Trending Tuesday: September Inspo

September Inspo

September Inspo

If the world of Alicia was the internet inspo for September would totally be trending! ¬†September for me is always a love/hate relationship. ¬†I LOVE August, summer, hot temps and long days. ¬†September is the start to the end of all of that… but also the start of more things I love, Penn State football, all football,¬†apple hill (for my nor cal’ers) and all the fun events in September. ¬†Luckily it’s still summer hot here and we technically have a few weeks left of summer so here’s what’s inspiring me for September!

Color Pallet

September Inspo Colors

September Inspo Colors

This month I’m really feeling all shades of blues, especially navy, camels and nudes, red and burgundy with a bit of neutral blush tones and light greys. ¬†Think very collegiate shades.

Just as inspiring as a color pallet I always have a print I gravitate toward. ¬†September it’s always plaid and menswear fabric inspired prints.

September Beauty

Lauren Conrad's Makeup for September

Lauren Conrad’s Makeup for September

I saw this pic of Lauren for her September LC Lauren Conrad Collection ad and I immediately was smitten.  This is what September beauty is about, flawless skin, a light and bright eye with a classic wing liner, full lashes and a bright but deep berry lip.  I already use her staple eyeliner, mark. On The Edge Liquid Liner and I think I can find a similar lip shade!

Apple Everything

Apple Crisp

If pumpkin everything is the motto for October then apple everything is the inspo for September! ¬†I’ll be sure to make my favorite apple crisp, take a visit to Apple Hill and light a few of my favorite apple scented candles this month. ¬†I totally like apple flavors way more than pumpkin!

Trending Tuesday #marble with mark. Soft T Dress

Last week’s Trending Tuesday was all my #marble inspo, today it’s how I applied it in my life with the mark. Soft T Dress! ¬†Middle of summer means it’s hot and all the new fashion is coming out for pre-fall. ¬†Which means you need something that can beat the heat and look on trend as we transition ¬†in a few months. ¬†A t-shirt dress is that item! ¬†Put a marble print on it and you got something unique and on trend.

For summer wear I like this look pretty minimal, which makes it work appropriate. ¬†I like it all kept in a monochromatic color scheme, black white and bit of metallic. ¬†All I added was a metallic skinny belt for some shape (too bad I didn’t have one in black, white or silver! ¬†Adding that to the wish list…)

Anchored in black, a structured bag and cap toe pumps also make this dress work appropriate for a summer day.  However, you could easily make it weekend ready with black sandals and lighter bag!

Wear Now, Wear Later: Printed T-Shirt Dress

This is your no-fuss, hassle free, easy summer wear piece! I love how versatile it is and I can’t wait to wear it in the fall (stay tuned for a fall friendly take on this dress). ¬†For now I’ll just wear with some sharp silver jewelry, clean white mani and a petal pink lip with Avon Ultra Color Indulgence Lipstick in Petal Pink.

Word Of Alicia Review of the mark. Soft T Dress: I’m totally digging the print, obviously! ¬†But what’s also great about this dress is it’s a relaxed fit and a little longer in length so more versatile for more occasions. Originally I was disappointed this wasn’t a cotton t-shirt dress, it’s polyester so it will retain it’s shape as you wear it and therefore a little thicker so no show through, which I like. ¬† I also dig the pattern all the way around the dress. The marble print is really what makes this dress unique!
