Women's Fall Trend Report
Fall has officially arrived and it’s time to make room in your closet for sweaters and coats, booties , oh and time to put the straw hats away… it's time for our wool hats to get some TLC.
We’re so excited for this season and we wanted to fill you in with a little Fall trend report to make your seasonal shopping easier.
Happy First Day of Fall
Happy first day of fall, babes! Now we love summer just as much as everyone else — the beach days, the patios, the best adventures with our littles — but we are thrilled to welcome our favorite season. Now obviously the sun is still shining and the summer temperatures are still hanging on, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to build the cozy wardrobe that we've been dreaming about. So stock up on hot cocoa, plan some apple orchard trips, and check out our top fall styles.
We are wild for animal print, and when you pair that with balloon sleeves and make it as cozy as could be, we can’t possibly say no. We’re hoping sweater season rolls in soon, so we can pair this leopard jumper from Lost in Lunar with some high-waisted mom jeans and Chelsea boots.
We’ve been dreaming about this sweater dress from Minkpink ever since we first laid eyes on her. This is instantly the perfect outfit, and it doesn’t even matter where you’re going. The color-blocked chevron design brings a retro vibe and the shift fit keeps it crazy comfortable. For a day out and about, we like to pair it with sneakers, but then slip on some thigh-high boots the second the sun goes down.
Now that we’ve set our sights on this shearling denim jacket from Show Me Your Mumu, we are irate that it’s still sundress weather. But that won’t stop us from wearing it with anything and everything, and powering through the heat. With that relaxed fit, you can easily layer it over even the thickest sweaters, and the shearling lining means it’ll keep you warm when winter shows up.
If you know anything about us, you know that we are firm believers that bell-bottoms should be worn on a regular basis. So, of course, we had to bring in some autumn vibes by making them burgundy and corduroy. Try pairing these corduroy bell-bottoms from Show Me Your Mumu with a cropped sweater and some booties for a look that’s as bold as you are.
There’s a reason why cardigans are the ultimate wardrobe staple — they instantly warm up any outfit. But this year it’s all about the statement cardigan, and this bright magenta cardigan from Minkpink sure makes a statement with the cropped length, fuzzy fabric, and bold buttons.
Okay, I guess we have to accept that the leaves aren’t going to instantly turn and the days won’t be the perfect temperature the second the first day of fall shows up on our calendars, so while the days are still warm, this gauze jumpsuit from Stillwater will be the perfect go-to choice. Of course, when things cool down, all you have to do is layer on a long coat, like our favorite pink teddy coat from Lost in Lunar, and you’ll be ready to go.
One of the best things about fall is the cuddling up with a good movie and your favorite snacks, so we couldn’t have a fall outfit list without adding in these thermal jogger pants from MATE The Label. These organic cotton sweatpants will be the easiest thing to throw on whether you are running errands (try pairing them with a graphic tee to add a little extra style) or you’re just relaxing at home.

Monthly Muse: The Fashionably Broke Teacher
The Fashionably Broke Teacher, Lindsey Jednak, slaying Bohemian Mama's Feeling Love Pant and matching Crop Top!
What is a #MONTHLYMUSE?BoMa’s Monthly Muse is our way of celebrating strong women who inspire others to do great. Each month, we’ll be featuring women we think embody ambition, power, strength, and inner beauty. A BoMa Muse is driven, dedicated, and goes about her day with confidence. She’s expressive and stands for what she loves, whether it be in fashion or personal beliefs. Going further than fashion, she refuses to follow the crowd as she proudly creates her own style. We’d like to bring well-deserved acknowledgment to women who shine from within, spreading peace and positivity wherever they go. These women exude kindness and compassion while lifting others up. Optimistic, they try to find good in anything and everything and make the most of situations. The beauty of her genuine soul radiates a kind of light that brightens the day of anyone who crosses her path.
As a fourth-grade teacher from Philly, Bohemian babe Lindsey Jednak has captured our hearts for the month of September. An inspiration in both the fashion scene and the classroom, she reflects good vibes and a Boho spirit. As “The Fashionably Broke Teacher,” Lindsey has opened up to us about how she balances her passion for fashion, an established blog and social media presence, her career, and life.
When did you first realize you wanted to pursue a career as a teacher?
I think I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, but the light bulb truly went on when I was in high school and we had our senior service day. I went back to my old elementary school and helped out in a 2nd grade classroom for the day. The kids were adorable and the energy in the classroom that day truly made me realize I had to follow the path of my sister and mom being a teacher. It's one of the most rewarding jobs I have every done and every day is an adventure!
Does your career have any influence on how you dress?
My career as a teacher definitely has influenced my love of feminine dresses and skirts. I love how flattering they are and how fun it is to pair with different printed tops and booties. I also have a career that embraces fun and creativity, so I love bringing in trends into the classroom.
What role do you think social media plays in fashion today?
I think social media has an important role to connect people and bring out body positivity and uniqueness. Fashion is all about expressing yourself no matter what profession you are in and I love that I can find my favorite styles to wear and see girls that I adore in the clothes, not just from magazines. It is also so amazing to see how different trends can be translated based on a person's personal style.
As the season is coming to a close, back-to-school time is quickly approaching. Any style tips on transitioning from summer to fall fashion?
I love layering! Strappy maxi dresses go perfect with a rock tee underneath or turtleneck. Booties and a summer floral dress is also perfection in the fall. I also adore wearing kimonos as a transitional piece over everything. The more the colorful print, the better!
Balancing work with personal life can get overwhelming. Do you have any advice for other working women out there?
If you love something enough, you will find the time. Teaching and blogging can take up a lot of my time but I truly love them both so what I have found is if I stay organized and plan out your time I can do it! I have also learned that is important to make time to wind down and disconnect. Communication is key in relationships and taking the time to just enjoy your time with who you are with is what will matter most in the end. Deadlines will get done, but that conversation and laugher with a good friend and not worrying about what is going on with your phone is the best feeling.
Besides manifesting the opportunity to inspire, how else does teaching compare to fashion? In what ways do you inspire?
I think I show my students that you can accomplish anything if you are yourself and work hard. I think in both industries it is so important to stay positive and be proud of what makes you unique. I like to think I inspire my students daily to be their best and be a kind person in all that they do. In fashion, I love inspiring others to find their own personal style!
“Some women fear the fire.
Some women simply become it.”

Why We Have Totally FALLen for This Rylee & Cru Fall Collection!
When we think of the season, we think of breezy strolls through the park, colorful piles of leaves begging to be jumped in, and, of course, the opportunity for cozy cute outfits. Though it may be hard to say goodbye to summer, fashionistas look forward to this time of year. Head over heels for Rylee & Cru’s new collection, we would like to introduce you the perfect autumn pieces that will have you and your littles looking stylish from head to heels!
Fall fashion is all about warmer color tones. Opt for beige, taupe, brown, and variants of yellow, red, and orange to be one with the season. Softer colors, like olive and ivory, are also quite popular this time of year. When put together, the warm and soft colors create the visual balance that autumn is notorious for. So, mix and match as you please!
It would be a shame if we didn’t give this fluffy taupe vegan coat a mention! The Shearling Overcoat from their new collection is an awesome addition for your fall wardrobe. Feel like a chic teddy bear in this adorable taupe cover-up. Get one for your little here!
A current favorite of ours is the color mustard, a universal color that looks great on everyone. Fitting for any age, the dull/dark yellow color is versatile and great for transitioning from summer to fall. A sophisticated hue, mustard represents energy, optimism, and clarity – what a refreshing way to welcome in the season!
Autumn is a time to switch up fabrics, incorporating heavier materials that will keep us snuggled down. Unlike bulky winter knits, fall fabrics are breathable and will have you good to go from day to night.
Make cotton crepe an essential this season. With its elegant grooves for a crisp, crinkled form, cotton crepe fabric gives a flowy appearance, resembling something like an enchanting river. Cotton crepe has more support than regular cotton materials but is softer than other crepe fabrics. We’re glad Rylee & Cru has brought us the cotton crepe Sparrow Peplum Blouse!
Nothing says fall like this fabric, which can be rocked in the form of boots, bottoms, or outerwear. Arguably the epitome of autumn, faux suede is an animal-friendly material made from polyester microfiber that's woven into a thin, soft, but very tough plastic fabric. According to Plastics Make It Possible, the plastic materials are more durable than natural suede, which is made from the delicate underside of an animal's skin and often can tear. That’s why we especially love this faux suede biker jacket, which also comes in littles’ size!
Prints & Patterns
Minimalist prints are a highlight of Rylee & Cru’s fresh line. The collection features easy-to-style patterns from fun floral to dotted to classic gingham. Subtle yet playful, Rylee & Cru’s styles capture the toned-down aspect of fall while bringing the garment to life. They’re anything but plain.
Reminiscent of plaid, but a much classier version, gingham works well with fall fashion. Its distinguishable checkered pattern makes it a must-have for the season. The Button Front Midi Skirt can be styled with either a plain top or graphic sweater, as pictured! We feel that the button detail at the front gives this skirt a special touch.
They’re Absolutely Autumn-Appropriate!
When it comes to fall festivities, these styles are just as ready as you are! From going back to school, pumpkin patches, and Thanksgiving dinner with the family, Rylee & Cru has mamas and littles covered.
It may be difficult to dress for the beginning of seasons but, with R & C’s newest line, transitioning while staying on trend has never been smoother. The collection includes pieces for you and the kids, so you can coordinate your outfits with theirs! Thanks, Rylee & Cru!
