Trend Forecast: Jewel Tones

One of my favorite trends for fall 2020 has to be jewel tones. I love the classic white, cream, brown, and black colors that traditionally accompany fall and winter fashion, but jewel tones are making a statement this year and I’m super excited to be able to mix things up. Right now, my favorite jewel tone is ruby red (this might be because I’m an OU student and it’s incredibly close to crimson.)

I knew I wanted to pair my ruby shirt with my pleated skirt because the plaid pattern also has red in it. A match made in heaven! Since the pleated skirt already has a preppy vibe, I decided to really lean into it and accessorize with a pearl headband and matching white booties.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Headband: Pearl Headband – ROMWE
Purse: Croc Embossed Baguette Bag – SHEIN
Shirt: Rust Button-Up – Jones New York
Skirt: Plaid Pleated Skirt – H&M
Shoes: White Heeled Booties (similar)

This is one of my favorite outfits I’ve styled lately! I plan to share another post later in the season about how preppy fashion is making a comeback, so be on the lookout for that. I’m definitely a prepster at heart so all these trends are making my heart sing!

Les Bottines: An OOTD

Happy (almost) Fourth of July! I have been looking for an outfit to pair my new white booties with for a long time, and today’s red, white, and blue look made them the perfect addition! I’ve never really been a booties person (I feel like they usually make my short legs look even shorter) but I loved that these came with a tall, chunky heel. The perfect stepping stone into the world of les bottines!

I purchased these boots secondhand at Uptown Frisco– can you believe that the exact style of bootie I had been wanting to get my hands on just happened to come in my size? I’ve had great luck lately; a perk of working there is that you can get your hands on the new items as soon as they come in!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Top: Merci Shirt – Modern Lux
Skirt: Button-Up Denim Skirt (similar)
Shoes: White Heeled Booties (similar)

I think my next step in styling booties will be to figure out how to pair these with jeans. I want to make sure I can continue to wear these when fall rolls around (even though right now it feels so far away!)
