Transitioning to Fall on a Budget

by Remington Ready August 28, 2014




Fall is fast approaching and chock-full of my favorite things… college football, haunted houses, and pumpkin spice lattes. While many of us are ready to go back-to-school shopping for the inevitable drop in temperatures, try transitioning your summer pieces into fall with these money-saving tips.


Fall Trend 1: Plaid


How to transition? Window-pane print has been popular all summer long with no plans to slow down heading into fall. The black and white pattern makes the perfect backdrop to showcase your accessories and matches almost everything in your closet. Tory Burch loves this print, but Windsor Store makes a fabulous printed peplum top for only $22.90.


Fall Trend 2: Structured Bags


How to transition? A Celine purse is chic year-round, but you won’t break the bank carrying this almost identical $35 alternative from Windsor Store.


Fall Trend 3: Matte Red Lips


How to transition? Tone down the bright red lip by opting for a more crimson color as the weather cools. Stila makes an amazing no-smudge liquid lip-stick, but for only $2.99 Elf makes an awesome substitute.


Fall Trend 4: Pendant Necklaces


How to transition? Kendra Scott’s token bright necklaces have been seen all over the blogosphere this season, but Purple Peridot put a spin on her iconic shape in jewel tones for fall… and for only $15.99.


Fall Trend 4: Wide-Brimmed Hats


How to transition? Floppy hats can be found all over the beach during the summer months, but swap the straw for felt heading into fall. Free People makes the perfect wide-brimmed hat, but for only $24, ASOS’s version is on-trend as well.

Fringe For The Fall

by Erica Zar August 11, 2014







Hello! I’m Erica Zar, the blogger behind Casually Styled, a personal style blog. I am so honored to be a guest blogger today for Remington Ready!

Today I want to share one of the top trends for fall 2014, which actually is a continuation from what we saw this past spring.  Yes, I’m talking about fringe! Fringe has made its way back into fashion in a big and exciting way. We have seen fringe over the years make its mark on western wear and casual wear, everything from boots, jackets and purses, but now it is taking on a new life of its own with pieces that truly make it a fashion statement.

There are so many ways to add fringe to your style without overstating it.  The trick to fringing is to focus on one piece to keep it simple and classy, and treating it as an accessory to what you are wearing.

Here are some great examples to incorporate fringe for that effortless and chic statement:

1.  Fringe Boots – a great way to add an extra splash of pizzazz to a pair of skinny jeans or even a dress! (Boots seen here, currently available by DV by Dolce Vita at Nordstrom)

2. Fringe Purses – let your purse do the talking as the statement piece to compliment your outfit. (Purse seen here, currently available at Target online and in stores).

3. Fringe Necklaces – a hot trend this fall, add a fringe necklace to a plain tank or tee for a subtle but bold statement!  (Necklace seen here, currently available at Forever21 online or in stores).

4. Fringe Jackets – another huge comeback, not just for the Wild West anymore! A great fall piece to add to your week-end wardrobe!

5. Kimono – a personal favorite of mine, the kimono has become a popular cover-up over the past few months – choose one with fringed sleeves and you’ll be ahead of the fashion curve! (Kimono seen here, currently available at Forever21)

6. Formal Wear – Make an entrance with an eye-catching fringe cocktail dress or evening gown that will make you feel sexy and glam!

7. Bathing Suits – Planning a Caribbean vacation or cruise? Swimwear is taking the plunge with fringe this season as well!

8. Vintage Fringe – A trip to your favorite vintage store or maybe mom’s closet will score you a classic fringe piece that will definitely make a statement!
Let’s face it, almost every one of us has owned a fringed piece at one point in our lives and it was always fun to wear!  Bring back some of that fun with this season’s fringe trend!

Dressing Up Shorts For Summer

by Amy Welch August 1, 2014


I typically shy away from shorts, simply because I hate my legs. However, in the North Carolina humidity, sometimes they are a necessary closet staple! I picked this pair up from Loft last summer on sale and I am so glad I did because they are so versatile! I love silk shorts because not only are they super comfortable, but I love the movement of them.
These shorts traveled on a dinner date with me, to a summer outdoor concert and to pick flowers with girlfriends. I believe as we get older we need to pick items in our closet that not only make us feel confident, but items that can accompany us on our many adventures in life. These shorts have me reevaluating my hate/love with showing my legs. I know they are in my future much more this summer!
What one item in your closet do you find so be most versatile?
