Fall outfits 36-40

December 6, 2017

I took a few photos for this week in my parents’ burb-y backyard in northern California, which has just had a major leaf dump, so these feel very fall.  The festivities continued this week with Thanksgiving with family, so elastic-waist pants were in order.

I essentially wore this outfit to Thanksgiving, but with the sweater worn as a pullover crew and some bright lipstick.  It was super easy, comfy, somewhat dressed up, but very food-baby friendly.  I’m enjoying these ponte pants for occasions like this without feeling like I have to force them for everyday.

I’m wondering if the proportions of this outfit are a little weird.  The cropped sweater is super flattering and makes my legs look super long with these pants, but does it make the jacket look huge?  The jacket is huge, to be honest, and that’s one of the things I was drawn to about it.  I haven’t had much chance to wear this jacket yet this season, but when I do, it feel like crawling into a big chunky blanket.  I’m digging the tonal quality of these two different camel shades against each other.

When I first got this sweater, I knew I wanted to try full-tucking it in my Clyde pants, which are nice and sturdy and baggy and disguise the bulk of the sweater pretty well.  This is such a cozy silhouette, with oversized on top and bottom, and I imagine it’ll be a sort of uniform for me for the colder months ahead.  I brightened it up with a scarf in my favorite accent hue.  I let my hair be sort of wild this week, and I’m pretty into that unbrushed texture.

Returning to work after Thanksgiving was not easy, but I’m glad I could literally grab a couple random pieces of clothing and make a suitable outfit.  You can tell my pants are a little snug after the holiday weekend!  I’m happy to be reunited with this old standby sweater after neglecting it for my new Vetta one for so many weeks.  While I debated the Vetta purchase heavily because I already had this cardigan, it is nice to have something slightly different to mix it up, especially when they’re both neutral.

Okay, I’m sorry about this goofy pose, but for the life of me, I could not get a photo with my eyes open.  It was a kind of bright day, and everything is harder with my glasses on!  Anyway, this is another “basic” outfit, barely switching it up from the day before, and I’m not sorry about it.  Sometimes it’s nice to be easy, and my love for slip-on shoes prevails in every season.  I’m drawn to this earthy green sweatshirt a lot lately, both for its softness and color.  I remember reading that Elise of Pennyweight and Goodwin does earth tones as her way of incorporating color, and that has stuck with me as super appealing.

    Great outfits, as usual! I don’t think the cropped sweater makes the jacket look oversized in a bad way. More in a cozy way. BTW, I love the trouser-y look of the Clyde pants on you and was wondering, are they the old cotton canvas? And if so did you go true to size or size down?

      Thanks! I love a cozy vibe, so that’s good to hear. My Clydes are a few seasons old, when they were a bit baggier fit, and yes they are cotton canvas. I’m wearing them in Medium, and although I think a Small could easily fit me (and be a bit more butt-friendly), I like the oversized fit. For reference, I’m 5’4″ and about 130 lbs. Hope that helps!
