A bold sundress works wonders in the fall. Choose a rich jewel-toned hue and layer on warm accessories for a unique look that's both savvy and stylish.
I love a dress with a little extra oomph. This particular frock has dainty petal-like sleeves and a flirtatious back slit, which gives it loads of personality. A back cut-out is a modest way to show some skin, but if you aren't digging the vibe? Just throw on a jacket!
An olive green trench jacket is a fall staple that I find myself reaching for on the regular. The shade is neutral but not boring while the oversized structure is ideal for layering.
Being from the Midwest but going to school in the South, I've learned to embrace cowboy boots and thus have incorporated them into everyday outfits. They add a whimsical charm to even the most preppy outfits. Down here they're a no-brainer and worn all year round.
These chains add a modern, edgy flair to an otherwise simplistically sweet look. They're a true focal point and look phenomenal against a solid color. The perfect way to add some pizazz to a minimalist look is through jewelry!

Here it is, the confession: these photos were not taken this month. In fact, they were taken back in April. It's true, I like to keep a backlog of outfit photos for whenever I'm in a pinch and haven't had time to take some shots with my photographer. It's a very handy practice that most bloggers engage in and it has saved me many times! So in case you were wondering where my newly-dyed bleached hair went - now you know. Spoiler alert: it will be back soon!
Although this outfit was photographed in spring, I always had this look in mind for fall. I knew I wanted to save these photos and post them during a chillier month because the entire look - color palette in all - has all of the essential elements that create a classic fall ensemble From my bold, layered jewelry, to my boots and military-inspired jacket, this look is 100% autumn-approved.
