Fall Back in Style

As we are settling down from living our best lives this summer, and we start gearing up for fall and all its excitement. Fall brings back to school for children, football games with our spouses and ladies night with our girls. We as women have a lot of going on. This is the time we expect the weather to change from sunny day to cooler nights. With our weather being bipolar and all the events we have to tackle throughout the day, who has time to think about their outfit. We need to look the part no matter where we are going. We need to be able to transition our summer wear for those sunny days into a chic fall look for those cooler nights.
Ladies we can never go wrong with a great pair of jeans. I mean those jeans that hug our curves, hold everything in place and you feel confident in them. Now because we are talking about wearable fashion in a transitioning season, your top is very important. So let’s grab those summer tops but look for them in warmer colors like olive green, darker orange, even mustard yellow. If you’re in Texas or warmer states a lightweight shirt is just fine like a T-shirt or tank, if you’re in a climate that actually gets cold, go for a longer sleeve top. Let’s not forget those add-ons also known as jackets, blazers, and cardigans. This is why I love the fall, you can never go wrong with a fire add-on piece. Here I decided to add this military army jacket which happens to be one of my favorites. I purchased this jacket from a local theft store. It functions well, not too bulky or heavy and if you fold the sleeves into a cuff it adds a nice chic look.
