MONDAY MUSE . SUMMER'S END
As much as we're savouring this last month of summer and still enjoying the chance to wear little dresses and our denim shorts, there's always an excitement that comes with the prospect of early fall and the opportunity to toss on light layers as we enjoy the summer's end. We're beginning to receive our fall collections in the shop, and with that comes the welcome challenge of incorporating new, warmer pieces into our wardrobes and transitioning into a new season. Whether it's throwing on a light sweater when you feel a chill in the evening air, or layering summer prints with darker palettes, in a lot of ways these days can be the most fun to dress for, with lots of options and layering ideas. We decided we'd start to ease into this new mindset by pulling a little style inspiration. This collection of images proves that you don't have to pack away your favourite kimono or summer florals just yet, and considering how important these two items are in our closets, we couldn't be happier about that fact.
The pyjama blouse is a style we're looking forward to incorporating into our fall wardrobes, especially paired with distressed denim. Try our PRESS Pyjama Blouse for a classic black and white version.
One of the best parts of a cooler season is being able to invest in knits, and we're loving neutral styles that have special detailing, like the MAURIE & EVE Celestine Jumper, with it's clever cutouts in the back.
We've never been one to stick by fashion "rules", and believe that white can be worn all year around, especially with light layers and mixed with darker colours and textures. We can't get enough of the FREE PEOPLE Voile & Lace Trapeze Slip, which adds just the perfect amount of feminine whimsy to any outfit.
Printed styles always have a starring role in our ensembles, and we love the opportunity to mix them into outfits in new ways. With a slightly darker colour palette, the MAURIE & EVE Aurelie Layer Skirt makes the transition perfectly.
Ivory lace and black leather has always been a go-to combination for us, perfectly mixing sweet with a touch of rock-n-roll. The FOR LOVE & LEMONS Loyal Crop Tank is an ideal way to add a touch of lace with the trimmed hem.
We fell in love with kimonos this summer, and though we'll be switching our little white dresses and denim cutoffs for dark skinnies and booties, we're excited about the new styling possibilities. Try the FOR LOVE & LEMONS Border Floral Kimono or the Watercolour Kimono.
