Fall Fashion & Feminine Touches…Please Don’t Put Away The Pretty

When the leaves begin to fall and the weather turns cooler, it’s common for a lot of women to put away the whites, the lace and all the frilly materials that are popular in the warmer months. I’m not sure why, it just seems typical to opt for darker colors and of course heavier fabrics. And let’s face it, sometimes our cold weather wear isn’t too pretty. Believe me, my wardrobe is completely guilty of this as well. But this year I’m going to make a conscious effort to keep the pretty going throughout the year.

Just because it’s cold and blustery out, doesn’t mean you can’t wear white or lace or chiffon. Yes, you’ll have to layer…but admit it, that’s fun too. And most of the time you’ll be inside so it’ll be easy.

So to help make sure your outfits stay pretty year round, here are some lovely items to be sure to keep in your closet.

This feminine blouse topped off with pretty stiped and lace detail cardigan featured by M Loves M is a perfect mix to emmulate this fall.

Okay…this one may not work for everyone, but if you live in an area of the country where the temperature allows you to sometimes wear shoes that don’t entirely cover your feet…take advantage of it. Here are some really nice wedges as shown by The Blonde Salad.

I’m really loving all the lace this year. But there’s no need to put it away now that we’re into fall…even if you live in freezing temperatures. Just wear the lovely material with some tights if it’s a skirt or a dress, a warm sweater if its in the form of pants or a cardigan if it happens to be a blouse. Here’s a nice skirt option from Breakfast at Katy with an olive chiffon blouse and a brown leather envelope bag.

Ahhh…this blouse found on I Offer is so me. And this is something you could easily layer under several items even in the coldest of temperatures. I love the shoulder ruffles, don’t you?

The lace bodice on this LBD featured on Be Frassy is so pretty and this has to be one of the cutest dresses I’ve seen in a long time. With holiday party season quickly approaching, a lace number like this is a definite must!

In my opinion, a flowy polka dot blouse screams femininity. Polka dots in general remind me of  Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Audrey Hepburn and we all know those two were absolute icons of feminine.

This bow belted trench as seen on Young Sophisticates is so creative yet so simple it’s brilliant. This is a perfect way to keep the pretty going through the cold.

A friend Pinned this sweater on Pinterst and I simply fell in love. It’s so so so feminine and something I would absolutely wear. What about you?


Again, with holiday season around the corner you need to start thinking about all those parties. And why not change it up and instead of wearing black, red or gold…go with a soft flowy dress like this. You’ll be sure to catch everyone’s attention…in a good, good way!

Ahhh…in my opinion, Wendy from Wendy’s Lookbook can do no wrong. Here she is in a super feminine and chic outfit that is still perfect for the cool weather. I’m so lovin’ the pants!

The rule of not wearing white after Labor Day was thrown out the window long ago. So I say embrace it with white and cream from head to toe!

This lace blouse from Sincerely Sweet Boutique caught my eye and I knew I had to post it as a pretty must keep for fall. I mean, who would ever want to put something this pretty away?
