All remixed except shoes
Tee: Banana Republic
Cardi: New York & Co.
Flats: Nine West (like, four years ago)
Confession: I don't love this outfit. I feel like the proportions are a little off. I love all the pieces, but I don't love them all together. I feel like this has been a common occurrence this fall - like I'm not quite on the Fall Train and I can't translate my style into this transitional weather. It happens every fall, though, and then I jump on the train and work it out. It'll happen....
Anyway, I'm participating in the "You've Got This! Fall Trends 2010" week, sponsored by Iris over at 260 Days, No Repeats. We just got back from a trip to VA late last night, so this morning I wasn't trying to search out my most obscure on-trend-for-fall pieces. I turned to my old favorite: animal prints.
Can we discuss how happy I am about leopard being the IT print for fall? My love for leopard is deep and well-documented and I'm thrilled that I'll be able to rock my leopard and be the height of fashion for this season at least.
Now, the outfit I'll probably pull out of the closet and wear again:
On me (boots and accessories remixed):
Boots: Nine West (and probably five years old)
Scarf: Turkey - the same shop where I got the scarf you could win here
Earrings: Banana Republic
Bangles: Banana Republic
On my mom:
Blouse, vest, and belt: Ann Taylor
Pants, shoes, earrings, ring, and necklace: Kohl's
How stylish is my mamita? So many levels of stylish, that's how stylish. This is where I credit her for any bit of style I have. She is the reason I have this blog. The end.
I love this woman. Second confession of the post: I have that same Ann Taylor blouse. She bought it for me when we went out on Saturday. I'm pretty excited to wear it some time soonish. We have a lot of the same pieces, but we rarely style them the same way; funny how that happens, huh?
This outfit is probably one of my favorites, ever. EVER! It's comfortable, seasonably appropriate, stylish, sassy, and simple. I may just wear this again at some other point, I won't lie. Also - more leopard print.
PS My dad, though hilarious and wonderful, is not quite as naturally stylish as my mamita. ;)
Oh, and y'all should enter the giveway!
