As August wraps up, many of us ladies find ourselves looking to update our wardrobes for the upcoming fall season. For the last few weeks I've been taking inventory of what I have (that fits correctly) and making a wish list of things I wanted to add to my closet. I've also been reading various magazines and ripping out pages to add to my lookbook/mood boards/ ( or random scraps of paper that make me feel like I'm doing something overly creative lol). Am I a glorified fashionista? Not at all. At least not yet, anyways :-) But my style has evolved over the past year, as I am maturing and learning what works for my size and shape. I want to look my personal, polished best when I step out into the world as a mother, wife, and self-proclaimed diva, so I began putting in a little time to attend to my wardrobe. Thanks to Polyvore, I was able to create a few visuals for my fall wardrobe basics.
Bottoms: As far as bottoms go, I'm pretty much a jeans girl in the Fall. They seem to go well no matter what the occasion. When I'm dressed down, they look great with loafers or sneakers. If I want to dress up, they go great with boots or pumps. And just in case I don't look dressy enough in jeans, I've added a pencil skirt and pair of black pants into the mix.
Shoes & Accessories: These items really speak for themselves! In fact, I probably should have added this entry first, because I have a tendency to pair outfits around what shoes and accessories I want to wear for the occasion. Backwards, I know. But with my style and my wardrobe choices for fall, I feel like these items work best.
**I was going to add dresses to the wardrobe, until I realized every dress I have or am adding to my wishlist seems to be a wrap-dress. Can you ladies please give me some suggestions for dresses? I would love to know which stores and styles are best for women who are top heavy. I would really appreciate it ;-)
What are you looking forward to wearing this fall?
