This was my thinking today: I wanted a little sparkle yet, I needed to be casual. This jean jacket and black skirt combo has been a go-to this season, and here is another rendition. see others here
I dragged out this sparkly top from last year that I got at Cache on sale. It was a little too low, so I added the scarf. I love the textured stockings and they are lightweight, so they still work for fall.
The shoes were the key here for not making it too dressy, I think. They ARE clogs, and though many consider them to be a fashion faux pas, nonetheless, they really help to bring this outfit down a notch. (The office I work at is VERY CASUAL~ construction genre).
Oh, and the coat is THE BEST! Its roomy enough to wear a blazer under, and is fleece. It's thrifted; I just had to add the closure on it as it had none.
What was your thinking today?
