With a new fashion season upon us, it is time to shop for new wardrobe staples. *happy dance*

In a recent stylish adventure, I worked with Versona to talk about the release of their FIRST-EVER online look book + to shop around and blog about my experience. While wandering around at the Versona at The Pinnacle in Bristol, I found the MOST AMAZING ensemble to kick off fall, and I am so excited to share it with y’all!

So, without further ado, take a look at the outfit photos below + check out the slideshow at the bottom to see photos of my absolutely fabulous shopping fun at Versona! ALSO…You’ll probably want to look up a Versona nearest you (OR SHOP ONLINE) because this year’s pieces are absolutely AMAZING! *wink*

img_0081With fall fashion comes darker hues; however, one color stands out in my mind as a staple–burgundy! 

It is such a rich color with a sassy-yet-classy personality that I cannot help but wear it year-to-year. So, for this week’s Three Ways to Wear Thursday, I am going to show y’all 3 fabulous ways to wear burgundy with some epic throwbacks. Who’s ready?! *wink*

Way One: Maxi Dress

There are countless ways to incorporate burgundy into your fall wardrobe, but why not do it head-to-toe with a maxi dress *wink*

Dress: Charming Charlie

Sandals: Born, DSW

Way Two: Leather Love

A few years ago during my time as the Grand Haul Girl for the Outlet Shoppes of Grand River, I got the most fabulous burgundy leather jacket. Even though that was about two years ago, I still sport it any chance I get because it is a twist on the normal black leather jacket.

Way Three: Boho n’ Boots

Oh, boho + boots = my ♥ I love to mix bohemian elements with harsher elements like leather because it creates a beautiful juxtaposition that just screams fall!

With fall fashion on the rise, I cannot help but want to slip little bits of summer into my outfits because I need bright color and ruffles in my life! *wink*

So, for this week’s Weekly Whistle, I am taking some summer vibes into pre-fall by combining a fabulously ruffled coral top with a pair of classic skinnies, snakeskin wedges, and a handmade lariat necklace from Beauty In Stone.

Now, without further ado, take a look at the photos + outfit details below!

Fall is my favorite season. Maybe that is a little cliche for me to say as a fashion stylist; however, it’s true! All the best fashions come out during fall fashion week, I get to wear as much dark lipstick as I want, AND most importantly…I get to challenge myself in stretching out my summer wardrobe *wink* 

So, for this week’s Three Ways to Wear Thursday, I am going to show y’all 3 fabulous ways to transcend your favorite summer sundress into your fall wardrobe. Great thing about this TWTWT is that you probably have everything you need to do this in your closet! Just break out the plaid, the kimonos, and the leather boots and you’ll be ready to go *happy dance*

Now, without further ado, let’s take a look at the outfits + details as we sip on our pumpkin-spice coffee beverages *wink*
