Welcome back Fashion’s Finest! Hope everyone had a wonderful summer. If you’re like me, you’re ready to toss out the summer wear and bring in the crisp, cool clothes of fall. Whether you’re mourning the loss of your favorite white jeans, or getting out your sweaters for the first sign of cool weather, you’re in for a real treat this season.

It’s back to the basics. Look out for warm, neutral colors mixed with edgy pieces that contrast textures and mix sophistication with the classics. Nothing too over-the-top though – this season calls for simplicity. I can’t deny it, I love this style. Think skinny jeans, gladiator heels, a simple sweater, an oversized watch and a chunky necklace. Classic. Or, try a military jacket paired with rolled up khaki pants, a brown belt, and a leather satchel. A third option for the trendsetters out there: pair a sequined skirt with a studded belt and a cargo-style tunic (tucked in, of course) complete with a pair of clogs… yes, you heard me, clogs. What’s one word to describe all of these looks? Iconic.

Over the next couple of months, I hope to use this blog to share with you my passion.  The world of fashion is my escape, my fantasy. I am by no means an expert at fashion, or blogging, for that matter. But this is something I really enjoy, and I hope the information I share might be beneficial to you in some way!

Send me pictures, links, ideas…whatever catches your eye. I’d love your feedback!

I’ll try to incorporate a designer of the week for each post as well.

Until next time,
