Transitioning Summer Wide-Leg Pants Into Fall

Comfortable, on trend, and under $15. My black linen-blend wide-leg pants have been such a summer style staple. See them worn on the blog before in the Wide-leg Pants Under $15 post.

I certainly plan to wear these linen pants for as long as the weather permits, especially since they’re so easy to style for fall. For today’s look, I added fall layers in grey and burgundy, a couple of my favorite autumnal hues.

It’s not too cold for sandals just yet, so my J.Crew buckled mid-heel sandals got a run in this look. On a much cooler fall day, I would likely reach for a chic loafer or a pointed-toe flat.

My grey cardigan (Banana Republic option) has been such a useful piece in my wardrobe. I got this particular style at Loft about five years ago, and it’s still in perfect condition. I’ve worn it so much too. Remember this navy and grey ensemble? That’s one of my favorite color combinations. I’ve also worn it with dresses. Remember how the cardigan helped ready this shift dress for fall?

Today’s images were taken at one of my favorite living green walls in my neighborhood. I wanted to photograph the wall before the leaves start changing color and eventually fall off. Want to see how it’ll look later? Check out these two posts from last fall shot at the same location: Sweatshirt Style and Sweater Style.

I’ve been shopping for a new tote for about a month. I knew I wanted a bag in a burgundy or wine color because that color goes with everything and always looks quite luxe in leather. After browsing several options, I narrowed the choices down to the Madewell Transport tote and the Rebecca Minkoff Unlined tote because of their classic, simple, and chic designs. I loved the more low-key look of the Madewell tote, but it was just too large for me. By the way, I got the Rebecca Minkoff bag at 15% off by signing up for emails at the Rebecca Minkoff site, a pop-up offer that’s always available.

      Thanks so much, Brittany! This hair is the result of two-strand twists (really big ones) with bantu knots at the ends. The bantu knots at the ends gives that curly look that holds even when the rest of my hair puffs out due to the elements. My hair was first stretched by blow drying it. I might do a hair post on the style soon.
