Washington Family Magazine : August 2014
washingtonFAMILY.com August 2014 67 Q: ASIDE FROM THE OUTLETS, WHAT ARE YOUR OTHER FAVORITE LOCAL PLACES TO SHOP? Zara in DC is my favorite! Most of my wardrobe is from there! But I also really like South Moon Under in the Mosaic District. They have a lot of “awe-worthy” shoes. Another one of my favorites is Current Boutique Modern Consignment. Q: WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR STYLE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MOMS ON THE GO? Everyone should have a chambray shirt (pictured above). I wear mine constantly — it’s comfortable and lightweight. It’s easy to throw on over anything and looks more stylish than your typical zip-up and yoga pants look. Q: WHAT TREND SHOULD BE PUT TO REST AS WE SAY GOODBYE TO SUMMER, AND WHAT TREND IS HERE TO STAY? Drop the shorts! It’s also time for the tropical patterns to go. And as much as I love my maxi dresses, they ’re only suitable in the summer. For the trend that’s here to stay, I’m a big fan of cutout dresses. They ’re simple, but have a “wow ” factor... so they ’re perfect for date nights out! Q: HOW DO YOU TRANSITION YOUR LOOK FROM SUMMER TO FALL? I basically focus on one summer item, and then I work my fall look around it. For example, I might keep an essential item like a fashion T-shirt, but instead of pairing it with shorts, I’ll pair it with pants. If I’m wearing a skirt or a dress, I’ll wear boots rather than summer sandals. Q: SPEAKING OF FASHION T-SHIRTS, WHERE DID YOU GET THE ONE FEATURED ABOVE? I got it from J. Crew at the Leesburg Outlets. It’s super comfortable and the black and white color scheme goes with everything. Not to mention, it was only $20! Q: WHAT A STEAL! HOW ABOUT THE BLACK SKIRT? I got that one from HauteLook.com for $35! It’s a fashionable basic bottom that works for both a day and night look. A black skirt like this can follow you through fall and into winter — just pair it with tights. wFm MOMS trendy Trendy Talk: Transitioning Summer Looks to Fall _________________________ Visit our Facebook page for additional resources! www.facebook.com/FAMILYMagazine DoyouwanttobeaTrendyTalkmom?ShowusyourlooksonInstagramusing#trendytalkFAMmagandbecomeinstaFAMous!
