 Hello everybody! I hope that you’re enjoying your Summer and getting out to enjoy the warm weather.

For this week’s post, I wanted to wear a color that is usually not in my comfort zone, but is perfect for Summer: pastel.

This dress not only light, feminine and versatile (from brunches to date nights), but has the over the shoulder trend! It is one of those pieces that you can have on rotation for Summer and just switch out the accessories to create a different look.

I hope that you have enjoyed the look and these photos which were taken on a jetset trip to Park City, Utah.

Love and Peace,

Hello everybody! I hope that you are enjoying your Summer! For this week’s post, I was inspired to do a boho chic look.

With Summer in full swing, dresses are on heavy rotation and I wanted to find a dress that was light, versatile, comfortable and chic.

An afternoon spent shopping at my local Banana Republic store and I was able to find this dress which met all that I was looking for!

I styled this boho chic dress around a dark blue palette with my lace up sandals and Miu Miu sunglasses, but added a pop of color with my watch and bright handbag.

I hope that you have enjoyed the look, pictures and be inspired to try this Summer trend too!

Love and Peace,

 Hello everyone! I am very excited about this week’s post for so many great reasons that I will share with you!

First, if you have been following me via Instagram (@AugustRunway), you’ll know that I was recently blessed to have crossed off a dream destination off my Wanderlust list:  visiting the Bonneville Salt Flats! I will be adding a separate page under the upcoming Travel section to this blog on details and pictures of this trip.

Second, I was also eager to do a quick fashion/editorial look while at the Salt Flats.  I knew that I wanted to style my look in a way that reflected my personal style:  feminine, playful and edgy.

I was able to find all my wardrobe pieces from H&M! I had bought the classic and feminine top earlier this year and just recently, at a visit to my local H&M, I found the playful fringe skirt.  I knew then that I had to style these two pieces, one classic and the other playful, together. I finished off the look with an H&M hat (in my own way, as an ode to all the racing history at this location) and added the red hat for a second, different look and pop of color against the stunning landscape around me. To add a hint of edginess, I added the booties and contrasted that with a pop of gold detailing with my jewelry.

I hope that you have enjoyed the look, pictures and travel inspiration, which is what I try to do with my occasional editorial fashion posts like this one. If you have been following me for awhile, you know that I like to interrupt the outfit of the day posts with editorials like these. If you enjoy them, let me know in the comments below!

Hello everyone! Since this weekend we’re celebrating Memorial Day, I was inspired to do do a street style chic look that had a classic color combination of black and white with the added feminine touch of lace.

It goes to prove that even classic colors can be styled in a chic way with the right wardrobe piece. In this case, the dress. I love that it’s versatile for a day to night look and can easily be paired with any accessories. For this day look, I opted for strappy sandals and gold colored jewelry and handbag.

I hope that you have been inspired by the look and enjoy the pictures. Let me know in the comments below and don’t forget to subscribe!

As Memorial Day approaches on Monday, let’s join in with prayers and appreciation.

Love and Peace,

 Hello everybody! As you can tell by this week’s pictures, I was inspired by the Spring Lace Up dress trend and decided to do a scenic  photo shoot with it.

The location was surreal and has become one of my favorite places that I have ever visited. The winds were chilly, but it allowed for the details of this flowy dress to be really shown of.  The dress not only has the lace up detail to it, but it is fitted at the waist and has slight ruffles on the hemline and top. These details make this a perfect day to night look simply by changing out your accessories!

I opted for a day look so I kept my accessories a little more bold. I chose (the also very on trend) tassel bag and a watch with small gold spikes.

I hope you have enjoyed the look and pictures! If so, let me know in the comments. Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to subscribe!

Love and Peace,

Hello everybody! Thank you for stopping by and checking out this week’s look: Spring Dress Inspiration.

I had so much fun with this look and location! The dress was so feminine and hit right on the over the shoulder trend, too. Also, this dress is very versatile because of the style and light colors. I personally think it’s perfect for trips to go wine tasting, brunch, and as you can tell by my pictures, picturesque countrysides.

Finding the right accessories to pair with is dress is easy and just as versatile. I opted for a whimsical and fun handbag, gold jewelry and dark blue lace up flats to complete the look.

Hope you have enjoyed the pictures and the look! Let me know in the comments below and don’t forget to subscribe!
