Spring Embroidery Florals

Hello Everybody!

It is great to be back on this platform and continue to share with you more photos, personal stories and inspiration with fashion, travel and photography.

For this look, my vision was to do more of an Editorial look with the fashion and location.  Both proved to be exactly what I was looking for!

Let’s start with the dress. It’s the perfect transition piece from Spring to Summer because of its light and dreamy material, but the beautiful embroidery details made it ideal to try the Spring Embroidery Floral trend that has been so popular this season.

Initially, I was tempted to try out the embroidery trend on a denim shirt or jeans, but I soon saw that everywhere (and by everywhere I mean Pinterest and Instagram) and I knew I had to challenge myself a bit more and look for other wardrobe pieces that would be different to try the trend with. I soon found this dress! (Links other similar dresses below!)

Once I found the dress, I wanted to keep my accessories more subtle so that I could let the dress stand out. So I paired it with block heels and one of my favorite small, crossbody bags. I finished off this look with a nod to my Beloved Mexico and my culture since this happened to be right on Cinco de Mayo! So I added the red flower for some of the photos above.

As for the location, this stunning scenery is only a 15 minute drive from where I currently live and had not visited it during the Spring. The focal point was the covered bridge, but once we arrived and saw the creek with its rushing water leading off to a still and peaceful lake, we knew that these photos would take on a more Editorial look.  The Spring blooms, the mountains, the setting sun, the lake and covered bridge would all be part of this Spring Embroidery Floral look!

I hope that you have enjoyed these photos! Let it continue to inspire you to try new trends and have fun with fashion. Also, to go out and explore more!

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! 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!

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.

 Hello everyone! For this week’s post, I wanted to share with you easy and chic ways to update your style this Spring:  Spring Accessories.

Updating your style doesn’t necessarily mean going out and spending money on shopping because you can easily look (or in my case, raid through) your closet. And, the best way to start is looking through your accessories.

Since we’re in Spring, there will most likely be rain in the weather forecast. Why not let a pretty umbrella be your chic accessory?! So while you’re walking to and from places that you need to be, you can brighten up and add a touch of style to your wardrobe with this unexpected accessory. You might even be tempted to start singing “Umbrella” which I did and then had that song stuck in my head for awhile!

The second accessory that you can add to your Spring style is a handbag! You can keep your wardrobe in an all monochrome look and let the handbag add a pop of color and style!

Have fun this Spring incorporating these easy and chic ways to your style! Let me know in the comments below if you tried them, too.
