Since it has been raining a bit where I live I have been drawn to my hat collection a lot more frequently. My hair turns to an awful, frizzy, mess in the rain and I would rather just avoid it altogether! Not only that, but I am starting to get roots again! Almost time for another hair appointment!
So what do you think of shorts with tights? I love it because it enables you to wear shorts when it's cold! It opens up so many more style options the colder months. When I first wore shorts, tights and heels I felt a little hoochie (are people still saying that?) but when I asked my husband, he said it looked nice. He is always my gauge in hoochie-ness! I can always count on him for the truth! I don't think he wants his wife parading around in booty shorts! Heehee.
Grey and green is my new favorite color combination. My husband actually wore some grey shorts and a green shirt the other day (by my suggestion). He originally thought it didn't match but I explained to him that grey is a neutral and basically goes with anything! You would think that being so into fashion, that I would want to style everyone I know! Believe it or not, I don't normally pick out my husband's clothes! I just throw in little suggestions here and there! I tell him "You know sports, but I know fashion!" To each his own!
How amazing is this purse? It is Nine West and I got it at Marshall's for $15 because the clasp was broken. I fixed it! I love deals like that because a lot of damaged items are fixable! You just have to make sure that it is worth the discount. In this case I saved about $15. Totally worth it!
Just being silly. Seriously, I look so ridiculous when taking pictures of myself. Just me...by myself...with a tripod...jumping around. Ahhh the humiliation.

Ok, this is starting to get out of control. My obsession with army green continues and it is getting ridiculous! It's everywhere I look in the stores and I cannot refrain from buying every item in this amazing color! Somebody stop me before I drown in a sea of army green clothes! Pretty soon I'm going to be dressed in a complete ensemble of army green and look like Oscar the Grouch! Except with a smile of course! I loooove these loose shorts. They were on sale at Charlotte Russe for $12.
I don't normally like pairing two loose items together, but showing a little leg kind of makes it ok for some reason. This shirt appears to be shapeless, but is actually perfectly nipped and tucked in the right places to create a little silhouette.
I have to say that I am completely smitten with clogs. They are awesome!
This gold necklace I bought at Burlington Coat Factory for $7. My favorite bangle bracelets and a cocktail ring from Forever 21 add a little more sparkle...as if it needed it. I just realized that if I was wearing a floppy hat, rather than a fedora, I would kind of feel J Lo-esque. LOL! Maybe it's the shirt...

Alas! As I am browsing the stores I feast my eyes on boots, cargo pants, muted neutral tones and leather jackets! Summer is coming to an end and fall is on it's way! Yes! Oh yes! The past couple days have been sunny but somewhat cool...the perfect weather! I love feeling the wind in my hair when there is a little breeze. It is so refreshing! And it makes me feel like I'm in a movie or something. You know when they show a girl in slow motion with her hair blowing in the wind. Cheeeesy!
This is such a perfect transitional outfit from summer to fall. Still light enough for the heat, but incorporating some trends for fall. Military elements are really hot right now. I always love military details on my clothing no matter what season. It adds a little toughness to any look. Leopard print is also in for fall. I am itching to purchase a leopard print purse! That is definitely going on the top of my IT list right now!
After many years of paying close attention to trends, I have found that the clothing of each season stays pretty much the same. It is the sillhouette and details that really change (For example, the exaggerated shoulder was really popular this past year, I think that's kind of dying down now). This makes it quite easy to keep your look updated. Keep your classic pieces for each season, i.e. a leather jacket for fall. Then you pair it with a trendy piece or two, i.e. the leather jacket with tapered trousers and a statement necklace. Another tip on trends: Don't spend too much on trendy items because you may only wear them one or two times (unless you can afford it then by all means...go for it). Forever 21 and H&M keep up with all the lastest looks and are very inexpensive!
I hope that you have enjoyed my tips for fall shopping and that they are beneficial to you. When will fall ever get here?! My boots and jackets are waiting! And they are getting VERY impatient!

See how happy I am now that I don't have massive roots anymore? After 6 hours of sitting in a chair with enough foil on my head to aquire a satellite signal, I became blonde, blonde, blonde! It's a little lighter than before, and I'm likin' it!
Judging from the name of this post, you can probably guess that I'm obsessed once again. Cargo skinnies are super cool! Of course, adding a frilly shirt gives this outfit the feminine touch it needs. I don't want the cargos to give off the construction worker vibe! Although you don't really catch any construction workers wearing tight skinnies. That would be rather frightening...how on earth would they move around?
As you can see, I'm having a little too much fun...
These leopard Kathy Van Zeeland shoes are going to carry me through fall, winter, spring AND next summer! They are great for this hot weather, but I am especially excited to wear them with tights and a skirt when it gets cold!
FYI this is not my car. It's actually a car parked in front of a house where no one lives. There are tons of spider webs on it! I was a little freaked out, but thought it would make for a cool picture.
