Officially Fall

Well, as of Monday it is officially Fall. Soon all the leaves will be vibrant colors and we’ll all be sipping hot cider, going on hay rides and picking the best pumpkins. Fall really has all the good stuff, doesn’t it ?

And of course one of my favorite parts of Fall is bringing out the leather jackets and boots, because somehow they just really help with the mood.

Boy Meets Girl

One of the greatest things about fashion is the allowance of mixing and matching. That’s what makes great style…those ‘highs and lows’ I’ve mentioned before are really what generate unique outfits. Today’s blogfit is just that. Menswear + Feminine details. I absolutely love feminine styles and silhouettes, but I also love menswear details, like a good piece of leather. I think leather is one of my favorite textiles used in apparel and accessories. It’s got such a versatile quality to it. It can be rough and tough and completely utilitarian, but it can also be the perfect detail to many contemporary designs…and just adds that perfect amount of ‘edge’.

These trouser chinos definitely say ‘menswear’. When I first saw them in the window, I honestly thought they were a dress pant…I then realized they were actually a chino and was really surprised! But surprised in a good way, because as a chino, they are very comfortable but the pinstripe makes them appear much more sophisticated.

Bring Out the Plaid

Bring Out the Plaid

Hello all! Well, it’s September and you know what that means…Fall is creeping up on us. Soon the switch will be flipped and we will be sipping cider or pumpkin spice lattes, wearing our scarves, boots, leather jackets, and of course, PLAID. Plaid says FALL to me. When I see plaid, I think of Fall. This Fall, I have ‘plaid dress’ on my ‘to make’ list, so hopefully in the near future, you will indeed see me in a Callie Original plaid dress. ;) I put together this Polyvore set revolving around a plaid dress from Modcloth. Aren’t those Sorel boots AWESOME?! It’s such a fashion forward boot compared to what Sorel is known for. Good to see though, I love them! :)

What says FALL to you??
