Currently Craving: Fall Edition

In most parts of the country, fall is full swing ahead.  Although I'm loving the changing of the leaves, I can't say that I'm the biggest fan of the brisk weather.  It's so chilly in the morning!  Thankfully there are some pretty great fall items out in stores.  As you can see from my list below it's all about layering.  What I love about these pieces is that they are all super versatile and can be worn into winter as well!  Here's what I'm currently craving:

Faux Fur Trim Parka from Banana Republic

This is the quintessential casual fall coat.  I love the army green color and it incorporates one of the biggest upcoming trends, faux fur accents.  Throw it on over any outfit and go out and frolic in the foliage, you won't be cold!

Factory Novelty Quilted Puffer Vest from Jcrew Factory

Last fall I purchased this Excursion Quilted Vest from Jcrew and I've been living in it ever since. It's light enough for those days when it starts out chilly in the morning and warms up in the afternoon but it's also really easy to layer for cold days.  I just add a thick long sleeve shirt and a scarf for those colder days.  What I love about this vest is the herringbone pattern, how classic.

The problem that I find with booties is that they often cut off the leg which make for a totally unflattering look.  What I love about these ankle boots is that they are cut to give the leg the longest appearance possible.  These booties would pair well with tights and a skater skirt or with some super skinny black jeans.

Over-the-knee Socks from Forever 21

I'm all over the whole over-the-knee sock trend that's coming into style!  What a great way to still be able to wear a dress or a skirt but also keep your legs warm.  You can layer them over sheer tights for even more warmth.  Over-the-knee socks look great paired with both booties or knee high boots.

I can't believe that I don't own a flannel shirt, it's a fall wardrobe staple.  What I love about this flannel shirt is that it's so simple yet so chic.  I never thought that I would call a flannel shirt chic! I absolutely love how it's styled on the model in the image above.  I could also see myself wearing it open with a silky blouse underneath.

While I could add more to the list, these are the five pieces that I can't stop thinking about!  I've already indulged and purchased the booties and I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival in the mail but I'm still hoping to add more items from this list into my wardrobe.  What are you currently craving?

Trend of the Moment: The Poncho

The Burberry Colour Block Check Blanket Poncho has been spotted on anyone who is anyone. Trendsetters from Sarah Jessica Parker to Olivia Palermo have been seen dawning this hot ticket item.  While I'm not a total fan of the poncho look or the particular colors of this poncho, I don't mind the way that Olivia wore it.  It certainty looks cozy and those thigh high boots are killer!   I think part of the popularity of this poncho is it's versatility.  It can be worn as pictured below or it can be thrown on over a tee and jeans. Another neat thing about the item is that you can get it monogramed as Burberry now offers a monogramming service on many of their scarves.  Are you feeling the look?

Fun Faux Fur

The fur trend is absolutely one of my favorites of this season.  Ot's only going to continue to get bigger.  Fendi has been at the frontrunner of this trend for quite some time as fur accents are part of their signature look.  Look at Cara Delevigne rocking a fur bag, coat, shoes, and even hair in the image below from one of Fendi's runway shows.

Incorporating faux fur into your wardrobe can be a bit scary!  The easiest way to introduce fur into your wardrobe is to start with an accessory.  My favorite is the bag poof.  It's an easy way to change up the look of a handbag that you already have in your wardrobe.  Etsy has a great selection of these keychains if you are interested.

I think the second easiest way is to get into the trend is to throw on a faux fur vest, it adds a bit of a luxe touch to your fall/winter outfit.  It makes a great layering piece because it adds texture.  I have my eyes on this vest.

Some forecasters believe that the fur trend will make is way into spring.  I think it will be interesting to see how fur accents will be integrated into spring wardrobes.  How do you feel about fur?
