Well, it’s here! It’s the first day of September, and 26 Days of Fall Fashion 2017 starts NOW! I’m kicking it off with this casual transition outfit featuring a lightweight fringe poncho from Lucky Brand.
I found this poncho at their outlet store, but it’s also online AND currently on sale for $39. It’s a lightweight, loose-weave knit, so it can be worn over a tank top as seen here for warmer fall days and then over a long-sleeve tee or turtleneck when it gets colder.
This necklace is also from the Lucky Brand store, but I found it at their mall store. Yes, I’m on a Lucky Brand kick recently! They have so many cute tops right now.
For size reference, this is the XS/S. I don’t like it when ponchos are too voluminous or too long, so this size works well for me.
Here’s a look at the back. It’s a little longer in the back than in the front. I like how the neckline is wide and shows some skin because it’s flattering and also keeps me from getting too hot on these warm fall days.
I debated styling this poncho with my burgundy or spruce green jeans, but this time I opted for blue jeans and taupe suede ankle boots, and I carried a moss green handbag. I love this combination of neutrals.
The jeans, booties, and bag were all Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases that have been restocked; so while they’re kind of spendy, I was able to purchase them all for about 40% off.
Actually, this bag JUST went on sale again AND it is 50% off! So it’s lower now than it was during the #NSale. That’s kind of annoying to those of us who purchased it then, but if you wanted it and didn’t take the leap, now’s your chance!
I wore a combination of metals in my accessories. The necklace has yellow gold, rose gold, and silver, and my watch is two-tone so both go with pretty much everything. I love the gold studded handle on this bag.
I didn’t realize these booties had been restocked until I went to write this post, and I’m super excited about that because I plan to wear them a lot this fall! They are sooo comfortable, I don’t even want to take them off when I get home. I learned last year that taupe ankle boots go with just about everything. I highly recommend having this color in your wardrobe.
Style Tip >> Since these booties have a low shaft, I can wear my ankle-length skinnies with them without having to roll or cuff the hem. I just let them fall where they may. Showing a little bit of ankle is fine; in fact, that’s supposed to be slimming since it’s the narrowest part of the leg.
I can’t wait to start wearing this outfit! It’s totally the sort of thing I’ll wear to meet a friend for coffee or volunteer at my daughter’s school. It’s casual and comfortable with just a little bit of sass.
Be sure to visit Cyndi and see the fall outfit she’s styling today!
Before you go, you may have noticed that I’m not the only one wearing new clothes today. The blog got a pretty major makeover yesterday, and I’m super excited about it. I want to give a shout-out to Lindsay at Purr Design for working her magic. As much as I loved my last logo, I was ready for something new and fresh, and I love what Lindsay came up with.
She also updated my site design to compliment the new look and cleaned up some stuff on the backend, which is nice. I think we’ve got all the kinks ironed out, but if you notice something that looks off, let me know. I hope you find it easy to navigate.
In addition to being the first day of September and our new style series, it’s also Friday so that means linkup day!! If you have a fashion blog, I’d love for you to join us. If you’re here for your weekly dose of style inspiration, you’ll find plenty of that here. Enjoy your long weekend!
