Hello everyone!

 As we cling on to the last days of Summer, not only are the leaves about transition from their laid back green to fiery hues of orange and red, but so is our wardrobe to adjust to those slightly colder temperatures.

However, what about the transition period when it’s still warm for a dress, but cooler at night and Fall stepping in more and more? Try long sleeve dresses with dark florals! Easy, right? The longer sleeves will help when the temperature begins to slightly get cooler and the prints with the dark florals add a chic nod to the transition period.

For this week’s look, I happen to be in Chicago celebrating my birthday! If you want to see more pictures from my travels there, join me on Instagram and follow me along @AugustRunway!

This dress was perfect for this transition period and also very versatile in using it from a day to night look simply by switching out the accessories. For this day look, I went with minimal jewelry and sunglasses, but added a little chic touch with the lace up tassel sandals and the saddle style bag.

Hope that you have enjoyed the look and pictures! Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to subscribe to get first access to new posts!

Love and Peace,

Hello everybody! I hope that you are all enjoying the last days of Summer and making the most of it.

For this week’s look, I decided to incorporate a Summer trend that you might have tried yourself or have seen it on other bloggers: denim and lace up.

I initially wanted to do a denim on denim look, but I’ve seen it done too many times already that I simply decided to mix the lace up trend and detailing this blouse with the denim skirt.

I kept the lace up sandals and jewelry in a gold hue and added a touch of  color with the gorgeous red handbag.

I hope that you like this Summer trend inspired look and pictures! Don’t forget to subscribe and follow me on Instagram (@AugustRunway)!

Hello everybody! I am really excited about this week’s post for many reasons that I will share with you.

First, finding a dupe for the ever popular Chanel slingbacks was such an unexpected find that I could barely contain my excitement (and scream at my local Nordstrom Rack) when I found these and in my size!

Second, and on a more personal level, was the fact that after two years, I was able to put on a pair of heels! Hurray for the power of prayer! ️I have been dealing with three knee injuries that had me avoiding heels like the plague, but slipping into these felt like a momentous occasion for me!

And finally, challenging myself to go outside my color comfort zone and style this week’s look in Summer neutrals! I found the pieces at my local Banana Republic store and took a chance on pairing them together along with my slingbacks.

I hope that you like the look and pictures! And, may it inspire you to go outside your color comfort zone, too!

Love and Peace,

 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!
