I must admit, I’m beyond thrilled with the dazzling styles, fabrics and colors that graced the Fashion Week runways across the globe for fall 2017.

Seeing these inspired collections and trends provided me with the perfect opportunity to combine 5 of my favorite fall trends into one look.


The soft, luxurious look and feel of cashmere should not only be a staple in your seasonal closet, it’s worth the investment. With one foot firmly planted in the classics, this is one sweater that will never go out of style.

Cold Shoulder &
Off The Shoulder Sweaters

This little cashmere number can be worn two ways, depending upon your mood (don’t ya just love that?). Wear it as a chic off the shoulder sweater or opt for the cowl neck look instead.


Burgundy dominated and took names during fall fashion week, and we can see why. The color is deep and rich and looks lovely on most skin types.

Animal Prints

If you follow me here on the blog and my social media accounts, you know that I’m a wild child at heart and never pass up an opportunity to wear something, anything animal print.

Sometimes I get bold, while today, I kept it subtle by adding an animal print link necklace to my outfit.

STYLE TIP: Animal prints look stunning combined with the colors burgundy or red. Jonet

Stylish, Comfortable Shoes

There’s great news on the fashion front for the 40+ woman. Stylish, comfortable shoes are trending, with fashionistas even pairing sneakers with dresses. Here, I’ve chosen a comfy pair of sophisticated flats by Sam Edelman.

    Such a cute way to combine so many trends. You elevated the entire outfit with the fun shoes and accessories. I’ve never tried the treStique lip colors but I’m addicted to their highlighter.
