Sometimes blogging challenges you to try new things when it comes to your style and sometimes it causes you to have a little bit of an identity crisis. Do I really like this piece of clothing or am I just wearing it because it’s trendy? I’ve been reading quite a few blog posts lately from my fellow bloggers talking about this very fact. I’ve also been feeling the same way. My closet has quite a few things in it currently that I don’t love to wear and on most days I go for my old favorites; those basic, classic pieces. For fall, this is my classic outfit.
Classic Fall Outfit
Put on your dancing shoes, it’s legging season. When the air turns just the tiniest bit cooler, I put on my leggings and remember how very awesome they are. My very favorite thing to wear with my leggings are my classic riding boots. I’ve owned this particular pair of Sam Edelman Penny boots for about four years now. They were a great purchase! I have splurged on things and then let them sit in my closet, and felt extremely guilty over it. However, these boots are one of those purchases I’ve never regretted. When I first bought them, I was dying for a pair of Frye boots, but they were so out of my price range. I picked this pair instead and am so glad I did. Sure, they could use a little polishing, but four years old and worn very heavily every year, they still look great! They are still sold today and totally worth it.
Y’all know I love my big totes, but now that my littlest is getting older (and closer to being potty trained) I can get away with traveling without diapers! Woo! I ordered this simple crossbody bag from Madewell, it’s so classic and so well made. I opted for the monogram, which I love, but I didn’t expect it to be as large as it is. Since my initials are “BAA”, it’s borderline like, is that a monogram or you trying to say something about sheep? My husband totally made fun of it. Still love it, not caring.
Oh but what leggings are the best leggings? My favorite kind are ponte. They’re thick, so you don’t have to worry about them being see through. I have a pair from LOFT that I love! They come in petite, so thats a plus, always! This particular outfit includes the ponte knit bell sleeve top from Old Navy I talked about in my buying lately post, as well as the boyfriend cardigan I mentioned. I love this cardigan!
You can find me wearing this outfit just about any day. It takes me from t-ball, to the grocery store – living that mom life. What is your favorite outfit to wear?
