The cooler weather calls for layering. Which comes in especially handy for today’s outfit. Adding a layer or two allows you to stretch the season on your favorite lightweight pieces. I don’t know about you but I wasn’t ready to totally put away my summer wardrobe yet. I got this black shift dress a few years ago and just love how comfy and polished it is.
To add an even smoother vibe I chose this striped jacket. I am a big fan of this type of short jacket but don’t really know what to call it. If you know the proper name for this kind of jacket please let me know with a comment. Just because I’m a teacher doesn’t mean I don’t want to learn! 😉 It is a challenging piece to style because it can easily feel a bit too “mature” as in “you get a senior discount with that jacket” kind of look. I may move a little slower now but still don’t think I am ready for that yet. Lol! Please tell me what you think of this piece.
Recently I realized that I would rather to be timeless than trendy. That is why I have still not fully embraced the super hot 70’s Trend yet. Of course since I was learning to crawl, walk, talk and use chopsticks in that decade I probably have a pretty good excuse. But I do like a classic geometric pattern and love how the stripes on the jacket and the dress kind of echo off each other.
To lighten up the serious feeling I slipped on the edgy animal print booties for a fall ready look. Then my signature color splash with my red leather bag. Recently I’m tending to shy away from very dramatic lip colors and shoes. Somehow I’m feeling like less is more again. Lol. Last year I was bigtime into the orange red lip colors and very bold looks. But this year I toned it down a lot. I’m finding I really don’t like to be locked down on my fashion choices. It seems my style changes sometimes surprise even me! I guess I just don’t like to be too predictable; other than the always looking fabulous part that is!
