Falling in Love with Fall #7

Falling in Love with Fall #7

This is the last excerpt about fall fashion.  Something that I didn’t note but thought you might have noticed is the use of hats.  Hats are very popular still this year.  The fedora makes a return but not the same way that we’ve seen made popular all those years ago by Kevin Federline.  This time it looks more like Sienna Miller.  Floppy, wider brim, more boho.  This hat looks best when worn with attitude.  It has just the right mixture of sass and sweetness.

Also hugely popular this year is the beanie which will come in handy when we’re freezing in the pick up line at school, right?  Wear it with all of your casual looks.

Hats will add a little something to your basics.  Wearing all solids and feeling a little off? Throw one on.  Not to mention, forget doing your hair!  These are the cure alls for bad hair days.

I hope I’ve got you out busy fall shopping!!

Here is something I’m coveting this fall, army green skinny jeans, definitely stretchy, definitely soft.  Ahh.  There is just something about this color lately that I can’t get enough of.  So I guess it’s a good thing the military look is still popular this season too, since this color goes right along with it.
I’ll see you in it soon!

Falling In Love With Fall #5

You might feel bad if you just purged your closet of the color cobalt.   Cobalt jeans were all the range the past few seasons but the color hasn’t died.  This year, you’ll find it in unexpected articles, like blazers.  And if you are really lucky, you might still have that first cobalt blue shirt that you bought, oh, several seasons ago.

The color is exciting for fall and winter.  Let’s just say, there’s a reason they call it electric blue.  It’ll give your wardrobe a little much needed jolt.

Want a simple jeans and t-shirt look? The key to keeping it updated this fall is the straight leg. You might want to retire those flares…everything is cut close to the body for a maximum modern feel. Make it casual by rolling up the cuffs. Whatever you do, don’t stress, it’s still just a t-shirt and jeans!

Falling in Love with Fall #3

Falling in Love with Fall #3

This is a total repeat from spring but is still talk worthy.  Every few seasons shoes go through rotation on what is in and what is out.  And this fall, the pointy heel is back in.

Does this mean you should get rid of all of your round-toed platform pumps?  Don’t be ridiculous.  This just means while the pointy toed heels may have been in the back of the closet for a while, the good old classic staple is now a front-runner.

These heels will always look smart and sassy when paired with workwear.  They say  “take me seriously” in a way a sandal or a platform never could. So when you have a big presentation to make, let the pointy-toed heel be your first choice.

Second item up on the list of fall style…wait for it!  Sweaters!  How is this new, you ask? Well, unlike the popular cardigans of late, these sweaters are your old school pullovers.  Like something you’d you purchased from United Colors of Benetton to pair with jeans to go to your middle school dance in 1990.  These sweaters don’t necessarily need to be boxy but they aren’t long.

The way to wear this fashionably this fall is to pair it with a skirt.  If you want to show off your backside, leave the jeans for junior high and pair it with a pencil skirt.  Not feeling great about the derriere today, how about a skater skirt?

Either way, it’ll be a fresh take on an old favorite.

Enough is enough, I can’t wait one more day!  It’s time to talk about fall!  I know you are all anxious to go out and buy yourself something.  Now that the kids have their new shoes and pencils, doesn’t mom deserve to update with a few things as well?  Absolutely.

This week will be my series on what you must have for fall.  Some trends you might find on other fashion resources but mainly they are what I’m craving!

First up, patterned pants.  Yup, this was on the list last year and I know many of you are still holding out.  You’re thinking, how am I going to look at pictures of me in these in twenty years?  Let me tell you, you’ll be crying over your hairstyle and your shoes and how you thought you were heavy then but were really young and thin.  So don’t worry about your patterned pants!  Embrace them.  Wear them.  Like a bad boyfriend in high school, we may all be sorry but for now, they are so much fun!

The fail-safe way to wear these is to pair them with a neutral solid.  Pick a color from the print and it can’t get easier.  But if you really want to step it up a notch, pair the print with another print.  And that is what makes this pants look so current for fall.

Here is a combo I created with fresco printed pants and a striped button down.  Keep them in the same color family.  And remember that one pattern should be smaller than the other to complement each other.

Turn on the visual interest in your wardrobe!  Try out the patterned pant!

Hold Your Horses

If you’re like me, you are just about foaming at the mouth to talk about fall fashion, but hold your horses!

Now is the time to buy…summer clothes!  I know.  Bleh.  But seriously.  Now is the time to go dig through those endless clearance racks.  But first, start with a list of what you need.

Trust me, next summer, you’ll thank me.  Not to mention now that it is back to school time, the weather is going to get HOT.

So throw out those old white camis that are dingy.  Go get new ones.  Buy flip flops in the bulk for next year’s pool.  And just wait.  Because even though we’re all biting at the bit for scarves and jeans, it ain’t time yet.

Sad face.
