Fall Fashion Favorites

HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL!!

What a day to celebrate! I don’t care if it’s going to be one hundred degrees everything about Summer is dead to me. We can officially indulge in Pumpkin, Pumpkin Spice, and the best part about this season…

FALL FASHION.

Let me start off this Fall Fashion Post by saying never ever be a slave to “trends”. If you don’t like it or it doesn’t fit your body type don’t wear it! I’ve said this a million times and I will keep saying it, always stay true to yourself and your style. The following list is just a combination of my favorite current trends that really aren’t that much of a trend to me because I wear most of these pieces on the regular. They just happen to be trending. And I’m pretty thrilled about it, too. Let’s get to it!

I thought it was pretty perfect to add in Dior’s Dictionary Word Seasons for this post as well!

Here is Pantone’s color palette for the season for your reference.

Long coats and dusters

Coats this season are loooong. I deeply love this trend because being a tall chick when I find a coat or duster that’s actually long enough for me (it means shorties need them hemmed, haha! I don’t feel bad you can’t add fabric.) I’m truly ecstatic! Even though a lot of them could still be longer.

Leopard

While it’s true leopard is no new trend it was indeed all over the runways. And lets face it this long leopard coat will literally go with anything and everything. Plus it’s cozy for this pregnant lady so I expect to be living in it all fall.

Monochrome Reds

Wine (also known as Biking Red), or Chili Pepper are the big ones. I went for bright Chili Pepper and I’m loving that this is a color for Fall. I think it really brightens up the usual fall colors. Make a statement with this head to toe look this season!

"The color story suggests rich tones, each capable of making a statement, but also with a versatility that creates warmth and harmony when paired together,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Rich Green, Lingerie as outerwear, the power blazer

I was so happy to see so much green for Fall! It’s having a major moment. For me? This moment is always as it has always been my favorite color. Also, blazers are huge too so I’ve combined three trends into one for this look. Lingerie as outerwear is also still going strong right now.

This color is close to Eden in the Pantone Autumn/Winter 2019/20 color palette.

Capes

This one was on my list last year too and I’m happy to talk about it again. If you know me even a little then you know this is not a trend to me. A good cape (or several) is an absolute staple in my closet. It was also on my fall fashion list last year. I’m thrilled to see that it is once again “trendy” this fall. But, don’t think I won’t still be wearing them in ten years.

Snake Print

You’ve likely already added something to your wardrobe that is snake print. Or in my case have a ton to already choose from. The fabulous thing about this print is that you can use it to switch up your usual leopard. It’s everywhere so pants, coats, dresses, or blazers it’s your call to make this trend exactly what you want it to be and what is the most “you”. Of course my newest addition is snake print boots.

Statement Shoes

Bright heels were seen on the runways of Saint Laurent, Victoria Beckham, and Emilio Pucci this season and it’s the perfect way to add a little zing to your wardrobe. A bright colored shoe is such a great way to finish your look by making it the exclamation mark to your outfit. Yellow is a great option too because it goes with so much. I’m always down to add a blue shoe to a look but this is a great alternative too.

All of these shoes are from Just Fab.

I hope you’re headed apple picking or doing something very fall today!

The Best You

Hey, hey Happy Monday!

Individuality will always be one of the conditions of real elegance. Read that again. This is exactly why I’m totally in love with this weeks Dior Dictionary Word.

I love fashion so much. And sure I like a good trend but Dior really gets it right by saying that no one should be a slave to trends. I’m a huge advocate of being yourself and having your own style. It’s what separates the sheep from the fashion leaders.

It is so important to walk into a store and know what’s you and what isn’t. Being able to define your style helps with this. For me, I know my style is “Edgy Glam” for the most part. I like to blame that on the Gemini in me. Give me feathers, drama, hats, and all things over the top. But I’m very comfortable in my look and style. Maybe a little less being pregnant. Ha! But still you must own your style an individuality. This truly will help you be the best you. Also, with the biggest season of the year looming it’s a really good time to look at the trends, analyze what you love and don’t love. Will you catch me wearing teeny tiny bags or a quilt ensemble? No.

If you take anything away from todays post it’s to let your freak flag fly!

Be you and own it!

The Color of Happy

Ahhh Yellow…

Perfect for any time of year but I love it for Summer and Fall. It’s a color that had become a recent favorite of mine.

Yellow certainly has become popular in the last couple of seasons but sometimes it can feel like a tricky color to wear. Contrary to what Dior is saying I like the brighter tones even though my hair is light. But he is right there’s a color for everyone and it’s about trial and error. Try on all the yellows and see which you like the best.

One no fail way to wear yellow is to pair is with blue. Sticking to opposite sides of the color wheel will always have you looking good.

Grab a statement piece like my blazer. This will surly be on repeat this fall. Pair it with jeans and a white tee. Again, the jeans will look great because of the blues.

If you live in my neck of the woods it’s a pretty gloomy day after the crazy storms last evening but this is the perfect way to bring some sunshine to a not so sunny day.

Have a great start to your week!
