Transitioning from summer to fall is my favorite time of the year, since we slowly say goodbye to flowy shirts and boho vibes and start welcoming structured silhouettes and deep colors. And what better way do that than with suede and florals, right? You don’t have to have a huge wardrobe budget to put together a similar outfit, instead you just need a few key pieces in order to truly embrace this type of look. You probably have at least one of these items somewhere in your closet already. It may be a little scary to combine statement pieces at first, since the rule of thumb is to pick one eye catching item and work around it with basics. However, it’s great to embrace a variety of colors and endless combinations of patterns in order to jazz up your wardrobe a bit. Feeling brave to spice up your fall looks? Take a deep breath and let’s get into it!
I’m telling you its pretty easy to transition your leg-flaunting looks into cooler weather months, and you can always start off with a miniskirt, and even better if it comes in ultra soft suede and a subtle side slit like the one I’m wearing. The great thing about this mini is that it’s cleanly styled and very versatile. So it can be worn with a simple white T, long chunky cardigan and knee high boots for a clean look full of basics or you can style it like I did; with a vintage inspired floral print turtleneck with shirred details at the cuffs and neck. Comfort was on my mind when putting this look together since I knew I was going to be in and out of my car all day long running through the city, so I wore my square heeled booties that are perfect for busy days. To go really casual I opted for a backpack instead of a purse as well. It’s quite fun to carry my things in a backpack, it takes me back to my childhood, and embodies comfort at its best! 🙂
