Good Call

Remember when I mentioned in a past post how this is a must fall staple? Yea, I wasn't kidding about that one. I snatched this cozy printed cardigan from Jeslin Salon and Boutique over the weekend and I'm head over heels for it...(Good call J). A cardigan can transform a look from casual to formal (throw over a LBD for sophistication). It all depends on the occasion and what type of mood you are in.

Calm

I should be put on "time-out" for the lack of posts lately. Since school and life typically bring chaos to a persons schedule, I decided to find that calm and regroup for my own sanity by writing fashion! With that being said, today's look is simple and right to the point. Foggy chilly weather calls for layering!

Layering with Plaid

Plaid is definitely a fun pattern I get excited to wear. Layering a plaid pattern can be complimentary to the new Autumn trends with whatever texture and fabrics you choose. A style tip when it comes to wearing different patterns is to stick to a maximum of two, otherwise you'll be screaming help without even knowing it. Check out some looks that I'm currently coveting.

4x4 Style: Dressing in Layers

I am completely stepping out of my comfort zone for this post. Because of my floral obsession and lack of ability to stray, I thought I'd tried and pull of a fun look by rocking a more edgier piece by sporting a leather jacket as my choice of autumn layer! I decided to keep it minimal with layering and show off the pretty details of the blouse. I added a beanie for more of a laid back look. As new as this is for me, I am really digging the edginess it brings, however, forever keeping my girly attributes in full affect.

Military Vest

Finally, I find a good ole rugged military vest to invest in (word play!!!). I've tried a couple of them but just couldn't seem to fine the "one." I found this vest at a local boutique store and love how the insides have adjustable ropes to accentuate the waist, which is what I was looking for. Pairing it with this dainty flower leggings brings the look from edgy to a girly cool outfit.

How to wear Leggings

Leggings

There is this misconception that leggings are not stylish enough. I have to disagree. A good pair of printed leggings can take an outfit from boring to fun. Wear your leggings with a cozy long sweater, a skirt, or a dress and instead of a basic black, go for a printed one. Top off the look with a good pair of booties, boots, or flats for a fall comfort ensemble.

Pretty in Green

Midi-Skirt
top: Ruche, necklace: Ruche, shoes: Ruche, skirt: Ruche

Not only do I love the color royal blue for fall, but also the color emerald green is on top of my list. This lush, vibrant color goes perfectly with a classic feminine ensemble such as this one. Now that I've tried the midi-skirt trend, I can't help but continue to search for more midi-skirts! The emerald green printed top and mustard skirt compliment each other very well. Add some neutral strappy heels for the finishing touches.

Fall Cardigans

Cardigans

The cold autumn breeze has made it to San Diego! Yesterday morning, I stepped out to get in my car and was caught off guard because of how chilly it was. I was excited but not ready to embrace the cold weather. With that being said, I think it's time to stock up on some good quality cardigans. Cardigans are my "go-to" fall outerwear when pairing jeans and booties. Whether they are oversized, printed, or distressed, fall cardigans are a staple one should invest in. Did I mention all of these are under $100?!
