Summer officially ends with Labor Day weekend. In the South, warmer temperatures will remain while the rest of the nation starts to feel a chill in the air. Warmer temps sometimes delay enjoying the hottest fall looks. Not this year!
Fall Fashion trends include a huge array of looks that are wearable while the weather is still warm and carry over into the cold temperatures we’ll feel late in the year. Some of the best looks from the runway this year include:
Animal Print—zebra and leopard were the most popular on the runway. Don’t go all out with animal print. A blouse in zebra stripes or a straight leopard skirt paired with basic black is your best bet. Leopard and zebra loafers make a simple outfit pop.
Tweed—originally produced in Scotland, tweed is a rougher surface woolen cloth. Most tweeds are flecked with different colors. In the past, tweed was reserved for business suits or a more dressed up look. Runways this year saw tailored tweed jackets paired with jeans and basic fitted t-shirts. Tweed slacks with solid simple sweaters also were spotted for a dressy/casual mix of fashion.
80’s Cowboy—giving a nod to the classic dance flick “Urban Cowboy”, runways saw classic cowboy boots paired with bootcut jeans and the obligatory cowboy hat for weekend fun. Floral or prairie print dresses worn with full cowboy boots (not booties) were a hot look as well.
Leather—while leather cowboy boots were everywhere worn with everything on the runway, leather anything was hot. Thicker belts, simply styled leather fitted jackets and leather skirts were also bold looks from several designers this year.
Hoods—mixing form and function, the hood was popular and not just for casual wear anymore. Hooded evening dresses were shown right along with hooded sweaters, jackets, and sweatshirts. A hood adds built-in protection from the cold when needed and a pretty drape of fabric in many of the non-casual hooded looks spotted on the models at major designers’ shows.
Opulent Fringe—evening looks contained fringe that wasn’t of the flapper variety! This fringe was made from beads, feathers, and crystals. The intricate work trimmed bottoms of evening dresses, backs of ball gowns, and more than one wedding gown featured luxury fringe as the showstopper at the end of a designer’s collection.
Cover-it-up Dressing—proving that less is more when it comes to showing some skin, modesty returned to the runway this year for fall. Buttoning up that shirt all the way to your collarbone was popular. Hemlines coming to the knee and right below it hinted at modesty from years past. Skin was covered up proving that some of the sexiest looks are produced with form-fitting clothes that leave things to the imagination are worn with confidence.
Check it Out—lumberjack checks were everywhere on runway models! Whether a cute hat, tailored slacks, simple shirts, or as a shirt dress, checks were made into many a cute look this year. The most popular was the traditional red and black check, however, blue with yellow and white and black were also popular check colors.
Whether you favor Victoria Beckham, Tom Ford, Givenchy, or Calvin Klein, you will find fashionable fall looks. Try any of the fall trends out and collect the compliments.

It takes less than 10 seconds for you to make a good first impression on someone. That’s about the same amount of time that it takes for the threshold of your one, two, or three-bedroom dwelling at Lafayette Garden Apartments to make an impression as well.
Doormats are the most common accessory used outside the home. They are functional, decorative, and can provide safety. The term was coined in the mid-1600’s. Judging from that fact, people have been using mats to welcome visitors, and themselves, into their habitats for close to 400 years.
Keeping dirt, moisture, and debris outside your home’s interior is the primary function of a doormat. They are used to wipe and/or clean the bottom of shoes and feet so that the majority of grime stays outside. Keeping dirt outside means the flooring, whether it be tile, wood, or carpeting, stays clean. Having the soles of your shoes dried on the mat provides the safety of not slipping.
It was customary in Biblical times to offer water and a basin so travelers could wash the dust from their feet. Doormats are the modern-day equivalent of offering the cleansing of your tootsies.
Doormats were usually made of straw or vines. Rubber, plastic, and textiles that could be woven with patterns are all materials still used to form a mat that could be placed at the entrance to your home to welcome someone. Hence the name welcome mat in today’s marketplace.
Decorative doormats can say a range of things besides “welcome”. Images, colors, materials, sayings, and shapes are all things that go into consideration when selecting a welcome mat for outside your door.
The most common inexpensive welcome mat is a rectangle of black rubber that has raised ribs to aid in getting the dirt off your shoes and says “welcome” smack dab in the middle. Variations of that mat include a sisal and rubber version with “welcome” running through the middle in red, teal, or black. There are round versions of the traditional welcome mat and versions with welcome in just about any language you may speak.
Have a favorite sports team? Fan Mats are popular so you can root, root, root for the home team and let anyone who comes in contact with your door know who you want to win in an instant. Are you an animal lover? You can find welcome mats with horses, cats, butterflies, and just about any breed of dog. One mat is die cut in the shape of a whale and shows a love of puns with “whale-come” written across the bottom.
Humorous sayings are incredibly popular and enable you to share a smile with your visitors and neighbors. Do any of things bring a smile if you were to read them on a welcome mat: “Hi. I’m Mat.”, “Come back when you have a warrant”, “Well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit, look who’s here”, “Nice underwear”, or “Welcome. Beware of Husband. Kids are Shady. Wife is Cool.” According to an online home shopping site, the best selling funny mat simply says, “Leave”.
Monogrammed mats with a single letter and made-to-order mats of the occupants last name are extremely popular. Mats that reflect the occupants' identity was a much-requested holiday gift in 2017.

Add a light dressing that you can make with fresh herbs, oil, and vinegar and you have an easy, healthy meal in minutes.
Speaking of herbs, look for basil, parsley, thyme, mint, rosemary, chives, and lemon balm right now. Boil some pasta and toss with olive oil and a couple of the herbs you like and let it infuse for an hour or two. Fresh and yummy without spending hours in the kitchen.

On occasion executives must relocate to an area temporarily due to their job responsibilities. Finding appropriate corporate housing can be a difficult task. To find the best executive lease look for the following:
A lease that that is flexible. Apartment communities in tune with their economic environment will often offer both short term and long-term leases to corporations and individuals. It is understood that executives may need to be in an area for an extended stay that ranges from weeks to months. Either way, you should be able to find corporate housing accommodations catering to short and interim work assignments.
Accommodations can be furnished, non-furnished, or a combination of the two. One executive may not want to worry about brining anything when they have to re-locate to any area for a temporary assignment. Others may prefer to bring or purchase furniture and household items that are special to them. Either way, finding an apartment complex that will provide space that is unfurnished, completely furnished, or partially furnished is easier than you think. Inquire about household items as well. Cookware, dishes, linens, cleaning supplies, basic toiletries and pantry items should be available as well, so your employee doesn’t need to spend valuable time locating the necessities to set up a comfortable home away from home when living in corporate housing.
Amenities: both basic and premium. Amenities can make a huge difference in the comfort level of the executive lease habitat. Internet, cable, water, garbage, sewage, and security should all be offered as part of your corporate housing for executives. Making certain that the person living in corporate housing has everything set-up for them upon arrival will provide much by way of good will when it comes to moving into corporate housing. If the internet service is high speed and the cable comes with premium channels or the option to obtain them, the executive is sure to be pleased.
Custom packages if requested. A luxury apartment community with experience in providing corporate housing should be able to accommodate variety when it comes to custom packages. Anything that makes an employee comfortable and would help utilize the time spent at their corporate home should be considered. It may be cost effective to include it in your corporate lease. Talk to a leasing agent about cleaning service, restaurant delivery services, or even suggestion on child care; necessary services can usually find their way into a package created just for your business.
