White blouse + Chunky Necklace

For in between seasons, this outfit has it all. Long sleeves that can be rolled up and plenty of ventilation. The color scheme also has a hint of fall with the red skirt, but still calls on summer with this chunky gold and turquoise necklace. Although it’s a little glared out by the sun in these pictures, I love how this necklace spruces up a white button down shirt. I have meaning to make this pairing for a while.

Camel and red ambitions

I was trying to figure out what my big camel and red moment would be (because I have been taunted with hundreds of images of this beautiful combo, See example), when I remembered that I bought this camel poncho earlier this fall, and I have had this bold print skirt since my days as a sales associate at Loft. I am mad that I didn’t think of my particular creation sooner. I really like that the poncho itself is evocative of the old west and the bright print skirt is probably more appropriate for a garden tea party. Despite their contrasting purposes, I think they look oddly good together. And I think the wine colored boots, which can go with either piece separately, helped tie the look together.

Scholarly fashions

In the fall my outfits get very scholarly. That’s probably because for the majority of my life so far, fall meant going back to school. My uniform for high school was not attractive, I will admit that, but I always come back to that collegiate look for fall—school boy blazers, loafers, tights. We did have to wear tights in high school, which I didn’t mind. However, I don’t think my high school had fashion in mind when they enforced that rule.
