I am SOOOOOO happy to be back! I have loved learning all these cool tips and tricks from my guest posters but boy am I ready to be writing about fashion again!
I had a post already written about tips on cleaning out your closet as I just did some purging again, but then I saw this outfit, and fall is moving into Houston, so I had to post a steal this look instead (closet tips next week!).
Here’s my inspiration:
I love this outfit for October except I’d darken the jeans a bit, ditch the bracelets, and opt for a little funkier shoe. Here’s where you can land a few key pieces to pull together your own crimson and charcoal ensemble for fall.
For your accessories, this is a great all-purpose houndstooth scarf for $20 from KerriBren via Etsy.
The topper is key in my mind, and you can go lighter or darker on the gray (stay away from dove gray) and still hit a home run. If you live in a warmer climate and don’t have a chilly fall, you could pick up this lightweight draped cardigan from Macy’s which is on sale for around $50.
Or, for cooler climates, you can don this heavier, and pricier, luxurious drapy cardigan from Nordstrom’s by Vince (and there are several good sweater options by Vince if you want to browse):
As footwear, you can either go for the dark loafer or even an ankle bootie to modernize this ensemble more. This Nine West wedge bootie comes in an assortment of colors from DSW at $79 or add some additional texture in black with these loafers by Anne Klein also at DSW (if you like the exact shoe pictured above, its identical twin is by Adrienne Vittadini at DSW).
As for the other items, look for a straight leg solid dark rinse pair of blue jeans, and top it with a bright red long-sleeved crew shirt. (You can pick one up in a dozen different shades anywhere from Target to Land’s End.) Then add a simple black stud earring or small gold or silver hoops and waa-laa, you’re ready for the fall!
