I love fall fashion! I never want to dress up in the summer, preferring to stick to shorts and t-shirts. The moment fall hits, I’m digging into my drawers for fun color combinations and pull out sparkly jewelry to accessorize.
I’m back for Fashion Friday with a new look for me. I bought a pair of ankle boots after reading Jo-Lynne of Musings of a Housewife’s tips for fall boots. I’ve never been a big fan of boots. I only have one pair of simple black boots in my closet that I bought from Hannah Andersson many years ago. I took a chance and bought another pair of boots, this time a pair of Anne Klein ankle boots at DSW, my favorite shoe store.
To be honest, I left those Anne Klein boots in the box for a week before putting them on. They felt good in the store, but I know from past experience that feeling good in the store doesn’t always equal feeling good at home. I took a chance, put the boots on and fell in love. In fact, I spent the entire day wearing them and loving them. And, talking about them endlessly to my husband. Poor guy!
My other new fashion accessory is scarves. Being short I always thought scarves were not for me. I couldn’t find scarves I loved, and all the scarves I saw were SO BIG.
But, I started studying how other moms wore scarves. And, asking questions. And playing with the scarves. This green/yellow scarf from Target I wrapped around my neck and tucked the ends under the inside bits.
Many of Target’s scarves are under $20, making them a frugal accessory for the fall. I’m really tempted to order this geometric infinity scarf from Target; I love the graphic design.
