This is a time when fashion bloggers like to trot out the "buy now wear later" stuff. I kind of want to try to avoid it if I can--it's still early August for crying out loud. Wear all the bright florals and nautical motifs while you can. However, fall is teasing me pretty hard right now. The weather is simply beautiful--mid-70s, no humidity, chilly at night. The university students are starting to come back into town and sorority recruitment is just around the corner.
Eloquii bracelets: I've been getting a lot requests for plus size bracelets lately. I picked out a few from Eloquii that have a bit of a Tory Burch vibe that I'm really liking. If you're looking for a more budget selection, try places like Rue 21 or Maurice's. I've also heard people have had some luck with Old Navy and Charming Charlies. Of course, there's always Lane Bryant.
J.Crew Signet Bag: This is a fun little purse has already been determined to be the "it" bag for the fall. The fun part comes in the accessorizing of the bag: a variety of coin pouches, locks, and bag tags are available to help customize your bag. I feel it's decently priced at $128, with accessories running around $7 for a tag (that can be monogrammed) to $30 for a coin purse.
Lands' End ponte sheath: I've been featuring this dress for a long time. It's a classic dress made with comfortable fabric. It comes out in new shades every season and the choices for fall are spectacular. I'm in love with the Atlas yellow I featured above, but I'm also liking the loden green.
Old Navy striped boatneck tee: A staple of any preppy closet, Old Navy has released three color options for this classic shirt. There's the white with navy stripes (above), red with white stripes, and navy with multi color stripes.
Johnny Was embroidered cardigan: Not quite a Lilly-a-like, but something fun for the closet when I wish I had something fun or interesting to wear. The design from the front shoulders continues onto the back and it looks great.
