The Double G Standard




I don't know about you, but come Fall all I really want to wear are neutrals. And lucky for me, this trend surfaced just in time. Only recently did I realize how chic an entirely grey outfit can be; gone are the days of the middle school groutfit and in are the days of the sophisticated monochromatic look. Even green, which I always feared would make me appear as a giant lime or military brat is taken down in level of ostentatiousness to become a sleeker, and more slimming color, and who doesn't want to look a little thinner when there are 5 different coats piled on top of them?

Floppy, Not Sloppy


7) Topshop Floppy Wool Hat


Oh, floppy hats. Long gone are the hot Summer day's, but these beauties will live on in our Fall and Winter wardrobes this season. As I mentioned a couple days ago in this post, the 70's are back. Wide-brim hats were born and raised in this era and continue to live on for multiple reasons - one being that they provide invaluable protection from the sun, and the other being, well, fashion. However, what a lot of people don't realize is how well these hats transition into Fall and Winter. They're not only great for blocking the sun in the Summer, but also fantastic at saving your blowout from the rain and snow in during the other seasons. When I first came across this concept years ago I found it a completely genius idea, and pretty stinking adorable. Just picture all of the little snowflakes lining the brim of your hat, I mean could it get an cuter? You could say I'm a little excited to try it out again, and a little advance warning to all my Instagram follower's; when the opportunity presents itself, you know I'll be sharing it.

Shear Delight



1) BCBG Faux Fur Coat (on sale!)

Another trend for Fall is shearling jackets, and thank goodness for that. Around here it get's pretty chilly come the winter months (negatives are sadly not an uncommon occurrence), and though wearing multiples of these under my favorite trench coat will make the process just a little bit easier, I'd gladly make do without the the cold, thank you! Even during the beginning of Fall however, they make great transitional wear. Just take last weekend for example, I wore a new shearling jacket I purchased cuffed at the sleeves for a chillier Fall day and felt cozy and fabulous (two of the best feelings if you ask me) all day long. Not to mention all of the complements I got for an outfit that felt like a blanket had been wrapped around me. So, even though this may be coming from a girl biased to jackets, I can guarantee you that once you get your hands on one of these silky soft and cozier-than-a-teddy-bear jackets, you won't be able to take it off.



I also mean that last part very literally, I wear mine when I'm working in my office just about every single day because it's that comfortable!
