don’t you just love fall? the only downside is the days are shorter, and the mornings’ pitch black. but the leaves are turning brilliant shades of orange, yellow, and burgundy, and there are pumpkins everywhere, including my coffee. but the best part is college football is going strong. since i live in Georgia bulldog country, i pay attention to the SEC. it’s kinda like watching pro ball except for it’s better. the stakes are high, and the local fans love their teams. to make things more interesting, there are all sorts of rivalries that go back years and years. this week the tension is thick as Georgia squares off against longtime rival Alabama. and while some of us may be wearing black and red this Saturday to cheer our favorite team on, i just might be seen in check pants and burgundy sweater ‘cuz it’s so darn cute! in the end, all i can say is GO DAWGS!
so what’s your favorite part of fall? is it the cooler temperatures? apple crisp? or decorating for Halloween? i love all three, but i have to admit nothing compares to fall fashion. between sweater weather, adding a third layer to my outfit, or slipping into a comfy pair of loafers, there are so many ways to put together a casual yet chic ootd.
check pants and burgundy sweater
today’s ootd is pure fall. it starts with the rich color scheme found in the opens in a new windowcheck pants from opens in a new windowJ.Crew and opens in a new windowburgundy sweater that i scored this year at the opens in a new windowNordstrom Anniversary sale. add a pair of loafers (old opens in a new windowsimilar here) for old school charm and comfort, and i’m good to go lounging around the house, or if i’m headed out the door, i’ll grab my opens in a new windowCoach handbag that’s already sold out at opens in a new windowMacy’s. not to worry, it’s still available on the Coach website.
today, i’ll share a style secret about blazers. y’all know i love me a good blazer (yes, english teachers, this sentence is a colloquial expression not grammatically correct), and i add them to my outfits any chance i get. but a favorite style tip is to size up one size now and again. then the blazer turns into a coat that fits over any chunky sweater i throw its way. most of my blazers fit over silk or cotton blouses with ease and slim fit sweaters. but it’s next to impossible to incorporate blazers and cable knit sweaters or a long tunic sweater.
today, we’re sharing a mini-fashion flash from YouTube. it’s a sneak peek of outfits that will make a future appearance on the blog. happy Wednesday, ladies, time to put a smile on someone’s face, including yours.
