Hello readers,
So, I actually shot a few pictures of my outfit earlier this morning but they somehow ended up missing! So I figured, I'd create a board instead as it is night time now and the lighting would be horrible.
Moving on!
Fall is finally here and today was the perfect temperature. My favorite season is fall--especially those days where it is not too hot but not too cold.
The font came out blurry, however I hope you like my OOTD!
I paired the shirt with a gray tank to balance all of the color and print I was wearing. I didn't wear the necklace as a collar, which is what it was sold as, instead as an original necklace. I only buttoned three of the buttons on the denim shirt then rolled the sleeves up to my elbows to really show off the watch. Paired with black lace TOMS because it was the perfect capri and TOMS weather (the lace is pretty much see-through, meaning that your feet will be cold).
I promise to update you all more frequently! Well, that cannot be a promise, but I'll try!
Hope you all are enjoying these last days of September!

Fall 2012 Necessities

Fall is just around the corner. And I'm sure many of you are with me when I say that I wish it would come quicker! Fall is my favorite season with the colorful leaves, the smell of bonfires, hot apple cider and last, but most definitely not least....fall fashion! I absolutely love fall fashion. Warm hoodies, big sweaters, infinity scarves, leggings, skinny jeans in several washes, boots and beanies.
Fall 2012 is rapidly approaching, but what is going to be "in style" this year?
From sweaters in every style.

From the runway to your closet, sweaters of all styles are not only comfy to wear but easy to style. Pair an oversized sweater with leggings and boots and you can match comfort with fashion. Another option--which is on trend this year--is to  pair a collared shirt underneath, letting the collar show.

Next, a piece that has been seen all summer long. The wide, floppy, brim hat. I don't know about you readers, but this is a piece that I think could ultimately end up being a staple piece. I am not one to wear hats but I admire those who do (simply because my head is on the large size!). One of my favorite hats I have seen comes from Forever 21 (pictured below).

Personally, I would take off the buckle (I'm guessing it is only glued on) and keep it simple with the dark red color.

After doing some research (by research I mean picking up Marie Clare's Fall Fashion issue) I came across a trend that I absolutely love: leather. Leather seems to come in and out but I'm hoping it'll stay.  My piece for this trend would be a bomber jacket. I picked one up last fall from Nordstrom (on sale!!) before I headed to college & I ended up wearing it almost daily once fall came around. It was vintage looking, comfy and oh so cute.

One of the last trends that I think are worth knowing is of course denim. Denim comes in all styles & colors nowadays. According to Refinery 29 these styles are going to be must-haves this fall: fall florals,  tapered and baggy, coated denim, polka dot denim, and side panel jeans.
Different ways to wear florals. Grown up & chic dark florals, pastel florals, vibrant red florals.

Tapered & baggy. Your boyfriends jeans refined.

Coated denim. Wearing leather has never been simpler. With coated denim it gives off a shine & gloss looking like leather but has the comfort of jeans.

Retro polka dots. Simple & chic.
Side panel jeans. They elongate the leg and jazz up your outfit.
Which trend will you be wearing this fall?
