Easy Fall Transitional Outfit Formula
As I’ve mentioned before, for ease in dressing, sometimes I turn to “fashion formulas” – simple equations for creating easy-to-replicate looks. Well, as my mind turns to fall while the temperatures linger in summer, I’ve been turning to this equation as a happy medium:
Off-The-Should-Top (with longer sleeves) + Ankle-length Skinny Jeans + Classic Pumps = Fall Transitional Look
It’s easy, comfortable, and chic. In fact, it’s been my everyday look four times in the last two weeks. I’ve substituted different tops and jeans and shoes but stuck to this general equation frequently lately. Moreover, if I’m being honest, I’ve actually worn this exact look twice in the last week! Don’t judge.
Fashion Formula Details
Let’s break down this fashion formula, shall we?
My Exact Look
In case you like any or all of the exact elements I’m wearing, here are the details:
- First of all, I went with the Tanya Taylor ‘Nessa’ embroidered off the shoulder top. The embroidery detailing is just fabulous! Plus, the material itself is a bit on the heavier side, as compared to some of my other off the shoulder tops, making it ideal for transitional wear.
- Then, for my jean selection, I went with these 7 For All Mankind ankle skinny jeans. I love the light patchwork details. Plus, the ankle length is great for showing off your shoe choice.
- Speaking of shoe choice, I opted to wear some older Valentino pumps that I’ve had for years. Even though I’ve had these for four years or so, I still get compliments on these each and every time I wear them. That’s the definition of a classic piece.
The great news, though: Even if my exact look isn’t precisely your preference or in your budget, you will be happy to know Nordstrom has something for everyone! Don’t you worry – Nordstrom to the rescue. The beauty of shopping at Nordstrom is the breadth of the offerings, both in terms of style and price range.
In fact, one brilliant aspect of fashion these days is that it’s actually quite stylish to mix high end and lower priced items. So, when you see a look you like, maybe pick one piece to splurge on. Then, you can complement that high-end piece with bargain finds.
So, without further adieu, let’s take a look at options for each piece of the equation. Take a browse, and let me know your favorites!

Houston Street Art
Finally, how cool is this new mural in Houston? It’s amazing in size and scale, and in its execution. Furthermore, I love the abstract look and the watercolor effect.
Big kudos to my friend and photographer Maritere Rice for scouting this out for us! She loves color and murals just as much (if not more!) than I do. We absolutely love the thrill of the color hunt.
While I don’t currently have the location and artist details available, we will share those details – and much more Houston street art details – very soon…
In conclusion, thanks as always for visiting Wear + Where + Well! And have a great Monday.
