The Heart OF Fall

by Amanda Jean Harris

Welcome to crisp mornings, all things pumpkin and dashes of plaid. Fall arrives with a decidedly boho flair full of fringe with cozy capes and sweaters chic and chunky. Leather leggings are the season’s must-have staple along with layering kimonos and fur vests.
