Fall Fashion

Fall is in the air. Or not. But we want it to be, right? I mean it’s September and all. To be honest, I don’t love fall because it means winter is coming. However, after the hot summer it is nice to experience the cooler air. Plus, I love the fall colors, the crunching of the leaves (outside only, please!), going to the pumpkin patch, enjoying a warm drink, and of course, fall fashion. I have been trying to come up with ways to turn my summer clothes into fall items, and it seems all I have to do is add a jean jacket or chambray shirt (oh ok, or a cardi) and boots and I’ll be good to go!

On this one I’d add a skirt over the leggings.

I just bought a pair of tall brown boots! I got them at Kohl’s, in the kids’ section. Don’t laugh. I recently discovered that I can wear a kids’ size 5 – it is just about the same as a women’s 7. Since I’m not tall, I figured the kids’ size wouldn’t come up too high on my leg. And it saves money!

I knit this boot cuff! (Only finished one so far). I’m thinking it will be perfect when it does get cold out!

My game plan for fall is layers, even though I know layers don’t look the way they’re supposed to on me.

Also, fall colors.

Oh I love layering in the fall and loved all your suggestions, especially that last one with the black legging and jean shirt. And I love my high brown boots, too. They truly go with so much during this time of the year!! )

My sister can shop in the kids' shoe section! She wears size 5 1/2, I believe. She loves it.
I don't love fall, but only because of the winter thing. When you take spring and fall as separate things, they're so wonderful. However, they both are so short and they melt right into their more severe counterparts.
I love the look of the denim shirt over black leggings. I have that but I don't have brown boots or a cute scarf. Boo!

I LOVE fall fashion! There's nothing like layers, leggings, and boots. :)

I wear kid's sneakers too! LOL I suck at Fall fashion.. I guess it has to do with growing up in the south. I was actually looking at boots this weekend at Kohl's but I won't be needing them for the next few years, so I skipped buying them. Very cute boot cuff!

Shaindy @ Happily Hectic said...

I can totally relate to your layering issue :) I love fall fashion, but with all the hot weather where I am, I'm wondering if/when I'll be able to wear any of it!

That is brilliant! I have never thought about that. I am a womens 7 so that would be perfect!

I cannot wait for boots and sweaters! We're going from the 90s down to the 60s by this evening and I am so incredibly excited I cannot even begin to express :-)

I am on a mission to get cute boots this year (without going bankrupt!)

I love that third dress - and I am a layer-er! I always have a tank-top under a v-neck shirt. I lean over small children all day and don't want anyone getting a free look lol

I'm definitely embracing the layer look for fall.
I want to get into the short dress and boots look too. Haven't done that since college and it's time!

The layer look doesn't always work for me either. I'm jealous you can shop in the kids shoes! I am a size 11. I hate shoe shopping.

Imminent love with the turbulence color.

Busty girl here so I can relate to the layering issues. I would like to get a casual every day boot but haven't found one I love. That's pretty awesome you can shop in the kids section!

Kera @ Nugget On A Budget said...

I'm totally in love with all of those outfits, especially the first one! And boots...that is probably my favorite fall staple. I think we have the same fashion style :)
