I know Labor Day has passed but do not put away your white jeans just yet!
I love my white jeans allll winter.
With my riding boots. With big slouchy sweaters. With a structured tweed blazer and a great scarf.
My other fall and winter must haves….
Winter white slacks, wool coat and pencil skirts with opaque tights.
Ok, sooooo – I was asked to speak to a women’s organization about Fall Trends.
I am very excited about it. I do two things very well.
2. Talk about Clothes/Shopping/Trends
So I hope that I am not spoiling the discussion but I started putting my ideas together.
This may be a two or three blog process but here is a start to fall trends.
So you know, I don’t always like ALL of the trends out there.
These are the trends that I can see easily fitting into my wardrobe as well as my friends and clients wardrobes.
Fall Trends to Buy….
1. LEATHER – I keep repeating myself but this may be my fav.
Leather leggings, Leather trimmed blazer, Leather skirt.
“The more appealing woman has a bit of an edge to her that makes her alluring.”
2. Dresses/Suits – Yes, the Mad Men look is still in.
I love a form fitting dress or a beautifully tailored suit with sheer hose and a pair of super high heels.
A great addition to your work wardrobe or for all my ladies who lunch.
Prim Appeal with an Urban Edge.
3. Peplum – I love anything with a peplum.
I think they hide a multitude of flaws.
4. Military Jackets – Anything double breasted.
This will look great with jeans for the weekend or dressed with a great pair of slacks for work.
I love this Free People Military Jacket- it hits on all of the trends double breasted, peplums, and cable knit
I especially like anything army green. It is one of my favorite colors to wear.
5. Western Wear – Anything with suede, shearling or denim.
This is definitely an easy trend. I love this denim shirt from j.crew. It would look great with the leather skirt or leather leggings.
Or a great boucle skirt for casual Friday.
These booties are really cute. Be careful with this trend.
My suggestion is unless you are 6 feet tall with skinny skinny long legs buy them a little more narrow at the top so your skinny jeans with lay just over the top of them. If they are wider at the top and you tuck your jeans into them they will make your legs look shorter and stumpier.
And noooooone wants this!
Happy Shopping, I’ll be back with more fall trends shortly!
We Shopped til we Dropped
and Ate til We Popped!
If Savannah has two things,
it is great shopping and even better eating.
Ok, ok – we did some sightseeing along the way.
My daughter and I headed to Savannah for an awesome mother/daughter getaway with friends.
Sad to say, I had never been to Savannah even though I grew up just a couple of hours away.
It was a wonderful trip and I’m already looking forward to going back.
Saturday, we hit the ground running with breakfast at a lovely coffee shop right around the corner of our hotel, wish I could remember the name. Oops.
115 West Broughton Street
We met the owner and she was lovely. I’m looking forward to running into her at Coterie in September.
I found an awesome BB Dakota Blazer with a leather lapel there.
Had to buy, a no brainer for sure.
One of my big finds there were these Tibetan Prayer Beads.
I love the colors and I need all the prayer I can get!
Some other lines they carry are TIBI, Elizabeth and James, Parker, Vince and Joie
22 W. Broughton Street
This is a beautiful store with some great designer pieces
…my daughter loved everything there. Can you tell?
The Paris Market
Very cute store! Wanted to spend more time there for sure.
We stopped for lunch at Paula Deen’s
The Lady and Sons.
I was skeptical but I’m tellin’ ya- it was delicious!
I had the crab soup and a pimento cheese sandwich. It was delicious. I had to roll myself out of there.
Did I mention it was delicious. Ate myself sick.
Sunday, we woke up and the girls wanted to do a little more shopping before heading back.
We had been eyeing this really cute store so we could not leave without checking it out…
Beautiful store with a very cool feel. Not like your average Buckhead store which was refreshing.
They carried some lines that I am interested in checking out as well as some of my fav designers such as Annie Griffin, Beth Bowley and Francis.
Our Sunday lunch spot.
Fabulous in every way! Definitely a highlight of the trip.
Gryphon is across the street from SCAD and is actually run by SCAD. The restaurant is in an old pharmacy. They still have all of the original cabinets and tables and trim. It is stunning.
If you go you must order the crepes. Our girls devoured them!
Great trip, great getaway, great company.
Future Fashionistas for sure!
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve not applied for a job or not submitted a painting to a gallery.
I am also afraid of launching the new website. Will it be successful, will it succeed?So how does this pertain to fashion?
Be fearless. Wear what makes you happy. I can’t tell you how many phone calls I get each week about what to wear- what shoes, what necklace, what earrings?
What cocktail dress, what type of jeans, pumps, bra, you name it.
Go for it, who cares!
