With a high of 51 degrees today’s weather truly felt like fall. Not only are the leaves changing to golden hues but the air is cooling down and is refreshingly crisp. I always feel at peace on a nice fall day. Not lethargic. No cynicism. More often than not, I like to dress befitting the weather. Fall is the time to bring out the texture. Today I wore a caramel suede paisley print button up top from one of my many thrifting expeditions. I paired this oversized shirt with skinny black high waist pants from Amercian Apparel, an oversized Levis jean jacket, Doc Martens, a knitted black unity scarf and just a pop of contrasting color with the burgundy socks. I kept accessories to a minimum with a slim gold bracelet and necklace both from the thrift.
Unfortunately do not remember what thrift store I bought this shirt from or the cost. As you can tell I thrift excessively! I do remember the cost and location of the gold jewelry as for they are some of my most recent purchases. Both pieces are gold plated. The bracelet cost me $3. The necklace cost $2.60.
With such an oversized top I paired it with really tight bottoms to keep some of my womanly figure today. Although the top covers much of my bum my shapely legs are enough to give it a feminine touch. A suede top is not only stylish but functionally warm. With a high of 51 and wind gusts up to 16mph warmth is a necessity. In the cooler months I often wear loose tops and tighter bottoms. I’ve just came to this realization as I am typing. As to why I do it? Layers. If you have a loose sweater you can always put an undershirt and collared shirt under for style and warmth. Loose sweaters are stylish and functional for the cold months ahead.
