Falling into Fall

Tomorrow is the first day of fall. Waah. I love the beginning of fall, but hate the way it ends. All bitter and cold with winter-like weather creeping in. If only I can live in a land of eternal summer all year round! Sigh.

Wrap cardigan, gifted to me similar here, silk top c/o Mott & Bow, black skinny jeans c/o Mott & bow, blue turquoise disk dangle earrings, Target, black wedge sandals, similar, here. Tortoiseshell cat ear sunglasses, Betsey Johnson. Don’t give a damn attitude, earned it.

Time to start transitioning our summer clothes into fall appropriate attire. Today I am adding a wrap poncho. Wrap cardigan? Wrap? Not sure what this is. This wrap thingamabob. (Yes. I think that’s a word. My dad uses it all the time. Haha.) This was given to me by someone who wasn’t quite sure how to wear it. Well. Neither am I sure how to style it, but I thought I’d give it a go.

I chose to wrap the cardigan wrap thingy around my waist and tied it in the back.

Is it weird in the back? And do I care? No. I do not care.

This is what it looks like un-wrapped around my waist. It’s long, the sides hang down. It’s fun, but really, how did the maker intend for this to be worn? I really want to know.

Conclusion of the weird wrap cardigan thingamajig: It’s soft and warm and weird shaped, but I like it. Still don’t know if I’m wearing it ‘properly’. Still don’t care. I think I’ll play around with this one a bit more as autumn overtakes us.

Current trend I’m loving

Do you ever see a fashion trend you love right away while others may take some time to warm up to? Well this trend is one I’ve liked right from the get-go.

 

Burgundy pants, white button up shirt, black faux fur collar cardigan, black booties and cat eye sunglasses

 

I’m talking about racing stripes on the side of clothes. Mostly I like them on the sides of pants, but they could also be on the sleeves of a top or the sides of a dress as well. Super cute.

I found the pair I’m wearing in this photo at Old Navy. I had a $5 Verizon Up reward, searched through the clearance racks for something I liked in my size and found this for $10.50. So I got them for $5.50. Whoohoo! I love a good deal.

I paired my new pants with the racing stripe down the side with a white button up shirt, black wedge booties, a black faux fur cardigan, black leather jacket for extra warmth on a cold day plus a retro white purse and my cat ear Betsey Johnson sunglasses. (Still love these sunglasses the most out of all my sunglasses!)

What are some current trends you’re loving right now? And which ones are you still on the fence about? I’m still trying to decide how I feel about snakeskin print. I think that is one trend where a little bit goes a long way, and is kind of fun in unexpected colors. But definitely don’t wear it head to toe. Way. Too. Much. Snakeskin.
