This year I’m going to do holiday gift guides, but for every type of person in your life. From your friend who never stops talking about food to your Dad who is always up to date on the latest technologies (surely not my Dad! Sorry Dad).

It’s all about the leather and black in outfits 17+18…what else is new? Layers are making another comeback in these outfits because lets get real, if you can wear multiple items at once and still look sweet, then why not, amiright?

THE 15 PIECES ARE: jacket, cardigan, tank, lace-up shirt, flannel, turtleneck, tee, skirt, joggers, leather leggings, black jeans, baggy/ripped jeans, adidas, boots, purse. The necklace, sunnies and scarf are accessories you can add to any outfit.

 Outfit 17 had a lot of layers, again, a necessity for the fall weather. I used my scarf kind of as my jacket, wrapped around my shoulders. I added the flannel around the waste for a sporty look.

Outfit 18 kind of had the same vibe, but I actually wore my flannel and added a leather jacket. I think it looks cool how the shirt is really long, the flannel is a bit shorter and then the jacket is a lot shorter. Wearing two items with leather is okay here because it’s broken up by the shirts.

More outfits!! I’m finally styling the leather leggings, two different ways today. Leather leggings can be dressed up or down so they’re a great piece to pack.

Outfit 11 was a mix of dressing up/down, the silver necklace and chiffon tank dressed it up, while the oversized cardigan dressed it down. Adding another jacket over top is a way to wear this outfit for the colder months. This outfit includes the bag, cardigan, tank, leggings, boots and sunglasses.

Outfit 12 included a new hat that I bought so of course, it’s optional. I added the oversized tee, leather jacket and threw on my scarf and hat. Wearing two different tones of grey looked cool with the all black outfit. Definitely going to be wearing this scarf more often because it’s getting colder and colder.

outfits 9+10 | 15 pieces.. 20 ways

The easiest way to make a lot of outfits from a limited amount of pieces is to layer. Layering is also key when it comes to the cold weather. Speaking of cold weather, dannnnnng, it has been getting colder and colder. I needed to get the outfits with the skirt done because soon enough, everything will be covered by my huge winter parka.

Outfit 9 had a sort of preppy vibe and I was unsure of wearing a leather jacket with a leather skirt but then I thought “there can never be enough leather” (faux, that is). I like how the plaid goes with the three Adidas stripes, pulls the outfit together. Of course I had to tuck the flannel in and wear socks that show out of my sneakers.

Outfit 10 was super comfy, layering the flannel under the cowl-neck sweater. Layering a button down shirt under a sweater is a cool way to add dimension to an outfit and keep warm. I love the way oversized sweaters look paired with an a-line skirt for Fall.

Outfits 1 + 2 are all about simplicity, wearing the basics but adding a cool necklace or layering up. One of my all time fav basics are black skinnies, they can be worn so many ways it’s insane. Outfit numero uno consisted of the black jeans, tank, jacket, bag and booties. I added a necklace to pull the eye away from all the black in the outfit. This outfit would be great for grabbing a bite after class or work.

Outfit number two consisted of the black jeans, flannel, cardigan, bag and booties. The cardigan is really long and oversized so it actually keeps you warm (for now, that is). Here we go again with tucking my shirt in, I can’t help myself; I only tucked one part in so that not every top I was wearing was flowing in the same way. I think it adds some dimension to an outfit. This outfit is really comfy, so definitely going to be wearing this to class or while out and about doing errands. DSC01013

FALL in an outfit

I feel like I was the most fall one could be in this outfit, minus the fact I wasn’t carrying a pumpkin spiced latte. The colours of my scarcho (scarf+poncho) mixed with the blue denim just felt right. TBH, I don’t wear this scarcho that much because it’s hard to layer over top of a jacket, but if the weather is being nice then it’s definitely wearable. However, I do sometimes wear it as a scarf and bundle it around my neck. Hope you get some inspiration for your fall outfits!

I started out with a braid in my hair because I felt the look was very ‘equestrian’ and then for some pictures I looked like I had a pixie cut so had to let the mane loose. Ya’ll know I love tucking in shirts so adding a belt with my high-waisted jeans added to the ‘equestrian’ vibes. I’m using air quotes because that’s just what I think of but who really knows because I know nothing about horse riding gear. DSC00975 DSC00960 DSC00925 DSC00986 DSC00939
