Wow – I have been overwhelmed by your response to the first few days of this 31 Days series! Thank you! Feeling so blessed!

Today we’re going to lighten things up a bit with fashion!

I am NOT the type to rush out to the stores as soon as the next season’s fashion trends are announced. But I do enjoy looking through my own closet – or at the thrift stores – to see what I can put together without spending too much!

Here’s a little peak at some of my favorite fall fashion trends this year…

Top Ten Fall Fashion Trends

1. Mustard hues

Whether it’s an entire dress…

Or just a cardigan to accent…

Mustard hues are hot colors right now! You will find them all over Pinterest and popping up at stores near you as well! You can use it as much or little as you want! I have similar pieces for everything in that second outfit, so I can’t wait to put it all together and see how it looks!

2. Polka dots

If I wasn’t expecting, I would buy this dress from DownEast Basics in a heartbeat. It is such a subtle take on the polka dot trend AND it is in gray, one of the colors in this fall’s color palette. There are a lot of fun ways to do polka dots this fall – even in some cute shoes!

3. Granny plaids

This plaid scarf is just perfect to me – great colors paired with a great basic outfit. You might be feel comfortable with more or less plaid, but either way, plaid definitely says fall to me!

4. Lace

Honestly, I’m not a big fan of lace, but apparently it is in style this fall, including lace dresses, so it has to be mentioned here.

If I was going to wear lace, this skirt

or this tunic

{both from DownEast Basics} would definitely be pieces I would try!

5. Bright pants

I SO want to try this trend, but I’m not sure I’m brave enough! I adore the above outfit – bright pants with a very neutral top and basic flats. We’ll see if I can get the courage…

6. Leather

I had to use this picture from last winter because it is my FAVORITE leather-looking item in my closet. And that is the key – you don’t have to spend big bucks on real leather. It’s the look of leather that is hot this fall!

7. Knits

I LOVE pulling out sweaters each fall as the temps drop and knits were seen all over the runway this year! And this year knits are also being paired with…

8. Long skirts

Knit sweaters are being layered with maxi skirts and dresses {like the one above from eShakti} this fall – a great way to get more wear out of some of your summer wear! I’m very interested in trying this trend to see exactly what looks good together in this combination!

9. Jade and Teal

10. Boots

Hello gorgeous.

My love for this trend can’t be contained in just one point of a top ten list. Boots deserve an entire post all to themselves. So they will get one. Stay tuned for that in the near future.

So, which trend is YOUR favorite?!
