Fall is one of my favorite seasons and dressing for this fleeting in-between season can be tricky but also fun. The mornings are cold, mid day can be warm, while the evenings are cool. So when dressing for fall weather it is all about layering. With this look I could have easily thrown on a long mid-weight relax fit coat. On this particular day it was warm enough to go out sans coat, but a cute tweed blazer kept me comfortable when the wind picked up.
I bought this blazer up at H&M a few years ago and I love it’s versatility and it’s classic cut. On this day I paired it with this long, navy, button down ruffle blouse from J Crew. Isn’t this a great color? And I love the alternative to black. The jeans are from Gap and are my first pair of jeans with a distressed edge. But not my last.
Yes it was a bit of an indulgence but look at it!
I decided to wear them with these mid calf boots from Brusque. I didn’t want to wear high boots as I still wanted to see the distressed edge and it was a bit cool for ankle boots. And I finally got a cross body bag! I love this bag from Michael Kors. I almost bought another bag, it was small and lacked the details this bag has, but it Michael Kors week at Macy’s and all Michael Kor bags were %30 off so I splurged and bought the more expensive bag. Yes it was a bit of an indulgence but look at it!
And then to keep the look from being too dark I added this statement necklace from Loren Hope. The pop of orange and the teardrop details are the perfect compliment to this more sporty look. And the ring from Gorjana is a lovely way to pick up the gold details in the bag. Right? Both of these items were in my latest Rocks Box set and I liked the ring so much I ended up purchasing it. The mirrored sunnies are from Aldo and I bought them in Paris after I lost my second pair of sun glasses with in a month of each other. Oh boy lets see how long I can hold on to these. Wish me luck.
