Fall into Fashion

Now I know I mentioned last week that I'm still appreciating the ease of summer clothes and am in no rush for cold weather.  But I am getting more exciting for Fall.  I just wish Fall would last many months and not rush right to winter.  I read this article on buzzfeed the other day and it made me laugh, as I am guilty of well over half of those things.  

Although they probably should've included something about going to Target on the list.  Like going to Target and buying Fall fashion magazines and looking through them for outfit inspirations.  I bought Elle and Instyle's September issues last week and when I did I got a $5 Target gift card.  (You can also grab Vogue's September issue or any combination of the three and get a giftcard too now until September 13th.)  

Whenever Addilyn goes down for a nap I am usually quick to turn on the tv while cleaning up the kitchen or while working on a project or my blog.  This day I instead just sat on my couch reading these magazines, drinking a cup of coffee and enjoyed the quiet.  I should really do that more often.
Last Fall I didn't fit comfortably in a lot of my jeans, and wearing leggings and dresses was hard with nursing.  While I look forward to wearing some pants I haven't worn in well over a year and half, I'll happily try out any trend that allows you to wear pajama like pants and feel stylish.  

So I was happy to see that these loungewear pants are in style for Fall.  There was a full page in Elle with all kinds of cute, trendy looking pajama like pants.  However all of them were over $50, which is so far out of my budget for clothes, even ones that are as comfortable as yoga pants.  A few months ago I bought these pants at TJMaxx for $12.  Much more my price range.  I haven't worn them once, as I couldn't figure out what to wear them with.  I am glad I had some extra motivation to figure it out because now I can't wait to wear them more.  

Let's hope wrinkles are in style to this year because clearly I'm sporting just a few.  

I was a little unsure of what shoes to wear with them, or how to make them not look sloppy.  The magazine gave some tips like wearing a more fitted shirt or heeled shoes.  Now heels are pretty impractical for me on a daily basis, but cute leopard flats are much more fitting for me. 

I was happy for a little inspiration and push to try out my new pants.  Sometimes I forget to look through magazines for inspiration with pinterest, instagram and blogs being a more used source for me.  But it was nice to sit and read a magazine instead.  Especially when it means I have $5 to spend at Target.

Ooh! I love those pants and the choice of shoes. I am not okay with wearing heels on a daily basis. But I am so excited for fall too! I can't wait for it to actually turn cooler where I live so I can start wearing some boots and scarves :) I'm so glad I found your blog!
