Black midi, black leather jacket, leopard flats

I loved wearing the summer version of this outfit. So thank you Jessica Alba for an idea on how to wear this dress in cooler weather! These leopard flats never seem to leave my feet lately (the first time I posted with them, I reported that they weren't super comfy, but they just needed to be broken in), and my favorite leather jacket hasn't gotten much wear lately, so I'm excited for an outfit that will give me an opportunity to wear both!

Same Dress, 3 Ways

I've had this inspiration photo saved for ages so when I realized I had all the items I needed to re-create it, I was excited. My belt looked better over the sweater than under (it's a bit too big to wear under), but overall the final look is very similar. I also shared two other ways I've worn this dress so far - you've got preppy, boho and rocker - all from the same, simple navy dress. More navy dresses under $100 that would work in all 3 outfits are below!

Dress: Banana Republic, $30
Sweater: White Plum c/o
Boots: Michael Kors/Macy's, $225

Necklaces: My Stella & Dot 23
Approx. dates: Belt is 6 years ago. Purse is 2.5 years ago. Dress, boots and sweater are recent.

Today's Everyday Fashion: The Unexpected

Gray blazer, tee, olive pants, python shoes
Gray Banana blazer, F21 tee, LOFT olive pants

One of my favorite things about blogging and fashion in general is that I feel like I never stop learning. Without this inspiration photo, I never would've paired these pants with heels and a blazer. I was limiting them to casual flats and warm weather because of their loose fit and linen-type fabric. Not to mention that for this outfit I'd usually wear denim or cropped dress pants - I'd never usually consider a pant this casual. I don't think it photographed as well as it felt in person (might try a slightly different mix of colors next time), but it certainly felt great to try something unexpected!
