Buy This, Not That: Fall Is Around the Corner

Happy Friday Eve! I’m back today sharing a few fall accessories I’ve been lusting over lately. It’s all too easy to scroll through instagram lately and find beautiful things that you want just to find out they are way out of your price range. That’s exactly what my Buy This, Not That series is all about!

I definitely love high end, designer items just as much as the next fashion blogger. However, buying a $1400 bag whenever I want isn’t my reality (if its yours, go you!!) so I have to find alternatives. I am loving this dupe from SheIn. I first posted about SheIn a long time ago and I still love this website. They have so many on trend items for amazing prices. Plus shipping is free, my favorite type of shipping! 🙂 

If cute bags aren’t your thing maybe shoes are? The mule trend is giving me life right now. I love all the different styles out there including these and these if you like a little more flair than the nude ones. What’s so great about this trend is that they are uber comfy and can be worn during late summer and all the way through fall!

Last but not least what’s a fall fashion post without mentioning some super on trend booties? Last year I bought some maroon suede booties I shared about in this post. When I saw the blush ones floating around social media I knew I needed them, now who’s going to hint that to #everydaymr?? We do have an anniversary coming up 🙂

Romper with a Side of Fun

It’s a new day which means a new outfit!! I’ve been feeling a little uninspired lately and needed to shake some things up. I love adding different colors, patterns and textures together and this is just what this outfit does! One of my new favorite boutiques is Hello Ruby-a mobile boutique in Omaha. If you’re local you definitely need to check out their schedule for where they will be popping up next! I picked up this romper from Hello Ruby last week at the College World Series. I love rompers because it takes no thought so when you aren’t inspired to put together an outfit a romper is the perfect go to! 

I think so many women (sorry guys I’m not a fan of the male rompers) think rompers aren’t for them but really it’s not much different than shorts paired with a top! I gravitated towards this romper for its neutral yet so on trend colorway and for the uniqueness of the ties on the arms. 

Here I wore it with a fun statement necklace (yay fringe!) and my little pom pom sneakers because my mom always told us to wear closed toed shoes while riding our bikes-look mom I listened!

And of course since it’s National Sunglasses Day I threw on a pair of my favorite Quay sunnies.

On a side note apart from the outfit, I received a Kat Von D matte liquid lipstick in my last Sephora play box and I’m loving it! It goes on so smoothly, lasts and doesn’t come off on everything.

I’m also thinking this romper put with a pair of red tassel earrings would make the perfect 4th of July outfit! If you’re local to Omaha and haven’t checked out the Hello Ruby boutique you definitely need to. Check out where they will be next here.

Easy, Summer Fashion

Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway through the week and Omaha is abuzz with College World Series starting this week. It’s my first College World Series and I have to say I’m pretty excited to experience it for the first time! But back to the fashion, I’m sharing a super simple easy breezy summer fashion look.

I know a lot of people aren’t a big fan of online shopping but I definitely am! So many places offer free shipping and free returns so it’s honeslty a no brainer for me. Online shopping is also great for trendy, seasonal pieces that you might not want to invest in from the bigger department stores. Even if it isn’t free shipping as long as its reasonably priced it’s probably still worth it when you take into account your time driving to the store, gas etc. And if it doesn’t fit, just return or exchange it! No harm, no foul 🙂

Speaking of online shopping, I’m sharing an easy summer look today! I love the color blocking of this dress and the weight of it. Though its a 100% cotton it has the look of linen without all the wrinkles. The dress is a little oversized and has a boxier fit so I paired it with this belt from LOFT I’ve had for a couple years to bring in my waistline though I like it without also!

I’ve also shared these earrings a couple times and I’ve worn them so many times that my cost per wear is seriously low by this time! These are from Nickel & Suede, they are the color Minty Fresh in the large size. (p.s. minty fresh are the earring of the month so they are only $18!)

I’ve also been loving the straw bag trend lately but haven’t loved most of the pricing I’ve seen around the web. This was a great buy from Amazon of all places and holds just the essentials! Shop it here.

These shoes are also from Shop Alter Ego and are my new faves. I bought the closed toe booties like these from Free People last fall and wanted the open toed version but without paying that price tag. When I found these I knew I had to have! They fit true to size and come in several colors.

Of course my arm party and necklaces are from Stella & Dot, shop those here. Now I have to figure out what I’m wearing to CWS this weekend! Happy Wednesday friends!

KCFW: in the details

The final night of KCFW was one for the books! The runway show included many KCFW “veterans” and they didn’t disappoint. For me the final evening was all in the details.

Here was my outfit for the evening! Top and shoes from Pink Saloon, pants from Target Who What Wear line, jewelry from Stella & Dot

I loved all the details in every line from the evening. I especially enjoyed how each designer’s collection was so different from the others.

This collection from Barbara Bultman was a serious stunner. With the deep, rich colors and all the textures it definitely wasn’t a bore.

This train was amazing and so different from your usual train. Maybe perfect for a beach wedding??

Next up were some fabulous jewelry designs from Georgina Herrera. This jewelry is seriously like no other. I also loved how the designer chose to have two models walk down both sides of the runway at the same time. Was a great change up and gave the audience so much to look at!

People in the audience were actually gasping when this model came down the runway because it was so amazingly intricate.

Is there such a thing as too many jewels and metals?? I don’t think so!

Beautifully paired outfits with Georgina’s jewelry designs.

The last designer was Christian Michael’s new women’s line, sHe. 

I think hands down this was my favorite line of the runway events I went to. 

The entire collection was in black and white and incorporated different stitching techniques and varying hemlines.

Love the quilted look of this overcoat with the Cruella deVille like collar.

There wasn’t an outfit he put down the runway that I didn’t enjoy.

And a couple more looks from Barbara Bultman because I just couldn’t narrow it down!

Overall I had an amazing experience this season at KCFW. I liked the change of venue and the European style runway. We were up close and intimate with the models and really were able to take in all the details. Want to see more? Be sure to follow @kc_fashionweek on Instagram!
