Hey guys! Are some of your favorite clothes only appropriate for the warmer months? Is that top perfect for a special occasion except for the fact that you’d freeze in it?? Most of my wardrobe is made for the warmer weather, so once those couple of cold weeks hit here in California, I have to get creative. I have some styles for you that incorporate your favorite piece and are also practical for November and December! Check out these great layered looks for autumnal and winter fashion inspiration!
Comfy, Cozy, and Off to Class!
Unfortunately in San Diego and Southern California as a whole, we don’t get a whole lot of the changing of the seasons. The days are usually sunny and don’t call for jackets, scarves, or cute hats. However, its usually a bit chilly during my morning class, so I will opt for jeans, boots, and some sort of cute top. This is a great outfit if you live somewhere similar! This adorable blouse from Irene’s Story is light and airy with a beautiful fall color and floral pattern. The lace at the front gives a nice feminine touch and makes the whole look a little more extravagant. The back is pretty open and has an adorable tie at the top. The cut is super flattering and a gray bralette worked perfectly with it. (I got the bralette for $12 at Owl Fish by the way!) Simple ripped jeans worked well with this top, since I was going for a casual, comfortable look.
As for accessories, I wore these great black boots from Steve Madden. I have been wearing them everyday lately, I’m just so in love with them! Unlike most heels, they are actually very comfortable! I also wore my favorite Tiffany’s necklace to keep the look simple. I always keep it pretty plain when it comes to jewelry since I’m not the biggest fan of statement necklaces at the moment.
A Girlboss in Every Season!
There are a couple weeks in the year when we actually get rain, fog, and wind! These days call for the perfect jacket or sweater. I found this one yesterday at Irene’s Story and I absolutely love how it looks like part of a man’s suit. It’s a masculine cut but also very beautiful when thrown over this top with the lace. It’s very long and extremely cozy! Better yet, it has pockets on each side, allowing for easy access to your phone, a small wallet, or earbuds. I don’t really know what you guys keep in your pockets on the regular, but the pockets on this jacket are just great and that’s all you need to know, LOL!
This will be my face in my future career, about to walk into a meeting, knowing I’m about to slay the game.
The Next Gossip Girl
For some reason, once I threw on this scarf, I felt VERY New York, specifically Gossip Girl which I’ve been binging for the second time! Although I think whenever you throw on a nice jacket and big scarf, it always screams NYC and that sort of hustle bustle life. New York is somewhere that is high up on my bucket list, so hopefully I can wear an outfit like this some day in that bright city. I bought this enormous scarf at Zara a couple years ago before my first trip to Boston, and somehow it got buried in my closet at home and I’ve just rediscovered it! It’s almost the size of a blanket, so I like to take each opposite corner and fold it over. It’s long, warm, and totally preppy with the print! It’s crazy how one item can completely transform a look!
I hope you all enjoyed this outfit transformation! It’s amazing how you can take a lightweight blouse like this one, add a jacket and/or scarf, and it’s magically perfect for a new season! Fashion is mind blowing, people! I really loved mixing and matching these items that usually don’t go together. Let me know what you think of it or if you have any fashion advice for the winter that you’d like to share! Talk to you soon! xx
