One of my favorite parts of autumn is accessorizing with different outerwear and I think the hero piece of Fall is the statement coat….although they don’t get the credit they deserve, they can really change the look of any outfit.
When you think of basic outfits you usually think of several key wardrobe pieces; a white tee shirt or classic button down, denim, or maybe even a comfortable track suit. But repeat after me…..basics do NOT have to be boring. Basics are buildable pieces that create a foundation for your outfit, or if styled correctly, can create an entire outfit on their own.
Fall is typically a time for yummy lattes, pumpkin carving, chunky knits, and fun layers. And with September right around the corner, it’s time to start prepping your fall wardrobe. But don’t throw all your fun summer clothes in storage just yet. Most summer pieces can easily transition into fall pieces with the help of some smart layering.
A few weeks back I took a much-needed mini-vacation to Saratoga Springs in Upstate New York. We decided to spend the afternoon in the Canfield Casino and Congress Park, a 17-acre historical national landmark full of lush gardens, breathtaking architecture, and beautiful art. I kept it casual and comfortable for my stroll through the historical site. I paired a white peplum top (which I’ve decided can also work as a jacket when turned backward and left unzipped) and a pair of pajama-style pants. The top, pants, shoes, and beaded purse are all from my go-to brand, Alice + Olivia.
