Hi, Friends!!! Today, I’m talking about some fall classics! I’m still all about fall on the blog, even though it doesn’t feel quite like fall yet in Houston. A couple of mornings this week were cool, but, by lunch, the temperature went right back to normal (hot)! When the temperatures start going down, this look is something I’ll be wearing. This, to me, is a perfect casual fall look. The burgundy corduroy pants, the green jacket, the beige/tan suede ankle boots…the colors…the fabrics…it all screams fall.
First, I’ll talk about the jacket. It’s probably one of my favorite, most used pieces in my wardrobe. Though the olive color and lightweight fabric are ideal for fall, I wear my green jacket year-round. It’s PERFECT for traveling. I bought it some years ago at JC Penney, but I’ve linked to similar styles below. I think having a light jacket like this is a wardrobe must!
I paired the jacket with other fall classics, corduroy and ankle boots! Corduroy reminds me of high school or college, probably because that’s the last time I owned anything with that fabric before I bought these burgundy beauties from Nordstrom. I love the color, and it feels good to be back in corduroy!
Similar to the corduroy, I don’t really own any ankle boots, except for this pair from Old Navy. Every fall, I admire ankle booties of all colors, styles, and prints in ads and on others, but whenever I try on a pair, I just don’t like it on ME! Am I the only one that has this ankle boot struggle? They tend to hit the legs in such a weird place that I don’t ever find flattering on myself. I just feel like my legs look stubby when wearing them. The only way I like wearing ankle boots on myself is with rolled up slim cut jeans/pants. I have dreams that I will one day find a pair or two that I can feel good wearing in other ways. I’m always searching! When I find the right ones, I’ll share the journey with you.
Have a great weekend, and thanks so much for reading!
