Trending Tuesday

I’ve always been partial to neutrals; they’re effortless and I already have a bright pop of color everywhere I go (ginger probz). When I’m up early before work, I reach first for the neutral pieces in my wardrobe that I know will go together in a pinch. I’ve been seeing a lot of head-to-toe neutrals happening all over the interwebs, so I rounded up a few pieces for this week’s Trending Tuesday PLUS some inspiration from a few of my favorite bloggers.

Trending Tuesday

Bringing back my weekly Trending Tuesday with a trend that I’ve been seeing all over the blogosphere, but that I haven’t bought into until just a few weekends ago: suede. I’ve been crazily on the hunt for a faux-suede skirt and FINALLY found one (exact one but in black!). Below are a few suede and faux-suede pieces that are perfect to inject into your fall wardrobe (all under $50 too).

1. Cupshe Faux-Suede Button-Down Skirt – I have loved these everywhere; seriously, anyone and everyone can and should wear this this fall. I’m partial to the tan/camel colored ones and have paired mine with a white button down so far. Similar options here – olive green! – and here.

2. Old Navy Suede Lace-Up Flats – This summer I grabbed up some lace-up sandals, and I’m falling all over again for this lace-up trend for fall too. Le sigh. Poor bank account. For a more neutral version: try these out.

3. Forever 21 Faux-Suede V-Neck Dress – This looks and feels even better in person, and the big pockets give it a cool vibe. Be aware that it is truly a shift shape, so wouldn’t be able to work on everyone. For that reason, here are some fit-and-flare versions: here and here.

4. Forever 21 Pointed Zip-Up Booties – The full suede/faux-suede texture amps up this classic style a bit, and the zip is a nice touch too. I’ve always loved F21 shoes and have never had any issues with something being too low quality. I treat my shoes really nicely though, as you should, so yea.:)

5. Asos New Look 70’s Suedette Saddle Bag – Love, love, love. I’ve been on the hunt for a “mini” bag, and love the saddle shape on this one. Plus, that hardware. <3

Anyone else on the hunt for suede/faux-suede pieces for fall? I’m kind of obsessed at the moment. Helpppp.

Fall Inspiration from the Greats

I’ve found that what really makes me happy & keeps me inspired is reading several blog posts throughout the day. These style bloggers wear pretty things, look gorgeous, and, most importantly, love to share their outfits and inspiration with their readers.

I’ve collected a few images from some of my favorite bloggers (the greats!) to help inspire some creativity for fall. Cue the leaves changing!
