August Favorites Under $150

by | Favorites Under $150, Style

How did we get to the middle of August!?!?  August Favorites Under $150 focuses on Fall transition.  Although it is still hot as blazes, August and back to school have me thinking about making a few changes to my wardrobe while still staying cool.

I always feel a little teased when we go to Telluride in August because the weather is cool and I can pull out some sweaters and fall colors…then I come back to the Texas heat!  Sort of the reverse of what I feel if I go to the beach in January and then come home to the cold!

I stopped in one of my favorite Dallas boutiques, Avara, (who also happens to have a fabulous website!) to pick up a few things for myself and the girls for back to school.   They have a lot of great fall transition styles and I couldn’t resist these tops.  I first saw the silky blue top and it was a must.  This dusty blue color is a great muted tone to wear for the next several months as well as in the spring and summer.  I love this flutter sleeve dress from Tuckernuck that is the same dusty blue.  This seems to be a color trend for fall also as I’ve seen over and over.  You know I have no issue with that!

Then I saw the nude blush color.  “If you love it, buy it in multiples” I always say!  Much like my Cuyana oversized sweaer that I have in three colors, I know I’ll wear both of these tops and have styled them differently.

I love a simple white cotton dress for summer and then taking it into fall paired with the right accessories in a rich browns like tiger’s eye and tortoise.  This gorgeous white dress comes also in black, a coral color and tan.

This white top that I wore in Lake Tahoe sold out quickly and has just been restocked!  Here you can see how I styled it both with denim shorts and my favorite jeans.

Lastly is this darling floral top.  It is a soft ivory background with rust, blue and green. Paired with my favorite denim, it’s perfect for fall transition.  I’d also love any of these tops with shorts, of course.

I’ve linked lots of other great finds to get us through the heat and looking a bit more “seasonal” as we begin to attend back to school meetings, teacher meet and greets, etc. in the boutique below.  I have one daughter starting school each week for the next three weeks so back to school is definitely on my mind!
