Pretty Fix: The July List

Pretty Fix The July List2

The Pretty Fix is a monthly feature at Get Your Pretty On that features my top five picks for the month that you can shop for on your own to stay in style. The idea for it was born out of frustration that some of you have had with other monthly box services that you feel “miss the mark”.

We’re to that point in the season where you don’t want to invest a lot into more summer pieces but aren’t quite ready for fall. That’s why this month’s fix features some pieces that will easily transition into your early fall wardrobe. While I try to keep things budget friendly, different price points are included if you prefer a higher quality alternative.

Consider me your personal shopper. Here’s your July Pretty Fix.

July Pretty Fix

1. Bucket Bag

A neutral bucket bag will be your go to for fall 2016 for good reason.  It’s stylish without being too trendy and it’s just the right size.  Shopping Options:  1/2/3

2. Denim Culottes

Denim culottes and gaucho pants are a comfy alternative to shorts and they’ll last beyond this season. You’ll be able to pair them with slouchy sweaters and ankle boots, sneakers or loafers when the weather turns cooler. Shopping Options:  1/2/3

3. Printed Neckerchief 

A printed neckerchief  (aka skinny scarf) is chicer and cooler than a full sized scarf.  Try one in place of a necklace to add interest to your summer outfits.  Shopping Options:  1/2/3

4. Suede Mules

A beautiful pair of rust colored suede mules will transition perfectly into fall.   Shopping Options: 1/2/3

5. Leather Wrap Bracelet

The earthiness of a leather wrap bracelet adds appeal to outfits without trying too hard. Shopping Options:  1/2/3

    • Thanks for dropping by and the invite, Marta. I’m loving culottes right now too. Style and comfort, that’s a win, win!

    Great ideas, Alison! A neutral bucket bag would be a great addition to summer and fall wardrobes and would work for many ages of women, too! -Melissa

    • Melissa, you are so spot on. Neutral bucket bags are a true wardrobe staple. Thanks for stopping in and sharing.

  • Beverly Baughman Cravath

    I love the culottes and I love the mules, just not together. The chunky shoe and the wide legs of the pants aren’t something I can pull off. What other footwear would you suggest?

    • Culottes are perfect for showing off your shoes, Beverly. There are so many options this spring that are right on trend and look great with the hem of a culotte. Anything with a chunky or stacked heel will work for summer as will summer wedges or a barely there kitten heel sandal, for work, a classic pointed toe pump is a great option for culottes too. For those of you that prefer flats, there are tons of options from sneekers to slides. The trick is to try them on with your culottes and see what look gets your pretty on.
