Favorite Fall Fashions

I love fall fashion.  The thought of boots and scarves, dresses and tights, jeans and jackets, etc., makes me one happy girl.  Add to that a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, and I'm practically giddy.  I thought I'd show you some goodies I've recently added to my closet. And I think it goes without saying that I am no fashion expert.  Let's be honest.  As I type, I am wearing plaid pajama pants.  At 1:00 in the afternoon.  For shame.

To be honest, I didn't realize how much shopping (mostly online - gets me in trouble every time!) I've done lately until I started writing this post.  Oopsies.  Hubs, I advise you to stop reading now.  Loves you. ;-)

The bootie.  Love these, despite the trendy little 20-something Nordstrom employee who sold them to me sharing that her mother has the same pair.  Neat, huh?

The chambray shirt.  I have a chambray shirt that I wear all the time (mostly with colored jeans as pictured), so when I saw this, I had to scoop it up.  I love the polka dots!

The Boyfriend Khakis.  I can't tell you how long it's been since I've bought a pair of khakis.  A long time, my friends.  I will admit that my mom uniform is made up mostly of workout clothes, so I figured it would be nice to add something casual but decent to the mix other than my standard jeans.  I ordered these in teal, but my first choices, green and burgundy, were sold out in my size.  They were delivered today, and I actually really like the color.  Love the fit.  They are great to pair with heels to dress them up, or with flats to keep it casual.

The dress.  I gotta admit, I wasn't sure how I felt about this dress, but I decided to give it a try.  I'm so glad I did.  I really like it.  It's cute and comfortable.  I like that I can wear it now with flats or sandals and with knee boots when the weather gets cooler.  I don't really like it paired with booties as shown.

The scarf.  I love a good scarf.  I mean, who doesn't??  It can instantly change and entire outfit.  I'm excited to add this one to my growing collection.

The striped shirt.  This is not a shirt I would typically purchase.  For teaching, yes.  But for staying at home with my girls, it seems a little too dressy.  But....I've seen it on some of my favorite fashion blogs lately, and I love how they have rolled up the sleeves, paired with shorts, colored jeans, bright jewelry, etc.  Definitely more suitable for this season of my life.  It's a stretch from my normal mom uni, but I'm gonna give it a go.

The cords.  I've been wanting some for a while now, and I finally found a fit and color that I love at Jcrew.  These are from their regular website, but I found them at a factory store on sale.  You're welcome, hubs. ;-)
Now all I need is for this Texas weather to cooperate so I can actually wear some of this stuff!


  1. I read it all - and I am going to update the budget now.
