Weekend Wants: Everything Express for Fall.

It is so hard to think of Fall when this week our temperatures were between 70 and 80 degrees and the high tomorrow will be 86. But I ain't complaining as I am in no way rushing Fall. However, almost like every person - and like every blogger on earth lol - I 1000% absolutely love Fall fashion. And to tell you the truth my closet isn't suffering in terms of sweaters, booties, scarves, sweater dresses or ponte pieces. But it never hurts to add on a few pieces and I have got my eye on you Express. I haven't been to this store in months but make no mistake that when I go sometimes this Fall, I will be picking up a few items from my favorites (on the collage below).

Express has been a favorite store of mine since when I finished high school and that was almost 20 years ago - I just aged myself lol. Yes, they have always kept up with the latest trends and you could always count on Express for date night and club clothes. But at the same time they have always had great pieces for work like their infamous button-down Portofino Shirts or their Editor Pants. They are also well-known for their great jeans - there is a pair for everyone. I still own many dresses, shirts and sweaters from Express - I have always loved their sweaters and purses, especially clutches.

This Fall 2017 Express' fashion game is on point with lots of cold-shoulder, lace-up, corset style, ruffles and cut-out details incorporated in their hundreds of sweaters, tops and dresses, as well as tank tops, pants, skirts and even some bralettes. They are incorporating velvet in a lot of their clothes as it is such a classic and on trend material this Fall and Winter season. This year again they came out with a brand new faux leather collection they have had for years which they have named "[minus the] leather" collection and clearly this year I am enamored with the hip and modern mini skirts from this collection. The [minus the] leather pieces all feel like real leather - soft and buttery. And I would seriously love to add almost every single one of their sweaters, for real. Last but not least how pretty is the Blush (with mauve undertones) Corset Waist Sweater Dress?! I also am in love with the very Classy, Modern and Elegant White Jumpsuit. I think it is so unique, beautiful and classy. It would be a great alternative for brides to wear on their wedding shower and I can see it work for your Holiday parties and New Year's Eve too - yes, I was just thinking that far ahead.

I have no idea how I narrowed it down to just 11 favorite pieces but come to my closet please. What are you currently eyeing at Express?!
