Fall is finally here and October has begun. Feels very different when you’re living somewhere tropical and the temperature doesn’t drop the way you’d like it to! Still getting used to this whole island living but slowly, it’s feeling more and more like home. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to make our space as Fall as I can! Switching out fruity/summer-y candles for deep scents that remind me of Winter and a crackling fire. Thinking of doing a round-up of my favorite Fall candles to help everyone get in the mood! Until then, enjoy this October Mood Board

RUNWAY: Chanel Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear

I’m trying to get back into the rhythm of blogging so I apologize for the lack of posts lately! Figured the best way to start again is by posting things that inspire me, which is a huge part of why I started this blog years ago!

I wanted to post some of my favorite looks for the recent Chanel Spring 2019 Runway Show. With 80+ looks, it was very hard to edit it down to these few below…

I loved the whole concept of the show on the beach which actual water and sand. Karl sure knows how to put on an amazing production for his shows! As always, the details in the Chanel collections are truly exquisite. I love the paired down looks with leggings and biker shorts yet they still look very put-together. The oversized tweed jackets are classic Chanel with an updated modern look. Great accessories with more clear bags and lucite shoes, which I’m happy are still ‘on trend’. My favorite part was definitely the double bags. I love the layering of a larger and smaller bag and how Lagerfeld connected some in the middle with the classic Chanel chain straps. So so good! Le sigh, one day I’ll own a Chanel piece….preferably from this collection!

STYLE: A Case for the Bike Shorts

Don't roll your eyes just yet! I know, I know...the dreaded bike short trend. I get your initial reaction, it's a bit of a confused stare into your screen, right? I completely understand. However, I want to show you just how cool this look can be when worn in a none work-out way or with a tiny crop top. 

 

Here we have Fashion Editor Christine Centenera wearing them with a chic oversized blazer and a pair of amazing Céline shoes. The bike shorts aren't short, hitting right above the knee but the key here is how long this blazer is. Almost like a dress covering all the areas you'd like to have covered for a more formal/cool look. The heels are the perfect touch as well - keeping it modern and streamlined.

Here we have Kendall Jenner with her mile long legs wearing bike shorts in a casual/airport chic way. I love the large oversized black hoodie and knee high cowboy boots. I think it's such a good look and again, covering up the bum with the long hoodie so that it doesn't feel like a work-out look. So far, I think going with all black pieces seems to work best. 

 

Another amazing look from Fashion Editor Christine Centenera. She clearly knows how to wear bike shorts correctly. This time doing an oversized blazer with a belted waist to give definition to the body. I love the chunky sandals and that the look is mostly black with a tad bit of color. It's cool.

If you're not sold on the look yet...

remember Princess Diana herself wore this trend years ago and looked incredible. Oversized Harvard hoodie and sneakers, it's ICONIC. I'm here for it.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Any thoughts on the Bike Short trend? Are you less confused now or more? At least if you want to try the looks out bike shorts can be found at super affordable prices. I don't love spending a ton of money on trends so if I can try a trend without breaking the bank - why not!?
