MOSTLY LISA'S 13 PIECES FOR FALL

 We’ve magically transitioned into September, and I have no idea how we got here. Days have been blurring together and I can’t believe we’re almost done with this year?! I’m quite excited though that we’re now going to be wearing more layers, pairing outfits with fun boots and I’m generally very enthusiastic about the overall aesthetic of fall. Is anyone else agree that this season is by far the prettiest of them all? I’m in my element during this time, and fashion is just an adding factor to all of it. Like I did last year, I’ve rounded up 13 items that are essential to me. This year is a little different, I’m looking into more beauty items and accessories that I would not normally wear. There’s always room to change and a new month is a great time to do so. Shop all the links below!

ON TREND: IN THE ARMY NOW

It's officially the last day of August, and so I had to do one more post for this month! I wanted to touch on something that has personally been one of my favorite trends this season, it just so happens to be one of the easiest looks that anyone can pull off. Every year we see it redone and reimagined, but I've particularly loved what I've seen lately. The military trend... I'm talking army green, boxy silhouettes, perfect tailoring and tough fabrics. For S/S '15, Valentino and Gucci took on the colors and utilitarian shapes of army dressing, and No. 21 added fun touches to transition into fall.
I don't think there's really any time where this trend isn't popular. As we're moving into different weather, this one is going to be great to pull out all the stops with. It's great for layering and for wearing on its own. When I'm wearing this trend, I really like to pair it with a comfortable pair of dark denim or a nice white blouse. It's truly a something that you can make your own, and I have to appreciate that.

SHE WORE BLUE VELVET

"She wore blue velvet
Bluer than velvet was the night
Softer than satin was the light"
 
If you've never heard Lana Del Rey's cover of "Blue Velvet", I highly recommend listening to it right now. It is the dreamiest, melodic and soothing cover I've ever heard of a song. The video is even better, especially since it's an ad for H&M! This brings me to the inspiration behind today's post, since blue velvet is such a gorgeous fabric and enhances any thing it touches. I'm really excited to see if it will come back during NYFW this year, it's such a beautiful and romantic trend that is entirely wearable. There are so many new and surprising ways that velvet can be explored and experimented on, and I hope we'll see an inventive way from some of the big designer houses. Be inspired and take a walk on the velvet side.
