These boots will give you a touch of fall and sexy when paired with this camo jacket and HSFT wristlet.
HAVE SOME FUN TODAY - It’s usually chillier temps, cozy sweaters and fuzzy boots for many of us this time of year, but instead we’ve been fighting off a heat wave. Velvet, vintage inspired furs, blazers, 70’s plaid and belted coats are Fall 2017 trends that will leave us in a hot flash.
So how to get a seasonally appropriate without slipping on vintage denim cutoffs and flip flops? The transitional season is upon us, lets call it Fall-ish, but you still can find a way to infuse your look with key autumn-inspired pieces that will work for unusually warm days.
With the chilly temps I the morning and afternoon heatwaves, it’s best to work with lighter fabrics and layering pieces that can easily be taken on and off. Think cotton or light wool blazers, or a silk sleeveless shell under a classic black tuxedo jacket (Jennifer Aniston rocked this look just this week for a dinner in LA...). Pair the sleeveless jumpsuit with a blazer or add tights or leggings to a shirt dress. We love our HSFT slouchy tanks for extra comfort and style under any great jacket.
All About Them Boots
You can incorporate a fall feel with a great boot and it doesn’t have to be fur lined. Suede booties with laser cutout designs, or peep-toe with a block heel give you an easy seasonal feel. Choose a darker tone in a brown or black and pair with the season’s hot new comeback must have, the denim skirt or with dark rinse, high waisted jeans. (We love this pair from Mother Denim called “clean sweep”.)
You can even rock the mid-calf Frye boots you love to wear this time of year, just pair with shorter skirts or even shorts and keep the rest simple.
The Colors Of The Season
Take your pick from the fall palette of colors that are on trend for the season... Red was a major statement on the runway and is everywhere for fall. Opt for your dark denims and jewel tones like emerald green and deep maroon red; even if it’s in a lighter fabric or a shorter sleeve.
You can’t get more seasonally appropriate than a vest for fall. And while we usually would think to pair it with a longer sleeve or over a thin sweater, vests are a perfect addition to a sleeveless or short sleeve blouse or shell to pull off the feel of the fall. Erin Andrews of Fox NFL works the sidelines every Sunday during football season and is always stylish no matter the weather.
She recently posted her latest game day look on Instagram during the unusually warm weather, pairing a silk camisole, dark skinnys, and a sleeveless sweater vest with wide lapel. “I was battling this week on what to wear and still look not so summer,” she told People magazine. We call that a fashion touchdown. Nicely played, Erin.
The Hair And Now
Your best accessory is often your hair and if you haven’t already, it’s time to get your hair into fall style. Get that haircut to remove the dead ends courtesy of the summer weather and add some low lights or darker tones if you like to play with color. Think chestnuts, auburns and darker blonde tones to bring you into autumn.
The Denim Skirt
It’s baaaaack! The denim skirt has returned to its former place of glory, making a big splash late summer and into fall. Pair it with your suede booties or even your mid-calf boots, sans the leggings or tights just yet, and you’ve got that fall vibe, even if you’re rocking a t-shirt or light weight blouse. There’s no better way to bring a little fall feel to your look than with a denim skirt.
Save the scarves, beanie hats (like our new luxe cashmere HSFT beanie) and the sweaters for the colder weather, but don’t stop your wardrobe from stepping into the season, even if the weather hasn’t.

HAVE SOME FUN TOAY - The "Mom Jean" started as a hilarious Saturday Night Live parody about bad "Mom Style". It's since become a real life "cautionary tale" for any of us whose life and closet has crossed the threshold into motherhood. But being a mother doesn't have to mean a "Dowdy and Dated" wardrobe.
Whether it's the "baby weight" we're now trying to hide or the practicality of our wardrobe which endures the wrath of Mom life, it's an easy way to suck the style right out of you. And let's face it, when you haven't slept in five nights, staying in your pajama bottoms or yoga pants every day is very appealing.
As they babies grow up and we become immersed in playdates, soccer games, trips to the park, and maybe even find ourselves back in careers, some of us have forgotten to put the fashion back in our closets. Avoid the Frump and just say no to the "Style-less". Fashion and style can still be comfortable and flattering, for moms of all shapes and sizes.
1) It's All About the Denim
Let's start with the Mom Jean thing. Ironically the high-waisted jean featured in that skit is actually back in style these days, but do yourself a favor and update your denim wardrobe. You need one good pair of jeans, but they must be from this decade. Yeah, you do look hot in that new bod after doing "Whole 30", but even if you can fit into your jeans from early 20's, it does not mean you should wear them.
Denim has changed a lot. A good pair will have a bit of give and stretch and will fit you like a glove without needing to lay flat on the bed to get them zipped. We're looking for fitted and flattering, not spray painted and muffin-topping. (We love Mother Denim and Rag & Bone on the splurge side and Liverpool Jeans and Express Denim for a budget friendly pair). You want to feel good in these jeans, so be prepared to spend more than you do on your kids clothes. This is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing in your wardrobe.
Take a friend, try on as many as you need to until you find "The One". You'll know when you put them on because you'll never want to take them off. We're sort of obsessing over the released hem look. Soccer field or with heels and fitted blazer for cocktails with your friends, they'll make you feel sexy no matter where you are.
2) It's a Shoe Thing
Shoes may be on the bottom of your body but it's one of the most important details that many woman overlook. A great pair of shoes can change they way you walk into a room, literally! And a great pair of shoes can give you instant style to an otherwise average outfit. Yes, we love those pointy toe flats and those go-to canvas slip ons, but a heel gives you reason to stand a little taller and feel a little sexier.
Even just a heel with a few inches of lift will make big difference. Wedge heels are a great way to get the height and keep the comfort and there are so many options from cork to suede. Block heels are stacked and more supportive but super chic in a strappy sandal for summer. And let's not forget a classic stiletto.
Grab those amazing jeans, a cool graphic t-shirt (our Have Some Fun Today original Tee is our go to) and a fitted jacket or blazer. Now slip on those heels. And Momma just stepped up her style....
3) Pick a Trend, Any Trend
Jeans and heels are staples and classics that transcend the trends from season to season but a great way to punch up your look is with one seasonal trend that can mix well with the rest of your closet.
Take that fitted jacket or blazer. Why not pick a jacket in the hot color of the season, a whisper blush pink or a neutral nude? Both are Pantone's Top 10 Colors for Spring. And it will go with everything. Dress it up or down and watch it become the workhorse of your closet.
Or shop for inexpensive accessories on trend, like a great bag in those fabulous colors, a statement necklace or choker. Simple details like accessories can take your style from basic to fashion forward. Being a mom is the hardest and the best job job you'll ever have but you can still look good doing it.

How To Wear It
Fashion trends are still in love with the "statement tee" paired with closet staples like your favorite "rip" look jean and a sexy platform stiletto.
Have Some Fun Today has one trend "statement tees" in different colors and styles. One of our favorite "go to" pieces in our HSFT Core Collection is the black slouchy tank, which has year round street cred, no matter what the season. Circuit training at the gym or cocktails at a swanky bar, this versatile shirt is a flattering cut for every figure.
The Classic Look of Jeans & Heels
Grab "those" jeans from your arsenal. You know the ones, they flatter your every curve and you feel sexy when you put them on. We love these rip distressed ankle cut jeans from Mother Denim . You've got instant style with our statement tank and jeans like this. Add a sexy shoe. Peep toe, stiletto, cork wedge, platform, -whatever suits you, but a little height and heel gives you instant sex appeal. We love these black suede platform peep toes from Zara .
If there's one classic staple that every woman needs in her closet, it's a well-fitted blazer. You can't find too many uses for an essential like the black tuxedo jacket we paired with this sexy ensemble. Check out this one from Zara for under $100. It's an effortless piece that makes a statement in every wardrobe, weather it's in the office or out for drinks.
Key Pieces = Smart Choices
Our HSFT slouchy tank, great jeans, sexy shoes and a classic tuxedo jacket make the perfect night out look. And for a clever nod to an on-point trend, we've topped it with our white knit HSFT patch beanie hat for those last minute winter temps still hanging on.
You can't miss when your wardrobe is full of core pieces and essentials that mix and match for day and night.

This look is so much more than jeans and a tank. Our "Have Some Fun Tonight" Gold Foil slouch black tank looks divine with our favorite Mother Denim jeans, and our go-to Sam Edelmann black heels from Target (these are fabulous, too!). An added a spritz of Tom Ford's Black Orchid perfume means you'll smell sexy when you're kissing 2017 "Hello".
We love some glitz accessories, like these from Sorrelli, to light any room. We picked the crystal cuff, rows cuff ring in gold. You can load your wrist with all those baubles your got under the tree this year. Gemstones, gold and silver tones are the right way to add glam. Our statement necklace is actually Sorrelli's Mixed Metal wrap bracelet, which does double duty as an "on fleek" look for industrial metal chic.
