The timeless fall combo

Sunnies: Gucci | Necklace: Stella and Dot | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (option) | Top: LOFT | Bracelets:  Stella and Dot, Forever 21 | Watch: Kate Spade (option) | Skirt: Calvin Klein (option, option) | Shoes: MICHAEL Michael Kors (option, option)

All these colors exude fall to me. OK, well, if I'm being honest, I can wear leopard year round. But when paired with rich burgundy and camel, it definitely feels very fall! This skirt and these shoes have been in my collection for multiple seasons - at least 5 years. I love when items are timeless like this, yet they are far from boring to me.

    1. Thanks, girl! Leopard in and of itself is pretty classic. Glad I found this skirt so long ago!

    1. Thanks so much! This is second day hair after I've curled it on day 1. I love the big loose curls on the second day!

  4. When I saw your outfit I was thinking, "Is that skirt new?" But wow, I am impressed that you've had it for 5 years! I don't have many pieces that last that long in my closet. But you're right, it really is a timeless classic. Those shoes are great too and I'm also impressed you've had those so long!! (And that you were able to find such a close dupe! You have mad skillz in that department.)

    1. Haha! Thanks for appreciating my "skill." I think it's really all about doing a search with the right keywords. i think in this case I searched for "black and tan" shoes or maybe "colorblock pumps" but filtered it to only show black and brown results. It's an art. What can I say?

  5. I really love the leopard pattern on this skirt. Pairing it with the burgundy top was a great idea!

    1. I think I would cry if anything ever happened to this necklace. It's quickly become my favorite and hard not to wear it every single day!

  7. I love those timeless items. I have a few sweaters that I've had for years and years. They're almost vintage haha. I love the leopard with the burgundy. It's all so good!
