A Fall Transition

I woke up this morning to my thermostat reading 57 degrees… I guess fall really is here.  But even though the temps are dropping and it is past Labor Day don’t think for one minute my white jeans are getting packed up! Oh no, I, like many others lately, have taken to completely ignoring that rule- especially in early fall.  I am absolutely loving the look of white jeans with a chunky knit fisherman sweater. This could be my uniform for those days it stays under 65. It’s crisp, classic, comfortable and most importantly, chic- as shown by these lovely ladies.

Here’s how you and I can get the look- some affordable options as well an investment pieces, like that Reed Krakoff bag (I’m lusting after this version) and a classic Barbour jacket.  Also absolutely LOVING this delicate and gorgeous diamond necklace by India Hicks (her whole jewelry line is heaven).

  1. Go for the Barbour Jacket Erin! I bought one last year and wore it well into December and then back out it came in March. So durable and you don’t feel like a frump in it!

  2. Ha! Earlier this week a co-worker and I were just laughing at our disregard of the post-Labor Day ban on white pants. Thanks for the validation.

  3. Love the India Hicks jewelry- my husband and I are headed to Harbour Island for our very delayed honeymoon this fall and I have my heart set on the “tip to tail necklace” from her shop!

  4. Michael Kors tweeted about this very subject on Monday “Ignore old rules. White after Labor Day is glamorous. – xxMK” My white jeans aren’t going anywhere either!

  5. I just saw Old Navy marked down their white denim, like, a TON now that summer’s over. This look might be what finally gets me out there to buy them. And a cable-knit sweater. And some boots.

    What is it with me and fall shopping? Am I alone on this? Why do I want to buy ALL of it?!

  6. Just finally found the perfect maxi dress and I’m wearing it today despite cooler temp. Don’t want to admit that fall is here but those pictures are not only inspiring but remind me of how much I love to layer. Thanks.

  7. I love this whole outfit! It is perfect for the fall season that is coming up. Time to get our closets ready for the fall. I love wearing neutral colors paired up with some boots. I usually go for the Bear Paw boots. They are sooo stylish and super comfy. I get mines from http://www.shoedaca.com

  8. Great classics for the fall days ahead!

    Was wondering if you have any French/London Sole flats? I’m contemplating the quilted Henrietta ones but don’t know anyone who’s bought and worn a pair to know if they’re comfortable and last well. Thanks!
