One of the big trends I noticed on the New York runways last September was the all-white trend. So many designers favored pairing white with white and then adding either neutral or brightly colored accessories. As a Mother of three, the thought of wearing all white is a bit daunting; but I loved how the all-white ensembles looked as they graced the runways, so I thought I would give it a whirl!

I love white shirts for the summer, so this blouse from Gap seemed perfect for creating an all-white look; and wearing on casual days with jeans! I also love midi skirts right now, so of course I chose this inexpensive white skirt from ASOS. (one of my favorite online destinations with affordable and on-trend clothing!)

I wore this outfit for half a day and managed to keep it pristine! I have decided that is a win 🙂 I will definitely be wearing my all-white ensemble again this season, maybe next time with a bright color instead of black.

Have you tried the all-white trend this year? If so, did you use neutral or colorful accessories?

Over the weekend we took the kids to a local fundraising carnival. It was really fun to go on the Ferris Wheel and watch the kids go on so many rides and inside of the bouncy house. We were at the carnival for several hours so I was really happy to be wearing a comfortable pair of biker boots.

I love the biker boot trend this fall. Biker boots offer a small heel and an edgy style which spices up a casual outfit; yet allows a certain level of comfort. Love that! These biker boots have definitely been my fall 2013 “go-to” item. What is your “go-to” item(s) this autumn season?
