Casual Layers (Part Deux)

Argyle + Stripes + Denim

Autumn is considering taking up residence in the A, so mornings/evenings are a bit chilly (at least to me, an admittedly cold-natured person). This is one of those very casual, layered outfits that easily adapts to schizophrenic weather. When it warms up, I can swap the boots for Tretorns or flats; lose the jacket (and the vest, if necessary); roll up the sleeves of the button-down; give the shirt a quick half-tuck in the front; and done!

I’m debating whether or not to put away my summer things, and get my fall stuff out of storage… Have you switched out your closets yet? Too soon?

  1. I just saw my sweat pants in my closet the other day. I have so many plans for them for the Fall! I cannot wait to wear them. I am not convinced that I can dress them up yet, but I am definitely looking forward to having fun with them.

      Oh yes, ma’am: you can definitely dress them up if you like. If your sweats are fitted, style them as if they were skinny jeans. For example, add a blouse, blazer, and pretty flats for just a little sweatpant elevation; for a bit more, pair them with a tuxedo blazer, sparkly tank, and killer heels.

  2. I don’t put away clothes. I wear fall stuff in the summer, summer stuff in the fall, winter stuff in the spring.
    That could explain why my closets and dresser drawers need reorganizing. 🙂

      I love the idea of seasonless dressing as well. You have serious closet space to leave everything out all the time. That’s the stuff of dreams 🙂
