Style it Saturday – October 9, 2021

Welcome back to another edition of Style it Saturday, where I share a round up of outfits from the week before. This week I am sharing a mix of outfits for cooler fall temps, as well as some transitional outfits for areas still experiencing warmer temps…like mine! As always, you can click any of the photos featured to be taken directly to the commissionable links to find the exact pieces.

First up is an outfit that I think would be PERFECT for fall family pictures, Thanksgiving dinner, or any other fall event that calls for a gorgeous, timeless dress! I’m showing how simply changing the jacket choice will make this either casual or formal.

Just like the dress above, here I am wearing a shirt that shows how good brown and black can be together! This shirt is very affordable, and I found the tailoring of it to be very thoughtful and flattering. (Sometimes more affordable button up shirts can be “boxy” and unflattering, but not this one!) I am wearing the small. If you’re in between sizes, size down.

Okay, I just got these pieces in the mail yesterday, and I *love* this shirt! I can’t wait to share with you a picture of it on. It’s hard to tell here, but the neckline is v-neck, there is smocking under the bust line, and transitions to a peplum hem. Ladies, this creates a flattering waistline. No waist = not flattering. Even if you aren’t happy with what your waistline looks line, it is essential to create the illusion of one!

Below I wanted to show you how this olive green sweater can be an amazing neutral pieces in your fall wardrobe. Here are five different ways to style it! Dress it up, or dress it down, it’s a great pieces to layer with this fall.

I wanted to share this little black flutter dress with you! This is a 3 season piece – just add a jean jacket, sweater, or blazer to get the most wear out of it. I am wearing a size small, and could easily have gone up to a medium.

Okay, okay…so can you tell I’m a little obsessed with the brown/black combo this season? I am *in love* with this dress. It’s sophisticated, classy, and yet a little flirty if you ask me! As usual, I LOVE the attention to the seaming and tailoring. It makes all the difference in quality, well made pieces. (Notice around the shoulder and cuffs – to die for.)

Am I the only one completely over jeans with stretch?? Over.It. So I am on the quest for 100% cotton jeans to replace all my loosey-goosey ones with. Here’s what I’ve learned: when you purchase your normal size, you’re going to feel like they’re too small. But 100% cotton jeans mold to YOUR BODY. After wearing them in, your 100% cotton jeans will fit your body perfectly, even after washing. Here are some affordable pieces I found on Amazon. A couple of these are name brands, which you’ll find much more expensive elsewhere.

I admit it, I should’ve just titled this post “Brown and Black.” And ten years from now you’ll find me wearing the exact same pieces. Why? Because #1 They’re classic pieces that never go out of style. #2 They’re quality materials that don’t wear out.

That’s all for this week! See you next time!
