Embrace the Transition to Fall

With thoughts of the crisp air that is soon to flow our way, I believe we are all waiting with zealous anticipation. Boy, it sure has been a hot summer, right ladies? I am positive I’ve gone down a dress size or two with the amount of “moisture” released from this ol’ body (a girl can dream, now can’t she?).

I am super excited, as I’ve said before, to style my fall wardrobe. What tickles me even more, is National’s new fall collection. From warm and fuzzy, delicate and pretty, to a hint of the wild side, there are fall outfits to dress you for any occasion. Everyone loves a little leopard-oh don’t you worry, National has just the right amount of animal print to keep you on trend. Let’s not forget to accessorize, I’ve got the perfect new design of pearl earrings you’ll just love to showcase all season!

Here are a few of my favorites coming your way now:

Crochet Button-Front Blouse

Animal Print Kimono
Jessica McClintock

Pearl Neckline Top

Pearl Dangle Earrings
Carol Dauplaise®

Charmy Loafers
Hush Puppies®


So, fill the house with cinnamon and pumpkin goodness because fall is knocking on your door. I know, I know, it still feels like a heatwave, but as I’ve said, a girl can dream, right? Ha! Ha! Ha!

Happy fall ya’ll,

Our Seven Week Texas Treat

Occasionally, you are gifted a treasure you know will be for keeps. Here at National, our gift was and will always be, Ms. Kylee Willmoth. Kylee hails from Cypress, Texas. She attends Baylor University and we were privileged to have Kylee join our National team for seven weeks as an intern. Kylee is majoring in Apparel Merchandising with a minor in Entrepreneurship.

As I reflect on the last 7 weeks with Kylee, I recall how eager and thorough Kylee executed the tasks asked of her. The in-depth research Kylee conducted was so helpful to the Merchandising, Marketing, Planning and Forecasting, as well as the Technical Design teams.

While we do not want her to leave us, we are super excited for her to walk the Baylor stage in December and await her return to visit us often, we hope.

I captured many moments of Kylee’s hard work and fun times this summer. Kylee’s sweet smile and gracious southern demeanor is simply infectious. She leaves us with a lighter, brighter outlook on the world of fashion and design. I am confident we all have the sweetest of memories as we wish Kylee all the best as she begins her new career! Baylor University should be most proud.
