Velvet - it's luxe, rich and going to be everywhere this fall. Blame the 90s revival (remember CRUSHED velvet) but you didn't think chokers and slip dresses with t-shirts underneath were going to come back around and not velvet, did you?!
Neck candy - ...speaking of chokers (shop chokers HERE)....You pretty much can't escape covering your neck this fall. Chokers, turtlenecks, scarves! There's something so very naughty flight attendant about it and I personally LOVE it.
Color - as much as I love some monochromatic outfitting, I'm pretty excited for color to re-enter my closet. Cheerful blues and pinks are the sweetheart of the fall season, which is a nice departure from the usual fall tones we see (shop pink coats HERE).
Fall Floral - again, it's time to inject some much needed pattern into my life. I have the basics and essentials--now I need the showstoppers. Rebecca Taylor (shop RT fall HERE), ALC and Suno are all doing florals right this fall (shop Suno HERE).
Dramatic sleeves - maybe it's one-sleeve, maybe it's the cold shoulder, maybe it's the bell sleeve (shop bell sleeves HERE); whatever it is, designers are bringing attention to your arms, whether you like it or not.
Mid-calf boots - We all have the OTK boots (and we love them--shop OTK boots HERE) and more booties than we can handle, but remember mid-calf boots? Well, if you don't, they're back and a new silhouette to add to your arsenal. If you're feeling really sassy, wear them with some cropped flare jeans.
What are you looking forward to this fall?

It's the final countdown, everyone. I have just over a month left to go in this pregnancy and I think it just hit me that I'm having another baby. With your second, you feel like a pro (hint: you're not) BUT you've already been through all the 'firsts.' Throw in the fact that this is another boy, I actually haven't bought a thing. I should probably get his room ready..
And don't feel bad for little guy #2. I was the FOURTH child so my whole life was a hand-me-down.

Meeting them was a bit anticlimactic; I had a lot more fun with the rest of the people backstage and my sisters and friend. They were super dry (maybe it was their British demeanor) and surprisingly they complained about how much they hated Detroit and its industrial feel; Chris Martin barely came out from backstage. TL;DR version: I still like Coldplay even though they don't like the Midwest and Chris Martin is (has always been?) a diva.

Phase out florals for fall? Never! There's nothing that makes more sense to me than 'autumn-izing' (yes, I just made up that word) a summer print. Dresses like this, from Nordstrom, are easy enough to wear now when it's 90 degrees outside and again to a fall wedding a few months down the road. If I'm feeling sassy, I might even pair this with a light pink leather jacket + ankle boots (with a BOW) I've been eyeing from Nordstrom.
I mentioned that I'm loving patterns and feminine silhouettes again, like this ruffled skirt from Nordstrom; maybe it's the growing bump thats causing the change or heart--or maybe I'm sick of monochromatic outfits. Or maybe I'm sick of pants? Well, whatever the case, my closet will probably have a little more personality this fall.

Fall is coming but I will hold onto white dresses as long as I possibly can. You'll have to pry them out of my dead, lifeless hands! Ok, fine, I'm being dramatic but there's just nothing as crisp and chic as a little, white dress. So, come at me fall; you can take me down while wearing a white dress.
(This dress was last seen HERE.)

And don't worry, I'm definitely guilty of buying fall pieces early on with no intention of wearing them for a good month; I HAVE already bought a pair of over-the-knee boots for winter (hey, they might sell out and I really want them). Hey, I'm human, after all.
