Today’s guest post comes to you from a fellow attorney and fashion blogger named Brittany from Lawyer Lookbook. Brittany always has the best work wear looks!  You’ll never dread dressing ul again if you follow her style advice!

Hi, everyone, my name is Brittany!  I am from Nashville, and am the writer behind the blog, Lawyer Lookbook.  I am so excited and honored to guest post today on Bright on a Budget! A little about me: I am an attorney and have practiced law for nearly 3 years now, and was recently elected to serve as Town Court Clerk for my small town (right outside of Nashville), where I oversee the day-to-day operations in the Clerk’s Office for 3 different courts- general sessions criminal, traffic and juvenile traffic court.  Fall is my favorite season, and I am excited to share five trends to try this fall!

1. Chunky Sweater

A quality chunky sweater is a major fall must-have.  I love layering chunky sweaters over basic button-downs to create a sophisticated casual look that will keep me warm in the cooler temps.

2. Faux Fur Vest
Every gal needs a fabulous faux fur vest.  This faux fur vest is hands-down my favorite.  I love the cut and the length is perfect. I love wearing it in unexpected ways.  It looks so chic paired with jeans and a top, or, even over a skirt and top (see here).  The styling possibilities are endless!

Plaid is so pretty in the fall and winter months.  I love wearing plaid skirts to work!

4. Classic Stripes
Stripes look amazing year-round.  You can’t go wrong with a classic striped turtleneck to wear at the office with skirts, or, to pair with jeans for a more casual weekend vibe.

5. Faux Leather Pencil Skirt
This faux leather pencil skirt was quite possibly one of my favorite purchases last fall.  I love the faux leather material and the rich brown hue.  This skirt is gorgeous, and perfect for transitioning into cooler months.  I love wearing it with turtlenecks and booties, or, a button-down and stilettos.
