The Mommy Style File: Fall Trends for Less
The Colors- COBALT or OXBLOOD
Thrilled. I just love Cobalt, but amazingly I don't own one piece of clothing in this hue. I hit up H&M today and saw the perfect accessory for fall that rang in under ten bucks. Want to make it an infinity scarf? Check out my how with my 30Second Mom tip!
|H&M Scarf- $9.95|
|Mossimo Juniors Boxy Top Tie Back Maxi Dress- $24.99|
Affordable, versatile and having cool oxidation properties, copper is one chic metal. Try Essie's new line of mirror metallic polish in Penny Talk. It is priced around $8, but you can get $3.50 off a $10 purchase from Ulta with the coupon below. Also, if you have a Klout score over 45, you can claim a perk for a free polish! (If you think Klout is for suckers, ignore it. All I know is they give me a bunch of free stuff!)
The Animal Print- PYTHON
Of course leopard is still in (has it ever really gone out?) but python is giving leopard a run for it's money. This lovely combo of greys and black really gives you the latitude to mix it up. My suggestion? Go for a necklace, belt or clutch to give your LBD a little kick!
|Python Statement Necklace- $10.50 @ Wet Seal (oh yes I did!!)|
|Rackett Clutch Python- $29 @ Nine West|
Ok. Here's where you could go two different ways on this with the leather: A- Save your pennies and go faux. B- Investment piece. I am on the hunt for a pleated faux leather skirt in my size similar to the one from Oasis below.
As for the lace, I adore a full lace dress! It can be worn with a cardigan to dress it down, or killer heels for an evening out on the town. Just make sure to balance the sheerness with a more modest cut. Lace tights are always a winner in my book as long as the outfit is fairly neutral!
|Oasis Faux Leather Pleat Skirt- $$45.98 @ asos.com|
|Lace Dress- $49.95 @ H&M|
|Two Tone Open Tights- $19 @ Bebe|
