Faking Fall :: Layers + Legs

All this week, I'm doing "transitional" outfits. It's still mid to high 80's here most days, so we have to hold out on the full fall garb. There's no reason that you can't "fake" fall though, with the right colors, combinations, and pieces. Today's study: Layers + Legs. The idea is that you can layer up on top with a light long-sleeved option, but stay cool by letting your legs hang out.

So what makes it fall-ish? Stick to pieces in more muted, fall-like tones (olive, burgundy, mustard, etc) and add booties or suede pumps instead of sandals. I even fall-ified a LWD by throwing this jacket over the top. How many times can I say fall in this post? Fall. Fall. Fall. That many, apparently.

Jacket, JustFab (exact).
Dress, ASOS (exact, on sale! $13!).
Booties, ShoeMint (similar from Macy's).
Bag, Alexander Wang.
Necklaces, BaubleBar & c/o Our World Boutique.
Watch, c/o JORD (exact).

And here are a couple of other Layers + Legs options from my archives!

This week, we'll also explore other "Faking Fall" ideas including scarves, vests, and boots! Linking up with Walking in Memphis in High Heels for Trend Spin today.
