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…

My 45-minute train ride to and from Grand Central Station consists of napping, thinking, and writing blog posts all while listening to music. I get through the not so fun commute with a little help from Spotify music. Just like not having one style of fashion I enjoy wearing, I don’t have one style of music I enjoy listening to. I listen to all sorts of genres of music, like rap, pop, alternative, and techno. However, the music I tend to listen to on the train are songs that will pump me up in the morning for the new day ahead of me and help me unwind on my way back home after a long day. Beautiful Day– U2 This is a great morning song. When all I want to do is head home and get right into my bed I know that each day is a gift and I am so lucky that every day I get the chance to be in the city I love. The lyrics, “it’s a beautiful day don’t let it get away,” inspire me to look at all the positives throughout my day. The Anthem– Good Charlotte A great pump up song. This song…

One of the many things I learned from spending two summers interning in New York City with prestigious fashion companies is that trends like to repeat themselves. Every season it seems like fashion trends in a particular decade come back again. Almost like the expression history repeats itself, it seems like fashion does too. This season is all about the 70s with the flared jeans, the 80s with patches (click here to see how I completely transformed a denim jacket with a few patches) and you can’t forget chokers for that 90s grunge. I always yell at my mom for not keeping any of her clothes from back in the day. She always responds by saying she didn’t know that 20/30 years later those trends would be huge. But luckily my mom and dad always share what they wore and what was popular back in the day. And when their memory about a certain trend is foggy the Internet is the best place to find inspiration. So keep on reading to time travel back to the 70s and embrace the flared jean trend.  Who else has been going bananas over the big Zara sale? It doesn’t help that I have…
