Happy Friday Eve Besties! I am so glad you could join Holly and me for Monthly Musings. This is our fun little link up we host every month with different topics each time. Today we are talking all things fall fashion. Is it fall where you are? We are starting to feel all the fall vibes in these parts and I am here for it. Join me for all the fall fashion below and be sure to visit the other bloggers who linked up below.

1. Favorite Fall Fashion Pieces

I have a Burberry quilted jacket that I bought almost 20 years ago the I love wearing. It is the perfect fall piece and one that I saved for and invested in.

Being a hockey mom I also love my Uggs and a Good bootie. 

2. Favorite Colors to Wear in Fall?

I love a Good plum and cranberry color. Cranberry seems to be in again this season and I am here for it. It is one of my Best colors. 

3. Boot or Booties?

I love both...well maybe I love them all. I love a Good tall boot for work and just before the pandemic got comfortable with the booties and skirt look. I love a bootie with jeans and live in my Uggs during hockey season. I actually inherited Hockey Guy's Uggs that he outgrew that were practically brand new. Uggs are very popular with the high school guy hockey player set.

4. Are You a Scarf Person? Share a Photo of Your Favorite Scarf.

I am a scarf person and think they can totally elevate an outfit. The scarf below is on my profile photo and is from Stella & Dot last spring. I love it and it is my my favorite.

5. Favorite Fall Handbag? Do You Switch Up Your Bags for the Seasons?

I am a total bag lady. I own a lot of bags. I have two new bags I am loving this season and they are both from Stella & Dot, full disclosure I am an Ambassador.

This one I have been using the Zip It Crossbody on the weekend as it is a Good way to ease into the seasons when the weather is still a little warm.

I also have this new tote arriving the end of the week. I think it is going to be a Good option as I am going into the office more. The front part zips off and you can use it as a small crossbody. Perfect for running errands during the workday or for running to lunch.

6. Trend You Are Most Interested In Trying This Season?

I actually have two that I am interested in. The first is that I am loving the puff sleeve look. I am not talking puff sleeve circa Dynasty of the 1980's, just a little puff sleeve.

Here are some Good puff sleeve options.

The trend I want to try the most is a Good pair of slim boyfriend jeans. I don't want "mom jeans", not sure why that is a thing. But I am intrigued at the slim boyfriend jeans but need to find a pair that look right on me. I know they are saying that skinny jeans are out, but all of the retailers are still selling them. I am confused about this. If someone can explain mom jeans and the skinny jean thing to me in the comments I am all ears.

I think I am going to try these jeans on this weekend from J Crew Factory. 

If these don't work then I may resort to Stitch Fix. In years past I have received Good jeans from them and this may be an option again. I am also open to any recommendation on slim boyfriend/girlfriend jeans in the comments. 

7. Long Cardigan or Boyfriend Cardigan?

I like both, but I have to be careful with long cardigans. Since I am not super tall and have narrow shoulders, if I don't have the right long cardigan I can look like I am wearing a bathrobe. I have a few I really like and don't mind paying a little more for the right long cardigan.

Boyfriend cardigans are great for the weekend, casual Fridays and work from home. 

9. Vest or Puffer Coat?

I love both. I wear a vest this time of year and have this one below.

I also invested in a Helly Hansen puffer coat two years ago and it was a really Good investment. I always pay more for coats and it is worth it. 

10. Do You Change Up Your Make Up for Fall?

I don't change up my cheek and eye makeup I use the same two pallets all year.  I use the Elegant & Empowered and another pallette by Ever all year.

I definitely change up my lipsticks. When you have a Good palette it is easy to change up your lipstick, even in these semi mask wearing times. I am really focused on using clean beauty. I have a few that I like for fall from Beauty Counter and I am loving the Smooth lip colors from Ever in Honey and Berry for fall. I am wearing those on repeat.

I hope this post inspired you for your fall fashion and helped you with some Good fall staples and a few fun things to add to your wardrobe. Feel free to link up below and visit some of the other sights that joined us today.
