Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.

I can't help but get a little excited about the crisp, fresh air of fall. There's a spring in my step as life returns to normal. So long lazy summer... hello focussed fall... a new schedule and a fresh outlook.

Just about this time of year, I'm ready to pack up my summer wardrobe and gear up for a cozy new collection. Betty's Country Chic look is just what I'm dreaming of as we plan our visits to the pumpkin patch, our after school playdates and reunions of friends and family back from summer vacation.

This season, there's an obvious inspiration of down-home fashion... somewhat casual, somewhat dressy. This curious mingle is what makes this collection so interesting... it's plaid with dressy accessories, denim layered on with faux fur and fancy joggers with heels!
