– a period of unusually dry, warm weather occurring in late autumn.
A mild, warm autumn or an Indian summer is certainly what New England has been experiencing throughout September and the early part of October. I always felt that once Labor Day came the weather did a 180 and started to actually feel like fall. But lately temperatures have been abnormally high in the 70s and 80s. The days have felt like a continuation of the dog days of summer, especially in New York City. A lot of the time I am overheating by the time I get to the office. This is the season for a light jacket, scarves and layers but, instead, I find myself still wearing my summer pieces. But to celebrate the fall season I have been transitioning to some of my fall fashion with a bit of my summer fashion, like in today’s outfit. This is one of my go to outfits especially with the fickle temperatures because it features a mix of summer and autumn styles that are perfect for Indian summer weather.
I bought my Uniqlo pants I’m wearing in today’s post in the early summer months but it wasn’t until last month that I started to wear them. I usually never shop at Uniqlo, but one spontaneous visit left me impressed with these soft, comfortable cotton blend flared pants. They are extremely flared and in some angles it looks like a maxi skirt. These flared pants are my favorite thing to wear when I want to take a break from denim. Plus the blush color totally works for the fall season.
Since my pants are super flowy, I always like to balance out the proportion by wearing a form fitting top. Of course I chose my basic cream colored fitted tank from Zara. The cream and blush color makes for the perfect color combo.
Since it is fall and I can’t get away with just wearing a tank (nor do I want to) I have to layer and a denim jacket is the best fall layering piece. I chose to wear my trusted denim jacket from Forever 21. I have had this jacket for years and it never fails me, especially with the edgy studded detail on the shoulders.
I’ll bet I only get a few more wearings out of my Payless sandals but with flared pants like the ones I’m wearing, I like to wear an open toe shoe, especially with a little height. I’m sure once the weather gets colder I’ll start to wear booties with these pants but until then I’m going to show my toes a little bit more.
As for jewelry, I’m just wearing a short gold necklace that I picked up at a cute boutique when I was traveling in London. If you take a closer look it says dare to dream, which is such a beautiful sentiment and reminder for everyday.
Soon, the fallen leaves on the ground will turn to a slushy snowy mess. Soon, I’ll trade my sandals in for a pair of snow boots. And soon my jean jacket will be replaced with a heavy winter coat. But for now, it’s the season for dressing in layers for those brisk, chilly mornings and as the day goes on, shedding some layers for the hotter afternoon temperatures. Talk to you all in my next post!
