Dressed for: Catching Up

It took FOREVER for the leaves to begin turning this year, but now they’re all blazing red, yellow, and orange. So I’ve got a few early fall outfits that need to get squeezed in before my photos match my environment!

Already Pretty outfit featuring windowpane print tank, faux leather leggings, black leather messenger bag

Jacket – Athleta via eBaysimilarsustainable
Tank – Make It Good (made in USA/no longer available) – similar
Faux leather pants – Lysse via eBaysustainable (through 3X!)
Ankle Boots – Parnu courtesy ECCO (no longer available) – similar/sustainable
Bag – Tom Thomas (handmade, no longer available) – similarsustainable
Earrings – self-made – same/sustainable

Still loving my faux leather, as you can see! Bought this tank last summer on a trip to New Ulm, and really must start wearing it more. Windowpane is a great alternative to stripes; same clean, orderly look but just a little bit unexpected.

Already Pretty outfit featuring red plaid duster jacket, layered necklaces, black jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Logan

Jacket – thrifted – similarsustainable
Tee – Threads 4 Thought
Jeans – Frame via eBay
Boots – Paul Green Darcy (dang, these were a lot cheaper when I bought mine!)
Bag – Rebecca Minkoff Logan via eBay (no longer available) – similarsustainable
Top necklace – defunct Etsy vendor – same here
Compass necklace – courtesy Mark Defrates
Bottom necklace – Jenny Bird Bowie (no longer available – used ones here)

It’s blurry because it’s raining! And also a little closer to sunset than is ideal for photos … but this new-to-me long blazer had to be captured. Initially I tried this outfit with my Talking Heads graphic tee, and I looked like an extra from “Heathers.” So I swapped in solid black.

Soon it’ll be too cold for sheers, so I’m giving my diaphanous sweaters a workout while I still can. I could’ve sworn this sweater was tunic-length – based on this outfit – but it felt mighty short! I’ll go for a thicker pant next time.

    I love the window-pane blouse and clicked on the “similar” link. Ivanka Trump? Yeah.. no. Well, I’m glad that you will (may) make a bit of change from my click, anyway. Will hit the consignment stores.
