Hi guys! I know it’s been a while since my last post and I apologize! Work has been insane these past couple of weeks. For those of you who don’t know, I am a Toy Buyer for a start-up online children’s marketplace and well, this is the busiest time of year for me. We are quickly approaching the holiday season and I have been working tirelessly to on-board new brands and load new products so we are set up for success! We’ve wrapped up our holiday gift guide and soon we will start preparing for our holiday pop-up. It’s honestly non-stop madness until the day after Christmas!
I can’t believe we’ve reached the end of September! Once summer finishes, I feel like the last four months are just a blur because they just fly by and before you know it, we’re in a new year. Aside from May, September is another one of my favorite months. I used to look forward to back-to-school shopping, for clothes, obviously and school supplies. I was all about my Lisa Frank and Five Star! I also used to look forward to the season change. Fall has always been my favorite season. Summer is great until it gets really humid and you sweat no matter what you wear outside. As much as I love warm weather, I truly love wearing jackets, knit sweaters and booties!
There’s a lot of great fall trends this year but I narrowed this post down to just my favorites, that I’m also wearing above! These are my three favorite fall trends:
Animal Prints: Leopard and Snakeskin are the must have prints this season. Animal prints are so fun because they are offered in many variations and can be worn so many ways. Leopard print has always been a favorite of mine and I’m always glad when it’s back on trend. Leopard is such a staple and has become a neutral, in my opinion. It’s easy to match with existing styles and colors already in your closet, as is Snakeskin. I have my eyes on a couple of snakeskin pieces and can’t wait to share the looks with you!
I love the versatility of this Who What Wear Collection skirt. I paired it with booties and a sweater but could also wear this skirt with a graphic tee and sneakers. The outfit opportunities are endless! This won’t be the last time you see me in this skirt or in animal print this season!
Neons: Funny story about this sweater. My mom asked ordered it for my sister as a Christmas gift. It got lost in transit, so J. Crew shipped out a replacement with next day delivery. UPS knocks on my door the next day, with not one, but two J. Crew packages. The first sweater that was declared lost somehow made its way to my apt along with the replacement sweater. So my sister and I unintentionally got matching sweaters, not knowing that neon would be on trend this year. Now I regret not getting this sweater in neon green as well!
Fall usually calls for for neutrals and darker hues but bolder colors are definitely sticking around this season. I love colors as much as I love neutrals, so I am ready to welcome this trend with open arms! Pairing a neon item with a print, like I did above or with a darker hue is the perfect way to make a bold statement.
Transparent Bags: I wrote a post not too long ago about Transparent Bags here. It was one of my favorite spring trends and I’m so happy to see that they are back for another season. It’s a fun trend that allows you to be creative with what goes in your bag while making it easy to find things in your bag! I’ve worn this crossbody multiple times and am ready to buy another new clear bag! I have been eyeing a Staud Shirley bag for a while and maybe one will make it into my closet soon. 🙂
