Is Summer over yet? The only thing I truly like about Summer is the longer days and the sunshine. The heat on top of heat, and if you live in Houston add the humidity, can get old real quick. I’m personally ready for it to be out of here, and for Fall to start. Even though we don’t get that much cooler weather, it’s a welcomed change from the brutal 100 degree plus days. Additionally, it is one of my favorite fashion seasons because things get extra turnt up! Here’s what I’m looking forward to:

  • Better Clothing Selections – The cashmeres, merino wools and heavier fabrics get to come out and play. And this Fall we get to play big time with not only great fabrics but some fab trends! One in particular is the military inspired look that’s still strong; think peacoats, gold accents on jackets, and lug soles on shoes.
  • The Hat Game Is SICK – During Fall we great to break out the felts, wools, tweeds, and cords baby. Don’t get me wrong, I go ape shit over a big wide brim straw hat, but honey there is nothing like a bad to the bone felt/wool trilby!
  • Boots, Boots, and more Boots (don’t worry I am still doing my annual boot write-up) – I love them and look forward to wearing them up until the very last day of Spring or at least until my feet start to sweat because it’s so warm outside.

Check out some of these fun items to get your Fall started…
