SURPRISE! Welcome to Eclectic Energy, my new (and hopefully improved) website. For all of you who liked rachelspross.com, you guys are gonna love this. I have lots of fun, new stuff coming y’all’s way! I’ve got plans for editorials, videos, and a brand new feature coming soon that I’m calling Ask Rachel (more on that later).
It has taken me awhile to figure out exactly what direction I wanted to go with my blog. I’ve finally decided on more of a combo of an online magazine and a blog. There will still be plenty of stuff on my own style, but I have chosen to focus more on my love for fashion as an art form. Hope you guys enjoy! I will be keeping you all updated on the new stuff, but for now… Let’s talk about this outfit.
It can be difficult to dress oneself during the month of October here in Texas. You want to look appropriate for the season, but at the same time you don’t want to be uncomfortably hot. This outfit is the best of both worlds. The warm colors (especially this wine/red color) and general aesthetic of this look scream fall. These shorts are suede which makes them look more appropriate for this time of year. The top has three quarter length sleeves, but is made out of a very sheer fabric and attached in the middle with just one button allowing for maximum breathability.
Shoes really affect the feel of an outfit. These booties are what make this outfit just right for fall. If I had paired sandals or wedges with this, it would have looked much less like fall and a lot more like summer. Moral of the story: splurge on some cute booties for this fall/winter. They are everywhere this season and they go with just about anything. Wear them with shorts, skirts, jeans… The possibilities are endless.
Unfortunately this top and this exact pair of booties are no longer available. BUT I’ve linked up a couple of tops with a similar vibe and the same booties just in a different color. Happy fall and happy shopping! I hope you guys dig the new site. Let me know what y’all think. And stay cool… Literally.
