Well, it is officially the back half of August, which is typically when I begin thinking a bit more about fall fashion! While I’m not ready to let go of summer just yet (I’m hanging on to the platform shoe trend as long as I possibly can), I am noticing more jewel tones and deeper shades of greens and browns creep into my shopping cart. This double breasted navy plaid jacket from Veronica Beard and this pleated beige faux leather skirt from 3.1 Phillip Lim in particular have been early season highlights! Scroll below to see more picks from Saks August Gift Card Event from some of my favorite designers including Christopher John Rogers, Ulla Johnson, Kimberly Goldson, and Kika Vargas!
