On the "accessible" side of fashion, the mall and online shops are offering low, low prices on what is left (think: potentially low, low inventory) of summer 09 pret-a-porter. So if you are thinking your wardrobe needs a little sumthin' sumthin' - you might be scrambling to find something that fits your warm weather needs now... but let's face it (especially in Michigan), we are mere months from the first frost.

Instead of making a quick push to fall, I recommend adding some summer-fling worthy items to your wardrobe that maybe got looked over on the first go round.
One of my particular favorites this season, and a bit daring I do admit, are colored jeans... they are fresh and fun and by simply adding a white tee shirt and some sandals you have an instant and effortless outfit. Here are some fun options:
Then when the weather turns, take your colored jeans and simply add a denim or safari jacket with a scarf and you are all set!
