CHSFW 2015: Day 2 Outfit

APD_3383-XL APD_3387-XL

I’m SO excited to share with y’all one of my most favorite looks to date!! This is the outfit I wore for the second night of Charleston Fashion Week. In typical Charleston fashion, the weather was 85 on Tuesday and 55 on Wednesday, so this was perfect to withstand the cooler temps! This AMAZING romper I’m wearing is Annie Griffin Collection, courtesy of Finicky Filly. I’m obsessed with the print and colors!! This style of romper is a great way to transition to spring on those chilly nights.

Considering my feet were killing me from wearing heels the entire day before and the weather, I paired this up with my Sam Edelman thigh high boots. (that I scored for $60 at Saks Off 5th) The thigh high and shorts combo is a huge trend for spring and after seeing Vanessa Hudgens rock it, I knew I had to try; and what better time than CHSFW?! I got a few crazy stares when I told people I was going to wear thigh highs and a romper, but I got a ton of compliments!! Plus, I loved the look and that’s all that really matters, right?APD_3404-XL APD_340-XL

To throw in a little pattern play, because I loveee me some pattern play, I carried my Clare V. leopard print clutch. These patterns are seriously HEAVEN together!! Sorry if I’m gloating guys, but I just really was happy with this get up!!

I accessorized with a fabulous gold chain statement necklace courtesy of Moon and Lola. This is a must have necklace for any woman and any style! You can literally put it on with just about anything and it just takes your whole outfit up a notch! I kept the rest of my jewelry simple with Moon and Lola dainty midi rings and these understated, but super cool, earrings. I actually wish I could wear this outfit everyday of my life!! I’m not sure how i’ll top this one, but keep reading all week to see more of my looks from Charleston Fashion Week!!

Happy official first day of fall everyone!!! Thanks to this rainy weather, the temperatures are actually feeling more like fall too! Dare I say the last chance to wear a shorts romper is past us? This pretty little floral number is the perfect way to close out summer! The navy color and neutral floral hues are just right for fall, while the shorts are still keeping you cool in the lingering summer heat. If I were wearing this in August I would have paired it with a pair of brown wedges, but since we’re nearing the end of September I decided to go with these suede fringe booties. I love how neutral they are but still add a burst of boho style with the fringe on the back! I will definitely be getting my wear out of these all year round with leggings and a sweater on lazy days in the cool weather and festival style cut offs and crop tops in the summer. With a low cut neckline like this, I prefer to keep the chest bare. I just think it’s so pretty to show that skin, but not too much. I accessorized fairly simply with a pair of gold earrings and my everyday gold midi rings. Another way to style this romper would be a pair of knee high boots in the same color with a chunky sweater and floppy hat. This option would be perfect if you’re in an area that actually IS chilly in September (AKA not Charleston). HAPPY FALL Y’ALL!!

I’m going to go ahead and warn y’all- you will be seeing a lot of rompers in the near future! I’ve kind of gone a little crazy for them lately, especially with all of the adorable options they have at StyleDwell right now. They’re just so cute, easy and comfortable! I’ve also decided that they are the perfect piece to help you transition into fall. Now, I live in South Carolina, where we just had the hottest day of the year yesterday and it’s not getting cool anytime soon. So I’m not in any rush to transition to boots and sweaters, but I do like to start switching the colors I’m wearing and start covering up just a bit more. There is something about kids being back in school that makes it feel wrong to be walking around in shorts and a tank all the time. Rompers are the perfect in between, and this one especially. It’s still really loose and flowy, so great for this humid weather. But, it can also be worn well into fall by throwing on a sweater. This time of year I like to keep it to sandals. I mean seriously, boots in August, that’s a no-go. But, come October when it starts cooling down you can easily throw on a pair of knee high boots or booties with this. As usual, I kept accessories to a minimum and wore my gold arm cuff which I think plays into the boho vibe of the gladiators and this print. To add a touch of a classic look to this style, I wore a structured mini bag (another recent obsession of mine) that coordinated perfectly with the blue in the romper. This is the perfect daytime look for the next month or two and then adding the cooler weather items can even carry you into the month of October. Talk about multifunctional!!
