Hello October || Striped Top & Black Dress

Hello Hello

fall-fashion-layering-october
Hello October! Can’t believe it’s officially the start of the holidays season. (By that I mean, now until the end of the year, stores are filled with holiday-related things). I’m not complaining though. But aside from the holidays, it is October and that means fall fashion is on FULL FORCE!

For this outfit, I decided to layer up to help combat the cool fall weather. I styled this black dress over the striped top. I think the stripes give the look something extra. I also like 3/4 sleeves on the shirt. I went with these nude flats because I wasn’t planning on actually capturing this outfit but I decided to last minute. Nude flats go with everything anyways…right? READ MORE

Orange is the New || Black Booties & Turtleneck

Hello Hello,

fall-fashion-orange-dress
Orange is the new…..I don’t know. I just like the sound of that phrase. I have yet to watch the show “Orange is the New Black” though. I’ve heard great reviews, but I’m just really really bad at keeping up with shows. The only show I’ve been somewhat consistent on watching is Once Upon A Time.

Regardless of what TV show you enjoy watching, I can’t believe it’s already October! Maybe I should call this look “Orange in October.” Either way, I wanted to make this summer dress appropriate for fall, the weather is getting colder; the late nights and early mornings have been high 40’s or low 50’s and throughout the day it’s barely in the 70’s, so I layered it on top of a white turtleneck. I finished the look with my black booties.

Fall Colors in the City || Mustard Pants & Knit Cardigan

Hello Hello

looks-by-mc-fall-colors

I love fall colors. I was soaking up every last bit of summer, but now I’m ready for autumn. Something about all the dark hues of the rainbow against the golden leaves in the fall just makes life…full. I also like fall because of the fashion weeks. I share 3 ways I stay update-to-date during fashion week here.

But all that aside, I spent a quick weekend in the twin cities and we (the boyfriend and I) went on a downtown stroll. Okay, it was more like a quick downtown shoot. And yes, he took all the photos.

Even though this particular day wasn’t cold, it wasn’t warm. I opt for this dolmain cardigan for extra warmth, but wore a sleeveless chambray top in case the weather did warm up. I added the mustard pants for some fall color. I finished with the black loafers for comfort (heels are not always this girl’s best friend). READ MORE

Fall Classics || White Button-Up & Batik Skirt

Hello Hello,

looks-by-mc-fall-fashion

I love a white button-up top. I think it’s definitely a classic and a staple and an essential. Even though a white blouse is a year-round piece, it’s also a part of my fall classics.

I went with this batik skirt to keep the color minimal. I made this skirt and you can learn here! (It’s very simple, I promise). I finished with a pair of black heels and a statement necklace.

I also want to share with you 4 additional fall fashion pieces that are classics for me: READ MORE
