As I awoke last week and opened my newsfeed I saw posts of pumpkin, plaid, pumpkin spice, and all things fall! Happy first of Autumn everyone! As I leaped (more like sluggishly crawled out) out of bed to get dressed my first thought was yesssss time for boots, sweaters, and all things cozy! As I slipped on my jeans, suede booties, and sweater to hop out the door and start walking to my car it looked like someone poured a bucket of water on me was how much I started sweating. Note to self, even though it is the first day of Autumn the weather can still be a scorching 90 degrees! So this post is dedicated to my gals out there who want that fall style, but want to feel literally “cool” in this warmer weather!
The look I am giving you is a sweater dress with a partial higher neckline, a sleeveless trench vest, and black pleather booties. The sleeveless sweater dress is a great staple piece for your closet since it gives you the feel of fall and this can transition perfectly when it is colder pairing with a leather jacket or high boots. At first, the trench vest felt a little hard to pair with different looks, but I got some inspo from the Who What Wear Collection Instagram! It can also pair great with jeans and a black tee as seen in my post last year.
So I know what you are thinking that the fashion gods may frown upon me for wearing a midi dress and I am wearing ankle boots which will make my legs appear “shorter.” To be perfectly honest, I felt great in this look and that is what matters! Forget the rules, wear what feels good!
What are your favorite trends you are looking forward to this fall? Let’s start the convo, comment below!
