Two Vintage Looks for Phasing into Fall Fashion

Hello and happy autumn! September is here in Portland and the chilly autumnal season has started to arrive…and I couldn’t be more excited. Fall is probably my favorite season to dress in, because of all of the layers, colors, and textures - ah! Today I wanted to share two looks that I’ve been loving for phasing into autumn as the seasons change — styling outfits in transitioning seasons can sometimes be a challenge and I hope these are inspiring to gather outfit ideas from!

This first look has been one of my go-to’s this last month! I found these vintage Gap trousers at Portland Flea a couple of weeks ago and can’t take them off - they’re so soft and comfortable! Trousers are 100% my favorite statement piece in the colder months. This blouse is from one of my favorite boutiques in Tacoma, WA - Satori, from last season — I love it for early fall because it’s light enough to not be too warm, but still flowy and elegant!

Boots: Cordani (sold out but here are some similar ones from  Everlane )

This little bag from Basader is also one of my favorite upscale pieces for taking out on the town - super simple and small enough for just the essentials.

My next look includes a vintage statement piece as well — this fancy skirt I also found at Portland Flea! I usually don’t include too many patterns in my day-to-day wardrobe, but simple, minimalist ones like this are fun to incorporate once in a while. The skirt is so flowy and comfortable as well, something I always appreciate!

This blouse is another vintage piece I found recently, I love how form-fitting it is and light, too! It’s another wonderful layering piece as the weather transitions.
