the autumnal equinox was yesterday so according to the calendar, it is officially fall, y’all! now anyone in southern california knows that true fall weather doesn’t arrive until late october/early november, but that won’t stop me from planning out some cool weather ensembles to sport once the chilly temperatures arrive! because one can never be too prepared for the highly anticipated #sweaterweather, right?!
i snagged this coatigan from mango last fall and sadly it is no longer available, but i’ve linked similar options here, here, here, here & here. this year, mango came out with a hooded style in a cream color and i just couldn’t resist, i ended up grabbing it, too! what i love about these coat/cardigan hybrids is that they are the perfect weight for our mild fall/winters. as a native san diegan, i don’t own any heavy coats since it never really gets that cold even in the middle of winter. therefore, a thick floor-length knit is all i need to layer over everything from a t-shirt to a pullover sweater depending on how low the temperatures dip. the quality of these particular coatigans make them perfect for dressing up or down and i kept that in mind as i put together the outfits below -there is an outfit for every occasion!
in addition to these photos, i capitalized on naptime (and freshly curled locks) and filmed a speedy styling video showcasing the five outfits in action. the video will be up on my IGTV channel this afternoon. in the meantime, you can browse the pieces using the links below or via the liketoknow.it app. happy fall, y’all!
p.s. our dresser is from ikea.
