3 Reasons to Get Excited for Fall + Affordable Fall Fashion

GMGC, RPxNordstrom, and Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific. If you know what any of these three words mean, you’re probably just as excited as I am for fall fashion. If not, then keep reading, because these are 3 reasons to get excited for fall – really excited!


The Gal Meets Glam Collection September capsule goes live today! Yes, there’s a new collection launched every month with at least a few swoon-worthy pieces no wardrobe should be without. However, this fall season there are a few new product categories: coats, pull-over sweaters and a few stunning, vintage inspired sweater dresses! And, wow, are they gorgeous! Leave it to Julia and the GMGC team to take the humble sweater dress – which, lets be honest, can sometimes be less than flattering – and make it undeniably feminine with a nod to the structured silhouettes of the 1940s and no lack of attention to detail! These styles are proof that you can be both ultra-chic and extremely comfortable.

On September 18th, the Rachel Parcell Collection capsule at Nordstrom drops including an all new product category: outerwear! If you’re unfamiliar with the Nordstrom-exclusive line, Rachel’s effervescently romantic, yet practical and effortlessly chic style is translated into the affordable collection of every fashionable mom’s dreams! She’s a mom, she gets it. I’ve worn and loved multiple styles from the collection (seen here, and here) and love how elegant and comfortable I feel in them!

Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific

Last year we were blessed with the debut of Blair Eadie’s (Atlantic-Pacific) Halogen collaboration at Nordstrom, and the iconic triple-bow blouse that sold out in minutes. If you weren’t fortunate enough to snag the blouse the first time around, well…you are already too late to get the dress version of the coveted blouse. The good news? There is a collection of around 100 pieces launching in mid-to-late October (date announced in early October!) with product categories of skirts, shoes, belts, and suiting, and more! Get excited, because most pieces in the collection are under $100 with nothing over $250 so that you can build the modern, playful, exuberantly and unapologetically colorful wardrobe of your dreams! I mean, LOOK at this dress!!!
