Happy Monday, friends! It is FINALLY starting to feel like fall in Philly, and I couldn’t be more excited about it.
I think of myself as a summer girl, but whenever fall rolls around, I realize that God knew what he was doing when he created seasons. They all have their enchanting qualities (except maybe spring — I’m still trying to like spring, ha!)
The colors in today’s outfit couldn’t be more appropriate for fall. This sweater is like being wrapped up in a pumpkin spice latte! It also comes in ivory and a really pretty “hthr latte” that I almost chose because it’s more in my typical color palette, but I like this for fall. It runs true to size for J.Crew. I’m wearing a small, for reference. If in doubt, size down.
This sweater has a loose oversized fit without being too voluminous, and I just love the color for fall. I wore it with my favorite blue jeans, cognac ankle boots, and a plaid scarf in an array of gorgeous fall hues.
I thought these cognac booties were a great color with this scarf and sweater combo. Ecco Shoes sent them to me to test out.
I often get requests for ankle boots with a lower heel, and these are amazingly comfortable. They even have arch support. Plus the leather is gorgeous. For this brand and their quality and timeless style, that’s an amazing price. They’re true to size.
I usually go for jewel tones over earth tones, so I really like how this scarf combines both. It’s a great way to wear fall colors when you have a cool skintone, and I also like how it repeats the blue from the jeans and brings all the colors of the outfit together.
I thought the moss green bag was a nice compliment to the color palette in the outfit. I’m not wearing green in any of my other pieces, but as Clinton and Stacy used to say: It doesn’t have to match; it has to go. It’s really pretty with the pumpkin colored sweater and cognac boots.
Because these boots have a higher shaft, I tucked my jeans inside, but my jeans aren’t quite skinny enough in the ankles so when I started walking around, they were sticking out a bit at the top.
This would be a good opportunity to wear socks over my jeans and allow them to peek out over the top of the booties, but I don’t have the right socks for that. Wearing them that way can chop up the leg, but it also adds interest, and if the shades of color are all in the same general level of color, it can work and look really cute.
Beyond that, I love this outfit. The fall hues are perfect for this time of year, and it’s super comfortable and easy to wear.
