Any day I can layer is a good fall day! I showed this outfit in the Instagram roundup over the weekend (HERE
), but here is the head to toe version. I wore this in the mountains for a work retreat early last week. I’m pretty committed to this navy gingham button up for any trip in the fall or winter. You can see it in a few outfits in my last year’s Thanksgiving packing list (10 Pieces 15 Outfits
) as well as HERE
for some more. It’s on the thinner side for gingham tops, as opposed to the thicker and stiffer ones I’ve tried, and I prefer the flexibility and movement of this thinner one. It’s constantly in stock year round (YESSSSSS!) and available right now and on sale HERE
. I’m normally S/M or 6/8 on top and wear this in S, as it runs slightly large IMO.
I’ve said before that I used to have a hard time with pullover sweaters looking weird on me, but I finally figured out what works for me: looser fit and crewneck over v-neck. I totally love this one and got it in two colors! It’s not that thick, which maybe isn’t great for many of you but is good for me being in a warmer climate. And I love that it’s textured to make the outfit more interesting. Wearing M. See it in more colors HERE
I sometimes get questions about how to roll up sleeves on cardigans or sweaters + button ups so that the sleeves don’t look bulky. I wrote a post back in 2013 on that, so go HERE
if you want some help!
Also, for anyone asking about the comfort of these Target booties, I finally wore them for an extended period–up and down hills in the mountains no less! Was it risky and dumb because they have a heel? Yes. But I did it because of the reasons I said I would in my ankle boots comparison post HERE
(possible rain and getting scuffed in rougher terrain–didn’t want to ruin my nicer Clarks pair HERE
). I anticipated my feet hurting and needing to tough it out any day I wore them, and tough it out I did! The sole felt fine thanks to my AirPufs
, but my toes were sore from being squished. My toes are already prone to getting squished in many heels, but heels + downhill inclines in the mountains had me longing for my flat tan Clarks booties. At least I was smart enough to bring my white sneakers too! 🙂
