Three recent easy weekend outfits. The weather remains rather warm, though we are certainly headed into fall (my driveway has the fallen maples leaves to back this up). Still, I'm not quite ready to pull out the heavy stuff ;)
#1 (08.23) - Worn to a baseball game (last of the season for our little Single A team at home *sniffle*). It was warm, but I knew it would cool off quite a lot once the game got underway; plus we were sticking around for the fireworks show afterwards. Even with the blanket we brought I ended up too cold, go figure! To change things up, instead of rolling the jeans over the tops of the boots I turned up just the inside half of each hem. Quite like how it looks. Finished the look off with my weekend fringe bag, retro hair and peach sunnies, and better-than-nude peachy lip balm.
Newer: sweater, jeans, boots, bag
Older: hoops, watch
#2/3 (09.04) - Worn hanging out at home with hubby and sis for football. Wanted vaguely Team Sport colors so I went for the blues... only to find that all of my blue is for cold weather! How (and when exactly) did that happen!? Even though it was tooooo warm for the day, I pulled out this light aqua tunic sweater. For a more structured look I created a faux diagonal hem by semi-tucking the side where it splits, and then folding the hem over with a bit of tape at the end to hold it in place. [EDIT: what it normally looks like] Paired with cognac and light snakeskin d'orsay flats, which feels like the perfect "transition to fall" footwear (both color and shape). Accessorized with vintage chunky teal earrings, just for fun ^^
Newer: jeans, shoes
Older: sweater, earrings, watch
#4 (09.08) - Worn for a day off at home. I wasn't sure if we'd end up leaving the house or not so I thought I'd dust off and re-test one of my go-to fall weekend formulas: flannel + skinnies + boots. Add a semi-tuck with fun belt, simple hoops and nude peachy lip balm, easy-peasy done. Even though we ended up staying home I'm glad to know one of my favorite FFB formulas still feels good. And if we had ended up leaving the house, I'd have grabbed a black clutch to go along with this.
