What I Wore This Week

As I continue to reluctantly embrace the changing weather, I’m still taking the opportunity to incorporate autumnal colors into the mix whenever possible. If you’re in the northeast, take a look around at the changing landscape – it’s giving cues as to which colors are great for this time of year.

This past Tuesday, on election day, I wore black – not necessarily a fall color, but a definite “power color.” I purchased this maxi dress from Express a while back. The material is a little on the thin side, so I layered a pair of leggings underneath and wore OTK leather and stretch fabric boots to make it more weather-appropriate. I topped it off with my faux patent leather and fur jacket from Asos.

Embracing Autumn

With the exception of the transition from winter to spring, I am generally not a fan of the changing seasons. I prefer the warmer weather and I'm always sad to see the summer bid us farewell, but I do enjoy the colors and textures of the fall.

Instead of taking a "glass half empty" approach I've been trying to focus on the benefits of autumn - the days when the temperatures are perfect, the beautiful colors of the trees, and the ability to add knits, leathers, suedes, furs, and tweeds into the mix. When appropriate, I'm still trying to keep my "year-round" pieces in the rotation and I'm trying to continue wearing my lighter-weight pieces by layering them.

For me, the fall and winter are all about statement outerwear, and over the knee boots with jeans and blazers, and other statement footwear. Here are a few of my recent fall outfits...

Gold leather moto jacket from Bebe (a few years old), statement loafers, and a statement clutch.
