The All American Girl
Hello loves I seriously cannot believe that it is almost fall! I swear the summer months zoomed by. However, I have to admit that I have been bit by the fall love bug. There's something about the crisp leaves, darker hues, and brisk air that brings a smile to my face. Summer of course is one of my favorite months but there's something about fall fashion that has a special place in my heart. I know we're heading towards that beautiful time of year so I wanted to list my top three favorite fall wears!
My first being this awesome shirt, skirt, and boots from Forever 21. Fall can also mean going back to school and for all my college followers this outfit is perfect for that first day back to classes. I call it my All American girl look because you see a lot of this style depicted in teen age chick flicks. There's something so comfortable and cute about a button up shirt tucked into a mini skirt. I've never been a huge brown girl, but, for fall it's always fun to bring out the neutral colors and rock them. Of course, being me, I had to pair it with this fun colorful mini skirt because even in the fall you can add pops of color. I am obsessed with these maroon colored boots. They are super comfortable and can be practically worn with everything, jeans, shorts, skirts you name it. I love versatility and you can wear each of these items more than once which is key for when you are going back to school (and have that college budget).
This outfit can also be worn on a fun girls night out. I'd wear this to River North when I am experiencing a new dive bar or viewing live music at Millennium Park. Also, apple picking time is soon approaching! How cute would this outfit be among the trees and beautiful red colored apples?!

Now lets take it back to the basics! Nothing says fall like a nice knit sweater, preferably off the shoulder, some comfortable jeans, and a infinity scarf. Whenever I think of fall I think of sitting in a coffee shop, with a warm cup of coffee, a book in hand, watching as the leaves fall. There's something beautiful about minimalist fashion and I recommend everyone get their scarfs and jeans out anticipating fall's arrival. I love pairing bright colorful scarfs with black, grey, or maroon colored sweaters. Keep the bottoms simple, dark wash jeans and white jeans are always my favorite to wear around this time of year. Now, don't fret, buying new fall clothes can always seem a bit daunting but I'm listing some sites below where you can get those new clothes within a great budget!
The Sweater Dress
Guys, this is my all time favorite thing to wear during the fall. I love how romantic and regal the sweater dress can be. Pairing this off the shoulder dress with some knee high boots is my favorite thing to do. Not only is the sweater dress flattering to all different shapes and sizes, but, paired with the right shoe it can make you look way taller than you actually are! (which is always my mission)
No matter how you look the sweater dress can class you up. I love the fall because you can put your hair in a messy bun, pair it with this outfit combo, wear a maroon colored lip, with no make up, and look as chic as can be. I feel like the fall brings out all the natural colors in one's face, hair, and eyes which allows you to pop, bringing out your natural beauty.
I personally always go for the form fitting sweater dresses because it gives the illusion of some curves especially if you're on the petite side. It can also extenuate for those luscious divas that has an abundance of natural twists and turns to their body.
I am going to list some inexpensive options for you below!
Fall can be the best time for fashion! A lot of the times it's about layering and embracing the neutral colors that you don't get to wear often in the summer and spring. I for one am excited for my scarfs, boots, and leggings. We can also look forward to the colorful changes, the brisk night air, and the hot apple cider. I hope these outfits are getting you in the fall mood, besides, we all cannot help but FALL in love with this beautiful season of change!
Until next time.
