Vest Friends :: boyfriend jeans + drapey vest

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Introducing an off-duty combination that's fit for fall and will effortlessly take you from brunch to pumpkin field to fireside. This look has layers, edgy accessories, relaxed elegance, and refined flair.  
A new season calls for a new pair of booties! It's not really fall until you treat yourself (and your feet). These beauties by Sam Edelman have been a lifesaver for me in the city. My mom picked them out for me and that alone should have been my first hint that they'd be incredibly comfortable. These are the shoes I've been wearing every day for weeks now (and I stand for nine hours a day). If you haven't purchased your new pair of booties yet, snatch these up before they're gone! 
I wasn't kidding when I said I'd be experimenting more with outerwear this fall. Say hello to my first (I know, I'm like wayyy behind) vest! Vests, aka sleeveless coats, are a super fun and easy way to jump on the layering party bus this season. When the temps get even cooler, vests also serve as an extra layer underneath your coat, not to mention a stylish layer you can keep wearing even inside. The one I'm wearing is now on sale! Grab it! 
Boyfriend jeans are the epitome of casual cool and they're my go-to pant for weekend style. I cuff them a little big higher when I wear booties and I always think it's fun to pair them with more feminine accessories. 
An edgy necklace like this one gives any look major cool points. I love how it features gold and silver tones so it truly pairs well with anything! Even my metallic silver top
Speaking of edgy, these pointed bar earrings by Rebecca Minkoff speak for themselves while remaining minimal and sleek. They look fantastic paired with my necklace. And guess what? SALE ALERT - they're only $14.99 right now! 
Did I mention this versatile vest has pockets? I'm obsessed! Throw it on over a dress for a relaxed, polished vibe. 
I swept "vivid violet" Smashbox lipstick on for a punch of berry-hued charm.

I'm not going to lie, it was cold this weekend here in New York City. It may not look like it but I was freezing in these photos. My roomie and I took them on Saturday morning when it was 50 degrees and misting out, not to mention that relentless wind. Brrr! I was not prepared for such a quick turnaround from our recent 75 degree days. Luckily it looks like we'll be back to typical fall weather this week (I'm talking high 60s and 70s - phew)!
