Happy Labor day! Isn’t it great to have a day off from work (I’m hoping you have the day off)? Of course, even though I’m home today there’s lots of work I need to do around my house. Yuck!

I’m going to do some organizing and cleaning and then we’re headed to a birthday party for my Dad. I thought I’d share some fall fashion inspiration with you today. I would love to add similar looks to my fall wardrobe.

Here are 8 Fall Outfits To Inspire You. These are some of the hottest trends of the season!

This is from Ann Taylor and like the navy and black combination. I also like the oversized handbag.

This is also from Ann Taylor and of course I love that animal print skirt.

One of the hot trends this fall is the houndstooth print. I love, love, love it!! This outfit is from Banana Republic.

I picked this top because of the faux leather on the shoulder. Leather is a hot trend but I probably won’t be sporting all leather pants but I could definitely pop it on my shoulders. (I’m not sure where I found this.)

The military look is “in” and I’d love to add a blazer like this to my fall wardrobe. (I’m not sure where I found this jacket.)

Stripes are still popping up everywhere and this dress is adorable. This is from White House Black Market.

5 Fabulous Fall Fashion Trends

5 Fabulous fall fashion trends
I’ve been looking at a lot of fall fashion over the last several weeks and I’ve found some items that I reeeeeeeally need want. These are my 5 fabulous fall trends that I’m going to try to purchase over the next several months.

All of these items are from Banana Republic and if I had the money, I’d walk in and buy them today. But that’s not going to happen. I might get one or two at Banana Republic, if I can find them on sale. More than likely, I’ll be shopping at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s and looking for items that are similar but at a much better price.

I’ve seen these animal print coats at several stores and I love them. If I don’t purchase it myself, I’ll add it to my Christmas list. In other words, I’ll buy it, wrap it, put it under the tree and put a gift tag on it that says, “To Cyndi, From Wayne”.

Leopard Print Coat

Short boots are everywhere too and I really like this style. I know some of you have said you don’t like them, but they’re growing one me.

Black bootie

Pointed toe flats are back and I’m wanting a pair of them. I love this classic look!chain flats

What I Wore-July 2013

***I’m still working on the ads that are floating on my site, they should NOT be doing that! It would help me if you could tell me what you’re seeing! I promise I will get his fixed!!

Do you remember last week when I wrote my post, When Life Happens? I shared about some things going on in our families life and how busy this week would be. Well, this week is here! Yikes!

Courtney, Chris and Colt Allen are moving out today (I’ve gotten use to them being here and now I want to cry!). Cory, our son, is in Columbus, Ohio taking the Law Bar examination.

I’m leaving tomorrow morning for the Haven Conference in Atlanta, Georgia and our first foreign exchange student is flying in on Friday night.

Whew!! Things are a little crazy around my house! 

I hope you don’t mind if I do a re-cap of  What I Wore-July 2013 post. These are the outfits I posted over the past month. Is July really over? Are you kidding me?

Tie It Together Thursday-Adding Accessories

Tie It Together Thursday

I’m excited about my new feature, Tie It Together Thursday! This is where you send me a picture of an outfit and I add the accessories.

I’m NOT a professional stylist. Just a girl who loves to accessorize! It’s fun to take an ordinary outfit and make it pop!

Krista, sent me this Ann Taylor dress~~It. is. adorable! She only paid $25 for it! But I do think it needs some accessories to make it pop. I love the square neckline and the silver zipper.

Tie It Together Thursday

So here’s how I styled it. Black & white is on trend so I went with that color scheme. When wearing a square neckline, I like to stay with a choker style necklace. This neckline definitely draws your eye straight to the neck.

Tie It Together Thursday

I love these Enzo Angiolini’s pumps. They are the perfect mix. They combine the comfortable height of a mid-heel with the trendiness of a cap toe. Macy’s $130 (I know a little expensive but they looked so good with this dress).

Tie It Together Thursday

Krista had mentioned wearing a black boot to take this look into fall. Here I paired the outfit with a  Nine West Metra Bootie. Its sleek and sassy style will dress up your look in no time. DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse) $74.95

Accessorizing a Chevron Dress

Accessorizing A Chevron Dress

One of the things I love to do, is to accessorize an outfit. I use to not put much effort into accessorizing but the last several years I’ve realized that to make an outfit really pop, accessorizing is a must.

That’s why I was super excited when Richella, a friend of mine who happens to have an amazing blog called Imparting Grace, sent me this picture of a dress she said she needed help accessorizing. I quickly jumped at the offer!

I love the dress, it’s perfect for summer but I think a few accessories would make this dress look fabulous. Obviously the dress already makes a statement with the chevron pattern so I think it only needs one other statement piece. We don’t want to over do it.

Accessorizing a Chevron Dress

I found this gorgeous necklace at Francesca’s (which is one of my favorite stores to buy jewelry). It has the navy blue and yellow in it but it also has some other colors. The dress and the necklace are our statement pieces and so everything else needs to be neutral. You can find the necklace here. Price $28.00

Accessorizing a Chevron Dress

I found these strappy nude sandals at Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW) and thought they would be adorable with this dress. You can find them here. Price $49.99.

Maxi Skirt Fashion For Women Over 40

What I Wore-My Style

You’ve probably noticed all the maxi skirt fashion for spring and summer. Some of you have emailed me and asked if women over 40 can wear them. Can I just say “Yes!” This is a great trend for women over 40!

The key is knowing how to style them for your body type. If you are thin with slender hips you can wear them with your shirts tucked in or tied at the waist.

But if you’re like me, and you’re curvy in your hip area then it’s better to leave your shirt out, in my opinion. If I tied a know at my waist, it would accentuate my hips and they don’t need any accentuating!
