The saying goes, life is what you make it.
I like to think clothes are too.
At a Life Is Good event in the spring, I spotted this terry beach hoodie with Lauren. We gave each other "the eyes." The eyes that mean, "I CAN ALREADY SEE ALL THE OUTFITS I'M GOING TO WEAR WITH THIS." Over the summer, I wore my hoodie to the beach and on cool summer nights but what I was really looking forward to was including it in my fall wardrobe. With its heather grey hue, relaxed fit, and roomy hood, it's the perfect piece to execute the sporty chic trend.
I tucked my hoodie into the front of a high-waisted fit-and-flare skirt and paired it with my new go-to boots for a sexy/sporty (and super comfy) look. To brighten up the black and grey palette, I added my favorite gold chain necklace and a pop of fuchsia on the lips. Roll up the sleeves to showcase some cool arm accessories (I went demure with a black and gold, geometric watch) and you have a sophisticated outfit that stands out.
A mini-skirt paired with over-the-knee or thigh-high boots is great for fall because you get the playfulness of a short skirt without sacrificing warmth or feeling too uncovered.
