I realize that I've been playing favorites with the crochet and fringe pieces in my closet, so I gave them a rest with this ensemble...well, except for the headband. Baby steps! While shopping this week, an A-line pleated lace skirt wasn't exactly on my wish list, but when something unexpected catches my attention while shopping, I'm willing to give it a chance if it's affordable and if I can visualize how and where I'll wear it in multiple ways.  For casual days, I'll dress it down with a plain tee, denim jacket or vest, and some scuffed Converse. For now, I'm wearing it with a floral tank, my absolute favorite Sam Edelman Louie boots, and a lightweight cardigan. For fall, it'll accompany dark tights, a drapey tank top, faux fur coat, and some suede wedges.

As the stores begin to stock fall items, I'm making my list of must-haves for the new season: creepers, polka dot prints, boyish tweed blazers, tops with Peter Pan collars, vintage cashmere, mohair, and chenille sweaters, Chelsea boots, frame handbags, capes, Navajo prints, and just about anything from Topshop's Glam Underground lookbook.  Are you looking forward to fall and shopping for next season already, or are you content to live in the moment and relish the warm days of summer?

Wearing: D.I.Y. crochet headband, H&M sunglasses, Forever 21 silk floral tank, bird print cardigan, and lace skirt, belt c/o Tucker by Gaby Basora, River Island banana necklace, and Sam Edelman Louie boots (or in other colors here).
