In The Midst of Autumn

Wednesday, November 11, 2015

I can hardly believe we're a third of the way into November. Along with the early emergence of in-store holiday decor, it seems as if autumn is flashing by. I can personally attribute the rush of this season to the busiest semester of my college career. It has been one of nonstop work, but I just received news yesterday to prove that it is all paying off (updates to come soon!). In terms of personal style, this lifestyle has me turning to simple outfits with subtle pops of personality.


Hand Chain: c/o Baubles & Gems | Scarf: ASOS (similar) | Shades: c/o Sunglasses Shop
Sweater: H&M (similar)| Jeans: American Eagle | Booties: Target

At least one day of my week is typically spent in my hometown. I love the sense of calm that accompanies a stay in the suburbs, and more importantly I find solace in the company of family. During these brief trips I like to take a break from my sharper city outfits and instead opt for ultimate comfort.

The best thing about this particular look is that the sweater and jeans serve as the perfect base for layering, and thus subtle outfit-repeating. The oversized blanket scarf makes such a bold statement that you can easily get away with wearing the underlying top on repeat. To add some sparkle to the darker look, I added on this lovely Baubles & Gems hand chain. I am not typically one to wear hand chains, but I've recently been loving the unique touch they add to any outfit. Let me know how you stay cozy with style this fall -- and fingers crossed that winter doesn't arrive too soon!

  10. I feel the same way about fall passing by so quickly. I can't get the fact that winter is coming in just a little over a month in my head. Why can't the weather stay like this forever? Anyways, I'm loving your outfit and I'm obsessing over that scarf!
