Cobalt blue is really having a moment right now. I’m stoked because blue works for my skin tone. The pale pastels that are coming out this spring though… not so much. So I’ll stick with beautiful bright blue cobalt, please! I totally scored this skirt on mega sale at J.Crew after the holidays and this shirt from the Peter Pilotto for Target collection was purchased with a gift card. Don’t you love a good deal?! I know it’s strange but I love the things I’ve found a deal on more than the things I’ve paid full price for! I guess that’s the frugalista in me.
I’m crossing my fingers that this will be my last summer weather post. It’s so toasty warm here still that my sweaters haven’t awoken from their hibernation boxes quite yet. However, there is still hope! Tonight was the first night that there was actually a chill in the air! So I might be just about ready to be done with summer and dressing for fall. So excited!! In the mean time, I’m still all about color… not that you couldn’t tell!

There is a special place in my heart for Fall Fashion. I love the colors, the cuts, layers, layers, and more layers!! I just can’t get enough! But that being said, I can’t buy every single piece every year or my credit card would burst into flames! Here are my tips to bring some of the trends for this fall into your wardrobe without having to spend a fortune.
TRY A STATEMENT COAT:
Statement coats in bold prints, angular cuts, loud colors, and mixed fabrics are all over the runway for fall. But a statement coat is just that… a statement. And do you really want to shell out a lot of money to make the same statement for all of fall?? Not me! I’ll be picking up some budget coats to stay on trend but when I’m done with that statement, I won’t have major buyer’s remorse. Try some of these budget friendly options.
ADD SOME COBALT BLUE INTO THE MIX:
Cobalt is a hot hue this fall on everything from coats, to dresses, to shoes. You don’t need to spend tons of money on this trend to be stylish. Try adding just a couple of items for a pop of color to add to your current wardrobe. Luckily, this color matches with so many other colors that are most likely already in your closet. Try mixing it with orange, yellow, white, black, grey, or burgundy!
A LITTLE LEATHER, PLEASE!
This fall, leather comes in every shape and form. Lucky for us, faux leather has come a long way and is surprisingly, well… leather-like! Picking up some faux leather is a lot more budget friendly than the real alternative and a lot more animal friendly too! Try a quilted variety for a great on trend look.
