OOTD: Feeling a little Autumn

It’s still in the 90s most days in Arizona, but that doesn’t stop me from craving Autumn.  So I on color and texture to get that feel!

For the color part, I am wearing a cotton printed-plaid maxi-skirt.  It’s nearly a full circle, so I tried to hold the skirt up in order to make it more visible.  It’s a favorite from Marshall’s (similar plaids but in bolder colors, or similar colors in print), and is actually a standard misses XL.  (Elastic waist full circle skirts are really forgiving…)

For shoes, I went with Born Issa Cork Wedges in Black.  Sandals, but solid ones.  They appear to be just about gone, but grab them if you can find them; super comfortable and easy to walk in.

As far as the tops go, this first picture makes it hard to see, but that was where I went for texture.  The tank is from Kohls and is tiered (similar), so that even though the cardi over the top is the same color there is some interest in person.

The necklace is a natural stone-bead chain – nothing fancy, but very earthy.  I think some of the beads are even wood.  That lends the grounded feel and ties the colors in the skirt in.

Regardless, the idea for me was to make it feel like fall, and I think this outfit was successful in that respect.  Some wooden bangle bracelets would have been a nice touch.

    Living in Texas, I can so relate to wanting to wear all of these cute fall clothes but being confined to layering summer stuff. I love the tiered tank, very pretty!

    Love the tiered top – very sweet – and the wedges.

    Oooh, I do love the print of your skirt! Great idea with using the texture of your top for interest.
