when 90° heat calls for a nap dress
I am slowly trying to lean into the flare jean trend...it is not overly natural for me but I will say its been growing on me! This is a pair of flare jeans from Good American (one of my favorite brands for denim) - I always suggest sizing down in Good American because their styles tend to have a good bit of stretch. My other favorite flare jeans are from Veronica Beard, so I will link those as well.
As you all know, I am such a fan of shoes from Margaux. The female founded brand offers beautiful designed classic women’s shoes in extended sizing (US 3 - 14) with three width options. As someone who has a size 12 shoe, it can be so hard to find chic and high quality shoes in my size so I often turn to Margaux. I must own at least eight pairs of their shoes, if not more! For this fall season, I thought it would be fun to add a pop of red to my closet with this scarlet red Demi ballet flat. (Gifted)
I have been a long time follower of Liz Damrich, so I was thrilled when I saw that she was launching a capsule collection of clothing and accessories for Dillards. As soon as the collection launched I ordered this chic green midi length skirt and black kitten heels. I am thrilled with both items (and each is under $150!)
It is certainly starting to feel like autumn during these late summer days in Maine. We cut a few hydrangeas from the garden and this blue ceramic crock from Etú Home made the perfect vase - it could also be great for holding spatulas and spoons on a kitchen counter top. Use code NAN20 for 20% off all Etú Home items. *Ceramic container was kindly gifted.
I think my go-to color this fall is going to be olive green; I just seem to gravitate to every product I see in these deep green hue and this cashmere sweater set from Veronica Beard is no exception. Another great olive green product - these under $60 Monolo-inspired heels from Amazon of all places! *The jeans and sweater set were kindly gifted.
I am a longtime fan of the simple and well designed makeup products from Merit, so I was thrilled to see that they launched new eyeshadows. The formula is so unique, the Solo Shadows apply as a cream consistency (making them easy to blend!) but then dry down to be a powder, so they dont budge once you apply it to your eyelid. *products kindly gifted
I always have the hardest time finding jeans that fit me well and now that flair jeans are a popular style again it feels even more difficult. So I was thrilled when the Beverly Skinny Flare Jeans from Veronica Beard fit me and on top of that, that they are comfortable and flattering! One of the reasons that I love Veronica Beard is that they offer extended sizing in some of their pieces, including this jean. (I am in my true/usual jean size, 18.) Also, don't overlook this $8 Target tank top!(I am in size XL.) *the jeans were kindly gifted.
Can you tell I’m ready for Autumn weather and fall clothes? I bought this Anine Bing green ‘Jake Jacket’ the other week and I think it will be the perfect light layer for this fall — it is almost like a jean jacket but a bit more elevated due to the olive green color and leather patch pocket. (I am in a L in the jacket, it runs oversized/big and in a XL in the black silk La Ligne dress.)
