This dress is hands down one of my best purchases lately. It’s simple, yet different with the lace detailing and the contrast length. I absolutely love it and because it’s still warm outside I paired it up with a pair of pink flats. During cooler days, I envision wearing this dress with tights and booties with a nice cardigan on either in black or brown tones. It will look equally amazing! The quality of this dress is the same as in other stores – really good! If you’re looking for a trendy and versatile dress with an edge and that will be great for any season, this one is the one!

I love how my bag matches the flats and that they are both made of suede, which as you know from my 2017 Fall Fashion Trends post, is very popular this season. I bought the bag first and then when I saw the exact pink suede shoes, I knew they would be a perfect match for this particular bag. They are very comfortable I must say!

The bracelet is simple yet modern and I absolutely love the goldstone finish of it. This piece, because of simplicity and sleekness, will go with any outfit.

You’re going to love this one for Fall! I’m wearing this brown linen dress in a pre fall style here, with just a pair of sandals, but imagine how great this dress would look in Fall with tights, booties, scarf and maybe even a round brim Fedora hat. It probably will look great no matter how you wear it. It’s perfect for transitional weather as the fabric is really thick and seems very durable. The longer sleeves are also perfect for in between weather. The nicest detail of this outfit is of course the longer back, which makes it very trendy. Isn’t the color beautiful too? I just saw a similar linen dress in another store and it was over $100! Guess how much you will pay for this one? Only $22! It should be much more for as good as it is though.

My accessories today are a pair of leaf earrings that I got last year and a necklace that I’ve had for a while now too. I thought these would go perfect with this dress.

This romper is the cutest thing ever! The long sleeves are perfect for transitioning to Fall as well as the shades of grey, blue and plum that you can spot on this piece. I also love its loose fit and this beautiful floral fabric is of a great quality too. You’re going to love this romper for sure!

I paired it with the bag I put on my Fall Wish List post this year. It’s an oversized brown cross body bag that I know is going to be perfect for fall and one that I will definitely need. Brown is a staple Fall color and it goes with all other Fall colors like green, burgundy, mustard and more. If you need a Fall bag for this season, this one is the one to get.

Because it’s not quite Fall yet, I opted for my brown sandals to go with this outfit, but you could easily wear this romper with brown booties as well and a nice cardigan to make it more for cooler weather.

My accessories today are a pair of blue earrings – a nice complement to the blue shade on the romper. I’m also wearing this beautiful Stella Spike Choker from Valley Rose Studio that I absolutely love. I actually got it customized per request to make it a little bit longer and it turned out really well. It gives off that boho vibe and I think it went well with this entire look.

I’m still living in dresses as it’s still hot and summery here. This floral print shirt dress is so beautiful it makes you fell pretty when you wear it. I absolutely love its print, and, by the way, is it just me or did I see a similar one at Zara? The quality of the fabric is amazing too. It is very light and flowy – perfect for summer. The silhouette of this dress is pretty interesting too, with buttons to the waist only, and the belt that you can tie on the side. This dress, hands down, can become your favorite dress of the summer. It’s perfect for work, a lunch meet up, or just a shopping day. I even bet you will get a lot of compliments. Did I mention it’s only $20?

I paired it up with blue accessories – a pair of flower earrings and a beaded marble bracelet that you might remember from my Blue and Purple Bohemian Summer Dress post.

Also, because of the light color of the dress, I opted for white sandals and a white cross body bag. PS – those sandals are currently on sale for only $12.

Ruffles have made a big impact on the fashion world this year and it doesn’t seem like they are going anywhere. You can already see the ruffled details on fall flats, bags, cardigans, and basically any piece of clothing you can imagine. Celebrities and bloggers all over the world have embraced the trend greatly and, as a result, you can see them sporting the look on the streets, at fashion shows or any other events they attend. I prepared a simple inspirational board with all things ruffles so you can get yourself trendy for fall.

Today I’m sporting quite a pinkalicious look. How adorable is this striped dress? I absolutely love the color palette because the combo of pink and brown is one of my favorites. It’s even better that the colors are bright which makes this dress look very fresh. The ruffle sleeves and the back detail are both beautiful accents that make this dress trendy and modern, at the same time giving it that parisian flare. I have to tell you, you’re going to love the light and breathable fabric of this dress, perfect for hot summer days. Another thing you’re going to love is the price of this stunner! It’s only $13. Yes, you heard it right. Oh, and it comes in six different patterns altogether. Each of them is quite different from the other so it’s not only the colors that are different. I definitely encourage you to check them all out.

My bag is my new purchase, but unfortunately I bought it on sale and it’s no longer available. Good news, the same store carries a very similar option and I listed the details below, so check it out too. It’s made of suede and leather. I’m not sure if you noticed, but you’re going to see suede everywhere this fall – mark my words!

Hello everyone! Here is my August Instagram roundup since there were quite a few outfits that you might have missed if you don’t follow me on Instagram  (@glamorandgloss). For those of you who do not, I highly recommend it since I post new outfits almost daily on there, unlike here on the blog. Also, as a reminder, you can find all my Instagram pictures on my Instagram Shop page on this blog! I’m trying to make it easy for you so that you don’t miss any of the outfits I post. This month, especially, there have been a lot of great pieces I have snatched for a great price (and most of the prices are even cheaper now). So, take a look and enjoy shopping!

When you think about an eyelet embroidered dress, chances are you see a white summer dress that you can wear at the beach. Oh, how a color can change the dress! Would you think of this black dress as such? The black makes this dress oh so much more sophisticated and glamorous, in my opinion, and makes the dress more versatile. Paired with a pair of black heels and a nice black clutch, it can make for a nice summer date night look. Wear it with a pair of black ankle boots and a white brim felt fedora hat for an edgier look, or simply make it casual like I did, and wear it during any summer day with a pair of black or white sandals (brown would work too) and a matching crossbody bag.

What I love about this dress it obviously its beautiful embroidery, but also the fluted sleeves that are very popular this summer. The dress is very light and breathable, but it does run big so make sure to read the size chart before ordering. Great news! This dress comes in several different colors, and all are so adorable.  I want them all, but the new colors that I’m most excited about are burgundy and mustard yellow.  Just in time for fall!

My earrings are an older purchase and they were perfect for this entire look. The bag is from Aldo, but I found other places you can buy it from as well. Details below:

Based on the color palette that consists of mustard, green, burgundy, grey and brown, I think you’ve noticed these are my fall wish list items this year. There is always something you need for the upcoming seasons and, what a surprise, I realized I need a lot of things.

I would really love to get some new cardigans this fall and the Draped Neck Cardigan With Belt caught my eye immediately because of its beautiful mustard color. I have to tell you it looks even better in person. I also love it in sand! Decisions, decisions!

How about the Striped Open Cardigan? It’s lighter, which would be great for the beginning of fall/end of summer, and the striped color just scream fall. Don’t you agree?

Also, I wouldn’t mind a new jacket and I actually wanted one in blue last year. That’s why this Garment-Dye Utility Jacket is a must buy for me this year.

I have about three pairs of booties that are still in good condition from the previous years, but I would really like to have the Ultra Khaki Booties because, why not. The color is amazing and they would go with my green utility jacket as well as the Large Saddle Crossbody Bag, which, by the way, is another must buy for me this season. I’ve been eying it forever as I know it’s what I need (perfect size and color) to match many of my outfits.

The Marled Ruffle Cuff Sweater is just so cute, who wouldn’t want one? It’s perfect for jeans with a pair of the Ultra Khaki Booties, for example. It would look great for work or just any other day.

Last, but not least, I’ve been on the lookout for a new square size wallet to fit my smaller size bags. After a long search, I finally found this Jackson Street Jada Wallet that is exactly what I’ve been looking for. It’s even better that it’s sporting this beautiful plum color that is the perfect choice for fall, right?

What’s on your fall wish list this year?

I can’t tell you enough what a great investment white pair of shorts are. You can pair them with any top, sweater, cardigan, sweatshirt, you name it and you can create whatever look you want. White goes with everything so it’s really easy to plan your outfit around white pair of shorts. I already got my money’s worth from this pair as I’ve been wearing them quite a lot! Do you remember the plaid top and white shorts look I sported a while ago? (Click here for a reminder).

But enough about my shorts! The focal point of this entire outfit is this gorgeous floral print top with flute sleeves. Isn’t it adorable? Again, it’s a very versatile top you can wear many ways on many occasions. It’s going to be great for work, dinner, parties, casual days, etc. Because it’s still warm here, I decided to wear it with shorts and a brown pair of sandals, but it would also look great with jeans and a cute pair of booties for fall.

For accessories, I’m wearing a blue pair of earrings which mingle perfectly with the blue flowers on the top.

The blouse is on sale for only $12.99! I believe it’s sold out online but you can still get it in every store.
