As thrilled as I am to see "Colorful Coats" will be in this Fall, it broke my heart to know that I won't be able to rock it. Why? Because it's not going to get cool enough here in Phoenix. So for all you ASFO fashionistas who live in a hotter climate where we don't get the changing of the leaves and the brisk fall air, I have a solution so you can still stay right on trend for Fall 2013.....blazers.
Who is the woman?
Your everyday woman.
Where is she going?
The grocery store, work, school, the movies? Anywhere.
What is she wearing?
This look is so simple to replicate it's not even funny. You ready for this? Grab that little leopard blouse that I know you have, cut up a pair of your old high school jeans and make them into shorts (remember it's still hot for us West Coast-er) and throw on your favorite bright colored blazer. Blazers are like light "heavy coats", and they add that pop of outerwear color that the East Coast-ers get to wear in their coats. YOU'RE DONE! TA-DA! You can accessorize however you want. If you're really missing the Fall, wear very small shafted, low booties to finish off your outfit.
