Hydrate with Khiel’s

image

During the changing of seasons, skin tends to become dry and itchy. This is why a facial moisturizer should become your new best friend. Unlike a lot of other brands that go on sticky and irritate the sensitive skin on your face, Kiehl’s goes on smooth and soaks right in. This lotion will leave you with a nice glow for the rest of the day.

Leather leggings are the ultimate convertible piece for fall. Wear them with a long chiffon top and leather booties for a night out, or throw a jean shirt and sneaker wedges on to run to class. Either way, you cannot beat this new trend.

Street Style: Southern Prep

Andrew Hutchinson has a classic, Southern, preppy twist to his style. I loved this dressy oxford thrown under a simple, neutral shirt. The suede boots in the seasons most sought after color add just the right touch of Fall fashion.

Bonjour Bensimon!

I just spent a few weeks in Paris, and it became absolutely clear that the trending shoes right now are Bensimon sneakers aka the “French Flip-Flops”. They are light canvas sneakers with rubber soles. They come in great colors, simple styles, and are the perfect transitioning summer sneaker. They are really comfortable and are great to just throw on and go. I love mine!

Here we have a simple black dress, that gets a bohemian twist with a braided head band. I love this effortless style for the heat. You could easily copy this look from pieces by Free People.

Chambray at its Best


When I think of a statement piece for my wardrobe, a jean shirt is not the first thing that comes into my mind. But, when I saw this dip dyed chambray shirt from Urban Outfitters, I quickly imagined it being worn a hundred different ways. This item could be painlessly taken from day to night, and turn heads anywhere you went. You can snatch this up for yourself in stores  now.

Weekend Style: Menswear with a kick

imageimage

image image image

This outfit can be taken from day to night, from errands to a lunch date. Breeze through summer in a silk top and up to date denim shorts. Faded patterned shorts have been seen in every collection this summer and these CURRENT/ELLIOTT’s are no exception. The Sea foam color of this J.Crew blouse will easily play up a tan. A nude heel elongates the leg and adds an unexpected pop to this whole look. Rebecca Minkoff has made THE bag of the summer in every color imaginable. Push a cuff up on your arm, grab your bag, and run out the door. Don’t forget to roll your sleeves up for that extra casual touch.

Meet Julia and Jordan. I caught them in the Ralph Lauren store in Chicago and fell in love with Julia’s striped polo, and Jordan’s tortoise shell glasses. These are the perfect fresh, preppy looks for summer. You can easily copy their classic look by checking out stores around your area.
