Is anyone else excited that the 90s are back? I've always loved florals, lace up boots, and a little bit of grunge. I'm excited to be teaming up with Forever21 today to show off my take on the trend! I decided to go for a dark floral shift dress, with these faux-leather cut out booties, and I also tried a new style – a choker! To be honest, I've never worn a choker before. Even in my youth! In the 90s, I was too busy being a tomboy, and didn't really get into fashion/personal style until after high school. But I love this necklace, and can't wait to figure out more ways to style it up.
I wore this outfit out to see Eric play drums in his band downtown. We quickly snapped some photos, and went in to eat pizza, drink wine and watch his band play all night. Super fun night! The weather has finally been cooling down, so now it's at least bearable to wear booties. I couldn't even fathom wearing anything other than open-toed sandals a week ago. Heat wave city. Plus, did you hear we had a tornado whip through Grand Rapids last weekend? So nuts!
What other trends are you guys looking forward to this upcoming season? Maybe not so much trends, but I'm just excited for layers and booties and chunky cardigans. My goal is also to start accessorizing more, because I'm really not an accessories gal. I rarely wear jewelry, and I used to get so much more creative with outfits with belts, or scarves, or hats. So that's a goal, and I know it'll help pull my wardrobe together more. I also finally went through and got rid of everything that doesn't fit, that I don't like, and is just meh. So I'm excited to start autumn out with a "fresh wardrobe"!
This has been such a great week so far. Two of our good friends had us over for dinner on Monday, and it was super yummy and awesome to just catch up. Today, we're going to see two other friends play a show at a new brewing company, and tomorrow, I get to host Wine Club! It's one of my favorite nights of the month, so I'm excited. Plus, the theme is sweet red... and I love my sweet red wines. What are you guys up to? I also have another post coming up with Forever21 this week, so stay tuned!
