My 5 Favorite Fall Trends!

Fall Wish List

This fall I've been inspired by embellishment... which, if you know me, is crazy talk. I'm usually pretty neutral with my style. I still love a classic look - I type this in a blue blazer and black loafers, BUT sometimes you have to branch out.

And this season there are so many beautiful textures, hardware, and shapes. I'm just like a kid in a candy store; I love them all and can't pick just one. But for you, I've nailed down my top 5 favorite fall trends and pieces that I would love to own! So let's get to it:

1. Shearling

First, I already bought this coat, that's how absolutely fabulous it is. I'm praying for colder weather so I can wear it! Damn Colorado is still in the 60s/70s. 

This moto jacket is oversized so you can where it over your sweaters with no trouble. On my 5'3" frame it hits right at my butt (flattering) and is large without looking sloppy. The faux shearling runs all the way through the inside, even down the sleeves. I think this is going to be so cozy, if it ever gets cold :)

2. Loafers

I'm a woman obsessed. Loafers of all kinds, colors, shapes, and textures! I do have a few black pairs, but I'm lacking loafer personality in my wardrobe. These 2 would add a bit of pizazz to my feet. 

The leopard print caught my eye as all things leopard do (problem?). They are that classic shape and very close to the Gucci loafers that have been everywhere. The nude I like because just like nude heels they would elongate your leg a bit, and it's just a relief from black (but I can still wear with black!). 

3. Embroidered Jeans

Okay, okay these are crazy, I know it, you know it. But I don't care because they thrill me! I saw these at Nordstrom and they completely drew me in. They're just beautiful and would add so much fun and color to my otherwise neutral wardrobe. And why not have some bright flowers and birds in the dreary months? If you like this trend but want a little less everything, these are a great option too.

4. Flared Sleeve Sweater

I'm really into all things cozy and sweater right now. Because even though it's been warm here, the mornings are cold, and my office is chilly. I've been loving all the embellished sweaters lately that offer a little style to an otherwise plain winter staple. 

This sweater is just classic enough that I wouldn't feel silly in it, but the sleeves just add a little something special. 

5. Velvet Boots

I don't know where I'd wear these, or what with. But I love them! They seem so luxe and gorgeous. They also make me think of Christmas shoes from the 90's... you know those flat black velvet things with Christmas embroidery on the tops (now that I think about it let's bring those back!). I remember my mom had a pair and they were festive and fun and so grown up. 

These boots may be the even-more-grown-up version of those shoes of my childhood. And that midnight blue color seems mysterious and sexy. Yes, I need these in my life.

These are the trends and pieces I'm loving for this Fall and Winter. What trends have you most excited?
