Hello Hello, back with a little fall fashion inspiration for you. As I add more casual pieces to my closet, I really wanted to give a graphic tee a go. Of course, I put my spin on it adding leather, heels, and a skirt to create five ways to wear a graphic tee in the fall. It’s a mix of warm fall days to casual looks to a night out all featuring a band tee.
Also, the holiday gift guides are back! I’m doing my guides a little different this year and adding them all to one page so you don’t have to scroll through different posts to find the best gift ideas. You can find it all on my dedicated GIFT GUIDE PAGE. Bookmark it to check back as I add gift ideas all month long. You can also find a link on the menu bar of the blog.
FIVE WAYS TO WEAR A GRAPHIC TEE IN THE FALL
with a long cardigan and booties
A classic fall outfit combo. The olive green of the cardigan works really well with the ivory of the tee. Since the cardigan is long, I opted to tie the tee at my waist. This helps the two long tops from overwhelming my petite frame and can add a height illusion.
with a leather jacket
A leather jacket adds an edgy and chic feel to the graphic tee. The black jeans contrast well with the print on the tee, and my brown heeled boots add to the chic factor of the overall look.
with a denim jacket & leather leggings
For an ulimate comfy and casual look, toss on a pair of faux leather leggings, denim jacket and sneakers. The jacket and sneakers help create a dressed down casual look, and the leggings add just a hint of edginess and comfort.
with a leather skirt & booties
An easy way to dress up a graphic tee is with a chic leather or suede skirt and pair of heeled booties. I opted for a warm brown leather to work with the warm colors in the tee, and a black bootie to contrast the skirt and pull out the faded black of the print on the tee.
with cutoff shorts & booties
Living in Texas, I’m always thinking up ways to dress for fall and deal with that early fall heat. A pair of faded black jeans shorts are the perfect pair for early fall. I tossed on my brown western style booties to bring this outfit even more into fall.

I’m so excited to share that I have ventured into the land of video tutorials over on Instagram! I’ve shared little mini tutorials in Stories, but I had been wanting to branch out to longer IGTV ones for awhile now. I finally decided to just go for it and get one posted. The longer format of IGTV over stories lets me go into more detail and not feel so rushed. I also love that instagram lets me share the video into a blog post, so I can share these tutorials with everyone not just those on IG.
Today’s fall eye makeup tutorial features warm fall inspired colors with a touch of sparkle. This eye shadow look will be great for holiday parties or a night out. After I finish my eyes, I’m also sharing a look at how I complete my makeup with my full face routine. All the products and shades are linked at the bottom of the post for easy reference. I hope you enjoy and be sure to come follow on Instagram for more tutorials.

I’m really sad to be saying goodbye to my perfect weather month. It was such a good one, and we had so many evenings spent relaxing outside on our patio. My fall outfits this month were a direct reflection of the mix of cool and warm weather including some sweaters and some tank tops. Now that we are heading into a cooler month, I’m predicting you will see more layered fall outfits in the next roundup.

Today is a big day for the blog. Six years ago, I hit publish on my first blog post and started on the most amazing adventure. Y’all it does not feel like it has been 6 years at all. I’ve enjoyed putting together all the fabulous fashion and beauty posts over the years. I can’t wait to continue to grow and evolve Lady in Violet, and I thank you for stopping by every week to see what’s going on over here. I’ve been brainstorming and working on some exciting new posts, goals, and ideas for the future of the blog. I can’t wait to see what adventures the next six years hold!
Now let’s get to the topic we all love to discuss – fashion! When fall hits, I know I start grabbing for my darker and jewel toned colors. Just because we are in the heart of fall does not mean you can’t still style those bright summer colors. I’m sharing five different ways to style a bright color in the fall season. I styled all of these with my bright blue sweater, but these would work for all of your summer brights.
HOW TO WEAR BRIGHT COLORS IN FALL
WITH DARK BLUE JEANS & BOOTIES
Dark blue jeans are my go to must have jean for fall. It works well with all the colors. It provides the dark contrast needed for bright colors to ease them into fall.
WITH BLACK JEANS & BROWN BOOTS
Another staple providing great contrast to bright colors is a pair of black jeans. Brown leather boots are another great pairing to help compliment the bright color.
WITH WHITE JEANS & TAN BOOTS
Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you can’t pull out those white jeans. White pants are the perfect way to make those bright colors really pop. For shoes, look for a light colored boot or bootie to simulate a winter white type look.
WITH A PLAID SKIRT
Plaid skirts are perfect for pairing with bright colors. You can find a dark or neutral plaid like this black and white skirt to add contrast or opt for a plaid skirt that also has your bright color in the plaid. When doing a color match, I prefer the matching color to be a minor color in the plaid print.
WITH GRAY JEANS & BLACK BOOTS
Gray jeans are a fun neutral color jean to have in your denim arsenal. The cool color of this sweater and cool tone of the gray work to compliment each other perfectly.
