This past weekend I spent a rainy morning raiding my closet and getting excited about fall... I played "dress up" big time to get a feel for what I already had in my closet for fall before I got TOO excited about buying more for fall. I think the 30/30 Challenge has made me more disciplined (success!). My fall shopping list seems about a mile long... not good. I wanted to dig into what I had first to make sure it didn't get shoved to the back of the closet with the new. This week I'll show you all my fun "existing" fall looks - then hopefully in the coming weeks I'll mix in some new as well!
It's the last of the fall "looks"... but actually more like the beginning in general. We have a few 85 + days left in the weather report, but I have a feeling after that it will be over except for maybe the hope of an Indian Summer in September or October. But I am SO ready... waking up to a chill in the air is by far the best feeling after a long, hot summer.
First things first... NEW SHOES! I am in love with these and always looking for a way to slip them on (even around the house!)... I can't believe this is their first cameo on the blog! Give them a warm welcome!
Does this outfit look professor-ish? It kind of felt that way, but I still really liked it. I would have loved to add a really bold chunky necklace, but couldn't find one that I loved (need to fall shop!). Something silvery or metallics. This is one of my faults, I can put an outfit on and then continue to critique and style it. Probably to death. Truth is, this outfit is perfect as is. My head plays games with me.
These jeans are less black and more dark grey... you can see best in the picture below. They are Matchstick by JCrew... I loved them when I bought them, then didn't so much and now I can't get enough of them. They are number one I want to reach for - I love my jeans like my kids... all in their own special ways. But I try not to play favorites!
Have you done your fall shopping yet?
