First Day of Autumn OOTD!

Hey everyone! Happy Monday! It’s the start of a new week so let’s make it a great one! I want to kick this week off with an OOTD. It’s been a minute since I’ve posted one and I’ve got tons of new things for the fall. Muted tones have definitely been a big trend this year. From light pastel shades in the summer to pale yellows and auburn tones for this new season. As you know, Southern California doesn’t get extremely cold, even in the winter. Sadly, even our rainy days have become extremely limited. So although you won’t see tons of heavy jackets and snow shoes in any of my looks, I can show you the best ways to layer and get into the autumn mood even if you live somewhere warm!

I’ve taken any chance I can get to wear these pants. They’re probably some of the comfiest pants I own, partly because the fabric isn’t super thick and they move well with your body. The waist of them is so unique. The cinching really helps bring in your waist and give that old timey look. The fabric flares out near the top while a bow ties at the front to give that feminine edge. The “belt” is actually sewn to the pants so you don’t have to worry about it moving around. The black with white stripes are giving me serious Beetlejuice vibes for the Halloween time, and I kind of don’t mind!

It’s amazing how many looks can come from one pair of pants! I originally imagined these pants with an oversized sweater tucked into them. I’m really going for the cozy yet put together look this season. I would love to wear that outfit on a rainy day on my way to work.  For today’s OOTD though, I paired them with a simple white spaghetti strap tank and a light cardigan. Again, today was a pretty warm day so I didn’t need anything super heavy. I honestly felt super comfortable in this look but I’d totally wear it out. As for shoes, I’ve been wearing these black Rebecca Minkoff mules everywhere. I especially adore them with this outfit. They’re so easy to slip on if you’re in a hurry and I love the small jeweled details. They also carry these in white and a pale pink, but I knew personally I would wear the black ones more often.

I’d also love to wear a big denim jacket with these pants. Depending on where you’re going I think a denim jacket or a cardigan like this is the best way to go. Pants like these are perfect for the work environment but can also be transformed for a fun lunch date. From the cuffed bottoms to a cozy cardigan, I’m in love with this outfit! Let me know what you think of it down below in the comments. Do you have any specific pieces that are perfect for the transition from summer to fall?

  1. I have a pair of pants in that style too, but mine are a khaki color! Love the cardigan you’ve got (: I found some gorgeous pointy-toed shoes at Madewell the other day that I ADORED, but sadly I got my mom’s big toes and the pair didn’t fit haha

  2. I love these as they are perfect no matter what the weather is – they are warm enough for the colder months but yet still lightweight enough to work in summer – and they are perfect for transitioning between work and social as you said. I think my staple item at the moment are my converse – comfy enough for work but also perfect for socialising. xx
