Light Fall Layers

We experienced our first fall chill in St. Louis last weekend. Not quite coat weather, I did some light layering to stay cozy and warm. My favorite pieces in my wardrobe are seasonless staples that can be styled all-year round. Yesterday, I reached for a few of those and threw them together to create a comfy fall outfit.

Shirt— (old) | ,







Today’s look started with the outfit I wore in the Fall Fashion Forward post. I kept most of the items in that look, added a long-sleeve shirt, and switched the shoes from pumps to oxfords. And, just like that, the ensemble was made appropriate for a colder day.

Oxfords are an easy choice for adding a lil hip flavor to fall looks. I’m quite fond of this  because of its sleek and slim silhouette. The oxfords come laced, but can be worn laceless. I got them in my usual size 8, and they’ve been comfortable right out of the box.

I’ve gotten so much use out of the gingham button-down shirt I’m wearing. I purchased it on sale in J.Crew Factory last fall. It has a comfortably close fit that makes it perfect for layering. Remember how surprisingly well it paired with leopard? Shopping for one? Check out the new  and this .

Today’s images were taken at the Falstaff ghost sign in my neighborhood. I shot the earlier version of this look at the same location.

      Thanks, Marcy! I wear a size 6 in Venus bottoms. I'm wearing these pants in a size small, which corresponds to a size 4/6 on Venus' size chart. They fit perfectly.
