Hey guys! Happy hump day! I hope all of you are having a great week so far. It’s been so stinking hot in Southern California. Like miserably hot during the day. However, like I mentioned before on my blog, I’m lucky that I wake up at 5:30 every morning with Molly because I’m able to get an early start to my day and actually dress for Fall for the first few hours. But don’t get me wrong, the scarf and vest will have to come off really soon.
I’m not even kidding you, I seriously contemplated moving to another area of the country just so we get to actually experience Fall all day long! I miss all of the seasons except for winter. Ha! That’s why I have been living in California for so long. I feel like we get Summer, Spring, and Fall. The only problem is Summer is about nine months out of the year while Spring and Fall are only for a few months.
Anyway, I’m excited to share today’s look with you because one of my favorite combos for Fall is stripes and plaid! Oh and everything I’m wearing is from Nordstrom! You guys know Nordstrom is basically my favorite store ever and I buy almost everything there. Ha! I just love shopping online but sometimes the return process can be a pain at other stores. But Nordstrom makes it so easy because when I get the box in the mail, I just try everything on, and then send back what I don’t want with the return label that’s included in the box. It couldn’t be easier! Luckily for this look, I loved everything and kept it all! I’m a Nordy’s girl for life!
My plaid scarf is a blanket scarf which I really love because it’s super cozy and gives a very full/oversized look. I like most of my scarves to be oversized. And you automatically get that when you buy a blanket scarf. This scarf is under $25 and really great quality. I think it’s back ordered right now. But if you get it it will be shipped to you the first week of November so you’ll have it soon!
And I really absolutely love striped tops during the Fall. I have shirts with black stripes, navy stripes, and red stripes a.k.a. the shirt I’m wearing today. I’m normally a size medium but I decided to size down in this shirt based on the reviews. And I’m so glad I did because the small fit me perfectly! The medium would’ve been way too big. The structure of this shirt makes it such a great layering piece for you to wear all Fall.
I layered it with this navy blue utility vest. The key to any cute Fall look is layering. And what I love about this utility vest is that you can really put it over any shirt you own and it will look cute. I put it over sweaters and button up shirts and absolutely love it! I also sized down in this vest based on the reviews and that was definitely the right call! The small fits me perfectly. So make sure you size down in this one as well.
Really you could wear any pair of jeans with this look. But I love a good quality ripped jean with it. And really you want to get a few pairs of quality jeans for the Fall and Winter. I absolutely love these Paige jeans. They’re super comfortable, flattering, and run true to size.
I’m also linking some other similar items below so you can shop a super similar look, just in slightly different colors. I like the items so much that I went ahead and ordered them too!
Hope you guys love this look! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
