fall trends to try: polka dots!

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 to try for fall is polka dots!  It's not the dots your toddler daughter or Minnie Mouse wear... these dots are sophisticated and subtle while still adding a touch of fun and whimsy to your fall looks.   Here I chose a few fun dotty pieces for fall and styled them up.  Are you game for dots this season? If so, what piece here could you see yourself wearing?

Stay tuned all week... there will be so many more fall trends to try that you will love!



see you around...
