Fall is my favorite season of the year, and now that I am a mom, I absolutely love experiencing all things festive and fall with my kiddos. I know first hand that can be a challange to dress your kids comfortably, as well as stylishly and picture-ready, for fall excursions such as going to the pumpkin patch, the apple orchard and fall festivals.

These adorable outfits from Old Navy were perfect for my twin’s trip to a pumpkin patch and farm with their Nana and Papa last weekend while visiting Pennsylvania. {And I am wishing my daughter’s vest and too-cute shoes came in my size!}

I recently spoke to a fabulous group of ladies about fall fashion and was surprised to learn that so many of these stylish gals did not wear scarves.  I was shocked.  I assumed that scarves were the staple of cold weather accessories in a women’s wardrobe.  Well you know what happens when you assume…

…You get to write a blog post on the necessity of scarf wearing and all its benefits.

If you have a fear and loathing of scarves, let me talk you off the ledge.  The scarf is actually quite the multi-tasker.

The field jacket {also referred to as the “military jacket” or “army jacket”} made its fashion debut last year and is making a comeback this season. It’s no surprise that this jacket is around to stay. It’s neutral, versatile and can be worn from early-Fall to late-Spring.

I actually purchased my J.Crew Field Jacket last Fall, and it is back in stores again this year! I love pairing my jacket with neutrals {like pictured on this post} as well as with pops of color. {Army green is an amazing neutral that just about goes with any color.} This jacket also doubles as a stylish “rainy day” look paired with my Hunter rain boots!

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.

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…
