Bring out your scarves!

Sandals aren’t just for the beach.

Until the weather really plummets, don’t be scared to keep wearing your favorite flirty sandals! Paired with skinny jeans, sandals are a great way to ease your way into fall. (It’s not snowing yet!) Look for fall colored, strappy sandals to take the place of a wedge during more casual get-togethers or a Saturday shopping expedition. For a put together look, stick with a more fashion-forward pair and leave your beach flip-flops at home.Summer Sandals

Colors and Patterns

Summer crops and bright-colored skinnies are here to stay! Look for a top with trendy patterns, including metallic shine and fun prints. Keep with neutral and more muted shoe choices, like nude flat or suede wedge to keep your look classic. Bold accessories can also break up your look to avoid an “oh-no” overboard moment.
