Now that the weather has cooled down, my warmer clothes have started creeping in.  It takes a little bit longer to put together a fall outfit – nothing is as easy as throwing on a summer dress and sandals! – but I usually have a couple key pieces on repeat.

Structured bags are great for fall!  They help balance out the shapeless sweaters and other outerwear.  I got this little satchel back when Phillip Lim did the Target collaboration.  It’s been perfect!

Anything in animal print is always spot on for fall.  (Pun untended!)  I have many great leopard print pieces that I turn to once the temps drop, and now I get to add these Sydney Flat Drivers from Vionic into the mix.  Just a tip about wearing leopard print – it’s considered a neutral and looks great with other prints.  Just don’t get too outta control.  Keep the total colors that you wear to three or under.

Last time I wore this long maxi floral dress, I kept the look super casual with a camo jacket, flat sandals, and a backpack.  (See my Return of the Backpack post.)

But when wearing this larger print for work, I decided to glam it up a little with a fitted tweed blazer and some rhinestone earrings.

Some days I just really need that glam factor…especially days when I find that my maxi dress doubles as a tissue.  Nothing says “I’ll miss you when you’re working, mommy” like getting snot wiped on me as the little one hugged me good-bye.

Joy.

Stop on over at Sassy Moms in the City.  I wrote a post about my new favorite lip gloss…I have seriously being wearing it nonstop.

Leopard and Mustard

26 Sep 2012 Permalink

If you heard a squeal off in the distance on Saturday, it was probably me when I found this leopard pencil skirt (double bonus…leopard and pencil!!)

The first thing I did when I got home was wash it…and then I made the tough decision of what top to wear with it first.  I settled on this mustard sweater, but I have a whole slew of other options just waiting…I’m predicting that I’ll be wearing this skirt at least once a week until winter.

Have you found yourself any fall favorites yet?
