blazer <h&m>, top <fei>, skirt <vintage>, booties <topshop>, necklace <from blue seven>

these are my new favorite pair of booties.  their tapestry embroidered print is unique and draws so many compliments.  they are versatile and can be dressed up or down.  they are comfortable to boot!  i bought this leather skirt at a consignment store with a redline price of $4.  it was below-the-knee in length and looked pretty frumpy.  i deconstructed the skirt, shortened it and came up with this far cuter, up-to-date version.  i struggled to find shoes to complement the skirt.  leather shoes wouldn’t quite work (too much leather).  these booties are perfect!  to top off the look, the cobalt blue blazer adds a pop of color; blue and tan make a perfect pair anyway.  for winter, tights and a fur jacket will work well with this leather skirt.  can’t wait to wear this thrifty thrill again.  talk about a good investment!

top and heels <zara>, trousers <h&m>, bag <botkier>, bracelets <variety>

who knew florals could be wearable in the cold fall and winter months.  traditionally they are a spring and summer pattern.  with this season’s trends including dark floral prints, these trousers are perfect for an evening out.  with a small structured bag and pointed pumps, i feel well coordinated for an evening out.

sweater and blouse <j.crew>, trousers <7 for all mankind>, boots <chloe>, bag <hype>, sunnies <ray ban>

these are the perfect days to be outside for a little sightseeing.  it furthers my appreciation for nature’s vastness and puts into perspective just how much there is to see of the world. plus, the weather has been perfect; a little chilly, but sunny enough to forgo a true coat.  in this setting, i blend in quite well, except for the touch of red.  this is my favorite sweater for the fall season.  i adore the little french hen on the front (for the record, this is as close as i will ever get to one)! this sweater is so close to my heart.  i can’t wait to wear it all season.  happy monday!
