Fall-ify White Pants, 5 Ways

Happy after-Labor Day!  Despite our “big” summer trip only being a driving one to places a few hours away, I really feel like we’ve sucked the life out of this summer with experiencing so much right in our backyard.  Because we’ve been busy doing so many fun things, this summer has really flown by, and I feel like my white pants haven’t really gotten a fair shot at life (also see: there is no way I’m wearing them while spending multiple hours in the car).

Because I am a rebel at life, behold, White Pants After Labor Day, 5 Ways!

(Also, my boots?  All of them?  Have mysteriously disappeared.  I remember packing them away in our attic before summer started – so, you know, about 6 weeks ago – but cannot for the life of me find them.  So they’re notably missing from these pictures.  You can just imagine them into a few outfits, especially the last one.)


A plaid button-up immediately screams fall to me  I love the look of the red with the bright white.  Add a cross-body, some oxfords, and some subtle pattern-mixing with argyle socks and you’re ready for a day at the park.

Date Night

My mustard cardigan is another fall staple.  I love pairing it with gray, and the pretty, sparkly belt, gold necklace, and yellow heels step it right up for a date night out.

Business Casual

This would probably vary based on your place of employment, but I know that when I was working, this outfit would definitely work, especially on a Friday.  The blazer steps it up a notch, but the bright color keeps it firmly in the mom-realm if you don’t have anywhere special to be.  Plus, red/white/black always looks classy, in my opinion.

Back to School

I’ve loved watching my Instagram feed light up with all the pictures of cute kiddies heading off to school.  This outfit would be perfect for meeting with a teacher – looks put together and clean but not too formal.  Add in a gorgeous fallish scarf and some owl socks, and you’re set.  Plus, oxford booties?  Yes.

Brunch with Girlfriends

The big, cozy sweater, loose top, and big bag are perfect for a long and lazy brunch with friends.  Here’s where I meant to include boots, but you can just add them in your head.
