As a semi-new mom, I’ll admit I’ve somewhat lost what I believe is my fashion sense. I can’t completely blame it on being a mom – I know many fashionable moms – I just haven’t spent much time recently keeping up-to-date on fashion trends or shopping. And I can honestly say that I’ve spent more on clothes for FW over the past few months than myself.
So, when I was invited to attend a blogger event at Saks Fifth Avenue at Beachwood to preview some of their new clothes for the summer, I was pretty excited to put on some makeup, put on a dress (and a mom bun) and get up-to-speed on what’s new in the fashion world. I was treated to brunch and mimosas and a mini fashion show!
Here are some of the trends that we saw that I’m excited about:
Bare shoulders, lace and florals were some other trends that they shared. You can see a mix of most of those in all of the above!
I looooved seeing all these styles – maybe this will be just what I need to get out of my fashion funk. That gingham one shoulder top with the white capris is my FAVORITE – I can totally see myself wearing that to a summer bbq (4th of July anyone) and even work with a jacket (we’re pretty casual). Some of the brands featured included Gucci, Scripted, YSL, Cinq A Sept and Milly.
I learned some cool things about Saks while I was there – for example, they are really working to meet the needs of a contemporary audience. Yes, they feature well known designers (hello – did you see those Gucci sneakers?! and that YSL bag?), but they also are all about finding new, less known designers to feature and share exclusive lines with their customers. They also have a feature on their website, the It List, where you can shop by trend! Oh – and you know that “Cleveland or Nowhere” shirt? That’s something you can get at Saks!
Needless to say, I think I now have a shopping bug. And if you are following me on Instagram, you saw in my story some of the other things I was eyeing at the store (including their entire shoe collection!).
So, I guess it’s time to go shopping!! Some questions for you:
- Which of the looks is your favorite?
- What trend are you loving right now?
