There’s something about flannel that makes me feel like FALL! I know it’s still August, but September is in a few days and I literally saw the leaves changing yesterday!! This look is great because since it’s still pretty hot out, you can feel more like fall with a flannel wrapped around your waist or put it on when you enter the AC in stores and the Subway.

Here’s a few tricks for getting the perfect flannel, at the perfect price. First, you want to definitely get a SOFT flannel so always feel what works for you. Next, in order to get the best price and fit I shop in the men’s section at a thrift store. I actually picked up this flannel at thrift store in Charlotte, NC on my last road trip to Atlanta for about $5!! If you’re not about the thrift store shopping, you can always pick up one at Abercrombie for still less than $30.

I’m such a sucker for anything SOFT, especially soft comfy shirts (and no bra). I usually don’t buy basic tees, with the exception of an extremely soft tee. This shirt is also my fave because it also has the off-the-shoulder look to it and it goes with just about everything. When you’re comfy, you’re going to be more confident, and therefore more beautiful!

American Eagle has some of the softest looking shirts in so many different styles, but the best way to find out is to feel them. I especially love the pocket on this top, this super soft tee in SO many colors, and this “I’d Snap That” crop!

Essential for Fall: Vintage Silk Blazer

blogger-vintage-outfit-nyc-streetstyleSweater: Zara (similar) / Skirt: H&M (similar) / Blazer: Vintage via PrettyProperQuaint Etsy Shop / Watch: Daniel Wellington / Shoes: Zara (similar) (similar) / Bag: Urban Outfitters (similar) / Sunnies: Asos

Today’s post is all about the vintage silk blazer. This is honestly the most comfortable blazer I have ever worn, mostly because of the silk! (it’s truly hard to part with it). How many blazers have you seen made with a silk lining? Plus – it’s perfect for office wear or dress it down for a chic streetstyle look.

I actually love pairing sweaters with pencil skirts for the fall, where it’s starting to get cooler but it’s still a little warm. The chunkier the sweater, the better (as long as you’re still comfy), like this blue sweater or this white one. This look is perfect for the office AND after work!

This actually was a work outfit for me! During the week, I rely mostly on work-to-out looks that can transition easily. Since I do work a typical 9-5 job and usually have plans after, I try to dress in a way that is cute for both. Usually the main item that changes the whole look is the shoes! For work, I wear more of a professional, chic shoe like this pointy tassel flat or a simple suede loafer. When I leave work, I usually try to throw on a more casual shoe like my go-to Zara platform espadrilles (similar HERE and HERE) to dress down the look.

I found a ton of cute items to pair with this blazer and get a similar look. Shop them below:

90’s Green Vintage for the Fall

blogger-streetstyle-outfit-inspo-vintageTop: H&M / Skirt: Vintage via PrettyProperQuaint Etsy Shop / Shoes: Cole Haan (similar) / Backpack: Danielle Nicole (similar) / Jewelry: Rocksbox + Catbird / Sunnies: QuAy Australia

This vintage skirt from my Etsy Shop skirt is the perfect piece to bring your summer look right into the fall. The material is a little heavier and can keep you warm during the cooler days. Since the skirt is a very bold green with a black checkered pattern, I paired it with a black crop top but you can also pair it with this off-the-shoulder black bodysuit which is makes a super cute look.

Bringing back the 90’s, I channelled 90’s pop princess Mandy Moore from her Candy video (watch in the “Play While Browsing” video). I tied a ribbon around my arm to give my bare arms a little more flare. The trick for this is to use a thick ribbon and to find the right balance between too tight (and not cut off your circulation) and too loose (not too fall off). Good luck babes!

Sometimes it’s so refreshing to be able to add such a BOLD color to your look. The green vintage skirt from the Adelaar Blouse Company is the perfect vintage piece to add to your wardrobe.

I picked out some cute black tops and shoes to help complete the look:
