I enjoy the process of putting together an outfit, finding versatile pieces to add to my closet, and hopefully help you figure out what to wear every now and then. I kicked off a Fall Style Guide a few months ago but to be completely honest I lost all steam in that project almost immediately.
I’m not a capsule wardrobe kind of person. I am also not someone who enjoys the challenge of trying to come up with as many different outfits as possible using the same few items.
I learned that I’d rather repeat an outfit I felt comfortable in more than once, instead of mixing and matching items that didn’t feel authentic to what I would actually wear.
So I’m going to pivot a bit and share a few of my favorite pieces, outfits, and accessories for the upcoming month.
For November I’m focusing on sweaters, pointed-toe footwear, dark denim, and floral dresses. The colors I’m drawn to are purples, camel, grey, and black. I don’t know if you’ve started wearing turtlenecks again but I’m thrilled that they made a comeback this year. I have a tissue-thin black one that I’ve worn a handful of times already, and added a thicker cream one to the mix more recently.
I’ve also been drawn to mock neck or ruffled collar tops. They feel a little fancier than usual but can still be a versatile addition to your wardrobe. Pair it with paperbag waist pants and pumps for an office look, or just throw on a blouse with jeans and booties for a more casual look.
As far as denim goes, I’ve been drawn to a darker wash for the colder months. I love Madewell denim, as you well know by now, but I’ve also seen some great dark wash denim at J.Crew.
I’ve been on the hunt for cotton sweaters and it’s surprisingly a little harder than I thought! I love the look and fit of the Everlane cashmere crew neck sweater but it’s too itchy for me to wear! I’ve found a few beautiful non-itchy sweaters at Old Navy, Target, and J.Crew Factory.
I’ve been wearing my Laney pumps SO much this fall. They are so comfortable and go with anything. Beyond those, I’m likely to slip on my Vince shoes or a grey ankle boot with nearly any outfit!
Finally, I’ve added two floral dresses with sleeves to my wardrobe this season. I *love* a dress with sleeves because it is a one-piece outfit. No need to mess with what jacket or sweater goes with the dress, or possibly cramming short or ruffled sleeves into a jacket.
So these are my picks for the month of November. As always, I’ll share some of my favorite outfits on Instagram or Instagram Stories to be sure to follow along over there!
