Hi friends! Well, I never intended to take this long to post back on the blog. I was really trying to keep it up with Instagram and keep the spaces somewhat separate, reserve true blog posts for this space only, but when it comes down to it, I’m pretty sure I could write about a good flatlay as much as I could a regular outfit! So, here we are. 🙂 If you’ve been following me for the past few years, you know I always try this or that with the blog and never quite know where the wind is going to blow from month to month – ha!
So today I wanted to share a few outfits I put together – some pieces are old, some are new – some you might recognize from last fall that I’ve held on to. All are relative to this year’s fall season. The top color/print trends I’ve noticed right now are 1) snakeskin 2) leopard 3) varying shades of rust/marigold – and the shades in between (almost kind of a burnt orange color). Leopard is always a tried and true fall print, however I really love that snakeskin is having a moment (in small doses anyway!). Plaid is always, always hot in the fall so expect to see some new prints and shades hit the blog soon!
A mock neck top is always a go-to for early fall. You can still pull it off in the warmer months with the AC blasting, or if your area cools down early then you are comfortable without feeling claustrophobic like with a turtleneck. My top below I picked up at H&M for only $13! It comes in 4 color options – check out the vibrant bright red color for more of a summer color – it tucks in perfectly to a work skirt like below. I paired it with a dark skirt and leopard pumps for a true fall look, but bring out the caramel, ivory, and black for even more fall looks!
I was so happy when I saw Old Navy brought back these plaid pants! I picked these up last fall and they were probably my most worn work pant in my closet. The coloring is hard to see, but it’s a blend of black, white, and a lavender/orchid color. It pairs well with almost anything to the point you would never really know the purple color is in the pattern. I paired them with a summer tee, to carry over the warm weather into fall.
You can’t have at least one fall outfit without a good camel colored sweater! I’ve had the sweater I’m wearing for years and years. It’s merino wool and works in every season. I paired it here with a mini corduroy skirt and pink flats for a little fall transition, but heck there are so many color options to be had! The best merino sweater I know of is the Tippi sweater from J.Crew. It always comes in a ton of color options, including at least one camel version!
And last, but not least lets go with the snakeskin accessory! So, as mentioned above – I can only handle the snakeskin in small or muted doses. I love the accessories – I have a new Target bag (here) that I’m carrying everywhere these days. On my wish list is a snakeskin belt (like this one). I paired my old snakeskin flats with olive and white to start out with, but I intend to keep playing with outfits! Check out the snakeskin flat option below – I own these same Express loafers in a camel color and I wore them to death last year! For the price, they are very good quality.
