Boho Fall

This happens every year. I rush into the season of fall; in fact, I rush every season. I just want to layer and wear scarves and sweaters and booties until I actually have to and then I’ll want to wear shorts and pretty skirts without tights. Fickle, I think, is the word I’m looking for.

I have learned though that it is possible to dress for a season without it actually being that season’s expected temperatures. For example, using color instead of layers. Autumn hues are easy to come by this time of year and don’t require a lot of layering. I picked up this pair of Genetic Denim wine (merlot, if we are being specific) colored jeans at Nordstrom and love them so much that I might marry them. They are so soft, they don’t even feel like jeans. I wasn’t even looking for colored denim at the time, in fact I’ve been on the fence with color denim this fall but this color sold me. It’s a deep enough shade of burgundy that it blends perfectly with my the other autumn shades I have hanging in my closet.

Another way to hack fall styles is to layer lightly. Take a lightweight jacket (this blazer tho), a loose cotton tank and you’ve got yourself layers without being an overheated mess. Put a hat on it and all of a sudden, you’re looking like autumn. Even if the weather decides to cooperate with your outfit or not.

  27. Ohh I have a similar shade of jeans and I can't wait to break them out now that it's Fall! I'm totally in love with that blazer though! I'm really loving the "moody florals" look for Fall and I love how this is unstructured enough but more so then a kimono!

    I think all of us with a bit of an "obsession" for fashion tend to have this problem. I know I transitioned my closet long ago and I have friends still wearing sandals. Guaranteed in like, a month, I'll be ready for something new. Again.

    I prefer fashionably ahead of the curve over fickle though 🙂
