I know it’s totally corny to wear puppy dogs on any of your clothing, but when I saw this Pug Sweater (similar) last year at Banana Republic I couldn’t pass it up! Sometimes things just resonate with you, and even if they aren’t “cool” or trending they’re your style…that’s what this pug sweater is for me!

I mean come on: it’s wearing a hoodie! So adorable, and I’m always a sucker for a graphic. Then this season I found this midi coral skirt and knew the two were a match made in heaven! Here is how I styled a summer-ish skirt with a puppy sweater for fall:

Don’t lie. You know that dog is too freaking cute!

I felt this outfit already had so much going on with the patterned shirt, graphic sweater, and bright color…all I accessorized with was a delicate tassel bracelet.

Button-downs are great for fall. They are so versatile: wear them alone or layered! Remember I wore this Windowpane Top by itself…yup same shirt.

The slit and loose silhouette of this skirt make it so comfortable and easy to move around in.

Tip: When layering with loose silhouettes tuck in your shirt(s) to create a waistline and present a flattering figure.

Whenever I layer a sweater and button-down I always expose the button-down’s cuff. It creates interest in the outfit and, in this case, added a pattern.

This outfit was so much fun! The layered sweater kept me warm, while the coral color allowed me to stand out! I love this sweater no matter how cheesy it is…
