Plaid You’re Here🍁🍂

Getting my fall look in check(s) in this pair of plaid trousers. It is the most accessible way to tap into the plaid trend and get it right. Straight legs are great with a pair of ankle boot or try wide-leg pants with all-white sneakers for a super cool look. Pair with a cozy turtle neck sweater and you are good to go.

3 Styling Tricks For Fall!

Not everyone can go and purchase a completely new wardrobe every time the seasons change, but there are ways to get out of a style slump without spending your entire paycheck on new clothes. Here are 3 ways you can revamp old pieces with new shoes and accessories. 

  1. Plaid You’re Here! Not sure how to coordinate your plaid with other pieces in your wardrobe? Start with a piece in black and white and add a pop of fall color. Mix and Match your plaid pieces, add a bit of glam with jewelry, bold lips, and a bit of effortlessness with natural looking hair.

2. Floral Print Pick a floral print that is darker and moodier than the ones you’ve been wearing in the spring and summer. And it’s not just limited to dresses, but there are also tons of shirts, pants, skirts, accessories, and shoes all bringing in the floral print in different ways to the season.

3. Add a pop of color! A pop of color is just fun. I just love how red adds just the right amount of razzmatazz to all of these looks.  

Over time, having a few go-tos in your mind can turn into rotating outfits that re-define your entire style. What are your tips and trick to rework your fall closet?

Fall Overalls

Happy first day of Autumn / Fall Lovelies🍁🍂 Although it does not feel like it in Boston today with temps in the eighties☀️

A few weeks ago I did a post on styling a slip dress that could easily transition from Summer to Fall with minimal effort. I found another laid-back denim Summer time favorite in my closet that can work in the Fall as well ~ Overalls. Yes, overalls can be an easy, go-to outfit that is paired with a simple tee and sandals. However, with the right layering overalls can just as easily be transitioned into the cool-weather season.

  • Striped Tee and Booties

It’s super easy to put together, and I always loves how stripes add a little bit of Parisian flare to any outfit.

  • With a plaid shirt and a Wide-Brim Hat

For the ultimate Fall look —overalls, a loose-fitting plaid shirt, and a wide-brim hat. Depends on the temps, overalls are perfect for layering. I started off wearing my plaid shirt in the morning, but as the got warmer I just tied the shirt around my waist. 

  • Under a Cardigan

For a dressy, yet casual look, overalls can be paired with a classic form fitting black top, cardigan and booties.

Finish off any of these overall ensembles with some stylish accessories (shoes, purse, jewelry) and you have yourself a look that’s effortless and fashionable.
