Fall Fashionspiration with Fall Fashion Magazines

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, InStyle, Vogue and Elle, but all my opinions are my own.

While I LOVE summer, obviously I'm stoked for F A L L as well! Nothing gets the gears in my brain going like fall fashion magazines. I love looking through my closet, pulling out fall/winter clothes, and coming up with fun combinations to wear out and about. 
I've always adored magazines, but I distinctly remember when I really started to love them. I was in my ninth grade social sciences class, and we had to make a collage of some sort by cutting out words/photos from magazines and gluing them on a piece of paper (anyone else do projects like that?). One of the magazines provided was Vogue. I remember looking through it and loving it so much that uhhh.... At the end of class I may have taken it to my next class to look through it some more (sorry, Mr. Diffin!! I did return it, lol).
Needless to say, my fashion magazine loving commenced. I loved Vogue's on-point spreads, their fun layouts, and I found a lot of new favorite beauty products through their ads. I just adored fashion magazines in general!
To gain some fall fashion inspiration, or "fashionspiration" as I like to call it, I took a drive down to the local Target and walked right to their magazine stand. Target currently has an amazing promotion going on-- buy any two fall fashion magazines (Vogue, InStyle, or ELLE) and get a $5 Target gift card!! I could find something to spend any Target gift card on in two seconds, so it was pretty great. This offer is good until the 13th, so hurry your buns over there!
After thumbing through the magazines quickly, I noticed a few common trends for Fall 2014: 
+LOTS of red, white, and blue
+Faux fur
+Layers, layers, layers

Thanks to the fashionspiration, I decided to create an outfit incorporating the trends I saw. I obviously had to bust out my FAUX FUR VEST (!!) and decided to layer it with my plaid shirt (last worn on the blog here). Since it wasn't too chilly or too warm outside, I decided to do something a little crazy and wear shorts with the layered tops. I then threw on my trusty lil booties and a simple gold watch to complete the fall look!
top: Forever 21 || vest: H&M, old || shorts: Gap || booties: Target, old

Sigh. It is SO fun to layer up, I almost forgot how great it feels. Now scoot your boot to Target and get inspired!
