To celebrate the Fall Fashion Sip ‘n Shop, I popped over to Haywood Mall and ransacked as many stores as possible to put together my dream Summer to Fall transitional look. True to form, I was inspired by every single item I saw but I couldn’t resist the leopard print pencil skirt from J. Crew. Once I shimmied it (pulled, struggled, sweated in my Spanx) on, I wanted to take that baby from the tail end of August all the way through late Fall (and football girls, I had to style a look for you!). I thank you advance for humoring my attempts at being a fashion blogger….
First up: leopard skirt goes to work

Ya’ll, this skirt. It is so flattering and the bow belt detail is just so fun. It fits true to size and has a tiny bit of stretch for your rougher days. I love leopard for Fall and pairing it with a bright Kelly green is a perfect transition look – especially with a nude heel (in suede!).

The best news about that top? Even with that adorable back, I’m wearing a regular mom bra underneath!
Obsessed with those gorgeous Vernalite earrings from Reeds Jewelers (I tried to sneak them out of the mall but it was a no go!).

And as soon as I laid my eyes on the J. Crew burnt orange puffer vest, I couldn’t resist giving this skirt the football makeover – wear it with flats now (because, let’s be real, it is HOT at football until November) and with boots when it gets chilly!
