Real Outfit Roundup: Summer to Fall Style

by - September 16, 2021


I'm probably jinxing it, but it hasn't been as hot or as humid the past couple of weeks. Now, don't get me wrong, it's still way too hot for full-out fall style. Coat and jacket weather is still at least a month away! But I've actually been able to wear jeans a few times without dying, and I call that a win.

For those of you who are new around here, every two weeks I round up my daily outfits for you guys (or the ones I remembered to take pictures of, anyway). I try to share what I was doing the day I wore them and links to shop the exact or similar items. If it's something new, I'll give you a little review.

Sizing info: I'm 5'2" and weigh around 150 lbs. I typically wear a medium or size 6 in clothing and size 7 in shoes.

I'll be honest. I'm looking back at my calendar for this day, and there's nothing written down. So I don't know what I did that day. I do remember feeling really excited that this jumpsuit that I bought at the beginning of summer that didn't fit right now fits perfectly. Also, did you miss my post about styling a jumpsuit for cooler weather?


I wore this on a Saturday. This was the weekend we went shopping for fall decorations. This is probably my favorite dress that I own, which explains why you see it all over my Instagram all the time. I did have to cut the ties off the waist finally since they finally frayed to the point of barely hanging on by a thread. I also decided to throw on a black pearl-encrusted headband and my black flats.

This has been one of my most-worn dresses for the past two or three years. All I remember doing on this day is going to eat seafood for lunch. You can't see them, but I wore my new lilac-colored flats. There's a good bit of purple in the dress's pattern so it was an unexpected pop of color. Plus, I wanted to break them in before wearing them to go trick-or-treating as Daphne on Halloween.

Looking at my calendar for this day, wow. I was super busy, but I'm pretty sure I didn't leave my house. This darker yellow tank is one that I've hung onto for several years. It's got a pretty laser-cut pattern and is such a good fall color.

I wore this on one of my distribution days. It started out overcast and a little cool, but quickly warmed up to the upper 80s. Needless to say, I was regretting my decision to wear jeans by the time I was finished. I really love this cropped NASA t-shirt, though. It took me back to fifth grade when we did an extended field trip at Space Camp.

Are muscle tees still trending? I honestly don't know, but I'm not regretting adding this Beatles' one to my small collection.


I actually kept this on all day after having a self-led yoga session last weekend. I got this outfit as part of a collaboration with Starving Spirits. I've got two other sets from them and will definitely be buying from them again. These are the softest workout leggings and sports bras I have ever tried, but despite that softness they have a lot of support. Now, because I'm short, the waistband on the leggings come up a little too high on me, so I have to deal with some rolling, but it's minor. Best of all, I wear my normal size in everything, instead of having to size up.

Remember this dress from my Old Navy try-on post last weekend? Well, I didn't wait long to wear it! This is such a good fall color combo, but the spaghetti straps keep it cool for our extended summers. I added my trusty denim vest to give it a bit more of a fall vibe and decided to go for some subtle print mixing with my leopard sneakers.

Another perfect-for-fall color with this smocked peplum. It's so dang flattering, y'all. I will say that because I am smaller up top that some of my bras won't work, but even when it did slip a little there wasn't any cleavage. And these jeans are a great replacement for my other favorite ripped up boyfriends (that I won't be retiring until I absolutely have to). As for my shoes, well - I can't find anything even close, so no link for those.

I wore this for our anniversary lunch. As I said in last weekend's try-on post, this shirt is very see-through. I almost did brown accessories, but decided that I wanted to wear my black flats instead. Unfortunately, my shirt is only available in a few sizes so if you want it, better hurry!
