Quick Friday post for you guys, in case you have some fun plans this weekend and need an outfit idea! One of my favorite new combos for Fall is a turtleneck sweater paired with a 70s A-line mini (preferably in a fun texture, material or print) and anchored by pointed toe ankle booties. Add a flat, structured, medium sized bag with a long strap, and this look can literally take you anywhere– I’ll wear it to work, to parties, for dinner and drinks…it can be interpreted as casual or dressy as you make it. I love that it’s a fresh take on a skirt-top-and-boots combination; and one that we haven’t seen a whole lot of yet– and I bet you guys already have at least two of the four required pieces in your closets! I wore a similar look (but with lace up sandals) to a bridal shower last weekend:

A black leather (or faux leather if that’s more your speed or style) is a must have, in my opinion, for every stylish gal’s wardrobe– it can be paired with literally ANYTHING, as it’s a neutral color and cut, but the fabric and texture really bring edge and life to an otherwise simple or boring outfit. One of my absolute favorite things to pair a this leather tank (found at Saks Off Fifth for about $120; real leather with a chiffon underlay for an awesome hard/soft contrast!) with is distressed denim: baggy boyfriend jeans in the winter and fall, and these cutoffs in the summer (albeit, today wasn’t super hot or humid, hence why I was able to wear this top lol). I also like pairing a leather tank under a blazer for work, with a poufy or feminine skirt, with structured colored or denim culottes, or even under overalls… This exact top is sold out, and I wasn’t able to track it down for you guys anywhere, so I linked a few similar options I like below– now these aren’t the thriftiest purchases, true– most of the ones below are over $100– but this is me trying to convince you that this particular purchase is worth it and you will find yourself wearing this top with 9579453947 different outfits, I swear!
