Fall Fashion Style Board

Fall is JUST around the corner and I couldn't be more excited... For like a billion reasons, but to name a few:

1. Having our new baby girl!!
2. All the fall scents and decor! Im a sucker for Bath & Body Works this time of year. I always use their air fresheners and soaps but this time of year I really love to buy the candles too. And I'm not really that into seasonal decor but I do like to add a few touches of fall here and there.
3. Football (official countdown till my first beer
 after baby- while watching The Colts has begun. I want an Oktoberfest and then I want a Blue Moon. I think I just drooled typing that.)
4. FALL FASHION

Lets just focus in on the fashion subject today, shall we? I hope to touch on all my Fall topics listed above over the next month though ;-) I'm about to come out of skin over wanting to be comfortable in a regular clothes. I'm hitting that point in pregnancy :-) but the fact that it's almost fall really amps up those feelings because this is my favorite season of the year and is also my favorite season to style.  

Ok so first thing we need to just go ahead and acknowledge that leggings rule the world.


 Especially the Mom world. So most of my outfits I'm sharing today are for Mama's who are looking for comfort first with a splash of actual style so they still feel put together even if all they do that day is change diapers, laundry, and bus stop. I've been slowly buying some new items here and there that I just can't wait to wear after I have the baby so today I'm just doing flat lay outfit combos since I can't exactly model some of my new stuff!! 





Leggings- LuLaRoe leggings are pretty amazing and soft. If you haven't heard of them you can find tons of style consultants all over Facebook. From crazy prints to my personal favorite of just solids you gotta at least try them! (I love a variety of other legging brands as well and def have to say that you get what you pay for. $10 at Target isn't going to fit and hold up nearly as nice as $25 + with Lularoe and Hue from Nordstrom etc. I personally recommend spending more so they aren't see through and so they fit great.)


Tops- Gotta make sure that behind is covered ladies! Tunics are your best friend. Layers on top of leggings are even better! Your sweater game needs to be strong ladies. I wear sweaters almost every single day so I will totally splurge one one or two really comfy sweaters each year. I did get my blue one above during the Nordstrom sale so I didn't pay that hefty full price but I think its literally so soft that its worth it. 

Shoes- Flats are a moms best friend. It's sad but true. I'm a heels girl at heart but it just doesn't work. I love leopard flats though. They are a total neutral and go with SO MUCH. These are cheap from Target 4 years ago. It has been on my wish list to buy a new more comfy pair for a solid year now. I think this is gonna be the year I pull the trigger.
The second it gets down in the 50's I usually start busting my UGGs. I love the classic Ugg boot.  Last year after a long stretch of like 8 years with my old ones, I got a new pair and chose the slim new style with a tiny bit of a wedge sole. I really REALLY like the fit of these guys!
And for another easy and super cute option to almost any outfit I included my white All Stars. They are so easy and add style to anything! 


If you really must wear a real outfit here are a couple outfits I'm dreaming of for this fall. 
** I urge you to consider if a "real" outfit is necessary though. lol Because jeans are just awful. Awful, I tell you. They sure look good but are they really worth me being at minimum 30% more grumpy and uncomfortable for the day? ;-)




Jeans- First of all- Gross! Just the feeling of wearing them. They look fab but I feel like I can't move in jeans. It kinda makes me a little bit crazy. But they are a necessary evil.....Like I said above though...always, always, ALWAYS, second guess if your day really demands you wear jeans. It is like my number one rule. lol (I know there are some of you that LOVE to wear jeans and I'm just really sorry but I think you are NUTS!) Carrying on....
 The actual jeans- I mean skinny is still going strong. (sadly) They pair great with booties and boots through fall and winter so you MUST own at least one pair. I love a bootcut or flare the most to actually wear BUT then you need to wear a wedge or a heel which basically doesn't work for most days as a Mom to little kids. So I end up back in the leg prisons of skinnies. <CRINGE> I bought these Vigoss jeans from the Nordstrom sale last month after seeing a few other bloggers talk such good things about Vigoss for a while now. As much as I love my leggings, I will def be doing a happy dance the day these zip up and fit :-)

Tops-I was recently at the mall and The Loft totally caught my eye...which is unusual because it's not really one of my go-to stores but I popped in... and then left a fair amount poorer. lol I got a few great tops and accessories. You might want to check out their selection right now! Really cute stuff!


and finally here are my fall wish list items!
