It’s that time of year again! The leaves are changing colors, the air is getting crisp and the pumpkin spice latte is back. Fall has officially begun. During these chilly days, I want nothing more than to throw on my favorite big sweatshirt and a pair of leggings. However, this Fashionista inspired me with her comfortable yet stylish look.

I love the way this Fashionista took a plain black sundress, a piece normally seen in the spring or summer, and paired it with a cozy sweater to create the perfect fall look. I also love the way she softened the look of her black combat boots with girly lace-trimmed socks peaking out the top. Combat boots can sometimes appear harsh, so I think it is important to add a feminine touch like this Fashionista did. The contrast between the edgy leather boots and the feminine socks and sweater make for an outfit perfect for almost any occasion!

The sweater this Fashionista is wearing is perfect for the blistery fall and winter days we have here in Happy Valley. It can be paired with almost anything and is a great go-to item for when you want to look cute while also being cozy. What stood out to me about this Fashionista is the way she incorporated many different styles into one cohesive look and made it her own.

Too cold for bare legs? Swap out the dress with a cute basic T-shirt and dark jeans, and you have another cute and casual everyday fall outfit!

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I love mixing styles such as classic and edgy and making something different out of them. Comfort is also always a priority. Style is so personal and expressive; that’s why I love getting dressed every morning, because I know each outfit I put together represents who I am and what I like.”
