To anyone who has read even just a few of my previous Style Advice posts, I’m sorry. I realize I must sound like a broken record. I can’t help it. I find Florida’s never-ending heat quite annoying, especially when it comes to dressing myself. Sometimes a girl just wants to throw on a cardigan without breaking a sweat. I mean, come on! It’s October.
So as you might guess, I was ecstatic when the weather dropped below 70 degrees last week. And although some of us received ridicule for it, I was one of many that broke out my scarf collection. Now, I want to be clear. Thick, wool knit scarves in the high 60s/low 70s are quite ridiculous. It’s cooler out, not freezing. But light, breathable scarves are totally acceptable.
When I spotted this Fashionista, I knew I had to share her ensemble. This little lady has the perfect look for our faux-fall weather. She begins her outfit with a white, sheer button-down and a pair of black shorts. She pairs that with a pretty beige cardigan, neutral socks and black combat boots. She completes the look with a fabulous maroon scarf and accessorizes with large circular earrings and an eclectic collection of rings. Really, the whole look is to die for.
If you’d like to replicate this Fashionista’s look, it’s quite simple. Just take your typical summer outfit (shorts and a shirt) and spruce it up with a great pair of boots, a fun scarf and a light cardigan. Voila! You’re ready for October in St. Augustine.
