I don’t think there is an outfit combo that is more on brand for me than a cozy sweater paired with a denim skirt and knee-high boots. This is the epitome of a fall outfit in my opinion. So, while we had a break in the cold-front we’ve been experiencing here in Baltimore you know I whipped this outfit right out!
I’ve been wanting to shoot this sweater for you guys because I’m absolutely in love with it (it’s actually been hanging in my room and I can’t tell you how many times my mom has looked at it and said she loved it). You know white is my go-to—whether that’s sweaters, tees, or blouses—but I love the fun addition of the color block sleeves! Paired with the balloon sleeve silhouette it’s a subtle statement and so, so chic.
Again, at this point you guys know my undying love of denim skirts (check out my fall staples post here), so I won’t go into detail. And of course, the outfit wouldn’t be complete without some form of boots. I wanted this outfit to look classic and slightly preppy—I’d say mission accomplished!
But now that we’ve got the outfit covered, here’s another reminder about the $1,000 Amazon gift card giveaway. Enter below!

Soooo a bit of a late post this week. I’ve been pretty MIA, but I wanted to share a short and sweet post with some items I’m loving for fall. As I’ve mentioned before, fall is my favorite season, especially when it comes to fashion. So, of course, I’ve been spending my time online shopping. Here are some items that I’m absolutely loving right now!
Clearly I’m loving grandma cardigans and sweaters and dark/neutral color palette. Which item will you add to your wishlist? Let me know in the comments!
Labor Day Weekend has come and passed, so now everyone and their mother is trying to pretend it’s fall—me included! Unfortunately, the weather doesn’t always agree. So, while we’re all craving to throw on our oversized sweaters and blanket scarves and sip on those pumpkin spice lattes, unless you want to sweat up a storm you’re going to have to slowly transition to fall. Luckily, I’m sharing three easy ways to transition your outfits. You’ll be looking autumnal without sacrificing comfort.
Play With Fabrics
My first tip is to start adding more fall/winter fabrics. Think leather, suede, corduroy, velvet, etc. But, make sure you do it in a way that won’t leave you dying from heat. An easy way to add in those fabrics is to pair shorts or a skirt (in my case a skort) in a heavier fabric with a lighter top. Try wearing a corduroy skirt with a light cami or a simple white tee with leather shorts. This is the perfect time to pull out those pieces that always look like they should be worn in fall, but by the time you actually get around to wearing them it’s way too cold.
Switch Out Summer Shoes
The easiest way to start dressing for fall is to swap your summer sandals for booties and cute flats. I would hold off on the over the knee boots a little longer, but throwing on a pair of booties will definitely tip the scales on your outfit towards fall instead of summer. Just by adding the white booties like I did in the photos above definitely changes the entire vibe of the outfit.
Incorporate Autumnal Colors
My last tip: start wearing fall colors. Bring out those darker neutrals and jewel tones, the burnt oranges and mustard yellows! While I actually stayed fairly bright with this outfit, one of my favorite color combinations for fall is black and brown. I think those colors look stunning together and definitely scream “autumn.” The best part is that you can still wear summery fabrics and styles and stay cool while looking like you need that aforementioned pumpkin spice latte in hand.
So there are my three tips for transitioning your outfits from summer to fall. How are you going to transition this season? Let me know in the comments!
OK — gimme all the skorts, please, especially if they’re plaid. How is this trend just now a thing? It’s just the right amount of nostalgia for my Catholic school days without looking childish and/or creepy (if you get my drift…).
I bought this plaid skort over the summer during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and have been patiently waiting to wear it ever since. Now that the weather finally feels like fall, I feel justified in pulling this piece out of my closet.
Because the weather wasn’t too chilly, I decided to pair the skort with an old bell sleeve top. (Oddly enough it’s the same brand as the skort). Adding to that my favorite boots of the season and you have a fool-proof fall outfit! I got so many compliments on this look and it’s really so simple.
But back to the plaid skort — like I said, I bought this over the summer, so there are only a few left. But good news is it’s on major sale in select sizes! So because of the limited quantity, I thought I’d share some other plaid skorts I’m loving this season. Happy shopping!
Hello and welcome back! I’d like to briefly apologize for my hiatus, but my laptop crashed last week and I was having other crises. But I’m back and can’t wait to share another fall fave of mine: colored corduroy! Corduroy has been coming around in the fall season for the past few years, but it’s never been this good!
What I’m loving about this skirt is the unexpected color; when I think fall colors, teal definitely doesn’t come to mind. Something about the teal mixed with the O-ring also gives me serious 70s vibes (another trend I’m loving).
I decided to pair this skirt with a simple long sleeve tee for a laidback look, so I could let the skirt and boots do all the talking! I’ve mentioned these boots on the blog before, but how cute do they look on?! I can’t wait to pair them with sweaters and jeans!
But back to colored corduroy. This trend is everywhere. From skirts like mine, to pants and jackets you can’t go wrong. I’m dying to get my hands on a pair of corduroy flares, preferably in navy blue! Shop below some of my favorite corduroy picks!
I feel like a broken record, but can it please be fall yet? Waiting (im)patiently… With that being said, my only option is to dress in fall-esque outfits. Basically, wearing cooler clothes that could also be worn mid fall. And to help you out, I came up with three different ways to get your faux-fall on!
1. MOTO JACKET + DENIM SKIRT + BOOTIES
One of the easiest faux-fall looks you can throw on is a moto jacket, denim skirt, and booties combo. It’s essentially my summer uniform, just with a jacket and swapping sandals for booties. You can keep it classic like I did with a black leather jacket and booties, or you can go all out. I’m a big fan of fun ankle boots (just saw these earlier tonight and I’m in LOVE)
2. TEE + STRAIGHT LEG JEANS + LEOPARD SLIDES
I recently saw a version of this outfit come across my insta feed and I can’t wait to recreate it for myself. I’m especially loving a band tee paired with the straight leg jeans and leopard slides. If you’re feeling fancy, you could even swap those slides for a pair of heels to wear this look straight to happy hour.
3. FLORAL MAXI DRESS + SANDALS
Dark florals have such a dreamy vibe this fall. From ruffled maxis, to long sleeved ones, it’s hard to go wrong. This look keeps you covered up, but still cool. Adding sandals keeps this look unrestricted.
What are you wearing while the temps are still high? Are you aiming for a faux-fall look, or are you sticking to your summer separates? Let me know in the comments below!
