A rare post about fashion & clothing.

This is totally not like me to post on fashion, because well, I suck at it. I don't keep up with the latest trends, and I definitely have no idea what looks good together and what doesn't. And plus, I don't even bother getting out of my yoga pants 85% of the time. But I mean, with fall around the corner, I can't help but think a little bit about fuzzy sweaters and boots. Ya know?

I will just go ahead and throw it out there that most of the time, I don't even try to "match".  Actually, I kinda get the feeling lately that matching isn't a thing any more anyway. So maybe I'm in the clear as far as that's concerned. I just sorta choose things that are comfortable and go from there. I usually end up in a pair of skinny jeans or leggings, a loose shirt or sweater, warm cardigan and boots. Oh and stripes & the color grey will be seen on my wardrobe a LOT this fall.

I do have to give a shout out to Stitch Fix, though. Because they've actually inspired me to step outside my comfort zone a little as far as my wardrobe goes. But on most days, these are the kinds of things you'll see me wearing, that is, if I get dressed that day. ;-)

What kinds of things are your "staple" items for the Fall?

I love all of those outfits!! I have kinda forgotten about myself and just dress my girls as cute as can be. 4 kids are expensive. I always feel bad if I buy for myself.

Love the first outfit! Where is the striped shirt from?

Rachel said...

I pretty much wear boots whenever the weather is cold enough to, so I'm still getting as much use out of my more summery shoes as I still can! I've heard many good things about Stitchfix, but I think I enjoy doing my own shopping too much to ever want to give up the right to anyone else! :P

Very cute! I do love boots, but you'll probably still see me in my flip flops until snow hits the ground

Vicki said...

I want outfits 1, 2 and 4 :)

I am there with ya. I love reading style blogs, but when it comes to myself, I am a yoga-pant wearer all the way! I'm really excited for fall weather though because that means I get to break out the BOOTS!

Fall is one of my favorite seasons to dress for! My staples are scarves, moccasins, slouchy hats (which I also wore all last summer in Africa), worn in leather jackets, and Frye boots. I also can't resist a good flannel!

I love outfits 2 and 4 that you created! Especially the gray hats!

I love all of these outfits! My staple items definitely include my riding boots, scarves and cardigans - though I might not be seeing those as much now that I'm not in Seattle haha.

Love all of these! Longing for wall weather so I can waer my boots again...assuming they fit over my swollen preggo calves.

You have such a sense of style - all these "look" like you! Great outfits! :)

I'm particularly fond of the second look. Over the last few years, I've really fallen in love with blushes and greys.

And as much as I DON'T want the rain to return, I'm kind of excited for sweaters and boots.
