Back to the grind…kind of

I will be leaving in 2 hours to go on a surprise vacation that my boyfriend planned for us, but I wanted to share how I plan my fall wardrobe for both work and play. If you have a busy lifestyle and are always on the go, planning some looks ahead of time is essential.

I’m not quite ready to let go of the gingham trend of summer, so I bought some fall pieces that can be worn versatilely or together. The top can be paired with a bright skirt or distressed denim and sneakers, and the pants can be worn with a vintage tee or a sweater.

Reading and being aware is key for planning wardrobe from your closet or on shopping trips. Vogue Runway just posted an Instagram video today about baggy denim for all body types. My first instinct was to run to thrift stores and stock up on vintage Levis. The VMA’s were aired days ago, and bloggers are already grasping the bold color concept that was seen on the purple carpet before the event. Jared Leto sported an all sequined Gucci shall in cobalt blue, green, and crimson red.

Buying pieces that can be seen at the office and on the streets is smart. Sneakers are passing for dress shoes and elastic waistband, pleated trousers are passing as dress pants. With more jobs demanding travel and creativity, this world craves versatile pieces that can be thrown in a suitcase. Don’t forget a steamer!

Every girl needs a pair of black heels. I bought these years ago from Nasty Gal; shop similar here. They have been through photoshoots, business meetings, and night events. The white heel gives them a unique factor that adds interest to a basic element.

We all need 1..2..10 pairs of sunnies. I usually take my round and slim gold metal Oscar de la Renta shades with me on my travels because they go with everything. They keep me away from the basic aviator.

Analyzing trends and where they set off influence is a way to minimize the rush of getting clothes on your downtime between trips. It will give you more time prepare for your travels and have one less thing to worry about.
