We’re expecting a bit cooler weather this weekend and even though it won’t be cool enough to pull out my fall clothes, I’m really excited about putting away the sandals and pulling out my scarves and boots. As someone who likes to layer my clothing during the colder months, I also don’t wont to be over-layered or too hot so one of the hottest fashion trends for fall is going to work perfectly for me…
There are so many reasons to love a long vest. It’s the perfect alternative to a chunky cardigan, a stylish option to replace a blazer, they can be worn with jeans or slacks and they are easy to style with flats or boots.
Here are a few of my favorite long vest styles for fall and how I’d wear them:
Style #1: I’d pair this black and white vest with a long sleeve black turtleneck or tee, a classic pair of denim jeans and and a pair of ankle boots.
Style #2: A crisp white shirt, black pants and an animal print loafer would be the perfect pieces to wear with this classic grey duster vest.
Style #3: To keep this teal, purple and white stripe from looking too dark and heavy, I’d wear it with a black tee and lighter wash boyfriend jeans.
Style #4: This black vest has a more polished look to it so it can be dressed up or down. I love the combo in the photo–classic white shirt, denim and an animal print scarf.
I’ve got a bunch of projects to do this weekend but I hope to do a little on-line shopping during the evenings and a long vest will definitely be on the shopping list.

Enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you back here next week.

When it comes to fashion, fall has to be my favorite time of year. Unlike any other season, fall fashion in general is more timeless and classic which means your wardrobe does not have to go through a major overall from year to year. I love classic pieces like cable knit sweaters, cashmere cardigans and leather ankle boot. Even with all the classic elements, as someone who loves fashion, I always look to incorporate a trend or two into my seasonal wardrobe. This year it seems that leopard prints will continue to reign as one of fall’s hottest trends so I’m on the hunt for a few pieces to add to my closet.
While traveling back from Alabama on Sunday, I did a little online shopping and found some really cute and really affordable pieces.
Here are my top leopard print fall fashions and accessories, all under $100!
You can never go wrong with a pencil skirt and this piece is a great way to add this style trend into your wardrobe without investing a lot of money– Pencil Skirt $24.95
I adore this Short Sleeve Blouse $34.95 and think the leather sleeves make it a home run for fall
Scarves are one of the easiest ways to add a fashion trend into your wardrobe and leopards prints are a great option because the pattern works with solids, plaids and stripes–Leopard Print Scarf$18.00
I typically don’t buy handbags with i n light leather color but the leopard accent and cognac leather bottom on this tote really make it stand out–Leopard Print Tote $88.00
My narrow foot makes finding and wearing flats a real challenge but I want to give these a try because they are adorable and they are priced right– Leopard Print Flat $49.95
And for all of us that tend to wear a lot of black during the fall and winter months, I think a leopard print belt is the perfect accent to jazz up an outfit– Animal Print Belt $39.00
So, have you started shopping for fall yet? If you come across any cute leopard print pieces drop me an email and let me know.
