Well, Texas, it’s beginning to feel a lot like Fall. And as I’ve said before, I do like to try new trends, but definitely on a budget. Hence, I’m sharing my Fall Denim Guide for all budgets below. My insta gives you an inside look at how I style some of these on a regular basis, so don’t forget to follow along. Just last week I shared these Zara finds in this post.
Best Investment – Frame Denim
Best Budget – Zara / Everlane / Levi’s
Best Fit and Price – Madewell, but I still like to wait when these go on sale
I’m still not ready to fully accept summer is over. And luckily for me, I don’t have to because I live in Texas again. That means I have to accept this weird weather time gap where it feels like summer and it shouldn’t be this hot.
That being said, I fully support keeping those transition pieces in your closet still. And the number one essential fall wardrobe investment is a denim skirt.
I purchased this skirt at the beginning of the summer (Insta looks here) and it’s become clear to me that it’s not going away. It’s perfect to pair with a cute silky blouse to turtlenecks and sweaters. I can totally see myself adding booties to make it more of a fall outfit than summer. See how I’ve paired it right now since it’s still hot as H#LL with full links.
To tell you the truth, I first wore this skirt (from Zara) for my college graduation with an awesome crop top to match. At the time, it felt like a risky decision to opt for a skirt and top combo instead of a super cute dress for graduation, but who wants to wear what everyone else is wearing?
It’s stayed a staple in my closet ever since and I’m happy to share other pleated skirts on a budget for ya’ll.
Happy to answer your shopping questions and continue following me on Insta if you don’t already.
