Some of my Fall obsessions include new clothes for my wardrobe! After all, Fall weather is sweater weather! Here are some items I am currently crushing on!
So, I am a little obsessed with J.Crew Factory store! They were having good Labor Day sales, what can I say. I knew what I was looking for and they happened to have it. These wine colored tights will be great dressed up with a black cocktail dress and heels or even dressed down with boots and sweatshirt dress. I have a very thin cheetah belt similar to this, but I loved this one because it is much thicker. And I DO wear my cheetah belt a lot! It dresses up a simple black outfit for work or even a simple plaid shirt like shown. The sweater is perfect for layering! It is a light-weight sweater with 3/4 sleeves so it will look great even over this new button-up! This washed shirt has already been a good transition piece with shorts, with jeans, or under a sweater for colder winter days to come.
Which brings up another point! Do you call a collared shirt a "button-up" like I do? Or do you call it a "button-down?" Random question, I know, but I've always just called it a "button-up" and some people think I'm crazy for it!
Leather: I am noticing a lot of leather accents and details on everything from cocktail dresses, t-shirts, and pants. I am loving this simple shirt from Ann Taylor with just the right amount of leather on the sleeves and on the front pocket. Let's not get crazy with the leather, though. I am not trying to look like a biker babe!
Leopard/Cheetah: I have always loved a touch of leopard or cheetah in my wardrobe. Obviously, I just bought my second leopard belt and have some leopard flats already. But those flats have been worn so many times they are falling apart. It is time for a new pair. These are Steve Madden from DSW. I love that they are a more subtle cheetah print.
Green Canvas: This warm green shade is great for Fall. I have some winter leggings in this color that I love! But I am really wanting a canvas jacket like this one from Old Navy and some green canvas pants. Any kind of transitional piece that I can wear on casual work days, dress it up, or wear on the weekends are perfect for my wardrobe. These pants are versatile enough for any occasion.
Burgundy: If you haven't noticed this burgundy/maroon/dark purple trend this Fall in fashion then you are living under a rock!! Or just haven't been shopping yet!! Seriously, it is everywhere and I LOVE it!!! I have the wine colored tights and the sweater for layering but I just think you can never have enough of this color. Fall -- into Christmas season -- add some sparkle and these pants would be perfect for a casual New Year's Eve night. They work for Fall and Winter so they are a must-have! Oh, and I also just bought Revlon's Black Cherry lipstick in this color! I am not a lipstick person normally, but I might be now! :)
Top Knots: My hair is finally growing out and getting long enough for a knot! Maybe not quite a top knot but a low bun is a start!
