My Top 10 Trends For Fall

Almost everything is under $100!

1. Ponchos

Limited  /  Express  /  Nordstrom
Old Navy  /  Ann Taylor  /  Macy's

I'm re-wearing the ponchos I've had for ages + I've got major shopping fever for all the cute options available this year.

2. Suede

H&M  /  Nasty Gal  /  New York & Co.
Forever 21  /  Vince Camuto

I have the boots in gray, and I'd love a suede jacket this year.

3. Wool Hats

Banana Republic  /  H&M
Vince Camuto  /  ASOS

I have three wool hats in three colors (from 1-3 years ago) that I'm wearing on repeat.

4. That 70's Dress

H&M  /  H&M  /  ASOS
Express  /  Express  /  LOFT

I ordered #2 and #3. I especially love the dresses with sleeves.

5. Tie Neck Blouse

Express  /  New York & Co.
Urban Outfitters  /  Express

I have a tie neck blouse (similar to #1) that's currently on repeat in my closet.

6. Fringe

Express  /  Express  /  Dillard's
Express  /  Express

I'm wearing my fringe clutch from last year, plus sale stalking this Express fringe skirt

7. Over the Knee Boots

Forever 21  /  Marc Fisher  /  Sole Society  /  Ivanka Trump

I'm planning to order #2 asap, and I ordered these from New York & Co. I have trouble finding boots that aren't huge on my calves so hopefully they work in person.

8. Sherpa & Shearling

Express  /  Express
Banana Republic  /  JCPenney

Aka anything fuzzy. I bought vest #4, and vest #2 is on my wish list.

9. Button Front Skirts

H&M  /  H&M  /  H&M

I own #1 and #3.

10. Plaid

Express  /  Banana Republic  /  American Eagle
Banana Republic  /  Kohl's

I've added a couple plaid scarves to my closet recently. 

Which fall trends are YOUR favorite?

Today's Everyday Fashion: Faux or Real

I was dying over this cobalt jacket in a previous post, so I bit the bullet and ordered it! In person, I've got mixed feelings. I am a huge genuine leather fan so I'm not sure about the faux leather. I don't think I would invest a couple hundred bucks on a blue genuine leather jacket though... so basically I'm stuck. When I find myself in these situations I ask questions like these: Will I wear this jacket more (or ever) instead of my current favorite leather jackets (black and cognac)? Out of all my jacket options to buy this fall, is this where I want to spend my budget? For my upcoming cold-weather trips, do I love this jacket enough for it to be the one thing I pack in a carry on? The jury is still out...

Today's Everyday Fashion: Tweed Skirt

Inspiration: SOle Society

Inspiration: SOle Society

Gray sweater, tweed skirt, plaid scarf, wool hat

This tweed skirt is still going strong in my closet; it's the third fall/winter in a row that it's been one of my favorites! Neutrals that have a little extra something - like the marled color and the tweed texture of this skirt - really add some pizazz to an outfit. It's a great staple that's neutral enough to repeat often, while also being detailed enough to make it a star on it's own. It's the best of both worlds.

ps. If you're in the Wichita area, come check out the beauty/hair/style event I'm speaking at this Saturday at the Wichita Art Museum - it's open to the public!
