What I Wore Wednesday

It's been a while since I've done a What I Wore Wednesday link-up with The Pleated Poppy. But now that fall's upon us, I'm breaking out the flats and sweaters and long-sleeve shirts and thought I'd share some of my outfits.

Do you have a fall fashion shopping list? I recently bought three plaid button-down shirts from Old Navy and a cute tan cardigan at Target, and I'm planning an excursion to the outlet mall in Cincinnati to check out the Banana Republic Outlet. I have plenty of fall tops, and nearly enough jeans (I'm still on a quest for a pair of white), but I'm having the damnedest time finding the perfect pair of boots!

The boots I have are a Hawaii purchase; I just bought some cheap-o ones from Payless since I knew they wouldn't be getting much wear there. But I wanted to splurge on some nice leather ones this year since -- if last February and March are any indication -- I'll be wearing them every day all winter long. Boots are ubiquitous nowadays, so I never thought it'd be that challenging to find a pair that meets my specifications. But the Great Boot Search continues... wish me luck!

P.S. Good grief, I just realized I'm wearing the same pair of jeans in all these pictures!

 It seems a shame to pack away all those cute summer tank tops, so I like to layer them under light sweaters in the early fall.
 Tank top: Kohl's
Sweater: Target
Jeans: 7 For All Mankind
Shoes: Clark's
Earrings: Boutiki gift shop in Hawaii

 This look is novel because my hair is in a ponytail! I hardly ever wear a ponytail outside of lounging around the house and walking the dog, but it is definitely time for a haircut and my hair and I were fighting with each other that day. I suppose it actually doesn't look half bad! And maybe with my curls pulled back, I won't get called "sweetie" and "young lady" and "kiddo" by random people all the time -- which annoys me to no end! (My husband maintains that my curly hair makes me look about 18 or 20... maybe someday that'll be a good thing, but right now I'd much rather just look 27!)

Top: Old Navy
Jeans: 7 For All Mankind

 Daddy said the word "treat"!
 Sweater: Old Navy
Jeans: 7 For All Mankind
Shoes: Clark's

I wore this outfit to the Wool Gathering festival this weekend. It's a celebration of fiber arts, with tons of vendors selling yarn, accessories and handmade goods. Plus Young's Dairy, where the festival is held annually, had tons of pumpkins and gourds for sale, so of course we left with some of those too!

Top: Old Navy (new purchase)
Jeans: (shocker!) 7 For All Mankind
Necklace: Palomaria on Etsy
Boots: Payless


  1. Oh the great boot search is so hard! I have a "wide shaft" which is just funny to say! Not many of the riding boots fit. Sad.

    But I do like a cute ballet flat! Yours are perfect for fall!

  2. Great fall outfits. Love the flats too.


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
