Welcome October

It's finally fall and I am ready for some seasonal temps! Who's over the 80s? Me!


Don't you just want to be outside when the air is crisp?




This season's trends are SUPER focused on the colors of autumn. And there's a surprising and completely affordable place to shop for them!


Trending for fall are all the autumn favorites- deep mauves, rusts, all shades of brown, taupey greys, mustards and maroons.


Of course, you'll find all of these shades in items like flannels and lightweight sweaters, cardigans and even pants. And I'm sure you've heard about the shacket, a combination of a jacket and a shirt. It's super popular as well.


I have to admit, these colors don't always love me back. But that doesn't stop me. If that shade of mustard isn't quite right by your face, wear it on pants or a piece of jewelry. Or add a print that has some of the the trendy colors with colors that also look amazing on you. Think outside the box!


I also have to admit that this said store, that has some of the greatest colors and patterns for the season all at reasonable prices, is not my favorite store. Infact, it's one of my least favorites. Maybe I'm getting older, or maybe they just really hit a note this season, but the place that I'm referring to....is MAURICES. Of all places... they seem to have hit the mark for fall.

I'm taking you on a journey of some of their seasonal items that I tried on that maybe you'll love. This was after a day of soccer and I left the house with wet hair, so please excuse the way I look. I was being fast and didn't plan ahead on what I was wear, so the shorts don't really work for each outfit! Focus on the tops. LOL

Here's my first shirt. It's just a flannel but I really like the fit on this one. It doesn't make me feel so much like a lumberjack. And it has our team color in it so I know that I would wear this one a bunch.


This sweater is a little out of my wheelhouse. I don't normally wear these kind of crazy prints but this sweater is SO SOFT. And sometimes you have to get out of your comfort zone. But I wasn't crazy about the fit.

Here is an adorable shacket. It again is amazingly soft. And I enjoy the colors. I also like how it fit. I don't feel like I'm swimming in it.

I picked this sweater again for the softness and the print. But this taupey grey color wasn't my friend. I also don't like things that are so shapeless.

Here is a cute little henley in a great mustard color.

This was my favorite sweater in the store. Incredibly soft but once I got it on I wasn't a fan of the color on me. I know the rest of you will love it though. It's the prettiest shade of brown- I think called golden rust or something.

I also liked this little tank top but I needed a size bigger and they didn't have one.

And that's my try-on session at Maurices! Go check them out for yourselves and pick up some great fall favorites!
