Flatlay: Buffalo Plaid + #ootd

It wouldn’t be fall without your traditional buffalo plaid button down, right?! Dress it up, dress it down, but it’s always a fall staple. My favorite ways to style this plaid are either dressed up and tucked into a skirt for work with a nice necklace/earrings or dressed down and styled like a cardigan over a fun graphic tee (like below). And it wouldn’t be right without a leopard clutch or bag thrown in the mix, right?! 😆

My exact graphic tee is old (it’s the “kiss” tee from J.Crew Factory last year), but there are so many similars available right now, you can’t go wrong styling a similar one! See below for more options.

My #ootd is also below – another ‘Florida vacation’ outfit idea aka it’s still hot as hell outside and I don’t know what to wear anymore ha – but my top is still available in 5 print options for less than $20 after using code “YAYMORE.” My shorts are also on clearance (use same code), but with very limited sizing. The best chino shorts available right now in white are here (over 200 almost 5 star reviews!). My sandals are over 50% off!

Flatlay: Rich Fall Hues

So many things I love about this outfit. First and foremost, I love love the rich golden hue of this sweater. It pairs beautifully with dark denim and brown colored booties. I added the vest for an extra touch, but will likely wear it by itself this winter unless we have an extra cold day. The rich tones in this outfit definitely give me all the fall feels! 😍 (and no joke – I think our ‘feels like’ temperature was 102 degrees again today! #thanksNestor). My sweater comes in a variety of other color options as well.

I also wanted to share my #ootd for my Floridian friends (and those that vacation down here in the winter!) ~ my shorts and top are on an incredible sale! Both less than $10 – and honestly closer to $5 after whatever random promo is offered! I went down one size in the shorts, and they did not shrink after washing (some reviews indicated they do). I wash and air dry almost all of my clothes, and then use the magic of this hand steamer to refresh everything ~ it’s a life saver!

*UPDATE: I found my booties in stock and for up to 40% off! (buy 1, 30% off… buy 2, 40% off!) These are from Macy’s – I forgot they still have their “Great Shoe Sale” going on! I also just purchased these, which might be my favorite bootie yet!

I’m so happy color blocking and big stripes are back this winter! My exact colored sweater is old from last year (newest colors here), but so many great options are available! I actually found a near identical sweater to mine at Nordstrom. It’s almost sold out, but keep checking back – sizes will pop in and out as they re-stock. I rounded up my favorite color block sweaters available below! The LOFT sweater has been really popular on other blogger’s pages, and the Old Navy sweater comes in other prints and color options!

OTHER COLOR-BLOCK SWEATER OPTIONS:

Flatlay: Yellow Skirt

When our weather has only cooled down a *smidge* (at night lol), I’m sometimes feeling summer….and sometimes feeling fall. The struggle is real. 😆

 I decided to pair some darker colors and fall prints with this pretty citron yellow skirt. I feel like leopard flats or pumps would work also. My skirt is actually on clearance and a great buy! I was happy to add it to my closet as I feel like it’s a color that can be worn most of the year.

Flatlay: Leopard Sneakers

One of my favorite fall trends this season are leopard sneakers! I mean, you know I love all things leopard, but the accessories really make up an outfit. There are so many options available right now, from a fancier Kate Spade version (here), dependable Steve Madden (here), or an affordable version like mine from Target!

Flatlay: The New Leopard

This year’s most popular leopard print has a darker cognac hue mixed in with a larger spotted pattern. I love all leopard equally, so I’m welcoming this with open arms! 😄 I found an affordable version at Target below (ok, let’s be real… I buy their leopard sweater every season whether or not it’s changed from the previous year, ha!) and it fits in with the new trend perfectly! I pulled out my rust mules from last year for the fall season, but cognac booties would pair even better.

Flatlay: Burgundy Booties

I just received these booties in the mail the other day, and couldn’t wait to share! I’ve wanted a pair of burgundy booties for awhile, and passed them up last fall. This year I wasn’t going to let them pass me by! These same booties actually come in 9 color options total, and the style itself is pretty awesome – I love how unique they are! I do recommend going down 1/2 size. I ordered my regular size, and although they do fit, I feel like they are a tad loose in the heel. I added an insert to the bottom which did fix the issue, but who wants to do that if you don’t have to, right?

Flatlay: 50 Shades

Ha – ok, not really 50 shades, but for such a neutral outfit I did pick quite a few shades of gray/white/off-white! Every year I invest in at least 2-3 new flannel shirts. It’s definitely my favorite type of shirt to wear down south, especially since it’s so easy to dress up under a skirt for work (for a preppy, more casual but still put-together look), and can also throw it on with jeans (or shorts ha!) for weekend style. My favorite options are from Old Navy (here) and J.Crew Factory (here). And if I still lived  up north, you know that bad boy would be layered under a comfy sweater and vest! 😁

Also- I’ve seen the conversation brought up recently about “white jeans after Labor Day?”… YES! always yes! That is an outdated, circa 1965 rule that you can throw out that door! And stomp on it and bring out your favorite white denim. Just instead of pairing with a linen top and sandals, go for an open toed bootie and lightweight sweater.

Flatlay: Kelly Green in Fall

Fell in love with this kelly green sweater the second it hit stores! It comes in several other (neutral) color options, but the green struck me as different for this time of year – and I love it! The button neck can be left up to keep warm, but also folds down for a trendy look. The inside is fleece lined and very soft. While us Florida kids won’t be wearing this for a couple months, it’s another ideal buy for our winters ~ throw on over a tee during the mornings and evenings, and un-layer in the afternoons. Currently 40% off!

Flatlay: Fall Basics

If I had to pick an outfit that represented the perfect fall basics, this would be it. Distressed skinny jeans, comfy tunic-like sweater, cognac booties, fun earrings, and a pop of something (leopard clutch in this case). Not to mention the perfect blend of neutrals. I found this sweater in store this past week on a whim and couldn’t resist – the ‘oatmeal’ speckled blend is a perfect mix of browns, grey, and a hint of black. It’s a lightweight material also, so easily layered over a long sleeve striped tee or throw a vest over top. The mock neck also adds an extra touch. If black jeans aren’t your jam, switch them out for dark grey, burgundy, or a dark wash blue denim – all work well! Heck throw on grey or black booties also – they all work because this sweater is awesome like that. 😁

**On a side note – did you guys know Old Navy is separating from the GAP and Banana Republic (and other brands owned by GAP)? This was mentioned to me by the sales associate at Old Navy last week. I knew GAP had been failing for quite awhile (honestly.. they just need someone to step up their design studio like Old Navy has), but I was shocked to hear they aren’t just closing the company altogether. Instead, since Old Navy has been so successful, they are separating them out completely from the other brands as their own company…. to allow them to “thrive separately.” I’m not incredibly business savvy, so I’m sure there is a good reason (perhaps for stock purposes), but I’m still a little confused by the venture. Banana and GAP will then be represented by their own new line. I guess I’m a little frustrated as a customer because all I was hearing from the sales associate was “you may have to apply for a new credit card” (I have a Banana card only), similarly to when The Limited sold out. I like that my rewards and payments are all kept together. So we will see. As a customer, I hope they keep it as seamless as possible, especially if it’s the best venture for all brands.
