Cargo & Lace

Not going to lie here–I miss fall. A LOT. Β Don’t tell my northern friends. The only bad thing about living here in Florida is that I miss out on the beauty that is autumn–from falling leaves to fancy gem tones–the season is perfect. I’m really missing the cooler temps that would allow me to layer and sport scarves and booties. Until I scrounge up enough money to make the trip home– I’ll be stuck fantasizing about fall and living vicariously through others.

But, in the spirit of the season, I decided to put together a fairly Florida-friendly version of fall layering. Β My universally favorite topper–the cargo vest–comes in pretty handy for layering over anything from lace to buffalo check. This summer-esque lacy top takes on a whole new identity when paired with fall’s gem tones like burgundy and hunter green.

To liven up the combo, I added a touch of leopard print with these flats and some tortoise accessories. How are you getting into the “fall frame of mind”?

p.s.–I had to share my newest find “Studdly” designs by the wonderful Maggie Antalek. Her rugged boho-meets-feminine pieces speak to me and I thought you might like to check them out as well! πŸ™‚

Love this quote. I become my most creative this time of year. This is when all the fun new things crop up in my house!

    I actually just found a cargo vest today at Old Navy! Excited to wear it with everything…I think it’s the closest I’ll be able to get to fall/winter layering down here. Hope your school year is going well so far!
