Happy Monday friends!
Fall is my favorite fashion season, as it is for most based off conversations I've had with many of you! Understandably so, as it's much more fun and exciting, creatively speaking, as you can really explore different color and texture combinations you wouldn't otherwise be able to (at least comfortably, lol) throughout the year. When we think of fall, we typically think of rich and saturated jewel tones, in addition to various shades of orange and yellow, inspired by foliage. However, green can still be embraced though it may not necessarily scream fall. I love the look of sage green in particular paired with a more faded, stone grey shade, both of which I'm wearing today. I think the combination makes for a great transition from a warmer season to a cooler one, especially since both have cool undertones.

Happy Monday friends!
One of my favorite fall/winter functional accessories is a blanket scarf! I've created a bit of a collection throughout the years and whenever I'm stumped with what to wear, I'll typically throw one on. They're so good to wear with a turtleneck and jeans or even with a dress. I also love that they're versatile in the ways they can be worn. You can wear them looped around your neck or as a poncho. As you can see, the possibilities are endless and now that our lives are a bit more leisurely in routine, even when working from home, they're, I feel, all the more essential. If you're the only one in the house who's cold and therefore can't turn on the heat, throw one on. Going for a quick errand run, throw one on.

Happy Friday beauties!
Animal prints are trending big time this fall/winter and what I love is that it's not only leopard print we're seeing. Don't get me wrong, you all know I love leopard print. I mean, I wore a leopard printed midi skirt on Monday! It's just nice to see variation and I love that designers are having fun with the animal kingdom. We're seeing snakeskin taking a close lead and zebra and cow hide, too. What I've learned in all the years I've blogged and paid close attention to trends, when something is trending, we see variations and I love having selections to choose from that offer versatility! Who doesn't, right?!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
Aside from leggings, jeans are the most versatile and absolute wardrobe staple every woman must own. I don't use bold letters often, which proves how much of an essential they are, lol! What's awesome is that these days there are so many different styles to choose from, that will help enforce your personal style or allow for you to have more fun and versatility when creating your daily outfits. The mom jean is one of the styles we've seen gain popularity over the past few years and understandably so, they're more relaxed in their aesthetic than nearly any other style, yet they can easily be dressed up. Though they're quite popular, they may cause the curvier woman to shake her head, NO! Mainly because the fit is notably tighter in the hip and thigh regions, which can pose a challenge or concern for one who's curvy in those areas. I'm here today to give you some tips on pulling them off successfully if that's you!

I'm sure many of you have heard that midi skirts are the way to go come fall and that they're chic and versatile, too. While I do agree with all of those claims, I will say that a basic midi skirt isn't always flattering for all body shapes. When you're bottom curvy, a satin or basic midi style can cling and essentially not flatter at all. I'm rolling my eyes at you hip dips!
