Pumped for Fall

Adam Lippes for Target pumps Banana Republic Faux Leather Pleated Midi Skirt, Adam Lippes for Target Plaid Pumps

These Adam Lippes for Target pumps are closely edging in on my Prabal Gurung for Target heels for favorite pair in my closet.  The silhouette is perfect, the pattern is fun, they’re comfortable, and they’re only $40- what more could you want in a pair of heels?!

Two stores I frequently visit for office-appropriate clothing are The Limited and Banana RepublicThe Limited for their timeless pieces that will go with any and everything for years to come (like this blouse), and Banana Republic for their chic, office-appropriate interpretations of seasonal trends (like this faux leather pleated skirt).

Burgundy Skirt: Round Two

This burgundy skirt has been on repeat with this warm weather lately!  The color absolutely screams ‘fall’, but I get to hold onto precious skirt days for a little while longer!  I love this vibrant blue top paired with the dark hued skirt, especially while colors in New England are out in full force! It was actually a bright blue sky situated next to some turning leaves that inspired me to pair these two colors together.  I don’t know how anyone can spend time in New England during the fall and not feel inspired and in love with the beauty of nature!Burgundy Skirt | The Sol Compass Blue and Burgundy on The Sol Compass fresh color combinations for fall on The Sol Compass love this color combo on The Sol Compass Burgundy skirt for fall on The Sol Compass Burgundy and Blue on The Sol Compass

As we’ve established, I am such a sucker for bright colors and bold patterns.  Luckily, I know that every season (especially summer) I can count on J.Crew Factory to deliver on both.  Almost all of my weekend outfits consist of patterned shorts in fun colors from there that are a perfect length and incredibly comfortable.  So it should come as no surprise that I should find a perfect work appropriate skirt with the same enchanting qualities!  This fun multicolored pencil skirt is really similar to this one I wore here in Newburyport.  I went back and forth trying to decide which one I should buy, but ultimately I decided to go for both since they are both so perfect for completely different occasions (#noregrets).  Even better news: they’re both currently over 50% off!  This white top from Ann Taylor is sold out in most sizes, but I love their constant effort to keep work appropriate tops different and beautiful.  The simple eyelet pattern is not too obvious but still adds an element of surprise from the traditional collared white shirt I would normally pair with this skirt.

Here’s the weird thing about today’s post: I don’t even like the color yellow.  Yeah, I know.  Blame it on my inner cynical Bostonian, but the color yellow is usually way too aggressively happy and obnoxiously bright for my liking.  Yet, despite this strong opinion I’ve held onto for years, I love this skirt.  This shade of yellow is soft and buttery enough to brighten up any outfit just the right amount.  I’m also partial to pale yellow paired with olive green, so just add in some delicate gold accents and preppy loafers and this outfit is an all-star in my book.
