Back to School :: Plaid blazer & Vintage tee

by wendy

Happy Monday everyone!  I had a dream last night that I went back to school.  We shot this photo story near NYU and I fell asleep while editing the photos, so I think the idea of school seeped into my mind.  I loved my college years but am not sure if I want to do it again.  It took me two and a half years to pick a major or a subject of study that I was passionate about, so I graduated a semester late.  I changed my major three times, but really enjoyed every class (my favorite class was Drugs and the Brain with Dr. Presti) at Berkeley.  Graduated with a psych major, but ended up working in finance and now fashion.  Funny how life works.

Fashion Trends Class: A few key trends this fall/winter 2017 season… ’70s mood (as seen here), slouchy boots (will talk about very soon!), mini bags (as seen here), color of the season – power red, and plaid & checked patterns.  Plaid and checked blazers and coats are so much fun!  Vintage moods and a nod to British style, these prints are timeless and classic.  I love pairing checked blazers with shorts and tailored pants, and teaming plaid coats with chunky knits and sock boots.

There are so many great sales happening right now (most of them end today).  Great for now and for autumn, below are a few of my favorites:

Under $50 (with applied discounts) :: Sole Society glitter flats (perfect with simple outfits) | Sole Society cut out booties (classic for autumn) | Nasty Gal red faux leather jacket (color of the season!) | Banana Republic ruffle sleeve sweater (very pretty!) | Topshop asymmetrical sweater (key trend for fall!) | Express skinny jeans (classic slimming silhouette)

Over $100 (with applied discounts) :: H&M wool-blend checked coat (key trend for autumn!) | ASOS statement sleeve trench (classic with a twist) | Banana Republic puff-sleeve leather jacket (love this design!) | Aquatalia block heel pumps (as seen here)

Happy hunting and thank you so much for reading!
