fall outfits you can create with items you already have
This won’t be a surprise to anyone, but I love reading blogs! Some of my favorites are what I consider everyday fashion blogs. I’m not talking high fashion blogs featuring items you see Gigi strutting down the runway in; I’m talking about blogs that show outfits I would actually wear! If you’re a blog lover like me, then you have noticed that fall outfits are starting to pop up!
I love the styles, but unfortunately, since I’m a newlywed, I can’t always afford to buy the exact items I want. When I’m looking through blogs, daydreaming about clothes, I always find myself thinking, “how can I recreate this look with clothing items I already have?” And THAT is how the idea for this blog post was born.
Fall outfits have always been some of my favorites – I love dark colors, boots, and cuddling up in scarves and cardigans. I got these olive pants from Marshalls about a month or so ago and I’m totally obsessed with them! They’re such a nice addition to my wardrobe that consists of way too many jeans. My plaid shirt is from Marshalls too! It’s another fall favorite of mine – you can wear it with SO many different bottoms – jeans, black pants, skirts, your possibilities are endless!!
If you have pants in a fallish color (olive, mustard, burgundy, navy, etc.) you can totally rock this same outfit! All you need is a shirt with some sort of pattern – I just happen to be a fan of plaid, but stripes, floral, or polka dots do the trick too!
Can we talk about this top?! You might call it burgundy, but I call it maroon (gig’em, Aggies!). I got it from Loft last year when they were having a huge sale. Since it’s lace, I wear a black cami under it. I love pairing it with my black skinnies from White House Black Market and my black Michael Kors pumps that I got from Trunk Club! It’s a go-to look for when I know I’m going to happy hour after work!
Black skinnies, comfy pumps, and a top that makes you feel confident is all you need to pull a similar fall outfit together! …and don’t forget some fun earrings!
We all have one – a black dress that we slip on when we can’t find anything else to wear. Mine is from Em & Lee, a boutique owned by Willa Boutique. I picked up this staple last December when I was desperate for an outfit to wear to the annual Christmas lunch my family has. The thing I love so much about this dress is that I can wear it all year long. For the cooler months, I love it with a big scarf or a fun jacket. And, of course, booties are a must! The ones in this picture are from TJ Maxx! If you can’t tell, I’m always a fan of a good deal!!!
All you need to recreate a fall outfit like this is a simple dress that’s easy to layer with. Next, grab a colorful scarf or statement jacket to throw on top of it! Bada-bing-bada-boom!
Last but not least, one of my favorite, most comfy fall outfits – jeans, boots, and a cozy cardigan! If I could wear this outfit every day of fall, I would! My mom gave me these BCBG boots for Christmas last year! I couldn’t wait for October so I could feel justified enough to start wearing them again! My skinny Joe’s jeans have been a favorite of mine for as long as I can remember! I picked them up at the outlet store a few years ago and have never looked back! To be honest, I have no idea where my cardigan is from! But I love, love, love it! My closet wouldn’t be the same without it!
I know for a fact you have all of the pieces in your closet already – now go put them on, and rock it!!
HUGE thanks to my mom and Bailey (and Guppy) for helping me put this post together!!! We had so much fun! Believe me when I say, they truly are the best!!
Lots of love – ked
