How to Wear Fall Fashion Trends Now. Plus, it’s Kristin’s First VLOG!

Notes about my VLOG: Apparently I invert the word “for” for the word “about” a LOT. Apparently I use the phrase “you guys” a LOT. Apparently I use the word “ya’ll” a LOT. Apparently I look like I roll my eyes a LOT.  Oh and holy crap I need to slap on some self tanner and amp up the workouts. I hope that wasn’t too painful for YA’LL to watch. HA!

So, as I mentioned in my VLOG, I’m starting to pine for Fall…Fall fashion that is. I’m still enjoying all the fun that Summer has to offer and I’m looking forward to many more family fun days at the beach, but a piece of me wishes that we could just fast forward a few months, so I could bust out the fabulosity that is Fall fashion…but alas, I live in Florida and I have a whole lotta warm weather ahead of me, so here are  some ways we can all incorporate the beautiful Fall trends into looks that we can wear when it’s still sweltering out!

topshop camel skirt

forever 21 camel sandals

Camel has been HUGE on the runways and although I’d love to be sportin’ it in the form of a gorgeous coat…I’ll settle for this adorable skirt from Topshop. I’d love to wear it with a striped top like this Ruche pretty.  I think camel and red is such a gorg color combo! If I’m not in my flops during the day I’m in flat sandals like this Forever 21 pair, which is a total STEAL at $10.80! So very BonBon Deal of the Day worthy!

yellow steve madden trinite pumps

I’ve always loved the color grey. So, I was super psyched to see that it was a primary color for the Fall season. This look incorporates grey and another big Fall trend…bright accompaniments!  I’m dying over this Anthropologie dress and I HAD to pair it with yellow. If I could have a wedding do over I would SO use grey and yellow as my colors! On a side note…I have these Steve Madden pumps in blue and they are sooooooo delish!

Fred Flare Red Dress

I’m up for just about anything when it comes to animal prints…but I know it’s a bit too much for some people. An easy way to rock an animal print without feeling like it’s overpowering is in handbag form. How cute is this Marc by Marc Jacobs cross body bag that I found at SO cute right?? Worn with a tomato hued frock like this one from Fred Flare and it would be one smashing look IMO! Doesn’t the dress look like it came straight off the Mad Men set? And that brings up yet another Fall trend…ladylike wear!

Well, there you have it folks. That’s a small peek into how I’m going to make it until I can bust out the REAL Fall fashion! I’m also lovin’ Rosebud Network Member’s Spry on the Wall’s take on my beloved SJP! Check out how she took a look of Sarah Jessica Parker’s and interpreted it for herself!

    Dear Kristin,

    I so enjoyed seeing you and hearing your voice… as if I’d know you a tiny bit better now! Be encouraged – you did great on the vlog!

    How much fun to be thinking ahead fashion wise… as a former Floridian, I miss it sometimes! You get to live it. but of course I also remember at times getting a bit fed up with the over-abundance of sunshine and warmth.

    Thank you ever so much for your continuous encouraging comments on my blog! That means so so very much to me – especially now!

  2. Ilene says

    i have those flat, tan sandals from forever 21. they are one of the best finds – cheap but great look. i should have def. bought more than one pair. 🙂

  3. Laura says

    hahaha- i loved the VLOG! and your note about the “vlog”… so funny. You Looked FINE and sounded FINE! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my blog! looking forward to catching up on your all’s more often!

  4. kristin says

    What a wonderful cause Kristin! I had no idea, feeling guilty since I recently cut off my long hair. Great Vlog, feels very personal and nice to see you as a person:)

    Have a wonderful day!

  5. Lulu says

    LOVE the red/white striped top and the polkadot Anthropologie dress! You find the cutest clothes to share. I’ve got an urge to go shopping, curses to the “consertative” budget/spending we are practicing at home! 🙁

    Happy Monday!

  6. Maddy says

    Unfortunately, I can’t check out the VLOG at work, but I will check it out when I get home tonight. Locing those yellow Steve Madden pumps!

  7. Val says

    I’m so ready to pull out the fall stuff too! In fact the 2nd week in August, my family is doing a stay-cation and the 1st day, the girls and I will pull out ALL their clothes and see what we need for fall and what we need to get rid of. Always a fun time trying things on and getting the closets cleaned out.
    Good job on the Locks of Love! Your hair looks great. My daughters have both done that. My son has alopecia areata so we knew he’d never wear a wig, but can see how traumatic conditions like this can affect other kids.

  8. J. says

    Nice job on the vlog! The first go around is always a bit nerve wracking but you really seemed like a pro!
    The haircut is great as well…I donate my hair to Locks of Love whenever I can. The first time I did it I cut of 20 inches! Yes, I went from crazy long to crazy short!

  9. The Lil Bee says

    I love that you did this, Kristin, you are such a good person:) My sister-in-law did it once, as did my friend, and I know I will one day whenever I chop off my own locks. Also, you are WAY harsh on yourself! Those arms are toned and you look adorbs!

    PS: Thank you so much for your sweet comment of concern yesterday. Now that Feather Report is back to normal, it seems so silly to have been freaking out about it going temporarily kaput. Crisis averted…that’s what I get for trying to do my own HTML code, I guess! xoxo

  10. Salt says

    I think you did great! And you look fabulous and I love your necklace.

    You were far less awkward in this vlog than I ever am in mine. 🙂

  11. Jill @ Teenage Bride says

    Don’t worry I overuse the word fabulous lol. Love those shoes, I bought the cutest pair this weekend.

    Fall is my favorite time of year, I am so looking forward to it!!! Hope you had a great weekend!!

  12. Jenny says

    Okay, first let me say that you are so adorable (again, hair is fab), I loved the VLOG! Well done! Next, thank you so much for featuring me as your Rosebud link of the day! Many, many thanks!! Also, completely loving that Anthropologie dress. xoxo Jenny

  13. Lucky Dame says

    You are just so adorable! I love that necklace and your hair looks fab! Awesome vlog to start a Monday.

    I’m all about Fall fashion, I’m a hard-core sweater girl and keep the AC cranked just so I can wear them in the summer at the office. 🙂

  14. Selma says

    Yay on your first Vblog. 🙂 Hair looks fabulous, too. 🙂 Am so catching up I totally missed that donation. Great thing you did! 🙂 Those Steve Madden pumps look amazing. Need a pair! Not in yellow though. 😉

    Not looking forward to fall right now. However, ask me again in a month and I CANNOT wait then. 😉

    Have a great Monday.

  15. Kaitlyn says

    props to you for doing a vlog! Takes guts to do that! Don’t be so hard on yourself – the “fors” and “y’alls” aren’t noticeable. And your arms look fab 🙂

  16. Surferwife says

    Your hair looks fantastic. I am going to get my hair done today but I have been told they don’t accept colored hair. And we all know mama needs her blonde highlights.

    I only double dared you but know I was prepared to double DOG dare you.

    Have I thanked you enough for making me a featured rosebud? I have gotten a lot of followers because of it this past weekend. Thank you, thank you!!

    I need that Anthropologie dress. I think a visit is in order. Luckydame: you down to come with me this week?

  17. Mande says

    Kristin- LOVE your VLOG!! Great job! Your haircut is so cool and I am inspired- may be cutting off my hair for Locks of Love soon. The fashion finds are so fabuous…want that grey dress….those SM pumps, and Sarah Jessica always looks so amazing. Happy Monday!! xo

  18. Jessi says

    I can’t even believe I’m admitting this, considering how IN LOVE I am with summer, but just this weekend I started thinking about fall fashion, too!! Must be my the fun fall stuff that Avon will be selling via their Mark line… I was checking ahead and there is some seriously cute stuff! We should collab on this in the next couple months… 😉
    xoxo J

  19. Johanna says

    Fall + Fl= oxymoron 🙂 hahaha….so glad I moved away to a world of seasons! Yellow pumps…yes!!! Vlog…yes!! you’re soo cute!


  20. Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl says

    Congrats on the first vlog, Kristin!!! :)) Always excitign to see what bloggers sound like hehe 🙂 Not sure what you’re sayign about the self tanner though!! I kind of really liked how your skin looked against your top’s color AND how this top looked against your green-ish wall! Did you do all of that on purpose? It looks so camera perfect that I just need to aks, you know! 😉

    Also congarts on such a meaningful hair cut! Your hair looked great before and it looks great now!

  21. Leia says

    Your vlog was TOTALLY AWESOME! It’s so nice to be able to hear/see one half of the team behind Bon Bon Rose, and it really felt like we were in the same room when I was watching your vlog! And thank you both for coming up with the Rosebud network, I’ve discovered so many blogs because of it… you girls are truly fabulous!! xx

  22. Sherin says

    Loved the vlog! It was great. The organisation you donated your hair seems so fantastic. And I love being a Rosebud. I’ve discovered other blogs and have people come to my blog as well.

  23. The Owl's Closet says

    kristin, u did an awesome job with ur vlog!:) it’s so nice to see/hear ya! ooo im glad gray is a big color this fall, too. the color has definitely grown on me in the past few years (in all shades lol). also, love the yellow pumps!

  24. Emily says

    OMG I totally have the same gray polka dot dress from Anthropolgie on my wish list/saved for later cart! I love the Ruche top too.

  25. Miti says

    Hey Kristin! It was nice meeting you in the vlog. You did a great job, which is more than I could say for my first one :o) I’m also starting to think about my brown suede boots. I love the fall and all it’s fashions but I just hate what’s lurking around the corner, winter. YUCK!! I hate it with a passion.

    Anyways, love the get-ups you put together. Very cute! I’m glad you came to visit me on my blog cause now I’m enjoying being a Rose Bud! Keep up the good work!

  26. lisa says

    Nice VLOG debut! You have a great speaking voice and come across as articulate–no need for the self-deprecating comments in the post. 🙂 Ooh, and your new ‘do looks fantastic!

  27. shelby Bukhenik says

    LOVED the vlog and you have me thinking I am gonna just keep letting the hairs grow to donate to locks of love!

  28. Christine Vi says

    You look wonderful! I came back from vacation last week and it’s taken me a long time to catch up! You’re very natural in front of the camera! Great first Video Blog!

  29. iheartkiwi says

    camel is so classic. my grandma has the most beautiful camel coat.

    i just did a little fall shopping myself… and by “a little” i mean i did major damage at the nordstrom anniversary sale and urban outfitters yesterday!

  30. Lilly Rose says

    Hi Kristen,

    don’t worry, you are doing a great job! It was nice to hear your voice and I like your red dress =). I am also looking forward to autumn fashion, even if I cannot imagine to wear long pants any time soon =)).


  31. drollgirl says

    you are looking good in the vlog! and you are so brave to do that! i can’t even record my outgoing voicemail without getting mad and re-doing it 4 million times!

    it has been 100+ degrees here lately. miserable. FALL SOUNDS NICE. 🙁

  32. Tara says

    You are so stinkin’ cute!! Wonderful vlog!! And beautiful hair cut!!
    Doesn’t it feel great to do something great for someone else!! If I could actually get my hair to grow I would donate it also:)

  33. Clare says

    Okay that vlog is awesome. You have a great clear speaking voice and you look GREAT you are sooo pretty Il love the color of your hair. Please do more of these. I think you may have found your hidden talent

  34. Elizabeth Marie says

    OMG I MISS YOU! You are so freaking adorable. And you’re so gorgeous. And I forgot to tell you how awesome your hair looks. And I must see you soon. And I wish we could set up our laptops next to each other and work! 🙂 Ohhh and I love you!

  35. Traci B says

    OK those Steve Maddens are DIVINE, FABULOUS, GORGEOUS GREATNESS!!! LUV LUV LUV THEM!!! I think a hot pink pair would look fab with the new dress I wore to a wedding last weekend.

    I loved your vlog! It was so fun putting a voice to your face & words! Keep up the good work!

  36. chantele says

    What a great vlog, I love seeing people properly. I know you post pics but vlogs mean you can properly imagine in person, by putting a voice and mannerisms to them. You were very good. I love the rosebud network and think it is a great idea. I have visited all the fashion bloggers at least once so far and am working my way through the other categories when I have free time. So GO ROSEBUDS!! lol!

  37. Gracie says

    Ahh love it! You did so well for your first vlog. I can’t talk in front of cameras which is why I will probably never do one 🙂 But I will never say never.

    Its funny that you are wanting fall trends. It’s still quite cool here so I can incorporate them into my wardrobe now. I love grey. I already have several pieces. And I completely adore those yellow Steve Madden shoes. Hot!

  38. alexandra keller says

    omg you’re so totally cute – and i say y’know a lot 🙂 and you guys. and some others things that aren’t family friendly – i’m the one in the family with the swear jar…..but anyway!!!! happy to give some giveaway love – you girls are the best!!!

  39. Leeann @ Join the Gossip says

    Congrats on the vlog! Super awesome. I love it so much! I have been mia from blogging so it was a great way to catch up AND I feel like I know you even better now =) It’s cool to see you and hear your voice!

    As for the fall fashion, that red and white shirt is ah-mazing! And the Stecve Maddens? Checking them out now! Thanks for posting!

  40. Rhianne says

    Kristen, I’ve been wanting to watch this since I saw it and it was worth the wait, I loved it, you did great, I would have been so nervous lol

    It feels like fall already here (meh english weather) so I’m feeling quite ready for fall as well.

    p.s. how do you have the time to do all this stuff?!

  41. Sandy says

    I loved the vlog!!! You did a wonderful job and you looked amazing!! I love the necklace!! I’m also loving all the looks you posted, great picks!!!!

  42. Cassie says

    Congrats on the VLOG! I am glad I am not the only one hankering after Autumn clothing already, in fact with every new ‘preview’ email I get I am wishing the time away!

  43. Chic Coles says

    I LOVE your VLOG! What fun! I have been dying to get one of the flip video recorders so we can start doing videos on Chic Coles. Can’t wait to see the next one!

  44. Bunny says

    I love seeing and hearing your voice, makes me feel like I have known you forever! I love your hair, you are so amazing!

  45. carma says

    look at you vlogging!!! I always love to put a voice with the face – and you did fantastic. I’m feeling that I need to hide in shame as I have not signed up to be a rosebud — only because I’m not sure I could live up to the networking with others part of the deal. I’ve cut back my blogging time considerably and am having a hard time just visiting the spectacular peeps I already visit. I’m happy that it has taken off so well. You guys with your “baby baby” blog 😉 are most deserving of this success!!

  46. Katy Mary says

    oh my god you are just too cute for words! Love the Vlog and I NEED those yellow pumps!!! They are awesome. I hear you on the fall fashion, I miss my boots!

  47. 5am je t ♥aime says
