October is here, can you believe it? Just like that, we are on the tail-end of 2023. And with that, one of my favorite seasons is here as well – fall! Fall is only the beginning of all that comes towards the end of the year. Holidays galore, family time, football season, and so much more. Because there is so much going on at this time of the year, that also means that there is so much to dress up for! Occasions such as family photos, heading to events like the pumpkin patch, or even apple picking. And of course, so many life events continue to happen in the fall as well. Events such as fall weddings, date nights, and even heading off to work. Because there is so much to celebrate and to dress up for this month, I’ve curated 30+ outfit ideas for the fall season that are included in this month’s lookbook. These outfit ideas include timeless, classic, and elevated looks for all the different events and occasions that will fill your calendar this October.
The pieces in this lookbook were selected because they can be styled in many different ways. Including pieces that can be styled time and time again was intentional because my hope is that even if you just add one new item to your wardrobe, that item will become a go-to in your closet. So, let’s get to styling!
