Copy Cat Closet & A Look Back Link-Up: 1989 - Fall Fashion

What does fall fashion mean to me?  

Right now it's the all important leggings, tall boots & sweaters!  Oh and how about the classic french braid?!  Kinda like what i wore to the farm tour & pumpkin patch a few weeks back!  

I've SO missed linking up with Ma Nouvelle Mode & The Grant Life for their weekly Copy Cat Closet Challenge!!!  This week the challenge was the broad category of "Fall Fashion".  And like i said above what says fall fashion more than leggings & boots these days?

Check it out:

Tank:  Old Navy
Cardigan:  Old Navy 
Leggings:  Target
Socks:  husbands sock drawer (totally his crusty old knee socks from God knows when)
Boots:  Nordstrom Rack
Baby:  Isn't she cute?!?!  She's sporting jeggings & a soft furry coat from Ross

Super happy to be co-hosting with:

Since we were on the topic of fall fashion I thought what better way to look back at 1989 and check out some fun fall fashion...1989 style:

How about a nice cozy sweater?

Or perhaps a cute little updo?

And I don't care WHO you are or think you are...pleated stirrups were the people.  Raise your hand if you had them!!!


Shaping Up To Be A Mom



  1. You look so cute in your boots and braid! I haven't yet mastered french-braiding my own hair, so I never get to wear mine like that. They sure are so comfortable though. Loved your eighties flashback pics....Paula Abdul....was she cool or WHAT? Straight Up! :-)

  2. first of all, you and baby, yes, are soooo cute. 2nd, i am pretty sure i saw some pleated stirrups at target. and hammer pants. i was so tempted.

  3. *raises hand* Had 'em, and rocked 'em! LOL

    btw - that baby? Best accessory I've seen so far this season! :0)
