The Best is Yet to Come

Happy Monday our beautiful fashionistas! We hope you all had a restful and stylish weekend. As you may or may not know, P.S. Truly Yours is in the process of a major reboot. Yes, we are getting bigger and better. We are thrilled to be working with the talented Kelly Christine Studio in the redesign of our site as we continue to share our love of fashion with you within a brand new and exceptionally beautiful space.

Our Fall Wish Lists

Working in retail always has you thinking ahead to the next season. With school almost starting and an odd amount of cold days this Chicago summer, we're already shopping for autumn/winter. As coats and boots start coming into stores, we must admit we're getting a little anxious for layers and length. Here are the pieces we can't wait to snatch up for fall!


Samantha's Must-Haves


Bri's Must-Haves

Now that makes the idea of going back to backpacks and bookwork a lot easier! What pieces are you most looking forward to buying for fall?

Truly Yours,

Hump Day: Nautical Nation

There are still some boat-worthy days left this summer! Even though those days may be numbered, that doesn't mean that our best nautical looks need to go to waste! Seaside inspiration has transformed the lifestyle world. The classic navy and white stripes are now looking great as a bed spread or as a blazer. Not to mention the amazing things that are being made out of boating rope - like this awesome lamp. So, guys and girls, let's set sail and take this post to sea for a totally nautical Hump Day.


Stripes are forever and nautical fashion is here to stay. Have a very Happy Hump Day and enjoy the beautiful boating weather while it lasts!

Truly yours,

Back to Chic

August is here and you know what that means... schedules are being received, books are being bought and backpacks are being packed. (Excuse us as we cry in a corner...) It's getting closer and closer to back-to-school. The September issues that we're dying to see are always accompanied by back-to-school specials, which leave us longing for more time in the sun. Well fashionistas, when reality hits and we have no choice but to face the school bells, there's nothing smarter than doing so in style! Today we have our top picks to take on the homework and homeroom as chic as can be.


Beautiful Backpacks

Self-expressive Stationary

Pretty Planners

Wacky Writing Utensils

Personalized Pencil Pouches


Now, if that doesn't make learning fun, we don't know what will. Happy Back-to-School!

Truly Yours,

Summer Accessories

While accessorizing rules stay pretty basic, the pieces themselves definitely alter from season to season. You've seen our take on accessories from last fall, so now we're showing you the secrets of summer. Jewelry goes from heavy and metallic in the fall to light and layered in the summer, accenting looks with a simple touch instead of changing them completely. Check out our favorite simplistic accessory trends for easy breezy summer looks.

Body Chains
Headpieces


Light Layers



Hats


Organica 
With these hot-weather trends, you are sure to complete your bohemian, care-free summer looks. What trends inspire you?
