Fall Fashion

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, InStyle, Vogue and Elle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #inspirefallfasion http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Herringbone Vest - J. Crew Outlet (buy here before it sells out..again) | Plaid Shirt - GAP (similar, similar) | Skirt - J. Crew (on sale!) | Booties - Target (buy here) | Pearl Necklace - J. Crew (buy here


Whoever said Christmas is the most wonderful time of year lied.  It's fall, hands down.  From the beautiful foliage, to apple picking; from pumpkin flavored everything to football (duh) - there is just something about this time of year that puts a smile on my face.  But the best part of fall for me has always been the fashion.  I think my love of fall fashion originated when I was young.  The only good best part about summer coming to an end was going on shopping trips with my mom to pick out the perfect outfit for the first day back to school.  Those days are long gone, but I still get really excited when it is time to break out my fall wardrobe.  So when I saw that the fall fashion magazines were on the racks at Target, I snatched a few up without hesitation.  As an added bonus, if you buy any two Fall Fashion magazines (InStyle, ELLE, Vogue) by 9/13 you can get a $5 Target gift card (win, win)!  Although the temps are still hovering in the high 70s/low 80's, I was so inspired by all of the trends I saw in Vogue that I could not wait to break out my fall wardrobe a little early.  In any good autumn ensemble, layers are a must and much like last year, plaid continues to be a must-have pattern for the season.  I kept cool by offsetting the layers in this outfit with a skirt and open-toe booties.  I am in love with this look, and now that I've dipped my toe into fall fashion, there's no going back!

  1. Fall fashion has always been my favorite too. What's better than a extra cozy cardigan and curling up with a good book and some hot chocolate...not much, in my opinion. haha!

  2. Saw this in IG and I love it! Plaid is my favorite (as evidenced by my post today) and this is so perfect paired with that vest. I love fall! No if only it would cool off here...

  3. loving this outfit! It's the perfect beginning of fall outfit. I tried to buy that vest years ago at J.Crew but it was sold out. This outfit is so preppy and I'm loving it! I also love your table with the magazines and jewelry on it too!

    1. I was lucky - I scored the vest during a 50% off sale so it was only like $55 (amazing!) xo

  5. Love your outfit girl! That skirt and that top are fall perfection! Love that necklace too! I used to love going school shopping with my mom (or at least I think I did, I have to ask her lol). I can't wait to get my hands on these magazines! I'm always looking for some great inspiration!

  9. You look so adorable Danielle! I've been craving fall clothes like mad lately. It's still in the 80s and 90s so the less clothes the better at the moment! Back to school shopping was my favorite too!

    1. Oh wow - definitely too hot to be wearing this kind of outfit where you are!!! It's crazy, it was 90 here on Saturday and 50 when I left for work this morning - I don't think Massachusetts can decide if it wants to be in summer or fall ;)

  10. Hey Gorgeous sorry I have been MIA but I am definitely catching up and pinning all your latest looks cause I love them all. You nailed this Fall Outfit. I adore the vest and necklaces and could use more plaid shirts, too. I too love Fall especially for Fashion.

    And speaking of Fall, I nominated you for the Very Aspiring Blogger Award where I talk about my love for Fall - you can read all about that on the link below.
