When the weather is just cool enough to need some help keeping warm, my quilted excursion vest is the perfect thing to do the trick. When paired with a light weight cotton button down, it allows breathing room for days when you are constantly going from varying outside & inside temps.
In my opinion, nothing adds a little somethin' something' to a casual outfit like a statement necklace. My go-to place to splurge on this jewelry accessory is J. Crew (similar look here). Their seasonal sales can be a great way to snag a great piece at a great price.
Having a petite frame causes issues when picking the perfect cross body bag. If the bag is too big, it'll swallow your profile; also, the strap has to hit at the hip for the most walking comfort. I chose this Rebecca Minkoff cross body (newer version here) because it rests at hips length, without needing to be shortened, as well as still being extremely dynamic in it's design.
A simple riding boot pulls it all together by keeping it simple & my gold watch ties in the gold accents of my necklace and bag hardware. My outfit contains a lot of tan, which can become a very blah color in abundance. To counter this I chose a bunch of different shades of the same tan color group. In doing so, my look seems mismatched on purpose for a more lively color palate.
Hope this post leaves you all yearning for the perfect fall weather to be back (wishful thinking right?) Happy Monday!
