It’s that time of the year where I want to look like fall but most outfits in the store are designed for people that are not living in 90 degree heat! I have to use a lot of fall colors and lightweight layers where I live so I’m not passing out from heatstroke. Here are some outfits that fit just what I need!
Before I get started I always like to mention a few stats because I know that online shopping can be a TRICKY. I’m 5’5 wear a 10/M top but as a 36DD if something runs tight across the chest I will have to size up to a L.
In dresses I typically get a large for the chest room and a size 12 in pants. I can go between a petite and regular length based on the style but will note if I’m in a petite.
Fit Tips: Blazer tts, L called brown online // Cami tts, L // Leggings run small in waist, L
If you have been around for awhile you KNOW I love a blazer and when I saw this pretty rust color for $40 I immediately grabbed it. It’s such an easy business casual look but the leggings can be switched out for jeans and heels and cute date night outfit too!
This cami has been a long time favorite of mine from Nordstrom because it’s fully lined and has a good length for cardigans or blazers, plus it just went on sale!
The leggings honestly are not my favs. The waistband was tight and they are pretty long, I have them cuffed up in this picture.
Fit Tips: Blouse tts, L // Skirt tts, L // Pumps size up 1/2
This blouse I got a few weeks ago but I keep finding new ways to wear it! I love the print and the ruffle shoulders. If you want to wear it untucked it also has a good length you can see in my Evereve try-on post.
The skirt is from Amazon and the soft and stretchy fabric makes it easy to wear and very comfortable.
Fit Tips: Bodysuit tts in an XL and it’s too big, need L // Plaid tts, L // jeans tts, 12 // wedge sneakers size up 1/2
I’m loving all the burnt orange and rust colors this fall and although I’m not a huge “shacket” fan I do love a great classic plaid shirt. This one from Nordstrom was such a find but unfortunately this print went fast so grab one of the née color combos!
This bodysuit from Amazon was my 3rd attempt at this brand and in the high neck version I needed an XL. This strap style was way too big in the XL so stick true to size in this one.
Fit Tips: Cami tts, L // Caridgan size down if in-between, M // Jeans tts but don’t love them but my Good American were in the wash lol // Booties size up 1/2
I love how my husband keeps it REAL!! I asked him “Am I a hat girl?” He looked at me and said NOPE! I think part of the reason is it’s new but I also have small head and this was big on me so unfortunately I had to return. What I loved though was the super soft feel of this cardigan and this rust colored cami.
Fit Tips: Dress size down if in-between I’m in a L but have LOTS of room // Tall boots tts // booties tts
This Walmart new arrival was a huge hit when I posted my Fall Fashion Under $50 post and when it came in I was even more impressed. I love the flowy fit and this color is stunning!
With this dress I’m wearing these new styles from Victoria Emerson. The studded wrap is such a great addition to fall outfits and the camo works great with this dress!
Fit Tips: Blouse tts, 10 // Pants run small I’m in a 12S but they are tight but do have some stretch // pumps tts
I am so happy to be trying more options from White House Black Market because not only are their jeans good but all the items I’ve tried I’ve loved!! This blouse is perfect for date night with jeans but can easily be paired with pants for a great workwear outfit.
Fit Tips: Dress tts, 12 // Sandals size up 1/2
Another new arrival from White House Black Market and it’s one of those dresses that makes me feel like a million bucks! The full zipper is kinda sexy and the stretchy denim fabric makes it comfortable! This runs fitted so if you want a little more room size up.
I saw these sandals and instantly fell in love! They are so great for fall and fit well! They don’t slide off but size up 1/2 for best fit.
Fit Tips: Dress tts, L // Booties size up 1/2 // Boots tts
This Evereve new arrival was another instant favorite! The fabric is a lighter weight waffle and it’s shape is that perfect not too clingy a line. When I originally did some videos in this I had such wonderful compliments on the color.
Fit Tips: Size down if in-between in a L but it’s roomy
Fit Tips: Blouse tts, L // Pants tts, 12 but these are cuffed up run a bit long
Also a little bonus since I’ve had a few people ask about accessories! Here are some recent purchases that I”m loving! The “y’all” necklace was just so me and I’m planning on wearing the Kendra Scott rust earrings in our family photos.
