Outfit Post: Gingham + Army Green

October 24, 2011

It was a gorgeous weekend here in Cincinnati.  Cool temps in the morning (perfect for a big cup of coffee), then warmed up to the mid 60’s with abundant sunshine for the afternoon.   I had a few errands on the agenda for Saturday afternoon including test driving a car, shopping for some living room accessories, and picking up some things to get our house organized.  I wanted to be comfortable but still look put together (although I was really tempted to leave my Lululemon WunderUnder crops on….) so I consulted my closet and the creative juices started flowing.

I usually start with the top as the foundation of my outfit, and on Saturday, the first thing that popped out to me was the black gingham shirt from J. Crew factory outlet.  I considered putting a sweater over top of the shirt, but thought I might get warm, so I opted for the vest instead.  I didn’t want to look bulky so I chose a thick camel colored leather belt to cinch my waist and give me some shape, despite the layers I was wearing.  I paired the tops with some Gap jeggings (cuffed a few times at the ankle to give a more casual feel) and black woven flats.  For accessories, I used my black Bottega Veneta woven purse (the Deux Lux one below is almost an exact replica at a seriously small fraction of the price), a leather bracelet, and a gold watch.

Here’s how you can re-create the look!

    Sar you betta believe I am sock bunning, HOWEVER, i sock bunned the ghetto way because I can't for the life of me get all of my layers to roll into the bun the proper way, so I just put it in like a scrunchy and wrapped around! I owe my extra 10 minutes of sleep before work all to you!!!
