September. A time when hot summer days are behind us, fall magazines are hitting the shelves, and Fashion Week is in sight. Whether its back-to-work or back-to-school, September marks the start of a season of new trends, new color palettes, new life.


Styled in September is a fashion and lifestyle blog written by me, Alley Hood. Don’t worry, I’m not wearing sweaters in July.. With SIS, I try to cascade the excitement, the fashion-focus, the buzz-worthy essence of September to my style all seasons of the year. I invite you to come peek into my personal style, home decor, beauty, and lifestyle where I look for things that inspire me as much as that first cool breeze of the season.

“Life starts all over again when the leaves get crisp in the fall.
F.Scott Fitzgerald

    2 weeks ago by styledinseptember "I spent a lot of time planning how I thought this year was going to play out, and that was crucial. Make no mistake, the little things are crucial. But the most defining of moments came about when I paid attention to the signs and trusted my gut. Chasing down dreams is equally about planning for the expected and embracing the unexpected."
