One of the continuing trends from last year is the menswear inspired trend. Blazers were huge during the fall 2017 season, and they have proven to be a huge trend again this fall 2018 season. If you didn’t jump on the menswear inspired blazer trend last year, this might be a good time to jump right in! Blazers are a great, lightweight option for outerwear this season!

Blazers can be worn with everything from jeans, to dressy trousers. They are also a great topper for a little black dress! The fun thing about menswear inspired blazers is that if you buy one as part of a suit, then you have a skirt or pair of pants you can mix and match into your wardrobe too. Love that!

So, have you noticed an uptick in “Clueless” fashion references online lately? Well, I almost choked on my tea when I spotted this yellow plaid blazer for fall 2018. It screams “Clueless” and it also has a matching mini skirt and pants! Mmmmm, where did the inspiration for that outfit come from? Thought to ponder . . .

Here is the movie inspired look!

Fall 2018 shoe trends: kitten heels

fall 2018 shoe trends kitten heels

Fall 2018 shoe trends kitten heels from top left: black ankle pump / white kitten heel bootie (under $150!) / blue and black bow tie mule / grey animal print bootie (under $200!) / leopard print kitten heel bootie (under $250!) / black kitten heel bootie with small studs /

Theeeeeeeeey’re baaaaaaa-aaaaack! That’s right! Those tiny little skinny heels are back, and they are everywhere for the fall 2018 season. Meow!

If you have started to shop for fall 2018 shoes, you may have noticed a trend in both heel height and shape. You are not hallucinating, the kitten heel has returned for the fall season, leaving fashionistas slighter shorter this season. Where is my free height? Short girl over here asking for some inches! (See me waving my hand high and fast! No? Must be my kitten heels keeping me short, I need some height!)

Despite the fact that kitten heels only provide one inch of height at most, they are actually comfortable as long as you don’t mind balancing on a stiletto width heel. Kitten heels don’t put very much pressure on the balls of your foot, and they have just enough height to provide a bit of arch support. They are a great alternative to flats this season; especially if you are like me, and try to avoid flats at all costs.

I purchased a pair of white kitten heel booties and they are a great option when I don’t want to wear my high heel booties. I also love the 1950s vintage vibe kitten heels provide. We haven’t rocked a lot of 1950s trends lately, so it’s refreshing to take something from that decade and make it new again.

The kitten heel is being found on all of the fall 2018 shoe trends right now. You can find them on boots, booties, mules, pumps, and slides. Put a bow on the mules or add an animal print to the booties, and you have an IT item of the season. Love that!

I love kitten heels on booties, but when it comes to pumps, I prefer a higher heel. What is your take on kitten heels? Will you rock this fall 2018 shoe trend or will you skip it? What is your favorite shoe style with a kitten heel this season?

wearing: earrings c/o Chico’s / statement necklace c/o Chico’s / ivory v-neck tee c/o Chico’s (avl in many colors!) / mixed print reversible kimono c/o Chico’s / handbag / bootcut jeans c/o Chico’s / booties /

How gorgeous is this kimono?! When I first laid eyes on it, I fell in love instantly! The mixed prints are so pretty, and I love the details on the sleeves; and the fact that it is reversible!

Mixed prints have been a huge trend the past few seasons, and the look is showing no signs of slowing down. Rocking this trend is not for the faint of heart, but thankfully Chico’s has done it in a way that makes mixed prints easy to wear; even for the most conservative dressers.

This kimono features one-of-a-kind, hand-painted prints designed in-house by artists for Chico’s. The prints are exquisite and unique. I love knowing that few people are walking the streets in this print; except for the people who bought this kimono. The print has a vintage vibe to it, giving it a nod to the season’s boho-chic trend. Love!

Did I mention this kimono is reversible? Love that!

This kimono is the perfect topper for any casual outfit or solid colored, casual dress. It’s really pretty, and great to wear during fall as temperatures start to cool down.

I originally planned to wear this outfit at New York Fashion Week; but, as you know, due to my medical emergency, I wasn’t able to travel across the country for fashion week. It would have been fun wearing this kimono to the shows! Now, it is one of my go-to casual looks for the fall season. Of course, my daughter has already stolen this kimono from me. I need to sneak back into her room and take it back! What can I say, girl has good taste. haha
