Mani Monday’s Gone Fishing

Mani Monday Has Gone Fishing

Mani Monday Has Gone Fishing

Random Fact for the day:  “Gone fishing” is a phrase commonly used when someone is completely unaware of his or her surroundings, checked out from reality, someone who has taken the opportunity to get away from the rigors of the day to day.  Commonly placed in shop windows to indicate that they weren’t around to do business.  This Monday, I definitely feel this way.  So my Koi fish mani is totally fitting.

Jamberry Koi Legend

Jamberry Koi Legend

This is another Jamberry wrap from my style box subscription.  The style box offerings are limited edition but there are plenty willing to trade half and full sheets (including myself).  I decided to pull this guy out because I had a baby boy shower to go to and I wanted something blue and boyish.  Luckily to my surprise, her theme for the party was fishing 🙂

Adorable Koi Fish Design

Adorable Koi Fish Design

The fun koi fish design not only was fitting for the event, it’s also super cute!  Plus, my in-laws have a pretty legit koi pond, complete with a little bridge my dog Zoey gets freaked out crossing.  She stops, looks at the fish, makes sure they aren’t going to get her, then crosses.  Its the funniest thing.

What To Wear In Late Summer

What To Wear In Late Summer

What To Wear In Late Summer

As much as I’ll “never let go” of summer, late summer is kinda nice.  The transitioning weather allows for a refresh on the looks.  Can work in new fall trends, colors and staples, all while still embracing the last bits of summer.

What I'm wearing for late summer.

What I’m wearing for late summer.

Fall Trend:  Bell Sleeves.  Late Summer Wear Now: Cropped Sleeve in Light Flowy Fabric.

Bell Sleeves For Wear Now Wear Later

Bell Sleeves For Wear Now Wear Later

Statement sleeves are not only a hot summer trend but a cool fall one as well.  So what’s better than a blouse that works for both!?  This Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse from Avon has a cropped sleeve making it perfect for transitioning weather and looks.  Choosing a fall trend in a lightweight fabric flowy fabric allows you more wear year round out of it.  Plus, the peep of lace at the top lightens it up too.

Avon Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse

Fall Trend:  Out Of The Ordinary Baubles.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Gold Chain Details.

Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace

Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace and mark. Gleam With Pride Ring

A big trend in fall jewelry is out of the ordinary necklaces.  Your standard run of the mill statement necklace is not going to cut it, you need something legit.  “How ’bout some gold bracelets” or gold necklace if you will… thick gold chains and a unique pendant drop allow this necklace to stand out from the crowd.  Additionally, the bright gold is a perfect late summer metal, but this would look equally as chic worn with a simple black turtleneck or your favorite plaid top come fall.  The Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace is part of the Breast Cancer Shop For The Greater Goods Shop at my eBoutique.  What makes it even more unique than it’s look, is that 20% of the proceeds go to support the Breast Cancer Crusade, which is in style year round!

Embrace Big Gold Chains

Embrace Big Gold Chains

Fall Color:  Jewel Tones.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Amethyst Blouse.

Avon Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse

Avon Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse

By wearing brighter jewel tone now, like amethyst, vs a deep tone, like plum, allows you to keep your look more late summer.  I love this Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse from Avon for the perfect wear now jewel toned shade.

Jewel Tones Now and Later

Jewel Tones Now and Later

Fall Staple:  Jeans.  Late Summer Wear Now:  White Jeans.

White Deconstructed Jeans for Late Summer

White Deconstructed Jeans for Late Summer

It was a brisk mid 80’s so I was able to wear pants… like the first time since May.  These destructed white jeans from mark. are finally seeing some wear!  White jeans are the perfect way to create a late summer look, they brighten up those fall trends and colors.  Come later in the season, pair this exact look with your dark denim and boots for a true fall look.

Fall Staple:  Suede.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Pops Of Suede.

Avon Leather and Suede Whipstitch Tote

Avon Leather and Suede Whipstitch Tote

Pop in some suede during late summer.  I’m wearing a suede fringed sandal from Steve Madden, and switched to my fall bag, a leather tote with suede pieced in.  The sandals are from last year but the tote is the new Avon Leather and Suede Whipstitch Tote.

Pops Of Suede For Late Summer

This is just one of those easy outfits for a lot of different occasions.  You can tweak it depending on what you got going on and as that true fall weather creeps in, but overall the perfect take on late summer.  You can shop my entire look at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger.  Be sure to take advantage of the newest A Box for only $10 with a $40 purchase!  And yes, I probably should of ironed my shirt instead of just pulling it out of my suitcase after a week.  Life, man, life.

You would never guess summer is coming to an end with these over 100 temps!  To combat the late summer heat I need a nice easy summer dress and this mark. Style Safari dress is perfect.  It features a fit and flare style thats not only flattering but keeps you cooler.  The blue, white, black and grey safari paisley print is super fun and fitting for late August.  The contrasting design at the waist defines while the piping gives a flattering illusion.

This safari style outfit definitely is perfect for late summer but I can see it transitioning into fall really well.  I would pair it with some black booties and a cute denim jacket!  Or even with a cardi and pumps for work, either way definitely a versatile dress!  Wear now and wear later style if you will.

Summer + Pants DO NOT go together in my book. However, I will make and exception for these mark. By Avon Call Of The Wild Palazzo Pants.  Here is why they are my ultimate summer pant:

mark. Call Of The Wild Plazzo Pant

These mark. Call Of The Wild Plazzo Pants are your typical lightweight plazzo pant, but features a statement making slit up the legs.  This slit not only makes them eye catching, but keeps them comfortable to wear in warmer temps.

Statement making slits!

mark. Hot Terrain Heels

mark. Total Perfection Bag

Recall that urban safari inspo?  Well these pants is how I’m wearing the trend.  The paisley design in jewel tones still creates a summer vibe while they’ll be just as fitting come fall.  To keep with the summer vibe, I paired them with an easy black cami,  some fun strappy sandals, the mark. Hot Terrain Heels, and my white-hot bag, the mark. Total Perfection Bag.

For those finishing touches I’m wearing the mark.
