My Five Picks For Fall!

Have you begun to think about what you need for fall yet? I am sure that there is not a heck of a lot that you actually NEED. It's more about what trends you are liking as you go through the pages of the September issues of your favorite fashion magazines. Trends are not meant for everyone. I have grown to accept that fact. Just because pink fur coats and wearing a skirt over pants happens to be on trend, doesn't mean it's something I must do or must have. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE seeing the new trends walk down the runways at the change of each season. In fact I LOVE pink fur coats! On other people. It's just not me. And what I wear might not be you. That doesn't mean you don't like it on me! See where I am going with this? This is one of the biggest reasons why I ADORE fashion! Because virtually everything is in style. It's all in how you wear it.

With all that being said, here are my five picks for fall 2012:
Boots are always cool for fall. I wear them with skirts, jeans and leggings from September 1st 'til mid April. This year I will be looking for a pair with a thicker heal vs the tiny kitten heal of my past choice. Love these Alpine Bonnet boots by Clarks.
A black fine gauge turtleneck like this one from Talbots. Such a basic item can have such a huge impact!
pink tuxedo jacket
I always love lady in a tuxedo jacket. Very chic and sexy without being obvious. I own a black tuxedo jacket with a black satin collar by NY & Co. that I purchased last fall at a resale shop called Polish in Bangor, Maine for $8. But I am loving the contrast of this one from H&M from this season. Another must have for me for sure, keeping in mind how awesome it will look with my boyfriend jeans and black suede lace up booties :) 

You may think that a pair of brown leggings are boring. But think of how cool they will look with my "new to me" sweater dress that I found at GoodWill (see photo to the right) and the Clarks boots that I posted above! The brown leggings I will be getting are from MaxStudio thanks to a surprise gift card from The Vogue Influencer Network that I belong to.

Double-cloth lady day coat with Thinsulate®
And last, but certainly not least, and probably most importantly, I will be on the hunt for a ladylike winter coat in an amazing color like this one from JCrew. I own a basic brown coat as well as a basic black. This year, my winter must be bright!
