Since temperatures have started to head into preferable ranges I have had a blast dressing for the new fall season.  I have always been addicted to button down shirts and mad for plaid.  My new loafer obsession has kicked into high gear and I’ll be on the lookout for a nice pair at a reasonable price (or on sale).  New booties have been found (at Marshalls for $20!!  High five!).  Boots pulled from the closet and dusted off, made for walking, have been making a debut as well.  Scarves, oh scarves…  I can’t explain how excited I get to dress for milder temperatures.  Recent wears:

My new loves.  Extremely soft on the inside with a fur lining, just enough Western flair stitching mixed with a more modern shape, and a color that I can make go with anything.  For twenty bucks, that’s a steal.

My H&M Fall Picks

If you want to know what Kathryn would wear, you’re in luck.  College football season has kicked off and I’m sitting front row on my couch with a nice fall brew, homemade buffalo chicken dip & chips, and my laptop on my lap with my fall picks in mind.  I love browsing and online shopping while watching television.  I have been searching websites for my top fall picks and making mental notes for some future outfits.  Here are my picks from H&M:

Casual, dress up/down, layering, mixing textures, & dark jewel tones are catching my attention.

Swimsuit Dreamin’

Since I’ll be taking a vacation at the beach in a couple months I needed to get a swimsuit – or two.  I found some bottoms from J Crew on major, MAJOR sale (this particular one shown below was 19.99 after the additional 40% off).  I love the mix & match look of a solid top or bottom with a printed opposite.  I will be spending the next few weekends trying to find the perfect solid black top to complement the bottoms that I ordered.  I really like this black top and would love to find something similar.  I’m on a mission!

I put together a visual packing list of what I will need to take to the beach; it helps me to know what else I need to get.  On the list?  A floppy hat, beach shoes, and a cover-up.  There are so many options for cover-ups now.  The market is saturated with choices.  I really like the sheer sundress or tunic looks because they are so easy to throw on and jet into a store or have lunch on a patio without feeling like you don’t actually have clothes on.  On the other hand, I love the original sarong style cover that can be worn just to cover the hips or tied higher to cover the entire chest and torso.  These large scarves are usually bright and bold with so many patterns and colors to choose from.  It’s an additional accessory to your swimsuit rather than hiding it.  This particular one shown below is a large scarf from H&M specifically for that purpose.  Any other ideas?

Four Ways – H&M Shorts

My friend Amanda and I have the same H&M floral shorts. We were talking about how cute they are the other day and she mentioned she wasn’t sure what she should wear with them – thus, a post was born. Even though these shorts are patterned and could be considered hard to pair with items, when you start putting outfits together and brainstorming, you can see they are very versatile. I try not to purchase something unless I can see myself wearing it, at minimum, 3 different ways. I like to have items I can mix and match and wear often (let’s get our money’s worth, ladies).  I went with a casual option and a dressier option (for a day date or the like) and two other day-to-day choices. I also thought of weather changes and looked for short sleeve and long sleeve items. These floral shorts can go from early spring to early fall if you really get creative. Enjoy!
