5 Fall Trends


With being a mom and all the time-consuming responsibilities that come with that, I've been trying not to put excessive pressure on myself. That includes not stressing about blogging all the time. But I wanted to take some time to share some purchases I've made for this fall and talk about some trends to be on the lookout for! My day-to-day life is much different than it was a year ago so I'm trying to buy things that work for my new lifestyle while still being fashionable.

As an aside, now that the weather is cooling down and Henrik is more or less on a rough schedule, it'll be easier to take more blog photos to use for outfit posts. Be on the lookout for some of those in the upcoming weeks!

Here are some trends I am totally digging this season:

1. Velvet Anything: I am loooooving all of the velvet pieces that are coming out this season! I bought this skirt from Anthropologie and I am ridiculously obsessed with it (also comes in a black pattern!). It can be paired with lots of different colored tops/jackets/booties and can be dressed up or down with ease.  Plus pleated midi skirts are everywhere this season too. And rightly so! They're so cute and flattering.

I also recently got a velvet patterned top from Target! It's soft and can be thrown on with jeans or olive pants. For some reason, it isn't showing up online but it's this same top but in pink. Hopefully it gets put online soon! You can also check your local Target to see if they have it.

I also got this cute velvet pouch to keep inside my bigger purses and diaper bags to corral my stuff in. This soft pink color is going to be a staple for me this season!

2. Baseball Hats: Since my hair only gets really "done" like once or twice a week, baseball hats have been lifesavers for me. They coverup my scraggly hair and still look cute. Bonus: Henrik thinks they are FASCINATING. I have this one from Target and this one from Gigi Pip (on sale for $20!).

3. High-waist Jeans: Now that I'm more or less back to pre-baby size, I thought it might be a good time to buy some new jeans (haven't bought new non-maternity ones in a long time). I decided I really wanted to invest in some good quality ones that fit well and are comfortable (not always an easy task). I tried on lots of different pairs and fell in love with this one and this one from Madewell. I loooove how flattering high-waist jeans are and these look and feel great on. I also scored this pair from Abercrombie for $35 when they had a sale! I'll probably end up snagging another pair or two next time they're marked down.

4. Faux Leather: I got a cognac faux-leather jacket last year for Christmas and wore it a bunch so I'm excited to break it out again this year! The neutral color is very versatile and it quickly glams up any outfit. Here are a few similar ones here, here, and here.

I also got this faux-leather bag from Target a few days ago and I really like it. It looks pretty good for only $40 and has some nice storage features. It's a great size for moms since you can stuff a few baby essentials in there too.

5. Knotted Tees/Dresses: No longer do you have to try and half-tuck or knot your shirts and dresses, they come already done for you! This $22 top is affordable and comes in a bunch of colors. I've already worn my pink one a bunch and am contemplating grabbing a few other colors as well. The knot adds great visual interest to any outfit with minimal effort.

I got this knotted dress online a few weeks ago in black and I really like how the knot detail makes it a step-up from just a standard LBD. It's a great blank canvas for fall and will look great with a moto jacket and booties.

And here are some other recent purchases I've made that I've been super pleased with:

Happy fall shopping!

About: To play with Henrik! He's been so much fun lately.
Hoping: Chris will get to come home early today. 
Excited: To see Hamilton this weekend GAAAAAHHH. 
Days Until Christmas: 87!
