Leather shorts are a fun way to incorporate leather into warmer Fall days and to extend short-wearing season into Fall/Winter months.

This is a hot trend this season with good reason! Leather shorts can be worn so many ways :: with heels, flats, booties, tall boots; with barelegs, tights and  knee-high socks; and with just about any type of top from a relaxed tee to a blouse or button-down to a sweater or jacket.

Here’s how I wore my leather shorts ::

Hats can be intimidating.  I mean, tossing on a baseball hat is no big deal, but when it comes to an actual FEDORA?

Unless you’re a pop singer from the early 90’s, you might be a little scared.

But hats are having a MOMENT. And they can be amazing.  Because A) you don’t have to fix your hair.  And B) YOU DON’T HAVE TO FIX YOUR HAIR.

So, because I love y’all, I’m going to do a little demo I like to call “How to Wear a Hat…Without Looking Like a Tool.”

DO:

Keep it simple.  Casual.  Straightforward. In other words, wear neutrals and DON’T BE CRAZY.

OH, what’s that? Me and my fedora just need to look over here for a second.

You might feel a need to throw some fringe booties on. And that is okay. FRINGE IS ALWAYS OKAY.

There are few things I love wearing more during Fall than a flowy dress and cowboy boots. This “Where I Belong Dress” from Red Dress Boutique is the perfect, easy-to-wear whimsical dress, perfect for crisp Fall days and also ideal for wear Spring into early Summer.

Remember this post?  It was my polite nod to mother nature giving her a hall pass for the warmer temps even though I couldn’t wait to wear some of my new fall purchases.

Well…that was over a month ago.  My politeness is now turning a tad bitter and I’m kind of ready to stick it to the old broad and tell her to get it together.  I keep seeing all these fabulous scarves, sweaters, jeans, and booties, but I break out in a sweat with the thought of adding on any layers.

So what do us gals do now?

We still wear dresses, that’s what we do.  The shirtdress is actually the perfect casual weekday to weekend dress that is not only comfortable, but versatile.  Wear with a pair of booties now and throw on with tall boots and a jacket later for cooler temps.

I love the bold colors and texture of this sixties-inspired crochet patchwork dress {the fact that it’s currently 50% off is pretty nice, too!}. It’s a unique Fall dress, perfect for pairing with over-the-knee boots, one of my favorite trends this season.

A little fall outfit inspiration for your Wednesday…

Who doesn’t love a good deal?! I thought it would be fun to highlight a few “under $35″ pieces that I have been wearing on repeat lately, plus a couple other not-to-miss fall steals. Everything listed is under $35 {most under $30} and comes highly recommended as a great buy for the price!

Forver 21 Houndstooth Shift Dress, $19.90.

This Forever 21 Houndstooth Shift Dress is one of the cutest dresses I’ve found this season, and a total bargain buy. It’s perfect worn bare-legged with boots and booties or over leggings and tights, as well.

Old Navy Chambray Shirt, $22.

This $22 Old Navy button-down is my favorite chambray shirt of the season. I have several other more expensive chambray shirts and the weight and comfort of this one exceeds them all! It’s perfect for year-round wear.

Old Navy Bucket Bag, $29.94.

You’ve seen me carry this Old Navy bucket bag on several posts recently. I’m a huge fan of its clean lines and ease of carrying. And it truly looks like a much more expensive handbag!

In celebration of it finally feeling a bit like Fall {at least here in the Southeast}, I thought it would be fun to share five of my current Fall favorites wardrobe “go-tos,”  all incorporated into one outfit.

I’ve been on the hunt the past few seasons for the perfect leather jacket. One that is lightweight and soft, fitted and flattering and in a neutral camel brown tone to pair with anything.
