If I could only dress for one season, I would always and forever choose fall. As much as I love the sun, what I love even more are jeans and layers and boots and sweaters.
I’m a work-from-home mom and dressing up isn’t always practical or necessary. My go-to outfits are always casual, comfortable and I try to keep things cute. I’m such a believer that dressing well makes a huge difference in how we feel about ourselves and truly impacts our day. I do my best to fill my closet with classic, basic pieces that are easy to wear and can be mixed and matched again and again.
It always feels so silly taking pictures of myself for these posts, but I do it for you. I know how helpful it is to see how others put outfits together – especially casual, everyday outfits. My hope is that you can use this as a great shopping list for basics and layering pieces, and maybe a few outfits will spark some ideas of how you can mix items you already have in your closet.
Let’s get started!
As you may know, I wear jeans pretty much every day. This year, I decided to go wild and switch things up with a pair of gray jeans. They work as a great basic, go with everything and this particular pair is as comfortable as they come. I like to pair skinny jeans with a longer/looser fitting sweater and booties for balance.
Because sometimes a cozy, casual outfit consisting of a sweatshirt, jeans and slippers is absolutely the right choice. What I love so much about this particular sweatshirt is that it is comfy and also cute. I now have a small collection of these double hooded sweatshirts and will say this this one is my favorite. They now have front pockets, thumb holes and are extra long. I order a size up since they run pretty trim and I like some room.
I have been wanting a classic cable knit turtleneck sweater for a long time. I grabbed this one on sale earlier this fall and have worn it approximately four thousand times. I’m a big fan of choosing classic pieces (even if they are a bit pricier than usual) that don’t go out of style. (P.S. the sweater is currently on sale!)
The sweater is paired with this easy skirt and my very broken-in boots.
I call this outfit “heading out to shepherd my llamas” because the poncho just has that look, and yet, I’m still a fan. I’m not sure if we are still doing denim on denim, but I still like it. The key (in my mind) is to make sure there is a difference in wash.
For all my friends who live in warmer climate places … you must get this shirt. It is light-weight, has a fantastic blousy sleeve, buttons down the back and the gingham is just so cute. This is such an easy outfit.
Leggings + tshirt + long cardigan + scarf is an outfit formula that hits all the marks: comfortable, casual, cute.
Every season, I think to myself that I want to wear dresses. Very rarely do I find one that feels everyday wearable. This sweatshirt dress, however, totally works. It is cut slim, is made of sweatshirt material and looks pretty cute with a puffy vest (like this one) over it.
I found this sweater this past weekend and couldn’t pass it up. Black and white striped sleeves?! So cute. I threw it on with old bootcut jeans and a cozy hat (which makes my head look even smaller than it is, but whatev).
One very simple way to dress up jeans and a white tshirt: add a scarf, belt and flats. I wear the leopard belt with everything and am still figuring out how to wear a blanket scarf :)
So there you go. Nine favorite outfits to wear this fall. I hope these outfits help inspire you to try new combinations of things you already own and maybe add in a few new pieces that you love!
