Fall clothing makes me happy. Just look at the smile on my face! In fact, Fall, in general, makes me happy. I love the crisp mornings and afternoons, and I love it when the mountains turn the gorgeous shades of yellow, orange, and red. I live deep in the mountains of Virginia, and the road snakes through the mountains for miles and miles. As soon as you go around a curve, you see another mountain in front of you. The view of the leaves is incredible when they are fully turned.
There are years when the leaves strut their colors, and then there are years when then are blah. I read those warm sunny days with cool but not freezing nights, is what brings out the brighter colors. However, early frosts and dry soils can mute the colorful displays. We haven’t had any frosts so far this year, but until yesterday, it has been horribly dry. The leaves are still very lack-luster this year, but I have my fingers crossed that they will surprise me later. Those of you who live in the northern states like Vermont and Maine, let us know if the leaves have started to show their beautiful Fall shades.
I liked this leopard print cardigan. It is what they call an eyelash style cardigan, which means that it is fuzzy. I ordered this when Nordstrom had their anniversary sale back in July. It was sooo hot then, but I am glad that I ordered when it was on sale. I love the casual look of the cardigan with a black camisole and jeans. It looks “put together” and causal at the same time. I am wearing a size medium, but I could have sized up so that it would be easier to layer under the cardigan. Think about how you intend to wear the cardigan before you order.
You can’t see in this photo, but I am wearing the Bennett earrings. These earrings match the Cooper necklace that I have on today. Both of these items have the mustard feather, and this is a duo that you will see me wearing a lot this fall. My bracelets are the Kellyjean, (small leather) and the Rochelle, (leopard cuff), but the gold one is no longer available.
Bootcut jeans are a favorite in the Fall and Winter months. I can easily wear boots under the jeans without the extra bulk. These jeans are by Kut From The Kloth, and I bought these at the Nordstrom sale also. I hope you gurls took advantage of the sale when it was running. If you didn’t take advantage of that sale, then make sure that you grab a few specials the next time they have a huge sale. Here is the link for Petite and Regular, and here is the link for Plus size.
Ladies, I want to thank all of you for helping me grow my Instagram. My goal is 50,000 followers, and I don’t like that many, so keep telling others about my feed. NOW, it is time to concentrate on the blog. I am going to give away a $50.00 gift certificate every Monday morning for the previous week’s entries. Here is how you enter…you tell someone you know to check out my blog and leave a comment telling me that you shared my blog with your friend. This is the honor system, and you can enter as many times as you like. You just have to tell a different friend for each entry. You get bonus points if they sign up for my email also, so be sure to let me know if that happens!!!
