Why do we love fall clothes so much? Maybe it is because a sweater and boots require much larger shopping bags so we feel like we are getting more for our money, or maybe it is because down South our temps are in the 90’s more than they are not or maybe it is because fall fashion offers layers and color and fur and boots. Did I already say boots? I do love boots. Whatever the reason for loving the styles brought on by this change of season, Belk is here to help a sister out. Join me next Thursday October 8th from 5:00 until 8:30 at Belk at the Summit (or your local Belk store) for a Girls’ Night Out. Not only will there be 20% off almost everything in the store, but a DJ will be on hand bumpin’ tunes, (I learned the term “bumpin” from Michael Strahan the other day on Kelly & Michael, I’m not that hip.) delicious handcrafted refreshments and bites will be served up, hourly giveaways will be going down and I will be on hand to help you sort through falls latest trends.

There are so many looks found on the Runway for Fall 2015 that will easily translate into our closets.  Puffer coats, winter florals, flared jeans, shearling and statement earrings are all included in this seasons trends. The items from Belk I have picked that are featured above represent the 70’s vibe that is everywhere with suede, felt and fringe. Chunky sweaters and turtlenecks are “in” as is the Pantone Color of the Year, “Marsala.”  How easy would it be to throw on this outfit and be perfectly comfy, warm and stylish? It’s a potential uniform for me. Oh and don’t forget Belk’s makeup artist will also be hand to update your cosmetic game.

#Basic. Basic is a term used by people younger than me to describe a person or action or thing, and it is not a compliment. Urban Dictionary defines the modern day slang as something that is obvious, predictable or transparent. I would probably be more likely to use the term “vanilla,” or if I had not gone to a state school, I might use “pedestrian.” Basically, “basic” is not good. #Duh.

Unless you are like me and not in your 20’s…for me “basic” is good and it makes my complicated life a little more manageable.  The outfit in the pictures above is basic and I am okay with that. Basic clothes which could also be termed as “classic” enable me to think less about what I am wearing and more about what’s for dinner, how am I going to get to Pure Barre, get to the grocery store, fit in everything else I have to do in a day before carpool…and still look put together.

We actually took these pictures late last winter but I could leave this outfit just the same or update the accessories and I still have a look that is presentable and won’t embarrass my child at Teacher Time Out.  Actually, Alice would be disappointed in the lack of feathers, sequins and pink in any outfit I wear, but since I’m not dressing for my 8 year old it is all good.

Today is the first day of fall and I am starting to feel a chill in the air so let’s break this get up down. I’m wearing a v-neck sweater from Target that is super cheap, or you could go for a more expensive cashmere version that would be timeless.  The black silk Equipment Signature button down I have on is an investment piece but it is in heavy rotation this time of year.  I’m wearing skinny jeans and OTN boots, but boyfriend jeans or Gap’s girlfriend jeans with booties would work, or the super trendy cropped flares would be great with the even more trendy lace-up flats.  My favorite cross body bag from last season is this Kelly Wynne number but it could be updated with some fringe or a saddle bag.
