Fall Transition Look: Oversized Cardigan + A Simple Dress

Can you guys already tell that fall is my favorite? I'm desperate for the leaves to start changing colors. I just want to wear so many oversized cardigans and sweaters all day long!

Burgundy is one of my favorite fall colors. You'll see plenty of it on me as we get more into fall.

To transition into fall, I'm all about covering up one thing while leaving another revealed. For example, I chose to cover my arms to keep them warm and cozy in this cardigan; but it's still warm enough outside that I feel comfortable in a dress with bare legs (sans tights). 

I love this very simple dress from Forever 21, and it's actually pretty warm. I wanted to keep things very simple with this look by adding the baggy sweater in a pop color, flat ironing my hair, and adding a simple bootie & very simple necklace. 

I also wanted to play up my red hair with the burgundy cardigan by adding a more purple/darker lip color. I'm currently obsessing over this color (Prague by NYX), and will likely be wearing it a lot this fall and into the winter.  

I love the way this feather almost looks like a it's saying, "Okay fall, we are ready for you!"
