Fall Clothing

Invested in Fur

Fur vests are one of my go to looks for fall. If it’s real or fake I love the way it finishes off an outfit. It not only helps to add a layer of warmth but also makes simple outfits more exciting. Wearing black or camel sweaters underneath fur vests can help to bring out the natural tones within the fur.

Take it to the Trenches

A trench coat is an iconic piece of clothing that never goes out of style. It’s versatile and can be worn with a formal outfit to work or for a causal day of shopping. The standard khaki color is the perfect neutral to go with any color worn underneath. It’s great to wear during the changing seasons. This outfit is perfect for the fall weather with a light weight trench, black pants and high boots.

Pink Me Up

Fall fashion means bold colors and popped colors in my world. Pairing shorts with a button down or longer top in the fall helps to extend the life of your shorts. These shorts are perfect for a fall day with their bold color and scalloped edges. A heavier button down or sweater would help this outfit last all day from the morning to the cooler night. It’s also an outfit that can seamlessly transition from day to night if you are going from a brunch to dinner during the weekend.

Savor Summer

Today was the first day I wore a true “fall” outfit. Boston had a bite to the air and I need to cover up a little more. I mixed in some darker colors and heavier fabrics. While I love that first fall outfit I’m still holding out on packing away my shorts as long as possible. There’s something about shorts and a tank top that I can’t help but love anytime of the year. The thought of endless summer is what inspired this outfit.

Back to School Sales are Here!

Be still my shopaholic heart! Back to school shopping sales are popping up all over the place. I may no longer be in school but there’s something about the start of the school year that gets me excited. These days it’s the generous sales!

Many department stores and boutiques bring down their prices to attract the rush for fall clothing and school supplies. These are great for families because stocking up for a new year can get pricy. On average, families will spend more than $660 on back-to-school shopping according to the National Retail Federation’s annual survey. It’s also a great time to give back with backpack drives and donations.
