Reliving the '80s and '90s and time for another Fall fashion trend. Why would I be calling it Crayon Legs? First, I wasn't the one that named the trend. Second, you'll see what I mean when you scroll down.
Here's a case scenario.
1. Get a green top
2. Get a black skirt
3. Get green tights
4. Get black shoes
See the scenario in the pictures below.
1. Get a red sweatshirt.
2. Get a denim skirt
3. Get red tights.
4. Get white sneakers.
The scenario is laid out below.
Third and last scenario.
1. Get an animal print dress
2. Get brown tights
3. Get black shoes
The scenario is pictured below.
Now that you know what Crayon Legs are all about, what do you think? Leave a comment below.
Sometimes the "blah" that comes with Fall and Winter needs a kick in the pants. Get ready. Fall fashion 2019, abstract graphic fabrics will put a "wow" into the fashion world.

Live your Fall 2019 loud and proud. Bring some attention to yourself. Give something to talk about. Bring interest. Show your colors.
Or show some subtle interest. Bring a little life into classic pieces. Wear a little abstract graphic under a blazer or jacket. Wear a subtle abstract with a single color top. Or, enjoy the little bit of color in your socks. Now that is fun!
Abstract graphics can be really fun. So many colors. So many ways to style.
Alert! Alert! Another predicted hot Fall 2019 fashion trend alert!
According to WhoWhatWear, Pistachio from head-to-toe will be the biggest fashion trend.
As you can see from the pictures above, there are different shades of pistachio. From what I can tell, the cooler shades will dominate in Fall 2019.
Whatever shade you wear, make it your own. Wear the color because you love it, and not because someone told you to wear it.
The swatch in the middle above is the true Pantone for this color. However, there are obviously many deviations from that shade.
Take this information and run with it.
This is a new one for me. I had no idea what a Bougie Girl was until I looked it up. Why am I looking up such things? Well, it's a trend for Fall fashion for 2019. So, what is Bougie Girl?

Urban Dictionary defines Bougie Girl as “Aspiring to be a higher class than one is. Derived from bourgeois - meaning middle/upper class, traditionally despised by communists.” So in modern-day English, someone who is bougie is creating an air of wealth or upper class status
I'm not in any way advocating for spending more than you earn. There are ways to mimic the looks you see by using sites like Poshmark and Mercari. It may take some time to find the pieces, but you can rock these looks without a ton of money.
As you can see from the above, I have mimicked the entire outfit and all from Amazon. Not hard to do.
Back to the Fall trends for 2019. From the picture, you might guess that I'm talking about bows. BIG bows!

Now, you're not going to wear a bow like the one pictured above (even if it was on the runway). But big bows are supposed to be in, so maybe you might choose something like those pictured below.
Time to get on this feminine fashion trend. Lovely, lovely, lovely.
Here I am again, talking about fashion trends for Fall 2019. I know, it hurts. However, Fall will be here before we know it and you don't want to be out of touch with what's in style. Do you?

Power suits are back, and they are as dramatic as ever.
If you want to get super trendy, you'll need to have shoulder pads (yes, they are back), and belts. Yes, you will want to be as dramatic as possible.
However, for those of us who live on planet Earth, some of these will do quite nicely.
Some of the feminine is being taken out of the season with the broad, sharp shoulder and oversize appearance of the trend. Don't feel like you have to get so into this. Using vintage, tradition pieces will mean that you will be on trend each time this trend comes back. Plus, you'll likely keep your beautiful, feminine appearance.
Yes, it is July and here I am, beginning to talk about Fall 2019 fashion trends. By now, most everyone has what they will wear for the rest of the sweaty heat-laden days of Summer. So, I am about to start dropping ideas for this Fall that won't blow your budget and that will be either accents or awesome staples for your wardrobe.

First off, let's talk color. Purple is a major color this Fall, and it is my absolute favorite so I am super stoked to talk about it.
This includes the "Millennial lilac" shades, deep violet, and everything in between, as well as animal print in purple.
Don't forget your mini bags. These are now being called "baby bags", but don't think that means a diaper bag. It just means that it's a really tiny bag.
Don't forget the tights and accessories. They must match. This is very reminiscent of the '80s and '90s, wouldn't you say?
I say I like it. I like it a lot.
Two staples that work in every season are the maxi skirt and the maxi dress. They are both modest and can be dressed up or worn casually.
Of course, the modesty statement is only really true if the fabric is a high quality, thicker fabric, or if the garments are lined. So, I choose wisely and carefully because I very much dislike wearing a slip.
The above skirts are my favorite of the season because they are carefree and lined. They work with a tee shirt or with a nice summer sweater.
About a year ago, I received the red maxi dress (shown above). While it doesn't fit me now, back then it was like wearing a breath of fresh air. So light. So cool. Plus, it had pockets.
Also last year, I received the above pink color maxi. I had to layer with a layering tee so that it would be modest. However, I wasn't fond of how thin the fabric was, so it was not a keeper.
I have also really enjoyed my LuLaRoe maxi skirts (purchased from Poshmark). They have a thin outer layer, plus an under layer that is thicker. They are not heavy, and feel quite silky and soft. I love the designs on these.
Overall, maxi skirts and maxi dresses are a hit. Again, just be careful that the silhouette fits your body type, and that the material is high quality.
Summer 2019 is well under way and white is one of the stars of the show. Crisp white. White on white. Monochromatic.
It's clean. It's fresh. It's bright and airy.
Professional or casual. Formal or whatever you want. White just gleams and creates a happy feel-good vibe.
So get out there (or click on one of the pictures) and get into this trend.
Bonus, if you spill bleach, it won't show up...not that I have ever done such a thing.
There are some awesome people out there, doing amazing things. Stay Positive Jewelry is one of the companies that is providing some positive reinforcement and uplift in a time when darkness would like to overpower.
Stay Positive Jewelry has high quality jewelry pieces that remind us that there is hope, to practice faith, and to find comfort in scripture.
As you see in the picture above, Stay Positive Jewelry has packaged their pieces in delicious little pouches, in vibrant colors.
I was so pleasantly surprised at the level of quality of the pieces that Stay Positive Jewelry carries. All of the pieces they sent are gorgeous and made to last.
While their selection is small, Stay Positive Jewelry has a great foundation. I love what they are representing, the vibe they sent out with their pieces. I'd say that they are definitely worth purchasing.
