Put down your glass of rosé and pick up a pumpkin spiced treat, fall is here! You know what that means. Time to break out the layers of scarves, knit sweaters, and tights. As you change your nail polish from Essie Pink Parka to OPI Malaga Wine don’t forget to transition the rest of your style too!
We did the work for you to pull together the need-to-know notes so you can enter Fall 2016 just as fiercely as you’re leaving behind Summer 2016.

One can hardly talk about style without mentioning one of the biggest game changing events in the industry’s calendar-New York Fashion Week.

Every year designers, models, and celebrities descend upon The Big Apple to watch runways in hopes of becoming trend setters at the time honored celebration of all things cutting edge and glamourous. Our notes come directly from authorities on the matter- Elle, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar. Here’s the scoop:

Bold florals are here to prove spring time isn’t the only season for flower petals and palm fronds with  Tory Burch’s line of dresses and shirts. The boom of blooms on black reminds us of our own Winter Garden colorway boldly displayed on the classic Paloma and many other shoes this season.

The butterfly embellishment is in full effect and Valentino’s trench combines the established trend of military inspired outerwear with this surprising pop of color and whimsy. Just as surprising a pop of whimsy can be seen on a Facebook favorite our ours- the Glee slide-in.

Two of Fall 2016’s bigger inspirations at NYFW include the military inspired pieces with a specific nod to the nautical branch and athletic wear paying homage to the street style of the 90s.

Before you don your double-breasted coat in everyone’s favorite navy blue hue be sure to pick up a pair of your own standard issue Izzy boots to get in formation with this trend.

Looking for something a little lower profile but still highly functional for your sportier side? The Essence in Posh Pewter adds a shine to your shoe collection while being on point with designers obsessing over all that glitters.

Speaking of color- this fall highlights elements of warmth, shine, and gloss. You’ll be seeing plenty of red, rust, mustard yellow, and oranges in rich tones paired with gold and bronze metallics and high gloss varnishes.

Now that you have the outline of what to look for in your new fall favorites don’t ignore what you already have in your closet as you take your fashion from the cabana at Miami Beach to the orchard in Martha’s Vineyard.

Be sure to layer in your cozy new pieces with ones you already have on hand. A red dress paired with a black blazer makes a warm weather favorite go a little further. A pair of booties matched with a leg baring pair of leather shorts is an encouraged blend of the seasons.

Likewise, wearing sandals with layered outfits- don’t forget your “rule of three”- is another way to make the move towards cool autumn evenings. We have one sandal that is the perfect combo of Fall 2016’s deep yellow and bright metallic finishes.

Alegria Colette Posh Gold


Not quite into toe-bearing fashion as you approach October? Transition a little more gently with this crossover sandal in a red hue that is seen much on recent runways as it is on the turning leaves. Just remember, ladies- no matter how you transition your summer footwear leave the white cotton socks out of it.

Alegria Jemma Red Butter


Booties, leather accessories, scarves, and chunky knit sweaters all evoke Saturday afternoon hay rides and tailgating. So take a deep breath of crisp air and raise your tea latte to the official arrival of autumn weather and fall fashion.

The Dixie Classic Fair is all fun and games…that is, until you’ve walked all over the fairgrounds 5 times and your small children want to walk through the rides and games a few more times!  Your feet are in excruciating pain and now your children are pulling at you to keep up. Your friends are begging you to “just make it to the next ride!”  Oh my gosh, you feel like you’re walking in high heels and your feet are going to fall off and your legs are going to break if you take one more step!  You try to put weight on one foot at a time or dig your toes down to take the pressure off your burning heels.
Well, that’s only a temporary fix.  Instead of thinking about where the next bench is or when your next break will be, you should be enjoying yourself, the company you keep, and the many thrilling events and rides the fair has to offer.  That’s what the Dixie Classic Fair is all about!!!
