Style Session: Horse Sweater and Plaid Skirt

This is officially my favorite look for fall. Now, I know fall just started and I'll have lots of more looks by the end of it...but I get the feeling that this one is going to be on constant repeat.

I've been in love with the look of this horse sweater ever since J.Crew had something very similar a couple seasons ago. I was never able to find it in my size and it was always out of stock. Imagine my utter delight when I spotted this virtually identical option for less than $25 at H&M. If you want this sweater, I would run...not your local H&M to get it. It's perfect, and I doubt it will last long.

This adorable plaid skirt is also from H&M. It's fleece and feels incredible. The length makes it perfect for rocking knee high boots during the fall. 

I loved the idea of wearing this sweater with this skirt, but I wanted to be able to see the horses on the sweater so I couldn't tuck it in. That's when I got the idea to do a "mini tuck" in the front of the skirt so that the look is a little more relaxed and chic rather than ultra preppy polished.

Of course, it had to be accented with a chunky pearl necklace.

I wanted to add just a little accent to this look, so I decided to rock my burgundy knee-high socks underneath my boots. I cuffed them at just the right spot so that you can see just a little peek-a-boo of the burgundy popping out of the boots.

I just love the overall look of this outfit. It's easily going to be one of those fall looks that I'm going to want to go back to over and over again. But the best part is that each piece is amazing all it's own and I will be able to mix and match them with different pieces throughout the fall and winter. Plus both the top and skirt are really affordable! Bonus!
