I’ve always loved accessorizing with scarves. They add just the right amount of texture and interest to any look. I tied this silk scarf similar to a necktie and kept my look simple and chic. A fitted tee, wide-leg wool pants, and streamline flats for a polished look.
We had some really cold temps this past weekend in Chicago. Cold enough to get out my puffer coat and warmer layers. For this look, I kept it classic with dark colors and elevated basics. You can never go wrong with cozy turtlenecks, boots, and extra-warm layers when you live in the Midwest!
The climate in Chicago can be really dry, especially during the fall and winter months. My skin becomes dry and irritated due to the weather and constant need to have the furnace running. I’ve just started using Curél – Hydra Therapy and I love how soft and moisturized my skin feels. It’s a wet skin moisturizer, so applying it to freshly showered skin is key. It’s a water activated ceramide formula that hydrates the skin’s surface and helps to keep in moisture. It may feel strange applying a moisturizer to damp skin, though the benefits are worth it!
This post was a collaboration with Curél. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting collaborations with Taffeta and Cedar!
It’s been a pretty mild fall in Chicago – warmer temps and there are still green leaves on the trees! I’ve been able to layer different knits and I’ve just started wearing boots and sweaters. I love the large knit and texture of this sweater from IRO. It’s just the right amount of warmth, and look at those extra long sleeves! What are some of your favorite knits and sweaters this season?
If you haven’t noticed, black is my favorite color to wear. It’s classic, effortless and chic. I enjoy seeing color, just not wearing it. I picked up this frayed blazer a few weeks ago to add to my collection of black jackets and blazers…becasue they all look completely different. Seriously, they do! I feel like this will be a fall favorite and I can’t wait to layer it over some heavier knitwear.
It’s October, I guess that means it’s time to pack away the summer sandals and switch to boots and close-toed shoes for six long months. I do love a classic boot, jeans and comfy sweater or tee. A simple, yet polished look for the weekend or even the office. What boots do you have your eye on this fall?
Overalls, a crisp button down and loafers are the perfect combination of comfort and easy styling. It’s beginning to feel and look like fall in Chicago, so it’s time to start making that switch to longer sleeves, layers and boots. What are some of your go-to pieces when transitioning into the cooler fall weather?
