One of the trends making repeat appearances all over town is Oxblood (or Burgundy if we're being honest.) I bought my newest Rebecca Minkoff bag during the Nordstrom anniversary sale and now that's it's finally almost fall it's time for her to make her grand debut. Oxblood is one of those colors that's bold enough to make a statement but somehow manages to go with everything which makes it neutral as well. Win-Win.

Typical St. Louis summers involve 100 degree temps throughout July and August and by September we're averaging high 80's. This summer, however, has been different. Much of July and August we were in the 80's and 90's and now that we've hit September we're launching into the high 90's. Whew! In an effort to tiptoe into fall (since it's almost official) I paired a breezy polka dot tank with my new army inspired skinnies. With all the great new trends I'm kinda looking forward to fall (kinda.)
