Fall Shopping: 5 Spotted Trends I'm Loving Right Now....

The weather has gotten chillier in the DC area, which makes it the perfect time to shop for boots, jackets, and sweaters.  Beyond fashion magazines, I love to people watch to inspire new outfit ideas and trends that would work in my every day life.

From green military jackets to knee high boots, these 5 spotted trends below will keep you warm AND stylish through the fall and winter season.  Ready to go shopping?

Trend #1: Green Military Jackets

From the city to the suburbs of DC, I've spotted so many stylish women wearing green military jackets.

Need ideas on what to pair this jacket with? 

How about wearing these rag & bone skinny jeans and these Tory Burch flats for an easy weekend look or add a little flair and pair it with this circle skirt, these patterned black tights and these Kate Spade ankle boots.

Trend #2:  Hunter Boots

We've gotten so much rain lately in the DC area and I spotted so many gorgeous Hunter Boots on stylish DC area women.
I love my own Hunter Boots and look forward to every chance to wear them on a rainy or cold day. This season I'm ready to add these stylish boot socks once the weather really dips down.


Trend #3: Denim Button Down Shirts

This trend has been around awhile and for good reason: it's versatile and looks great on everyone!
Trend #4:Wool Fedora Hats

This trend is the answer to your 'no time to do my hair' problem! Throw on one of these stylish fedora hats and hide your hair underneath and noone has to know! As a busy mom of three, hats are my best friend weekend accessory like the fedora hat I wore here.
Trend #5: Satchel Handbags

Another great trend for style and function. A satchel bag holds more than a clutch and doesn't need to be worn on your already-tired shoulder. I love a great satchel handbag like my personal favorites here and here. Here a few more that I absolutely love: 
TGIF and Have a great weekend shopping one or ALL of these spotted DC Fashion Gal Trends! Leave me a comment and let me know which one is your favorite!

Red Lipsticks That I'm Loving Right Now

Is there anything better than a bold red lipstick when the weather gets cooler?


Clockwise: StilaNYXMake Up For EverL'Oreal


I love mixing and matching red lipsticks to also create my own personal color when one lipstick just won't do the trick.  


Necklace: Vintage (similar). Blazer: Nanette Lepore (also love this one). 
I can't get enough of deep, dark red lipsticks to welcome the Fall/Winter season!

I'm a natural redhead which means this MAC lipstick is one of my favorites.

I might start with a red lipstick and add a red lipgloss on top and perhaps another berry lipstick (like this one) on top of that for something different.

Love this look? Try this MAC lipstick paired with this Stila lipstick on top

A bold red lipstick with my favorite eyeliner

Even if you've never tried a red lipstick 'look', it's never too late.  You can blot it onto your lips for a 'lighter' look or add it on top of your favorite nude lipstick for a hint of red.  Red lipstick is a great way to brighten your day in the colder months and add a little 'wow' factor to any outfit.

Cheers!
