This post is in collaboration with Tobi. All opinions are my own.
When I think of Fall fashion, I instantly envy everyone who lives up north. The idea of hiking in isolation, apple picking, staying inside a log cabin and smelling the fresh air of the mountain side makes me wish I lived anywhere besides the aggressively humid, sun-blinding, and crowded population of downtown Houston. Leave a comment below telling me what Fall weather is like in your city!
Although Texas has many charms, it's not particularly the "hot spot" Fall destination. With all the latest Fall collections arriving in stores, it's so hard to wear the latest Fall trends without feeling like you're burning yourself alive. Yet, I still desire to wear a cozy sweater, scarf, and some knee-length boots. Sue me.
With Thanksgiving around the corner (can't believe it's next week!), I wanted to style three everyday looks that can easily be layered- so it can cater to everyone's seasonal climate area. Even when I was shooting around the city, I can guarantee you that these outfits are Houston weather-approved! I will talk in depth about certain pieces of each outfit that were graciously given to me by Tobi and how to elevate them for a casually chic style. Keep reading for more outfit details!
LOOK #1: STRIPE AWAY
I can't lie....stripes aren't exactly my thing. However, what made me adore this outfit was the diagonal print of the stripes! Despite the cardigan's heavy fabric, the print can make any figure appear to have an elongated body frame. The draping of the cardigan also compliments the little white dress from Tobi. With the holiday season, there's no question to how versatile an ivory colored dress can be! The turtleneck in this dress is not too chunky, so the dress doesn't feel super constricting or problematic to wear. The shift fit is a classic design, making it easy to wear with coats, scarves, and cardigans. Adding a knee-high leather boot will make you look dressed for Fall! For colder climates, wearing knitted tights would be the perfect touch for this look!
LOOK #2: BETTER THAN PJS
Want an outfit that feels like you never got out of bed? This sage colored sweater dress from Tobi makes me feel super cozy and ready to relax by a fireplace! I love the way the colors of the scarf really compliment the dress, making it an eye-catching accessory! I simply finished off the look with over-the-knee suede boots for a more chic style. To make this dress approved for chillier weather, pairing this dress with a puffy long coat and long fleece tights would help keep you extra warm!
LOOK #3: A FLARE FOR FALL
Make your Fall outfit a little more daring with an open shoulder top! Although this piece is probably more suited for LA weather, it certainly adds a Fall-boho vibe paired with dark skinny jeans and a black hat! The beautiful draping of the flared sleeves adds a subtly romantic touch to the casual look. Having fitted dark pieces to the outfit makes the top the statement piece! Pair thisgrey top with a faux fur vest and pointy-toed boots to add more drama to the look!
Which look do you prefer? Each outfit has a unique component to them, whether it's print, design, and/or color. With a solid color piece, any layers added to it can easily make an outfit Fall ready!
