We apologize for our recent absence from the blogosphere but Thanksgiving had us a bit preoccupied. Suffering from too much stuffing, an anxiety ridden Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale spree, and the constant in and out of certifiably nuts family had us just a wee bit busy. So this blog with my second rendition of fall favorites comes a touch late. I'm sure everyone is probably on to holiday party gear, however if you haven't heard, I DO WHAT I WANT, and these fall favorites I'm going to wear right into the winter season. So shove that in your corn cob pipe and smoke it!! Check out another couple of my Fall Faves...
The trench coat is a huge must of the season and also a great classic staple to have in your closet. Its light enough to wear over a cocktail dress and comfortable to layer for those cooler nights out and about.
I have yet to get the classic and coveted Burberry trench pictured above. Unfortunately, as much as i love the look, fit and would do anything to resemble Kate Moss, I can't quite cough up the dough. Luckily many companies have made similar styles that are far easier on the wallet. I've had my gray trench for a few years now and have worn it casually, formally, and seductively (a trench can be just as sexy as it can be perverse.) I won't burden you all with that latter styling but here is how I've been rocking my trench this fall....
- Trench- Banana Republic similar here
- Sunglasses- Ray Ban find here
- Booties- Givenchy similar here
- Work Tote Bag- Yves Saint Laurent Reversible Tote current tote styles here
WCW Jeanie blogged about affordable sweet sweat style here, highlighting how fitness gear is now also fashionable. Which leads me to my next current fave....STATEMENT LEGGINGS!
Clearly Miranda Kerr has inspired this fall fave for me. If a VS Angel can rock these printed fun spandex well then gosh darnit I can stretch them on and cry softly in a corner. No I kid, I love a fun pair of leggings for fitness and for slumming around town. In lieu of sporting bed head and my husbands sweats to Target on my Saturday morning, a pair of statement leggings make me feel like I've put a little effort in to my early outing. It also appears like I just might hit the gym....
- Leggings- Onzie bunch of fun styles here
- Sunglasses- JCrew here
- Burgundy Sweater- H&M here
- Handbag- Prada Saffiano Lux similar here
- Boots- Frye Anna Boot found here
So that's the last of what I've got for Fall. I won't make any promises but we will have some of our holiday favorite looks coming up soon. Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday and until next time.....I'm OUT!
