Hello Autumn! While the calendar may say that fall is officially here, the weather hasn’t yet given up on the warm weather. I’m personally feeling all the feels for this Indian Summer that we’re experiencing. The funny part of all of this guys, I’m actually heading out to Iceland for a 7 day vacation; talk about a drastic shift in weather. For the next 24 hours, I’ll be enjoying the 70+ degree temperatures in the city.
While it may feel like summer temperature wise, my wardrobe has done a complete fall shift. I pulled out my favorite fall dresses and denim jackets, saying hello to fall style. This season I’ve fallen back in love with brown suede skirt. That’s right, this trend from the late 90’s is back and I forgot why I ever stopped wearing suede.
This past weekend, I paired this faux suede skirt I picked up at ASOS for under $50 with my favorite go-to top. Honestly guys, I’ve owned this J.Crew chambray shirt going on 10 years now and it’s still as soft as the day I bought it. Thankfully chambray is one of those items that never goes out of style, plus it’s 25% off at J.Crew right now!
While I may not be taking this outfit with me to Iceland (currently my wardrobe choices all revolve around fleece-lined pants), I can’t wait to wear it again once I get back. It’s the perfect apple-picking kind of look.
P.S. If anyone in the area knows of any great apple orchards not to far from Chicago – let me know!
