Transition- Fall OOTD

express barcelona cami

The temperatures might still be quite high, but there’s no denying that our mornings and evenings have gotten much cooler.

There are few pieces in my wardrobe that always help me get through this transition period: light jackets, long cardigans, and blazers. Yesterday I was forced to do a bit of shopping (ran out of candles, can’t have that!) and so I thought that I’d show you what I wore.

zara biker leather jacketEver since I’ve discovered Gina’s blog earlier this year, I’ve become obsessed with Express, all over again.  She blogs almost exclusively about Express and features lots of outfit ideas, great articles about some staple pieces and I have to say that quite a few of my Express purchases were influenced by her. Like my top: this Barcelona Cami from Express is one of my favorite tops and I have it in about 5 different colors. It’s such a great top that can be dressed up or down, you can wear it with skirts, shorts or jeans. It’s great for wear during summer because it’s light, but it’s also great for layering and looks great with blazers and jackets.

My jeans are also from Express. If you follow me on Instagram then you probably know just how much I love their jeans. They are very comfortable and I absolutely love the way they fit me. I also always buy them short, which also gives me perfect length. I’m average height (5’6”) but their regular sizes are always too long on me.

My jacket and my little bag are from Zara. During this time of the year, I literally live in this jacket. It’s comfy and thin, but it’s enough to keep me warm during those cold evenings and mornings. I also get compliments whenever I wear it and everyone always asks me where I bought it. I got it well over a year a go, but this one is similar.

My shoes are from Guess. I got them ages a go, and they’re probably one of the comfiest pair of heels I own.


My over-sized sunnies are Burberry (similar here).

I still feel much more comfortable behind the lens than I do in front of it, but these OOTD posts are always a lot of fun to work on.

    Oh yay! So thrilled to see another gorgeously stunning OOTD from you Paula! Always love your edgy, super stunning fashion looks, and of course this beauty is no exception ;)

    Looking like the ultimate badass babe in your leather jacket, HOW gorgeous are those sleeves? I’m totally in love with the purple/pink hues to your look, they contrast so well with the denim and leather. Your bag and shoes are oh so pretty. And of course you are the prettiest thang; gorgeous curls, on-point MU, all round on fire babe alert :D

    I don’t know why, looking at these photos I suddenly got a flashback of meeting you for the first time when you went “OMG! Sophie!” Was definitely one of the best days ever, meeting you! I miss you love! <3 <3

      Aww Soph, you are seriously THE sweetest!! Shoes or a bag is probably as much of a pop of color as you can expect from me haha ;) OMG those curls took forever to create and they went all flat the minute I got into the car haha. My hair is so difficult to work with, but I’m not complaining! ;)

      Aww that’s so sweet that you thought that! It really was one of the best days for me too, being able to meet and chat, having that we live so far away from each other :) Thanks again Sophie, Love you!! :*

    You are so sweet! Thanks so much for the nice words about my blog! (And I just found and followed you on Insta too!) I guess it’s not too surprising that I completely love every detail of this outfit, but really, I do. Love the classic cami and jeans with the edgy touch of the leather jacket plus the fun pink shoes. Such a great look!

    I’m sure you get this a lot, but you look like Lucy Hale. I love Fall and Fall transition looks and this one looks so good, but that jacket! Damn! Those shoes are rocking too. Hot pink and black, my two favorite colors :)
