looking forward to fall

Am I the only one thinking about Fall?  
It's almost August, the weather is still HOT but I am already thinking of Fall. I would have to say Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the sunny breezy weather that we get here in Texas. I love the cozy feel, the way the leaves change, treating myself to a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks and Fall fashion trends


During Fall I like to wear lots of layers. Leggings, long sleeves, tunics, cardigans paired with boots, flats, pumps and the right accessories pretty much sum up Fall for me. I'm super excited to prepare for all the Fall fashion trends and to make it easier to shop, I'm putting some looks together starting with the one below.

Last year the weather took it's time and stayed hot, then we had that weird transition where everyone was confused by the morning air on what the day was going to really be like. Have you ever seen that? One girl is dressed like summer and her friend is dressed like fall. I personally never let that happen, no matter what season, I always make a point to ask what my friend is wearing, I wouldn't want to be too dressed up or too dressed down and even worse, dressed for the wrong season. Hopefully this year Texas, although infamous for it's bi-polar weather, will make up it's mind so I can jump right into Fall wear.

Because I am usually cold, the outfit below is perfect for the beginning of Fall in Texas. The leggings are light enough to wear in case the weather warms a little and the soft sweater will keep my upper body warm because that's wear I get the coldest and all paired with some flats instead of boots to keep things cool on the lower half.

Looking forward to fall

Aside from the Fall Fashion Trends, I am always super excited for the newest nail trends no matter what season. Last Fall I was keen on wearing Fall colors with a gold chevron, or gold tip. Now I look forward to new designs and new colors.

According to Refinery 29, these are the 2012 Fall Nail Polish Trends. They are pretty similar to last years colors, which isn't a problem for me because I already own most of them. I have a forest green peacoat that I absolutely adore, and I think I am gonna try to work in some forest green nail color.

    For fall I love to wear jewel tones. Winter can be so grey that I like to see some colour.

    1. I too enjoy jewel tones, sometimes when I wear neutrals I like to add a pop of color with lipstick and nail polish or a scarf.

      Thank you for stopping by!

  7. I really love the colors!
    I'm definitely looking forward to Fall as well. I love being able to wear layers and cute boots, which is something I definitely can't do in the summer time.

    1. Yes! That is what I LOVE about fall. I love wearing boots, and maybe I am just tired of seeing people in shorts hahah. I like fall, people seem to "dress up" more.

  8. That outfit looks great for the beginning of Fall! I really like Summer weather, but I enjoy Fall and Winter for layering! :D
    The Fall nail polish colors look lovely. I stuck with nudes and deep colors during Fall last year.

  11. Oh, I love fall too! It's definitely the best season here in Sweden, so beautiful and mosquito free! :D I also look better in neutral colors such as brown and beige so I kind of "fit in" in autumn. As far as nail polish goes I love all dark shades for fall. Maybe I'll save the red and green for the holidays but oh how I love dark polishes. If you haven't already you should check out Polyvore and make your own collages like these, it's great fun and awesome for inspiration! Great post, btw :)
