I have to say, I hate to see summer go, but I’m always looking forward to some fall fashion. It’s the best when it starts to cool off just a bit and you’re able to throw on some extra layers and wear long pants comfortably again. What I’ve learned over the years is that there are certain items in my closet that never go out of style. Having a wardrobe filled with timeless wardrobe staples can help you mix and match your outfits and save you money in the long run.
To me, nothing says fall like a little leopard in my outfit. I love adding a pop of leopard here and there. Lately, I’ve been moving beyond my leopard accessories and trying out more leopard clothing pieces. I recently got this leopard long sleeve crew neck t-shirt from Amazon. I always get worried about having too much leopard in my outfit, but I find this shirt to not be as overwhelming with the print as it seems. By adding in different layering pieces you can break down the print if it’s too much. I like that it’s not too heavy, so it’s great to wear in early fall, then as it gets colder it will be nice to layer under my cardigans.Read more
Even though we still have a few more weeks of summer weather ahead of us, I can’t help but start to get an itch for fall fashion. I love transitional fall outfits. My ideal weather for dressing is about 70 degrees. It’s the type of weather that you can still wear dresses and flats, but it’s nice to layer up with a cardigan. Read more
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve sat down and tried to write this blog post. I’ve been wanting to share this look for weeks, but every time I go to write, I realize that I have something else to do before I can start. That task usually leads to another and before I know it, I’m too tired to write. The last few weekends have been productive, but busy. My plan was to get a bunch of blog posts drafted and scheduled for the last couple weeks of October because I’m going to Michigan at the end of the week and I know I won’t have much time for blogging while I’m there. That didn’t happen though. There were just more important things to get done before our trip, plus this weekend Jack decided to boycott his naps, which is not a good thing for me. Naptime is blog time for me on the weekends. But finally, I have a minute. Due to not having a nap today, Jack passed out on the living room floor at 7:30, so bedtime was a breeze tonight. With the husband sleeping too, I can finally work on a few blog posts and plan out my life a little. Yay!
Anyway, today I want to share this super cute Amazon find. This black and white striped button-down tank top (Find it HERE) is the perfect tank for wearing under my cardigans this fall. This style of top is very in style right now with the buttons and the knot at the bottom. It was only $5 on Amazon, but I don’t have Prime, so I did have to pay for shipping. Sometimes I get nervous when ordering really cheap clothes online, but this one turned out to be a pretty good find. Minus the poorly sewed buttons, it’s a pretty decent top. I bought it in a small, but I do wish I would have sized up because I do like my tops a little baggier for styling.
I thought that this top went perfectly with my new duster cardigan (HERE) from Forever 21. I may have mentioned before that I hate going to the mall. It’s too time consuming and too overwhelming, that’s why I’m all about mall shopping online. I’ve been doing almost all my shopping online lately. So I was unsure about this cardigan at first. I wasn’t sure if I should size up or down, but I have to say that I really love it. It’s the perfect fit and It was under $13, which for a cardigan, I think that’s a great price. I accessorized my look with my favorite leopard clutch that everyone likes so much. I love to mix leopard and stripes. It’s one of my favorite combos for fall. I’m also always a fan of the peep-toed booties in the fall. These booties are the perfect color for me. You can scroll down to get all the details on this outfit!
