Back To School Style

I know many of you probably aren’t going back to school and some of you may be but let’s face it Fall is always a good time to add a new spice to your wardrobe. 

Fall is about the layers and that is why I love it. I love the ability to add textures and colors and wear three pieces on one day just for your top. In college I was loved wearing my retailored plaid shirts with a gray hoodie and green chunky sweater paired with my favorite dark wash jeans, sperry’s, and ooo yeah my messy just rolled out of bed hair with my geek glasses. I never bought clothes when I headed off to college because I didn’t care too much (also shopping was better there than it was at home). 

Now that I am out of school and realize that your employer and clients don’t want you dressing like you just rolled out of bed and old plaid shirts (even though they are cool right now). Instead they want the polished with a little edge. They want us to look like just maybe we thought about what we wore this morning. 

So even if you aren’t going back to school let’s just say it’s Back to Fall instead and find some new pieces to spice up your summer closet that will help you bridge the gap from one hot summer to a beautiful perfect fall and eventually into the cool months of winter. That is what Fall clothes are all about. 

I am a big fan of a few pieces for fall:

1. shoes that breathe
2. a good pair of jeans
3. a classic blazer
4. fun cardigans
5. fall colored jewelry (gold, orange, yellows, dark grey…so on)
6. Textured tops

So I chose some pieces from below that are available right now in fall lines that can work for almost anyone to help bring your wardrobe into Fall this year.

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
