How has your summer been? It has been really hot here in Virginia, with temps being in the 100’s. I love the summer, but I have been finding myself starting to look at some fall colors. NO, I am not ready to make the transition. But this is August, time for the kiddos to start school, and that means fall is just around the corner.
I went to a Dollar store the other day, looking for some decorations for an upcoming workshop I am planning. I turned down one of the aisles, and there it was. Thanksgiving decorations!!! That is crazy? What happened to Halloween? I have heard of Christmas in July, but never Thanksgiving. Lol!I think fall must have been on my mind when I picked out this outfit. Purples and mustard are two fall colors that I love. One of the things I like best about fall is the rich colors. Everything is dark and rich, and the colors are almost jewel tones.Speaking of jewels, I tell you what I have on. Lol! I have on a Lolita necklace , which says, “She walks by faith, even when she can’t see.” The key necklace is called Quincy. I am a big fan of the vintage style keys, so this necklace is fast becoming a favorite. Remember, I have a contest for the month of August. Everyone who makes a Plunder purchase from me, will be entered for a $25.00 gift certificate that I will give away. Here is the plunder website: http://www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens that will have you shopping with me. Try copying and pasting this in the address line, and hopefully it will work. If not, then type in my stylist number 241007 in the stylist box at checkout. I have started an online party, and there is a dropdown box where you can choose Tania’s P Party at checkout also.My favorite part of this look is the vest. The vest is several years old, and the best part is, it is reversible. I bought two of these vests at a woman’s club convention, and I have worn them several times. With it being reversible, it gives off a different look, and makes a different statement, when you wear it the reversed. The underside of this vest in more in the beige family, with just hints of purple. I admit, I like the purple side better. You know I love color.
Fringe Vest: Brown | Blue | Multi/tealThe mustard color tank top is by Van Heusen. I bought it last year on my way to Atlanta for a vintage fashion show. It was a strange color for me to choose. I normally like brighter, more vibrant colors. But, something about this muted shade spoke to me. I bet I end up wearing it a lot this coming fall.
Mustard Top: Spaghetti Strap | Similar | PlusIt has been a while since I have worn jeans. Other that to go motorcycle riding, I don’t think I have had on jeans all summer. I only have a pair or two that are capri jeans. One pair is a boyfriend cut, and they look so baggy on me, so I hardly ever wear them. The other pair is a girlfriend cut, I like the cut, but they are extremely distressed. This is a pair of Earl Jeans, and I think I bought them at Ross. I just did a large cuff on them, and I think they look great for summer.
Skinny Jeans: Similar | Distressed | PlusI could just see me wearing my converse sneakers with these jeans. The red ones that I had monogrammed are adorable, but not for this look. And the gray ones with the polka dots are cute, cute, cute. But, again, not the look I was going toward. I felt more of a boho vibe with the vest, so I decided on the fringe sandals by Sole Society. I am leaning toward wearing these also to the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam in Panama City this Labor Day. What do you think? Will these go with the country atmosphere? I am thinking there will be sand everywhere, so I thought sandals would be easier to shake the sand out than a boot or sneakers. Click on the ad to the right to find out more about the event.I have had this fringe purse since last December. I never took the tags off till today. It was also a Ross purchase, and it was only 29.99. Here’s the kicker, it is leather. I thought the color of the purse and the sandals are almost identical. I am naming them fawn.
Fringe Purse: Similar | Similar | SimilarI ended up wearing the vest open for the most part of the day. I liked it both ways, but it was a pain to keep tied. Since I was all in the boho mood, I added four of my plunder bracelets. They were the Frances, the Halsey, the Odette, and the Skye. I like how this look all bunched up together, but I also like them worn separately.
I wanted to thank everyone for all the great suggestions about concert wear. I have a lot of ideas swirling around in my mind. I went through my closet, and found several items that will work. I will only have to add a few “country” touches. I am going to try to add a song everyday till the concert from one of the artists that will be in attendance. Be sure to stay tuned to see how YOU can win tickets to come and have fun with me!!! How about a little Jake Owen to get you in the mood for a summer concert?
