4 For Fashion & Adair Boutique

Happy Fall, Y'all!  I'm so excited that October is finally here.  It is one of my favorite months for so many reasons - cooler temps, leaves changing colors, our family trip to the NC Mountains, and of course fall clothes!  I love the deep jewel tones that you often see in fall clothes as well as the cozy cardigans and boots that are staples this time of year.

I am excited to be highlighting fall fashion on the blog with another 4 For Fashion post today.  If you are new around here, here is a little info about our fabulous foursome.  4 For Fashion is a style tribe of 4 bloggers who all believe that you can find something that fits your personal style just about anywhere.  Our ages range from 20s to 50s and our goal is to provide fashion inspiration to ladies of all ages.  If you missed my previous posts featuring these lovely ladies, you can read them here, here & here.

Today we have partnered with Adair to share a variety of fall looks.  Adair has a great selection of casual pieces as well as those that are perfect for a night out.  They also have a fun assortment of accessories that will be sure to complete your look. If you are looking for a gift for someone, they have some cute gifts such as candles, quirky signs and other household items.  One of my favorite things about Adair is how affordable everything is!  All of the pieces that I personally purchased at Adair were priced under $60.

First, let's start with my outfit.  I chose a plum colored plaid button down top for a casual, everyday look.  Plum is one of my favorite colors to wear and the plaid just screams fall to me.  The different color fabric with flowers embroidered on it on the back make the top unique.  I paired it with denim, but you could also dress it up a bit with a skirt.  You could also layer this top under a cardigan when it is cooler outside.

Adair has some pretty and unique accessories and I found several to wear with my outfit.  I love layering necklaces, so I picked a choker with a black stone and added a longer necklace with black velvet and a grey stone. I finished off my look with some brushed gold earrings by Sheila Fajl.  These are my new favorite pair of earrings!  They are lightweight, go with everything and I literally have worn them every day since I got them.

Next we have a super cute look by Rachel from Queen City Chic, our 20-something blogger babe.  Rachel chose a pretty off the shoulder top full of beautiful jewel tones.  I love the blousy sleeves!  She paired it with a taupe suede mini skirt and finished off the look with a long necklace.  Both of the pieces she chose are so versatile. You could wear the top with some skinny jeans and booties and the skirt would also look great with a solid black or white top.

LauRen from All of the F Words chose a jumper dress in the perfect fall hue!  LauRen wore a cute off the shoulder black top under the dress which brings out the black buttons on the jumper.  She added some statement tassel earrings and finished off the look with some great snakeskin booties.  The black off the shoulder top would also look good with jeans or a skirt.  And those snakeskin booties...well, they would look fab paired with jeans, a skirt, you name it!

Finally we have Barbi from Southern Blonde Chic.  She chose a duster cardigan vest with shades of plum and white.  She paired it with the prettiest plum blouse with balloon sleeves which I love.  She added a long necklace to finish off her look.  You could also wear the plum blouse with some black jeans and boots for a dressier look, or pair it with some black or tan dress pants for work.

We were really tempted to take a ride on this scooter parked outside the store!

As you can see, we all chose different looks, some dressier than others, and we found the perfect accessories to go with each outfit.  You can find all of our looks at Adair.  They have two locations in the Charlotte area:  their flagship store in downtown Concord and their new boutique in the Southend area of Charlotte.  For those of you who are not local, you can shop on line here.  They post new items all the time on Instagram so be sure to follow them for updates on all their new arrivals.  If you stop by the store, be sure to tell them that the ladies of 4 For Fashion sent you!
