Fall is my favorite season for new clothes, and generally, my favorite outfits to style and share! As much as I love all of the easy summer dresses and slip-on sandals, there’s much more variety when it comes to styling outfits around this time of the year. It’s a lot easier to wear the same piece multiple ways when you can add layers.
My trench coat has been one of my favorite staples and go-to pieces of outerwear for over a decade. It has never gone out of style and is also a guaranteed way to make even the simplest of outfits look chic. I LOVE a comfortable outfit that requires very little thought but still looks put together (especially these days!). While a trench coat isn’t the warmest jacket, it’s a good option for fall weather and in-between seasons, particularly when layered over a cozy sweater or tartan dress with tights.
Going back to basics, a simple outfit I wear at least once a week during the fall is a sweater paired with jeans, flats, and a jacket. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Patagonia Puffer jackets, but they tend to make an outfit lean towards the casual side. So if I want to look a little dressier, I’ll add a trench coat to elevate my outfit.
Definitely way fewer moments to just sit and relax when there’s a two month old in the picture (nurse, nap, “play” and repeat), but it makes the moments alone that much more precious 🙏🏻😌 I’ve started to make it a moment to practice mindfulness… When I find myself actually alone, I take five deep breaths and list five things (big or small) that I’m grateful for that day as I exhale. Brings so much peace to the moment, even if it *only* lasts for those five breaths.
PS My sister left this sweatshirt behind and I stole it. Isn’t that what sisters are for 😜...
