fall trends to try: 'fancy' sweatshirts!

It's the most WONDERFUL time of the year around the blog these days as I kick off the "fall trends to try" series!!!! This is one of my all time favorite blog series' and while it has evolved over the years, it is still designed and brought to you to do two major things for you this fall: 1) clue you in on what I think are the easiest and most stylish trends to try this fall season and 2) give you tons of tips and tricks on how to style these trends for everyday wear. For the next few weeks this blog will be all-fall-all-the-time and when we are done you (and I) will have a firm plan for our fall style and back to school shopping (if that applies to you!).

 If you are like me, you absolutely love to comb the magazines, blogs and catalogs this time of year to see what the new trends are going to be for the season (or if you don't love that... don't worry, I'll do all the work for you!). However, I kept finding each season that the trends that the magazines and runways were predicting were just NOT suitable for my lifestyle as a busy mom (or for that matter... most everyday gorgeous ladies!). It left me bummed and discouraged. So instead of lamenting I just figured I would chart out my own trends for the season based on what I was seeing and loving in the stores, blogs, catalogs, etc and report them here to you. How easy is that?

Today's trend is sweatshirts... and no, not the frumpy ones you still have left hanging around from college or the one you got on last years vacation to Florida.  No, these are a serious upgrade from the standard sweatshirt. They are encrusted with jewels, feature slim flattering fits or are embroidered with lace and other fun embellishments.  They add a certain casual feel to an outfit that can easily be made to feel dressed up (but still very comfortable!) with the right accessories!!

I'd love to know... will you be putting one of these sweatshirts on your fall shopping list?
