Well Happy Monday to my Peeps! I hope everyone had a Super Sparkly Weekend and is ready to tackle the week! With cooler temps on my end…I am READY (well the mornings and evenings are cooler and during the day is a tad better…not 100% Fall weather yet but it’s coming, or at least I keep telling myself that!) Sooooooo…I have been putting this blog post off because it’s hard to talk about Fall Fashion when it’s almost 100 freakn’ degrees outside (at least to me it is…the Fashion industry started talking about Fall Fashion the Spring before Fall hits…how do they do that?) Anyways back to ME talking Fall Fashion for your benefit. Now, there are TONS of things I could go over because the trend list for this season is ENDLESS! But, I am a Mom and most of your are Mom’s who don’t want to rock every single trendy trend out there SO, I am going to go over some of my
Okay…so for my little look…Bomber, Stripe top (timeless piece) and corduroy skirt with Midi Boots! Every single one of these pieces is very versatile and didn’t break the bank. I’d say the entire look was less than $150…minus the Ray Ban Aviators. Duh
Bomber Jacket // Stripe Top // Button Front Skirt // Shoulder Bag // Midi Booties
Let’s start with my #1 on the list: THE BOMBER Jacket. Run, don’t walk to get one of these! They are a great piece to add to any wardrobe. You can get them in a variety of colors but I love Army Green…or Olive or Camo Green, whatev you wanna call it…it’s my color Jam. Also you can get them in different fabrics from Nylon to Satin to leather.
Next, MAJOR Plaid! And this plaid can go any which way. You can rock it grungy or more dressed up with Cashmere…anything goes with Plaid! Pair it with Leopard print to shake it up!
Ruffles and Lace…together or separate…the romantic yet vampy look is IN! I’m not a big ruffle fan, well…I take that back, depends on what kind of ruffles really, but I do love Lace! This look goes great with everything…however you want to rock it!
Flare Denim…It’s back Ladies, whether you like it or not…it’s back! And believe me, I am glad! I feel Flare Denim is very flattering, especially if you have hips, thighs and a booty or all of the above (which I do!). The Flare bottoms help to balance these “lovely” features out and can also help you look taller! Which is a bonus when you’re 5.4 and a half…ya, that’s right, I’m 5.4 and a half!
Lace Up…whether it be shoes, top or dresses…just Lace it up!
Shoes…or rather BOOTS, BOOTS and more BOOTS! Go Over the Knee…as high up and they will go or go “Midi”, the new replacement for Ankle Booties this season (oh, and they are also very Mod looking).
Embroidered! Yes, makes me think of Mexico and Summer, but the warm weather vibe is pushing it’s way into cooler seasons! You will find it on tops, dresses, jackets, jeans and even on boots!
Chokers! Ya, they may have been popular in the 1800’s, then again in the 60’s and again in the 90’s but Chokers are back and better than ever! This time you can find them in a variety of styles like layered!
Handbags…skies the limit from Saddle Bags, to Bucket bags to Snake Skin to fit your every fashion whim!
HATS! Not just necessary for bad hair days but also when you’re having a GREAT hair day! Hats are the ultimate accessory!
So by now you have made a pretty good list of your Fall “Must Have’s”! Please don’t tell your Hubby’s that these ideas came from me! YIKES!
Have a great week
