Patched Up in Fall Colors

Even though fall is near,ย I haven’tย abandoned my summer favorites yet. Those of you who know me know that I’ll wear a skirt or shorts over pants any day. This lovely patchwork a-line skirt from Abercrombie was on sale, and I had to snatch it in my size! It caught my eye because it has all the perfect fall colors — tan, burgundy-brown, and olive green. These are my favorite colors to wear in fall — along with white, black, and grey. This embroidered top from Hollister featuring delicate hints of orange paired with the skirt is a match made in heaven. I don’t know about you, but it gets me in the mood for Thanksgiving! ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay, so when I said that I got this skirt in my size, I lied. It’s a size 0, and it feels aroundย two sizes too big on me. Oh, the struggles of being a 23-inch waist. That’s the real reason why I’m wearing a thin belt to cinch the waist tighter… but let’s just pretend I never told you that! It’s totally an intentional style addition… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyway, I really liked the skirt, but wasn’t able to locate any 00’s on the racks.ย Despite this,ย I’m still pretty happy with my purchase. I look forward to wearing it with over-the-knee boots when it cools down! ๐Ÿ™‚

I recently got this pretty burgundy shoulder bag from ElleJay from their fall collection. It’s so perfect for the new season and goes perfectly with this autumn-themed outfit. In the second to last photo, I’m wearing the newest addition to my ring family: a lizard-dragon ring! I stumbled across it at Hobby Lobby, and it also happened to be a reptile mom/friend’s birthday, so I bought two; one for her and one for myself, of course! It’s completely adorable and I haven’t seen anything quite like it anywhere else!

  1. This is such an incredibly beautiful and well styled outfit, girlie! I love all the pieces and together, they look amazing! I’ve yet to add a patched skirt to my collection, but I’m definitely looking to, especially after this post! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!

    1. Thanks, Jalisa! This one from Abercrombie comes in a blue patch style too which I didn’t see in store but it’s available online! You should look into it ๐Ÿ˜‰ hehe

  2. Wow, the lighting in these photos are INCREDIBLE! You look amazing, hun. Love how you styled the embroidered top with the patchwork skirt — this look is just perfect for autumn! Hope you’re having a great week so far ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  3. Gorgeous, Sharon! You seriously take the best photos. This set looks like it’s straight out of a magazine! Can’t believe the top is from Hollister and the skirt is from Abercrombie. I’ll have to check the stores out again some time soon!! Thanks for sharing xo

    1. Thank you, Christine! I love shooting at sunset because it makes my photos look so vibrant, and I felt it was perfect for this intro-to-fall look. Thanks for stopping by <3 xo

    1. Hi Eva! Thanks for stopping by! The skirt is super cute, so I had to make an exception of my “don’t buy it unless it fits perfectly” rule. I’ll probably get it tailored soon so that I can wear it comfortably without a belt in fall ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

    1. Right?! I was quite surprised to see it at Abercrombie of all places, and in the sale rack too! It’s such a perfect fall staple, especially in LA because it doesn’t usually get too cold in fall here (or so I hope this year!). I definitely plan on wearing it with over the knee boots and a sweater in fall ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a struggle having a tiny waist — I actually never work out so I’m not sure why I’m not getting fat. I swear I’m eating and being a couch potato during the day ๐Ÿ˜› Thanks for stopping by sweetie <3 xo

    1. Thank you Felicia! So glad that we can relate! I love summer so much as well and quite frankly, fall and winter aren’t too exciting to me… though they have their perks. For example, I miss wearing over the knee boots and cute sweaters. It’s still too hot in LA to be wearing those right now, but in the mean time I’m totally enjoying being able to wear shorts and tanks all the time ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for reading hun <3

  5. You are the queen of golden hour girl! Keep slaying <3 Love reading your blog. You have the best photos!! xx

  6. That skirt had me at hello when I saw your picture on Instagram! This is such a perfect summer-to-fall outfit. Thanks for inspiring! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you, Christina! The skirt is still on sale and also comes in a blue color too ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d snatch it in your size while you still can! You won’t regret it ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. I’m obsessed with that top! So sad Hollister doesn’t have it online but I’ll have to check the stores soon. Hopefully they still have it! Thanks for sharing your style <3

  8. You are the definition of perfection, Sharon! Love the work that you and your boyfriend create together. He is so talented in photography!

  9. Been following your blog for a while now and this look is by far one of my favorites. Just curious — what lens do you use to shoot? These photos came out so beautifully. Props to your bf for taking such great photos of you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you Jeanie! So kind of you! The photos you see here were taken with a 50mm lens but he likes to switch things up every so often so we’re not committed to just one ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Love this outfit on you! The colours in the skirt are perfect and your photos are incredible. You look beautiful as always! Love your posts!!

    1. Thank you! I love the skirt a lot too! So much that I ended up getting it even though it was technically a bit too big for me lol. Will definitely have to get it tailored so I can wear it with over the knee boots this fall!

    1. THOMAS! Thank you so much ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re too kind! You finally got a blog! Can’t wait to check it out. I remember we were talking about it a while back with Claire lol. Thanks so much for stopping by! Heading over to yours now ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have a lovely weekend!

  11. I could have sworn I commented on this! I couldn’t find a comment from me but if I did well… I love this look that much! I just pinned it! It’s really perfect boho style! The patchwork skirt is one of the best I’ve seen! You are bronzed and glowing and who ever takes you pictures knows what their doing! LOVE
