September 22 came and went which means it is officially fall. So we have stepped into the season of which sweaters, scarves, and nutmeg and cinnamon-spiced everything are the mascots.
I’m not mad about it.
My fall wardrobe consists mainly of cardigans and scarves because sartorially, I tend to lean toward simple silhouettes and classic pieces that can be paired with other pieces easily. I try not to buy a ton of clothes and instead invest in quality items that can withstand a lot of wear. A cardigan thrown over a tank and a well-fitted pair of jeans is about as easy and classic as it gets so these make up the foundation of a lot of my outfits. Also, southern winters are very mild so a cardigan counts as a “coat” here until at least the new year (Hey northerners, sorrynotsorry).
Even though I love color I typically keep my color palettes pretty neutral, with an outlier color thrown in to break up the monochromaticity. In an outfit like this, when I play more with multiple tones, I keep the color scheme complementary. Fall colors play well with each other since they tend to be rich, deep shades of neutrals.
This outfit is made up of a lot of my favorites. This cardigan is one I wear often because it goes. With. Everything. This scarf is a rich shade of gold which complements my skin tone so well, and I have a rich gold eyeshadow that I wear with it sometimes that… just… girl…
These ballet flats are amazing and you’ve probably heard about these shoes from your girlfriend or seen them on your Pinterest feed. Yes, they do fit like a dream. And yes, they are worth every single penny. Let me know if you’d like me to review these flats and answer some of your Q’s. I get asked questions about them regularly and I’d love to tell you what I think!
