A Carrie’d Affair Fall Style Favorites

There is just something about Fall that gives me ALL THE FEELS. If peonies grew in the midwest during the Fall season, I would be totally content without the other seasons. ☺️

One of the reasons I love the Fall so much is the clothing. Mainly because I can hide my lack of gym time. 😂 But really, what’s not to love about oversized sweaters & booties?!?

I found a few items that I added to the #acarriedaffaircapsule this season that I am really loving. Don’t worry I let go of a few items too. I am still 100% strong on keeping my closet completely manageable. If you haven’t checked out the #acarriedaffaircapsule series you can check out part 1 HERE. There is also a part 2 HERE & part 3 HERE.

Currently I am OBSESSED with ruffles and velvet and oh man did my go-to places to shop deliver!! 😍 The best part, all my favs are work wear appropriate, but can easily be transitioned to a night on the town. Not that I would really know what that life is about, but if I did…

Please note, some of the items are no longer available, so I provided similar sources for those. 

Shirts & Blouses

Ruffled tops with wide legged pants, jeans, pencil skirts, mini skirts, etc. basically anything. No joke, I love my blue and white ruffle top so much that I wore it twice in one week to work. The blue and white ruffle top I have is no longer available, but I found one that looks identical and half the cost. Win, win! I linked it in the look book directly below along with other ruffled items I am currently obsessing over. 👇🏼


Give me all the boots, booties, & mules!

These Royale Flats have quickly become my favorite fall-inspired shoes! They are easy to slide on & go with just about anything.

Tip: If you buy these exact shoes, I would recommend sizing down 1/2 size as they will stretch.

I linked some other fall shoes I am currently loving.


If you have been following along with me on my Instagram @acarriedaffairdesigns then you’ll know that my favorite color is green. Emerald green to be exact. So when I found these green trousers on major sale at Old Navy for $20 I was sold. They are currently $15.97  and come in multiple colors.

oh hey again! Side note, I got bangs! I do this every few years then immediately regret it because they are high maintenance. However, I’ve been told I look younger, so maybe I don’t regret them now. 😂

Now let’s talk about these fringed hem jeans! I am loving them so much I bought two pairs. 😍 I am curvy and have a very hard time finding jeans that I feel great in and these jeans checked all the boxes! I have wore them several times in the month I’ve had them. Definitely my new favorite jeans!

P.S. how amazing is this copper rose velvet tank?!? J Crew is on point this season. Well, I am biased because I love everything J Crew. 😍 But this velvet tank is AHH-MAZZ-ING! I wore this outfit on date night a week ago. I also wore it with a pencil skirt and oversized sweater to the office. I got several compliments on the color.

Well that’s it friends! Hope you found some inspiration to spruce up your wardrobe this season. Happy Fall, Y’all!
