im sweating yet the mall is selling sweaters?!

hellllo lovers! first off thank you so much to everyone who linked up yesterday for the 1st click a pic challenge! I really appreciate all the support! So today we're gonna forget that its summer & we're all dying of heat & talk about my favorite time of the year - FALL

But besides all of that i LOVE fall clothes...the sweaters, boots, scarfs, jackets...fall shopping is my favorite but its defiantly something that is hard to do while its 90 degrees out & you're shopping trying on sweaters & pants while sweat drips down your face....just me?...ok moving on...still, I will never understand why the stores find it necessary to start putting out fall clothes in July, it can be hard for people to get in the fall mindset...most are still buying swim suits & maxi dresses.....even weirder do you know they already are buying for Summer 2013?! Crazy right?!

According to Harpers Bazaar this fall 2012 you will see a lot of clothes "with a retro mix of florals & lace, knit tweeds & yes, shawls making the sartorial cut. Chic sportsmanship will be of importance as well, especially when channeling the great outdoors or reveling in the new take on military......fur accents & elegant embroidery. And a host of cool options in the way of black leather or all-white means there will definitely be something for everyone.  - via

So today I'm going to help you get into the fall mindset & give you a head start on what the trends are for this upcoming fall 2012 season. So let's get started!

The color that I am seeing everywhere for this year is Tangerine- its the hot color this fall so be sure to add something tangerine to your wardrobe this fall.

Polk-a-dots are another fun trend this fall...but not just in blouses, everywhere!

The colored pants trend is still in however the pants are transiting from bright neon colors to more deeper & darker colors, for example a dark red or dark purple.

Another trend I am seeing everywhere is embellishment on the shoes! To be honest I am not a huge fan of this trend, maybe with the right pair of shoes with a few studs but overall this trend is one I will not be partaking in...

However, as usual my favorite trend this fall is the short booties...or as the fashion world calls it the "crop"...i am beyond obsessed...& i already purchased my perfect pair...don't worry ill show you them soon...but I def recommend investing in a pair of crop booties & the best part is they have a variety to choose from!

Purses.....ahh do i love thee..so there are 2 kinds of purses I am seeing that are going to be big for Fall 2012...we've got the Satchel & the Mini Crossbody

Ok so far we've got tangerine something, dark colored pants, crop booties, a mini crossbody, some polk a dots & now lets round out the outfit with a fabulous jacket! And this season its all about leather & tweed!

So if you've noticed I don't talk much about styling accessories...its not that I don't wear jewelry its just I usually wear my staple pieces for everyday and then if I'm going somewhere it depends on what I'm wearing & ill fancy it up more with some accessories....but one trend I am seeing is 'oval' pieces, for example Tory Burch, Kate Spade & Marc by Marc all have the oval look this fall season

So what do you think of the "oval" look? I am loving all of Tory's jewelry right now its beyond fabulous!

Okay so that's my fall forecast for this season! Just to round it up here are some fall trends I will defiantly be taking part in -
tangerine, leather, polk a dots, crop booties, mini crossbody, dark skinnies & maybe I'll add some oval pieces to the wardrobe

What will you be adding to your wardrobe this fall? Are there any trends your not a fan of this season? What's your favorite trend for fall? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

All those clothes are so nice, but living in Miami lets me continue my Spring/Summer outfits til the next year's looks come out, which is still fun. :)

Wht a great fashion post and so informative. You know your stuff Kelly. It's nice to see a fashion blogger actually keeping up with the trends and not pretending to know. Mm

Shelley said...

I love the dark purple pants!! I have a leather jacket already but maybe now I need tangerine and some cropped booties!

No(dot dot)el said...

Fall is my fav too. Love the smell of cinnamon and spice candles, pumpkin pie, and the colors.. the glorious colors that the trees turn. Yay only a few more months!!

Loving all the fall trends....I am most looking forward to wearing my riding boots again. I am a little nervous about my upcoming outfit posts because it just doesn't get cold here and I barely have any fall/winter stuff. I mean it's like summer in Texas 8 months out of the year!

ah this got me excited for fall! as much as i loooooove summer, I love fall/winter clothes WAY MORE! I never understood why they put the fall clothes out so soon either, but i guess its a good time to get summer items on sale! my favorite thing to wear in the fall is uggs, jeans, and zip ups hahaa but i think this fall i am going to branch out more!! well yeah.

I want the purple pants. No I NEED them.


Danielle said...

Ohh you are making me so excited for fall! I'm tired of this hot weather {and it hasn't even been that bad this summer} and I want to wear these clothes! I'm not a huge fan of the embellished shoes either unless they're done right. Can't wait for fall!! :)

I'm so glad tangerine is in!! That's one of my favorite colors. AND polka dots - yay for cooler weather! :)

Kathrin@shopschoolsleep said...

ugh back to school shopping is a headache. I can't find the right pants because all i want are shorts!! And NOW it's summer weather...did you notice the spike in temp? Or is the beach a nice high 70's? anyways..I just bought polka dots today!! yay!!And how is Tangerine any different from coral? or it that just me? Great post!!

Jess said...

I'm totally feeling the polka dots and tweed jackets! Even though it is still 100 degree in Texas, I think the fall collections are taking us to happier places of dreaming of fall. Tee hee!

Janna Renee said...

I am swooning over EVERYTHING. I lust for fall...for the weather, the clothes, and the hubby coming home!! I want some of the cute "riding" boots...you know that flat ones? BUT I refuse to buy the cheap ones that have weird heels, unflattering toe shapes or don't hug your calf. I HATE when people wear them, and they are "off". Does that make sense?

Holly said...

I love the trends you picked out. I will hopefully be embracing them too! I'm excited for fall shopping! It's my favorite time of year!
