what i wore

Oct 31, 2013

What??? Two outfit posts in one week... yup, haven't done that since my fashion blogging days over at Girl & Closet. I'll be talking a bit more about this "personal style renewal" on Monday and sharing a personal & telling post about why I took a break from it all in the first place. So, stay tuned!

For now though, let's talk clothes. Yeah?! This is a classic "on the go" look for me when I want to feel polished but don't want to think too hard about what to wear. Which, let's face it, is most days! A great pair of skinnies & heels always seems to do the trick. How can you not look put together, right?! Also, how cute is this Old Navy sweater? I love the leather trim on the neckline and pockets + it's just so darn easy to wear. I've been wearing it with everything... my tulip skirt & booties or with my boyfriend jeans & flats. Total fall coziness!

  15. Oh my gosh , this is the most autumnal-looking place to do an outfit post I've seen on the internet this year, and blimey, that's saying something!!!

    You always look so elegant to me, V, and I especially like this outfit. You're right - a good pair of skinnys and a nice heel and you're good to go. You have a gorgeous figure and sleek hair too, so you look super-well put together in my book! Beautiful!



  16. i just had to peep those skinnies, thought they might be leggings but was surprised they're really denim. i've been trying to find something like this forever! love the look you put together here, it's the perfect casual combo and my gosh do i ever dig your jacket as the finishing touch!

    your attention to subtle detailing is fantastic V, i always take away several inspirational tips on each and every visit :) and oh how i'd love to go leaf crunch crazy in those colorful mounds of goodness! xo
