Hello and happy August!  I like to think of it as the golden hour of summer as we get ready to welcome the new season while savoring the sweet sensations of this one.  Today's look captures that with its warm tones and spiced hues.  I love neutrals and never tire of the many ways to wear them throughout all months mom the year.

Here I have built a simple yet sophisticated look using wardrobe basics you likely already own.  Cream trousers are an easy way to start.  This pair has a nice flow and flattering silhouette that will work on nearly all body shapes and sizes.  Personally, I really enjoy wearing anything high waisted as I feel it provides a lot of shape and the right type of structure to whatever it is I am wearing....and it's ultra feminine.

Late summer always arouses the sweet girl in me even if it comes in the form of a sleeveless sweater vest like the one seen here.  I love the cocoa bean color paired with the ivory tone of the trousers.  Not only do they effortlessly complement one another, they also capture the transitional feel of the season by speaking to those tones coming up that will be a bit deeper and rich in their value.

Gold and tan accessories are all I feel are needed to complete the look.  Today I'm reaching for some classic gold hoops, my favorite Celine sunglasses in tortoise shell, a metal watch and some tan and gold tone hardware sandals.  Finally, this gorgeous leather trimmed tote pulls the entire look together while giving it the just-right bit of casual elegance that I love.

This is how I will be approaching the month of August with this and similar easy yet done looks that give summer a proper, stylish send off.  All pieces and similar options have been linked below for you to further explore anything that catches your eye.  I hope you are planning on enjoying a lovely end of summer exploring all the things that bring you happiness this month.  Have fun!
