Sun Drenched in Stripes

This outfit (or some sort of similar variation) is on serious repeat in my daily wardrobe: stripes, a surplus vest, my favorite skinnies, and leopard pumps.  Fall uniform perfection, if you ask me.  So if you are looking for an easy Fall look to live in or recreate, then I’d highly recommend this one!

Jumper

I LOVE a good romper, but it took me a little longer to get hop on the jumpsuit bandwagon.  But when I found this great navy version recently, I was sold!  So while jumpsuits might seem a little intimidating at first, I definitely recommend at least trying one on. Not only are they chic, but they are amazingly comfy and easy to wear and style.  In fact, I can’t wait to wear this one with a leather jacket and pumps when the temps cool down a bit.

Strappy

Do you guys watch Project Runway?  It is one of my FAVORITE shows.  And in this past episode, Edmond (one of my faves!) made a gorgeous pant suit complete with a cloud inspired vest.  It was one of my favorite looks of the week.  And the gorgeous, strappy top that he made, reminded me of one I have in my closet that I’ve never posted to the blog.  And so today, I thought it would be fitting to share a classic black and white look complete with a bright a lip.  A perfect Fall date night look inspired by one of my favorite shows!

Gingham

This gingham romper was one of my very favorite purchases of the summer.  And because I’m not ready to put it away quite yet, I decided to change it up a bit and style it with a utility vest and booties to make it more appropriate for the Fall season.  And you know what?  It totally works and I am really loving the look.  What are some creative ways you guys transition your favorite summer pieces into cooler months?  I’d love to hear!

Downtown

I am all about army green surplus jackets and they always seem to reign supreme in my closet this time of year. But truth be told, this camel color jacket has been my absolute favorite this season! It’s such a refreshing alternative to the ever popular olive-green jacket, and the gold hardware makes it feel extra special.  It really is the perfect piece to throw on with jeans for all of those weekend errands and last-minute Christmas shopping!!

Layers

We have had such a mild fall here in the SLC, that I almost forgot how brutal it can be to have to take blog photos during the winter months.  But boy, was I sure reminded in a hurry when we shot these photos on Saturday.  I guess it’s time to break out the winter coats, and pile on the layers.  And speaking of layers?  Surplus vests over plaid and flannels is still a combo at the top of my list this season…

Girl About Town

My hubby races bikes every Saturday in the Fall.  And after his race, we usually like to find a new place somewhere in the city to either grab a beer or a coffee and a treat to celebrate.  It’s nothing too big or significant, but one of my favorite weekend traditions none-the-less.  And because our Saturday’s are so laid back, my outfits tend follow suit and are generally some variation of the below.  Jeans, puffy vest, booties, repeat…

In-Vested

I.  Can’t.  Stop.  Wearing.  Vests.  And I sure hope you don’t mind!  Because if I’m not careful, between vests and plaid, I just might become some sort of broken record of a fashion blogger this season!  And while I am pretty much loving any vest that comes my way,  I want to know, what are you guys drawn to this season, solids or prints?

Think Pink

I love that pretty much anything goes this Fall season.  And when I say anything, I mean hot pink and florals aren’t just for the spring and summer months anymore.  And while l love my neutrals this time of year, I am finding a pop of color to be a welcome addition to my Fall wardrobe.  But I want to know, what do you all think of wearing bright colors and pastels during the cooler months?

Booties

Today, I want to talk about booties.  They are everywhere this season and I am absolutely in love with the trend.  BUT I’ll be honest, I find booties very difficult to wear.  I workout and bike and ski a lot, so I don’t have super skinny legs.  I’m also short (not quite 5’4″), so I find that most booties can tend to make me look thick in the legs and even shorter than I already am!  And that is definitely not look I’m going for!  Ha! I’ve tried on countless pairs and always love them on the rack and on other people, but seldom like them on myself.  However, I have finally found the trick to the perfect bootie for all you gals out there who are struggling with this trend like me.  And the secret, my friends? Booties that dip down in the front, or that are a little closer to a pump than a bootie (like the pair in today’s post-a shootie, if you will).  Seriously, I can’t tell you what a difference a little dip in the front will make for you and the length it will give you back in your legs.  So if you have been feeling anything like me when it comes to booties-don’t give up!  I’ve linked up some of my favorite, and (more importantly) flattering booties below!
