Cue The Cute Accessories!

This week I had some extra time in my schedule so of course I had to jump on the chance to check out the new arrivals from all of my favorites! I am totally smitten with fall clothes. Cozy sweaters, cute booties, and lots of layering- I just can't get enough! While it is still far from fall weather, I like to stock up while I can. It gives me something to look forward to [hello bonfires + pumpkin spice lattes!].  I hate to say it chickadees, but all of my favorite retailers kind of let me down.  Let's just say I was a little less than impressed after dragging a few pieces to the fitting rooms. My wallet will thank me this time around though, that's for sure!

Don't get me wrong, I love the oversized sweaters and neutral colors for layering purposes, but I promise you sister, you will not see an oxblood hue on this little lady! No ma'am! Never ever! Where are the happy hues? Clearly no where to be found this season.  

Have I ever mentioned how petite I am? Just 5'0" to be exact. What's a gal to do when this season is all about proportion play? I understand the trend and am all about comfort, but what I'm not about lovely ladies, is looking frumpy. Oversized anything is not always a winner-winner in my book.  I think I'll go back to the basics this season and stick to my classic pieces like button ups, cardigans, and Tippi sweaters.  

While it may seem like a total drag, I think this seasons trends will be a fabulous time for me to regroup my personal style and invest in pieces that truly speak to me! Goodbye impulse purchases! Cue the cute accessories! One of my most favorite ways to express my personality is through accessories. Adorable flats, colorful poms, happy hued bags, and snazzy jewels.  I have mentioned before  how versatile they are in creating a variety of looks. While I do believe there is a fine line between just enough and too much accessorizing, I am envisioning neutral pieces paired with accessories that add a pop of color this fall season for this gal!  

Take a peek at a few of my must-have accessories for this season:

  1. I feel the same way! I love j.crew but they aren't doing anything new and exciting lately.

    1. I am SO glad that I am not the only one that feels this way! A new collection comes out on the 18th so I am hoping a couple pieces will come in that I love!
