And then it was December... I can't believe that the holidays are officially in full swing. Here's to hoping that the days don't fly by too fast (especially since I have yet to decorate my miniature Christmas tree, bake sugar cookies or complete any holiday crafts). Another thing that I've been super pumped about: These unseasonably warm temps! While the tights have finally come out to play, I haven't had to pull out the boots and mittens just yet — and I'm not complaining one bit! Before Old Man Winter shows up for real (mark your calendars for Dec. 22), I have one more fall-esque #OOTD to share. These snapshots were taken a few weeks ago on what I consider to be the perfect fall day.
For a minimalist + casual look, I teamed up a plaid Equipment button-down with my favorite Industry Standard jeans. Luckily, it was warm enough outside that I was able to get away with just a lightweight cardigan that I snagged from Club Monaco a few years back. I finished off my easy-going daytime look with some black d'Orsay flats from J.Crew (which have been on repeat lately). Side note: I also loved this color palette. The peachy pinks from my shirt offset my gray cardigan and ink blue jeans perfectly.
In case you were wondering, the inspiration for this outfit came from the book, A Denim Story: Inspirations from Bellbottoms to Boyfriends by Emily Current, Meritt Elliott and Hilary Walsh. (Which I totally recommend investing in if you consider yourself to be a denim connoisseur.) One of the quotes from the book especially hit home for me: "Every pair of jeans has a story and tells a story." Naturally, I had to wear my go-to Industry Standard jeans... it only seemed fitting.
I've put together a few #winning outfit combinations below, so that you can get the look:
