If you're a fashion magazine addict like myself, you know they're already giving sneak peeks of the fall fashions. One trend I'm happy to see is metallic leather. Why? Cause I've already got some my closet... since last year! I just never got around to wearing it. Well, it's gonna see some action this year by golly! There's just one problem. There's that tricky transition period between summer and fall when you start craving the darker, richer colors, yet, it's still too warm to bring out the wool coats and sweaters...what to do? I usually solve this dilemma by wearing light weight fabrics in darker colors. I also skip the tights and scarves. But like the title says, this is just a preview. I haven't quite got a hankerin' for dark rich colors yet. I'm still having way too much fun with my brights, shorts and espadrilles.
I'm marking "wear something sleeveless" and "high waist" off Jassifer's BFSC. I'm naturally high waisted and I do everything in my power to try and hide it; usually by wearing something long over it or I don't tuck my top in. Now that I think about it, maybe that's why I didn't wear this skirt; because of it's high waist. Hmmm.
Note to self: Do not pose with hands fully in pockets!

When do you start thinking about fall trends?
Are there any you're looking forward to?
You'll notice I'm wearing two different pairs of shoes. Which do you like better the burgundy pumps ===========================>
or the black booties?
