Cozy in the wind

It’s finally fall weather! Love! My Mom and I went to Valley Fair Mall last week to check out the fall merchandise, and see if anything has started to arrive for the holidays. Normally in October, we start seeing holiday merchandise, such as nail polish; this year holiday beauty collections have not arrived yet. I am patiently waiting. . .

The fall merchandise was plentiful and cozy looking. I was so thankful the outside weather matched what we saw inside the stores. There was a lot of wind, and cool, moderate temperatures. Perfect weather for wearing a cardigan sweater and a scarf.

We wandered into several stores and eventually stopped for lunch at Bamboo Sushi. OMG! It was SO GOOD! For an appetizer, we tried the cauliflower, and it was delicious. They coated it in a yummy black bean sauce and spices. I am addicted, and definitely need to return for more cauliflower! I also enjoyed a couple sushi rolls. So good! If you are local, be sure to try out Bamboo Sushi next time you head to Valley Fair. It’s so worth it!

I’m sorry I don’t have a photo of the cauliflower, please trust me on how delicious it was! This photo is Ikura Nigiri and the box roll. So good!

Can we chat about this sweater really quick? It is incredibly good quality and the stitching is so well done. Can you believe it is priced under $100? I had to pinch myself when I saw how good the price was. It also comes in a few other colors. I’m tempted to pick up another one in a different hue. It’s so good!

I also want to quickly give a shout-out to these lug sole boots. I purchased them last year, and they were so popular, they are still on the market! These boots happen to be water resistant, and very comfortable. I could walk in them for days! Plus, the lug sole look is still very much on trend; especially with the huge 1990s influences we are seeing in fashion this year. These boots are affordable, and will work well throughout the fall, winter, and spring seasons. If you didn’t pick up a pair last year, and you need boots, I recommend picking up this pair!

fall street style trends

Although it is the heart of the fall season, we are starting to trend towards the holiday season. This year, more people will travel for the holidays and be able to gather for holiday events and parties. This could be why green is such a popular color this season! Not only is green fabulous for fall, it carries into the holiday season without skipping a beat. Love that!

These statement earrings are classic, and work well year after year. The green hue is also perfect right now, as green happens to be the color of the moment. Of course, as you know, green carries into the holiday season, so these earrings are a great investment. Love!

Leather and faux leather are hot this season. If you have been watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, then you know all about those “ugly leather pants!” Well, those “ugly leather pants” may have been purchased and worn a year ago, but this season they are a hot IT item. Personally, I think they are fabulous and I have my eye on a pair as we speak. You can check them out below-

Shop the “ugly leather pants” I am eyeing, which are faux leather, and a peek at holiday:

Well, faux leather and leather are popping up on more than just those “ugly leather pants.” This black top has faux leather trim and it is the perfect weight for fall. Plus, it has a vintage silhouette; giving it an instant cool factor. Love it!

Pouch handbags are still hot, and a soft alternative to the structured hobo. This one, which happens to be priced under $1000, is a hot IT item and quite roomy. If you haven’t snapped one up yet, what are you waiting for?

Well, that’s what’s hot right now. What are you loving?

Wearing: sunglasses / fall lipstick / large hoop earrings / statement ring / black long sleeve top / structured hobo bag (IT bag under $1000) / G buckle belt / fall nail polish / dark wash skinny jeans / lug sole loafers /

Every season I have a favorite black top, and pair of jeans; this is my fall go-to look for cooler days! This top is made with a thicker fabric than your average tee, so it is perfect on cool days when I need a little more than a tee. Plus, it has faux leather details on the sleeves, making it on trend. Love that!

I just picked up these jeans, and find myself wearing them often. They are really soft and comfortable; plus, I love how they fit. You might just see me in these jeans often during the fall and winter seasons!

This is the casual fall outfit I wore out to lunch with my friend Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun a couple weeks ago. She had a day off from work, and since my schedule is super flexible, we were able to meet up for lunch! Love that!

We window shopped around Santana Row and enjoyed a yummy and healthy lunch at Veggie Grill. I ate my favorite meal from their menu, the Santa Fe Chicken. So good!

Did you see my review for the new Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag? If not, be sure to check it out. This bag is really comfortable to wear, and it fits everything I need on daily basis. I love how this neutral hue pops against the black top and dark wash jeans. It’s a classic, casual look which I find chic.

It’s funny, I felt like I had stepped back into the 1990s in this outfit. The lug sole paired with a black top and jeans outfit is very ’90’s! It’s fun to have a season with such a strong influence from my favorite decade. Love that!
