So sorry for the lack of posts! School, work, FIT classes etc. have me so busy & I am still working on finding time to blog. I think I have a good system figured out to keep everything here on Empire Styles running smoothly! Now onto today’s post… 

I was invited to participate in the Feeling Fall Linkup from the super sweet Carrie of Carrie on Blogs and the linkup is being hosted by Carrie, Jamie & Laura. This linkup is all about styling a scarf outfit for fall, which I think is the perfect transition into fall item. This outfit post is actually an outfit from my vacation to San Francisco, but its a super basic outfit that I’ve been coming back to and wearing similar versions of since I’ve been home. 

Blazer: Forever 21 | T-Shirt: Urban Outfitters | Scarf: Urban Outfitters | Jeans: J. Crew| Hat: Boutique in San Francisco | Sunglasses: Ray Ban | Bag: Michael Kors | Shoes: Sam Edelman | 

Aaaaand….. some linkup questions:

What is your favorite fall trend?

In terms of “practical”, every day trends, I would definitely say knits. I am such a huge sweater person because I love the versatility they have. Layer them with a chambray shirt or flannel, wear them under a vest or jacket, with a scarf, dress them up or down… the possibilities are endless! 

In terms of more street style and higher fashion, my favorite fall trend is definitely the midi. I have been talking about the midi since the spring when I saw it first come into popularity and it has only grown since. I love the way a boxy crop top looks paired with the perfect midi skirt. While this is one of my favorite silhouettes and outfits, this is not an every-day outfit that I see myself wearing often… but if I am ever invited to a fancy gala or event soon? You’ll see me in a midi. 

What is your favorite fall Starbucks drink?

Pumpkin Spice Latte… duh. 

But they are seriously so good. If you’ve never had one, all the hype isn’t for nothing… Go try one ASAP! 

If you could only wear one pair of boots for this whole season, which pair would they be?

I just picked up a pair of Ralph Lauren riding boots from DSW (under $200… score!) that I have been living in lately. They are so cute and also super comfy.. basically everything I am looking for in a boot! They are pretty simple, a nice medium brown color… Not super dark but not too light either. There is a thin belt around the ankle with a small amount of gold detailing, but nothing too extravagant which is exactly what I like. 

What is your favorite fall activity? 

100% baking pumpkin and fall desserts with my sister and host-sister! Last year, we had a whole day where we baked all sorts of pumpkin goodies from pumpkin bread pudding to pumpkin cheesecake poppers to all the Pinterest pumpkin recipes you can find! It was such a fun day, and everything we made was beyond delicious. We are, of course, doing it again this year, and adding to the recipe book… In my opinion, the more desserts the merrier! 

Thanks again to Carrie, Jamie & Laura for hosting such a great linkup & happy fall everyone! 

XO, Nicole

  1. Thank you! The blazer was like $20 from Forever 21… It was such a great buy.. inexpensive & totally versatile! And the hat… I was so intimidated when I bought it but I kind of love it at the same time. I was SO excited when I found those boots at DSW. I had been on the lookout for cute riding boots for a while and these were exactly what I wanted… at a great price! Thanks again for hosting such a great linkup! XO, Nicole
