Fall Trend 2011 series // Malori of Sunday Morning Sugar (+ a giveaway winner!!)

From the first day I got to know today's guest blogger, she has always been the sweetest thing! I actually got the chance to meet her outside of blog world way back in Chicago at my first craft fair. She is one sweet cookie - love her!

*** 

Hello, hello! I'm Malori from Sunday Morning Sugar and when I have the time I put fun handmade goodies in my etsy shop Jacques and Jill. Over on my blog I talk about food, fashion, and my life as a student in Chicago. I hope you'll stop by and say hello when you're done here :). 

I  was thrilled when Ilene asked me to guest post for her while she was away. I've been a reader of her blog pretty much since the beginning and now I can officially say that I was a part of Much Love, Illy :). She asked me to share about the fall trend I'm looking forward to the most this year and I immediately started to brainstorm about all the things about fall that make me happy. In the end, two things really stood out to me--bright lipstick and subtly patterned tights. 



 
In the fall and winter, I tend to get a little sexy. When everyone switches from cute summer dresses to baggy sweatpants and huge coats, I tend to up my fashion game. This will only be my third real fall/winter as I grew up in Arizona and I absolutely loathe the frumpy yucky feeling that winter brings. So I encourage you to get sexy too :). It perks up those cold days and, if you're a single lady like me, maybe you'll meet a handsome boy who you can cuddle with during the impending winter!

Looking great definitely does not have to break the bank. I'll be stocking up on all sorts of patterned tights from Nordstrom Rack to wear this fall. I've got quite the collection of lipstick but I'm certain I'll be buying new shades of that as well.
