Rust and Olive

In this outfit:
Jacket: UO ($30 2010)
Scarf: ModCloth
Dress c/o Line & Dot (coming soon!)
Cardigan: J.Crew (last year)
Tights: AA super opaque ($25)
Belt c/o Lulu's
Earrings c/o Noble Town Vintage (2011)

Boots: Jeffrey Campbell "Rumi"

Where I wore it: To the office, and to the grocery store after work.

A guarantee for a good day is when good mail arrives, Monday was already going pretty well- I woke up on time, had a productive morning at work, things had generally started out on a better note- and then I received a package kindly sent to me by Line & Dot, with this silk dress inside, and a good week was set in stone.

This is one of those dresses that I knew exactly how I wanted to wear it as soon as I saw it in person- I actually expected it to be a brighter red with black leopard print, but I couldn't be happier that it's a bit mire subdued with Sharpie-like scribbles- and for once the outfit in my head worked out. So often, I'll imagine what I believe to be a perfect outfit, and then as soon as I'm wearing it, it's all wrong. Anyway, it's nothing too crazy: tights, a goes-with-everything jacket, and goes-with-everything boots too. If there was one item I've bought in the past year that have paid for themselves, it's these black booties. I know, they're in every other post, but yeah, they're that comfortable.

I hope you're having a good week too!

At first glance I thought the dress was some kind of animal print but now I can see the little scribbles. I love it nonetheless!

This is probably one of my most favorite fall outfits! I might have to go out and buy that dress! :)
And your outfit posts have convinced me I need to get some thick sweater tights this upcoming paycheck! :)

Everyone's pictures are reminding me that I need some scarves! Warm ones. Is massive scarf shopping a legit thing to do?
