Shop My Instagram: The Best 19 Things I Wore This Month

Shop My Instagram is a series dedicated to our associate editor’s favorite fashion buys. Kristen always gets questions about her outfits on her Instagram account, @kristenmarienichols, so she decided to turn her latest picks into a shopping series where she can highlight current must-haves. Come back each month to find out what she’s wearing.

Right now feels like the final stretch of summer. The time before fall, before fashion week, before all the looming trends hit the street style set in a huge way. So right now, I’m just wearing what I want to want to wear without observing the trends in a very studied way. Sure, I hopped on Dior’s buzzy saddle bag re-release, and sure, I’m favoring puffy sleeves above all else. But when it comes down to it, in my opinion, summer is really about dressing for yourself without strictly adhering to any set trends.

Here, I’m highlighting some of my favorite outfits finds from August as summer is winding down. You’ll find everything from square-neck tops and super-wide-leg pants to head-to-toe red to the perfect (and I mean perfect) LBD that clocks in at just $120. Ahead, shop my favorite outfits from my Instagram this month.

This outfit pretty much sums up my style in one photo. Classic meets modern with pieces that have clean lines and can be worn season after season.

I'm very into square-neck tops at the moment, and this one is perfect.

Available in size XS.

I've never received so many DMs about one piece in my life. Everyone on Instagram wanted to know where to buy these pants.

Available in sizes 2 to 10.

MyDomaine's editorial director, Sacha Strebe, saw this outfit and told me I was giving her Marie Antoinette vibes.

I have a big thing for statement tops, and this is the most iconic one to enter my closet. Paired with the skirt of the season, this is by far one of my favorite outfits from the summer.

This top was love at first sight.

Available in sizes XS to L.

While the popular leopard version of my skirt sold out, I now have my eye on this floral one.

Available in sizes XXS to XL.

Clearly, I have a thing for Réalisation Par. Here's a wrap dress I can't stop wearing.

Can't stop, won't stop.

Available in sizes XXS to XL.

When it comes to red, I think it's even more fun to double it up.

Colored denim is happening in a big way for fall and I'm very into this style.

Available in sizes 24 to 32.

These are the affordable shoes I can't stop wearing.

I've been on the hunt for an elevated, everyday bag for a while now. I came up short until I discovered this beautiful style from Tory Burch, which was inspired by the iconic Lee Radziwill.

While I don't often wear flats, this style won me over.

I have a thing for pretty floral dresses, and this one from LoveShackFancy was just what my summer wardrobe needed.

This would also be perfect for a wedding.

Available in sizes P to L.

I'm all about mixing pieces that are high and low. In this outfit, that means a Dior bag with a Zara top and $69 Le Specs sunglasses.



I've been waiting for the return of the Dior saddle bag for months now and even ordered an OG '90s version prior to this.

I was terrified of small sunglasses for the last year but finally decided to embrace them.

The perfect top to wear with jeans and skirts.

Available in sizes XS to L.

The thing I love most about this dress? All of the small details. The shoulders are slightly puffed. The dress is accented with scalloped trim. And the best part? An open back.

This dress makes me feel like I'm a cool Italian girl.

Available in sizes XS to XL.

Here's a seriously good Zara find that makes me feel like I just stepped off a '90s Chanel runway or the set of Clueless.

I would also wear this with jeans.

Available in sizes XS to L.

Just look at those pocket details.

Available in sizes XS to L.

Earlier this year, I fell in love with Australian brand With Jéan. Its tops and dresses are perfect for last-minute summer buys.

Fully leaning into the "nouveau milkmaid" trend.

Available in sizes XS to L.
