Quick it's almost here

Fall is creeping up on us at a rather quick pace. I know some of you hate the idea of summer ending (Mom) but I look forward to fall. It has always been one of my favorite seasons. I love the colors of the leaves, the jeans and sweaters, rugby games (the hubby started practice last night),football games, crisp air, carving pumpkins and the smell in the air. Fall is rivaled in my mind by spring. The one bad thing about fall is that it's followed by winter. Oh well. All good things must come to an end...right?! I thought I would start to show some of the clothes I am drooling over this fall.

I saw this jacket live and in person at Gap the other day and just couldn't keep my hands off of it. I won't be getting this (it's almost $300) but I think it's so great.
This Cowl neck sweater (also from Gap) is so fabulous. It could even be worn with a long sleeve shirt under it when it gets cooler.

One more outfit from Gap and I'll move on. Isn't this the greatest? Looks a little casual but add heels and you are off and running. And I think my pink alligator heels would be perfect! I guess for today I'll stay in the Gap family since they are so easy to shop together. Here are some favorites from Banana Republic. This is a perfect football game outfit.
I love the pop of color. And I already have these jeans.

I've decided for this fall I need a pair of everyday boots. I have dressy ones but not an everyday pair. Here are a few from PiperLime that caught my eye.

I like the brown and black together. The brown actually runs up the entire back of the shoe.

The idea of a small heel is appealing for everyday but now that I look again these might be a bit too dress for what I'm envisioning....but I still really like them.
I have no words. I just love these shoes. They are the perfect height, color, everything.
I like the chunky heel on this one. A little lift but easy to walk in at the rugby pitch.
The most casual of the group. Bet they are super comfy.
Looking back at the shoes I selected seems I have a thing for buckles. Strange. I should look at my other shoes and see how many of them have buckles.

More fall clothes next week. Have a nice weekend.
