When it’s the end of October and you’re still dealing with 90 degree weather, you really have to get creative with how you dress. If you know anything about Texas weather you know how bi-polar it is… I mean, one day it could be in the 30s and the next day would be sunny and 85. As you can imagine, this makes it extremely difficult to accurately plan my Fall outfits! Layering is key when you’re having to deal with weather that can’t make up it’s mind!
Most of my friends and clients start packing away their summer wardrobe in preparation for the Fall weather but I seriously feel that I am still buying summer clothing and tank tops all winter long! I literally stock pile my tank tops all year because I know with our weather I will be wearing them on a daily basis whether it is layered under a cardigan or leather jacket or just by itself because it’s so hot outside!
The outfit in this post is a perfect example of the way I do Fall. I’m one of those people that absolutely hates the warm weather but refuses to live anywhere else but Texas so I just suffer! The cold is where I belong though! Mainly because I get so damn hot so fast! So even when it’s 30 outside, I’ll most likely have a tank top on and a coat so I can strip down when I get inside somewhere. Artificial heat is a killer so I definitely need to peel off layers inside during our winters!
This cardigan from Chicwish is one of my favorite winter scores lately. Sadly, it sold out so dang quick but I have linked a couple of options below and it does come in BLACK!! This cardi was perfection in my eyes because it is so well made and heavy duty that I can easily throw on a light weight top underneath and be good to go! Now don’t get me wrong, I do love a super cozy look! And this would be mega cozy with a big blanket scarf and beanie on in the snow! A girl can dream, right?!
I think I have been even more excited to whip out all of my winter boots!! Last year I literally lived in beanies and boots and I can’t see that changing this year. I scored these amazing Vince Camuto beauties a couple weeks ago and am so in love!! I mean, look at that lace up detail!! I’m sure at this point everyone is so sick of seeing the variety of lace up goodies I post but I can’t get enough! These boots even come in multiple colors too!! You know what else comes in tons of colors and isn’t a lace up??? My new favorite cross body! I have this bag in a gorgeous cognac color and couldn’t help but buy the navy! It goes with everything and is such an easy bag to carry around.
