Baby It’s Cold Outside

Sweater season is in full effect.  Layers, scarves, boots, puffy vests, oh my.  Have you been having fun dressing for cooler temps, too?

Accessories make it possible to change one outfit into ten.  Scarves, vests, necklaces, layering pieces, and different styles of footwear make it all possible to morph one dress into multiple outfits.  This is why I LOVE dressing during the colder months.  Is it possible to wear scarves too often?…because I think I’m an addict.

Since temperatures have started to head into preferable ranges I have had a blast dressing for the new fall season.  I have always been addicted to button down shirts and mad for plaid.  My new loafer obsession has kicked into high gear and I’ll be on the lookout for a nice pair at a reasonable price (or on sale).  New booties have been found (at Marshalls for $20!!  High five!).  Boots pulled from the closet and dusted off, made for walking, have been making a debut as well.  Scarves, oh scarves…  I can’t explain how excited I get to dress for milder temperatures.  Recent wears:

My new loves.  Extremely soft on the inside with a fur lining, just enough Western flair stitching mixed with a more modern shape, and a color that I can make go with anything.  For twenty bucks, that’s a steal.

We are entering that weird stage of weather when there is a chill in the morning and in the mid-90s by the time you leave work.  Speaking of work, the climate resembles that of a meat locker in the office building I work at so I’ve been enjoying inside sweater weather, but sweating after walking out the door at 5pm into a wall of humidity (stripping down to the bare minimum in the car much?).  There has to be a happy medium somewhere, and I’m bound & determined to find it at some point!  Here are some of my recent outfits:  (you can tell which days I’m going to work and which days I’m outside on the weekend LOL)

I honestly dislike this “in between” weather, I wish I could just dress for summer or just dress for fall, however, until October I probably will not get my wish.  I’ll have to make the best of both worlds until then.  Layers, layers, layers!

I hope you’re enjoying your day!

My H&M Fall Picks

If you want to know what Kathryn would wear, you’re in luck.  College football season has kicked off and I’m sitting front row on my couch with a nice fall brew, homemade buffalo chicken dip & chips, and my laptop on my lap with my fall picks in mind.  I love browsing and online shopping while watching television.  I have been searching websites for my top fall picks and making mental notes for some future outfits.  Here are my picks from H&M:

Casual, dress up/down, layering, mixing textures, & dark jewel tones are catching my attention.

Fall Pairings

We’re into August, which means fall styling is upon us [cue fist pump and large smile].  Fall trends and fashions are hitting stores and online boutiques full force.  Easily being my favorite season, I’m very excited to see it all happen.  The first time I see pumpkins lined up outside of the grocery store I squeal with delight each year.  The crisp air, chilly mornings, seasonal beer, and college football always have me smiling.

I played around on Polyvore to put together a few of my favorite looks that I want to recreate this season.  I’m also working on a wish list of items that I’d like to see grace my closet and help me achieve the looks I’m going for.  I adore denim on denim (aka, the Canadian tuxedo, as it is also lovingly referred to), buffalo plaid makes me giddy, soft knit sweaters, loafers, boyfriend jeans, and colored denim make my heart sing.  Each item is easily mixed and matched with others making it extremely versatile, which is my favorite thing of all!  Isn’t the casual fall season the best?!

Loafer Love ♥

photo

Have you noticed that loafers have become extreme?  Some of the designs are a little too far out there for me, but there are so many that I wouldn’t mind (aka love) showing off and wearing around.  Besides the level of comfort they provide, they have become quite fashionable, proving they can be the best of both worlds instead of just your Uncle Benny’s favorite house attire.  I have gathered an assortment from an array of vendors and prices, ranging from bold & daring to simply stated.

I have two pairs of loafers that I scored from TJ Maxx at great prices that I am smitten with.  I feel as if I can pair them with multiple outfits and throw them on as easily as I can shuck them off.  I believe the collection should grow with a statement pair, right?

The pair in the picture above: Dolce Vita priced under $30, and the pair below with a casual look I wore earlier this week:  Report for under $20.
