Good morning all! I hope everyone’s week is going well. Mine sure seems like it’s flying by–I can’t believe it’s almost October! Which is now one of my favorite times of the year, now that I can dress Jake up (thinking Mickey Mouse this year since he’s so obsessed)… But really–everyone needs to start thinking about his or her costumes because it’s going creep up on us before we know it! Anyway-back to the important stuff… So, I (unfortunately or fortunately) wasn’t able to make it to Fashion Week this time around-I was doing some SERIOUS work near Fashion Island in Newport Beach on the other side in LA & had such a fabulous time. I did miss being in the mix of the first to know all of the new trends that we will be seeing come Spring 2015, but that didn’t stop me from doing my homework ☺ Here are some of the trends that will be going strong that you can feel confident to buy now & wear now. Then wear through the winter and even into next Spring & Summer! Now that’s smart shopping right???!!! I’ve highlighted my favorite trends, along with my favorite styles that are out now that will carry you through. Hopefully this post will help you do your smartest & most stylish shopping ever!
