It may only be August, but I am definitely already thinking about fall fashion. Early fall is one of my favorite season’s for fashion because I love finding pieces that transition from summer to fall. This outfit is definitely an outfit that has you covered for early fall when you are craving fall style but it is still warm out.
The plaid skirt was a Nordstrom find that I jumped on as soon as I saw it. I have a green & navy plaid pencil skirt that I love, but I liked the a-line slightly ‘kilt-ish’ cut of this skirt. I initially thought it was a mini skirt but was pleasantly surprised to find that it is actually long enough to be worn to work. I decided to pair it with one of my new fall basics- this red ruffled long sleeve tee. I got this tee in two colors because it is enough of a basic to be worn with everything from a suit to basic jeans. The ruffle detail though keeps it from being boring!
These flats are go-to’s for me. They are really cheap (and come in multiple colors) – but be warned they definitely do not last. That, however, is why I like them. I will get a pair of nude, a pair of black, and a colored pair before every trip and just wear them until they fall apart. It means less to pack on the way home as I throw them out one by one as they fall apart. (I always have at least one good pair of shoes on me to wear home). As someone who is a bit of an over-shopper when traveling (… understatement of the year) it’s nice to free up space in my suitcase for the trip home!
