Fall is officially in the air. Summer has had it's final curtain call for the year. The nights are cooler, the sun is starting to go down earlier, and pumpkin ales are on draft at the bar. Now it's not full blown fall yet, but it is that time to start transitioning into fall fashions. When I lived in Florida we really didn't have a fall season, so for the last two years it's been fun learning to dress seasonally. One of my favorite fall trends is over the knee socks. It's not warm enough to totally wear shorts, but it's not cool enough for pants during the day either. Over the knee socks are great for transitioning between seasons.
Another fall trend favorite is of course, light layering. I love layering light pieces, especially slips. Over the years I have acquired an impressive collection of vintage slips and am always trying to incorporate them into my daily wear. I typically wear them around the house and in my room lounging away. If you're going to wear a slip out of the house, you have to layer it with other pieces. Some examples would be a knitted crop top, a sheer blouse, or even just a simple cardigan. I opted to go with my tan lace tank top since it's still really nice out and not too cool.
I never wear heels in the city anymore, too much walking around. Thankfully in this scenario I was just around the corner from my house so the walk wasn't bad at all. The shoes I'm wearing, are my staple black pumps. I got them at Forever21 years ago and they pretty much go with everything. The idea of wearing all back, but with different textures is so appealing to me. For example, a black denim skirt, with liquid leggings, and patten leather shoes and purse. The hat box, I've had for about a year now. One of my favorite finds at Boomeranges, it was $4! I needed something to carry, and the hat box complimented my shoes perfectly.
Ha! Hows that for a blog post! I feel like I don't talk about my favorite trends enough. I would like to try to incorporate that into posts more often. Is there anything as a reader you want to know more about on the blog? What are some of your favorite fall trends?
