Real-life Transition to Fall Outfits

September 22, 2023

Happy Friday! It’s time to look back at how I really dressed for my days this week. I’m sharing my real-life transition to fall outfits. We had some delightfully cool weather a few days, but mostly sunny and warm days. I’m enjoying the weather, but itching to wear my sweaters, too. What about you?

How This Works

These are my real life outfits from my own closet. Many of these things are available, but some may not be. When I can locate one quickly I’ll share substitutes and/or more economical options. But if I don’t provide one and you’d like for me to, just ask.

All available items are linked in the captions of the photos. Even if they don’t look like links (sometimes they don’t highlight for some reason), they generally are. So just click through if you’re interested.

What I Wore Friday

Last Thursday we left Zanesville, Ohio, where I’d had a speaking engagement the night before, and traveled through backcountry roads to Millersburg, Ohio, at the hub of Amish and Mennonite life in our state. It was a beautiful day with sun shining and temperatures remaining in the 60s most of the day.

I’ve been having a little trouble with one of my feet, so I decided to wear my sneakers for most of the weekend. So I created an outfit with my pleated midi skirt and tank with a denim jacket. This outfit felt perfect for our day of car travel and stopping at a fun coffee shop, a winery (above) and a cheese shop along the way.

By the way, if you ever have the opportunity to visit Amish country in Ohio, definitely do. I’ve been to Amish country in Pennsylvania several times, and thought it was beautiful. But this area of Ohio really is even more lovely to me, rolling with hills and beautiful farms.

What I Wore Sunday

I guess I was really in vacation mode (even though we took about five sets of photos Saturday) because I failed to take a photo at all of Saturday’s outfit. But basically I wore the outfit I showed in this recent blog post, just with the grey sweater.

Sunday morning we rose early to travel the two and a half hours home for church. That’s the life of the wife of a pastor! But I’m not complaining. It was well worthy rising early and traveling back to Cincinnati.

Sunday morning I put on my Quince cotton fisherman sweater with my black ankle length pants (and here and here). I love the way this outfit came together with the oatmeal colored sweater and beige accessories. I wore a black belt and gave the sweater a gentle front tuck for better proportions. I wore my Lagos jewelry. I normally steer clear of high contrast looks, but I think this works for me because of the creaminess of the beige pieces. This is definitely a classic transition to fall outfit for me.

What I Wore Tuesday

Monday we shot videos, so I didn’t really wear anything. Ha! That sounds not right. Hahaha! I wore lots of things, but didn’t really put on an outfit of the day before or after all the video shooting. You get the picture. I have a bonus video coming out tomorrow, by the way. That’s why the video shoot took all day.

Anyhow…Tuesday I was itching to get dressed up a little, so I put on my green chino skirt with a fun graphic tee. I decided the black cross over sandals felt pretty good on my foot, so I added a black belt to pull the outfit together.

I don’t think I actually went anywhere that day. I was pretty much glued to my desk editing Wednesday’s video. It is worth noting that the chino skirt fits so comfortably (I’m wearing a 29) and is super fun and easy to style. AND it’s marked down 40%. Sizes are going fast, but they are giving you the option to get an email when it restocks, so that makes me think more will come in. This turned out to be one of my favorite transition to fall outfits of the week.

What I Wore Wednesday

Wednesday I was a slave to my desk again as I needed to edit Saturday’s bonus video and turn it into my sponsor by end of day. I wanted to be comfortable, so I wore my wide leg ankle jeans. These run true to size and are marked down significantly at Saks right now.

I finished the outfit with my sneakers to help with that nagging foot issue, but I’d probably wear something different if I were going out.

What I Wore Thursday

Thursday I did indeed get out to go to the doctor about my foot. The pain is in the metatarsal area, in the ball of my foot, and it’s really just a sore inconvenience. It doesn’t hurt unless I walk on it. I’m just filling you in because I’ve been getting lots of messages about plantar fasciitis, but that’s not what this is. I assumed it may be a fracture, but the x-rays I had yesterday indicated no fracture or break or any bone damage or malformation at all. So I’m waiting to talk with my nurse practitioner about the results later today. Meanwhile I’m icing, elevating and taking Ibuprofen round the clock at her instruction.

Needing to wear my charming sneakers (ha!), I wore my denim skirt (out of stock- similar 1 similar 2) and cashmere tee. I wore my cognac colored accessories and a little jewelry. This outfit worked really nicely for a doctor’s visit, lunch out, shopping at Talbots and those x-rays. By the way, I have a bonus blog post today with the things I purchased at Talbots. Be sure to check it out since they are offering 25% off and 3x style points sitewide right now. And you get FREE shipping on orders of $150 and more.

So those were the transition to fall outfits I wore this week. Thanks so much for stopping in.

Blessed for My Day

Ahh, self control. Maybe you’re like me and you easily exercise self-control in some areas, but really struggle in others. And some days are better than others when it comes to being disciplined enough to do what I should and resist what I should. Can you relate?

For me one of the best ways to increase my self-control is to remind myself regularly of the “why.” If I know my “why” and keep it in front of me, I’m more likely to do what is good for me. Today I’m trying to remember that self-control is necessary for healthy living. Discipline keeps me healthier, safer, more productive and more available for my family and friends. It also helps me to become more Christlike in other ways. And when I fail to exercise self-control, I open myself up to problems down the road.

It is not good to eat much honey,
Nor is it glory to search out one’s own glory.
Like a city that is broken into and without walls
So is a person who has no self-control over his spirit. ~ Proverbs 25:27-28

xoxo, Kay
