3 Generations of Fall Outfits with Soft Surroundings
Quote of the day: “Those who wish to sing, always find a song.” Anonymous
With fall right around the corner, many of us are excited to go shopping for some fall outfits! Either that or we figure out how to take what we have in our closet and make it work for the changing season. And as luck had it, Soft Surroundings reached out to the 3 of us to see if we’d like to showcase some items from their upcoming”Timeless & Transitional” fall collection.
If you haven’t heard about Soft Surroundings before, then you will love to hear that their philosophy is to #Livesoft by making it easy for women to take time out for themselves. They do this by providing soft-yet-stylish outfits that are amazingly comfortable in a one-stop-shopping experience since they also provide skincare and home decor!
The pants I chose for the 3 of us are considered 5 Pocket Pull On Leggings! The nice aspect of these pants, is they are considered leggings because of the stretch in them, but you’re really going to think of them as jeans! They are a jean material and thus heavier than your normal leggings. These have real pockets, yet, the interesting aspect is they pull up and down like leggings, so no zipper action.
If you tend to shy away from leggings because they are too tight, then you will truly appreciate these. They are not skin tight, and in fact ran a tad big! I consider that a good thing, since most of us don’t love to be poured into our jeans at this age!! The other wonderful feature is that Soft Surroundings does offer petite sizing! I know both Nancy & I took advantage of this sizing option for our jeans and therefore we didn’t have to shorten them!
What the 3 of us did differently when choosing our fall outfits were the colors we chose for our 5 Pocket Pull On Leggings! I have on the white pair, Nancy is wearing the Merlot pair and my mom is sporting the Marsala pair! There is also a denim version and a green pair available!!
I showed the back view too since everyone else you meet sees that perspective too! You can see how the jeans aren’t super tight. I will admit that at the end of the day, they felt like they were slipping down. So my advice would be to order a size down!!
For our selection of tops to wear for our fall outfits, we each received a different one! Soft Surroundings rates most of their shirts with a softness rating, so you can tell how it’ll feel against your skin!
My top is the cold shoulder top that does come in 5 different colors. I am wearing the Dahlia Red, which is what I would describe as more of a red-orange! All of the colors offered in this top have a very fall vibe to them! Because I ordered a petite in this also, the sleeves and length are shorter, so there isn’t the need for any alterations!! Now who doesn’t love to hear that?
And just so you know, I tried tucking in the shirt on one side only. I know many women don’t love the half tuck in the front, so I thought I’d try it on one side! What do you think?
I did showcase how to wear this top as a layering piece here.
For mom’s top, I did not order the petite version, but probably should have. Instead she ended up shortening the length about 2 inches, but not the sleeves!! This top now comes in ginger, black and blue!
Nancy’s top is called the Bermondsey Top, but I couldn’t find it on their site right when I created this post. You can always type in that name in the search tool, but here is a surplice top that has the same ruching on the side!!
I have to admit that there wasn’t a pair of shoes they offered that I didn’t fall in love with. Of course, I realize I have a shoe problem, but admitting it is the first step, right?
Since Nancy always loves the Southwest designs, I picked out the Taos booties for her! These come in the tan version like you see Nancy wearing or a grey version. And yes, the toe part of the boot is darker. It’s considered distressed, and it’s one of the distressed characteristics that seems very realistic!! My husband and I did that same distressing to a pair of his boots with shoe polish!
I told my mom that she could have these shoes only if I could borrow them occasionally!! These are the Ellenora Mules and also are available in a black version!! If you love this embroidery trend on your footwear as much as I do, you might also love Soft Surrounding’s Seychelles Lantern Booties!
My ankle booties are named the Calley Booties by Vince Camuto! I love that these have the cut outs on the side along with a bunch of bling! I thought these were perfect match with my white jeans since they are lighter in color!
Soft Surroundings also has a wonderful selection of jewelry available! Since each of us were wearing a solid colored shirt, I thought I’d accessorize each of us with a necklace!!
With my mom’s top, I thought this Devotion Necklace would be a great addition. It blended in well with the colors of her outfit, yet the gold pendant makes it so it doesn’t get lost.
Nancy’s neck candy was something I fell in love with the moment I saw it!! You may see it on me in the future too!! That’s the advantage of living close to my family—swapping opportunities!!
The necklace is called the Serengeti necklace and is quite the statement!!
My Amulet necklace I chose so that it would blend in and stand out all at once! I rationalized that the bead around the neck sorta matched my top, while the pendant stood out more since it was black!
