Fall Fashion & Confidence

Ok, so it always pains me to see summer go, but there is just so much to love about fall! Between the changing trees, the cooler weather, and fall fashion the only downside is that it’s one step closer to winter. Even though it was close to ninety degrees when I started back up at school – back to school shopping always gets me in the fall mindset. JCPenney has always been a go-to store for me and they nailed it with their fall collection! In the past my fall style could be described as casual and cozy, but as I’m getting older (and more confident!) I’ve been starting to incorporate more mature and daring pieces into my wardrobe. I went a little crazy at JCPenney the other day and I want to share my fall style with you!


Mixing Staples & Trends.

So I don’t know when kimonos entered the fashion scene, but I hope they are here to stay. When shopping I usually look for staple pieces that won’t go out of style like the top and boots, and then I’ll mix it up with a fun, fashion forward piece like this fringed kimono that you can find in-store or here’s a similar one online! Also let’s talk about these jeans for a second – they are a great price and they accommodate my tall frame – something I have so much trouble with! And if you hurry they are on sale for just twenty dollars!

Playing it safe.

  This outfit is definitely the most traditional ‘Morgan’ outfit. The detailed lace top is so delicate and feminine and paired with the same skinny jeans and these ballet flats it just looks effortlessly put together. This is definitely a look that fits into my ‘everyday style’ and I’m quite eager to start wearing it when the weather cools down!

Bold & Chic.


Colored pants are so fun all year round – but I especially love the colors that fall brings – bold maroons and daring mustard hues are gorgeous for this time of year! I opted for the maroon pair and kept the look simple and chic by pairing it with a mockneck top and tough boots.   I love the final look for it’s simplicity! I’ve mentioned here before that while I do love all fashion delicate and girly, black on black has a soft spot in my heart too. I love how the grey pants break up the look and add contrast to the top and boots.

Fall fashion.

If you’re looking for more fall fashion inspiration you can check out JCPenney’s fall lookbook! If you’re still trying to figure out your sense of style, that is a great place to start. I’ve really come into my own as far as fashion goes, and I can honestly say that having my own sense of style that is very ‘me’ feels so empowering! Say what you want, but being confident in the way you look is a great feeling – and that confidence can carry over into other parts of your life! There is so much that the me of years past would have never done (like travel to NYC alone!) without the confidence that I’ve gained recently. Confidence in myself is also why I’m OK with putting myself out there into the crazy world that is the internet, and why I can open myself up to the great community that has been built here with all of you lovely folk!
