Pretty Fix: The August List

Happy August pretties!  How’s the end of summer shaping up for you? We’re trying to milk out the last precious moments of summer while slowly transitioning into getting ready for back to school.

If you’re new around here, the Pretty Fix is a monthly feature with budget-friendly recommendations for staying on trend.  The idea for it was born out of frustration some of you have had with box styling services. The Pretty Fix allows you to shop for the pieces at your favorite stores so it’s budget and quality conscious. Of course, I always recommend that you shop your closet first!

This month’s Pretty Fix reflects what I have going on this month. We’re traveling to cooler weather destinations so I finally get to wear one of the outfits I can only dream of in Texas – a comfy sweatshirt with slouchy shorts and slip on sneakers!

It was love at first sight when I saw this graphic print STRIPED sweatshirt (you know all about me and my love affair with stripes). It screams “pair me up with nautical” so I added this rope trimmed tote (perfect for weekends), a pair of perforated Sperry slip on sneakers (in gold, of course) and my favorite pair of gold wire hoop earrings that are my daily go-to’s.

Pretty Fix – August 2017

1. Graphic Sweatshirt

Well, hello there comfy striped graphic print sweatshirt! This makes a great transition piece on chilly mornings.  Here are two other equally comfy options:  1/2

2. Wire Hoop Earrings

These earrings are the pair that I wear with everything, every day. They’re just a great thin versatile hoop and the perfect size. Check out this budget friendly version too!

3. Rope Trimmed Tote

I’ve always had a thing for nautical. The rope trim on this poppy red tote is the perfect detail. This budget friendly tote also has a nod to nautical but at a lower price point…and it expands!

4. Boyfriend Shorts

Slouchy boyfriend shorts are the perfect compliment to a laid back sweatshirt. If you’re not wanting to invest in more shorts this late in the season, you can substitute these boyfriend jeans instead.

5. Slip On Sneakers

These gold perforated slip on sneakers will become your new go-to. They’re comfy and go with everything!  This pair is more budget friendly but not perforated.
