September on INSTAGRAM

I can't believe how quickly September flew by! Between music festivals, and of course, all the fashion weeks, it's certainly been a whirlwind. Oh, and somewhere in there, we also said hasta luego to Summer and bienvenido to Fall. 

Here are some of my favorites from this month on Instagram. Make sure to follow me @dejafashion to see more!

Which one is your favorite?

Sayonara Summa

Well loveys, it's officially the last day of Summer. Tomorrow, September 22nd, marks the first official day of Fall. 
This is one of my favorite dresses to wear during the Summer. I got it a couple of years back during London Fashion Week, at desigual. It's soft and comfortable, perfect for hot Summer days or nights. The vibrant colors look great when I'm tanned, and really pop when paired with colorful shoes and accessories. I'm definitely going to miss the kaleidoscope of colors that was Summer 2012. 
What are you going to miss the most?

OOTD: Charlotte International Fashion Week

The weather in the South can be quite temperamental, and EXTREME. We get anything from tornados to hurricanes, to week-long-poweroutages due to snow, and of course, a heat index of 125 degrees!

So when it comes to planning an outfit for an event, it can be pretty nerve wracking; both in terms of being weather-appropriate and season-appropriate. 
This weekend I headed to the Queen City (Charlotte, NC) for Charlotte International Fashion Week at the Blake Hotel. Going back to my dilemma: it's Fall, yes, but it's still warm out. How to combine Summer trend elements with Fall trends so that I don't look like I'm stuck in a season-warp?

I opted for this flirty and floral dress, which happens to be a nude color, similar to one of PANTONE's colors for Fall 2012; rose smoke. 
I paired it with a studded dark denim shirt, tied at the waist to give it an 80s edge.
As someone who swears by the importance of shoes and purses in terms of ANY outfit, I decided to set the look off with my suede Miu Miu sandals and MARC by Marc Jacobs, Dr. Q. Hillier handbag.

Fresh for Fall

And just like that, it's September. Bye bye summer, sun, sea, sand, surf, and bikinis. *le sigh* I've already told you my feelings about summer so I won't harp on it too much, and instead accept the reality that while September means Fashion Week (weeeeeeee!) it also means fall is officially upon is. 

I'm not quite ready to let go of the kaleidoscope of colors that made summer 2012 so vibrant. So, I decided to break out this fresh mint green trench coat, as I try to transition into my fall wardrobe. Baby steps. 

How do you think I did?
