Remembering Oscar de la Renta

Dressing for Fall-The Ladylike Way

    I love fall, and after browsing through my Instagram I can tell so many others love it because it's the start of "boot season, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and sleeveless excursion vests."  If you aren't exactly a fan of this typical fall look (or PSL's), why not check out a few other suggestions that are just as appropriate for fall?  It's totally okay to wear ecru colored jeans after Labor Day!  They create a clean look when paired with…
