Trending Picks

In my younger years
I almost prided myself in not following trends.

But now at my age of 57
I think it's important as a designer
to be aware of fashion trends
to remain visually relevant.
Plus at my age
it's fun to try new ideas!

But , that said
I am also very particular in choosing trends
that work for me personally.
I want to incorporate just a few trends into my wardrobe
to freshen up pieces I already own.

I never want to add new trends
that don't speak to me or my lifestyle.

This fall I decided to add a pair of trendy mod ankle boots to my 
neutral wardrobe base.

I found these at Zara last week
for a price that made it easy to try out 
a new style.

I added the boots to a trending piece I already owned from Zara last year
wide legged cropped pants.

Since I collect wardrobe neutrals
it was easy to shop my closet for ensemble
finishing pieces

Like this new shawl wrap I picked up at Target recently.
Here in Southern California 
wraps are particularly useful since
we  rarely have real coat weather.

I also just love the easy drama and finish
 a wrap
 can add to about any outfit.

I am also a firm believer in collecting accessories
in color groups as well.
That way it's a continual mix and match of pieces
for different occasions.

If you follow me on Instagram
you have seen these new glasses
that I found in a charming vintage store in Orange.

When piling on the accessories
I always make sure to keep my hair
pulled back .

I have a DIY for this hair style HERE

What ways are you freshening up your fall wardrobe this season?

I'd love to hear!

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
