PLEATED SKIRT, GRAPHIC TEE, DENIM JACKET - FALL FASHION






Fall is here and I realized in a hot minute that I hadn't done an outfit post in the blog! Right now, the weather in KC is a mix of warmer days and cooler mornings. The perfect mix almost. So light layering and I am good for the day.

One of my favorite outfit combos in Fall is to pair a skirt, graphic tee, and a denim jacket. brownie points if the skirt is a pleated midi skirt. I have such a weakness for everything pleated, as you had seen in my last outfit post on the blog. It just elevates any outfit, I believe. This yellow pleated skirt is an oldie but a goodie. I had probably bought it three years ago when I was outfit planning for a season of Kansas City Fashion Week. Have worn it also for a few other special occasions, and this skirt has always been a conversation starter. Since this season for KCFW has been a virtual one, I still needed a few outfit posts on my blog. 

Graphic tees are another favorite, as I love pairing them with shorts and a blazer, or denim or skirts. They are that fun element in your outfit. This particular graphic te is a new one, and a special one, as it was a Mother's Day gift from my children and their dad. 

Whenever I write about fashion/style or outfit planning on my blog, I always mention classics. A classic is a wardrobe staple, that you invest in, and which sees you through years/seasons. They are versatile pieces, which can be styled so many ways. A denim jacket is one such classic wardrobe staple, I believe everyone should have in their closet. The one I am wearing here is a slightly cropped version, but I do also have a slightly oversized, boxier one too. 

Outfit planning is all about maintaining the balance of volume. Which in simple words means, if you have something voluminous, pair it with something more fitted to offset it/ to complement it. In this case, the flowy skirt is complemented by the fitted jacket. 

Let's talk accessories, shall we? Since it is still warm, I decided to wear espadrilles. If it was cooler, I would worn leggings and booties with this outfit. Some silver earrings and some deep plum lipstick - MAC Rebel! 

Last but not least, is the location chosen for these photos! I usually used to take outfit photos in front of the red brick wall, in front of our older home, or in front of the taupe colored garage door. I know garage doors are a universal choice for bloggers for taking their outfit photos. Till my friend and fab photographer, Bodhi ( Bodhipix on Instagram) asked me to think beyond the garage door. So here is a try in taking some pictures in my background, with the last of the late summer blooms. I shall keep experimenting a bit more with locations close to home.

    It looks fabulous paired with and complemented by the medium blue denim jacket, 'Dog Mom' graphic T-shirt, and the pretty plum-coloured lipstick. Pretty OOTD!
