Tied Up With a Pretty Bow

I feel like I haven’t written in awhile since I profiled the lovely Niki last week and Victoria this week.  The last two weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind with prepping for two weddings this month, hosting the first ever Style Social last week, and yes – starting a new full-time job this past Monday.  Perhaps I am a glutton for punishment…but I don’t think my body would know how to react if I wasn’t stressed or constantly juggling ten different projects at once.  Maybe one day I'll learn how to relax...until then, well here we are.  Today, I wanted to get back to basics and share an outfit post with pieces that represent a couple of the trends you’ll be seeing for fall.  Probably the biggest trend you are seeing everywhere right now is 70s-inspired fashion.  Think flare legs, short A-line skirts, vests, and fringe (in moderation).  The oversized bow on this blouse is a great nod to the 70s...though these bows have shown up in various decades.  The skirt represents another huge trend this fall:  menswear inspired fabrics.  Here think tweed, herringbone, and houndstooth.  I feel like these prints make a comeback every fall, but this year they are really popping up everywhere from skirts to jackets to shoes!  And let's talk about the lace detail on the skirt hem - totally pulls the entire outfit together!  L-O-V-E.  What fall trends are you most excited to wear?!
