Fall-lalalalaaa!

I had to wear a hoodie to my son's soccer game this past weekend. In Texas, this is huge! It means that Fall is here...or coming...very slowly. I was definitely singing my happy Fall song! That hoodie was enough for me to start pulling out some Fall favorites from last year, and start taking note of some things I would like to add for this year. As far as trends go for this Fall, they are cute and fun and actually work for everyday real life- whether you commute to work each day, are a homemaker, are retired, or a student. Thank you fashion designer people!

To get the ball rolling, we came up with a Fall Must-Have shopping guide. We did our research (reading InStyle and People StyleWatch counts as research, right?) and narrowed down our favorites. You can think of this as an introduction to what you will be seeing here on the blog throughout the upcoming months. We will talk styling, shopping, options and tips.

As far as colors go, jewel tones seem to be taking over the retail stores. Think burgundy, deep purple, and forest green. Black isn't going anywhere, and white is here to stay year round. Hold on to your leather moto jackets, pants, and leggings (confession: mine weren't going anywhere even if they were "out of style"). Suede is back and it is huge. Caramel hues will take your suede into Spring as well- think booties, skirts, or fun tops.  Love a versatile purchase!
