Little Miss Sunshine

Technically summer doesn’t officially end until the end of September but in the retail world it seems like after Fourth of July they switch to back to school and fall fashion mode. As much as I hate the thought of summer ending I’m trying to look on the bright side and focus on my love for fall fashion and of course the end of summer sales. Although most of the sales involve summer merchandise like shorts, rompers, tanks, and so on, with the art of layering you can certainly transition those pieces into the fall.



It seems like H&M rarely has sales because their merchandise is so inexpensive anyway but 80% off select merchandise piqued my interest. With only a few minutes to shop I found two items that were calling my name.


I first picked up this beautiful skirt. I love the unique tie-dye design and the mustard color. I can see myself wearing this skirt into the fall because of that rich color. The skirt is flowy and high-waisted which I like. It’s not as long as a maxi skirt but not as short as a mini skirt just the perfect in between.


Since picking up this skirt for only $15 I knew I wanted a fitted cream colored top to bring out the cream color in the skirt and not take away from the beauty of the yellow shade. I wanted something fitted so I can have the option to either tuck it in or knot it. I chose this simple $5 t-shirt and it goes great with my skirt and many other pieces in my closet. Funny thing is that it’s not supposed to be off the shoulder but the shoulder area fits a little weird and loose so a simple off the shoulder fix did the trick.



For jewelry I am loving anything gold and anything with tassels. So this Charming Charlie necklace matched perfectly with my outfit and the whole vibe of the look.


Shoes were a no brainer. I chose to wear another pair of my vintage Candies wedges. They are a little high so taking photos on a rocky surface was a challenge. Luckily I didn’t fall. That’s an accomplishment.


This summer I discovered my love for summer fedora like hats. I totally need to expand my hat collection because if I post myself wearing this hat one more time on my blog or Instagram I have a feeling my readers will be like what the heck we get it, you like that hat. I can’t help it but I just feel so fashion forward in my hat plus it covers up any bad hair days.


 Lastly, before heading out the door I grabbed my favorite Steve Madden sunglasses. They are not new to the blog. See how I style them here.


Between the H&M sale and the Zara sale (look out for a new post featuring Zara soon), I have been shopping like crazy. I guess that’s what happens when your day consists of analyzing fashion trends, reading style blogs, and spending the days in New York City. My closet is happy, but my wallet not so much.


Hope everyone is enjoying their summer and continue to soak up the summer sun before it’s gone. Let me know in the comments below what sales you have been shopping lately and some of your favorite pieces purchased. See you all in my next post.

    I love your new mustard skirt from H&M!! I definitely agree that pieces can be transitioned into fall by layering several things together, especially if the items are in fall-like colors!
