WIW: for fall weather

Fall is definitely in the air.  It was down to 38 F here last weekend (and less than an hour away got frost).  I love this season and this weather - warm in the day, cooler in the morning and evening, and chilly at night.

I think I have my fall/winter tops sorted - I've chosen several sweaters to bring up from the basement thrift store, and am excited about wearing them.  I'm still working out which bottoms will start off in my closet.

Here's what I've worn for fall weather the past few days.  I'm finding that my summer clothes transition nicely with warmer supporting acts too - at least until it's honestly chilly.

#1  My summer EF black drapey dress with a brown almost-bomber leather jacket and cognac loafers.  This looks frumpy in the pic - it didn't feel frumpy when I wore it, but then, I don't think I looked in a mirror.  Oh well.

#2 My summer tube skirt and fuschia (I think) mesh sweater.  These are all summer pieces, but I reserved them for A/C.  Our house is still at least that warm.

#3 A cream short-sleeved sweater with a big cable, and my target slouchy skinnies.

I also wore a black/brown/navy combo that I didn't get a picture of, but will have to recreate for feedback.  I think I liked it - but I never can tell until I see a pic.

All feedback and suggestions for improvement are welcome!

    I really like look #3, its a winning outfit. as far as looking frumpy in #1; maybe a different shoe? The dress and jacket look great together.

    Congratulations on getting yourself sorted for fall. I see nothing frumpy about #1. It's my favorite. Love the black with cognac, fluid dress with structured jacket and the loafers seem more modern than pumps or ballet flats.
    The second outfit looks beautifully polished, although I'd like to see the boxy top a bit shorter. The color is fab.
    #3: Love the fit of those Target jeans on you.

    Love your fall looks!  #2 gives me a few ideas for new outfits from my closet.

    As for #1 -- I love the outfit.  I'd suggest either oxfords or booties for shoes.  I suspect the ones you're wearing look better IRL -- they appear a bit slipper like.

    Love that brown jacket on you!

    Loving #3. What a super fun and modern look.

    I think #3 is really great on you. Great jeans!
    #1 for me could maybe just use scrunched sleeves and maybe a necklace for a completer piece. #2 looks on trend and I love that berry color on you.
