My Favorite Fall Outfit

My Favorite Fall Outfit

My Favorite Fall Outfit

Hello November! Halloween is always the switch here in Nor Cal. It’s now for sure fall. Seriously last week I was so hot I still had to pull my sleeveless tops out again. However, it did lead me to my favorite fall outfit. This combo from Banana Republic Factory:  Sweater dress + Felt Hat + Ruana + Mules

Banana Republic Factory Ribbed Midi Sweater Dress

This ribbed sleeveless midi dress is so easy to wear for fall.  It’s comfortable, flattering, the perfect weight and extremely versatile.  A few fall accessories and I have my perfect fall look.  I liked it so much that I got it in both black and tan!  Both are the perfect fall colors.  *sidenote I’m linking the petite but I’m wearing a regular.

What makes this look so fall friendly are the accessories.  The hat is from Amazon, which for the price, an excellent find and its adjustable to fit multiple head sizes.  The ruana, or poncho as they call it, is from Banana Republic Factory too.  It is the perfect combination of fall neutrals in a plaid which reverses to my favorite print, black and white houndstooth.  It’s also so soft and cozy so as weather transitions, or for cooler mornings, or cooler offices, this guy was my GO-TO in Sept and Oct.  I liked it so much I might of got a few for gifts. Actually, this ruana and felt hat combo would make and excellent pairing for a Christmas gift.  Especially for someone you really don’t know their size in clothes but you still want to get them something fashionable.

This has been my favorite fall outfit, not only this black version but also in the tan.  I wear the same accessories and just reverse the ruana for a completely new look!  You could definitely warm this up for cooler temps with a denim jacket, cozy cardigan sweater, or even a turtleneck underneath the dress.  The ruana/poncho is really warm too so if you belted it and treated it more like a cardigan sweater you’d be plenty warm.  Also, instead of mules switch into your favorite tall boots and done!  I’ll be wearing this all fall and winter I’m sure.

Wear and Share Wednesday:  A Touch of Fall

Wear and Share Wednesday: A Touch of Fall

Fact:  It’s still officially summer.  The first day of fall isn’t until Monday, and it’s still going to be 90 degrees this weekend so even if I want to embrace fall early, it’s really only a touch of fall.  I think I’m so tired of the same sundresses I’ve been wearing all summer so I’m ready for a wardrobe refresh, even if its just a touch.  I have done some great back to school shopping and picked up a bunch of fall 2019 trends, but I can’t quite wear them all yet, so I need to add in a touch of fall where I can.

A touch of fall with camel accessories!

I achieved a touch of fall with camel accessories!  This fall color is not only classic but neutral and really anchors my LWD.   I’ve known I wanted a camel tote as my fall bag since the spring but I haven’t been able to find one until last week!  I scored this clearance find at TJ Maxx and it was EXACTLY what I was looking for.

New fall bag of my dreams!

Lucky for me my camel and tortoise double ring belt from Express came in right at the same time and nothing is better than matching your belt to your bag.  This white dress is from my Express Style Trial box and belting it gave it just the touch of fall I was craving.  Plus this LWD is really well made, lined and the perfect quality for transitioning from summer to fall.

LWD gets the fall treatment!

You know what also arrived at the same time as my belt and new bag purchase… my Avon order!  Which included this beautiful camel faux leather strap watch and this leaf bracelet that look amazing stacked together.  I had this bag/watch combo going in my dreams since I saw this watch in person at our conference 6 weeks ago!  These two are launching soon but as a rep I get them a few weeks early.

Obsessories!

Obsessories!

I’ve been obsessed with these white slides from Shoedazzle.  They actually have a camel sole so they work perfectly for this late summer look.  As we head more into fall and it drops down to the 70s 😉 I can switch out these slides for these snakeskin booties and I have an even deeper fall look. You can already see how I’m working in these booties and that animal print trend for late summer in my last post (see here).

What To Wear: Thanksgiving Day

What To Wear:  Thanksgiving Day

What To Wear: Thanksgiving Day

Turkey for me.  Turkey for you.  I like to eat my turkey in a big brown shoe… or a chic Thanksgiving Day look.  We all know I’m a sucker for a holiday and a good holiday movie.  Did you notice in the movies, how everyone is always so sharply chic when they show up for family holiday dinners!?  And I always love their looks, so here’s my take on a chic Thanksgiving Day look, that’s still comfortable and fall friendly!

Chic Black and Fall Accessories

Chic Black and Fall Accessories

When in doubt, wear black.  Black always looks classy and chic.  Start with a basic fine gauge crew neck black sweater (Express).  I paired mine with a comfortable pencil skirt (Express), trick is to find one that’s not too tight or too high waisted.  I like pencil skirts because they’re slimming and you don’t have to fight with the hemline while sitting.  HOWEVER you could achieve the same look with black pants, skinnies, jeans or leggings.  The key is in the fall accessories.

Basic Fall Must Have:  Plaid Blanket Scarf

Basic Fall Must Have: Plaid Blanket Scarf

Adding this plaid blanket scarf (Target) over my all black look bumps up the fall factor.  Plus it’s extremely practical to ward of the cold and snuggle up.  I just draped mine over my shoulders for a chic shawl look and to showcase this stunning mark. Second Nature Necklace.  Every holiday look needs some major statement sparkle.  The branch like detail on this statement necklace is perfect for the fall holiday but will look just as stunning over my holiday red come christmas.  If you get one sparkle piece this holiday season for yourself let it be this one!

Fall Accessories To Up The Game

Rounding out the accessories are a skinny metallic belt, a really strong black pump (coming soon to my eBoutique taking pre-orders) and a lady like faux croc bag in fall friendly green. (mark. contact if interested).

Fall Friendly For Thanksgiving

I tend to lean a little more “dinner party” for Thanksgiving but if yours is more casual just switch out the skirt for some more casual bottoms.  A black pump looks good casual or dressed up and fall accessories up the game.  A little chic goes a long way!
