This Simple Fall Outfit Sparks So Much Joy For Me

To know me is to know the following: if I buy it, I'm wearing it. And then I'm wearing it again. And then again and again after that. And after what's seemingly felt like nearly two years of nonstop loungewear sets and chunky socks, it's pretty safe to say my knitwear game is stronger than ever, only matched by my plethora of thrifted men's button-up shirts and leggings. And before you're quick to call me "basic," let me explain.

I don't know about you, but with holiday meals looming around the corner, my desire to put on "real clothes" is becoming less-and-less desirable by the day. All the while, tossing on a men's button-up shirt just seems like a much easier life decision, and, of course, what better way to style it than with a pair of leggings that snatches you in all the right (or wrong) places!

But when I talk about leggings, I'm not just talking your average, run-of-the-mill pair of leggings, you know the ones with leftover lint balls stuck to them from the dryer, or even better, the ones you haphazardly throw on at 7 a.m. to walk the dog. No girl, I'm not talking about those. I'm talking specifically about the pair that took you months to find. The pair that made you think twice before purchasing them. The pair that can easily be worn with heels for date night and keeps the curves attached and intact. That's the pair I'm talking about!

Whether you opt to keep it classic in a simple ankle-cut pair, go a little more street style with a front slit, or tap into your inner equestrian with a stirrup style, these leggings aren't just leggings. They're lifesavers! So here's how I'll be styling leggings and button-downs this fall, and not only do these combos make me feel happy, but they also keep me feeling stylish without doing too much, if you know what I mean.
