Fall fashion essentials

The chilly mornings have officially signaled the start of Fall, and even though the weather is cooler and beach days are over, I spend all year looking forward to fall fashion! Cozy sweaters, layers and boots can now be worn while strolling through Gyro Park admiring the changing leaves with a pumpkin spice latte keeping your hands warm - can you tell that I love this time of year?

I know this Thanksgiving I'm thankful for fall fashion and warm layers! With the turkey holiday coming up in a few days I'm here to help you feel comfortable and stylish while visiting with family and entertaining guests.

With the changing of leaves also comes the changing of colors in our wardrobes. This is a good weekend to pack away the neons, bold colors, and glitter, and turn your fashion focus to the subtle and calming autumn colors of rust, orange, oatmeal and mustard. Add textures like knits, velvet-like corduroy, tweeds and plaids, and layer it all up for a warm and appropriate ensemble.

If you need to be a little bit more dressed up, just add heels, a statement necklace, bracelets, or earrings and dark red lips for the perfect combination of cozy country club chic!

I hope these outfits have inspired you to stay warm, cozy, and fashionable this Thanksgiving season!
