Wow, it has been awhile! It is a busy time of year in our house. We just finished with our Runfola birthday season. My kids have birthdays one after the other, every month starting in July. I really enjoy making our kiddos feel special, especially in a very full house, it is nice for them to have a few days to just celebrate them and their accomplishments over the last year. Needless to say I have been a little distracted, but I have missed you all. Not to worry I am back on my “A” game and ready for a little shopping for Fall!
I wanted to chat a little bit about building a simple fall outfit! All of us can throw on a cute basic Tee, a necklace and some booties. To be honest, all and all I would say this is a pretty cute basic look. But if we want to take a basic “look” and make it into a complete outfit we can add a few more pieces. We do this by layering. This is easy to do in Fall because the weather is cooler and we need more warmth anyway. Instead of throwing on a jacket try adding a cute infinity scarf and a cargo vest. It seems simple but we forget to do these basic “add ons” when we are running out the door. Another way to complete a look is by adding something unexpected, like a fun bracelet or a brighter lip. I don’t wear red lipstick often, but there is something about the holiday season that has me thinking about red! If you are not a huge fan of red lips, try it for a dinner out instead of wearing it for the day! You can find the links to the items picture by clicking the picture below.
I have a few fun scarves coming my way and I am excited to share them with you. The one pictured is one of my favorites. It is infinity style so you don’t have to worry about how to wear it, just throw it on, fluff it up and you have it down! The fun thing about adding a scarf, is that it is an easy way to add in a pop of color to an ordinary outfit. Don’t be afraid of pattern mixing. Stripes and Plaid are easy to do. First, make sure the colors are complementary or that the scarf has at least one of the colors that your basic tee has. An example would be, if you are wearing a black and white striped tee make sure the scarf has black or white in it somewhere. Adding a solid vest or jacket can give you a more subtle look. It is easy and fun, go ahead and try it! Happy Fall shopping!
