Friday ~ Autumn Inspiration

It is time to clean-out the summer clothes and bring in some fall colors and warm fabrics. Many people are on tight budgets this year but it is still possible to bring in gorgeous autumn colors to your wardrobe. I've gone to a couple of consignment shops and found 2 beautiful jackets for a fraction of the original price. They were gently used, but in excellent condition. As a single mom, I've got to get creative and clever with my spending money. I'm excited to do more bargin shopping.
Start by incorporating textured fabrics like suede, velvet, leather, wool, corduroy, and denim. Jackets should take the lead role in an amazing autumn collection. Keep the price reasonable by purchasing simple jacket and accessorizing them. Add in autumn colors scarves in coffee browns, burnt orange, brick red, deep plum purples, olive greens, chestnut golds. A large chunky necklace is the icing on the cake. Stay within budget by pairing your jacket with your favorite jeans and comfy t-shirt. Another gorgeous look can be wearing a dress under your jacket. A long skirt looks classic with the perfect jacket. For an updated look, go out an by colored leggings to wear under a longer jacket. I think that as long as you are comfortable and feel confident, any hint of autumn colors will warm your heart.
Here are my jacket inspirations from The Territory Ahead.
