Fall Layering

Blouse, Sweater, Tights, Bag and Booties (c/o) T.J.Maxx
I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it!  With fall, that is.  It may help that I’ve spent the last few days in New York bundled up like an October Eskimo, but I’m finally getting into the swing of things with a bit of chill in the air.  Of all the fall looks I’ve done so far for T.J.Maxx (See: 1 Look, 3 Ways; Fall Trend: Leather; and Mixed Prints / Mixed Media), this week’s layering challenge is definitely my favorite.  There’s really nothing better about fall dressing than layers and layers and layers.  While layers done right are one of my favorite fall looks, no one wants to look like the Michelin Man waddling through the cold, so proportions and fabrics are key.

My look started when I found this seriously cozy cashmere sweater dress (slash tunic).  (Side note: It’s a little short, but with super opaque tights, it’s just long enough.  It’ll also be great with leather leggings this season.)  The fabric is lush and amazing, and I love that’s it’s light grey, a pretty unexpected color in my fall wardrobe.  A lightweight blouse added a little something to the neckline without adding an extra layer of bulk, and I love the gold chain necklace tucked under the collar.  I added a bit of color to the look with this Southwestern-style cape.

Fully layered up top, I figured I should probably get some bottoms.  I’ve never been much of a tights girl (can we say pain in the…), but when I saw these “fleece-lined” tights, I had to try them out.  I am now a total convert.  These are the most comfortable (and warm!) tights that I’ve ever tried, and they stay up without my pulling on them a hundred times a day.  (Not a good look I’ve decided.)  They’re super opaque, which I love, and ultra affordable, so I’m thinking I’ll be back for more pairs before winter.  Finally, I rounded out the look with comfy black booties (super T.J.Maxx score) and a favorite black hat that definitely made the trip with me to New York.  (Bad hair day?  Problem solved.) 

I of course rounded out the shopping day with a loop through the beauty department and had a rare sighting of one of my favorite perfumes for a seriously sweet deal.  No brainer there, yes ma’am I’ll take it.  (And T.J.Maxx gets me again.)  I’ve had a blast scooping up this year’s fall trends with T.J.Maxx, and I’m so sad that it’s coming to an end.  Question is, have you checked out T.J.Maxx lately?


Expressing yourself through fashion, and knowing how to put together a great look—at great value, is what being a Maxxinista is all about.  At T.J.Maxx you can score the unexpected to make your own personal style statement. Here’s to rockin’ your real deal.
