Fashion for Fun Fall Festivities

During the fall there are so many fun activities to do with your favorite people. Being the fashion guru and girly-girl that I am, my first thought is ‘what am I going to wear’ before a wine tasting with the girls or hiking with my family.

For hiking you’ll want to keep warm but don’t need a heavy jacket just yet. Thats why leggings and sneakers for the rough terrain of the outdoors, are just fine. Pair these with a vest, hoody underneath, and a beanie.

Before hunting for the perfect pumpkin, apple picking, or maybe both in one day, I know you’ll want to pick a perfectly great outfit before anything else! That’s the most exciting part, especailly because the most cozy and stylish outfit is definitely in order for these events. Jogging pants, an oversized sweater, and mules to just slip on and go are great for a long day outdoors.

Probably just as popular as the pumpkin spice latte, wine tasting, is a little more on the fancy side. A dressy cami, skirt and pumps are the way to go. But if it’s too chilly for a skirt and pumps, a dressy sweater with leggings or denim and boots are just as perfect.

Hay riding is more on the opposite side of the spectrum, more laid back, I guess you could call it. So, instead of dressing up, try denim jeans, a jacket of matching wash. I’d go with black sneakers if you think you might bump into some mud along the way. If you think you’ll be bumping into any of these activities soon, there are two main rules; have fun and be stylish to others.

Tips for wearing Ankle Boots with Jeans

This season, Fall in love with a trend that’s so stylish and easy that you’ll never let it go. I’m talking about Ankle boots paired with skinny jeans. What especailly makes this combo great is that you can see the whole boot with the pant’s slim cut. If you’re skinny jeans are too long for you, rolling the hem up inside and ironing it will give it a natural looking new length. If you prefer leggings, they are great because they will do the same thing as skinny jeans for you. Even better, wear jeggings, jeans as stretchy as leggings for comfort and the boot/denim look altogether.

To change it up a little, try cuffing up your pants on the outside instead of tucking them into your boots. Don’t be afraid to try other styles with your ankle boots such as the boyfriend style and boot cut. The boyfriend jeans have a looser cut, are usually rolled up at the end, with a shorter length. These denim pieces are better with high heeled booties to avoid a tomboyish look. But if that’s for you, by all means, go for it, girl!

High heeled ankle boots are also great if you’re aiming to look taller. Just add jeans that are the same color of the boots for leaner, longer looking legs. For jeans with a zipper at the end, forget about tucking them in and zipping them up. Leave the hem unzipped for a unique fashion statement. All of these ideas make a statement of variety and pizazz that can last all through the season and into winter.
