I am so happy fall is here! The weather is better, and the fall styles are so fun and fresh! Love! It was refreshing to be able to wear this new fall outfit and enjoy a relaxing lunch with my friend Dawn from Fashion Should be Fun. She took these outfit photos!

If you have been following along, you may have heard me talk about how wide leg pants have too much fabric on someone short as myself. Well, I found wide leg jeans for short people like me! If you are short, or you shop in the petite department, I found wide leg jeans we can wear! Yay!

These fabulous, 1970s vibe jeans are available in short, regular, and tall. I am 5’4″ so regular jeans which are wide leg, flare, or bell bottom, are usually waaaaaaaaaay too long for me. So when I saw these jeans in short, and tried them on, I was hooked! They don’t hit the floor in bare feet, yet they hit in just the right spot with boots. My boots have a 2″ block heel, so they are tall, but not too tall. If I wanted to wear sneakers or loafers with these jeans I could, since the jeans are the right length.

The cool thing about these jeans, is if you are not short like me, they also come in regular and tall. I have a good friend who is tall, so I know she can wear these in the tall size. Love that!

Word on the street is that skinny jeans are over, much to my chagrin. So, it is time we find the new styles in our sizes! This fall season, we all need to replace our skinny jeans with a pair of wide leg jeans, and a pair of flares. I will definitely be posting more jeans as I find styles that work with short legs like mine!

Now that we have discussed jeans, let’s talk about food! haha My friend Dawn and I enjoyed a yummy lunch at The Counter at Santana Row. If you have not eaten at The Counter, you must go! They have a large variety of possible sandwich combinations you can customize on your own. I love their Impossible burger with cheese, mushrooms, and pesto. They also have meat burgers, chicken and veggie. It’s so good!

BAF Weekly IT List from top left: bright pink blazer / fall nail polish / G buckle belt / makeup bag + organizer (use code Cathy10 to save!) / loafer mule / green woven mini bag / caramel hobo bag / black water-resistant boots / western style suede boots / olive denim joggers /

This fall season, the styles are getting more dressed up! Blazers are a must for pairing with jeans, and jeans are moving away from skinny styles and towards joggers, wide leg jeans, flares, and bell bottoms. Boots are a fall staple, and this fall the streets are loving western styles, classic chelsea styles, and metallic hues. Also look for understated and neutral nails, as well as travel pieces such as this fabulous makeup bag + organizer which can be used daily at home, on the go, for the gym, and also for travel. Love it!

Handbags for fall are trending towards hobos, small or mini bags, and non-logo bags. This season, handbags are chic and classic. Look for beautiful leathers, faux leathers, craftsmanship, and fabrications. Flashy logos are over.

Rainy day event outfit

rainy day event outfit ideas

Wearing: blue and silver earrings / puffy faux leather jacket / dress (original post here, current version here) / black handbag / fall nail polish / boots (old, current version here) /

This is one of my favorite dresses, and I rarely have the opportunity to wear it! I purchased it in the fall of 2019 to wear to fashion week, and then in early 2020, everything shut down. This meant my dress just hung in my closet for quite some time! Now that events are starting to make a comeback, I finally had an opportunity to wear my dress again. Yay!

Last week, when it was raining here (yes, we got rain! Yay!), I attended an event at the Olympic Club which was originally scheduled in 2020 and had to be postponed for obvious reasons. It was so nice to finally be able to have an in-person event! The Bay Area has really been shut down, so it is only now that life is starting to look normal; including rush hour traffic, but I digress. . .

This dress is really fun because it looks like a skirt and top, but it is one piece. It is really easy and comfortable to wear, plus, it makes people think you are good at tucking in your top. haha I love the new versions of this dress in stores for fall, maybe I should pick up another one now that I have places to go! Love!

If you are looking for an investment jacket, this one is fabulous. I purchased it last year and the brand continues to have it on the market. It is a classic puffer jacket, and since it is faux, you can wear it in the rain. Love that! I’m looking forward to staying cozy in it again this year. If you are in the market for a fabulous and cozy jacket, I highly recommend this one!
