*On occasion I’m given a product from my favorite brands for editorial compensation. I’ve partnered up with Jord to review their product. All opinions are my own and I genuinely enjoy these products. Thanks for supporting a balancing peach and the brands that make it possible!
I sort of hate that I’m writing this post as it isn’t even Fall yet, but I would be lying if I said the Wyoming air already hasn’t turned a bit and there wasn’t a noticeable bite to it. So while I will be forever be a Summer girl I can at the very least appreciate all the textures and layers that fall brings.
A couple of you were sweet enough to suggest some more style based posts around here and while I’m completely flattered, I also am not a fashion blogger at all. (How on earth do fashion bloggers look so natural in front of the camera??) I think my style has always been decent enough, though my knowledge in fashion is minimal at best. Still I always try to listen to you as you are always sending the sweetest things my way. So here it is – my fall style lineup.
My accessories become a little bit non existent in Summer, but Fall allows me to get a bit more brave with the details of my outfits and essentially make them true staples to my wardrobe. Truth be told, this lovely Koa and grey watch from Jord* at first intimidated me. I’m a bit of a traditionalist with my watch taste and I always lean towards the classic gold detailing of women’s watches. Though I’m super pleased that the Jord unique wooden watch seems to go with even more of my wardrobe than I thought it ever would.
There is something about extra layers and textures that just looks so lovely underneath an ornate necklace. I’m happy to finally have excuses and occasions to reach for my lovely necklace to layer over lace tees and cozy up next to wool knit sweaters.
After essentially getting rid of my post college closet this year, some new footwear was high up on my list. I snagged hurache-esque flats after seeing my friend with the cutest ones while in Florida this year. The sandals seem to be the perfect flat as they transition beautifully from summer florals to my already fall-ish add ons. Whereas, my new ankle booties + skinny ankle pants have become my basis for any cute laid back outfit.
I actually grabbed a khaki A line skirt from Loft early last this year and haven’t stopped working it into my daily wardrobe since then. It doesn’t just work in multiple seasons, but also from the weekends to work – something my college closet didn’t offer me. So needless to say I’m scouting out more A-line’s to give me more options throughout the year.
Even though I could stay in Summer mode forever, the Fall layers and styles are slowly starting to grow on me. (If only it wasn’t followed by the bitter cold and endless snow days.)
With the excitement of the change of seasons + my Jord wooden watch, I’m glad I’m able to share that excitement with you today! Jord is celebrating the turn of the seasons with a chance to win some money for your own wooden timepiece.
