My Autumn Uniform

When fall comes around, I often find myself drifting back into the same basic outfit combo - what I like to call my autumn "uniform". Nine times out of ten, I can be spotted wearing some kind of variation of a top + skirt + flats/loafers. I might add some tights one day, or pull on a sweater over my button down, but the basic principle is the same. It's such an easy and put-together look that often I just find myself gravitating to the same formula whenever I pick out an outfit.

Especially on busy mornings, having a "uniform" makes deciding what to wear much easier. Today, I thought I would share a few different variations on the same look to see how you can take a simple outfit formula and change up the pieces to create the illusion of a different look each day.

I love this button-down chino skirt from J.Crew, and pairing it with a lightweight turtleneck makes the perfect combo for those warmer days in early fall.  The star of this outfit, however, is definitely these tiger-print loafers. J.Crew had several printed items in their later summer line, but this pair of shoes definitely takes the cake!

Cabernet is one of my favorite shades for the fall time, and I love pairing it with black and marled gray (like this gorgeous sleeveless sweater!). A leopard belt cinches in your waist and elevates the outfit. This would be the perfect look for an outdoor walk during the early fall. 

The dusty blush color of this sailor skirt with the gold buttons is gorgeous and so unique. To bring out the gold, I paired it with loafers from G.H. Bass (one of the most comfortable shoe brands I've ever owned) and a simple black off-the-shoulder top. To warm up off-the-shoulder trend and make it appropriate for fall, add a blanket scarf!

This skirt is the factory version of the J.Crew mixed houndstooth skirt from last year (I wore it in my post here). Houndstooth is one of my favorite patterns and I am so glad they brought it back this season, When I just need a quick, easy, and pulled-together outfit this is my go-to. Ralph Lauren button downs are the best. I have several different colors and they always look pressed and perfect with minimal fuss (tip -- look for them second hand). Tucked into a skirt with a pair of riding boots and pearls, and you have the perfect outfit!

Do you have a go-to "uniform"?
