Because I HATE cooking (although I have been doing it much more often now that the hubs is in med school) and I am loathe to think about it unless I have to do it, I thought I would share my favorite fall FASHION recipe. It’s 5 ingredients and simple to do for everyone!

day 13 blogtober

I’ve actually highlighted this lovely lady as my “model” before, but her outfit is so perfect, I have to use it again. Ya’ll give a shoutout to Kelly from Kelly In The City [insert round of applause here]


This outfit is (1) The reason I love Fall and (2) Insanely easy to throw together and still look pulled together.


Original recipe makes 1ย serving, but can be combined with other ingredients for unlimited variety
  • One (1) Long Sweater or Tunic
  • One (1) Scarf (can substitute regular scarf for infinity if you have no infinity scarf on hand)
  • One (1) Pair of Leggings (you can also substitute skinny jeans here if weather requires)
  • One (1) Pair of Knee High Boots (ankle boots also work well in this recipe)
  • One (1) Large Tote
    • You can add the following option ingredients for added style:
      • Oversized Watch
      • Armful of Bracelets
      • Sunglasses
      • Headband

PREP: If you already have items on hand, should take no longer than 5 mins

COOKING [i.e. Styling]: Depending on level of perfectionism, between 10 to 20 minutes

READY IN: 30 minutes tops


ย (1) In your closet, locate first a pair of leggings that you love.

  • Can be a variety of colors or styles, but will need to somewhat work with the later ingredients
  • Ensure thickness in fabric to avoid any accidental underwear reveals



(2) Next, find an oversized sweater or tunic that is in a complementary color or shade

  • Make sure bum is fully covered if wearing leggings, optional if wearing skinny jeans
  • Any type of long or flowy top or sweatshirt will work
  • Us tall or busty girls may need to size up



(3) Grab an infinity scarf in a pop of color (if you’ve done more muted colors until now) or a neutral (if your sweater/top is your pop of color)

(4) Slip on a pair of knee high boots
