Everyday Fall Style

Hey all! It’s been a busy few weeks and I can hardly believe we are jumping into November in just a few days! We have had one of the most beautiful autumn seasons that I can recall and I’ve been savoring how scenic all the views have been. Sometimes it feels as though we jump straight to winter here in PA, but that hasn’t been the case this time around.

Today I’m sharing some snaps of my everyday looks that I’ve been wearing the past few weeks. There have been a lot of new items that I’m loving and have a feeling you will too…

top / bottoms / sneakers

Some of you know that black is not what I gravitate towards but this set was too chic too pass up! It’s perfectly casual for a weekend at home but also looks adorable with a jacket over top as you run around town. I ended up in the S for the bottoms and XS for the top as it seems to run a bit large.

sweater / jeans (similar) / sneakers / hat (similar)

I had ordered this sweater last winter, so when it showed up at my door late summer it was quite a surprise! I now understand why this cashmere sweater is as popular as it is. Not only is it cozy, but the shape is exactly what I’d hoped for; a mock neck and a length that’s on the shorter side without being cropped. You may have seen me style it with my trousers here.

shirt / bodysuit / jeans (similar) / booties (similar)

Flannels are in full swing as well and I love throwing one on over a t-shirt or bodysuit (love this one).

top / pants / sneakers

If you need a comfortable on-the-go or travel pant, these are a must! I had originally ordered them in the ‘tan’ but when they arrived they were much more taupe (nearly purple) in person. They were pretty, but not what I was looking for. I ended up loving the fit so much that I decided to order them in black instead. They ran a touch big for me so I kept them in an XS instead of my typical S. The thermal top is a comfy Free People piece in one of my fav colors.

sweater / pants / loafers / sunglasses

I know there are some good dupes of this Free People sweater, but the quality of the OG is hard to beat. This is my third color in this tunic and I just adore it. It’s versatile, lady-like with it’s neckline and manges to be flattering even with its oversized fit. I do size down to an XS as it runs a bit large. The pull-on pants are a pair that I’ve have for a few years, but they brought them back again because they’re that good!

sweater / pants / loafers

I can’t get enough of these trousers lately. They’re a nice change to jeans and I can wear them with many of my sweaters with a little front tuck to define the waist. This sweater is from JCrew and I’m glad they brought this back again as well. It’s a geat, classic quarter zip that’s one of my go-to’s every year.


If you need a great rain jacket, you should check out this one. It has a large hood and a great length to it that will actually manage to keep you dry. If you are petite side however, this could overwhelm your frame, so keep that in mind.

sweater / leggings

This is another sweater that I’ve been gravitating towards this year. It’s very comfortable and comes in a couple of beautiful colorways.

My jacket / Audrey’s jacket / Madelyn’s jacket

My girls and I on one of out fall outings. I love my jacket which I grabbed on sale pre-season. It’s so warm and cozy but it does run large. If you are a true XS it may run too large for you. But otherwise I definitely recommend it!

Autumn Vibes

We are in the midst of autumn where, here in Pennsylvania, the trees fill the landscape with all of their bright and vibrant colors. It’s one of my favorite times of the year and I savor not only the colors but the crisp air before those freezing temps settle in (for far too long in my opinion!). My wardrobe has been adjusting to the change in seasons as well. I loved pairing this cashmere sweater with these new trousers over the weekend. The sweater is a classic wardrobe staple that can go from lounge to weekend to work depending on how you style it. These wide leg trousers are so comfortable with a perfect amount of stretch to them. They are available in short, regular and long lengths so you can get a fit that’s perfect for you. I’m 5’7″ in the regular length and you can see they fall just about floor length when I’m wearing flats. I completed this outfit with a pair or leopard flats that I’ve owned for years, but below you’ll find exact and similar pieces to help you pull off a similar look of your own.


Not to worry, I won’t be flooding you with holiday decor just yet! However, most of you know that all the good things sell out long before we are actually ready to deck our halls. Since Studio McGee just released their holiday collection, I wanted to share some of the pieces that caught my eye. I always appreciate their classic and neutral appeal. I do add reds and pinks to my own Christmas decor, but I always love the quality and overall style of their collections. See my picks below and shop their whole collection HERE.
