Falling into the New Season: How a Recent College Grad Transitions to Fall {Guest Post}

I’ll have to admit…fall is my favorite season, and the season in which I play around with my style the most. Believe it or not, I find joy in packing away all of my awesome tanks, dresses and shorts, and pulling out all of the stops with denim, leather, leggings and sweaters; and in saying goodbye to flip flops and hello to a cozy pair of oxfords or a funky pair of boots. This fall is my first since making the transition from college girl to big girl--which means taking some of my classic fall looks and making them a bit more grown up.

I’d like to share a few key items that help me fall into my favorite season.

Sweaters: I’m a sucker for a good sweater. I feel you can never go wrong with them, and due to the versatility of this piece of clothing, there is the “perfect sweater” out there for everyone. There is nothing like the feeling of being wrapped up in one big personal hug all day. Personally, because I am a smaller lady (standing at a wonderful 5’2) I love the look of over-sized sweaters on me. It’s always fun to dress them up with a pair of leggings, a skirt and tights, or to even keep it simple with a pair of jeans.

Leggings/Jeans: I’m all for being Comfy, Cute, and Cozy while dressing for fall. I live for a wonderful pair of leggings on a fall day for pretty much any occasion. The most exciting part about leggings to me is the way they offer the ability to dress up or down any outfit; they’re perfect with a sweater or a longer shirt. Jeans also offer versatility in my wardrobe. In the fall I always stick to a darker pair of denim (deep blue, or black) or a nice relaxed earth tone to celebrate the season.

Fancy Footwear: In my opinion I feel that oxfords are the perfect shoe to define fall fashion. Whether it’s a classic pair of flat ones or a flashy pair with a slight heel, I always find the perfect balance of comfort and classy. However on the cooler days and nights of the fall, I have never been steered in the wrong direction with a pair of sleek knee high boots. As with everything I’ve mentioned, what I love the most about both is their versatility!

Accessories: No outfit is complete without prime accessories, and neither am I. I like to go all out; I have to have earrings, necklaces, and bracelets (lots of them)! I find joy in picking out perfect themes whether its flowers, catchy sayings or bows, I live for a fancy piece of costume jewelry…and how can I forget: scarves!!

I’m all about having fun and being slightly over dressed for the moment. Whether I choose any of the above looks or re-create a look seen on my favorite celeb this season I’ll be sure to fall into my own updated style with ease.

What looks will you fall into and make your own this season?
