Hello from the South Carolina Lowcountry! I’m being hosted by Mazda and spending a few days at the Montage at Palmetto Bluff. It is beyond gorgeous here.
I was surprised to discover that this is not just a resort; it’s actually a whole development comprising vacation homes, residential homes, a luxurious inn, a little town square, and lots of open space and wetlands that are being carefully and lovingly preserved. It’s still in development, and it’s really cool to experience the area and see how it’s coming along.
This is the Inn, and I’m staying in one of the guest houses along the lagoon.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch… it’s Day 23 of 26 Days of Fall Fashion!
I picked up this denim skirt at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale back in July, and for some reason, I haven’t worn it much. I always struggle with what shirts to pair with skirts because they always seem too long if left untucked, and tucking shirts in all the way around doesn’t really work for me.
I finally decided the only answer is the front tuck. I’m still not crazy about this trend because while it looks cute from the front, I don’t think it does much for the rear view. Still, it seems to be the best solution at this point.
Of course, a jean skirt is appropriate all year round, but there’s something I love about a jean skirt for fall. It’s so cute paired with ballet flats, tall boots, or booties. For this outfit, I decided to go with booties.
On top, I wore a navy and white striped V-neck tee. I absolutely love this linen one for the cut and quality and fabulous drape, but I’ll include some lower priced options below.
This skirt is super comfortable. I wore it all day on Sunday, and I loved it. I can’t believe I haven’t worn it till now. It has just enough stretch that you can move, but it doesn’t stretch out. The length is perfect, and it has a nice wash with a little bit of distressing but not too much to deem it inappropriate for church and other similar venues.
I carried this Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag because I love how well it goes with the booties, and the casual style is perfect with this outfit.
I added a leopard belt for interest, but you can hardly see it. Oh well!
This outfit is adorable on its own, and it’s perfect for those milder fall days when it still gets quite warm in the afternoons, but I also wanted to show some options for when it gets cooler.
Another option is a leather jacket. This is the variation of this outfit that I ended up wearing to church on Sunday.
This jacket came in my first Trunk Club last year, and I was excited to bring it out again this fall. I’ve always been a sucker for a leather jacket, and burgundy is a fun departure from the traditional black or brown. My jacket is no longer available, but I’ll link to several options below.
This is by far my favorite of the three looks. I love the added interest of a top layer, and the jacket is more flattering than the cardigan, although they both work for different purposes. I can also see wearing this with tights and tall boots when it gets colder.
I hope you’re having a good week so far! I’m off to test drive some Mazdas and then take a bike tour of Hilton Head. Fun, fun!!!
Be sure to visit Cyndi and see the fall outfit she’s styling today!
