Some outfits from before I went out of town! It was just starting to cool down a bit, so I got some sweaters and outerwear in, and I was so excited. We even had a bit of rain!
This was my La Croix-matching outfit. I feel like it looks a little bright here, but I’m hoping it was more low-key in person. This sweater works with a front-tuck, but is sort of awkward length with these pants, so it didn’t work out as well as I’d hoped. And now I’m back to wondering if I should keep these pants long…it seems like that’s what’s trendy right now? Can I pull this off? Maybe the trick is shoes that reveal more of the foot.
I wore this to a casual rooftop birthday gathering, and I was thrilled to re-discover my lost Ruby Woo in a jacket pocket. Sometimes a little daytime lipstick makes something really feel festive. I’ve been re-wearing this basic outfit over and over, but at least I’m mixing it up with some beauty details. Been liking a middle part occasionally.

Finally! It was cool enough to wear my leather jacket. This was actually a rainy morning, and I nearly grabbed an umbrella for the walk from my car to work. I wasn’t sure about mixing white jeans with black leather, but the tan bag breaks it up nicely and makes it less severe.
I grabbed these shoes because it was a yoga morning, so anything slip-on is perfect, but I didn’t even realize that I haven’t officially included them in my fall capsule. I guess I’m getting more lax about my separate storage for “off-season” items, but oh well. This outfit is very easy, very soft, and very me.

Now THIS is what I imagined wearing when I made my optimistic fall capsule: a crisp, professorly, 70s look. I’m praying the weather stays reasonable when I return from Paris, so I can keep things like this blazer and these boots in rotation. Excuse my Dutch angle here–had an issue with my tripod. 🙂
