I am finally back to doing my outfit of the day (OOTD) visuals and I am too excited!! If you can recall, I started this project back in Spring/Summer 2016 when I was in Atlanta, but had to stop because I uprooted my life across the country to Los Angeles to start my doctorate Clinical Psychology program (I will do a post soon about my experience, etc.). It took me awhile (about a year to be exact) to find a crew that I vibe with and now the wait is ova!!
I thought this outfit was so perfect and I put it together off of a whim. It definitely was giving me "fashionable California hiking fall vibes." Since the weather here is so in-congruent to the season (aka it's hot as hell), I decided to pair these bell bottom jeans with a crop top and a faux fur vest to give western vibes.
This weather adjustment is so stressful because while it is fall in most places in the country in October, we just had this ridiculous heat wave this week where the temp was in the 100's!!! Talk about "pissed because you got a bomb fall wardrobe that you can barely wear". However, I will not be defeated.
:: OUTFIT DETAILS ::
Crop Top: Marshalls | Faux Fur Vest: Nordstroms | Jeans: Abercrombie and Fitch
Brim Hat: TJ Maxx | Boots (knee-length): Belk
Despite the weather.... Fall is my favorite time of year because it's when you can really show off your style and creative-ness through layering. During this time, I love to either play up the accessories (like hats, belts, scarves), or play up layering my outfits (pairing a blazer with a sweater, etc).
Color trends for this season that I am looking at doing will be plays off of emerald, orange, red, gold, plum, fuchsia and of course black.
What are your "go-to" looks for this season?
