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.ย ๐Ÿ˜†

ย 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! ๐Ÿ˜„ 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 ย up north, you know that bad boy would be layered under a comfy sweater and vest!ย ๐Ÿ˜

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.ย ๐Ÿ˜

**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.

Flatlay: Soft Stripes

This sweater is incredibly soft and comfortable! One of many new fall arrivals, and I’m trying to be choosy since I only get a month or two to wear all of my winter favorites down here!ย ๐Ÿ˜ I made the mistake of selling all of my winter wardrobe when we first moved down here to FL, and we had a relatively warm winter a couple year ago, and my oh my – I was regretting it last winter when it got colder! ย Jokes on me I’m sure, but I was wearing the same few warm pieces I owned over and over – this year I wanted to scoop up all the lightweight favorites since 100% acrylic and wool are too heavy (watch… it will be 90 degrees all winter lol). ย I love the colors in this sweater also – perfect match for cognac accessories! There is also a lilac striped option as well.

Flatlay: A Grand Mix

Sometimes, you just want to throw it all together and hope it works! Whatcha think? My leopard scarf might be a tad too light in color (its old) to bring out the taupe in the booties, but the idea was to throw a lot of gray print together and see how well it blended. Without the scarf, I love, love the gray leopard print matched with gray jeans, taupe booties, and a darker camo jacket! This will definitely be an #ootd for me later this year, I just need to find a new scarf.ย ๐Ÿ˜

Flatlay: Pumpkin Spice

Who’s had their first PSL of the season?! I know it’s not everyone’s favorite, but I do love it this time of year! I haven’t been able to enjoy my first one yet, but I usually try to grab one every couple of weeks while they are in season. That being said – my corduroy skirt is a long time favorite I bring out every fall season. It’s honestly a little tight on me these daysย ๐Ÿ™ˆ, and I’m looking for a replacement, so I’ll save you a mirror pic and reserve it for flatlays-only.๐Ÿ˜

Since corduroy is so popular right now, I couldn’t resist bringing it out already – even in August! There are several variations of corduroy skirts available right now. Both Old Navy and H&M have their own versions in various shades available, and I have my eye on the rust color from ON and the ivory from H&M. I’ll link below! Pants also!
