Welcome back to day 2 of 26 Days of Fall Fashion 2017! Today I’m styling a pink and grey outfit for fall and talking about how to wear white jeans after Labor Day and make it look intentional.
This grey cardigan came in my last Trunk Club, and it’s a nice mid-weight and less than $50. It comes in 6 colors, but this marled grey is extremely versatile. It pairs well with both black and white as well as just about any pastel or jewel tone. I think this combination of blush, white, and grey is really pretty and a little unexpected for fall.
UPDATE: I just saw that this cardigan is sold out. I swear to you, it was in stock in all colors just yesterday. #igiveup I’ll add some options to the shopping widget at the bottom. At least grey cardigans aren’t difficult to come by!
My blush linen tee is from Banana Republic, but it sold out. I also have a blush tee from Caslon, but it seems like that color is also sold out right now, so I’m linking to a similar one at LOFT. The deeper pink would be pretty with this outfit, although I do like the more neutral tone of the blush I’m wearing. This twist front top would also work, and the color is closer to mine.
This sweater has a ribbed texture, and it hangs nicely. It’s not scratchy at all, so it’s comfortable to throw on over a tank top or short sleeve tee. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
Because the sweater, jeans, and tee are all fairly plain, I added interest with a layered necklace. I picked up this necklace at the Lucky Brand store, and I love how you can wear all 4 pendants together, or you can take off the bottom one or two for a three-in-one necklace. More bang for the buck!
I also like how this necklace combines gold and silver because I ended up wearing some of each throughout the rest of my outfit and this necklace helps pull it all together.
When wearing white jeans after Labor Day, you want to be sure you make your outfit look intentional for fall by wearing a chunky knit or boots or dark colors or a combination all three.
In this case, the overall color palette of the outfit is light and the sweater isn’t super heavy, so I wore suede ankle boots to be sure the white jeans look intentional and not like I forgot to put away my summer pants.
I carried a grey handbag to coordinate with the rest of the grey in the outfit. This Marc Jacobs satchel is old, so I’ll link to some other options at the end of the post.
While I love the color combination in this outfit and the way the individual pieces came together, it’s a simple outfit formula that can be recreated in a variety of ways and at any price point. It would be pretty easy to shop your closet and come up with something similar.
Be sure to visit Cyndi and see the fall outfit she’s styling today!
So who has fun Labor Day weekend plans? We’re supposed to get the remnants of Hurricane Harvey this weekend so it’s going to be a bit soggy here, but I certainly can’t complain considering what people in the Houston area are experiencing right now.
I hope my lack of commentary on that situation over the last few days doesn’t seem insensitive. It’s not that they aren’t on my mind. I’ve made several donations to organizations that I trust, and our church is getting together to build “flood buckets” to send to the areas that have been affected so I plan to help out with that. If you’re one of the few reading who is in the midst of it all, please know that you’re in my thoughts and prayers.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a weekend sale roundup and a quick “coffee talk” and then we’ll continue with 26 Days of Fall Fashion on Monday!
