I’m here to share with you today another fall fashion staple. Fall is finally here. The weather is getting colder and my car is frosting up in the morning. The latter is not so great, but I get to dress in layers and wear my favorite combination: plaid, leather, and studs! For me, fall is the time to pile on those darker colors. (Fall is just an excuse for that. I wear dark colors year round, but that’s a story for another day.)
Well, that was quite a ramble. Let’s get to the outfit, shall we?
Starting with the shoes, these sandals are amazing! I have not broken them in quite yet, but they are still one of my favorite pairs of shoes. But sadly, it’s beginning to get too cold outside to wear sandals!
These sandals are from BCBGeneration. And I love the gold buckle and stud detailing on the shoe. The heel is not too high and the shoes are quite comfortable. This leather and stud shoe is the perfect edgy piece to any outfit!
I’m also wearing an American Apparel T-shirt underneath my plaid button up for some added warmth. And I’m also wearing American Apparel Waffle knit leggings in black. These leggings are seriously amazing! They passed the dryer test! I’ve had so many pairs of leggings shrink from the dryer, but these survived! So, now these are my all time favorite black leggings!
The plaid button down I’m wearing is actually from the men’s department. I love this plaid button down because it’s long enough for me to pair with leggings! The plaid button down in from Izod. I got the button down last year at JcPenny.
Because the button down is from the men’s department, the fit is kind of boxy. So, I added a belt which I bought from Banana Republic about two years ago. The embroidery detail of the belt is amazing! I’m in love with this belt. I, seriously, wear this belt with everything!
To add to the leather accessories, I’m holding a vintage Yves Saint Laurent clutch! I absolutely love the simplicity of this clutch! My mother gave me this clutch a year or two ago and I immediately fell in love with it! This clutch is always the first thing I pack when I travel! It comes with a strap, that snaps on, so you can wear it as a shoulder bag too!
And the black cardigan I’m wearing is so warm and comfy! It has a great ribbing detailing throughout the sweater! It’s my winter essential! I got this cardigan three years ago at Target and I’m still loving it! I love the draping detail of the cardigan and it’s just so easy to throw on in the morning!
You can never forget about accessories! I’ve really been in to layering necklaces lately. And I’ve found out that the best way to layer necklaces is to layer them with other necklaces of the same color.
And these two silver necklaces are some of my favorites this season. I love the silver chain necklace because it pretty much goes with everything. The heavy chain detail is very popular this fall season. And I’ve been in love with raw crystal necklaces and rings. This quartz piece was from my fall sale haul
! The raw crystal just looks so much cooler than a smooth polished stone, at least for me. The fact that every one of these necklaces are unique, makes them just that much more special. The nooks and crannies of the quartz give the necklace a lot of character. And did I mention it looks cool?
Well, I hope you like my outfit! And I would love to hear some of the ways you guys have fallen in love with the plaid trend and the edgy accessories! Wow, that was a long post! Sorry, about that, I just can’t seem to shut up. I need to learn to put my foot in my mouth or in this case my fist in my mouth cause I’m typing…any who…thank you so much for visiting my blog and I hope you guys have a wonderful day. And I’ll talk to you guys again soon! Bye!
