Can you even believe next week is September??? I can’t at all! All the fall catalogs and new releases have me itching for it though. And while I won’t get to wear many of the trends due to my “condition”, I can focus on some of them- namely ponchos/capes (great for a nursing mama), boots (a may splurge on those over the knee ones since I can see myself in leggings and boots all fall and winter) and great outerwear.
This time of year is a little tricky for shopping- all the new fall stuff is coming out but it’s still sweat-your-mascara-off hot. So while welcoming Ron Herman back as an EOS sponsor, I thought I’d pull together my favorites on the site for both seasons (and in between!) They have a California-cool selection for men and women with both basics and whimsical choices. Plus, they are offering EOS readers 20% off their purchase with the codeelementsofstyle20! Happy shopping! 1. // 2. // 3. // 4. top & bottom // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. // 10. // 11. // 12. // 13. // 14. // 15. // 16. (one of my all time fave body lotions) // 17. // 18.

The midi skirt is the hot silhouette for fall (in suede and denim) but it’s also a length that is great to wear any time of year and for any occasion. Grown up and lady-like, these skirts can work on a variety of body types (for those of you who are of shorter stature, hemming and tailoring skirts this length make them work for you too!)
I LOVE this streamlined, chic all black look- a mix of textures in lace and cashmere with a pop of red.
Here’s a recreation of the look what could be worn out to dinner in warmer temps with the short sleeve tee or in the fall with the cashmere tee!) Also, this hair serum is AWESOME- keeps my blow outs smooth and frizz free even in humid days.
A couple of you asked for a an updated bump pic, so Andrew snapped one yesterday while we are here on Nantucket ( the man is many things but one of them is not a photographer). I love Nantucket for many reasons, but one of them is that I feel I can indulge in my stripe obsession freely. In fact I packed only stripes- this dress ($18 from H&M Mama– I love ALL their maternity stuff) and striped tees with jeans. :) Nothing easier than a striped tee shirt dress, denim jacket, sandals and fun necklace to look put together and yet super comfy.
A couple days shy of 6.5 months!
So here are a few good striped dresses for those expecting and not expecting. SUCH a staple, if you don’t have one- get one!
I love it when the early fall releases come out. And while I am happy to have summer a bit longer, I can’t help but start transitioning my purchases to pieces I’ll more likely wear in September/ October. Really, retail forces it on you as the summer stuff is well picked over, and the fresh new items are so tempting! Currently I am feeling a classic red blazer SO MUCH. I saw the new colorway of my fave Regent blazer in the new J.Crew releases, and know i have to get one. Paired with denim and a little leopard it’s a classic, cool look from Paris to New York. And since I’ll be ginormous in October, I included some options to make this look work for pregnant ladies too!
