I hope everyone had a great weekend. As October draws near, I look forward to the Fall festivities in the area, Octoberfests … As you know I am a wine lover , but in Charlotte, we have had quite a few breweries pop up, so I will “try” some beers and see if I can find one I like ! Hubby bought this Pumpkin Shanty and it was a bit fruity which I seem to go for with beer, light and fruity. What fall activities are you look forward to? Anyhow, on the fashion front, I have been seeing this trend popping up everywhere: Jacquard. Purses, shoes, skirts, embellished tops, are making their way to retailers, and I love it!
I have a few pieces in my closet and really do love the richness and opulence of this material. I was also in the mood for some leopard print today. This skirt from Ann Taylor, has been a great mainstay in my closet, as we know leopard to be a neutral and this can be worn many different ways throughout Fall and Winter. Mixing patterns, neutral looks, or bright colors paired with this skirt would certainly transition to Fall nicely. I typically would wear this a little later in the season, as it is still warm here, and jacquard is a slightly heavier material. But, let’s face it, I am impatient!
I paired this with a teal blue blouse, vintage teal blue necklace and earrings, and added a mix of rich patterns with my LV Speedy and leopard print. These chocolate colored pointed block heels finish off the look. I love the ankle strap of this shoe as well as the comfort!
I am in the market for a low block heel leopard bootie for Fall as well. Help me find some!
Here are a few other jacquard items I love for Fall:
Love this skirt from ASOS
City Bag from Zara: Love this!
Have a great weekend!
