This fall it feels like fashion is finally pushing past the 90’s basics we’ve all embraced and loved over the past few seasons. Ruffles, suede, and prints are back in full swing. It truly feels like a season where experimentation, pushing boundaries, and style where anything goes. Whether it’s a floral pattern you’ve been hesitant to wear or some of the best flats you’ve seen in awhile, this season is all about embracing a relaxed and smart style.
Fall fashion is rolling out in full force and confession, my minimalist tendencies are deeply battling with my love of all things on-trend and wanting to look on point. This month, I have a lot of big expenses hitting all at once. School bills, business expenses, and medical bills all are coming down the pike this month, making spending excess money on clothes not an option. It’s real, but a slight bummer. Maybe you’ve been there and still want to look amazing. You see new fashion roll out and realize you haven’t gone shopping for anything but basics for years.
Here are 5 tips we use to freshen up our wardrobe that are absolutely free. That’s right. Free.

When it comes to basics, capsule wardrobes, and fashion trends, it’s easy to steer towards black. After two years of living in Northern California, I’ve realized that my wardrobe has quickly shifted to stark neutrals and my closet has become a black hole. (I think I own 4 pairs of the same black Madewell skinny jeans and wear them almost every day of the week.) As summer is approaching, it’s time to ditch the all black outfits and add a bit of color and spice back into your wardrobe.

As a kid, I remember my mom’s silk blouse. It was the essence of femininity and the fancy piece she afforded herself in an otherwise simple wardrobe. With flowy sleeves and pearlized buttons, she only wore it for the most special of occasions. Whether it was date nights or weddings, this piece made it’s appearance when mom needed a break from being mom and wanted to express beauty unlike any other. As I aged, I learned that silk processing has come a long way from the blouse that once lived in my mom’s closet. A perfect basic for ripped skinnies, a flowy tank for date nights, or a summer dress paired with a simple sandal. Silk has stayed premium and luxurious, while more accessible to the public. Today we’re teaming up with our friends at Grana as we style our favorite silk dress for the spring.
