Fall Fashion Lookbook Part 1
The Slip Dress
I Heart the 90s! Well, not so much. There are a few trends that I mulled over for a minute and realized they were too costume-y for me. The choker? Nope, not in my world. The little backpack? I am on the fence about this ONLY because it is uber-convenient when you have two little kids and need both hands free. The one trend that I am fully embracing is the slip dress.
The reason? I have a crazy long torso and using a dress as a layering piece ensures that I don't accidentally flash people my love handles when I am on the move. I found a slip dress at Urban Outfitters last week for $29 (shown in photo above), and it is available in black, nude (a gorgeous blush color), multi and mustard. If you want a camisole, grab one for under $20 at H&M...Who What Wear just did a whole spread on lace camis and included it. Honestly you can head to a thrift store and grab an old school slip if you are cost-conscious. For a few bucks, you can turn lingerie into a layering piece.
Wear later: Over jeans and under a cardigan.
The Slouchy Sweater
I can't ever find a sweater that keeps its shape. My kids spill stuff all the time, they wipe their grubby little hands on my clothes and I need to be able to wash my clothes almost every time that I wear them.
I found this insanely soft sweater at the BCBG outlet for only $44, and it will be a staple in my fall fashion show (um...I mean my wardrobe. Every day is a fashion show in my world because mixing and matching items in my closet is pretty much the highest form of entertainment for me).
The Metallic Mirror Nails
Try OPI Push and Shove, essie No Place Like Chrome (featured above) or ella+mia in Mirror Mirror.
