My Fall Fashion Preview

While suffering through 105 degree weather what better way to while away the day than by dreaming of sweaters and jackets. Besides, I'm a sweater addict, especially loving the soft kind with the cowl neck collars. I've been doing some shopping online, trying to assemble my fall wardrobe and I thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you.

I once blogged about a pair of shoes and was challenged by Julieta to show her what I would wear them with, being that she had once owned a similar pair of shoes and had nothing but bad memories of same. Here are said shoes:



And here is what I would wear them with. These absolutely fabulous ultra-wide leg twill trousers with the high Hollywood waist. I know this may not be an acceptable style for some of you, but I think they're dreamy. I can only imagine how comfy they must be, with all the leg room in those wide legs, not to mention the fact that I would never, ever have to worry about my undies showing from the backside when I sit down. (As an aside, am I the only one who suffers from this affliction? I don't own a pair of pants that don't flash my backside if I am required to bend over or sit down.) I am also thoroughly enjoying this belted sweater and bolero look.



Other items I'm wanting:

This wrap turtleneck sweater , just $49.00.



Soft cotton jersey foldover collar sweater , $54.00.



Ribbed flutter-sleeve metallic sweater tunic for $59.00.



Swing sleeve tweed jacket , $49.00



Belted blazer for $59.00.



Awesome houndstooth coat from Fred Flare for $95.00.

Oh my I haven't laughed this hard in a while! That was great. Thank you for taking the time to meet the challenge. I could never pull off those pants--you must be tall and lean, you lucky duck!

BTW, ahem, I couldn't help but notice that those shoes would be *hidden* by those pants! ;)

p.s.I have to admit that's a great shot of those shoes.

Ooh, I LOVE those shoes. I want! I have no idea what I'd wear with them but they have an Anthropologie feel to me, so I think I'd look there...

Good point Julieta, however, I only do pants. No skirts or dresses. I think I have a phobia. :)

Alice, I think you are right on. :)
