Breathe in the autumn air. Comfy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, boots, football, apple cider, corn mazes, bonfires, Halloween…. These are a few of our favorite things. From fierce fall fashion to fun fall festivities, October kicks off what we might debate to be the actual most wonderful time of the year. Sorry December, but you’re just too dang cold in Chicago.
As the temperature slowly drops, it’s time to bring out your fall clothing and enter a total layering state of mind. Layering not only keeps you warm and cozy, but it also adds interest to any outfit. Don’t hide under a heavy coat just yet. Light jackets, scarves, cardigans, sweaters and tights are essential fall pieces and, if layered well together, will advance your fall look and provide A LOT of outfit choices. But the greatness of fall doesn’t stop at clothing. Let’s talk about décor for a second. Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations are so fun! From Trick or Treat signs and serving dishes, Let’s Get Boozed cocktail napkins, to pumpkin scented candles, the décor at Vintage Charm will have you planning a fall get-together before you leave. Get inspired! See below for some of our fall favorites. Hint: There’s lots of plaid, comfy sweaters and punny signs. All available at Vintage Charm now!
