The Monday after a long and rainy weekend is always the hardest to wake up for, am I right? After a crazy three days at Fun Fun Fun Fest getting muddy and dancing my butt off, I desperately need another weekend! Thankfully, I at least didn’t have to spend a lot of energy getting dressed today. I’ve worn this easy cool girl outfit a bunch since the temperatures started dropping in Austin, and it’s easily one of my favorites I’ve ever featured on the blog.
A good outfit doesn’t have to be Earth-shatteringly inventive. I feel super confident in this look and I’ve gotten compliments every time I’ve worn it. Essentially, this is just a striped tee and black jeans. It’s the add-ons that make it something special! My denim vest has been in constant rotation and it’s the fastest way for my to feel put together and a little edgy this season. My new Sam Edelman boots are so comfy and the pretty cognac shade just screams fall. Put a felt hat on my head, and I’m suddenly suddenly a girl wearing an outfit you can’t wait to recreate, instead of just one in a tee shirt and jeans.
It’s all about those fall staples! Having a few special or seasonal pieces you can add to a simple outfit elevates the look without sacrificing comfort. What fall staples have you picked up this season that take your outfits from basic to favorite?
