Fall Back

Fall outfit--Frye boots

Classic fall

J.Crew Houndstooth Blazer

Fall outfit details
Blazer: J.Crew (on sale!) | Scarf: Nordstrom | Jeans: J Brand (the Mid-Rise Crop with its 27" inseam is perfect for no-alterations, ankle-length petite jeans) | Boots: Frye "Melissa Button" | Bag: Coach | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Bracelets: Banana Republic, Tiffany, Vintage | Watch: Michael Kors | Lips: NARS "Funny Face"

I pulled out my beloved Frye Melissa Button Boots (read my review here) for the first time since last spring over the weekend. Sean and I trekked over to one of our favorite breweries to sample their fall selection, and this outfit kept me comfortable and cozy for the long walk.

The J.Crew blazer I'm wearing was my first purchase of their Schoolboy style, and I really liked the proportions of it on my frame. This houndstooth wool is warm and on-trend, but I subsequently snagged a black, lightweight wool version during one of their 25%-off-full-price promotions, and I have been wearing it constantly for work over the last couple months. (For reference, I am wearing a 00P here, and it didn't require any alterations.)

Hope you are having a great week!

  1. Love the classy jacket and cute earthy brown boots! Lovely style!


  2. That blazer and scarf together are all kinds of amazing!

  3. Beautiful fall outfit. How did you tie your scarf like that?

    1. Thank you! It's a square-shaped scarf, and I first folded it in half diagonally, then put it on like you would a bandanna (triangle pointed down in front with ends behind you). I crossed the ends behind my neck then tied a simple knot under the triangle in front (like the kind you'd use to begin tying your shoes).

  4. I love the mix of patterns and the earthy tones!

  5. This outfit is so preppy and cute! Love how you mixed the patterns.
