Top Five Trends to Wear This Fall

It's Friday!

I have had a great week of sewing and designing.  I successfully completed one sweater that needed a few tweaks, so I made a second sweater with the modifications.  And, I am happy to say the second one fits perfectly.  I then decided to take the first sweater that didn't fit - and made modifications to it to turn it into a jacket.  And, it happens that I like the jacket re-design even more that the sweater.  My mom and husband both do, too. 

It is a good lesson to remember - how "mistakes" can turn into something even better.  I need to remember to see the positive - and not dwell on what didn't work.

All this sewing of fall sweaters/jackets - has me even more excited for cooler weather - and fall!

Last week I shared all the fall fashion trends seen at #NYFW on the fashion bloggers - and today I am sharing five fall trends to wear.

Hopefully you make it to the end of the post!

Rachel Parcell Fall Collection at Nordstrom






I kept hearing that the new Rachel Parcell Fall Collection was going to be the best ever - and I have to say it had a lot of great pieces.  And, I believe it is the best fall collection.

I had the wide leg dress pants on my radar - since I have been wanting a pair of these classic wide leg trouser (and have not been able to find any for a reasonable price). I am hopefully optimistic that they will fit perfectly.  (Just to be on the safe side - since I have a feeling they will sell out before I get them - I ordered a couple sizes.)

I want to buy these tall snakeskin boots for 25% off.

This classic blazer is 40% off.

These plaid pants are 40% off - would be great for work - and are very on trend.

These $30 leopard slip on sneakers - are very popular.

I still really like this layered necklace set.

This zip up sweater for only $20.


These grey jeans are 40% off.

I absolutely love these orange patent booties for fall.


This leopard tote is only $20.

I bought this pink snakeskin skirt (like the one above) for 60% off.

I love this picture on the old style NY subway car.  The seats are all mostly blue now, but some of them are still the orange.  It is my good memories from the days I spent living in the West Village one summer going to Parsons. (And, if you are new to my blog - you can read more about this experience HERE.)

Happy Friday!

I spent WAAAAYYYYY too much time on this post!  I got sucked into looking at all the fashion bloggers outfits for NYFW - and was having fun looking at all the trends - in real life.   There were so many trends that I saw on repeat from several fashion bloggers - that I thought it would be fun to showcase them in a post for some fall style inspiration.

Plaid definitely was a trend on repeat.  I saw plaid pants, plaid blazers, and plaid mini skirts. The plaid mini skirt styled with an off white top - was definitely popular.  I believe the more dainty fine-lined plaid is going to be a big hit this fall.

Another popular trend that is still going strong is Gucci belts.  The designer Gucci belts styled with either a long, floral dress or an animal print dress or skirt was the "go to" way to style it.

Animal print - especially snakeskin was also popular.  There were snakeskin dresses and skirts, and also snakeskin booties styled with a sweater dress or ribbed knit skirt and a classic moto jacket.

Rocker tees with mini skirts - or just retro rocker tees in general were very popular.  It is a bit funny to me because these girls are wearing the tees that people actually bought at the real concert back in my day.  Now, these retro tees are just licensed copies that Nordstrom and your other big box stores are selling.

One thing for sure - pink was everywhere!  Especially in the form of a wrap dress.

An all white top and pant outfit was seen on a few style bloggers.  I love that look with the white satin pants and the tied white blouse with the black jacket over the shoulder look.  As far as white looks,  one of my favorites was this oneIt sort of made me laugh - and then a little sad because most of the middle-aged business men that she refers to as "somewhat old" are probably my age.

Sneakers with a skirt, and even a sparkly sequin skirt was seen a lot.

Some of the most unique favorites would be the pleated black midi, and this plaid blouse look.  I really love the uniqueness and style of Anna Page.  She styled some of my favorite looks from NYFW.  I really think she has a unique point of view and creates her own style.

One day, I would love to attend fashion week.  I have followed NYFW for years. I am always intrigued by the shows and new styles.  The runway shows and street style inspire me - and give me ideas for things I would want to create.

Happy Wednesday!

I had plans to do a #NYFW post, but I did not get it all together.  So, I will plan to do it on Friday.  I wanted to share all my favorite #NYFW street style from style bloggers that I follow - and all the trends that I was seeing.  One thing for sure - plaid and sneakers were two big ones!  So, look forward to a fall-inspiring fun post on Friday!

Today I wanted to share different ways to style snakeskin.  I love snake print (almost as much as leopard - or more)!  I used to own several pairs of snakeskin pumps years ago.  And, when leopard become so popular, I cleaned out my closet and donated a lot of them to Goodwill.  I am so happy that snake print is coming back - I think it is a great way to add a little statement to any look.  I have shared six outfit inspirations above - and I could keep finding more and more inspiration.  Which is your favorite?  I love snake paired with a neutral sweater and I also like pattern mixing with plaid. I have seen it worn many different ways.  I don't think there is a wrong way to style snakeskin this fall.
