegan Leather Reversible Tote on my Trendy Spring Accessories on a Budget post. This bag has been a lifesaver! I chose the Cognac/Black color option and it has been my go-to bag ever since. As you can see, it’s a generous size, well-made and even fits my laptop. It’s super simple, but comes with a matching zippered clutch that attaches to the inside for quick finds. Not to mention, it’s such a great value at only $48! Nordstrom has a few other colors available, including a light pink one that’s perfect for spring adventures!Beach Bumming in cut off denim shorts Beach Bumming in cut off denim shorts Beach Bumming in cut off denim shorts Beach Bumming in cut off denim shorts

Game On!

With the World Series continuing into the weekend, I already know my next few nights will be jam-packed with Giants festivities. I love showing spirit during the games, but not at the expense of style. I think it’s important to dress up the traditional team apparel, especially when the games fall on weekend nights.


My advice for taking your team gear to the next level:

  1. Pick one item with your team’s logo on it. I suggest hats, they are the easiest to dress up and down and can match back to a ton of things already in your closet! (You can’t go wrong with a baseball hat or a beanie- they are both on trend this fall!)
  2. Choose some girly items to pair with your team gear. Find a dress, skirt or even a lace top to wear with it. Any feminine details that soften the look will immediately transform it into night!
  3. Lastly, add some layers! Denim, leather, camo- any will work! You could even go further with the sporty look and wear a baseball or varsity jacket!

Check out my look below! I love the wool texture of this Giant’s hat. It’s perfect for fall and still screams Giants! (Don’t worry if you cheer for another team! They have a TON of cute team hats, with nearly every style, for every team!!) I chose to dress it up with a faux leather skirt and a hooded denim jacket. Now I’m ready for whatever this weekend throws at me! (Hopefully the Giants are too!)

H&M- go green, wear blue

Fashion is evolving and so are consumer expectations. We are no longer impressed with a showing of the latest trends and average price points, we want much more! In addition to meeting our already high standards, we’ve thrown some more demands into the mix. We also want to know that our clothes are sustainable and eco-friendly, something we can feel good about wearing around town. And brands are starting to notice the shift in our priorities and are making it easier and easier for us to be a responsible shopper.

H&M’s newest sustainable collection, the Conscious Denim Collection, is a great example. They are combining sustainable materials with sustainable production and making high fashion denim pieces. The collection not only includes every denim fit you will be wearing this fall, but it also has a few great jackets, skirts and accessories. There’s something for everyone, literally! Not only is there an amazing collection for women, but they’ve included men and kids in on the fun too! These items are not only cool, but this is a cause I would be proud to represent.

The full line launched in select stores worldwide and on hm.com October 2nd. Check out some of the looks below, my favorite is the quilted bomber jacket! Share yours in the comments!
