Easy Fall Outfit




Yesterday was cold.  Well cold-ish but enough that I got to wear my herringbone jacket.  And it's going to be chilly all week so it looks like summer is finally over.



I've had this jacket for about a decade now and it's still a favorite.  A black t-shirt and wranglers complete my look.  So easy and simple even I can do it.  What's your easiest, simple look?  x

  1. So love this look! You don't have to wear skin-tight clothing to reveal an attractive female form! It looks comfortable, chic, and the colors are classic!
    Also appreciate the frequency of your posting! Thank you for this ongoing girlfriend-conversation of interesting topics. Yes, even to what you wore!! :D

  3. I don't know if you've addressed this in a previous post, but how do you keep your woolen items from being damaged by moths? Thanks.

    1. i have written a post or 2 on that subject. i would google it bc there is a ton of info out there. this is what i do and it seems to be working. i was storing some cashmere pieces for too long i think. i just wasn't wearing them and when i took them out during a declutter they had moth holes in them. i followed a bunch of advice and so far no moths. first of all i don't store things for too long, i try and wear them. that way they are getting washed regularly. i use the laundress detergent made specifically for wool and cashmere sweaters. it's pricey but worth it so far. and a little goes a v long way. i also put a couple of lavender sachets in the drawer where they are stored. altho i've read that has no benefit whatsoever. so that's pretty much what i do. hope this helps. x

  6. My easiest, simple look is something that probably dates me...jeans, long-sleeve white t-shirt (I live in Michigan), and a cardigan sweater. Go for it every time. I love jackets, but at 5' 1" tall, I often feel like they overpower me. They look great on you. Love the outfit!

    1. kathy your outfit sounds so cozy. i'll wear ts and cardis for as long as i can. they are perfect for southern calif weather which seems to require 3 different outfits during the fall bc of temp changes. x

  7. I like that jacket and it goes so well with your jeans...it adds a chic touch.
    My easiest cool weather outfit to wear :
    denim jeans rolled up at the bottom, black Chelsea boots, a white short sleeved top and a grey cashmere sweater with a scarf wrapped around my neck for extra warmth.
    Stay cozy!

  10. Great look. My favorite outfit is very similar, and sometimes I like to wear distressed brown leather boots instead of black. I just purchased the jane blush, could you also share your lipstick brand and color?

  12. You know what i like the most...next to that bomb jacket that is....is your hair. I'm so proud and happy that your letting your natural color come through. I haven't the guts yet to let it go. But I'm getting closer. Thanks for letting it go.

  13. As always, you look fantastic.
    My favorite outfit is jeans, a black tee, black boots and a gray cardigan or jacket.

  14. You look lovely Janet. Did you recently cut your hair? I thought it was longer than above your shoulders? It looks nice.

  15. beautiful and classic outfit, Janet. In the transitional months of fall, I like to throw a cable knit pullover over a cotton summer dress and pair it with tights and boots. Makes me feel comfy and pulled together on the weekends and extends my summer wardrobe.

  16. Classic and beautiful, just like you.
    I’m loving your more frequent posts...little nuggets of goodness to encourage me through the week.
    I’ve never worn blazers - I always thought of them as too formal and stiff. I will reconsider now...

    1. mine was a gift from a friend. she bought it in england years ago. i did add a pretty banana republic cognac belt at the end of the post. i love the covered buckle, as a matter of fact alex gave me one just like that and it's one of my favorites. i'll be sure to wear it in an outfit soon x

  18. You look so cute and carefree and pulled-together!
    Shoot! I need to put a little thought into my look.
    Was wondering if you ever did a post on the high-rise skinny jeans that you had ordered. Did you fray the jeans in the post yourself or buy them already done? xo Kay
