Buy Now, Wear Now, Wear Later

It’s summer sale season and nobody loves a good sale more than me. I plan on scooping up some dresses (hello, Madewell) and some cotton t-shirts (thank you, UNIQLO!) at great sale prices to get through the hot days ahead. With summer approaching, she will need plenty of warm weather items to get her through until school starts again. What about back to school? How can these pieces transition into back to school? A little wardrobe magic, that’s how! Many of the trends we know and love for summer will continue to be popular into the fall. Boho prints, jogger pants, and flowy silhouettes will still be the looks she craves when fall rolls around. Get the most from her summer pieces with a few additional items that will take her from summer break to the school hallways in one swift move. Buy now, wear now, wear later… It’s a great philosophy! With great sale prices now, there’s never been a better time to pick up some great pieces that will transcend a couple of seasons.

Boho Print

dixie-mable-top-frontJak & Peppar pieces are a great investment, many of the collections feature colors that are gorgeous any time of the year. This Dixie Mabel tunic from the Sun Gypsy collection is no exception, with shades of red, pink, taupe, and black swirling about in all its mixed pattern glory. The Dixie Mabel is long enough to wear as a dress now, then pairs effortlessly with a long sleeve black top from Splendid and her favorite leggings and boots for fall.

Black-print-girls-jumpsuit-frontRompers and jumpsuits have been one of the leading trends for 2016 at LaBella Flora. This jumpsuit from Hannah Banana features an all-over print with button and lace detailing. Getting dressed when you’re wearing a one-piece outfit is crazy easy, and it’s a fashionable look for dinners out or evening beach walks. When she heads back to school, throw on a cozy wrap from T2 Love for a school-appropriate ensemble.

Jogger Pants

tie-dye-pants-frontJoggers have to be one of my favorite trend pieces as of late; this style is a chic interpretation of the current athleisure craze. Comfort and style collide with the tie dye joggers from T2 Love. These soft pants are great for summer evenings with a sleek black tank top. Jog right into the school year by pairing these with a rocker chic graphic tee from 3 Pommes for an eclectic, individualistic look.

Flowy Clothing

Spring-Tween-Dress-Rita-FrontThis tunic dress from People’s Project LA is adorable! The flowy cut is comfortable, and the ties with tassels at the end are just the right details. The awesome paisley print is in unexpected shades of navy blue and orange, making it striking. Even heading back to school, she won’t want to cover up that awesome print, which is why this crochet cardigan from Tru Luv is the perfect layering piece. Match with her favorite pair of boots and she is ready to go!


Delicate lace and pretty crochet highlight this flowy fit Tru Luv tank. This is the perfect pairing for a pair of denim shorts for the summer, for a free-spirited look. The T2 Love wrap in navy is the perfect complementary piece that instantly makes this a cool weather look.
