It started out simply enough. I realized I have a mustard top, cargo skirt and booties that are so similar to the catalog photo it's uncanny! I figured I should at least give the outfit a try, right? But then I added a wool hat and a fringe purse, and I may have taken it too far. I'm one pair of tights away from a Robin Hood costume. I would also fit in nicely, however, at a farmer's market or a music festival in this outfit. And costume or not I'll happily wear it if the occasion calls for it. Because what is life if you can't simultaneously love what you're wearing and poke a little fun at it, too? Now hand me my bow and arrow, I've got a new outfit to try!

Is there anything better than a red/leopard/black combo this season? I put together an outfit with old items in my closet that closely resembles the inspiration photo. A lot of you asked about this leather skirt recently, so I also wanted to provide some similar options for you, below! It's such an easy and comfortable outfit and there are leather skirts everywhere right now, in all shapes and sizes so there's something for everyone. Is this a combo you would wear in real life?

My denim jacket curse is officially broken! During a quick stop at the outlets this weekend I found a denim jacket to add to my closet. My anti-denim jacket feelings date back to college and an unfortunate ID photo which made me hate denim jackets for many years. Don't get me wrong, they look great on other people, and are really so versatile. Even though they had such a bad connotation for me, I found myself wishing I had one to wear with different outfits in my closet over the years and ultimately I knew it would make a great staple piece. My first outfit with my new jacket is simple -white jeans, black tee and brown accessories - the first of many outfits to come!
