The holidays are coming and if you are like me, you are probably thinking, “What will I wear?” You want to be comfortable and look pretty, and most importantly, eat while doing it all. Luckily, there is a solution. The leather leggings! They are a fancy version of our favorite leggings and basic leggings. Another fall trend is a fun pump and clutch. For the holidays I would suggest a white silk shirt, a blazer and leather leggings and maybe a burnt orange or red heel.
With the fall slowly approaching, a lot of you are probably thinking “I don’t want to put my summer clothes away.” Well, good news, you don’t have to. One day I was looking at my daughter who was three at the time and she was wearing something very creative. She took her favorite summer dress and then put it over a turtleneck, paired it with tights, ballet flats and a jean jacket… after I told her it was too cold for the dress. Apparently, she was onto something. Layering your favorite summer pieces, so that you can extend the wear is in. You can even take your favorite shorts and wear them over a fun tight, ankle boots and a pretty top. There are also the Capri pants. That is easy, pair with tall boots and a jacket, sweater, blazer, etc. If you love your miniskirts paired with sandals and tank tops during the summer, well, just add a fall colored tight, some boots and a classic blazer and you now have a sophisticated fall look.
You can save money, have fun and show your creative side just by stepping out of the box. So, just because the calendar says it is time to put the summer clothes away, fashion is saying keep them out.

So ladies, which of your summer clothes can you bring into fall?
I know of a family with two girls, the same ages as my children, who recently lost everything when their home was burned to the ground. I couldn’t imagine how those parents must feel. I immediately got together a collection of things to donate. As I was doing this, I realized that there are people everywhere that go without or lose things and cannot afford to replace them.
What woman does not like shoes? Well, now we can be fashionable and help a good cause all at once. Tom’s shoes are cute, comfortable and come in a variety of styles. My children love them as do I. The best part is their “one for one” campaign. For every pair of Tom’s shoes that you purchase, the company will donate a pair to someone in need.
Here are a few examples of the great styles for kids and parents:
As I was in the waiting room of my doctor’s office, I started flipping through “Country Living” magazine and I came across a pretty neat “do-it-yourself” fashion project from Jourdan Crouch. The project was how to make a jaunty rope necklace. I thought what better way to greet the summer than with a nautical inspired accessory. To me, nothing says “summer is here” better than accessories and the beach. There are so many perks to this project: the fun of doing it yourself, the inexpensiveness of it and you can customize it to your favorite summer colors. You can even pick out your favorite summer pieces and pull colors from it and create a perfect match.

Are you one of those people that wish they could wear jeans everywhere? I am! However, until recently, I always felt that I needed to be “dressed” to go out. Well girls; our wish has been answered. Luckily for us, the newest fashion trend is all about patterned jeans. Whether they are floral, animal print, color washed, sandblasted; you think of it, the jeans have it. My favorite is the skinny leg floral jeans designed by Paige denim. You can pull out a color from the flowers and match it with a top and heels or a tank and flats. So now, you can transform your fun jeans from daytime play to nighttime fun just by changing the shoes.

Now that Spring is here we can say HELLO to bright colors and good bye to the “grey” of Winter. Diane Von Furstenberg has now launched her children’s line for the fourteen and under age group at Gap Kids. “It’s fun, it’s colourful – it’s a world away from the preppy neutrals that are Gap’s bread and butter. This is exactly what a children’s range should be: Bright, bold, playful. Nothing about it takes itself too seriously – this is about kids having fun in clothes that allow them the freedom to do so” says Deborah Arthurs
These outfits are modeled after Diane von Furstenberg’s line of adult clothing. If you are like me, you will agree that the best part of this new line is that you can now dress like your little girl without compromising either one’s fashion sense (or age).
