17 Looks for Fall 2017

In case you haven't been hit over the head with this fact quite yet it is officially fall y'all!  Being the basic B I am, I couldn't be happier.  This means scarves, boots and copious amounts of Oktoberfest brew passed around my household.   It also means everyone's favorite style season.   I have collected my 17 favorite fall looks to share with you today.  My hair color seems to change faster than the falling leaves in this walk down memory lane!  

Which look is your favorite?

Annual Style Rut

Every year around this time I begin to slowly slip back into my rut of wearing black and white with pops of red.  I know I do it.  I hate that I do it.  Yet I still do it every.single.YEAR! Last year I thought I had come to peace with it, but now I feel differently. I may need to ban myself from buying black and white cold weather clothing, because I have to find more ways to inject some color during the fall and winter.  

Help!  How do you break out of your style ruts?!

Fall Pattern Mixing | Buffalo Plaid & Houndstooth

Like a moth to a flame, so goes every fashion blogger to buffalo plaid come fall.  And why not?  Buffalo plaid is one of those timeless and gorgeous prints that screams Autumn!  I have buffalo plaid tops, shoes, coats and of course this poncho!  Who doesn't love a good check print?

This time I decided to cinch in the waist of this bad boy with a houndstooth scarf that has been hiding in the depth of my scarf drawer for a while.  I love it so much, and had forgotten I owned it until I did a closet purge recently and went through all of the contents of my dresser. I love the look of these two prints together!

See how I styled this poncho last fall here!

In Kinsey's Closet Obsession | Leopard Print Lust

If you have been following along on my IKC journey (how "Bachelor" franchise did that just sound?) will know one thing: I love a good leopard print!  Now leopard print is really hit or miss in my book.  There is a fine line between chic and gawdy, and I am sure I have overstepped my bounds a time or two over the years.  Here are some of my favorite leopard items that have been featured on IKC!

Trending Always| Pattern Mixing

What a week this has been!  It's only Wednesday, so just a few more days until I get to spend a relaxing weekend with Scot, friends and my favorite fur monsters.  My girlfriend and I are hitting up an orchard, I have a date night planned and I'll be celebrating my dad's birthday!  Maybe a glass of wine or two will help ease my Wednesday blues... 

As long as I can remember I have really enjoyed mixing bold prints together.  Check out my Pattern Mixing 101 post from last year here!  This look is pretty tame because it features black and white- but it's one of my favorites!  This Loft skirt has been in my closet since 2007!  I distinctly remember being in college and buying this (expensive for me at the time) skirt and feeling so grown up.  So here I am- an actual grown up- still wondering when I will actually feel like it!
