The drama of this beautiful midi skirt is amazing and the mix of small and large print is so cool.  If this skirt length doesn’t work for you, it does come in a shorter variety as well.

This is the perfect shift dress for a casual day at work or a fun backyard BBQ.  I love the ease and comfort of this look.

I can’t get enough of this print! The slim fit capri pants are so adorable and mod.  They kind of remind me of Gidget.  Remember her?

What’s a summer wardrobe with a light and flowing maxi dress?  This fabric is stunning and would great with some simple jewelry and some flat sandals.

Last, but absolutely not least, this adorable short set is my favorite of the bunch.  At first glance it looks like a one piece but it’s actually shorts and a peplum top.  This a flirty look great for a first date or brunch with the girls.

Head to your local Banana Republic store to get your hands on some these limited pieces.  They are sure to fly off the racks!

Isabel Marant x H&M is coming!!!

Although the Isabel Marant x H&M collection is slated to release November 14th, the looks have already been leaked!  Hallelujah! I have perused through all 114 looks and I’m predicting an epic riot to occur on the launch date.  The clothes exude the designer’s signature boho-sophisticated-hippie chic that the world has grown to love.  Obviously, I haven’t been able to touch the fabrics but they appear to be very well made.  Some stand-out pieces are definitely the leather trousers, the tweed crop jacket, and the black, slouchy booties.  Here is just a little sneak peek below:

I cannot wait to see this jacket in the store and touch the fabric.  It looks so intricate and divine.    It’s cool but not so trendy that you can’t wear it for years to come.

I’m also loving this menswear-inspired overcoat! Another timeless piece you can wear forever.

I really appreciate how the Isabel Marant x H&M collection includes pieces with the designer’s signature tie-dye fabrics.  The graphic print on these trousers are uniquely gorgeous.

I would never think to pair these booties with this length of dress but it looks very effortless in this look.  Let’s talk about these booties! Slouchy, fringe, booties with a cool wedge-shaped heel.  I see myself involved in a cat fight for these booties in my near future….

These black leather trousers are everything!!! The sexy, lace-up detail on the sides are a little reminiscent of Brett Michael’s Poison days but I think they will look really hot when you put them on.

A gold party dress????  Don’t mind if I do!

Mark your calendars and use a sick day at work.  You do not want to miss this one!!  See ya at H&M and don’t be mad if I fight you for the black fringe booties ;-)
