To be honest, I feel like this fall was unusually warm…am I wrong? Usually, my drawers are bursting at the seams with jeans, while my closet is overflowing with wool sweaters hung, but this year the warmth has my closet looking rather barren.
I’ve actually pushed my jeans to the side and have been purchasing and supplying my fall wardrobe with skirts of all things. At first, I was hesitant with some of my more short skirt purchases, frankly because my favorite skirts are mid-length but I knew they would look quite awkward to wear with loafers or riding boots.
So I stretched my style limits and started picking up these shorter skirts from J.Crew. As I said above at first I was 99% sure I’d return them within two days, but after wearing this outfit to a local fair, I couldn’t get enough. The fit is classic, the style of the skirt looks perfect with turtlenecks (a fall favorite of mine) not to mention they are as comfortable and versatile.
So last weekend, Matt surprised me by taking me to the fair. I was so excited, so I styled this classic fall look, and we went on our way. The drive was quite long, so when I saw these bales of hay on the side of the road, I demanded Matt to stop.
We parked on the side of the highway and got to work. Now if you follow me on Instagram then you already know that while we were taking our pictures…we got attacked by a mound of fire ants. It was our first run in with these ants, and hopefully our last. So halfway through getting our perfect shots, we ended up sprinting from the field and into our car.
Anyway, since I was wearing a skirt, I got bites all up my leg but I sported the skirt anyways. Overall, after a day of fair wear and tear, I would really recommend looking into adding these skirts to your fall wardrobe. Some of my recent favorites are this plaid mini skirt, this velvet knee-length number, and finally this houndstooth mini skirt. All of the above skirts, I personally own and can vouch for their quality and comfort.
