Favorite Fall Trends

If you look at today's trends it seems to have a common theme -- mixing the unconventional. A few years back if I saw someone wearing red and hot pink I'll have to admit, I would have thought they dressed in the dark! Polka dots and stripes, stripes and leopard, whites after Labor Day, shorts in the winter-- I am sure even a few came to your mind as well that I am missing. 

Now a days I can't get enough of color blocking, mixing patterns and you all have already seen I am a firm believer of bringing whites into fall! I have put together a few of the fall trends I just can't get enough of. I have a few outfits planned out based on some of these fun trends -- coming very soon! 

Tights with Shorts/Dresses
I absolutely love leggings, tights and stockings. What better way to get wear out of all of those cute summer shorts and dresses then to pair them with some tights and a scarf! 

I really wish I could say I had a pair. I am a little nervous about trying to pull this trend off because, lets face it, we have all seen it not pulled off so well. I bought a pair of high waisted leather shorts last fall and have yet to wear those bad boys...however, I have thought of a great wear to pair them with some tights so stay tuned for that look! 


Checkered Button Ups
I am head over heals for these blue and white checkered button ups I am seeing everywhere! I know J. Crew carries a style but I just can't seem to get myself to spend $70+ on this top. If you have found one I would love to hear about it! I will surely be continuing my search! 

White Jeans 
My beloved white jeans- would you laugh at me if I admitted to owning 3 pair? Oh and 4 pairs of white shorts..throw in a couple white skirts too. Sigh. I just can't get enough! With that much white there is no way I could leave them behind come Labor Day. I found some great pictures of ladies continuing this trend over into fall with some warm colors and cute boots- perfection! 


Mixing Patterns 
I adore this idea of being able to mix two different patterns! My personal favorites are stripes and polka dots, and of course adding leopard to just about anything! 

I have a few outfits lined up to show you some affordable and practical ways to wear these trends to work and on the weekends so make sure to check back!

As always, don't forget to check out my twitter, instagram and pinterest! All of these pictures can be found on my 'Passion for Fasion' board on pinterest!
