How to Style Chokers for Fall

Chokers were one of my favorite trends for the summer- they look great with a slip dress and ankle boots, or with vintage cutoffs and a plain white tee. Now that fall is approaching, I'm starting to move away from most of my warm weather trend pieces, but I think my chokers will stay! A simple choker can transition very well from summer to fall as long as you style it properly.. here are some of my favorite street style stars wearing chokers in a fall-friendly way! 
Even though they've been here for a couple seasons now, I still consider chokers to be a trend piece. I wouldn't spend over $50 on one, even though there are tons of stores out there selling the regular velvet ones for upwards of $300! Thankfully small shops on Etsy have taken the choker trends from off the racks and recreated them at much more affordable prices. Here are some of my favorite affordable chokers for fall, as well as some ways to style them! Enjoy! xx Flo

Fall Shoe Lust // EGO Official

I have been a huge fan of public desire for about a year (i think i own around 8 pairs at this point), their prices and quality are hard to beat and they’re always on top of trends!
Ego is a lot like PD, they have inspired by designer shoes (yeezy, acne, stuart weitzman, dior, ysl inspired etc) at good prices (most shoes are around $30-60). I haven’t ordered any yet, but the photos are gorg and the reviews look overall positive!
Here are my top favorites for fall (i’ve included the links to the designers they’re duped from so you can compare! haha)
  1. Ariana Strappy Sandal In Clear Perspex (dupe for Yeezy Lucite heel)
  2. Pia Lace Up Ankle Boots In Nude Lycra (dupe for Dior ankle boots)
  3. Vesenya Velvet Heels (dupe for Gianvito Rossi Portofino velvet sandals)
  4. Olivia Over The Knee Boots In Grey Faux Suede (dupe for Gianvito Rossi Rolling suede over-the-knee boots)
  5. Hannah Ankle Clear Heeled Boot (dupe for Acne Studios Ora Palm boots)
  6. Eva Thigh High Boots In Black Faux Suede (dupe for Stuart Weitzman Highlands)
  7. Zina High Ankle Heeled Boots In Black Faux Suede (dupe for Yeezy ankle boots)
  8. Jinnie Front Lace Up Ankle Boots In Nude Faux Suede (dupe for YSL Babies 90 suede ankle boots)
  9. Zina High Ankle Heeled Boots In Nude Lycra (dupe for Yeezy ankle boots)

Fall Style Board

This summer has gone by so quickly, it still feels like June to me. I've had so much fun over the past few months working for Silkstaq and enjoying my off-time with friends. Sadly, school will be starting back up for me soon, and my life will mostly consist of writing papers and eating microwavable foods. On the bright side, fall is my favorite season for fashion- so I thought a good way to relieve my school stress would be to put together a little fall style inspiration post! Here are a few photos from the past few months that have hinted at my outfit ideas for the upcoming months, along with some polyvore sets! 

Also, I always get questions on my tumblr about the biggest trends for the season / which pieces I am most excited about, so here is compliation of my top picks! Enjoy xx (much more coming soon)

Summer Makeup // Bare Minerals & NYX

A few months back I had the pleasure of working with Simon malls to try out some of the products sold at their Wrentham Outlets location. Some of those products included these Bare Minerals blushes, foundation samples, and lip glosses. If you know me, you know I'm not one to splurge on lots of makeup (or really anything outside the realm of clothes), so I rarely know what's going on in the beauty world. 

I'm happy to say that the Bare Minerals products definitely surprised me- the foundation fits my skin tone perfectly, and the blush is pretty and subtle. As for lip gloss- I've never been a huge fan, but Kylie is bringing it back so why not?

Along with my Bare Minerals items, I've been going back to my NYX BB cream and concealer for daily touch ups. The last thing I want to do during a heat wave is wear layers of makeup, so a light BB cream is a good middle ground between foundation and a bare face.
