We are back in my hometown of Amherst, Ohio for a quick family visit. Coming back to the town where I grew up brings back so many childhood memories. Amherst is a small, charming town with cute shops, fun little restaurants, and friendly people. I always feel such a difference arriving here from the big city. It takes me about a day to adjust to the pace of my days here, but I find it calming and therapeutic. One of the things I love most is the watching the change of seasons. Right now, the trees are bursting with beautiful, fall colors, and the air feels crisp. I can even smell the change in the season. During our visit, we celebrated my mom’s birthday, toasted with champagne, and enjoyed being together. The happiness of home, and the love of family makes me feel complete.
I went on a sweater search in preparation for the chilly Ohio weather. I tend to like dressier, fitted sweaters and I’m always challenged in finding styles that I truly love. The Express fall collection made it quite simple for me. If you’re looking sparkle this season, which I always am, Express is your one stop shop. I found several pairs of leggings, shimmering sweaters, and a few great jewelry pieces. I love the design details in the Fall collection. Each piece has a special element of style, that makes it unique.
For a day of wandering throughout my hometown, I’m styled in a Metallic Marled Dolman Sweater, and leather like Scuba Leggings from Express. I’ve accessorized with their Pearl Bauble Necklace and Square Rhinestone Cocktail Ring. The Crystal Vermeil Earrings are from my collection. I kicked up my heels in a pair of sassy “Giuliana” Booties by Michael Kors, and the adorable Mini 5 Zip Tortora bag is by Rebecca Minkoff.
My Fall look for my hometown visit was shimmering, cozy, and fabulous. The sparkling sweater and edgy leggings fit my trendy style and made me feel glamorous at the same time. Check out the Express Fall collection, and let us know your favorite styles. They have incredible sales right now as well. Happy shopping!
