Feels Like Fall (See Jane Wear)

Clearly, it's not fall yet, but the weather has some other ideas.  It was so cool out today that it really threw me for a loop.  Coincidence would have it that Refinery29 Chicago asked me to pick out five must-haves for fall.  Here are a few outfits that I wore showcasing a few of the items (you'll be seeing them again, come fall, I'm sure) like red pants and military-inspired outerwear while doing some major mixing and matching with other items currently in my closet.

J Crew sweater, Pitaya red jeans (similar), Dolce Vita loafers, Chloe bag, EJ sunglasses
Old Navy sweater, vintage skirt, F21 necklace, J Crew shoes, EJ sunglasses
                                                        J Crew skirt, H&M shirt and belt, F21 necklace, Old Navy vest

My favourite piece is the old navy vest - prefect with jeans or a dress and so good for autumn!

I've been craving fall forever now. I like each outfit quite a bit, but I could never pull off the vest. It looks good on you, but I just cannot imagine it on me!

I love the vest and the red pants outfits, but I am really looking forward to wearing an outfit like your short-sleeved sweater and skirt combo. I have all the pieces, but I can't seem to make it work. I'll get it by fall ;)

I wish it was fall already! It's been way to hot in Croatia this summer and I can't wait for the fall to come so I can start wearing all my fall clothes :)
You look great in all the outfits, especially in the last one :)

Love your choices, lady! And as much as I am all for fall fashion, it feels like we've barely had a chance to enjoy summer...Chicago, go figure.

Love these looks; I'm actually getting a little excited for fall... Could it be the overdose of hot weather the Midwest got this summer?

Just found your blog, and how could I have been missing it all this time! Gorgeous, you and your style are gorgeous! Thanks for making the interwebs more lovely. I'll be stopping back :)

Sarah H said...

So cute! Great Fall outfit ideas! I've been searching for the perfect pair of red jeans (at a reasonable price) and have really been struggling. I may have to just break down and buy designer since it looks like a style that's going to be sticking around past summer.

Alicia said...

Loved your R29 feature - and YAY for fall I'm so excited... I'm not really a fan of summer but maybe that's bc we don't get a summer in SF. xx

Amy Creyer said...

I was SO HAPPY for you when I saw the Refinery29 email in my inbox! You should have been featured in the blogger story a month ago, it's unfortunate that our schedules didn't work out.

This is actually a much more amazing and impressive feature since you have 5 photos all to yourself.
