Fall colors are always my favorite! The gem tones are so brilliant and vibrant I can’t help but think of all the autumn leaves I’m missing up in PA! I suppose the only thing I have to show for it down here in Florida is the colors I can pick up shopping 🙂

I wore this outfit to work today and had to mix some of my favorite fall hues (i.e. mustard and wine) with my favorite print: leopard. Mustard and leopard seem to pair together like peas and carrots in my opinion and I was pleasantly surprised at how nicely my new wine-colored satchel seemed to complement the duo.

This season, I partnered up with Marshalls once again to bring you a trend report on what women thought would take their fall style and experiences up a notch this season. Not surprisingly, out of 1,000 women surveyed, the trend you were all most excited over this season was sporting a “pop of color in your wardrobe!” Oh, you all know just how to make a girl’s heart melt! Pops of colors and print are my forte and ironically enough my favorite color this season (last year’s was mustard seed) was the most popular color chosen this season…WINE!

The fall fashion trends women are most excited to wear are:

1.        Handbags with hardware (76%)

2.        Ankle booties (75%)

3.       Mixed texture fabric sweaters (73%)

Me too, ladies…me too. I recently scooped up a new pair of wine-colored ankle boots that I can’t wait to pair with cropped skinnies and French-esque striped scoop-neck tees. I’ve been craving a new handbag and have been on the hunt for the perfect structured tote to haul all of my “teacher” stuff (let’s get real, I just love to tote everything I own everywhere like a hobo).

So, to investigate what Marshalls had to offer us this season, I shopped my local store in Orlando and probably ticked Nate off while I oogled basically everything they had to offer! I ended up scooping up this UH-MAZING brand name structured tote with gold hardware in a deep wine color and this cardigan in mustard seed. Like I said, I’m just attracted to brilliant gem tones right now!

The tote is my newest bag obsession. It’s one of those pieces that just add a touch of class and panache to any outfit; upping its “wow” factor. I’m loving how the gold hardware accents pick up metallic detail in other pieces of the outfit, polishing it to perfection.

So what do you think? What is your favorite color this season? Do you agree with what other women thought? What piece are you craving this fall? What pieces do you think you will add to your wardrobe? Sound off in the comments, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
