Autumn-Inspired Looks that Are Simple & Bold

Autumn vibes are upon us. The beginning of this season can be interesting because it can be cold and hot in the same day. Today's outfit reflects that duality while also incorporating edgy gold necklaces to the look with this obelisk pendant from AUrate. This geometric bar pendant necklace is wearable at two lengths and manages to be both simple and bold at the same time: duality.

You might remember from my 6 Easy Ways to Give Back post that AUrate uses sustainable production standards and that they donate a book for every piece of jewelry sold. AUrate also has obelisk earrings and short and long gold bar drop necklaces that are similar. So if you like this necklace or the ring that I wore in my other post mentioned above, then check out AUrate and give back while you shop!

It's been one year since I moved to Atlanta, and I remember the weather being particularly great in this month. But it's still early fall, so that means transitional pieces are our best bet. A cardigan sweater and jeans will work in the morning, but something a little more lightweight will be your friend in the afternoon. That's why I've opted for this look, which features a pair of high-waisted cargo ankle jeans (they were buy one, get one) and a cut-out bodysuit that's 50% off. Pro tip: NY&Co sizing is totally off. Everything runs big so I'd recommend sizing down, especially with the pants. Would you believe me if I told you that I'm wearing a size 0 here?

Another Way to Wear

The best thing about these cargo jeans is that they look great paired with biker or combat boots (that's how I first wore them) or with chic heels. Biker boots will give you that stepped out to get a cup of coffee and now running errands look (I actually took these photos right after getting a chai at Starbucks). They're the comfortable yet edgy alternative. The heels would be reserved for when you take these jeans out for a date night or event. For this look, the shoes you pick will most likely depend on your mood, though.

In Other News

Since last we spoke, I've seen a few movies (The Kitchen, Hustlers), had a game night, went tubing with the family, saw an improv show, got a new tattoo (can you spot it in these photos?), experienced The Void, and walked in a puppy runway show for charity to name a few. To truly keep up with what I'm doing in real time, I'd definitely recommend watching my Instagram Stories (that's usually how I keep up with you guys, too).

  1. Is the new tattoo on the upper arm? Around the elbow? I would have never thought to wear cargo denim, but they look awesome!

  7. You look fabulous rocking those NY+Co high-waisted blue denim work jeans styled with the black cut-out back bodysuit. Your lipstick, nailpolish, and hairstyle look pretty, and I also like the look of the sunnies you were wearing.

  12. I love your tattoos, and how perfect this outfit is for fall! Do those jeans stretch out after wearing? I know you said to size down, and I'm just curious how many sizes down I should go... Thank you!

    1. I've worn them 3 times and they haven't stretched yet. But I'd still recommend sizing down at least one size

  13. I really love how you paired more simplistic, minimal jewelry with a bolder, edgier outfit. Clever girl! It sounds like you've been up to plenty of fun recently. I can't tell which tattoo of yours is new, but maybe I haven't paid enough attention in the past to notice the ones you already have. Oops!
