This fall, keep it simple.

Fall is finally here. After some unusually warm weather here in Chicago, the seasons have changed. With that change comes scarves, sweaters, and light jackets. Cider, pumpkins, apples, and Halloween here I come. This outfit features a scarf from Old Navy $9.00 on sale, a hand me down jacket (free), and a white sweater ($9.00) originally from the Gap purchased from ORT resale shop in Highland Park, IL . My jeans were from Crossroads Trading Co. in Chicago, IL. The skinny jeans are originally from Gap but I purchased them for $7.00. I paired these elements with some flats, but a pair of boots would have worked well too. New fall clothing does not have to be complicated or expensive. Pair a basic sweater with jeans and a unique necklace/scarf. Have a jacket that you can wear every single day. By wearing basic solids/neutrals, you can change up one outfit to look different each time you wear it by rotating bolder accessories (such as this scarf), rather than having a bunch of prints and zany colors that do not match too many of your clothing items. This fall, keep it simple.  Total Outfit Price: $25.00 (with shoes $45.00).
