Moving From Summer Fashion to Fall Fashion

There’s a chill in the air, fall has arrived! The leaves are changing and so are the styles. The overall goal of transitioning is to bring in more Autumnal colors and to incorporate fall pieces as the weather cools, eventually shifting to all over cozy outfits. It’s best to prepare for both heat and cold since they can often occur within the same week or day! Here’s some inspiration for bringing some of both seasons into your outfits.

Let’s talk about color. The only “rule” (and I use that term loosely) to follow with summer to fall color is to look for warm colors. Light colors aren’t necessarily anti-fall! For example, use cream or ivory instead of white, or a dusty rose pink instead of hot pink or neon.

Don’t put away shorts and short skirts just yet! They’re super versatile and can be incorporated into your year-round wardrobe. To cozy them up, take advantage of tights and tall socks.
Cardigans are fantastic for the changing weather. Layer up to be prepared for whatever Mother Nature is feeling!

Crop tops have been reincarnated as cozy autumn sweaters! These are perfect for when it’s not terribly cold out yet, I think they look fantastic with a snuggly-fitting pair of pants! To get more use out of your summer crops, keep the color guidelines in mind and layer with cardigans and maybe even a scarf!

Happy fall!

Snickers Apple Pie!

I don’t need any excuse to make this! This is pure heaven in a pie plate! This is a great make and take treat for the office, that will stop you from eating the whole pie. It has apples, it’s practically health food, hahahaha. http://www.lovewithrecipe.com/recipe/415.htmlsnickers apple pie
1 pie crust
3 green apples diced
1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
15-20 mini snickers chopped
2 1/2 cup COOL WHIP whipped topping softened
1/3 cup can sweetened condensed milk
2 oz cream cheese (softened)
Instructions

Spread snickers on bottom of pie crust. Next layer the apples next. Then drizzle caramel on top.
Combine cool whip, cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk together in a small bowl and spread on top.
Drizzle with caramel and a few snickers. Place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Take out about 5 minutes before serving and top with fresh apple slices. Enjoy!
**notes: this pie is best on the first day! if you want to keep the apples from browning, you can put a little lemon juice on them
