Hello Yellow: These Early Fall Finds Pack Sunshine

Fall arrivals are beginning to hit stores, and my wish list is growing quickly. I’m especially excited about all the colorful styles for fall. Anthropologie, in particular, dropped a few items—a tiered fringe skirt and a chevron short set—in the most gorgeous yellow ever. Those items inspired today’s post. I’ll certainly be saying “hello yellow” this fall. You too?

This Playful and Functional Jumpsuit is Under $40

We’re getting to that tricky time of year when we should probably start thinking about fall, but it’s still hot outside. If you’re still shopping for a few fabulous pieces to finish the summer in style, this strapless printed jumpsuit is for you. It has an all-over playful print, a sexy strapless top, and a cool-girl wide leg. And, get this, the jumpsuit is only $39!

Mac “Fashion Legacy” lipstick

This jumpsuit is such an easy choice for summer days. It’s stretchy and simply pulls on. No zippers. No fuss.

I’m wearing a size small, so the jumpsuit fits true-to-size. By the way, I’m 5’4″ and need to wear this longer style with heels (about 3 inches) so it doesn’t drag on the ground.

I wore this exact combination to brunch last Sunday.

Strapless printed jumpsuit

I kept my accessories simple since this print is such a standout. My choker is an older style from J.Crew. I recently bought this mult-irow choker in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I can’t wait to style and wear it.

My sunglasses are a fabulous Miu Miu pair that I found in Nordstrom Rack. If you’re looking for an equally fabulous but more affordable pair of mirrored sunglasses, check out the under-$15 styles in this post.

How to Elevate Your Summer Basics Instantly

Summer basics can sometimes be a tad boring. But, when it’s severely hot outside, all I want to reach for are breezy basics. I do these 3 things to take my basics from boring to fabulous.

How to Elevate Your Summer Basics Instantly

Bell cuff tee (on sale) | Tie-waist shorts (on sale) | Gladiator sandals | Bag (c/o)

Kendra Scott necklace (old) | Movado Bold Sport watch

1. Pay attention to details

A breezy t-shirt and shorts are easy choices on super hot days. Choosing these items, though, with interesting details easily jazzes up the classic combination. My bell cuff white tee (now under $20) and tie-waist fluid shorts (now under $20) pack lots of pizazz.

2. Add accessories for flair

The right accessories can take any look from basic to brilliant. From statement earrings to chokers to cuff bracelets, the choices are plentiful this season. For this look, I chose an old Kendra Scott necklace with tassels.

3. Step into sandals that make a statement

Statement sandals have been especially popular this year. From slides to lace-up sandals, add a pair that shows off your flair for style. I found these gladiator sandals by Vince for a steal in Nordstrom Rack (find more sizes also on sale here).
