I love the yearly ritual of swapping out sweaters for bright maxi dresses and tees in the spring. Throwing open my closet doors each morning to see all those pops of color is always such an uplifting sight! Here are a few lovelies I’m itching to add to my warm weather shopping list – helloooo pineapples!

ModCloth recently asked me to share my rendition of the perfect outfit for autumn, AKA The Best Season of the Year, so of course I jumped at the chance to do a little virtual shopping! Remember that Friends episode where Joey wore everything in Chandler’s closet all at the same time? I often felt like that while trying to recreate cool outfits I spotted on Pinterest/magazines, but with a bit of trial and error, I think I’ve finally gotten a handle on staying comfortable without looking frumpy :-) Here are my ModCloth building blocks for a polished layered look:

1) This basic black top is the perfect base layer for a fall outfit. You won’t have any added bulk from sleeves, and the faux leather collar gives it a little extra oomph.

2) Next up, this unfussy soft gray tunic – its swingy shape won’t make you feel like a stuffed sausage, always a plus in my book!

3) Top both of these pieces off with a big comfy cardigan like this one in a classic checkered pattern that immediately makes me think of fireplaces and romping through piles of leaves. An open sweater is much more accommodating when you’ve got a few layers on, plus it’s the only socially acceptable way to feel like you’re walking around wrapped in a cozy blanket all day.

There you have it! I hope you liked the outfit I put together, and be sure to check out the great selection of tops and cardigans over at ModCloth!

It’s hard to choose what I love more about The Heiress Atelier – their beautiful rings or the clever way they show off said beautiful rings. Wingardium Leviosa! #harrypotternerd

Isn’t this such a pretty color palette? Love the nautical feel of these dainty baubles from Porcelain and Stone, which are all handmade in Somerville, MA – my old college town!
