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!

this rustic sweater’s design is quite flattering. when i purchased it, i wasn’t sure how i felt about it (when worn, it’s short on one side and long on another and sort of crops up as you wear it). wearing it with a bandeau skirt is the perfect solution. this skirt is slimming and can be worn high waisted, so the sweater sweeps over it perfectly. the accessories are a little odd, but somehow i think it works! a major must this season = sweaters and skirts! it’s a perfect way to make a rustic sweater a little more elegant!

shorts coupled with booties is probably one of my favorite combinations. luckily a “cold” front came through okc:), so i was able to wear these wonderful booties without much of a sweat. these chloe booties are soft as can be and fit like a glove. the chunky heel gives just enough support making these heels incredibly comfortable! as with any closet, the ability to remix pieces is a reflection of one’s style and it’s pretty much necessary to remix your daily looks (unless you have the means to shop continuously). this sweater can be thrown over almost anything (maxi dresses, tanks, long sleeved tops). see how i wore it last here. with it’s versatility and shiny, metallic fabric (a major fall 2012 trend), this sweater will make an easy transition to fall.
