A peek at fall trends with Molly

Guess what?! I have a fantastic blog friend to introduce to you today! She's a fashion blogger with a big heart and a sweet sense of style. If her southern charm doesn't get you, I think her love for finding and sharing a coupon will! Molly is currently writing a series on money management that I just adore and today she's hanging out to talk about my very favorite season, fall with the trends she's spotted.


You guys, I am so excited to be over here guest posting for Beth today. Beth is one of the sweetest people I have ever "met" online (I mean that in the least creepy way possible). But seriously she's awesome. So, I was honored when she asked me to guest post for her today!

Oh, I'm Molly and I blog over at still being [molly] - a little corner of the interwebs where I talk about my faith, and fashion, and life. I don't take myself too seriously, so if you do, you're not welcome. I'm just kidding. JOKES. JOKES. See? Not serious.

Moving on.

I am here to talk a little bit about FALL. It's been too dang hot down here in North Carolina - so I've been daydreaming of fall for a while now. There are always trends that come and go (and I'll address those here, too...).

BUT for now, I want to address this outfit.

This outfit you see here is what I call my classic fall outfit. A pair of cuffed jeans, flats, and a classic oxford shirt. I have these Ralph Lauren oxfords in like five colors... I've had them FOREVER. Like, YEARS. A long, long time. They hold up so well and they're just a classic, clean, preppy look.

You can dress them up, dress them down, doesn't matter. They go with EVERYTHING.

[Blouse: Ralph Lauren Outlet, Jeans: Old Navy, Flats: Local Boutique]

Now, let's talk FALL 2012 trends. We're seeing a lot of the spring and summer trends transition into fall (lace, studs, etc.).

I was walking around the mall the other day and stopped into LOFT and took a couple pics of some of their new fall items that show some of the other trends we are seeing.

1. Blouses. Blouses. Blouses. I love blouses, they've been HUGE this summer and of course they are great pieces to go into fall. But the colors are more muted now - lots of greys, blacks, whites, maroons.


2. Animal prints! Who doesn't love a good animal print? I know I do! And we are seeing animal prints EVERYWHERE. And a blouse + animal print? TREND HEAVEN.


3. Shift dresses! Mod-eqsue shift dresses are HUGE. You can wear them with boots, a cardigan, blazer... you name it. OH, and an animal print shift dress? Trendy central.


4. PLEATS. Accordion pleats are not your grandmother's pleats. They're hot. I love them. So classy and lady-like. And a colorblocked, pleated, SHIFT dress? Amazing. Love.


SO, that's a little snippet of what we're seeing this fall. Thank you SO much to Beth for having me. And, if y'all ever want to come visit my side of the interwebs, I'd be happy to have you! :)

All for now.
