Spotted: Our Favorite Looks From #NYFW

It’s officially another year, another #NYFW that’s come and gone in a flash. Luckily, we have Instagram to thank for keeping us abreast of the heavy hitting trends spotted over the course of the nine-day fashion extravaganza. From beautiful boho florals, luxe velvet touches, striking snake prints, and reimagined vintage shapes, our favorite fall trends could be spotted around every city street corner.

We scrolled through the endless queue of street style looks in our feeds—from the aspirational, totally-out-there ensembles to the slightly more attainable ones—to round up the best of the best style moments. Armed with this inspo (and of course, the statement-making handbags to go with them), it’s safe to say we can’t wait to take on fall fashion on our own turf.

15 Outfits To Help Ease you Into Fall mode

Well, it happened: Summer '18 has come to its (un)official close with the passing of Labor Day weekend. Luckily, while we were busy wondering how the sunshine season flew by before our eyes, our favorite bloggers were hard at work piecing together the outfits that'll carry us through the end of one season and into the start of another. 

From lightweight styles to conquer lingering summer heatwaves (without breaking a sweat) to the layered fall looks that'll have us daydreaming of crisp fall air, every combo shares one common denominator: the Mini Priscilla satchel. See how the must-have handbag of the season is taking over street style looks everywhere — and while you're at it, enjoy a healthy dose of outfit inspo. See, summer ending isn't all bad.

Wrapping Up Summer '18: Brahmin x Newport Polo

Screen Shot 2018-08-31 at 9.37.58 AM.png

With the arrival of Labor Day Weekend at our doorstep, we can't help but look back at all the fun we had this summer. Between roadtripping around the country to bring the best of Brahmin to you — from Memphis to San Francisco to our neighboring coastal New England city, Newport R.I. — we've been busy bees. But before the sunshine season (unofficially) ends, we thought it'd only be fit to pop up one last time at our favorite summer destination, Newport Polo.

From sipping on our signature Brahmin Spritz (available for purchase at the Twisted Pony bar), to snapping polaroids with the cutest polo props, to yes, getting our shop on with our favorite summer styles and fall arrivals, there'll be plenty of fun for everyone. We should also mention, you'll have the chance to win our fall It-Bag, the Mini Priscilla, for FREE. Sound like your kind of Saturday? Come root for the home team vs. England — and help us wrap up summer '18 in style — at the Polo Fields, starting at 2 p.m. until the end of the match. 

Can't make it? No FOMO necessary. Follow along on Instagram stories and with our hashtag, #BrahminTour, for highlights in real time — and stay tuned to see where we're headed next on the Brahmin Tour!

Take The Quiz: Which Mini Priscilla Style Are YOU?

Screen Shot 2018-08-20 at 1.01.03 PM.png

Every handbag — like every handbag owner — has a personality. Bright and outgoing; functional and classic; trendy and fearless; the list goes on and on. What makes shopping so much fun is discovering those statement pieces that speak to you on a personal level. (Our mentality: Your handbag is practically glued to your arm, so shouldn't it feel like a seamless continuation of you?)

To make finding your handbag match-made-in-heaven easier than ever, we put our heads together to create The Mini Priscilla personality quiz. Take it for a spin here to figure out which style is bound to be your next bag BFF — and don't be afraid to take it twice, because it is possible to have more than one bestie in your lineup, after all. ;)

Shop:

From left to right: the Mini Priscilla in Travertine Ballington, $325.00; the Mini Priscilla in Tart Melbourne, $265.00; the Mini Priscilla in Black Topsail, $325.00; and the Mini Priscilla in Multi Hansen; $315.00.

FALLing for: Nordstrom Anniversary Styles

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially back — in our feeds, in our emails, and in our malls — to gently remind us that although it still feels like high summer, fall (and more importantly, fall fashion) isn't far off.

Now Trending: Smooth Moves Into Fall

With August just around the corner, the buzz around fall fashion is slowly starting to gather steam. And while we're certainly not ready to pack away our colorful beach totes and summer crossbodies just yet, we'd be lying if we said we weren't excited to revel in all the juicy new trends headed our way, too. A quick favorite, being, the revival of vintage-inspired designs featured in our favorite transitional texture of the season: smooth, earthy brown Cognac Topsail.

Back in both fan-favorite and fresh-to-the-scene styles, our Cognac Topsail collection has a little something for everyone. Below, get a peek at our must-have picks for fall...

The Brahmin Tour: Mingling In Memphis

There’s something about summer that stirs up our sense of wanderlust. Long, sunny days followed by balmy nights feel like the perfect opportunity to dust off our travel essentials and get to exploring. Which is why this year, we decided to hit the road and bring the best of Brahmin to you with the first-ever #BrahminTour. Yep, you read right. 

In celebration of our brand-new Saddle Creek store — and to kick off our ongoing summer road trip in style — we took to the birthplace of rock ’n’ roll to get our festival on at the Beale Street Music Festival. There, we took in the scenes, posed for polaroids, and sipped on pink lemonade — all while hanging out with our fave concert-goers (yes, you). 

Screen Shot 2018-05-23 at 1.56.32 PM.png

The party didn’t end there, though. We teamed up with our friends from Thrillist at local Memphis mainstay The Second Line to co-host a special food-and-fun-filled evening with our favorite local blogger pals. From sipping on specialty cocktails to sharing an up-close peek at our exclusive Saddle Creek collection, it was a night to remember.

Summer Trend: Sea And Be Seen

While there are more than a few reasons to love summer (prolonged days, balmy nights, sandal weather... seriously, we could go on for days) the biggest perk in our book is being able to relax and unwind on a trip to the beach.

Which is why it’s only natural that our favorite past-time would help inform our newest seasonal color collection: saturated, multi-dimensional Turquoise Melbourne. Reminiscent of smooth blue-green waves rolling into shore and lazy days spent baking under the sun, one glance will transport you to the tropical island of your dreams… if only for a quick second.

So, whether you’re headed on your next getaway (or are just desperately in need of one), let this bold hue help get you in the vacation mindset. Now all that’s left to do: Bring on the piña coladas.
