F(5) Falling for Fall Fashion

Back by popular demand…Five Fabulous Fashion Finds on Friday and if it’s one thing I love…it’s fall fashion baby!  You know…sweaters, scarves, boots, fur.  Today we have it ALL!  I did a little birthday shopping this week…don’t worry I DID NOT buy shoes OR boots…but if I cannot, you may as well!  So…we’ll start with that! 🙂

Everyone has a great pair of black boots but brown…they can be harder to come by but everyone should have a pair.  They are less expected and a great addition to your fall wardrobe.  Go tall or go home, I say!  These slouchy heel brown beauties are perfect with skinnies, leggings and even skirts from one of my favorite places…Target of course.  For $34.99 you just can’t beat it! 

One of my most favorite things to layer in the fall months is a vest.  I love to kick it up a notch with fur which contrary to what you might think CAN be casual or formal.  This week I reviewed the new Jennifer Lopez Collection at Kohl’s and it.is.fabulous!  My most favorite item from her fall line is this Reversible Faux Fur Vest in Ivory.  Don’t worry…you can wear white after labor day PLUS you get 2 looks in one!  And one of my favorite thing about Kohl’s…discounts on TOP of sale prices!  Use those coupons and do me proud!

I am currently in a denim dilemma.  My husband loves a flare…and he has good taste…but I love a skinny…to show off  my boots of course.  So I am on the lookout for the perfect skinny jean.  My most favorite place to shop for denim is American Eagle.  While I feel SO old going into that store…let’s face it turning 31 this week makes me on the older end of their shoppers…their jeans fit me SO well!  Remember dark denim is the most flattering which makes these skinnies in worn dark a great option.

A fall staple this season is a cozy cable sweater.  I have several from my days at J.Crew and let me tell you season after season they are worth the price!  With that being said I have found that the most versatile sweater to own is a cardigan.  It can be worn so many different ways…over dresses, under vests, belted, open…the sky is the limit!  This Cambridge Cable Cardigan in Heather Sage is a fantastic option for layering and will be your faithful friend in all cold weather! 

One of my most favorite things to throw on before I head out the door is a scarf.  They are warm, stylish and you don’t even have to think about a necklace!  I love to keep it local when shopping for accessories and a fave on my list is Jade in Rockford.  I was just there the other day and they have a plethora of scarves in solids and patterns in all hues ranging from $20 to $28.  And the quality…let’s just say I have a scarf that’s still going strong from nearly 8 years ago!  If you’re looking for a unique item for you or a gift for someone else…Jade will never disappoint!  AND in honor of the Harvest Festival take an additional 20% off any one item Saturday and Sunday this weekend!

Well that sums up my return to F(5).  What better way than to fall into Fall fashion!  I hope you all are planning fun-filled trips to the orchard, sipping cider and carving pumpkins!  Have a donut and buy some boots for me and enjoy this gorgeous Autumn God has created for us, will ya?  One a serious note may all of us remember that to be truly beautiful, it must come from within our hearts because that is what is glorifying to our Heavenly Father.  Happy Harvest time my friends!

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting.  But a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.  Proverbs 31:30
