Shear(ling) Genius

As we know by now, being almost the end of October, fall is in full force. That means everything is coated in pumpkin spice and that we’re just heading closer and closer to the holidays and the new year!

With all of the craziness going on, I finally had a chance to get my annual pumpkin patch trip in and took it as an opportunity to premiere a fall look. Albeit a bit dressy for the suburbs of Illinois, I  couldn’t help myself and decided to debut this shearling bomber that I recently found from Lacoste, via Macy’s.


I’m the last person on earth who needs another coat, much less a bomber, but this one was too good to leave. The shearling collar gave it an aviator vibe which I love. In order to feature the collar more, I decided to pair it with a brown turtleneck from Uniqlo.

My ASOS suede boots are another shade of this burnt brown and definitely are my new favorites for the season. To break it up, and not go with jeans, I  paired it with gray corduroys from Club Monaco. The result: perhaps one of my most fashion forward fall looks yet. Or maybe I’m just thinking that because I  looked so dressy for a pumpkin patch.

This fall I’m really trying to keep most of my looks 1-2 colors. Monochromatic moments usually look a little more stylish and in my opinion, put together. I’m excited to start dressing in more fall looks now that the we’re finally enjoying crisp air and the leaves changing.

Until the next look,

We’re practically a week into November which means we’re in fall’s peak season. All the leaves have changed, the jack-o-lanterns and cobwebs have been put away, and we’re snowballing into Thanksgiving!


It seems like one of the biggest trends this year is corduroy. I  used to think corduroy’s were a bit too traditional, revered for that pair of pants I’d have to wear around the holidays as a kid. Times have changed, as they often do, as it seems like corduroy is everywhere for both men and women. Instead of adding corduroy back into my closet in that old traditional sense, I’ve added it through this easy button up at Uniqlo. It’s such an accessible layering piece, as much of Uniqlo’s pieces are, that I  bought it in three different colors. If something works, buy multiple options. I’ve linked it here!

I  loved how this deeper red color pops against my new favorite pair of fall jeans! These were a major steal, at only $19 at the Urban Outfitters Surplus. The striped detail is a trend that carried over from last. Having denim details make even the most simple of outfits a little bit more unique. Places like Urban or even ASOS hare great options for similar styles.


Looking forward to embracing fall styles with the proper weather to match, especially in these new pieces. Be on the lookout for more fall looks coming soon!
