With fall not quite here yet, I tend to lean towards wearing light weight pants, as seen here, or gravitate towards wearing skirts. I usually find myself wearing knee-length skirts and skirts of darker shades. Recently, I came across this Free People skirt and immediately fell in love with the color and the fit. It’s easy to wear and style whether you choose to pair it with a pair of heels, or with a cute pair of boots (like these).

This fall, my closet seems to continue to fill with blush or wine colored clothing. This Free People skirt is among one of many fall neutrals that I have snagged from the stores so far. I chose to pair this skirt with a ruffle cashmere sweater, similar less expensive option here. I also mentioned in my last post that I have been leaning towards a lot of ruffle and bell sleeves. I think they add just the right amount of detail to an outfit without feeling too overwhelming. The ruffle can also eliminate the need for a statement necklace, or statement earrings. I find that I prefer to choose an accent piece of clothing that pair with a statement piece of jewelry. I typically lean towards more refine and delicate jewelry (if you’ve noticed from the simple pieces in most of my posts).
