WWKW?

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.

My Old Navy Fall Picks

A chunky knit cardigan that I could LIVE in all season long, a flannel button down that is oversized for a boyfriend fit, merlot colored pants with zippered pockets for more of an edge, a tweed vest for layered perfection, all of these plus more caught my eye.  Old Navy has so many basic tops in all shapes, sizes, colors and textures – they are one of my go-to places for basics at great prices.  Think about getting some tops that fit well for your body type and make you feel cozy and comfy to layer under scarves, cardigans, chunky knits, button downs, and vests for the upcoming chill.  Fall is all about the layers, ladies and gents.

My J Crew Factory Fall Picks

Still looking forward to fall shopping.  Here are my J Crew Factory fall picks:

J Crew Factory Fall Picks

 

I am the type of girl that gravitates towards black, white, navy, and oatmeal colors.  I love grey t-shirts.  I could buy one from every store and want more.  They are always the softest, most versatile pieces of clothing in my opinion.  If I had to live on a deserted island I would bring an old grey t-shirt with me.  It would be one of my 3 items I’m allowed to take, as the joke goes.  Naturally, fall is my favorite season to dress for because most of my favorite colors to dress with are on spotlight.  Don’t get me wrong, I do love neon and bright pink, however, most items of clothing I own are neutral (I get it from my mother).  The items I’ve chosen are a perfect blend of comfort and style.  I think mixing a merlot pencil skirt with a casual camo tee and being able to throw a crewneck sweater over it when the night air gets a chill in it is an amazing combination.  Elastic band skirts and pants that are in style?!  An old soul’s dream.  I hope you love these pieces as much as I do.  Enjoy!  ♥xo Kathryn

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!

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?!

Four Ways – H&M Shorts

My friend Amanda and I have the same H&M floral shorts. We were talking about how cute they are the other day and she mentioned she wasn’t sure what she should wear with them – thus, a post was born. Even though these shorts are patterned and could be considered hard to pair with items, when you start putting outfits together and brainstorming, you can see they are very versatile. I try not to purchase something unless I can see myself wearing it, at minimum, 3 different ways. I like to have items I can mix and match and wear often (let’s get our money’s worth, ladies).  I went with a casual option and a dressier option (for a day date or the like) and two other day-to-day choices. I also thought of weather changes and looked for short sleeve and long sleeve items. These floral shorts can go from early spring to early fall if you really get creative. Enjoy!
