Shopping Fall Trends

Last weekend on my way back from visiting my sister in San Diego, I stopped by to visit my sister/brother-in-law and the SIL and I did some shopping. I was pretty restrained, but found some gorgeous pieces at HandM, I'm gonna have to go back and snag a few of them!

Sadly, summer is quickly coming to an end. Two weeks ago, it was still light outside when I left for work and now it's dark. On top of that, all of the September issues have come out. Then, if that wasn't a reminder enough, I've heard reports of Christmas tree displays! Christmas! Geez louise. I'm trying to soak up every last bit of summer I can; wearing all of my tanks, dresses, and shorts before it's too late.

One thing that is helping ease the pain of the end of summer is all the gorgeous fall trends! There's some amazing trends coming up that I'm looking forward to sporting. 

Here's some of my favorites (click pictures to their links):

Hunter Green
This color looks great on all skin tones and pairs well with your basics, plus royal blue and rich gold.
Richly Hued Bags
I love burgundy in the fall! It pairs so weel with other rich colors and a deep colored bag adds to every outfit. Seriously want to run and buy this right now, and I'm kicking myself for not buying it last weekend! It's a beautiful color and great size.
Jeweled Collars
These pretty little pieces are all over blog land and stores. It's so chic and adds such a beautiful touch to a t-shirt and jeans or your sheath dress.

Printed Bottoms
Jeans and leggings are getting a make-over this season with lots of fun prints. Fantastic to bring some life to the cold season.
Arm Candy
I love a cuff by itself, but it also looks great paired with dainty feminine bracelets.
Jeweled Hair
I've seen blinged out hair on the red carpet, but I think it's easy to wear in real life and to the office with a chic headband or detailed barettes.

These are my favorite pieces I've seen so far, but there's so many amazing trends this fall like brocade, military details, and oxblood. I'm hoping to add just a few pieces that I can wear and re-wear for years.

What are you looking forward to wearing this season? What's your favorite trend?
