No need to adjust your computer screen. Yes, I am wearing white after Labor Day. As you know, wearing white (specifically white pants) during this time of year is considered a huge fashion faux-pas. I am not sure of the rule’s origin however I do know that I am not following it. Fashion is a form of self expression therefore you should determine how to express yourself. Plus, I’ve never been a fan of being told what I can’t wear. And while I am all for following certain fashion guidelines this rule was made to be broken.

My Fall Fashion Must Haves

Fall is here again (Yay!). Like many people, I am in love with fall fashion. And I couldn’t let old man winter get here before I tell you about my must have clothing pieces. I will be featuring some of my favorite outfits in the coming weeks. Until then, below are my fall  fashion haves must haves. What would you add to the list?

  1. Leather/Faux Leather Jackets- Leather jackets are an essential part of everyone’s closet. I love how they instantly add edge to boring outfits.
  2. Chunky sweaters- Sweaters are a great way to keep warm in the cooler months.  However if you aren’t careful, they can cause you to look frumpy. I’ve discovered that the key is creating the correct proportions. Pairing chunky sweaters with form fitting bottoms helps your outfit to look more balanced.
  3. Coats/Cardigans/Dusters- As a Florida native, I never had an appreciation for coats. I didn’t invest a lot of time/money into them because I didn’t have a real need to. I have become obsessed with them recently. I think the neutrals are a must- black, brown, khaki, etc. However it is always fun to experiment with bold colors such as red, pastels, etc.
  4.  Totes- Totes are great year round however I find them to be quite handy during the cooler months. They allow enough space to carry bulkier items such as scarves, sweaters, hats, etc.
  5. Plaid- Plaid is a classic print that just screams fall. I love how versatile they are. You can wear them with jeans, skirts, leggings, etc.
  6. Loafers- These are great for those casual fall days.
  7. Hats- Im not typically a hat girl however I find them to be quite chic during fall. They are great because they help disguise a bad hair day and while keeping you warm. I like just about all styles including floppies, bowlers, fedoras, beanies, etc.
  8. Scarves- Scarves are an easy way to look chic while keeping warm. Everyone should have a few cozy scarves in their closet.
  9. Boots and booties- These are a must for this season. I love how versatile they are. They can be worn with pants, dresses, skirts, etc.
  10. Chambray shirts- Chambray tops are staples for all seasons however they look especially great with fall staples such as leggings, leather jackets, plaid tops, etc.

Fall Faves: Nail Polishes

Happy Fall, y’all! It is no secret, fall is my favorite season. I love almost everything about this time of the year (the weather, fashion, scents, etc.). I am always so inspired by all of the changes this time of the year brings.

So… I decided to start a new series (Fall Faves) explaining some of my favorite items for fall. First up are nail polishes. Let me know what your favorites are.

essie- Big Spender. This is described as a lush red-violet cream color. I am not sure what that means but what I do know is this color is simply gorgeous!

Sinful Colors- Nirvana. Anyone that knows me know that I love neutrals. I really couldn’t think of a more fitting name for this polish. It’s is simply nirvana.

Revlon-Espresso. This is the quintessential brown color. It truly is a rich espresso color that will compliment women of any color.

Sinful Colors-Midnight Blue. I love this color! I am a little biased though (blue is my favorite color). This is a deep royal/ midnight blue. It’s simply beautiful.

OPI- Give Me Moor!. This color is very vampy eggplant color. It is from the 2009 Espana collection.

Any black nail polish. Black nail polishes are always in (in my opinion). There is something very edgy yet chic about black nail polish.

New In

Fall is my favorite time of the year! There is something about this time of the year that energizes me. As a child I loved starting the new school year in September. For me it symbolized a new beginning. One of my favorite things to do was to shop and prepare for the year. I guess I carried that into adulthood. Here are some of things that I have purchased over the past few weeks to prepare for fall.
