fall fashion trends + maternity style

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, InStyle, Vogue and Elle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #inspirefallfashion  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

One of my favorite things about the arrival of fall (besides the fact that I stop sweating even inside my air conditioned house) is the change in fashion trends. I'm a girl who loves warm colors, comfy layers, chunky scarves, and boots. 

I've been pinning fall fashion inspiration images way before what's probably considered socially acceptable; so, I was super excited last week to see that the new fall fashion magazines from ELLE, InStyle, and Vogue had hit the stands at Target. Plus, now through September 13th, if you buy any two fall fashion issues, you get a $5 Target gift card back to spend on your next purchase.

After grabbing my two magazines last week, I spent a few evenings perusing them (these things are BIG + packed with goodness, y'all!) and I'm really excited to see that denim on denim and "blanket style" cardigans (think oversized, knit, and belled sleeves) are back. 

I love the coziness that both of those trends bring. Plus, denim pieces are such great investment pieces because they can be dressed up or down about a million different ways. You can also find great denim tops at thrift stores for next to nothing. I found the one I'm wearing below for only a few dollars at our local Goodwill and its' looser fit worked well with my 32 week, expanding bump.

It's still too warm here in Texas to sport a blanket style cardigan so I went with a boot and scarf that I think mimic the pattern and coziness typically found in those pieces. I could also picture this outfit with a pair of colored corduroy pants that scream fall...maybe a burgundy or a mustard color!
