Random roundup

Random roundup, outfit selfies

Holy crap! It's Friday, which is awesome but it's the last weekend before Thanksgiving and a house full of guests!!! Guess I have some work to do this weekend! But, before I do, I have a handful of outfit selfies to tide you over for the weekend! Let's get started!

Moto jacket, Evereve camo dress, fleece tights, black wedge booties
Jacket: Capulet (c/o Shopbop) (cheaper option, budget option) | Dress: Evereve (option) | Necklace: Kendra Scott "Phara" (gifted) | Fleece tights: Target | Booties: Sam Edelman "Wilma" (option, option)

Now that the temps are consistently cooling off, I've been reaching for my wedge bootie + fleece tight combo over and over. They are perfect with dresses and skirts in the fall and winter because they make my 5'-2" self feel like I have mile long legs. You can see proper photos of this tights + booties combo in last week's post here.

Olive moto jacket, striped mock neck sweater, black skinnies, gold pumps
Jacket: Express (similar shape but other colors hereoption, option) | Top: H&M (option) | Bottoms: Express (similar) | Shoes: SJP "Fawn" (70% off here)

I accumulated 3 of these jackets in different colors over the years and I was afraid to put them on for the season and see that they were too big. Thankfully, I am still happy with the fit, and I'm also thankful that my past self sized down a couple of sizes before, which certainly helped with them still looking acceptable on me now! I would be heartbroken if I had to give them up because they do add instant structure but edge to an outfit that a cardigan, denim jacket, or utility jacket couldn't necessarily do.

Suede moto jacket, flares, pointy toe pumps
Jacket: Capulet (c/o Shopbop) (cheaper optionbudget option) | Necklace: Kendra Scott 
"Margot" (in gold on crazy sale here) | Top: GapFlares: Express (option, option) | Shoes: Kate Spade "Licorice" (budget option)

I realized I hadn't worn my flares to work since I wore them in this post here. I was actually surprised because I thought the handful of people that normally made smart remarks about my outfits would certainly say something about the flares since they're such a statement and different than my skinnies that I normally wear on the daily. But I survived the day unscathed! Ha! Not that I necessarily let them dictate what I wear or not wear, but I usually can predict when something will generate a lot of dumb comments. I will admit that I struggled with the silhouette of this outfit for a bit. I wanted something fitted up top to offset the volume of the flares. But I also wanted the length of my top to hit right at mid hip. These boatneck tops from Gap are perfect for this - I have it in several colors. And since these jeans are pull-on, I'm completely seamless with no buttons or pockets bulging in front, which I love.

Herringbone blazer, stripe sweater, red pumps
Earrings: Kendra Scott "Danielle"Necklace: Kendra Scott "Carole"Blazer: Express (option) | Sweater: JCrew Factory (option) | Bottoms: Express (option) | Shoes: BCBGeneration

And last but not least is this layered look with one of the few blazers that I actually own. Every time I wear a blazer, I wonder why I don't have more. The sweater gives me the pop of color I love and the embellishment detail makes the outfit feel like me and not stuffy. And of course, pointy toe pumps for good measure!!

  1. I have all the J.Crew Boatneck how did I not know Gap made them as well and they are 50% of right. Thank you! Loving all these cute outfit, specially the camo dress.


  2. I couldn't agree with you more on the textured knit moto jacket! I love mine (wore them twice in the past two weeks but haven't managed to get them posted yet) and would definitely add more to my collection in a heartbeat if they re-issued or I found something similar!
