Well, hello strangers. It’s been over a month since I last posted. Honestly, the only reason for my absence is that I’m a seventeen year old girl. I have school seven hours a day and cheer for two. By the time I make it outside each day, it’s already dark out. I’ve begun to plan things out a little better to make sure I can get a post or two up each week from now on.
Now, for this post. It was actually quite warm out for Illinois December, so I decided to go out jacket-less. I’m wearing one of the comfiest tops I own with my absolute favorite black jeans. Despite my traditional gold necklaces, I went for my high-top Converse with silver accents. I guess I figured entitling this post “mixing metals” would make that acceptable.
I’d say November is easily my favorite month of the year. The last leaves are hitting the ground, the weather is changing from cool to cold, and I gradually begin reach for the thickest coats in my closet. I recently put up a post about this jacket, so if you are looking for a nice little rant about my obsession with it check it out here. I paired it with a striped, cotton top and one of my favorite pairs of “mom” jeans. As I do most outfits, I completed this casual ensemble with my white Converse.
One of my favorite things about fall clothing is the texture. Recently I have loved the look of ribbed pieces. It is still texture, but it gives the usual cable-knit a break. I found this sweater while I was in Chicago, and I have already gotten so much wear out of it. I paired it with my staple black jeans that seem to go with every outfit. On my feet I wore my absolute favorite black chelsea boots. This outfit is definitely very simple, but it is one of my go-to’s for this season.
