K: With the start of September, we’ve got fall on our minds. South Texas doesn’t really allow for true fall clothing until October, if we’re lucky. That being said, I’m always one to embrace a new season. Instead of wearing thick sweaters, over the knee boots, and scarves, Brandon and I both opt for fall colors, while still wearing items that will keep us cool. We can’t believe how fast August went by and even though it’s still hot, the mornings are starting to feel a little cooler, stores have put out fall decorations, football has begun, and we’re welcoming the season with open arms.
B: The season of fall immediately places one thing within my mind: hunting. I try to hunt as often as possible, which usually amounts to a sad three times a year. Nonetheless, I love hunting birds with our black lab Tara who is trained to retrieve and hunt right along side. We were unable to hunt over the Labor Day Weekend, but will go afield as soon as possible to allow Tara (and myself) to enjoy the outdoor activities that her long line of ancestors were bred to do. Our experiences together are unlike any other, and we definitely love our father-daughter bonding time.
I have always enjoyed keeping to a color scheme that fits a particular season. Deep burgundy, rich browns, orange, gold, and navy are just a few colors that play an integral role in my fall wardrobe. This fall and winter, Katherine has requested that I incorporate a few more sweaters into my wardrobe to spiff up my layering game…the results will follow in posts as soon as the weather drops a few degrees.
K: I love this outfit because it mixes edgy and feminine together. I would consider the body-con, lace-up top to be a little edgier, while the classic floral skirt brings a softer, more feminine vibe to the look. The key to wearing florals in the fall is simple: just make sure the pattern has fall colors in it like the deep pinks, oranges, and navy tones here. Unfortunately, my skirt is no longer available at Anthropologie (I scored it in the sale section) but I’ve linked several floral skirts below, all perfectly acceptable for fall.
