After a rainy weekend, it’s starting to feel a little more like fall around these parts! By that, I mean I don’t totally die of heatstroke if I wear a sweater, but it’s still smart to keep some skin showing so I’m not sweating through the day. Solution? Cozy sweaters and flippy skirts. (See last year’s edition here!)
I’m so glad I picked up this printed skirt from Old Navy over the summer because it’s truly season-transcendent. You saw how I wore it for summer here, and now for fall I’m wearing it with a sweater, and in a few months I plan to wear it with tights.
I don’t usually wear outfits as muted as this, but I’m actually digging the de-saturated look. This oatmeal sweater is a more pale shade than I typically gravitate towards because it’s so close to my skin tone, but with the right accessories (and a darker lip!) I think it’s rather pretty. I anticipate wearing this sweater half-tucked into high-waisted black jeans or even layered under a long cardigan with leggings on the weekend.
Have you broken out any sweaters yet?
