A little bit of a matchy-matchy outfit here. For a more laid-back version of this, one would go with perhaps some nude or white pumps or wedges. But as I was going through my shoes, looking for which ones will work best, I saw these cut-out cobalt blue heels from Deb Shops, which I have worn in another outfit a few weeks back in the summer. I thought the details of it work perfectly with the details of the mint top from So Perla. Did you notice it? Unfortunately, the heels are sold out because these were from awhile back. But the good news is that the top with the extra special basket weave details is still available and it also comes in coral, black, and ivory. The top is great even with just a pair of denims for a really casual yet chic look.

If you're crazy about midi skirts and stripes, the skirt is also still available, also from So Perla. What's great about these pieces is that you can mix and match them with some of your existing items in your closet and style them to fit the season. Altogether though, they sure are statement-makers and head-turners. It was quite obvious when we were shooting this outfit. *Wink*

Last week, I started a weekly series for the month of September, featuring some Fall looks from Deb Shops. If you missed the first look, visit Deb Shops Fall Look 1: Boho Chic to check it out and today's look is the second part.

The camo/military/army trend has been huge in the past couple of fall seasons. For as long as I'm blogging, I see this trend come back every time and every fashionista's excitement over this never seem to falter. You can see them in anorak jacket like the one I'm wearing here, in vest, coat, tunic, and pants. It's pretty amusing how a masculine and edgy piece like this can be so feminine at the same time, and for some reason, it works perfectly with stripes. I have seen it matched with a navy and white stripes as well as the ever so basic black and white stripes. I'm sure you have seen the combo somewhere too.

With a couple of accessories from Charlotte Russe and Rue21, the rest of the items from head to toe are very much still available at Deb Shops. I'm sure that this anorak jacket won't last long so be sure to grab one for yourself. It is a good quality and can warm you very nicely during the upcoming colder season.

By the way, the suede booties here are super comfortable too! One of my favorite booties these days!

As we are approaching fall officially, I am getting sad a little bit because I know that my bright floral dresses will have to either sit in my closet until next summer or be sold in my Instagram account (Ha!! Follow "heyitslynnegcloset" because I am planning on putting more of my clothes for sale pretty soon.) I am definitely savoring the remaining 7 days of summer.

This dress with side cut-outs from Divergence Clothing is on sale for less than $30. I like the puffiness of the bottom part, I wish it's longer though because it's definitely shorter than most of my dresses in similar style. It's definitely more on the flirty side, not only because of the short length but because of the low neckline. To cover up a little bit, the best option is to wear a bib necklace. If you're thinking of adding bright colors in your fall wardrobe, you can use this dress as a top. Wear a pair of leggings and a leather jacket over it and a solid scarf and voila!

Did you happen to notice the bangle with green stones? It's a lovely piece from Margaret Elizabeth Jewelry. Their bangles are definitely worth checking out and who knows, you might just end up getting one for you or your mom or sis. After all, Christmas is fast approaching, you might as well do some early shopping!

Ahhhhhh!!! It seems that the fall weather is starting to kick in. At least here in Houston. It was in the low 70's over this past weekend and it's pretty refreshing to have a cooler weather. Although when we shot this outfit, it was windy and humid so the shorts outfit was pretty appropriate. How's it like where you're located?

Anyway, a really cool, comfy outfit for fall. Sometimes, you don't necessarily have to layer-up, especially when it's just "cool" and not cold. This top from Pink Blush Boutique is really comfy. I like this type of blouses even though sometimes they can make you look bigger than you really are. It's not always about showing off your curves or your size anyways, it's about style and comfort. This specific top is sold out but Pink Blush has a lot of similar styles in solid colors and printed ones. I have provided a link on the Outfit Recap for about five of them for easy access. The black and white ethnic print shorts is still available and on sale!

Can I just say that I really feel girly and chic in this outfit? I guess it must be the flow of the top and the lace details on the sleeves. This outfit is great for 70s weather, definitely.

H&M at Katy Mills Opening Event Recap

 

Ahhhh, this is a long overdue post! But here it is anyways…

About almost a month ago, I had the privilege of working with one of my favorite brands, H&M! I mean, who doesn't love H&M? Their styles are always on point and of course, the prices too! I remember when they opened their first store here in Houston, Houstonians went a little crazy shopping…including, ahem, yours truly. I'm even more excited that they will be opening another store at the Houston Galleria and I will be hosting it once again! Win!

H&M at Katy Mills Shopping Outlet opened last August 14 and that is so far, I believe, their 3rd store. I'm sure that lots of Katy residents were thrilled! At the opening event, by 10ish AM I think, there were already over 200 people standing in line outside the store. You know how grand H&M opening events are. They give out Access to Fashion passes worth $10 to $200 I believe to the first 100 people. Thus, the long line. I heard that there were people who camped out at 3:30 AM! Talk about brand loyalty or dying hard to get an Access to Fashion pass? Either way, I hope those people got some good stuff.

The staff did a few song and dance before cutting of the ribbon. It was so much fun seeing them! What I loved about it was that there were staff from other H&M stores out of state that came to support. How cool is that?

DSC03260

If you're following me on Instagram or Twitter, you might have seen the crazy deals I have posted during the opening event. There were dresses at $7 and $10! Unfortunately, I was too busy covering the event to do some shopping and by the time, I was free, the store was already packed!

Some of the lovely H&M sales associates at this branch. They are fresh, young, and very friendly!

Before the store opened, I did a little contest outside and these 5 youngsters won! They won a FREE head-to-toe outfit from H&M in addition to the goodie bag and Access to Fashion pass. I was wearing an H&M top, skirt, and accessories here. I was supposed to style consult them but they got it! I saw what they all picked and it was on point!

DSC03257

And of course, I just had to snap some of the styles available at the store. Black and white never goes out of season at all. It's the in-thing all year round.

Jewel tones, leopard prints, and other fall items came early in August at this H&M branch when they opened.

Bright Coral Serpentina

 

Trumpet Dress

Have you guys heard of the term or name "Serpentina" before? I guess the root word of it is serpent. I actually first heard it from my mom when she was telling me a particular bridal gown style. You know the dress that fits all the way to about below your knee and then flares right there? Well this dress from Quiz Clothing kinda reminds me of it. Although, Quiz Clothing's website actually describes it as a "skater dress", which I don't believe it is. Another name I read about this type of dresses is "trumpet" dress and I could see why it is likened to a trumpet.

This dress came with a gold belt and the coral shade is actually brighter in person. It's very flattering if you have the curves but not if you don't. I hope it makes sense. I feel that the dress really hugs your curves, I wasn't sure how it will look on me but I hope it came out okay.

Thought that black and gold jewelries will work best to pop-off this outfit. The dress itself is so bright but the black kinda off sets that a little bit which is a good thing. How do you like the bow necklace and bracelet? I have shown them to you before on Instagram and they are from Pretty in Pynk. I was so glad I was able to find a matching bow bracelet and necklace, but they aren't really a set.

Hope you like this week's round of outfits and see you next week for another round!

Today's outfit is screamin' summer, doesn't it? Let me tell you why…at the risk of sounding a weather woman again. It's because it really doesn't feel like Houston is transitioning to fall at all. With the exception of it's getting dark earlier these days (and I think I've already mentioned it).

I knew that Houston typically gets longer summer weather even after it becomes officially fall so I had no problem getting a floral set like this from Cici Hot. Unfortunately, this particular 2-piece set is already sold out. However, I promise you they have more awesome 2-piece sets available that I suggest checking out! I wish though I had seen it earlier in the summer so I can enjoy it more. But no fret, I will have it till next summer. Boom. If you're a girly-girl like me and you like fun, flirty, and floral styles, I think you will love the other sets that Cici Hot has. The direct link is above on the Outfit Recap. You can use code WDD35 to receive 35% OFF until today only.

I am thinking this outfit is yet another special occasion but with the material of the dress, you can definitely dress it down even with just a pair of gladiator or thong sandals, do a messy bun, and head to the boardwalk with your beau! Aww, there, I even painted a complete romantic picture for you in that outfit. *Wink*

Ahhhh it's Wednesday! Happy Hump Day to you my lovelies! Even though I am wearing some pink on today's outfit, I decided not to call it or make it the beginning of another "On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink!" Although I think subconsciouly, I wanted to do that because obviously, I had scheduled this outfit on a Wednesday.

Anyway, how neat is this Little Black Tank from Bleue Boutique? BUT unfortunately, it's sold out. Hopefully, they will re-stock in the near future. You might like this "Small Town Girl" tank though, check it out! The cute white and pink skirt is also sold out. However, I think you will LOVE this bicycle skirt, it's so adorable! You can create the same look I have below with different pieces. Just throw in a black or brown or even burgundy leather jacket.

Because the jacket makes the whole look heavy, opting for simple jewelries is the way to go. Honestly, I am enjoying dainty necklaces lately. Thanks to Ashley Lane and Company for this new pink and gold one I got!

Tube-Top Dress

1. Sweettart Clothing Dress | 2. Handbag Heaven Envelope Clutch | 3. Deb Shops Pumps (Sold out, click here for similar) | 4. Shamelessly Sparkly Earrings | 5. Shamelessly Sparkly Necklace,  | 6. Sunburst Jewels Bangles (Galactica, La Luna, Brown Ohana) (All /co)

This dress from Sweettart Clothing does make you feel like a million bucks when you wear it…although technically, it's only $35! (On sale from $50!) And on top of that, you can use discount code "lynnereader" to receive 20% OFF your total order!

It's definitely a special occasion dress. The material and the print make it that way but sometimes the things that you don't see are important too. For example, tube tops or tube dresses should come with bust pads. I don't particularly would like to worry about what type of bra to wear so the bust pads in this dress save the day for me and I'm sure for those of you who are particular about that too.

If you have a special occasion to go to anytime soon, I suggest checking out this dress. It just goes very well with the statement necklace from Shamelessly Sparkly. The earrings were from them too and they are not a set but they are perfect with the necklace.I hope you also noticed my wired bangles from Sunburst Jewels! The bangles are sold separately but I especially put together this stack and am happy at the outcome! I love the neutral/earth-tone feel to it. Wired/Stone bangles are really huge these days but what I love abou Sunburst is that they have different sizes to fit your wrist. I received some before that are just too big for me and won't stay in my wrist.

Did you like this look?

In the next few weeks, for the month of September, I will be creating a weekly series featuring fall looks in Deb Shops items. Today's look is all about boho. Now my style isn't usually boho but I really don't mind that comfortable hippie look at all! I know many of you agree that boho look is both stylish and comfortable and anybody can pretty much pull it off. The key is adding your own flavor to the boho look. For example, boho normally doesn't use big bold statement jewelries. It's usually styled with dainty or tribal jewels. To make this look my own, I used bold jewelries like I normally would my other look. See?

With a couple of pieces from other vendors, most of what I used in this look were from Deb Shops. The paisley print dress is yet another cami/slip dress – the print and the colors are just about right for fall! I think I've already said before, but adding a denim jacket makes for a fall look very easily. So always have a couple of jean jackets in your closet – a dark wash and a light wash. This one from Deb's has a nice crochet detailing and the best part is it's still available.

Hope you like today's look my lovelies!
