This time of year is so much fun for getting creative with outfits. The mild temperatures lend itself to a freedom of putting different seasonal pieces together. From styling warm-weather pieces like a sleek cami with jeans and a long overcoat, to wearing cold-weather pieces like this chunky sweater in a way that says winter’s not quite here — it’s an open landscape of fashion possibilities!
I bought this chunky sweater right before we went to San Francisco and last wore it with a pair of skinny jeans and flats. On a warm autumn day in Texas, I dressed it up with a pleated mini skirt and boots. Each season tends to be anchored by staples I style over and over. For fall, these black boots are one of those staples. Made of leather and suede with a block heel that elongates the legs, they look great with a skirt, a dress, or jeans. My favorite thing about them is that I can still wear heels while keeping my toes toasty when the weather cools!
Speaking of staples, this purple chunky sweater is so versatile and lovely! When worn with black in the midst of the oranges and reds of fall, it fits right in to the burnished shades of the season. But it could also be worn in early springtime with a pair of light denim shorts (like these) and sneakers (like my Keds). Styled in that way, it would be just as appropriate for the cool breezes and pastel blooms of spring. Color aside, the fit of this sweater is incredible! The cropped length hits at the skinniest part of the waist, and the vertical pattern of the knit and slight mockneck collar are all subtle details that make a very flattering fit. In short, you need this sweater! It’s on sale at this retailer for $47 (only size large left), or find more sizes here for $59.
We spontaneously visited the pumpkin patch at Tarrytown United Methodist Church in Austin one Sunday and got these fun pictures with Merritt. She was super interested in the tiny pumpkins that were buried in the grass and had such a fun time running around the lawn picking them up. Afterwards, because we were only a few minutes down the road, we drove by our wedding spot at the Laguna Gloria Art Museum to see the current art exhibits displayed. We though the larger-than-life tinfoil man on the front lawn was so much fun!
Now that Thanksgiving has passed, it’s time to start thinking of winter outfits and how to style things for cold weather. Adding tights, a long coat, and a scarf to this outfit would take this sweater-and-skirt combo right into winter!
