October in Gingham

Fall layering, oh how I’ve missed you. Whoever says they like dressing for summer more than fall is seriously disturbed (#ellewoodsforever). When I got this tiered top over the summer, I was obviously excited to wear it on its own with jean cutoffs or white skinnies, but I also could not wait to style it for autumn.

To bring my gingham well into the cooler months, I paired it with my all-time favorite slouchy sweater of the season, some dark denim flares, and open toed booties. Since October has been so fickle in DC, an outfit like this is ideal for chilly mornings and sunny afternoons.

As for my accessories, I went with a pop of merlot (unfortunately not the wine) with my go-to fall hat, some oversized sunnies, my basket bag, and simple jewelry. Fall, can you please stay forever?

Lady in Yellow

So I’ve never been a big yellow wearer, but I could not say no to this happy little maxi dress. I love that it’s wrap-style (hellooo flattering!), and the fluttery sleeves are such a fun touch.

To accessorize, I went with my new favorite peep toe booties for fall (from none other than Amazon, what?!), my basket bag, and round sunnies. I topped off the look with a gold choker, ear crawlers, my favorite rings, an oxblood lip, and of course, a topknot.
