Preppy Fall

This might just be one of my favorite outfits of the year. This is honestly my favorite season clothing wise. Nothing is better than feeling totally neutral with the weather where you can wear a skirt with bare legs but still want a little sweater.

Tweed Skirt

I bought this skirt last year from J. Crew and I loved it then, and I love it still now. J. Crew Factory released a version this year. I think it’s pretty similar. Slightly different colors and I can’t tell if it has pockets or not, but if you’re going for this tweedy style, I can’t recommend it enough! Such a fun flirty skirt for fall…. and you can wear it with so many different tops

I styled it pretty simply since the skirt truly speaks for itself. I’ve been living in these shoes pretty much and they’re unfortunately sold out in almost every size. But the slingback style is definitely making an entrance this fall so you can find similar options everywhere from Old Navy (under $30!) to Everlane and Brooks Brothers.

Okay, also… J. Crew. Ugh why don’t they have basic white shirts or cable knits this fall!!! I’m hoping they’re going to release a new batch before winter. If they do… STOCK UP. Cable knits are surprisingly hard to find and, while I like the Ralph Lauren ones, I wish they didn’t have logos.

For cable knits you might try Lands End and their Drifter sweater, or L.L. Bean and their Double L sweater. They don’t seem to have white but they have ivory, and neither has a logo.


Love this outfit! I agree- I cannot find a cable knit sweater anywhere! I have been searching for a grey one and they are either super thin or only have the knit in the front!!



Doesn’t j.crew factory have the button down white shirts? I’m pretty sure my sister just grabbed a couple.


LL Bean has a bunch of cable knit options! I know they sometimes get a bad rep for being older, but some of my staples are from there and they last soooo long. I just usually go for the smaller sizes, and occasionally even petite sizes. Also, their signature line is more slim cut and modern. I even got a few pieces for after I have my baby in December… gotta plan ahead! Lol
