Say goodbye to the summer! For us Floridians, the summer is not nearly as exciting as some of you northerners. The heat…the mosquitos UGH! Some days, it’s almost too brutal to go outside. So our family welcomes the fall time! The temperatures don’t really dip too much and our leaves don’t change, but you can still feel the change of the season in the air. Mostly because as soon as the word fall is heard, Alison immediately pulls out her fall festive knick knacks and chat-skis. There are days when she totally makes me laugh because I swear deep down inside she is this sweet old grandma who is dying to wear a fall themed embroidered autumn vest. Do you know what I mean? Anyways haha, everyone loves to shop for fall but no one likes fall prices. Being trendy can be tough as a mom. Some days I feel like I don’t have the time to keep up with the latest trends and I just want to lounge around in my mom leggings all day. On those other days, I always try to remind myself how important it is to stay true to what you are passionate about (which for me is fashion) and dress to make yourself feel good. I have always loved to be in style and at the same time buy things that I can afford!
So today, I am giving you some great fall finds that are must haves for the new season! Everything here is on trend this fall and under $100! Yes you heard me! Under $100! And totally mom friendly! Enjoy and happy shopping.
Sweaters and Sweatshirts
Although there are very few days out of the year that we get to wear sweaters, when the chance arises I am going all out. I love a sweater with pretty details. A casual cardgian with distressing or a pretty ruffled shoulder. Cardigans are one of my favorite fall items because they are so easy to throw on over any basic outfit. I also am obsessed with the comfortable chic mom look. Cute cozy sweatshirts are a small obsession of mine that I working on…I promise. I always try to find one with lace up detailing or an exaggerated sleeve! Anything that makes it stand out and look stylish!
Fringe and Feminine
Feminine styles are definitely not going away any time soon! That means ruffles and frilly accents are here to stay a bit longer! Woo hoo because I am all about the ruffles haha. I am obsessed with this top from Madewell in my picks above. Pair it with a great denim jean and printed mule. Also these black fringe earrings are everything! Bauble bar has the best stuff when it comes to costume jewelry. I have them in pink and I get so many compliments on them! I also would definitely find a great one shoulder top because you are going to see this silhouette everywhere this season. Advantage, your one arm will now be nice and warm lol. JK!
Sneakers and Mules
My two favorite trends for fall footwear are mules and chic sneakers! I am 100% down for comfort all day long. I love mules because they are so easy to slip on and there are a ton of great styles out there. You can go casual or dressy. Keds and Adidas are my favorite brands right now. Sporty and chic is the perfect combo to look for when you buy sneakers. Yes Katie mules are in. I will take you to the dark side soon enough 🙂
