I can’t get enough of this scarf! After pairing it with bright red yesterday, I wanted to play off the blue in the plaid — and this outfit was born. And who’d have thought these blue heels would become a closet heavy-hitter for me? It seems I wear them almost once a week (proof here and here). I have the feeling my plaid scarf is going to become a surprise staple, too. I love it when that happens!

Thank goodness Friday is here! Can I get an amen? Nothing like a little plaid and wine-colored pieces to get the weekend started off right. This plaid blazer has been in the back of my closet since last winter, so I was happy to bring it back out for the crisp fall weather. I paired it with a top-handle bag to add some ladylike-ness to the outfit. Oh, and my beetle ring? I couldn’t find it online, but you might be able to find it at your local Old Navy (less than $10)!

After trying on this vest at a Forever 21 in Salt Lake City back in August, I regretfully put it back on the rack. But thanks to a trip to our local F21 here in Omaha, I found one — on clearance, no less! It’s definitely one of the edgiest leather pieces I own, so I wanted to keep things as casual and quirky as possible to juxtapose the toughness of the leather and studs.
I love buying pre-season clothes because you essentially get two “shopping” experiences: the first happens when you buy the item from the store, and the second happens when the weather finally cooperates and you’ve forgotten all the goodies you bought a few weeks earlier, only to discover that one item amidst the others in your closet. It really is like a second purchasing experience (but without spending more money – so does that mean I’m saving money?).
All kidding aside, this sweater was one of those pre-season purchases waiting to be worn once the weather cooled down. Rather than pair it with something expected (chambray or a white blouse), I went for a rich jewel tone. I love the result and think I might try layering a polka-dot blouse underneath next time.

I love a rainy day in October. These days make me want to curl up under a blanket with a good book and a warm cup of tea, coffee or cider — and that’s what happened this weekend. I had a work-filled, low-key weekend due to a huge project, but the cool, cloudy weather made going to a local coffee shop to warm up absolutely necessary.
So when the day turns rainy, I turn to earthy colors and layers. As usual, my chambray blouse is my number-one layering top. Mustard yellow and olive green were meant to be, and some fringe booties and a leopard umbrella are just what is needed to brighten up a gray day.
