PEARLS & PLEATS

Emily of lifestyle blog Epicurean Emily shares her favorite affordable Autumn/Winter 2017 Trends, wearing a Zara black lace blouse, a J.Crew faux-leather black pleated skirt, Topshop Gold Glitter Mary-Janes, BaubleBar Pearl Hoop Earrings, and a Target Black Quilted Cross-body Bag.

Summer came and went (faster than ever, I might add) and it seems that September creeped up on us once again. While I love Summer for its warm temps and mood-boosting sunshine, I do have a soft spot for Autumn- especially when the September issues start hitting the shelves, revealing all the best trends of the season. Fall is when I have the most fun with dressing, as once winter hits, I’m just grabbing whatever pieces are warmest and in summer, I’m ditching all unnecessary layers. There is something indescribably wonderful about that crisp Autumn air and for me, it opens up a world of outfit possibilities. The AW17 runways exuded luxury, thanks to fabrics such as velvet and fur, pearlized finishes and embellishments, and dramatic pleats. Pearls have always been my accessory of choice (given the innate Francophile in me), so this is definitely the “trend” I’m most excited about this season! These BaubleBar earrings were the perfect statement jewelry piece to begin building my collection since I can wear them with many different outfits. Shop my look and all of my favorite affordable Autumn/Winter 2017 trends below!

      Aw thank you, Brandi! I mainly do strength training right now, but I don’t have a routine. I just try to make it to the gym at least 3 times a week and I have several exercises that I rotate between. Yes- you know a hairstyle is easy when I can do it! ? But you don’t need help in the hair-styling department!
