Lookbook: Short Skirt & Long Jacket

10/28/2013

I know I've been wearing a lot of black lately, but I'm seriously into black and white combos this fall. However, I will consider not wearing this mini satchel...or this hat...or these shoes in the next outfit post. I will consider it, but I can't make any promises.

What I can promise you, though, is that I will have a really big holiday giveaway coming up in November to include some of the great items I received from the iFabbo swag bag and some wonderful accessories from Layered Muse, so you really have a lot to look forward to next month.

I wore this to the Topshop x Nordstrom event a couple weekends ago before heading out to see Carrie and eat shabu-shabu. Do you know what that is? Well let me just say that I am not impressed. I'm tired of going to places where I pay you to cook my own food. If I wanted to cook my own food then I would have stayed at home and had the hubs do it, lol.

Charlotte Russe blazer. Boy Meets Girl cutting edge tee. Zara mini skort. Shoedazzle Nardith by Sophia & Lee pumps. Target felt boater hat. Lor'e-jac spike-n-chain ring. 3.1 Phillip Lim mini satchel.

What do you think of this look?

  3. I love the look! Your accessories are perfect, who doesn't love good ole' black? I had my eye on that Phillip Lim bag but I don't think we ever got it at my Target. We get really slim pickings of the designer collabs because people consider yoga pants and Uggs high fashion where I live :)

  26. Wear them as much as you want :D! How was Carrie? I want to see it! And Shabu Shabu is actually one of my favorite things but I like to do it at home, family style and buy LOTS of food that a restaurant would charge you an arm and leg for ;).
