Tomorrow is September 1st and that means it's almost fall. Technically yes, somedays here it is still in the upper 90's but that doesn't mean I can't at least wear fall colors with the hopes of one day layering without sweating. It's fall somewhere, right? I've been singing sweet love songs about fall weather to my scarves and jackets at night. That's why I'm so tired this week -- not because I run a shop but because I'm crazy on the inside. It's all making sense now isn't it?

  5. Great top! Everybody who thinks your style is "simple" should see this! You're all multi-colored and lacey and leopardy and stuff.

  13. It's amazing how versatile those leopard heels are! Or, I should say, how versatile you make them look! I've been pushing for fall for about 2 weeks now, which leaves me feeling sweaty, but hopeful. Can't wait to check out the new Bloom collection!

  25. Lovely ensemble!  I have a similar top from j.crew that I am waiting to wear again.  Did you trim your hair again?  It looks really good today!

  26. It's funny how the grass is always greener! We didn't really have a proper summer here in the UK. Lots of rain, but when the sun did come out, it was glorious! 

    I on the other hand will be whispering sweet nothings to my shorts and sandals and dreaming of tropical island warms. I'm not crazy though.... I think!

    Another great outfit! I adore the shoes.

  27. love that top! i know what you mean! i just did a post about fall sneaking in.

  34. Usually one part of your outfit really pops to me and the rest flows great with it. This time, I love every single individual piece. I love the light-colored jeans on you and how you rolled them, that adorable shirt, those kickass shoes and all the accessories. 

    ReplyDelete
  35. ooooh...love that teal crochet sweater thingy! Those heels go with everything!

    Here it's like 100 outside today. That's okay, I'll take a longer summer whenever I can get it. BisousSuzannehttp://bisous.typepad.com/bisous/

  42. I'm ready for fall weather and I keep wearing pants and long sleeves hoping to convince mother nature it's time for cooler weather.  I don't think it's working.  But I love the leopard heels with the lace top...beautiful color as well!

  46. Over here in The Netherlands it was 53 degrees Fahrenheit. And I wasn't dressed for it! I was freezing in my gingham and bodywarmer/waistcoat.

    I really like your top. Though I wouldn't wear long trousers in such hot weather.
    Love autumn! My fave season!

  54. Oh I love the color of that top! And the lace! awesome. This is my first fall in texas and so far it feels a lot like summer haha 

    ReplyDelete
  55. That lace top is amazing - I love the color! Is it hot? Sometimes things like that don't look like they would be warm, and then you put it on and half way through the day you are dying of heat exhaustion.

  74. I went shopping this weekend and thought of you while I did it.  I ended up with a dress to wear to everything I can possibly think of, save the bounce house party I'm about to attend.  Not really a dress-event ... but everything else is! : )  Cute outfit!

  75. Love the pattern on that lace! So unique!

  78. I hate to be the odd woman out but i DO NOT like this outfit. lately, i have not liked her "style" choices.  i feel that maybe she's too preoccupied and her creativity is faltering.  Don't get me wrong, i still visit her blog and I LOVE HER, honestly!!!  but im not as big a fan as i was last year when she excelled at mixing patterns, silhouettes, and textures. the shoes look cheap; and because of this, will quickly go out of style.  Nine West, Aldo and Steve Madden have great leopard pumps that have quality craftsmanship with a reasonable price tag. quality materials+classic concepts= will never go out of style.  and i cant emphasize enough how important it is to tailor your pieces; her pants are wrinkled and ill fitting.  the entire outfit and accessories look haphazardly put together. 
    I KNOW and HAVE SEEN her do better....DON'T HATE ME GUYS ;( but sorry, not my fav.

    STILL LOVE YOU KENDI!!!!!

  95. I totally fell in love with this top when I saw your post, and I am a HUGE fan of lace. I'd marry it if I could. Also after all your posts I really wanted to try peplum. SO today I got a lace shirt like yours AND it's peplum. I just thought you should know. I wanted to make you proud. (:
