My Perfect Fall Outfit

The countdown to fall has begun!! Start getting out your finest autumn clothing. Those sweaters. Those leggings. Those scarves. Those boots. Bust them out because fall is coming starting September 23. California doesn't get very cold, but when you're a Californian everything under 60°F is considered frigid. After 60 we start to grow icicles & can no longer function without several layers. Okay, I slightly exaggerate. 

My perfect fall outfit is a mix of the basic autumn essentials. My boyfriend said this looks like something Clair Huxtable from "The Cosby Show" would wear. Mind you, he said this when I had only the basics -- the striped sweater, draped beige pant, & olive green military inspired jacket. I'll take it as a compliment. I love that show!


Black & white stripes have never gone out of style. If you think they did you're a fool. I started out with the neutral basics & went from there. But me being me, I needed some sort of color added to the mix. It wouldn't be my stylo without a pop of brightness. Blue & yellow are primary colors, so you'll often see them paired collectively simply because they go well together. I added some radical geometric jewelry to tie it all in. I like the redundancy of the triangles in both the layered necklace as well as the earrings.

What are your fall essentials? Did you ever watch "The Cosby Show?" :]

  7. I love this inspiration board! The bright pops of color are so much fun for autumn. I usually gravitate towards exclusively grey, black, and navy as soon as the season starts to change, but you've incorporated color here in the perfect way. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog to have a read! It made my day :) and I adore your blog!!
