I may or may not have already burned through one of my new fall candles. Call me basic, but pumpkin candles (and pine) are two of my most favorite scents. Can pumpkin be included in a fall trend report? It should be. To me, both pumpkin and pine scents are incredibly soothing although I tend to associate pine with Christmas time more so than the fall.
Supposedly a “cold” front is moving through the DFW area at the end of this week with highs in the *gasp* 80’s vs today’s 104. I CANNOT wait for a reprieve from this insipid heat.
So .. until the weather becomes more consistently agreeable, you can find me yearning for fall fashion and the ability to wear it without drenching oneself in sweat.
Blazer season and all things tweedy and plaid-like has arrived. Oversized blazers are a great wear to dabble into menswear inspired wardrobes without getting too aggressive and boxy. Whether you’re a leggings lady or some tattered jeans, this is my favorite thing to throw on and look like you’ve got your life together. Blazers always add an air of sophistication, even if my hair is in a wretched state per usual. Of note, Lionness is one of my favorite brands for blazers that are all less than $100!
Square Toed Heels
Yes, I’m a self-admitted shoe addict – as evidenced by my enormous shoe wall. A good statement shoe never goes out of style and I’ve found some that are less than $50, $100, and then a little pricier. I ordered these black heels from Zara that are ADORABLE perfect for all fall fashion.
I actually don’t know the “fashion” term for these, but compared to my enormous bags I love so much (just splurged on this beauty because it’s iconic) – these are tiny. I’m also very much into the chain link strap trend. It’s cute, it’s edgy, and it’s strong – aka my version of feminine these days. I’m also a big fan of Studio 33 – we made friends in the spring and I’m just obsessed with everyone on their team.
This isn’t specifically a fall trend per se, but they’re definitely more suited to the weather. They also border on military-inspired fashion and are incredibly cute with combat boots or a bootie in general. Style it with a scarf, a hat, a sneaker, a graphic tee – whatever accessory you adore – there is no wrong here.
Solid Gold, Baby
I guess gold is once more a thing. I definitely sway back and forth on gold jewelry – but I’m down for some of these chunky pieces. What’s your take?
