Easy Outfits | Early Fall Casual + Chic

Today’s easy outfit comes to you by popular demand.  I originally used this outfit to create a graphic for my Budgeting for Clothing post on Monday.  But I got almost as many questions about the pieces of the outfit as I did comments on the post.  So today I’m giving you guys all the deets.

It may still be too hot to wear it in your neck of the woods but be sure to pin it for later.  It’s a great casual chic outfit to wear in early fall and will transition easily with the addition of your favorite fall scarf for cooler days.

Clockwise from top left:

1.  Tortoise Stud Earrings – Aren’t these awesome?  The color is perfect for all of your fall outfits.

2.  Lightweight Crewneck Sweater – Lightweight crewnecks are perfect with skinny jeans, ankle pants and even skirts.  Check out this option and this one in lots of  great colors.

3.  Dark Wash Skinny Jeans – Every woman needs a great fitting pair.  These are my all-time favorite.

4.  Color Block Flats – These do doubly duty with tones of beige and black.

5.  Leopard Belt – Use it to cinch cardigans and sweaters at the waist or wear it with pants or jeans.

6.  Stila “Kitten” Eyeshadow – This iconic color is always in style.

  • This outfit is so lovely, simple but oh so chic. <3 Now that I'll be driving my three kids to three different schools starting very soon, it's the kind of outfit I'll be wearing pretty much everyday. :)) Love the neutral flats, and that cute leopard number to add some sass to the casualness. Very nicely styled. Have a lovely weekend Alison, XOXO, Elif

    Allison, Thanks, this outfit for fall is perfect! I love the color orange/spice to wear in the fall! I am looking forward to the fall challenge and can’t wait to start some budget shopping to be ready! Right now you know it’s way too hot in Texas for fall clothing, we may not even get to wear pants until October!!! I think there may be some short sleeve options and shorts that could pull us into fall in our hot zone in fall colors. We may want to give that a try!

    • This orange/spice color is one of my fall favorites as well, Kim! I can’t wait to wear it, but you are right…we’ve got about 6 weeks of summer left here in Texas.
