It’s almost the end of fall. There aren’t as many colors in the world, it is getting much colder, and it is getting darker earlier (making us think that it is midnight when it’s actually 6 pm). And in some places in the world, this wonderful white thing called snow is falling from the sky. If you are from California, the only thing that could possibly be falling from the sky is rain.
But, one of my favorite things about fall/winter is the fashions. I am a jackets and boots kind a girl. I have a whole slew of coats and jackets and winter boots that I want to wear all the time. So, because of my love for fashion, I decided to post a few pictures for you of some of my favorite fall outfits.
DISCLAIMER! My roommate Hannah took these pictures for me and so the complete look may not be seen because of the fact that the pictures didn’t turn out that great. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to show off the beautiful double-breasted coat, it just because they didn’t turn out. Apologies in advance.
Number 1: City Girl Country Wear
I absolutely love this outfit! I will wear this every day if I possibly could (unfortunately, people might get a bit worried about me if I did). But it is super cute and I love the look.
The flannel shirt is a mens shirt that I purchased from Wal-Mart 2 years ago. I always roll up the sleeves to give it bit of a more feminine look. But if it is cold enough, I will keep the sleeves down to keep my arms warm. I paired this flannel with a white tank top and skinny jeans. And finally the boots! I love the girlishness of the boots. There are sparkles, but it still looks like a classy boot. I received these as a Christmas gift last year and I wish that I could get the other colors.
Here are some pieces of clothing that look like mine that you can add to your wardrobe!
Number 2: Kate Middleton Meets Middle Class
I love how classy this outfit looks. I could go out on the town in it or I could go shopping. Okay, maybe without the heels, but you get the idea.
I bought the coat from Target 2 years ago on Sale for $60! It was a steal! Okay, maybe not so much, but you get the point. It is a beautiful double-breasted coat that nice and warm. I have paired it with skinny jeans (again) and some white and black lace heels. These shoes were purchased from a thrift stores years and years ago, but they are comfortable and cute!
Number 3: Riding into the Fashion
If this doesn’t make you want to go out and ride a horse, I don’t know what will. It feels really country western, yet feels kind of like a dressage outfit. I think it’s the jacket and boot combination is what makes it look that way.
My grandma gave me this jacket on a whim. I remember Haley going into my grandma’s house to drop something off and comes outside holding the coat. I rolled down my window, saying “if you’re asking me if I want that, the answer is yes”. It has a little bit of an old fashion look with the addition of elbow patches. I styled this with skinny jeans and multi-colored boots that I bought from GoodWill for $12! What a steal!
Number 4: New Age Nancy Drew
Now, if you are like me and grew up reading Nancy Drew, there were times you wanted to dress like her. The really posh, fashionable, yet still functioning teenage girl who was a detective.
So I bought this jacket from a thrift store (shocker of the year!) and it’s Macy’s brand jacket. It isn’t that warm, but boy is it cute! I paired this with a white lace shirt and nude sparkly flats from Target. Do I look like I could go out and fight crime in this?
Number 5: Rock Star Ready
This outfit is my favorite outfit to wear out. I’ve worn it to company parties, fundraisers, and school. I love the versatility of how it could be formal but still casual.
Let’s start with the jacket. I received this leather jacket as a Christmas present. It is Apartment 9 and it came from Kohls. (PS: it is still available). The shirt is a high low short sleeve with sheer on the bottom. I bought it from Family Dollar for something like $10. The jeans are actually juniors that I bought from JCPenny’s a few years ago. They are Arizona and boy are they comfortable. I have them in blue and red, but now they are available in pink…I might have to buy them. And finally, the boots. I bought them from a flea market for $12. They are extremely comfortable and look good with anything I put them with.
So here are some of my favorite fall/winter outfits. I hope that you enjoyed seeing some of my favorite outfits and some of my favorite pieces of clothing from my closet. Do you have a favorite outfit that you just have to wear every fall/winter?
Before I leave you, the raffle for the Mediterranean lamp has closed. I would like to congratulate Manda on winning this beautiful lamp! Congratulations!
