I still haven’t fully come around to fall but like it or not, it’s here to stay.
Every morning my husband and I have the same conversation as we begin our day:
“What’s the weather going to be like?”
“High of 68° but it’s 42° right now.”
First off, for my Canadian and European friends, thats a little over 5° Celsius. Secondly, for my cold blooded friends who never get a high 42°, I know it’s not frigid and that it doesn’t require a parka, but it does require us to be smart and creative with our outfits for the day. Here are a few outfits we layer for fall to survive a typical day from early morning to the late afternoon with an active toddler.
Look 1: Cute Onesie + Warm Sweats + Button Down Shirt
This look is timeless and effortlessly cool. The base of any great layering outfit is a cute onesie or tee and since Julian’s favorite sign is ‘more’, this onesie has become an instant fave in our home! Pair that with some warm sweats (these from June + January are so soft and cozy plus the color is so fun) and a versatile button down shirt (this one from Zara has lasted for the past 9 months and still looks brand new!) and you’ve got yourself an outfit that’s perfect for a slightly chilly morning and can be pared down for a warm afternoon.
The real trick to layering is starting with that first key layer, and to help you get there Sonny Tees is offering 15% off of their gorgeous products through the end of Halloween!!! Their onesies would make a perfect stocking stuffer or gift for the fashionable little in your life! Just go to website and use the code MOMDOTCOM for 15% off.
Look 2: Cozy Sweater Coat + Cute Onesie + Lined Leggings
This coat has now lasted us for a full year. Sure, we had to roll up the sleeves last year but it looked just as cute then as it did now. These leggings are also a fave of mine. They’re lined which makes them extra warm and are also so chic they go with everything!
Look 3: Neutral Jacket + Patterned Hoodie + Jeans + Cool Onesie
My mother in law got Julian this jacket from the Gap for $1.00. We’re all about the sales!! It’s light enough to wear throughout fall with a cute onesie underneath and is great to layer over a fun hoodie, like this one from Tea Collection that I got on sale at the end of last season. Throw in a fun pair of jeans and a onesie with an oh so true message (this one from Sonny Tees says “mama said there’d be days like this”… Ain’t that the truth??) and we’re ready for anything the season sends us!
Bonus: Don’t forget the accessories!!!
Every great outfit is made even greater with the addition of a few key accessories. The perfect vest, hat, gloves, shoes, and even that perfect pair of socks can make the simplest outfits memorable. The best thing about accessories?? You can usually find them for a great deal so you don’t feel bad stocking up! Never underestimate the power of an irresistible hat!
