Even though we’ve been mostly staying close to home the past several months, I still like to get up and get dressed. It helps me to feel “present and accounted for.”
But anything too elaborate or overdone just feels out of place now. I’m not walking between the tents at Fashion Week, I’m walking the dog, walking to the market, walking to the post office. Comfort is key, but I still like to look put-together.
I love corduroy for fall, and these pants are the perfect color. They work with so many other pieces in my wardrobe! So I thought it might be fun to use them as a starting point to create some fall outfits. It’s a great illustration of how working from my palette allows me to create a cohesive wardrobe with color.
(I’ve joined some of my favorite Over 50 bloggers in a roundup of Fall fashion and outfit ideas. Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of this post!)
When the calendar says Fall, but it still feels like Summer…
Fall in Southern California can fluctuate between cool-to-mild and hot, dry days. So for those warmer days, I’ve styled the cords here with a lightweight cotton top and some fun leopard print sandals. The corduroy fabric is light enough to be comfortable even in the heat.
I’m wearing size Small in the top, size Petite 28 in the pants.
When it starts cooling off…
For those early morning dog walks when it’s cool, but not quite cool enough for a jacket.
I’m wearing size Petite Small in the tee, size M in the vest, and size Petite 28 in the pants.
Another option for cool-morning-warm-afternoon days…
Wearing size Petite Small in the jacket, size Small in the tee, size Petite 28 in the pants.
Zoom meetings, or a sidewalk coffee date…
We’re often still in sandals well into October. On a cooler day, I could sub out my metallic sneakers.
Wearing size Petite Small in the sweater, size 0 in the tank, size Petite 28 in the pants.
When the weather turn brisk…
This bright quilted jacket is made from recycled plastic! It’s quite light and very warm.
Wearing size Petite Small in the jacket, Petite Medium in the sweater, and Petite 28 in the pants.
