I recently watched You’ve Got Mail with a dear friend of mine. And it brought up all of the nostalgic feelings of Fall, my visits to New York, 90’s Fashion, and don’t even get me started on the soundtrack. It’s a desert island movie for me without a doubt, and each year something different pops for me, a new delight if you will. This time being how Meg Ryan addresses Tom Hanks in their chat room.
She says, “I pretend that we’re the oldest and dearest friends as opposed to what we actually are, people who don’t know each other’s names.”
And I thought that’s how I feel about my blog, a place where I talk to my oldest and dearest of friends. I know there are degrees of separation between us, but I am so thankful for you all, glad you are here, and hope you feel encouraged to show yourself love and care through a little ounce of style in this place.
With that shall we talk fashion things?
It’s still getting pretty warm here during the day (a repetitive theme I know I’ve mentioned many times), but I think it’s important to take note of the weather wherever you live. For me, it gets me more in touch with a wardrobe that I can actually love and wear for much longer.
There will be a time when I transition more of my wardrobe to true Fall clothing, probably late October or early November, but for now, I am enjoying styling my summer pieces in different ways to extend their life, and this outfit today is a perfect example of that.
The Formula: Denim Shirt Jacket + Athletic Shorts + Cropped tank + Birkenstocks + Statement bag
This outfit works so well because the base of it is a summer outfit, but adding the denim pop over gives it a Fall feel and adds some versatility to my outfit for a cooler morning or evening with the ability to take it off during the day if it’s getting too hot.
On the note of quality basics – I’ve had both the shorts and top for many years and have found that a minimal unbranded pair of athletic shorts, and cropped black tank top are incredibly versatile for me.
They are both pieces that work for me almost year-round where I live.
This outfit formula works hard for me in this season and it’s so easy to just slip on a pair of pants with this exact same outfit once the temperatures drop into the 70’s.
