Even though there is a September heat wave going on, my eyes have been on fall weather outfits. I love the usual Fall fashion trends so I’m excited for the upcoming months! Layers, scarves, deep reds and olive tones are definitely some things I’m looking forward to. Velvet as a Fall texture is a lovely material to explore this season. I recently came across this Anthropologie ‘Holding Horses’ velvet button down on sale and snapped it up. Isn’t the color just gorgeous? I love the combination of velvet and silk (on the inside layer) and wearing it is a dream. Another fabric I’ve been loving is denim so combining them was pretty much perfect. I’ve been kind of obsessed with these Levi’s high rise 721s. They are so comfy and give this shirt an everyday vibe instead of creating an over-dressed situation. I like the slightly western/country flavor this outfit evokes without being too over the top.
I recently traveled back to Minneapolis, my hometown, to sort through some old clothes and items to keep or donate. I found my old Gap suede backpack and fell in love with it all over again. Don’t you love finding old things in the back of your closet and rediscovering them all over again? It’s like finding $20 in the pocket of your old winter coat. This bag is made out of a nice sturdy suede and has lasted a lifetime. I guess you could say it’s a “buy it for life” bag! It works nicely as a small hiking bag or as an everyday small back pack. It’s nice to bring old things back into circulation!
