I know it’s coming early, readers, but it’s been getting breezy/chilly in and around Chicago…so beware that the following pictures may have a fall look to them. On the other hand, a lot of the September issues are out, so maybe the fall theme is only fitting. I got InStyle yesterday and have been savoring all 500+ pages. I have yet to see the highly anticipated Vogue September issue, but I’m anxiously awaiting it. Despite the fact that I can’t actually afford anything in the Vogue September issue, I still can’t wait to page through it while watching the Devil Wears Prada and drinking tea. It’s really the little things.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I love looking through September issues to get ideas for what I might want to look into for fall and winter. The prices in many of the September issues are, well, a bit pricey. Though, InStyle does have an “under 100″ feature this September, which has some nice pieces for fall at decent prices. Because fashion can be cyclical in some ways, you may be able to find some “newly trendy” pieces at resale shops (hello 90s attire). I also found this interesting article about outlet stores that you never knew existed (some of them were even surprising to me!). You can check out the article here.
2) Colored pants are a nice alternative to more traditional black and gray pants, especially in warmer months. I tend to find colored pants in places like Gap and Ann Taylor Loft. You can pay around $10/pair if you go when they are on clearance. Many stores have different “fits” which end up fitting differently, despite being all the same “size.” I always find this confusing, so I try on everything and if I find a pair of pants that fit well, I will often get them in more than one color. I am not a huge fan of pants shopping, so if I can find a pair at a good price that fit, it’s easiest to just get whatever colors I like and be done with it!
I last featured these pants in summer, seen here:
Anyone else enjoying September issues? Have their eyes on anything for fall? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so much!
