It’s rare for me to throw on a sweater and a pair of jeans and feel like myself. I’m getting over my aversion to pants, but am still more likely to do skinnies and a tunic than any other pants-based combination. These fantastically comfy Lee straightlegs just might change my tune. I wore this during a blissful cool snap before the weather began its fall transitional roller-coaster ride, and felt surprisingly comfy and chic.

How will your style change when the weather shifts?

  • I love this look on you so hard. Will definitely be putting together a similar look of my own in the coming weeks. Like… stop in my tracks worthy awesome outfit. You look divine.

    OK. I’m done now.


  • I love the necklace with that sweater! I know, I’m ready for pants, and sweaters, and dare I say – layers?

  • Those jeans are excellent on you! And I love the shoes!!

  • I’m with Becca, this is a great classic look for you, Sal — made your own with those fabulous red oxfords and bib necklace.

  • H.

    I love everything about this look. And those red booties/heeled oxfords…to die for.

  • Anne

    That weather “rollercoaster” is crazy isn’t it. As soon as it starts to cool a bit, I’ll go through all my tee shirts and throw out the ratty and pitted ones. Then I start stowing the pastels and obviously summer duds. I bring out the earth toned and darker tees. Sometime between turkey day and Xmas I can finally start wearing sweaters.

    I really like this look too, made special by the red shoes and cool bag. I wore jeans today today for the 2nd time in the last 2 months I think, and it felt great. Already thinking about cardigans, long sleeve dresses, and boots.

  • Aziraphale

    Nice outfit! Good for you for going out of your comfort zone. Love the shoes and necklace.

  • You look awesome, Sally!

  • mmm…fall has always been my favorite season, clothes-wise. growing up in wisconsin, it was the right time of year for all the layers and coziness (and oh, what a color palette!) that i loved, before winter and practicality (read: the effort of getting around outside in a college town in the snow) outweighed desire to be cute or stylish. now, however, i live in the foggy sf bay area, where fall through mid-spring is exactly right for tights and boots and sweaters and scarves…once you get past the hot snap of indian summer in mid-autumn, that is.

    so, while everyone else is hanging onto the last bits of summer, i am anxiously awaiting fall weather and the next six months of my favorite clothes. =)

    you look cute! and those jeans look really wonderful on you. my favorites (bandolino arianna, found at a thrift shop!) have a similar fit, though a little bit more flared. high waist and nicely-fitted on my curvy hips =)

  • Whoa! I’m not sure why you have pants aversion because these look great on you! The whole look is fabulous and elegant.

  • shebolt

    I agree. This looks absolutely fabulous on you!

    The only real style change I make for the fall is the introduction of jeans back into my wardrobe. I can’t stand to wear denim when it’s hot and humid.

    And, once daytime temps aren’t getting above 70, I put away the sandals.

    when I saw this, I clicked right over to Amazon and bought those jeans! I already received them (thank you amazon prime) and I love them. I wish the fabric was a little softer though.
