Yes, we just left out of the apex of summer, we have seen (hopefully) the last of the hottest days of the year. I am excited. As the fashion magazines tease me with the delectable jewels to come, I waited with baited breath for the August arrivals- to receive my September fashion bibles! Fall Season brings about many reasons why I cannot wait for the season to arrive, and read on as I share a few reasons with you!
Why now? Why Fall?
Well, here are my favorite and most important reason for ME, and why I cannot wait!
Quite frankly, when it’s hot, wearing less clothes is always tricky. My thighs rub uncomfortably, I don’t always want to show my arms (summer has since changed this), and I find myself having to get extra creative to dress for the temperamental weather. I need my fashion to be easy and free, and unless I am wearing the same five dresses, dressing for the heat sometimes is too much work.
I am self admitted a fabric snob, and although the summer brings about the most luscious of cottons, I LOVE the innovative and decadent collections of wools, brocades, lame` details, furs(faux or real), sumptuous silks, basically, I am in fabric heaven…
I love a great boot! I hope you read yesterday's post, Where I gave a few tips about fitting for boots and where to find those wide calf wonders! BUT! Boots! I love them. The taller the better. Flat and over the knee? Heaven. A great boot offers casual sophistication or a voluptuous vixen if you style it right!
Sexy, chic, bold, and edgy, leather rolls all of these into one. I am still waiting for the ideal leather sheath dress to cross my eyes, but for the most part? Yeah… Give me a sick and sleek leather jacket, a midi leather skirt, oooh or even a pair of leather shorts. I am ready!
Granted, I am in Atlanta GA as I write this, however it does not take away from the fact that I love a great coat. In my former life while living down in the south, I lived for a great denim trench, a wool number, and then the fancier options. Thanks to the advances in plus size fashion, I too can play in my outerwear!
What are some of your favorite things about fall?
