what are my non-negotiables for fall? blue jeans, boots and a sweater. it’s a style recipe that can be created and recreated in multiple ways. add a blazer, add a jacket or add a poncho for your third layer then you’re battling the elements in style. no one ever knows what sort of weather fall will deliver on any given day. it’s a fickle season much like spring. one day it’s sunny with blue skies then next it’s overcast with rain and more rain. but i shan’t complain since Georgia has delivered the most spectacular weather the past few weeks even if raindrops are the current forecast. how’s it been in your neck of the woods?
the home projects continue as we ramp up for the holidays. the downstairs renovation is underway while i’m hauling out Thanksgiving dishes. i cannot believe October is coming to an end. Halloween is this Sunday! the trick and treaters will be out in full force. it’s always fun to see the creative costumes in play. one of my friends is a MUA and she always has the BEST costumes complete with spooky makeup. follow JennySueMakeup on Instagram for some inspiration.
what’s better than sweater weather? nuthin! and i mean nuthin. give me all the turtlenecks, crewnecks, polos, and v-necks. it’s the time of year to slip into one of my non-negotiables for fall. another non-negotiables for fall are boots. kneehigh boots are always on trend. booties too. i still love over the knee boots but this year i am loving the high shaft bootie that’s perfect for cropped denim and pants that continue in popularity. these suede boots are from Ann Taylor are seriously stylish. honestly, if you are looking for reasonably priced footwear Ann Taylor has you covered. and they still offer great sales whereas many retailers have cut back slashing prices. how cute are these cropped blue jeans from Banana Republic? if you want to test the trend waters with a new pant silhouette an easy route is with a pair of blue jeans. it won’t break the bank. add a cashmere turtleneck (another non-negotiables for fall) and you have a classic yet fashion forward outfit that’s as easy as 1.2.3. to put together. if the weather is on the chilly side a poncho is just the ticket!
