Here they are: 12 stylish fall outfits!

… plus a few beauty faves and some home inspo ⭐️

In this post, I’m excited to share some easy styling tips, my favorite fall fashion and home trends, and what caught my eye from a recent trip to New York City. So, here they are: 12 stylish fall outfits that you can wear for any occasion. I hope you like them!

Since many of you are new around here, I thought I’d do a proper introduction!

I’m Susie, and I’ve been a retail girl since high school, working at Nordstrom in various roles including a decade-long stint as a buyer and another decade as a personal stylist. What I’ve discovered is that we all have the same concerns: does my bra fit properly, should I be using Vitamin C serum, am I too old to wear that, how can I not look tired, can I wear ripped jeans … the list goes ON AND ON! I feel that it’s my duty to share my experiences with you, as well as those of thousands of women I’ve had personal conversations with in the dressing room over the years.

I have a passion for the business of fashion, and for helping women get dressed every day. And, I’ve had many interesting meetings with the creators and founders of worldwide brands who have given me an inside perspective that I LOVE sharing with you through this blog!

When I started my website, So Susie, it was initially to share street style inspiration so we could all get ideas on how to put together great outfits. But, it has evolved into much more than that. Now I have combined the skills I learned as a buyer, along with dressing room experiences, to share the latest trends and too-good-to-miss items that are bound to sell out. And, how to put them all together to make great outfits! Thank you so much for following along, I’m really glad you’re here! 💕🌸


What to wear if you’re going out …

Frame blouse | Mother denim | Cinq a Sept blazer | Sandals | Gucci bag

A few pieces you can always rely on, like coated denim, a good blazer and strappy sandals, makes going out even that much more fun! I love this Cinq a Sept blazer – it comes in black and ivory – and is perfect all year round. The sleeves are scrunched and it’s nice and relaxed, making it ideal to wear with denim. Frame coated denim is also a favorite — check out the new Le Sylvie Slender, and see more options here. The Schutz sandals I’m wearing are really versatile and surprisingly comfortable. Silky blouses work all seasons as well, and this Frame style is available in the leopard print, as well as ivory and black. It’s a good one!



Everyday casual outfit

Treasure & Bond sweater | Madewell skinnies | Golden Goose sneakers | Dior bracelets | Givenchy bag

This is the perfect running-around-town-for-errands outfit. This comfy, thermal knit sweater is is comfy and cute (and finally back in stock) and it’s only $59!! I’ve worn these Madewell skinny jeans for several seasons, and I still love them — they’re kind of a gray/black ash wash with slight distressing (I sized down in these). Add Golden Goose sneakers; though they’re a big splurge, they truly make every outfit. For an affordable option, these Sam Edelmans are really good too!



Style boards — my happy place!

I love making style boards, and these happen to be from the most recent “Fall Capsule Blog Post.” They’re an easy way to think about outfits because you can “see” how everything goes together. Remember, any piece can easily be substituted for something you already have in your own closet.



Go-to travel outfit

Rag & Bone blazer | Mother Dazzler jeans | Golden Goose | Paravel suitcase | Beis weekender bag | Hat | ATM t-shirt | Gucci bag

Talk about a comfy and stylish travel outfit! These Vuori joggers are simply THE BEST! Not only are they great for travel, but they’re a go-to all year long. Last year, I wore the Moncler sweater jacket the entire time I was in New York, and since I’ve been back in Portland it has been on constant repeat. These Rag & Bone sneakers are a classic, retro style and look great with denim. I also recently added this lightweight long-sleeved Zella tee, which comes in several colors — I highly recommend it! Check out the latest travel video here and here.



Home decor inspo

I’m always working on my home design, and love adding seasonal finds to share with all of you. Right now, I’m in the mood for cozy throws like this mohair throw, and pretty plates like these cabbage dinner plates.  Last year, I purchased this Balsam Hill Christmas tree, and I can’t wait to get it out again this year. I have this Anthropologie mirror in my office, and it makes the space so pretty. If you’re thinking about the holidays already, check out this wreath and these cute stockings.



Reels outfit video is here!

Rails top | Mother denim | Vince sandals | Paris tote

Every week, I share Reels Videos on Instagram, sharing how to put together easy outfits. It’s so much fun for me, and many of you seem to like it too! I’ve dedicated a section on the website where you can find all the style boards — check it out here. This past summer on the way to London, I posted this Reels video that went viral — much to my surprise! Check it out here.



The pant you’ll want to wear 24/7

Vuori hoodie | Vuori jogger

I’ve talked about the Vuori jogger nonstop for the last few years, and it has pretty much been my go-to comfy pant. You might be thinking “I already have workout pants.” That’s good, but that’s not what these are for! Yes, they’re made from performance fabric, and yes they are sold in the active department. And likely the Vuori brand would tell me I’m wrong, but you probably can work out in them 😂 These joggers are best sellers because you can style them several ways, and look like a cool girl out and about running errands or hanging with friends. They’re also perfect for travel.



6 style tips for easy, everyday outfits

Theory jacket | Turtleneck | Black denim | Dior shoes | Chloe bag

I think it’s safe to say that many of us want easy outfit combos. We want to confidently throw on a great outfit every morning, without having to think too much about it. Accomplishing this can be tricky, especially if you like shopping and get easily sidetracked 😉 Who hasn’t experienced finding a cool new “something” and not really knowing how to wear it — but you buy it anyway? After I wrote about essentials here, many of you wanted to know how to make more outfits with what you already own … so this post has 6 tips for easy, everyday outfits!



Weekend fall outfit

Abercrombie & Fitch fleece | Golden Goose | Denim

Throw on this comfy Abercrombie fleece with some faded denim and Golden Goose sneakers (or any white sneaker you love) and you’ll be ready for a chill weekend!



Beauty products I love

Green dress | Tom Ford Rose Prick | Gucci perfume

I love sharing beauty products that I use regularly! One of my favorites is the Colleen Rothschild Cleansing Balm, which is like a mini-spa in a jar — it leaves your skin smooth and fresh. I can’t live without the AmorePacific cushion compact, which I apply over the Armani Luminous Silk foundation – the best! I have a love affair with fragrance, and my current favorites are Tom Ford Rose Prick and Rouge Baccarat 540. Click here to see other posts related to beauty, including my everyday makeup.

Trench & distressed denim

Distressed denim is a great way to make a classic coat not so … classic! Trench coats are everywhere again, and I’m loving the more relaxed styles. Here are a few favorites below.
