“Autumn leaves don’t fall, they fly. They take their time and wander on this their only chance to soar.” — Delia Owens, Where the Crawdads Sing
One of the patterns that I like to keep throughout the year, is florals. For fall and winter, I tend to go for the darker florals and this square neck blouse from LOFT features beautiful feminine/romantic details, including long sleeves with puffed shoulders and elasticized cuffs that finish with a ruffle at the wrist. The button details are functional as well, so if you like to layer for warmth, you can add a tank underneath and forgo the sweater to really let this top have its moment.
While I went with skinny jeans for this look and tucked them into my booties, you can also wear dark wash boot-cut jeans. My pointelle sweater is a Stitchfix find, which is still available in quite a few sizes. I went with my usual size, XS, and as you can see the sweater has an oversized fit.
I kept my jewelry simple for this look with my favorite floral necklace from Minimalist Magnolia, the Small French Twist Huggies from STUDS that I’ve been wearing on repeat since I first discovered them last year, and my Corda Friendship Bracelet from Monica Vinader.
