We are already at week 3 of the Fall Style Challenge! This week was a little crazy (what week isn’t crazy, though??) but I only missed getting a picture of one outfit when I was busy pumpkin-patching with my kiddos (and sweating in my flannel shirt and jeans in 80 plus degree weather!).
Here’s what I put together this week:
I loved this pattern mixing day! I also loved my boots with this outfit. CUTE! My shirt is old, from LOFT Outlet, scarf is old and I don’t remember where it’s from exactly but it was a cheapy junior’s store. I don’t usually but clothes from those places, but I love their cheap accessories! My vest is Old Navy (color no longer available), pants are Maurice’s and boots are Naturalizers.
This is a very simple outfit, but I felt good in it all day. I’ve never been a big neutral person. I’m a big fan of color, but I think adding in some more neutrals has served me well and creates a nicer canvas for my more colorful pieces. This day I stuck with the neutrals, but I think it made my denim jacket look especially cute 🙂 Also, it’s hard to tell in the pictures, but I put a navy tank under the sweater and I liked mixing so many neutral in one outfit.
This sweater is Old Navy and it’s cute, soft and currently majorly on sale!
Not my most attractive picture, eh? However, the outfit is cute! Stripes, military jacket, skinny jeans, and leopard flats is such an easy, classic outfit for transitional weather months.
I pulled out this dressy sweatshirt that’s about 2 years old and I was glad that it’s still fashionable (and still fits!). It’s very comfy, but still dressy enough for the office. I added a little pop of pink with my tank and another pattern with my leopard flats.
Wearing my neutral sweater again and another striped shirt. If you hang out with Alison doing these challenges for a while, you will get quite the striped shirt collection (I have 6…I think)! 🙂 But, there’s a good reason! Stripes are such a classic pattern and mix really easily with other patterns. I’ve become a big fan! I pulled out an older striped scarf to add some color and I thought it made a big difference. I’m also wearing my leopard flats AGAIN (four outfits in a row- but actually five because guess what’s on my feet today)!
One thing I was not so sure about pre-challenge were boyfriend jeans. If fact, I had decided to say no to them and just wear skinnies instead. I didn’t think they would look great on a short girl with bigger legs and ankles. Well, after seeing LOTS of ladies in cute outfits with their boyfriend jeans, I decided I needed to try them after all. I went with GAP sexy boyfriend jeans and I am so happy with them! I had a coupon code from GAP and got a good deal. I also sized down so they wouldn’t be too slouchy.
That wraps up week 3! Just 4 outfits to go, but I’ll also add my missed outfits at the end.
