Well guys, I just couldn’t resist any longer. The scarf, boots and jacket came out this past weekend for a little outing! I had been checking the weather daily to see if it might be a LITTLE cooler in LA, but nope, 80s across the board. Therefore, I did what any normal insistent fashion lover would do – I sucked it up and wore my outfit anyway.
When my hubby took a look at me, the first thing he said was “You’re dressed for the wrong season”. Pshhh. Well tooo bad buddy, it’s happening. I do confess I was a little apprehensive that regret would set in once I walked out the door (shhh, don’t tell the hubby), but the weather gods were on my side that day as it got quite breezy early on in the evening. Naturally, I thought I was pretty clever in that moment and even got a little high five from my husband. (Thank you weather gods!) :)
Anyway, I can’t even begin to describe how much I love the colors that are commonly associated with Fall/Winter months and most importantly, the holidays that occur during this season. The holidays make me so feel so warm and fuzzy inside. I seriously get so excited just thinking about them! In terms of my wardrobe, as soon as September rolls around, I just have an itch to stock up on pieces in my personal favorite Fall color: tan. I’ve already bookmarked/collaged more than a few pages worth of outfit inspirations revolved around this color and all the shades in between, hah! Camel, brown, nude, beige, cream…you name it. I’ll try to share some of my collages with you guys soon!
While trying to find something to pair with my tan leather jacket this past weekend (because there was no doubt I was bringing the jacket out), I happened to skim past this blue dress in my closet. I purchased this sweet bow dress last season and actually envisioned myself wearing it in a more formal setting. I hadn’t really thought of it as an option for an easy breezy Sunday running errands, but I was glad that I reached for it. (On a side note - through blogging, I’ve realized my slight obsession for bows as evidenced here, here, and here. Can’t seem to get away from those suckers!)
I almost forgot how well tan and navy go together, like two peas in a pod. I couldn’t wait to pair it with my leopard and navy scarf, which all came together to create a favorite duo-chromatic color scheme. Instead of opting for heels since I was going for a more casual look, I slipped on these perfect-for-Fall boots to complete the outfit and was on my way.
I already know I’ll be wearing this outfit again when the weather cools down even more, except this time with my fleece lined tights (best invention ever) and an oversized coat (in tan, of course!).
