Do you feel it? That slight nip in the air inkling to fall's arrival? Living in Florida, the seasonal changes are subtle, but if you pay attention you'll notice a drop in humidity and a cool Gulf breeze hinting to the promise of cooler fall weather on the way. Wherever you live, I'm sure you've already started to experience your own Fall sightings! My newest Colleen Lopez Collection is brimming with everything you'll need to look and feel fabulous for all the cooler days and nights up ahead. I wanted to give you a peek at my favorite "must haves" of the season and how to have great style while staying on a budget! Here's a few of the things I'm falling for this season...
The Game Changer
The easiest way to get more mileage out of your summer sleeveless dresses and tops is by topping them off with a chic, arm-flattering shrug. My Colleen Lopez Touch of Class gets an A+ for it's great bracelet sleeve, stretchy-soft knit, and arm slimming silhouette. The best part of the euqasion is the $29 price tag - Move to the head of the class!
