Fall Fashion Week! What to wear: Guest Post By Beth Dunn! Social Climbers Novelist and Fashionably Preppy!
This fall I've been obsessed with finding what were called "Cowl neck" sweaters when I was a child. I love a boxy sweater to pair with my fun printed cigarette pants. As a mother of two young active son's--I spend a lot of time outside. If I'm not wearing my fur sweater with riding pants I think it's totally appropriate to wear long sleeve wool dresses with riding boots. I have cashmere scarfs in every color and no outfit is complete without an arm full of bracelets. The nice part of the sweater dress is once home from a day of hiking I can just change the boots into my new green suede Lilly Pulitzer wedges and I'm good to go. Once the babysitter has ordered pizza Husband and I can attend a fund raiser or go out for dinner.
I don't change my purses daily but I have so many fun brown, orange, and yellow bags I have to switch every few weeks. When I wear jeans (which is next to never) , I dress them up with a cashmere sweater and ballet flats. Another way I'll wear jeans is with a silk ruffled blouse, a cardigan and open toe heels.
Beginning in August I collect J. Crew catalogs, Lilly Pulitzer catalogs and search the internet for Kate Spade, , and Lesley Evers. I try to figure out where I have gaps in my wardrobe for example if I have a pair of pants I love but nothing that looks good on top. Then I begin the shopping!!!!
