FALLing in Love

I am loving my fall colored outfit today, even though I forgot to add my watch and bracelets for the photos (and my necklace is crooked).  This is a first time wear for this plaid button down shirt and the gold flats.  I can imagine these being go to items over the next few months.  For myself, a look that is comfortable and classic with a casual feel is a look I like best.
These pants were more bell bottom style, but I was able to alter them slightly to a more tapered look from knee to ankle and now I like them much better.  I did the same to a pair of turquoise pants.  They could stand to be a little narrower and possibly shorter, but I thought I'd better quit while I was ahead.  It's nearly a miracle, with my sewing skills, that I didn't ruin them.  So I'm happy with them for now and I know I'll wear them both much more this way.



I'm linking up with Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday.

  1. Great fall colors, Lisa! I think you did a fine job with your alterations, and I agree that slimmer pants are a more modern look. You have a wonderful smile! Thanks for linking up.

    1. Hi, Betty. :)
      The jacket is around 6-9 years old. I forget. It's not denim. It's 100% cotton and I think it's from Walmart. Totally inexpensive. I'm guessing it may have been $11 or something. But I do like the sort of safari vibe from it with the tannish color and pockets. I saw another blogger wearing one as I was perusing blogs a couple of nights ago and decided to pull this out and put together an outfit. It's an item that I normally don't reach for, but I like it paired with a button down for fall. I'm glad I discovered this look and incorporated it into my style.
      I'm such a late fashion bloomer. haha
