As most of us celebrate the last few days of summer all I have on the brain is FALL! Some of you may think I am CRAY-CARY but this is the total norm for me.
When I worked in fashion we would buy seasons ahead of time. Purchasing prom gowns six months in advance meant that I pretty much mentally celebrated Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and the first snow long before any of those things even happened. I was already thinking to the springtime when we had just barely made a dent into summer. Fashion thinks in the future. It was one of the most exciting things about my job— trying to predict the trends and what would be popular nearly a year in advance. But I digress… back to fall!
So here I am in the present day, sweating it out in my office (yes, I am indoors… but I promise I am only waiting for a client while I write this blog! I’ll head out into the sunshine in just a bit) dreaming of suede and crisp leaves. And maybe a #PSL or two, but they would have to be iced. Even I can’t drink hot coffee just yet!
If you grew up in the 90’s you probably have noticed that our beloved styles are making a major splash in current trends. I am loving that the button down skirt is back (I was ALL about the knee length denim button down)! A-line suede button skirts in rich fall hues have hit stores. Here are a few of my favorites and where you can pick them up without emptying your pocket…
