What I Wore...11.15.15
We had another warm up this past weekend, so I once again took advantage of the warmer temps to wear an outfit that did not require a sweater, coat, or parka to keep me from freezing.
This outfit is the one I wore to church and then to run errands this past Sunday, 11.15.15. The jeans were purchased early on this year, but all the other pieces have been in my wardrobe for many years now. As I mentioned in this post last week, I spent most of the day cleaning out my closet on the previous Saturday, trying on my fall & winter clothing items to see what still fits, and even styling a couple of new looks.
This outfit happens to be one those new looks, and I really like the way it turned out.
*Gap 'The Perfect Black Blazer', and I have to agree with the name 100%. I purchased mine several years ago for a steal, and it has quickly become one of my favorite 'go to' wardrobe items...extremely comfortable to wear, and very flattering, too. If you do not already own a black blazer, you really should consider investing in one...it's a must have wardrobe staple. - Similar here and here in black.
*J.Crew Dot Flouncette Blouse from 2010. It's been several years since I last wore this one. Somehow it survived numerous closet purges, as well as a move across the U.S...glad it survived! Similar here and here.
*Madewell Slim Boyjean in Seneca Wash - love these! So comfortable, and the wash goes with everything. The slim boyjean is actually one of my favorite fits that Madewell offers, and I hope to get another pair or two in different washes in the near future. Similar here and here.
*Talbots Leopard Calf Hair Flap-Pocket Tote purchased back in 2010, and I still love it to this day. I've styled several outfits with it over the years, and even shared some pics of a couple of them on the blog here and here. - Similar bag here and here.
*Eileen Fisher Coax Bootie in Italian Crackled Leather. These are another item I bought several years ago, and are one of my all-time favorite purchases. Even though I bought them on sale, they were still quite spendy, but have been SO worth the money! I wear them constantly, and at this point the CPW is in the single digits. The are incredibly well-made & comfortable to wear. If you're ever able to find a pair, I highly recommend snatching them up...you won't regret it!
Similar here and here in black.
*J.Crew Calf Hair Skinny Belt - I have 2 of these...one from 2010 that I wear as a waist belt, and then another one from 2011 that I wear as a 'regular' belt on my hips. The belt is extremely versatile, and adds a bit of interest to outfits. - Similar here and here.
*Monet Gold Hoop Earrings
*Michael Kors Gold 'Camille' Watch - I received this as a gift from my husband a couple years ago, and still absolutely adore it to this day. I wear it on an almost daily basis, and always receive numerous compliments any time I do. Similar here, here, and here in gold.
*J.Crew Pavé Link Bracelet - I've had this for many years now, and it has been well worth the investment. I wear it on a very regular basis, so it is another item with very low CPW...highly recommend if you've been considering the splurge. - Similar here and here.
*Madewell Mini Bow Ring and Facet Stacking Rings - I love the jewelry at Madewell, especially the various rings they offer. Granted, these are definitely more of 'costume' jewelry pieces, as the gold can tend to rub off after awhile, and that's why I purchase them on super sale.

*Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in 'Cruella'
