Officially, fall begins with with the fall equinox. According to the people who decorate the stores, the seasons of changing leaves begins September first, even if no one tells mother nature. As a Southern California native, I’m used to the possibility of summer weather through October. Here in Seattle, however, the fall feeling is (intermittently) in the air, and I’m already pulling out my (limited selection of) fall pieces. As a result, I wanted to quickly share this outfit with you. Here’s an easy idea for to embracing fall pieces without overheating.
Here’s the easy trick to dressing like it’s fall when the weather doesn’t quite agree: bring in the colors and textures of the new season without the warmth or layers.
To get in the spirit of autumn without melting, I opted to pair this Banana Republic skirt (a favorite from fall 2015) with my black Madewell radio tee. I added my INC International Concepts black booties, whose gold heels coordinate well with the gold zip on the skirt. I finished things off with my Fitbit Charge HR (of course), gold studs, and this gold and green pendant necklace from my great grandmother. You could throw a cropped jacked on top if the temperatures did dip after all. For sunny days, ice tea is the only thing missing from this outfit!
You’ve seen this tee before, paired with jeans. Similarly, these black leather boots are a staple in my closet that I’ve also paired with cuffed jeans and with tights. With its high quality construction, this Banana Republic skirt is a wardrobe staple. The fabric is a beautiful weight, with a full lining. Best of all, this skirt has pockets!
