The weather in the Philly burbs has changed. It’s cool in the morning, and chilly at night. Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the cool weather, and the chilly, cozy evenings. Pumpkin picking, apples that are fresh from the local orchard, and of course fall clothes.
Now that back to school shopping is done, I’m ready to do a little back to school shopping for me-without the kids. What a treat that is!
My favorite fall trend is layering, and I adore that this year longer cardigans and boyfriend sweaters are in many stores since this is both a relaxed and comfortable look, but one that hides certain assets. 😉
These are some of my favorite sweaters from Banana Republic which is one of my favorite stores since they have fashionable clothes that also are classicly styled so you can wear them year after year. I think my favorite of the ones above is the cardigan with the multi-colored ruffles. It’s juts so adorable, and feminine.
Banana Republic has a great deal on shipping right now, and if you do some hunting you may be able to find some cute sale sweaters in your size. They also are offering 30% off on some of the fall sweaters that just came out.
I found several that were affordable, and a few sale tops to wear under sweaters that alone would be too chilly for fall but with a good sweater would be perfect.
I adore boots, but I’m not one for fancy boots. I much prefer my Uggs-since my feet are perpetually cold all fall and winter long. I also love rubber boots for working in the garden and rainy days. I picked up a pair of really adorable and stylish ones from J. Crew’s outlet about 2 years ago that are my standbys.
This year I plan to branch into other kinds of boots as well. I’d love to find a pair of brown boots that I can wear with jeans or tights and a dress.
Of course I have a budget to stick to so it may be the end of the season before I find anything that fits my feet and my budget.
Shoebuy. is offering $5 off a $50 order plus free shipping, so I may check them out for fall boots.

Be on the lookout over the next few weeks as stores hold fall sales. Many stores get fall clothing as early as June, so they will be looking to move the first of their fall lines through the stores to make room for winter merchandise.
One place you can always find all seasons of clothing is at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s. If you like to bargain hunt, and know your prices and your budget you can find some fab deals there.
This weekend Sears is holding a Friends and family event where you can get from 5-20% off all items in the store. Clothing at Sears will be 15% off with the Family & Friends sale AND you can earn coupons for a future purchase. If you shop sale items this could really add up to great savings.
