OOTD – Feeling like fall

Today I woke up chilly; the heater isn’t on in the house yet (because it was over 90 all last week and we still needed the AC), but it got cold last night. My darling husband has been leaving the windows open to let in some air, so I was extra chilly when the alarm went off.  I took the opportunity to wear one of my favorite fall sweaters.

The sweater is from a couple of seasons ago at Coldwater Creek (similar).  It is a beautiful tweedy fabric in shades of brown, orange and some touches of red.  I particularly love the color change at the waist/empire-ish line.  That plus the single button add definition and curves. (Although looking at the picture I have the urge to change that button out for something more interesting….)

I’m wearing it over a pair of Coldwater Creek knit jeans in bitter chocolate (a dark brown) and a J.Jill brown tank (only available in white now).

The necklace was found at Forever 21, where I almost never go.  I need to pay more attention to their accessories.

Pikolinos - Gomera 859-8377 (Olmo) - FootwearBecause it’s still Arizona, I finished the outfit off with my Pikolino Gomera‘s (because, you know, everyone wears sandals with a cardigan).  Ah well, still comfortable, and actually I don’t have a lot of closed-toed shoes in brown.  Something to address.

I actually stumbled when it came to purses today.  I went for the Modcloth bag with the animal skin at first, but for whatever reason I didn’t think the colors were right.  I might need to find a really warm brown somewhere that would match this better; a darker brown rather than camel.  Time to hit up ebay again for cheap pre-owned coach purses, perhaps….

Haircut scheduled for wednesday – I’m open to suggestions!!!

    I absolutely wear sandals with my cardigans (Florida) : > This is a great Fall look and you’re wearing it well. Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday!

    I absolutely agree that the sweater would look a lot better with a different button… I don’t know WHAT the designer was thinking with that choice! Otherwise, it’s a pretty sweater, and the right button can make is special
