The early return of Pumpkin Spice lattes has really started this autumn off right, if you ask me. Thanks, Starbucks. You all know how much I love a good theme, and clearly autumn is one of favorite themes. Thus, today’s theme was ‘cozy autumn jewel tone layers.’ I couldn’t really think of a jazzy way to title that for the post, aside from shortening it to “autumn amor.” But, this look is totally autumn amor, so I think it works!
Denim? Turquoise? Wedges? Layers? Pumpkin spice latte? I’m in autumnal heaven…
Toss me a pumpkin and some apples and I will get to work baking and telling you about my favorite Halloween movies…or you could just read on about shopping and fashion (probably a better choice, I tend to ramble about those things).
Sweater: Banana Republic (approx $17 marked down from approx $70)
Denim shirt: Forever 21 ($20)
Pants: Gap (approx $35 marked down from $55)
Shoes: BC at Urban Outfitters (they are so old, I can’t even remember the price! Approx $30 on sale)
Jacket: DKNY (no price can be recalled for this one. I bought this on sale approximately 10 years ago at Marshall Fields, when it was still open)
Scarf: Nordstrom Rack (approx $10)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) This is my first attempt at transitioning patterned pants into fall/winter seasons. I added a sweater and denim shirt to keep the look grounded in cooler weather, while still exposing my ankles with the cropped pants. The sweater could also be worn in warmer weather but I kept it looking ‘autumn’ by wearing a denim shirt underneath and letting the denim extend past the shorter sleeves of the sweater.
2) I’m always surprised when I have on a bunch of pieces from all different places and they all match. However, it’s no surprise that I tend to wear turquoise and blues a fair amount. Thus, when I find pieces in similar hues, I grab them and know that I can mix and match pieces easily. I think having a couple of heavily rotated colors in your wardrobe makes mix and matching easy so that you can get more use out of your pieces.
Anyone else have a color or colors that they tend to wear a lot? Anyone else going autumn crazy lately?

You totally do!! They are so cozy with fall looks 🙂
You are pretty much speaking on behalf of my soul here. Pumpkin spice? Yep. Love a good theme? Absolutely. I’m wearing teal/turquoise today too, I’m loving it for fall. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to dash over to Starbucks for my favorite PSL accessory… 😀
Haha! I even branched out, and brace yourself, I got the salted caramel mocha. …magic. It was magic. Toss on a scarf and I’m really having a fall party. 🙂
very beautiful your outfit ❤

Aww! Thank you! I love how you combine all your looks as well! 🙂
Love outfit. Amazing colors.
Thanks!! The colors are so rich and perfect for fall!!
You are a layering champ! This is a perfect transitional outfit.
My fall colors tend to be cool-toned, saturated hues with a *ton* of grey.
I’m crazy for layered looks. I may even take it too far sometimes, haha!! Yes, I love cool tones as well- especially grays!
Thanks, dear!! 🙂 xo
You look gorgeous, love the way how you put all together, I also love blue color so much;)
I love blue and turquoise tones- I think I should steer away from those colors sometimes, but I can’t resist!! xo
also love your shoes, they are so comfy! Thank you for lovely comments on my blog, Have a good rest of the week
You too!! 🙂 love your blog
Beautiful way of transitioning into fall! Love the jewel tones and the printed pants! Such a fabulous combination!
Thanks, Rebecca!! I love jewel tones and patterns/prints…especially in fall, I can’t resist!!
Thank you!! I appreciate that 🙂 I am crazy for fall layers!!
Loving this layered look, pure fashion genius. 😀 I never get sick of typing this… great style.
Seriously, can I just live in layers and denim? Because that would be amazing! I wish there was a magical place where it was fall fashion year round!! 🙂 xo
That would be a dream come true. Hehe, I would even settle for a fashion portal.
Your post reminded me that I need a latte asap. It’s the best walking throught the city with a seasonal latte and no coat! Stripes with a subtle pattern are awesome, no? Love the layering!
That’s so true! I was thinking as I posted that the time of year when you can layer without a coat is the best!! And yes, go grab a latte! Some days, I’m powered by lattes and heels 🙂
