One of my favorite things about fall is the fashion. There is something about the shops starting to display boots, jackets, and sweaters mid-to-late August (while we are melting in the South!), that makes me excited for cooler temperatures and the new season. If I am honest, I am not one of those people who buys early for fall, it is hard to think about layers when hitting 90 degrees on a daily basis. But I love being up to date on the latest trends, perusing fashion mags and following my favorite designers on social media. We asked Charlotte-based stylist Kristin Heinrich for her take on fall's must have pieces. The looks she pulled together - florals, leather, touches of velvet, and killer boots, will surely have you welcoming fall with open arms!
