how to start wearing your fall clothes now

In an interesting {but certainly not unexpected in Michigan} turn of events after a particularly sweltering week last week, this week is much cooler and almost fall like. It’s as if mother nature has been monitoring my purchases and is responding to the sweaters, booties, and jackets I’ve been buying. While I’m not ready for summer to be over it has been fun to start styling my new fall wardrobe in a way that works for the weather now. 

Have you heard of Baukjen? They’re a British clothing brand who I’ve become particularly fond of recently. I’d say their pieces are elevated basics, definitely pieces that are worth the investment because of their quality and timelessness but they also feel modern and fresh. I could not wait to style this sweater {or jumper as they call it, because British!}. It’s hard to imagine a scenario where you couldn’t wear this piece – it could definitely be dressed up with black pants {knickers?} and pumps for the office just as easily as it could be dressed down for the weekend. It’s also very lightweight so it can be easily tucked and layered making it even more perfect for any weather.

To play off the concept of modern basics I added this new jacket and these booties both in my new favorite color for fall, olive green. I love how they really pulled the look together. What tried and true pieces are you looking to add to your wardrobe for the next season? I’d love to hear!
