September marks the end of Summer and the beginning of Fall. In the Bay Area September and October are still warmer months but with cooler mornings you can start to transition into wearing your Fall pieces. While I absolutely love the casual summer clothes, I look forward to being able to wear all of the chic pieces Fall brings. There is something so effortlessly chic about wearing comfy and/or chunky knits, skinny jeans, and boots. While I’m not quite ready for boots or chunky sweaters for that matter, I am all about layering some Fall pieces like this plaid vest from Gap. It’s a hand me down from my mom, well not really even a hand me down since I asked to borrow it, and I’m sure as we get deeper into September she’s going to ask for it back. On days when you want to stay bundled up in bed, this vest is a great alternative. I love the black and white plaid, always a winning combination, and that it drapes in front; very reminiscent of wearing a blanket, don’t you think? To keep this vest from not looking too casual for a sick day at the office I went for a nice pop of color with my green blouse and kept it otherwise neutral. Animal print is a neutral, I know I’ve said this before, and looks great with plaid. I definitely think this outfit makes me look waaayyy better than I felt!
