Happy, Happy Monday!

Truth be told, going back to school shopping used to be one of my favorite times, and I have to admit that around this time of year I always miss it just a little! :)

Anywho, I received a couple requests asking about fall fashion trends, and if I could put together some back to school fashions that are affordable and easy to follow, so, here I am with just that in the form of accessories, colors and trends for Fall 2011 that I put together!

Now, I have not been in school in many, many years, but I know some of you who read my blog are, so, I pretended I was young again...hehe...and came up with some fun, affordable, fashion ideas and trends for you! Enjoy!

The newest trend, which might be unfamiliar to many is the Peplum trend, which I had to fully understand as well. It is pretty much a more straight upper part that bells out a bit at the bottom if that makes sense.

Scarves have always been in fashion and are perfect for Fall and carrying you into Winter, but this season we are seeing them not only worn the traditional way around your neck, but as a belt too, so, you might want to grab a couple that are lighter weight to rock that way!

Remember that you can always pull things or pieces from the trends that you like and work best for you and you by no means do you need to sport them all! For me, I am conscious about my hips, just my thing, and so, the peplum blazer I feel accents that area and might not work for me, but I will give it a try in a store to see!

What trends do you think you will be sporting? Feel free to share your thoughts below in the comment section, as always, and tell me what you are looking forward to wearing most!
