A Transitional Look for Fall

Welcome, fall and fall looks! We had some unusual rain last week and that combined with cooler California mornings had me in sweaters and fall things. 🍁My early fall wardrobe is a bit like my summer wardrobe (good denim and soft whites) but I love adding quintessential fall things like booties and the perfect wool hat!

These Sole Society Callan slingbacks are the perfect style for these in-between months when you’re craving fall but need to keep your feet (just a little bit) cool. I love how these instantly give the look and feel of fall but feel lighter on the foot. Sometimes it can be tricky to pair booties with jeans and these completely take the guesswork away. They look amazing with any length or style but I really love them with a straight leg silhouette like these Levi’s wedgie jeans. The taupe tone is a wardrobe must (it goes with everything!) but they do also come in black. I can see these being a great option for a fall night out, i.e., when you need something in-between dressy and casual and, of course, comfortable! These are basically a cross between a bootie, a mule and a pump and they’re perfect. The pointed toe also helps add length! For sizing: I’m in between sizes and did size UP in this pair.

I’ve been adding fall hats to my collection over the past couple seasons and currently have a couple of colors like tan and dark brown but the perfect taupe tone was missing—until now. This one from Sole Society might be a new favorite because it’s structured. The brim is completely solid—NO flopping at all! Which I love. Don’t get me wrong—there’s nothing wrong with a floppy hat but sometimes they just droop and I find they don’t look as chic. This one is stiff in a good way!

The hat paired perfectly with this fluffy white sweater (SO soft and also available in crewneck here!) to add a little cozy to this casual look but it would look just as cute with fall dresses or an edgy outfit like all-black. I tossed on this Sole Society black suede backpack I think might just become my work bag because I love having something I can completely zip up to keep all my work items (and computer) clean and dry into the rainy season.

This is definitely one of my go-to outfit combinations for the season—switch up the sweater with other neutrals or even pops of fall color, try black denim—the options are endless! Did I mention everything (minus the sunglasses) is under $100? 🙌🏼

As always, thank you so much for reading and happy fall!

If you follow me on Instagram (or read my blog), it’s definitely no secret that my go-to outfit formula is blue jeans + white top + XYZ shoe and done. ✔️And as we head into fall, I tend to keep this formula but with one minor twist added into the outfit rotation. I’ll sometimes swap the blue jeans for white or black denim to make layering with a denim jacket a breeze. 😎Is this a mind blowing outfit? No. Does it make you look and feel chic as hell? Definitely.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a good Canadian Tuxedo (i.e. denim on denim look) but there’s something so chic about a denim jacket paired with white pants and something innately “cool” about a denim jacket worn with black jeans. Visual in this post! It’s truly one of those “I have nothing to wear” formulas that works…and if it ain’t broke…

For this summer-to-fall look, I chose white pants, pairing my favorite Everlane straight leg pants with this And Other Stories nude cami and then threw a denim jacket into the mix as an easy layer. I love how the pants and pointed toe Cole Haan flats elevate the outfit just slightly but you could just as easily try skinny jeans and white sneakers for something ultra-casual. Coming from someone who’s typically a ‘skinny jeans only’ type of person, these pants have become my absolute favorite flattering straight leg style. They still have plenty of structure and I love the ultra-high rise and subtle flare. I found these run a little big. I’m normally a size 25 or 0 in denim and had to go with the 00 in these.

And a tiny tip for making any out feel more chic than casual on the casual-chic spectrum—or even from heading into sloppy territory? Your neckline! It would be so easy to reach for your favorite relaxed tee here but…! Instead of the lived-in, v-neck style you always reach for, try one with a crewneck or square neck. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good relaxed, comfy tee but anything that droops or gapes or just hangs there can so easily read as sloppy. If you opt for styles with a bit more shape (whether it’s in fabric or neck line or both) there’s an added element of structure that I promise will make you feel just as comfortable—and ten times chicer. 👏🏼

For reference, I’m wearing a US 2 in this nude camisole and it runs true to size.

What’s your go-to outfit formula as we head into fall? Do you have one?

As always, thank you so much for reading!
