Undone

Just a quick post today...
Sweater: Thrifted ($5)
Jeans: UO (gift)
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell ($60 sale)
Shirt: J.Crew Outlet ($40)
I woke up this morning to another grey, cloudy, and rainy day, and frankly I couldn't be happier. I love waking up early on these days, taking my time to make coffee and enjoy just being in my home. It was the perfect day to break out this sweater- which I bought in July- that I love. I have such a hard time finding affordable, but well made sweaters, that even though it was July I snatched this up the minute I saw it. I love the camel color and basket weave knit; I knew it would fit into my wardrobe perfectly.
Another piece on loan from Kdikio Vintage! I love the texture of the leather on brass, and I thought it tied in my bright shoes nicely with the rest of the outfit.

I'm keeping things short tonight, it's been a long day and I have another busy one lined up tomorrow. Have a great night!

Love the sweater so much! Your Jeffrey Campells are my favorite shoes in the whole wide world! I have a similar pair of Steve Maddens but they are so uncomfy! :(

I love the pop of red with the shoes and that sweater is such a good find.

Also, I love the way you tie/belt sweaters/cardigans sometimes where it overlaps assymetrically.

What a perfect shade of brown on that sweater! It looks so thick and cozy.
We're having unusually hot weather in Portland, seems like we swapped climates for a bit! Sorry, but I'd like to send the heat back to you. :)

Leigh said...

You look so gorgeous and warm. I wish our heat wave would dissipate.

I am so excited for sweaters. I am in love with the knit on yours, it makes for an intriguing texture.

Next thing you know, it will be time for boots!

Fii_Rose said...

:o havn't seen a pair of jeffery campbell's I havn't liked and those are no exception x

Christina said...

I love this. I have been in my mind imagining the different ways I will try to incorporate the color camel into my wardrobe this fall without actually buying the expensively priced camel pieces out there and I keep thinking of wearing a camel sweater with a light denim button down. So you are completely fulfilling my vision right now! Awesome shoes by the way!

idée_géniale said...

Oh Julie, you always seem to pull off the classic outfits so well. This looks so great together and comfty too. Hope I get to see you during nyfw.

Chloe Trayner said...

Julie, I love this classic and cosy look. The red shoes really finish it off perfectly for me though. Grey days are some of my favourites too, I love snuggling up in wool with a cup of coffee.

closet365 said...

These posts are making me completely stoked for fall. I couldn't agree more, that I love it when the air gets crisp and we can break out sweaters. Yours is fantastic.

Have a great week!

Cute Sweater!
Sweaters can get expensive so I too shop for them around summer time. Thats when I find I get the best deals.

Keira said...

I LOVE this! We're on day three of endless rain, and this outfit looks exactly like what I want to wear right now.

Midwest Mayhem said...

I love how the red shoes stand out.

Erin Cathleen said...

Amazing five-dollar find! I love the color and texture of your sweater. I, too, have a hard time finding affordable sweaters that are also timeless and chic... all the more reason to thrift it up!

charlotteauzou said...

I love red shoes :D

Natasha the whimsical nerd said...

I have those shoes. I couldn't believe how comfortable and tall they were and kept mentioning to friends that it was amazing how walkable they are. Then I totally wiped out in a parking lot because of a pebble.

Those red shoes are what dreams are made of.

It was so good to see you yesterday! Since you were coveting my bag, I looked for another and found this one which is close but a bit pricy: http://cgi.ebay.com/Beautiful-El-Campero-Leather-Handbag-Purse-Italy-/150482490776?pt=US_CSA_WH_Handbags&hash=item2309749598

I'll keep you in mind if I ever get sick of mine.

Hope to see you again soon!
