Pre-Fall



Now that it's officially August, I think I can justify starting to think about my fall wardrobe...right?  This outfit is the culmination of several pieces I've had on my wish list - a sleeveless trench (created by removing the sleeves from an old coat), army green skinnies & cognac pumps.  Each of these items is so versatile and are styles I know will be in heavy rotation over the next few months.  These heels, in particular, are the ideal color for pairing with fall's rich hues.  Add in the fact that they are real suede, totally comfortable & cost less than $60 - sold!  I consider this pairing my nod to the coming season - with layers that are light enough for our current temperatures, but in a palette that's quintessentially autumn.
  








What I'm wearing:
Old Navy Shirt (my fave white button-down!), Forever 21 trench (similar here or here), Gap Skinny Cargo Pants (25% off w/ code GAP25), c/o Sole Society Elisa Pumps, Zara bag (similar here or here), Michael Kors watch (similar), Bracelets: Forever 21 (similar) & J. Crew (similar here or here), Zara ring (similar), Ray-Ban wayfarers (similar), Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Kiss Me Coral

I am wearing a pre-fall outfit on the blog tomorrow too! I'm not finished with summer colors but it's always so hard to not start wearing fall pieces when it's all you can find online & at the stores now!

P.S. I LOVE LOVE LOVE those heels!!!

XOXO, Jenn

I absolutely love this look! It is still too hot in Albuquerque to wear layers, but I have definitely made my wish list. Those are great staples and you pieced them together beautifully.

These will be great transition pieces. Your heels are gorgeous. I always have a tough time with suede not lasting because I just don't take good care of them.

This is definitely something I could see myself wearing. I have pieces similar to all of these. Looks great on you! Trying to live it up for this last month of summer ~ it always goes too fast!!

You're scaring me, it can't be fall yet!!! I loooove this look though so I'm gonna let it slide. And every fall I dream of a cute trench vest and never get one. This is the year I get one. And a real trench too.

Sofia Donatelli said...

Love this classic look on you. Beautiful styling. I hope that you are almost unpacked in your new home and loving it.

Happy Friday!
Kisses,
