This is the first fall that I am not working in retail & let me tell you… it is amazing. But something that I definitely miss is seeing all of the new trends come in. My favorite part of my job was styling the mannequins, creating the window displays, & making the store look absolutely amazing. This fall I am keeping up with the new trends like normal people: Instagram, blogs, & Snapchat.
So since I am not seeing the clothes as they come into the stores, I put together some of my favorite fall trends. Right now I am obsessing over booties, off the shoulder & cold shoulder tops, & gold layering necklaces. Here are some of my favorites.
These booties are my absolutely favorites. I got them for a steal at DSW for a wedding last month & now they are weekly staple into my work wardrobe. Peep toe booties add so much comfort while still dressing up just a little bit. (See here, here, and here) This cold shoulder top I actually got at the beginning of the summer, & I’d be lying if I said I didn’t wear it a little too much when I got it. I was obsessed. I’ve seen some cold-shoulder tops done really wrong, but this one checks all of the boxes. It has more than just a spaghetti strap holding it up, it has the perfect amount of sleeve to make the sleeve look purposeful, & the cut out is the right amount where the top doesn’t look like it is falling off of my shoulder all day. Bravo Express, Bravo! This one here though, someone invite me somewhere ASAP so I have an excuse to push the Purchase button!
And this necklace, well who doesn’t love a double chain & some great statement pieces. My mom went back to World Market to get one for herself after picking this cutie up for my sister & I. I love the color of teal because it’s just enough where it can go with everything without being over bearing. And who doesn’t love a gold leaf?
