Matching separates were huge for spring and summer, but they are also working their way into fall collections as well. Take for instance this Lou and Grey matching top and skirt that are available on the Loft website. I've been a huge fan of this brand ever since they launched their first collection, and now, Lou and Grey has an extensive showing on - which btw has a huge sale going on. Right now, you can take an extra 50% off sale styles including this set in all three color options! Seriously contemplating getting it in a second color...

So why do I like Lou and Grey? Maybe because it's the graphic patterns, slouchy fabrics and all around comfortable clothing they make for everyday wear. I've been wearing this outfit an embarrassing amount lately. It's a quick choice for weekend errands and comfortable sneakers or I've even worn it to work with black booties. It's a no-brainer closet option! Not to mention, you can wear the separates... separately. Whatttt.

Are you getting tired of the Parker satchel and my animal print slip-ons yet? I hope not, because I'm living in them lately!

Knit and Flare

This post was originally supposed to go up yesterday afternoon... as you can see, it never got finished. I am rather struggling with balancing work, blogging and life right now, so apologies for the lateness!

I like to play with proportions when it comes to separates like pairing anything oversized with an interesting silhouette. Once again, I'm wearing this go-to cable knit sweater because it's super comfy and goes with everything - it even makes a summery skirt take a turn towards fall.

This scuba flare skirt was originally part of the late summer collection which means it's now on sale via the J.Crew website. They also recently brought out the same skirt in solid colors that are now also on sale, so if you love the look, now's the time to grab it. Last time I checked, the sizes were limited! Links to both skirts are above in the outfit details or below in the shop the post widget.

For me this look says that you don't have to be predictable with fall outfits. It's fun to try new proportions and patterns that you wouldn't normally wear together. And who knows, you might even discover a new style that works for your body type. I typically don't wear that many skirts that run tight across the front, but once I tried this one on, I found out that it will work on me despite my height (much like the flip skirt from Loft in Tuesday's post).

The Trench Vest


Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Today, I'm featuring two fall items that are sure to add personality to any wardrobe - 
the quilted flip skirt and the trench vest. Both seen here, I wanted a casual and comfortable way to wear these very versatile pieces. Over the next few weeks, I'll show many different ways to wear each one, so you can seamlessly integrate similar items into your own closet!

The color palette remains neutral while the slip-on sneakers create interest with an animal print pattern. (I'm sure by now you're seeing a few constants in my outfits - these Dr. Scholl's shoes and my Gigi New York Parker satchel.) I'm loving the crisp mix of white, gray, tan and black. Sometimes the best color combos turn out to be neutrals. Such a fresh outfit option for fall weekends out and about!

This quilted, gray skirt is a blogger favorite! Jenn and I just happened to both pick up this flippy skirt for fall proving that it will work on both short and tall body types. To see how she styled hers, visit Haute Off the Rack!
