This combination incorporates some of the trending elements from Summer 2012 that will also ease us into Fall 2012. Definitely an outfit that I can see myself wearing from now into the first part of Fall.


This summer, crochet isn’t just about your grandmother’s hobby; it’s hot and trending! While some people can pull of the head-to-toe crochet, I suggest that it is more flattering when it is subtle. That’s why I have chosen to pair these gorgeous Anna Sui crochet shorts with a more casual and classic blouse.


We’re going to be soaring high this fall. In anticipation of the fall trend, Look out for my post “Escalated Fall” later this week for more details on this Fall 2012 trend. Wedges such as these are not only comfier than stilettos, but are a great way to elongate your legs, especially when paired with tiny shorts.


Whatever you do, make sure you have your headwear ready for this summer. Hats are BIG! Not only are they a way to add a stylish edge to almost any outfit, but they’re also great for protecting your face from those potentially harmful rays.


As previously mentioned on my post “Golden Eye” we’ll be glittering in gold come fall. So why not be ahead of the game by incorporating elements into your summer wardrobe? I love this gold chunky bangle as a way of adding a little shine to the outfit.


Tassels and fringes have been around for a couple of seasons now. Ruffles have been added to the mix this season. I always like to find a way to incorporate staple pieces from previous seasons into current trends and outfits, such as this gorgeous bucket bag from House of Harlow.
