Fall Inspired 30 Second Outfit

September 28, 2017

Ok real life. Most mornings I wake up to a little angry lion barreling into my bedroom. Ok, so it’s just my 4 year old, but he never seems to wake up “chipper” and these days he is sporting a legit mane. Sorry, just can’t bring myself to cut it. Ok rewind, the baby wakes up first, I bring him into my bed, feed him a bottle and fall back to sleep holding him, and then the lion enters. Half asleep, he insists on holding the baby, and I lay there getting punched in the face for the next 17 minutes until I tell myself, “Self, if you would just get out of bed you would stop getting punched in the face.”

Sometimes my early morning self is not that logical.

I stumble into my bathroom, realize that I too, have quite a morning mane, and with a quick glance to my phone realize, that I have t-minus-not-much-time to get everyone dressed, fed, lunches made, and out the door. Myself included. And this my friends, is the beauty of fall. If you have a boot and a scarf, you can pretty much make any outfit that much better. Here is one of my favorite fall inspired 30 second outfits….

The Motherchic wearing sole society booties

Sole Society makes some of my favorite boots and scarves (and bags and accessories). All of their pieces are  classic, comfortable, and reasonably priced. I decided to take a basic jeans and a tee outfit, and style it with two boots on opposite ends of the spectrum – a bootie and an over the knee boot. Watch this effortless transformation…

30 second outfit – easy as pie (which you might even have time for a bite of before walking out the door). Is there anything better than stealing a bite of left over pie from the fridge. Note to self: don’t write blog posts when hungry….


What, really, is there to say? Booties are the quintessential shoe of fall, and this one is just as about as good at it gets. The perfect neutral, buckle detail … goes with everything. Add a cozy blanket scarf and a simple earring, grab your keys and go.

Over the Knee Boots

To make an over the knee boot more approachable for daytime, we love a flat heel and a lighter shade. OTK boots are a boot elevated, literally, and add a touch of wow-factor to any look. Play this up or play it down by pairing them with a cozy oversized knit. We even love OTK boots with a dress or mini skirt an a sweater.

    Wish it would cool down here, still too warm for my scarves but I could make this outfit work if it cools down 10 degrees (91 degrees today). Very cute and simple outfit!
