Outfit Post: I Love My … Suede Booties

Over the last month during my challenge to shop my own closet, I realized that I have a few (or maybe a lot of) favorites that I consistently turn to when I’m in need of that finishing touch. I also heard from some of my pals that read the blog {insert hand waving emojithanks guys!} that they liked seeing how I re-wore things in a different way.

So I thought I’d do a little series, which is a total copy of People StyleWatch’s series ‘I Really Love My…’ , showcasing my favorites and how I wore them – all in one place. Thus saving you from the spiral of having to click all the ‘seen before here’ links.

First up are these suede booties I scored at least one, maybe two years ago from LOFT. I know they were 40% off (score) and I’m know I’ve gotten WAY more than my fair share of wear out of them. They are a combo of all things that are good: great heel, perfect color, not too high and super comfortable.

They work well with dresses (wore them this weekend with this dress to a party) but are equally great with jeans and a tee. I’ve found some similar pairs/styles that fit the bill below in case you’re looking for your own pair of boots to go into heavy rotation this fall/winter.

Outfit Post: Top Hat

I got this hat last year. I wore it a couple times but couldn’t get over Drew’s comment that it was my Indiana Jones hat.

This year, I’ve been breaking it out left and right and because of his comment, I’m considering dressing like my favorite Harrison Ford character for Halloween (seriously though, any one have any last minute tips cause I am struggling). Last week I wore it a little more casually but today I’m dressing it up a little. This little black dress was one of my best buys ever on ASOS. I’ve had it for a couple years now and I still turn to it when I’m coming down to the wire and still haven’t found something to wear. Clearly waiting until the last minute is a big problem for me.

Throwing on a hat can be a little daunting since you’re inevitably going to get a few looks and it’s definitely something we’re not all used to wearing on the regular. My tip is to keep the rest of the look simple so that the hat stands out but never looks cartoon-ish or costumey. Also, these suckers are WARM so you’ll want it to be a little brisk so you’re head doesn’t get all sweaty (gross, i know. sorry).

I’m thinking of breaking this look out again this weekend, albeit with tights since it’s finally getting a little chilly, for an engagement party for some friends. Despite being unprepared for almost everything, I am definitely prepared for my brother-in-law (and probably others) to give me a hard time about the hat. I’m thinking it will be something about Halloween being over so I can pack up my Carmen Sandiego costume but there’s also the chance for some safari comment. Either way, I’ll take it. Indiana Jones FTW.

Okay I’m off to tackle that inbox before doing cutting out early to tailgate for the UofL vs. FSU game tomorrow (celebrating my office’s third anniversary! woo hoo!). If you’re running around Papa John Cardinal Stadium tomorrow, we’ll be tailgating by Gate 1 – come say hey!

Outfit Post: Zip It

Clearly I’ve gone to the dark side, of my closet that is, this season. I can’t get enough of layering black, gray and a little white here and there. On this look though, I opted to balance out the all-black ensemble with some old favorites, these LOFT booties. They may be getting a little scuffed up these days but they have the perfect heel (just high enough with a heel just wide enough), the perfect color and best of all, are perfectly comfortable.

This jacket is obviously the star of the show though. I bought it last month (so there was no cheating on the no-spend goal) after eying it for at least a couple weeks. Luckily it’s still available, so if you want to eye it and think it over for at least a couple days, you’ve got time.

Keeping it quick today since there’s something about rainy day that kicks my work productivity into high gear. Gotta take advantage while I’ve got the feeling since it’s sure to fade into distraction soon. Make it a good one!
