Guest BloggerFall Trends with Kimberly of Penny Pincher Fashion-Part 2!

Untitled-5

On Monday, we had frugal fashionista, Kimberly from Penny Pincher Fashion show us how to rock one of her favorite fall trends: camo! Today we have the second installment of her trend series and she is going to show us how to wear something we have seen all over the runway for fall 2013: leather details!

Ladylike leather1

Hi everyone! Kimberly from Penny Pincher Fashion here! For my second look with LuLu*s, I chose to focus on leather.  In my opinion, everyone should have a little leather jacket for the season – it adds just the right amount of edge to classic pieces & instantly makes any outfit cooler.

Leather blazer2

Leather jacket3

I love this vegan style because it’s an affordable option & it doesn’t have the overtly tough feel of a moto jacket.  Plus, it’s slightly easier to dress up since it fits more like a blazer.

Tweed & leather4

This would be perfect for those of you who live in warmer climates because it’s a thinner material, which gives you a versatile layer without adding bulk.  I would also pair this with a button-down silk blouse, a flowy printed mini & ankle boots for a more dressed-up look.

What I’m wearing:

Ark & Co. Vegan Leather Blazer c/o LuLu*s, top (try this!), jeans (similar), pumps (similar), bag (similar), earrings (similar), c/o T+J Designs cuff (similar), Lips (similar)

Hi! I’m Kimberly from Penny Pincher Fashion!  This week, I am so excited to get to share 3 different looks I’ve created with pieces from LuLu*s.  We are collaborating to show you how to wear some of the biggest trends for fall.  Today’s post is the first in the series and I decided to focus on camouflage.  

Camo & leather1

This sweatshirt is honestly the softest thing I have ever put on! It is so comfortable & perfect to wear with jeans & sneakers on the weekend, but also pairs nicely with sleek tailored pieces like a pencil skirt (extra points if it’s lace or leather).

Camo + sparkle1

Dressed up camo1

Camo is sometimes a tricky print to style, especially for those who gravitate towards more feminine silhouettes – so if you’re not quite sure, try balancing it with something girly (like a flippy black mini) or pair with classic pieces (like a white button-down layered underneath + cropped black trousers).

Ladylike camo1

 What I’m wearing:

O’Neill Blakely Camo Sweatshirt c/o LuLu’s, pencil skirt (similar), black heels (similar; also love this studded option)

Last month, we were lucky to be a sponsor of the 4th Annual Texas Style Council! This rad weekend, which takes place in Austin, is a conference for female bloggers, women-centric business owners, and women everywhere, with small, intimate workshops that taught classes in a summer school style! As always, it was amazing, and we were happy to be a part of it!

The first thing we did when we got in town was set up a clothing swap in the beautiful 2nd Street District, in downtown Austin. The weather was HOT but the killer selection and style of clothing the attendees dropped off to swap was even HOTTER! Have you ever been to a clothing swap? It is a ton of fun! You basically bring great condition, still trendy items to swap with other attendees. We decided to bring over 200 pieces of new LuLu*s swag including dresses, shoes, jewelry, and more! We planted these pieces in with the rad vintage and used items for a truly interesting selection. This added fuel to the fire and as the room got more and more packed full of swappers hunting for the best finds, we knew the party had begun! With spicy-cool cocktails to sip on, we all had a blast listening to great music, swapping cool vintage and new items, and networking the night away!
