This is a great time to shop for fall shoes. Saks.com is already having their 70% off sale on suede shoes that you can wear all fall season. One pair I am loving right now is the Aquazzura suede black shoes for 70% off.
The original price on these shoes were $695. Get them now for $278. That is really a steal. I would get both colors if you need them in a light cognac brown suede and a black suede. I love the feminine front tie detail and the platform block heel. You won’t be worried about standing around for hours in these shoes. They have a 4.5 inch platform heel and are made in Italy. What could be better?
In case you did not get your platform sandals for your summer and pre fall wardrobe yet, buy these gorgeous Prada platform sandals now for 70% off. The original price on these sandals were $820 and they are now $328. I actually cannot believe the price and am thinking I need to buy them for myself if they still have them in my size.
These sandals are about 5 inches in height, but have a 1 inch platform so they feel like they are 3 1/2 inch heels. You will be standing tall at all your events this fall since they are suede. Go retro and get the cognac color or get them in the pretty grey to go with all your neutrals. No matter what you choose, they are a great quality pair of sandals you can wear this season into next.

When it is hot outside like it was in Los Angeles today, the best thing to wear is a jumpsuit. My favorite is the Splendid jumpsuit that comes in a variety of colors. The easy light fabric and the pull on design keeps you cool and unfettered and looking pretty.
The off the shoulder ruffle design of the jumpsuit makes it easy to look dressed up when you want to wear the jumpsuit with heels or dressed down and pretty when wearing flat sandals.
The off the shoulder jumpsuit I am wearing is from Splendid and comes in a few different colors.
The Splendid black jumpsuit is available at Zappos.com
Summer travel can be fun and exhausting. It is hard to predict weather and what you should pack if you are going to more than one city in a big country. This summer we went from the South of France to Paris and we had to pack for 100 plus temperatures in the dry areas of Gordes, Arles, Lourmarin, and Lacoste, while also packing for the coastal areas like Saint Tropez and then for rainy cooler temperatures in Paris.
Since we did not want to bring too much clothing with us, we had to bring very versatile pieces that would work for a range of temperatures and climates. One of my favorite types of pieces to pack are jumpsuits. I am so grateful jumpsuits have come back into fashion because you don’t have to think too much about how a jumpsuit looks when paired with a pair of earrings or shoes. You can dress a jumpsuit up or down and you don’t have to think about whether the bottom matches the top or not.
I own several different types of jumpsuits because of their versatility. Some jumpsuits you can dress up like you would a dress and some you can wear with sneakers. The one in the photo above packs really easily and doesn’t wrinkle so I wore in several different temperatures in France without any issues. I also dressed up the all black number with a bright pom pom necklace to keep it looking interesting.
We took the most magical bike tour through the Palace of Versaille grounds when we were in France. We met our tour guide in Paris at the train station and took a 1 hour train ride to Versailles. From there we picked up a picnic at the local Farmer’s Market and rode our bikes through the Palace grounds.
When I was in Paris, I brought along my favorite Ulla Johnson pieces to wear on my trip. They were versatile and perfect for the 75 degree weather in the city. I always looked well dress weather I was going to the Louvre or to a cafe for lunch or out to dinner. Ulla Johnson never disappointed. One of my favorite Ulla Johnson dresses is now on sale. The original price was $437 and it is now on sale for $305.90 at 30% off. Get the Ulla Johnson dress now before it is gone.
My favorite Valentino Star Studded Pumps are now on sale for $558 from the original price of $1,395. That is about 60% off. If you have been thinking about these shoes, think no longer, they can now be yours.
I love all the floral straps and floral bags that are out this season. When I was in New York City in April, the Coach store on 5th Avenue had the coolest display of the Coach floral bags. One of the bags that caught my eye was this floral saddle bag. I have always been a fan of the saddle bag and this one with the perfect length crossbody strap in the cream color is perfect for summer into early fall. The bag is now on sale for $385 from $550. Now is the time to get it and wear it all summer long. Get the Coach bag at Saks.com now during there big sale.
Every time Nordstrom has their Anniversary sale, I always look to see if there is anything I need for fall because they put the items on sale that will go back to regular price after the sale for the fall season. This sale is when you buy the investment pieces you normally would not buy until they go on sale. So why wait until the season is over when you can get everything on sale now before the season even starts right?

In Arles, France we hit a heatwave and were luckily prepared with many cute off the shoulder jumpsuits like this one. We needed a cute outfit we would be comfortable in while touring for at least 6 hours a day and this Splendid black jumpsuit did the trick. The material is 95% rayon and 5% lycra and kept my daughter cool throughout the day. We walked through the town of Arles from the Coliseum to the Amphitheater to lunch at the Nord Pinus Hotel pop up restaurant and she kept cool throughout the day.
