Fall into Fashion Vol. 1

Hello CFF Readers!

What is it about fall that evokes a sense of starting fresh? Though its the season of the year where the air chills and greenery begins to brown, there's something inspiring about children going back to school, and television shows beginning their new seasons that makes us think... fresh start!

And so it is with our wardrobes. We push the tanks and tees to the back of our closet and pull out our chunky knits and light jackets. But often, we feel a sense of dullness.... these are the same chunky knits from last year... ho-hum. The spark of fall's fresh start wanes as we feel uninspired by our fall wardrobe. Then CRASH! BAM! in line at the supermarket we see the "Fall Fashion Trends" issue of our favorite fashion periodical and think, "This is what I need! A new fall wardrobe!" but often, these 20 page spreads feature clothes that are very look specific, and maybe you can't be  "boho chic" at work!

CFF to the rescue. It's possible to incorporate Fall's greatest trends without scrapping your entire existing wardrobe, or trying to pull off the "urban milkmaid" look at the grocery store.
