The absolute best Fall outfits are the ones that are effortless. If you type in “Fall outfit ideas” on Pinterest most of the things that pop up are really basic looks (FYI you can pin any of my looks to Pinterest from this website by clicking the “pin” button in the left hand corner of each photo. It would make my entire life if one of my outfits popped up on Pinterest when you search Fall outfits! Ha!) Back to today’s look. What I absolutely love about it is it’s super cute, comfortable, and completely effortless! And as a mom to a toddler, I’m especially grateful for having all 3 of those things in one outfit.
The top is a simple white tunic with a little bit of detailing but I really believe the top completely makes the look. Well really the top and boots do. And did I mentioned it’s only $27?! It’s definitely a lighter material (And ever so slightly sheer so you could wear a cami underneath but I didn’t). So you’ll most likely be wearing it under a jacket during the colder months. But for these warmer in between weeks where we want to break out our Fall boots but it’s still pretty hot out, it’s really perfect for to wear outdoor. Or here in California he tends to be pretty cool for the first few hours a day and then get really hot in the afternoon. So today I’m wearing it with a jacket this morning and then will take off the jacket when you gets warmer in the afternoon. FYI today’s pictures last weekend. But I’m wearing the outfit today, as you’ll see in my Insta stories, which is why am posting about it today!
Oh and it only comes in 2 sizes. S/M and L/XL. I’m wearing the S/M but if it was even a millimeter smaller in the arms it would be too tight. So if I were to buy it again, I might even size up to the L/XL. The great thing about sizing up in this shirt, is you can’t really go wrong since the point of it is to be flowy and a little oversized.
The key to making this work work is a really sturdy, chunky, over-the-knee boot. I really didn’t want my boot to have a heel because I wanted it to be the most comfortable I could possibly be so I could run errands with Molly today. And I also thought it was important for my look to wear a boot that didn’t cling to my calf or thigh – again the oversized look. Ever notice so many fashion bloggers out there are usually 5’3″ 110lbs and looks super cute in all their clothes!!! (I mean the cutest!!!!) After years of purchasing their stuff, and it just not looking nearly as cute on me, I realized it’s largely because many of the clothes look slightly oversized on them and therefore, in my opinion, look extra cute! At least the Fall looks do. There’s nothing cuter for the fall and a big oversized scarf, oversized sweater, or oversized boots! There’s this one blogger I always see online (who I don’t know personally) and every single pair boots she wears I want to buy because they look oversized on her. Meaning they don’t hug her calves. But then I buy them and they just don’t look that way to me. Ha! But these boots are an actual oversized boot in my opinion. Obviously we are all different sizes, so it will vary on each of us. But I was just so happy to find a boot that looked oversize on ME even though I’m not petite. I’m 5’7″ FYI and 140lbs to 145lbs (depending on the week).

During the Fall and Winter months, I always feel like we’re lugging around more stuff with us since we have to dress in layers. That’s why I love to carry a large purse during the cooler months – something to put all those layers and as I take them off throughout the day. Also, now that I’m a mom, a large purse allows me to leave my diaper bag at home and throw my diapers and wipes in my purse! Which is an extra plus for me.
I finished off the look with a long gold necklace that adds just as a bit of polish to the overall outfit.
