Ahhh, crisp air in the mornings, leaves crunching under foot, and pumpkins galore! Fall has officially begun here in Pittsburgh and I have been enjoying every minute it of it-- well every minute that I have free too enjoy it anyways, since I recently have been buried in college text books while studying for my midterms. However, I was thrilled that this morning I was able to break away from my studies for a little bit until this afternoon, and take a lovely morning stroll through Sewickley before meeting my mum for our weekly Sunday brunch.
Since it has been rainy the past couple days here in the 'Burgh, I was happy to wake up this morning to see that the sun was shining and that it was an absolutely gorgeous fall day. So, though I probably could have used the the extra hour and a half to work a bit more on my studies, I decided to take a little breather and head to town a little earlier and take a nice autumn morning walk before meeting my mother for brunch, and I have to say, this outfit choice was the perfect combination of comfortable and chic.
For my stroll, as well as our mother, daughter Sunday outing, I chose to pair a simple white blouse from my affiliate, Ann Taylor, along with this adorable pair of flared jeans (which I was thrilled to have found at Marshall's, I've been looking for a good pair of flares for ages!) by American Eagle, and completed this look with some plain white and gold Tommy Hilfiger sandals. And though I know the fashion rule "no white after Labor Day", my long time readers know that I feel that this is a rule that is most definitely meant to be broken!
The reason I say this is because a white blouse is such a kick-ass staple piece for fall, really I firmly believe (and have repeatedly said throughout the years) that every woman should have at least one in her fall wardrobe. "Why", you ask? Well firstly, because you can pair a white blouse with just about anything, whether it be with a cute fall skirt, dress slacks, layered with a sweater, or with jeans for a laid back look such as this one, there is just too much you can do with a white blouse to put it away for the season! Not to mention, there are ways you can dress up a basic white blouse to fit the season: For instance, as you can see in my outfit here, I chose to pair my blouse with some red drop earrings and a gorgeous red Kendra Scott necklace, which are perfect to reflect the colors of the season.
Another way to spruce up this look for fall, was to coordinate fall colors into my makeup palette, which was very easy to do thanks to my sponsor Influenster. (Full post coming soon!) Who provided me with bareMinerals liquid foundation, the awesome Maybelline City Mini's palette "Rooftop Bronze", and Kat Von D's "Bow N Arrow, Fawn Nude" lip liner. All of these darker, earthy tones are an absolutely perfect fit for fall.
And last but not least, I just have to mention the final staple piece to this casual fall outfit: my Hyde series watch by my affiliate and sponsor JORD. Though I can gush about this timepiece for days, the main reason I would like to highlight it is because currently JORD and I are hosting a GIVEAWAY where you can have a chance to win any watch from their Hyde, Frankie, or Frankie 35 series! The contest ends next Sunday so you still have plenty of time to enter, but to read all the rules and entry guidelines you can check out that info HERE.
