I hope you didn’t pack away your white jeans with the end of summer, because today I have a few tips on how to wear white jeans in fall.   One of my favorite ways to wear them is by pairing them with other neutrals like cream, black, or gray.   You can also pair them with knits like oversized sweaters or long cardigans.  Last, add a pop of color with a fall jewel tone.  You could also pair this look with black heels or black riding boots too.

I found this sweater when I was picking out my plaid from last week’s post.  Short sleeve sweaters are perfect for Texas fall and winter.   I mean it’s mid-October and still 90 out in the afternoon.  I also prefer the cowl neck to a turtle neck too.  It’s just more comfortable to me, especially if it is warm out.  The neutral color palette means I can wear this with not only my white jeans, but also my dark teal and maroon ones too.  It is very oversized.  I am wearing the XS/S size.

Also, I linked the only place I have found my booties on sale.  They have been going in and out of stock, so I am also sharing a very similar pair by the same shoe guy.

I hope ya’ll are having a great week so far, and thanks for stopping by today!

I am sharing the coziest of all fall and winter fashion trends today – the blanket poncho!  I am someone who is always cold.  When our temps dip below 70,  I start pulling out the sweaters and boots.  I love blanket ponchos because you can easily wrap yourself up in them to stay cozy and warm, BUT the current styles also keep you looking super fashionable.  If you don’t like the bulky look of some ponchos, try using a belt to cinch the waist and give you shape.

Blanket ponchos are also a must have for travel.  They can easily double as  a blanket or pillow on a plane or in a car.  Plus, they easily make a plain tee and leggings look super chic.

Can you believe this poncho is vintage?  When I found it, I seriously thought it was misplaced.  It looks like something you would find in stores today.  Every time I find a vintage piece still so relevant to today’s style and trends, it makes me want to never throw anything out! I’m going to need an extra closet now. 😉

If you are ready to jump on this trend, I linked a few current ponchos that I’m loving for you below.  Ya’ll have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Now this is the perfect top for a warm fall and not so cold winter!  This faux layered sweater consists of a slightly sheer white layer underneath a really lightweight knit sweater.  The white layer is full in front and only partial in the back.  I love layered looks but somedays it’s just too hot for that.  These faux layered tops are the perfect fix.  They let me wear cute fall layers while still being cool.  Wearing this right now I would probably push the sleeves up because I did start getting a little warm while shooting this outfit.

I would definitely wear this exact outfit to work but I would change out to my skinny black work pants.  One of my favorite things right now is mixing pinks and burgundy colors.  I think all the different shades work so well together.

By the way these shoes are last season, so I did link a few similar styles.  I wore these shoes sooooo much last fall and winter.  If you want a great fall shoe to add a pop of color to your outfit, I think you should definitely consider a burgundy heel.  They can easily enhance any outfit.  I wore this pair so much, I am considering another pair with a higher heel.  My pair has a low almost kitten heel, and some days I just want a nice little 4 inch stiletto.  I’m thinking about getting a more basic pump, so it will be slightly different than this pair.
