Going down in blaze of glory

What better way to look casually preppy or preppy casual than to wear a blazer and jeans. Amirite? It’s a casually cool and comfortable look.

Striped blazer, given to me; ruffled button up tee, given to me; ripped jeans, old; backpack purse, old; black cat eye sunglasses, Rue21; red floral necklace, Anne Taylor Loft; red chandelier earrings, old; sketchers, Ross.

A friend gave me a bag of clothes a month ago and since then discovered she has leukemia. Please send prayers!

Today I styled and photographed some outfits put together with things she gave me plus some of my own stuff.  (Just one featured today.)

Before fall is totally gone, I had to get in a bit of leaf throwing!

Yep. I’m a dork. And I’m okay with that. Then just like that, back to smooth jazz, real cool…

Thank you for stopping by, and happy leaf throwing!

How to keep pretty colors in your fall wardrobe

Do you ever notice how fall colors in clothing get a bit, well, ugly during this time of year? I mean, how can they be so pretty out in nature and so awful in the store? You start seeing baby puke yellow, poop green, muddy orange all mixed in with brown to make a putrid fall color palette.

Enough, I say! Let’s try to make fall as pretty in our clothing color schemes as the colors are the rest of the year.

Royal blue peplum top, TJ Maxx; Leopard print pants, TJ Maxx; red booties, old, gifted to me by Sole Society; Betsey Johnson cat ear sunglass, old, Marshall’s; leather jacket, old; similar here. Colorblock handbag, given to me.

A few ways to keep fall beautiful:

  • Choose bold colors that pop.
  • Don’t mix everything with brown
  • Mimic nature
  • Be different
  • Just say no to color combos that look like something your cat just barfed up.

 

Thank you for your attention to this very important matter. If we all work together, we can make our fall wardrobes beautiful again.

Happy fall, ya’ll!
