The Lovely Lookbook: Fall Colors

The Lovely Lookbook: Fall Colors

The Lovely Lookbook Button

Welcome to The Lovely Lookbook, a monthly link up to share your style and find outfit inspiration!

Our goal for The Lovely Lookbook is to help women of all shapes, sizes, and styles share their looks and find new outfits based on the theme of the month.

For each Lovely Lookbook, Sarah and I will share our height and the size of clothing we’re wearing as a reference to help show you how to dress your body.

We hope you’ll join us! We want you to share your style to inspire others, and if you’re trying to figure out your style, we want to help you look and feel amazing in your own skin and clothing!

October’s Lovely Lookbook features fall colors, and here are our looks:


I love that Sarah chose the neutral gray and cognac to pair with her bright pants. This outfit just feels like fall, you know? :) She’s so petite, but always doing things that make her look taller, like the v-neck cut of her sweater, and the half-moon hemline of her top. That creates an emphasis on her tiny waist, even with a little bit of a slouchy sweater. Adorable!

Sarah’s top here is a size small and it’s a hand me down. Her pants are size 4 from Target. The boots are Chinese Laundry from Nordstrom. She’s 5’3″. 

For my look, I wanted to pick colors that I haven’t paired together yet, so I opted for this olive green and rich burgundy. It’s been really hot here still, so I’m grabbing light weight pieces in fall colors to cling to the hope that it really will FEEL like fall soon! I added a few neutrals to balance out the unexpected color combo. Leopard is a go-to for me when I want to add a little more interest with a neutral. Because it’s made up of neutral colors, you can treat it like one even though it’s a print.

Greater Than Rubies

This top is a size medium from Old Navy, and the pants are J. Crew via The Clothes Mentor, and a size 4.  The cardigan is a small from Old Navy, and my shoes were on crazy clearance at the Cole Haan Outlet ($50 down from almost $200.) Don’t you love a deal like that?! Oh! And I’m 5’11.

So there you have it, two looks featuring fall colors styled differently and for two different body types.

Let’s see yours! Oh! And a little reminder from us to y’all! We wear all kind of sizes to make sure we can get the fit of things right. Every designer’s sizing is different. No one else sees the size on the tag, and if the items fit, all they notice is that you look put together! Don’t be held captive to a size.

A quick reminder of how The Lovely Lookbook will work:

The link up begins on the 1st of every month. So, on the 1st, visit Greater Than Rubies or Tucker Up to link up your styled item. We want you to share your style and/or find inspiration from how others styled their looks. Feel free to link up as many looks as you’d like. If you wear fall colors every day for the next two weeks and want to link up each one, awesome. Just one? Perfect. If you aren’t a blogger, feel free to just stop by for some inspiration!

The link up will run for two weeks (today’s closes on October 14th).

Also, from the 1st through the 14th, you can vote for the next month’s topic. (Starting today, you’ll vote for November’s.)

On the 15th of every month, we’ll do a recap post and announce the following month’s theme.  All we ask is that you link your post(s) back to both of our blogs (Tucker Up and Greater Than Rubies) or grab our buttons from our sidebars. You don’t have to follow us, or give us your first born child to participate. :)

If you Instagram, you can use the hashtag #thelovelylookbook to share your style for all to see (or get people to vote for the theme you want next month!) and follow us @TheLovelyLookbook if you like! We’re so excited about this opportunity to showcase a bunch of different ways that women style items they already own!

Now link up those fall colors, browse for inspiration, and cast your vote!

What do you want to wear and see styled for the November 1 Lovely Lookbook? PS We are having trouble finding a poll that works across WordPress and Blogger. If you know of one, please let us know!

    Love both of your classic looks. Burgundy and gray are my two favourite colours for this season and I’m seeing them everywhere too. Linked up two of my posts with both of these fall colours here:) Thanks for hosting.

      I’m so glad you did, Marta! I agree- gray and burgundy are two of my absolute favorites! They’re perfect for the summer to fall transition.

    Found you on today’s link up for TransAtlantic Blonde! Love that you had the opportunity to guest post on her blog. That’s an awesome idea. The polka dots you are rocking looks great. On this particular post, I love the idea of the fall look book. I just might link up! Thanks for hosting and guest posting :)

    I’m currently obsessed with combining deep greens and burgundy. I think it really captures fall without looking too boring or too bright. I love how you styled it with a little bit of leopard print, such a great touch!

    • Caitlin Author October 6, 2014 at 9:26 AM

      Thank you, Nadia! I totally agree with you. Hope your week is off to a great start!

    Hi there, Caitlin! I’ve been so busy lately but thanks to your ingenious Lookbook here I’ve been able to link up quite easily with a comfy momma style outfit that I wore on Saturday! I love your blog and your chic every day style. You are such an encouragement and inspiration! Hugs!
