Happy Fall Friday, everyone! Today is the first full 24-hours of fall, so let’s celebrate with a Fall Fashion Friday post!
Though it is still warm in South Texas, I have turned full on fall fashion with lighter garments, but lovely colors.
I would love to hear in the comments how some of you are celebrating the official beginning of fall where you live.
So, let’s get started on this Fall Fashion Friday….and there will be food for thought at the end.
FALL FASHION FRIDAY: THE OUTFIT
Today, I am wearing the Women’s Utility Chore Jacket I modeled for you at Target earlier this week.
This is a fun laid-back casual jacket to start us off with Fall Fashion Friday. I like it for warmer climates in that it is not heavy.
I paired it with a sleeveless Calvin Klein top originally from Marshalls.
My feet are so happy in these from Jambu slip-ons.
This is the ERIN SHOE in Olive.
They are so comfortable for walking and I am super excited to have this shoe in my fall fashion…and feature first on Fall Fashion Friday!
FALL FASHION FRIDAY – FUNERAL DRESS
The pageantry of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on Monday was mesmerizing for many reasons.
Yet, I also received great conviction from what all the attendees wore.
Recently I wrote about how funerals in our country have become so casual, and how I dressed down right along with others to attend one this summer.
But, looking at that sea of chic, gorgeous black dresses on Monday, I found them to be quite honoring of the occasion.
I suddenly was reminded how this honors not only the person gone, but their families and their lives as well.
So, I am going back to how I previously dressed for funerals and dressing up, not down. I am even considering purchasing a black dress just for this occasion, since I no longer wear black.
This slideshow features black dresses currently on the market….I am sure navy works as well, but looking at all the black dresses and hats & fascinators, I found the scene to be simply stunning.
FALL FASHION FRIDAY – FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Since I have mentioned the passing of a vibrant, amazing woman, I also want to remind you how beautiful aging is and we see it during the fall.
The beauty of the season as the leaves age and fall is such an incredible reminder from nature that this is a special time for us as well.
Embrace it and wear it with your style and a smile.
Here are your Fall Fashion Friday sales….
FALL FASHION FRIDAY FUN
Let’s conclude this Fall Fashion Friday with a little fun.
Here are my own lyrics to “These are a few of my favorite things” from Sound of Music….
“Pumpkins on porches
And golden sunflowers
Autumn leaves falling
Spice candles for hours
Pumpkin spice coffees
Fall festival flings
These are a few of my favorite things”
