The next few posts are under the subcategory “what the hell do I wear in September?” This sweater is by Endless Rose from Rent The Runway ($30 off your first rental HERE), paired with three different looks that can be worn in this 55°-85° weather.
LOOK 1- These granny Chanel slingbacks are the ONLY shoe that have made me break my long-standing rule of not wearing heels with denim cutoff shorts. Some people can pull it off, and as someone who loves *attempting* to pull off nearly any fashion feat, that is one look I just “can’t.” I do what I can to lessen the times I’ll have to look back and say “I wore THAT?!”, so staying away from cutoffs and heels is a nice place to start. Anyway- this look elongates the legs (I have a long torso and short legs for my height, but this look gives the illusion of longer stems) and feels put together. I love these earring from LA jewelry designer Sheila B., introduced to me by bff Sheila Fe.
LOOK 2- The muppet jeans make their second appearance! I originally styled/tried this outfit with the adidas Stan Smiths. It looked amazing in my head. In reality I looked like my dad circa 1982. The red shoes and bag brought the outfit to 2017. I got these shoes earlier in the summer at Macy’s and have worn them countless times. Often I will lust after a pair of shoes, save, finally purchase and then wear them a few times. I bought these on a whim (on sale) and have worn them more than almost any other shoe in my closet this summer, second only to my $34.95 rubber Birkenstocks. The bag is sold out but there are similar versions linked below.
LOOK 3- I’ve been a fan of this type of “utility” pant for as long as I can remember, and this is a SUPER high-waisted version (pants can never be too high IMO) new to J.Crew for fall, on sale in the link below. This is a great time of year to get away with long pants or jeans and sweaters with sandals (but whatever you do don’t wear high heels and cutoffs!). These 3.1 Phillip Lim shoes are surprisingly comfortable and also on super sale.
