Stripes fall 2017 is a hot trend which started on the fall 2017 runways and has hit the streets for the upcoming cool weather season. I absolutely love stripes; especially when they are mixed up and going in all different directions. haha That is how they were shown on the runways!!

This stripes blouse for fall 2017 has turned into a great late summer, early fall piece. The fabric is lightweight, so it is easy to wear when the temperatures are in the 70’s. It is supposed to be a one shoulder top, but it appears to have slide up my shoulder when we took these pictures. It still looks cute! I just love this blouse!

I wore this outfit to meet up with my friend Laura from Have-Need-Want at Santana Row on Wednesday evening. It was fun for us both to take a little mommy break and get some adult time to ourselves! Big thanks to our hubbies who fed our kids dinner while we ate out!!

We met at 5pm in order to attend Kendra Scott’s fall collection kick-off party. Oh my! This collection is to-die-for! Watch for an upcoming post all about the fall collection. I really love it!

After the party, Laura and I ate a yummy dinner at Left Bank, and then window shopped around the Row. We did end up splurging a little bit at Sugarfina. So much for trying to lose ten pounds! Haha, those pounds are never going to come off me!

Stay tuned! Next week I will post my recap of the Kendra Scott fall kick-off party and show you all of my favorites from her beautiful new fall collection!

wearing: blush and gold dangle earrings / Chanel lipstick / mustard fall peplum top / pale blue nail polish / Fendi satchel / black leather and rose gold watch / dark rinse girlfriend jeans / Gucci slides (also love this pair under $100)

Our weather finally dropped back into the high seventies, so I can finally wear my summer into fall wardrobe without overheating! Yay! This mustard, fall peplum top has been hanging in my closet waiting to be worn during the late summer/early fall transition season. I’m so happy I can wear it now. It’s perfect for the current weather!

I love the fall, mustard color of this peplum top, along with the funky ruffle sleeves. The fabric is lightweight, making it appear to be a fall peplum top yet offering the comfort of a summer blouse. Love that!

These slides are super comfy too; and the whole outfit was great to slip on after my workout, and to wear throughout the day. I took my kids out to lunch at Sino Santana Row, and then I dragged them with me while I ran errands. Then, I worked for a few hours, and after I worked, I brought my girls to their archery practice. This outfit was perfect for my busy day. Love that!

Comfortable fall outfits are key now that we are ten days away from school starting! Eeek! I have two kids going back to school, and one I will be homeschooling; so life is busy right now as I get everyone ready. How is August starting out for you? Are you super busy too?

Thanks for stopping by!



how to wear peplum fall 2017

Early fall casual outfit

wearing: bold gold statement earrings c/o Bauble Bar / Chanel summer lipstick / fall black and white striped sweater / black layering tank top / fall dark rinse girlfriend jeans / Givenchy handbag / fall 2017 YSL nail polish / fall embroidered mules

First off, my apologies for the slightly blurry photos in this post. My adorable nine-year-old son really wanted to take my pictures and see them on the Internet, so I let him be my photographer for the day. He tried really hard, and did a good job considering he is new to using a DSLR camera!

This casual fall outfit for the early fall season is already turning into my favorite look. Although it is not fall yet, I have been sneaking in my fall wardrobe during the morning hours when the fog is in, or has just burned off. I can handle wearing heavier clothing until about 11am, and then I need to switch back to my summer wardrobe. I can tell this thin sweater will be a go-to item once the temperatures cool down around October.

The sweater is really comfortable, but it does hit right at my belt-line. To correct this, I wear a black tank top underneath the thin sweater in order to make sure my belly is not exposed. No-one wants to see that! haha

The sleeves on this sweater really elevate it from a basic fall knit to something special. I love the belt details on the arms which have a slight bell silhouette. My kids get a kick out of it! They think the sleeves are “really fun!”

I wore this outfit out to an early lunch the other day with my kids. I took them to Straits at Santana Row, and we enjoyed a yummy lunch; and ordered too much food. Can I just tell you, we had leftovers for days!!

These fall 2017 slides were comfortable for walking around, and I love that I can wear them in any weather. At least I can rock a fall trend all day, any day, during the rest of summer and into fall with these mules!

Which fall 2017 trends are you in love with, and are rocking right now?
