Looking Forward to Fall

A chill is in the air, the leaves are starting to turn – fall is almost here! In most parts of the country, anyways – here it’s still regularly hitting 95 degrees. But it’s been raining a lot more lately, and definitely beginning to cool down (95 is better than 105!) so it’s time to start thinking about my fall wardrobe. Or more accurately, fall wardrobe philosophy – I don’t think it’s necessary to purchase new clothes every season!

For fall, I’m thinking…

  • More gray than black in outfits, with accents of dark, rich colors. Royal blue, deep purple, and wine especially.
  • Lots of hats and hair accessories! These, of course, are something I always love (but never seem to find time to make/dig out at shops), but hats are especially useful for fall.

  • More feminine shoulder accents, instead of military esque. Vintage glittery brooches pinned on, ruffles on shoulders, that sort of thing.
  • Lots of thin, light layers. Chunky sweaters are going to be in, I know, but I don’t think they’ll be very flattering on me. I especially want some long, sheer cardigans in a few different colors.

  • I’m definitely wanting a few pairs of gloves – but pretty ones, not mitten-y ones.
  • Lots of leggings and tights!┬áSince I’m sure I’ll be able to wear a lot of skirts here, unlike Missouri, where if a skirt was worn in the dead of winter, it would be sorely regretted, no matter how many layers were involved. Specifically on my wishlist are black lace-patterned tights/socks, vertical striped thigh highs, and opaque tights in purple, yellow, and turquoise.

  • Chunky jewelry in slightly “off” colors. Pewter instead of silver, brass instead of gold.

  • A general feeling of destroyed elegance. Lots of deconstructed lace, shredded details, that sort of thing. But with more of a vintage frock exposed to the elements feel, instead of a grungey one.

That’s my vision for this fall and winter. I’m looking forward to experimenting some, since I won’t be quite so limited by the weather here (see: won’t have to be wearing thick socks and long sleeves and as many layers as humanly possible, all the time!).

What are you feeling for fall?
