A little something for now and later!

A little something for now and later!

Shop til ya drop. Did I mention shopping? And with a little break from Uncle Sam, why wouldn’t you head out to do a little damage. That’s right girls Tax Free shopping this weekend. So what if you’re not heading back to school. We all deserve a little break every now and then.

Fall is fast approaching…but it’s not here quite yet so I have developed some strategies to bring a little perk to your wardrobe NOW and LATER.

NOW- How about this cute jersey dress. Cool enough for the 90 degree days and flat sandals.
LATER- Pair this dress with a cute cardigan, throw on some tights and don’t forget a pair of cute little ankle boots.

NOW-This Marc Jacobs top looks great paired with a fresh khacki pleated skirt like this one by J. Crew. LATER- Combine this cute top with a suit and don’t forget a great Fall handbag like this one by Eitenne Aiger.

NOW- Knee-length shorts with a bit of shimmer like this J. Crew pair- topped with a fun light flirty top and gladiator sandals.
LATER- Pair the shorts with a classic jean jacket and slingbacks to get the chicest new Fall look.

NOW- Nothing is better than a good summer sun dress like this one by Theory. It’s perfect for those late summer cook outs.
LATER- Pair it with a turtle neck, layer it with a boyfriend sweater or a long cardigan and belt to accentuate your waist. Don’t forget a great pair of knee high boots. You’re set for a fall football game!

Lucky for us girls most of those old rules like no white after Labor Day are remnants of the past. There aren’t too many “don’ts” left on the list. Just think in terms of fabric and print when you are shopping for now and later. Obviously no linen, lilly-esque prints or light weight cotton.

Don’t forget….there are some great sales on summer styles. Of course you can shop for NOW and LATER…but keep an open mind and think about summer 2011 as well. Don’t forgo the great Lilly dress at the incredible sale price. Won’t it be fun to pull out a new wardrobe next spring with all the sale finds you bring home on tax free shopping weekend.

Make room for these new finds by beginning to pull out fall items for consignment. Labels will begin accepting fall consignments August 7.

Cheers Fashionistas!
