Wearing: Dotted collar

In every effort to utilize my spring/summer clothes for winter, I re-purposed this dotted top, which is so cute standalone, to be the 'pop' of my outfit today. It also prevented me from looking like a black blob (as my boyfriend called me).

Sweater: Zara
Flats: Urban Outfitters (similar and on sale!)

Wearing: Lady in red

I usually wear this shade in the lipstick form, not in the blouse form but I quite like color for a change. Plus it's versatile. Great casually (lighter jeans, neutral boots) or dressy (leather pants and leopard heels). And it may be just me but I have a tough time finding cool long sleeved blouses for fall.

Kim Kardashian

A+ for Kim, whose style is certainly elevated post-North. Mixing neutrals, soft make-up, and classic silhouettes are all tenets of my personal style so I've enjoyed seeing what she's been wearing. Die for the oversized camel coat.

Wearing: Studly lavendar

This coat is an absolute treasure I found at H&M a few years ago. And while its studs are trendy, the coat has been a classic staple that I could never part with. I could never part with the endless compliments I get on it either. Wink.

Today is sort of a mish mash of neutrals (again) and I'm finally showing you my favorite beige booties I wrote about last week.  Happy Thursday, kids! Almost there!

Coat: H&M (old, love this and this)
Sweater: H&M (also old, similar)
Necklace: Forever 21 (love this)
Sunglasses: H&M (similar here and here)

Wearing: Fall nuetrals

Sigh. These pants. They are a great color and appear to be a great fit but they are seriously uncomfortable. No stretch. No give. They are Gap legging jeans, appropriately named "Always Skinny" and trust me, they are always. skinny.

The sweater was a Crossroads find and I absolutely love the chunky cowl neck. Some cowl necks lay limp and useless but this one is big and structured (similar to this Zara sweater I have).

Sweater: Loft (similar here and here)
Pants: Gap (would love the cords)
Flats: Old Navy
Watch: Target
Bracelet: H&M

Wearing: Camel coat

My boyfriend calls it a clown coat. The lapels are big but the price tag wasn't so I picked it up and took it home. Reminds me of Kim Kardashian's beloved (and over-photographed) Max Mara coat she's been seen in lately.

Coat: Zara
Flats: Old Navy
Sunglasses: Vintage (similar)

Wearing: Thriftwear knitwear

Oops! Forgotten post.

The best places to get chunky funky sweaters are thrift stores (for example, this one). They're perfectly oversized, just the right amount of worn in, and come in unique colors that are often hard to find. And just like denim, the best sweater is someone else's sweater. If that doesn't gross you out.

I sometimes double this one as a jacket but this time I wore it with classic stripes, light jeans, and classic black flats. And I just looooove this color (three sweaters and counting).
