My favorite part of fall: the color palette! Mustard, Mustard, Mustard. I like to eat it. I like to see it. I love to wear it (the color that is, not the condiment even though I often do)!

That’s why I spent my first day of fall in a mustard dress.

Being the start of autumn, it’s a little chilly outside. It’s still possible to wear dresses, but you definitely need to layer when possible. I paired this dress with an oversized denim jacket to keep warm. This is my favorite jacket, lightweight but still does the job. And when it warmed up through the day I just draped it over my shoulders to stay cooler.

I accessorized by layering 2 charm necklaces. The first a delicate gold astrology of the Pisces constellation (my boyfriend’s sign). Then, a longer necklace with a gold fortune cookie charm (I love fortune cookies).

I topped the look off with a tan studded clutch, just big enough to hold all I need but not too large to lug around as I explored Bochum.

Bochum is a city of walking; so I wore my tan Nike Air Max to match the purse. Since it had been a little cold I wore some longer socks to keep my feet cozy.

This layered look was perfect for the mild chilliness of the day.

Show me how you layer on a chilly afternoon! @_ablankspace_
