More challenge outfits for fall accessories and jeans

This time the jeans are dark olive full length with a leaf motif necklace that was my mother’s and wider leg dark denim jeans with orange and a leaf motif small silk square scarf. The felted wool orange jacket was thrifted last year. It is Petite Sophisticate and I will put on black or dark brown snow boots if I go out in 5 or more inches of new snow. The silk striped orange top is cold shoulder but worn over black silk long underwear. I will keep the jacket on.

    The leaf necklace is especially beautiful! The olive outfit makes a great canvas for it.
    Very pretty scarf and fun to add the smaller leaf pattern to the striped pattern of the blouse. The orange colors look great on you. The jacket looks like a real quality item - what a nice find. Clever to wear the cold shoulder style with long silk underwear.
    I admire how you always wear seasonal accessories and outfits relating to the current seasons. I often forget to wear the “right” pieces in time. Now, I took out a large butterfly pendant I should have worn in the summer :-) I hope it will get better once I have finished putting all my things into a digital wardrobe - than I can make correct categories for the different seasons and will not forget some pieces.

    Katerina, your butterfly pendant will fit right in with the monarch butterfly migration and Day of the Dead.
    It took me years to sub divide my wardrobe. I will wear my warmer fall items until Thanksgiving when holiday clothes and accessories will move to the front of the closet and jewelry display. After New Years in January, the deep winter stuff and snowflakes come out. Right now this capsule is sadly lacking in color and pattern. I did add a striped sweater, winter white pieces including booties, and a long deep green cardigan. We will see what I feel I need. January neutrals are welcome after the brights and glitter of the holiday.

    The leaf necklace is special and you wear it well, Joy. It's lovely with the olive pullover, scarf and layered pendant necklace! Perfect colour match. If I were styling you, I'd leave off the cotton jacket. 

    I like the combination of outfit #2 a lot! I'm not convinced the jacket and top fit that well though. But that might be because of the phone pose and odd stretching movements. What do you think?

    Both outfits are beautiful. I can't choose a favorite.

    So fresh and pretty! That orange jacket is perfection! And I love the leaf necklace. it’s beautiful with all of them green shades.

    I agree with Angie about outfit 2. Something about the orange blouse’s lines doesn’t quite work with the jacket. It seems like the front of the shirt blouses out while the jacket is trying to nip everything in. But it could be the phone angle.

    Beautiful necklace, you have beautiful skin too, lovely complexion for it to accent.

    Angie and Katurah, I agree that the jacket in the first outfit looks seasonally confused and the top under the orange jacket is hanging strangely. It is a fuller top than most.
    Angie, my mother had matching leaf clip-on earrings for the necklace but I don’t know what became of them. Thank you, Bonnie.
    Jenna thank you for complimenting my skin. It looks a bit more freckled in the photo than in real life, I think.

    I was gonna say how much I liked the olives, but then that red jacket - ooh, snazzy!

  • JAileen replied 1 year ago

    I love the leaves necklace and the shades of olive.  I wish I could make that outfit!

    I find #1 and 3 especially lovely. Colours, prints and accessories that somehow reflect the season, even in a subtle way, often look so pleasant.

  • Debbie replied 1 year ago

    I love that necklace. It is a special piece.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Rachylou, snazzy is high praise.
    JAileen, I am wearing almost all the olive I have here.
    The Cat, I love using leaf prints and jewelry this time of year.
    Debbie, yes this necklace is special to me. I remember my mother wearing it and it made her eyes look especially green.

    Beautiful necklace! Agree that the pieces in the last outfit don't quite work together. 

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Shevia I tucked the top into my jeans on the last outfit and it helped.
