Living in Texas, it can be such a struggle knowing how to dress in the months leading up to fall. It’s usually still warm out, but there can often be random cool days as well. I’ve found that the best way to dress is usually layers.
I loved pairing this lightweight sleeveless sweater from Gap with my favorite pair of denim shorts for a fun fall look. The length on this sweater makes it perfect if I just want something light, but it’s still cool enough to wear on those warmer days. I also love that this sweater can be paired with jeans and a long sleeve top during the winter.
By the way, I was so shocked to find these Steve Madden mules at Nordstrom Rack clearance for under $35! I think I must’ve grabbed one of the last green pairs, but it’s still available in black, which would be SO cute for winter. The style is incredibely comfortable too—and gets tons of compliments!
It was only a couple years ago that I was given my first pair of prescription glasses. Growing up, I wanted to wear glasses so bad, but I was also cursed with 20/20 vision, so I never got a pair. 😉 When I started going to the optometrist a couple years ago, he encouraged me to get a pair of screen protecting glasses since I stare at a computer screen for so many hours a day.
These glasses have been a total game changer. Not only do my eyes feel much less fatigued and dry, I finally get to feel cool wearing glasses. If you wear prescription glasses (or just love sunglasses as much as I do), I highly recommend checking out Warby Parker’s fall collection. The collection is made up of both eyeglasses and sunglasses.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Warby Parker for several reasons. First, I love that they make glasses affordable. If you’ve followed my blog for any amount of time, you probably have noticed I have a thing for affordable clothing, accessories, etc. Secondly, Warby Parker partners with non-profits like VisionSpring to ensure that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.
If you need another reason to love Warby Parker as much as I do, check out/shop their entire fall collection below. The fall collection focuses on colorblocking and mixed materials—two major trends for the season.
I love a good peplum top. I think they are so flattering in the mid section and I love the feminine touch of the peplum ruffles. This lace peplum top from Halogen takes the femininity to the next level. I love everything about this top from the color to the feminine detailing.
When I was styling this in my head, I thought I would pair it with brown or nude shoes and a brown bag, but after trying it on with black accessories, I loved the contrast and touch of edge it adds to the look.
Many of you have probably seen these shoes all over (or at least a similar pair). I love that this pair is under $30 at Target and they’ve held up great (I’ve had them over a year now). They are available in several different colors, including taupe, which I love.
This Michael Kors Black IP Lake watch is also a favorite of mine. My husband calls it my faux-Apple watch because the shape is so similar. I really like the square shape and blacked-out look. It can be dressed up or down, depending on the day.
And last but not least is this black clutch from Bp. This bag is only $25, but feels so much more expensive. It’s also the perfect size to carry just the essentials—small wallet, phone, keys, sunglasses and lipstick.
I hope this look helped inspire some of you to pair feminine looks with a bit of edge to balance it out a little.
