Favorite Fall Fashions for 2011

I won’t be linking up with What I Wore Wednesdays this week as I am sure that you guys don’t want to see pictures of my extremely fashionable nightshirts since that is all I have worn since getting home from the hospital. Oh and the unkempt hair and glasses make me super-hot so I would hate to make you all jealous of my killer style.


You can stop laughing now!

The cooler temperatures this week have kept me window shopping online for new fall styles (who knew that August would turn out to be cooler than July here in NC?). So I thought I would share with you six fall items I would love to add to my closet!

It will be a little while before its cold enough to wear this but it is a classic staple for any wardrobe and I love the pop of color! I have this really weird thing about mixing black and brown in any fashion so its important for me to have a coat that I can wear with both!

2. Military Inspired Jacket

I love completing a look with a jacket and this one is a great alternative to a regular blazer!

3. Flared Leg Jeans

You can never underestimate the power of a good pair of jeans and you’ll find no one happier than me that the skinny jean trend has been replaced with flares! LOVE!

4. Cords

Another pants trend I am extremely excited about! I loved cords back in the day so I am really glad that they have made a reappearance in stores and they will definitely be making a reappearance in my closet.

5. Sweaters

Ok, there is absolutely nothing glamorous about this sweater but I love it. Sometimes the best outfits are built with simple pieces – a cozy sweater, a favorite pair of jeans, and some great boots. Speaking of great boots:

I have never ever owned a pair of knee-high boots even though I’ve been drooling over them for the past several fall season so I think it may finally be time to add a pair to my shoe collection.

What fashion finds have you been drooling over for fall?

p.s. I realize that just about all of my fashion finds are found at Old Navy (or similar retailer) and I much as I love to drool over more fashionable, high-priced designer items, I figure I may as well not kid myself and only drool within my means 🙂

  1. I’m looking for a great kimono-sleeved sweater for under $75. Any ideas?

      I will keep my eyes open! You’ve given me a special project while I’m still home in bed recovering!

    Glad to see that you are doing better! I have been praying for you, particularly during the surgery… As far as fashion, I love the yellow coat! Talbots showed yellow in their catalog; I thought they were going out on a limb with it for fall, but I’m happy to see other retailers with it! May I also suggest Pajama Jeans?:-). They are “As Seen On TV” kind and amazing. I need soft fabrics due to RSD nerve pain and these deliver. They aren’t super giving around the waist, though, so you may need to wait til after recovery. My teens want them now, so I suppose they pass the Frumpy Test!:-)


I love hearing from you!
