As I was dressing this morning with a totally different outfit in mind I was startled by the sound of rain drops outside. Since the open toed gold flats were probably not the best idea for a rainy day immediately decided on this outfit. Happy to be picking a combo from my ‘fall/winter’ spreadsheet for the first time. I am up to 117 outfit combinations already! I purchased these pants couple weeks ago at Target. They are the perfect casual black skinny pants. They are styled like cargo pants but fit like leggings. These boots have been in my closet for as long as I can remember. I always wore them under bootcut jeans or pants as an alternative to high heeled pairs when I traveled for work. With their calf high length and triple buckles they are totally in style this season and can be displayed fully over skinny pants and jeans. Even though they are in decent condition after years of ownership I doubt they will survive this season as I have them under many many combos. On top I paired the zebra print tee with the striped wrap around cardigan. I like the mix of stripes of both. This cardigan is so comfy and just adds style to whatever I wear it with it seems. To accessorize going with all black jewelry. The huge onyx necklace is a gift from my uncle’s mother. It is engraved in the back and I always remember her sweet face and kindness whenever I wear it. The ring is another vintage item from a relative who has passed away. The cuff is a new purchase from Forever 21. At $12 it was a lot pricier than their usual items but I really like it.
What was hilarious is my daughter now leans to the wall like me when I set up the camera on the tripod across from her.
