winter florals

with spring still officially a couple of months away, I am dreaming of winter florals…  on clothing, on walls.

fall on my mind

Now that it is officially August, I’ve officially got fall on my mind. Fall is my favorite season for fashion. Whenever it starts hitting the magazines and stores (and blogs) I get all giddy thinking about the leaves changing and the chilly mornings and afternoon sun. I look forward to getting back in my jeans and boots and cozy, drapey sweaters. Fall 2011 has me particularly excited because I am really feeling for all of the fall trends – a lot of them stemming from the 70s revival we saw starting in the spring. Cue jewels tones and working-girl blouses and heeled loafers (of which i totally owned a doc marten pair i adored in 7th grade- brings me back)! I am also loving all of the knitwear out there in various textures and knits. Pull out your sweaters girls, they’re officially in.

This is what I’m going to be wearing all fall…
