TOP: H&M | SKIRT: Zaful | SHOES: Meijer | BAG: Lulu’s | EARRINGS: Nordstrom Rack (forgot the brand)
When I first paired these two items together I wasn’t initially thinking of fall. I just thought the skirt went well with the top because of the colors. Later on I realized that it makes a really nice fall transitional outfit. Here in Southern California it gets really hot in the fall so I like to wear more transitional outfits. It’s cooler in the mornings and evening and gets hot during the day. I like to wear layers and mix summer pieces with darker colors. I feel like this outfit works really well because the skirt and shoes are black. The floral top is a darker color combination with the background being black. The bag just matches really well because it’s black and has green and white flowers. It works because I can wear this in warmer weather but with the darker colors it feels more autumnal. I feel like floral is kind of controversial to wear in the fall but if the colors are deeper I usually love the look.
This whole outfit was super inexpensive. I found the t-shirt for $2 at H&M recently. The bag was marked down to only $10 from Lulu’s a few years ago. The shoes were also on sale, probably around $10. I got the skirt from a Zaful collaboration so I thankfully didn’t pay for it. Lastly, the earrings were from a Nordstrom Rack sample sale and were only $1! I love shopping sales and clearance. You can get so much more and still save a ton of money.
