BACK TO SCHOOL WITH COFFEE STAINED LACE

Posted on September 26 2017

Today might be 80 degrees, BUT Fall is coming! We couldn't be more excited. Our favorite fashionista, Sydney of Coffee Stained Lace, styled some of our new fall pieces and we are in love! She has an eye for style, so be sure to read her full blog post below for all the details! 

It’s here it’s here! The most wonderful time of the year is finally here! If there’s anything y’all should know about me, it’s my deep love for autumn & all that comes with it- especially the wardrobe! 

As the school year starts back up, I begin packing away my mini-dresses, wedges, silky tops & flirty rompers and trade them in for obnoxious bell sleeves, darkwash denim, chunky knits, booties of every kind & suede everything. I seriously can’t get enough of fall fashion trends, both old and upcoming. 

I am SO excited to share a few different pieces that are clear winners for this season from my favorite local boutique, Punch! With the fresh start of another school year & the weather slowly but surely starting to cool off, { I’ve been committing to fall clothes and boycotting the summer clothes, even if it means sweating all day and keeping my fan close by- all for the cause!! } it is officially time    to look closely at some pieces that you will definitely need to add to your closet- and your tote bag- this season.

No need to say goodbye to the off-the-shoulder!

This khaki trench coat/dress is simply to die for. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be a perfect addition to my closet and perfect for a breezy morning coffee & croissant. Paired with booties or a chunky suede heel, and topped off with a simple silk scarf, this look transports me straight from my busy day at school to the streets of Paris {hey, a girl can dream, right?} If I wanted to wear it as a jacket, it’s perfect for over an off the shoulder dress or top with denim and a stiletto! Can’t wait to keep styling this one- and trust me, you’ll need to grab one fast, it’s already a shop favorite!


Take note, ladies.

And if you’re anything like me, being a planner and school-bound professional, I am glued to my Erin Condren planner & all of the school accessories I can get my hands on. Luckily, Punch just stocked their shelves with tons of planners, notebooks & school necessities, including pieces from Kate Spade! You’ll immediately need one of everything, my wish list keeps growing!
 

Let’s get back to the basics {and I’m not referring to PSLs &  pumpkin picking..}

We all need to remember to come back to some basic, clutch pieces that come in handy no matter what and can be worn a million different ways. That being said, this modernized take on a maxi skirt is perfect for dressing up to head to dinner with your girlfriends, or dressing down to head to class or the apple orchard on the weekend- you take your pick.


With the fun ruffle detail, it’s easy to keep the look simple with a plain tee or chambray top & statement earrings, or you can pick a statement top with fun bell sleeves and a fall floral pattern to mix things up. Oh, the endless possibilities…

I’m so excited to continue finding some favorite fall pieces & styling them! Head to Punch to find some of these {& more!} must-have items. I can’t wait to see how you wear them!

Cheers to all the autumn things!

Xxx,

Sydney Paige
