This Fall I've been a whole heck of a lot more self conscious about what I wear because of that whole having a baby thing. I'm in between jean sizes as I'm losing the baby weight, my you-know-what's are abnormally large, and the whole muffin-top-issue.
Therefore I've been perusing Pinterest like it's my job, checking out the new Fall trends, trying to figure out how I can fit my body into these styles, look semi-decent, get out of my normal yoga pants & tank top attire and look, you know, presentable.
The one thing I have already proclaimed my love for multiple times is the fact that long, flowy tops are in. HALLELUJAH, thank you, God. They are perfect, I mean, PERFECT for me, in this odd in between stage, not clingy, and look ridiculously cute with a good pair of skinny jeans.
Now let's talk skinny jeans for a second. Clearly, they are still very much 'in' this Fall. You've all seen the pictures, with the leopard print flats, and long flowy top or sweater/cardigan. It's cute! In fact, I'm starting to think that a good pair of skinny jeans that fit me NOW may be a purchase I make to get me through the few months of awkward-in-between, so I can still be somewhat in style, you know?
Old Navy has these awesome Rockstar Jeans, that literally come in every shade of denim, including colors, and cords!
These are some of my favorite:
If only my legs looked that good. Sigh.
But how awesome would these jeans look with flats? Or boots? And a tank top with a long open cardigan and a scarf? I'm starting to think a pair of these is a key to my Fall Wardrobe this year. Despite having to buy them a few sizes larger than normal, I think it's an investment I'm willing to make.
So here's my basic take on Fall Fashion this year:
-a good pair of Old Navy Rockstar Jeans
-long, flowy tanks and basic layering tops
-cardigans, ones that can stay open, or button up depending on the look
-a chambray to pair with colored jeans
-a few poppy-colored/fun printed flats for a little statement
-scarves. scarves. scarves.
-can't forget a cute pair of earrings or a statement necklace
Overall, it seems like this year a good mix-n-match wardrobe is key. I'm down with that. Now, who wants to go shopping?
