fall outfit inspiration #1

Thursday, August 7, 2014

The end of July marked the end of the summer as far as the stores in the mall are concerned. My last few mall trips I have been bombarded (and overwhelmed) by all the fall fashion.

This year I'm hoping to be more pointed about my shopping. I am HORRIBLE for buying a piece here and there and then never wearing it because I have no clue how to style it and I never considered that when purchasing. This has resulted in my clothing left tagged or worn once, never to be seen again.

So today marks the start of my fall outfit/shopping pre-planning and idea-sharing. I can't guarantee I'll actually buy and wear everything (because some things that look good in my head do NOT translate well on my body) BUT at least I have a starting point. Hope you enjoy

Fall outfit planning #1:

I saw these pants in H&M and fell in love. They inspired the outfit and I still love them. I didn't try them on because I had no time but one day I will. They're super affordable (unlike the shoes I choose - oops - clearly those will not be in my purchasing future) and cute.

I tried to pick stores that are accessible to me (I'm selfish like that)... but you could easily sub for any of the pieces.

  1. I really love this outfit... the brightness of the shirt, the floral pants... and, I have been seeing a lot of tassel purses lately, I love this one. I say go for it!! I buy a lot of pieces too that I have trouble with once I get them home. I am so tired of my summer clothes, I am ready for fall right now!

  2. So true and I have that same issue with random pieces not getting much use! The stores just bombard you sometimes way too soon for things I'd rather not think about at least for now! This outfit is so pretty, those pants are amazing and love all the accessories you choose!

  3. One of the reasons I started blogging was to start using all the random pieces in my closet. I have gotten much better at making sure that I have several wearing options before I buy. Love the floral pants and bright top!

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Maybe I should work on styling the pants another way so I have even more of an excuse to buy them ;)

    1. I still need to go try them on, they may be horrible on me, but yes, if I buy I will show how the outfit translates in real life ;)

  9. Great picks! I'm so much looking forward to fall! It's my favorite season! I'm on the hunt for a good pair of wedge booties this fall! Every time I found a pair I liked last year they were sold out in my size (probably because I refuse to pay full price, I may have to break my rule!)
