Trying to create outfit posts this time of year is always a challenge. While much of the hemisphere is gearing up for Fall, in Southern California we’re just now heading into the warmest weeks of the year. And it usually doesn’t start to cool down until late October. But I want to share some of my Fall Finds while they’re still available, so will be styling a few pieces even if it’s still too warm to wear them here. (And when it does finally does cool off, I’ll have some workable transitional season outfits ready to go.)
I’m really impressed with this faux-suede jacket! The quality is quite good, as is the fit. (I’m wearing 0 Petite. Chico’s has their own sizing system; this corresponds to 4-6P in standard sizing.) And it’s machine washable!
The gold layered necklaces are both from French Kande’s FK Petite collection. These are lightweight and perfect for everyday wear.
I haven’t had much luck finding non-denim pants that are in my color palette, and in a style that works for me. So much of what’s currently available is either too full, too wide, or too high in the rise. These are what I’ve found so far, and I still have a couple other styles on order to try.
My weight’s crept up about 5 pounds in the last year, and I can really see it in how my clothes are fitting. Yes, I’ve added some muscle since starting Pilates a year ago, but I don’t think I’ve added that much. 😆 I’ve been a bit lackadaisical about trying to drop those pounds. But now that I’m looking to revamp my wardrobe, I think this is a good time to address it. A few people I know have had good results with FASTer Way to Fat Loss, so I’m giving that another go. (I started it last year, but dropped out after a few weeks.)
The sandals are probably a bit more rugged than I’d like for this outfit, but I have yet to find anything better that’s as comfortable.
Have you started planning your transitional season outfits yet?
