Everyone loves fall.
Football season, riding boots, apple cider, and J Crew sweaters. Yoga pants, pumpkin everything, camping and quilted jackets. I look forward to fall every year, but I’ve learned to manage my expectations when it comes to one particular seasonal stereotype: crisp weather.
You’ve heard of Texas heat, and you know the deal. “Crisp” just doesn’t happen for us. So I’ve learned to adapt. While I can’t pull out jeans and riding boots this weekend and top ’em off with a burberry scarf, I can play into the cozy hues of Autumn. And that’s exactly what I did with my favorite pair of Blake Love shorts.
Luckily for me, my favorite seasonal color is also my school color. Some call it burnt orange… I enjoy feigning fanciness and therefore refer to it as “rust.” (PS, feign is a great word to throw out there when wanting to be perceived as fancy)
I paired the rich, billowy shorts with a neutral J Crew button down, which, with a couple tucks, scrunches and rolls, molded into the perfect compliment.
Then I had fun with accessories! Lots of pearly, sparkly, and over the top prettiness because I love pearly and sparkly and over the top. (Don’t you?)
So if your weatherman has yet to predict “partly cloudy with a high of 70”, leave the fur coats for Pinterest and indulge in heart-warming hues instead.
Speaking of heart-warming, this weekend is Parent’s Weekend here at Texas KKG! You can bet I am thrilled for three days of shopping, eating, and being ridiculous with mom, dad, and little sister! They have been missed, and I don’t think Austin is going to know what hit it when they arrive. I hope you have a fun weekend planned (or not at all planned, because those weekends are the BEST) and I would love to hear what you’ll be up to!
As always, LOTS of love from Texas!
