Fall Trends Haul

I have been purchasing a few items here and there over the last past week and I want to share some of the things that I have found. 

The first item is a lace top that picked up at H&M.  Now at first I wasn’t feeling the whole lace obsession, because I think that it can be difficult for plus size women to pull this off.  I also have a very unattractive birthmark on my arm, so I usually wear shirts that cover it, but self-acceptance is so important.  I debated with my hubby if I should try it on and obviously he didn’t give a flip (never take a man to the mall with you).  When I finally tried on the top I really liked it, so I picked it up.

I cannot articulate how in love I am with wedges.  I picked up the first pair at Aldo, and I love that they are lace-ups.  I picked up the Franco Sarto ankle boots at TJ Maxx, and I adore them as well.  I love the little silver studs embedded into the leather trim at the top of the boots.  Now I will admit that I wear a size 10, and I clearly saw that it said 91/2 on the shoe before I tried them on, but I had to take a chance.  It paid off because the boots felt great, except for being a little snug around the ankle, but it is so worth it.  I guess this is what people mean when they say beauty is pain!

Utility Jackets
I picked up this camouflage blazer from an online store, called Tilly’s.  I have never shopped at this store, but they had the item I was looking for.  I am not quite sure what I am going to do with this blazer.  I like that it is very subtle and will not be to over the top for me to wear to work, yet I can jazz it up to wear on the weekends as well.  Let me know if you have any suggestions.

The grey military jacket is from Kohl’s, and I am crazy about it.  When I tried it on in the store my mom said, “You have to get that, it is badd.”  My family knows that I like to shop when I have the opportunity, but my mom is on another level.  She can out-shop me any day!   

I think that I am the last person on earth to get a floral piece into my closet, but I was waiting for the right one to walk into my life.  I have seen so many shirts and skirts to choose from, but none of them ever felt right.  This ruffled button-down tunic is the perfect fit for me.  I love the belt that came with it, and I cannot wait to actually wear it.  

Well that is all for me right now, please let me know what cool items you have picked up lately.
