What I Wore: Jacket: Thrifted, Sweater: Urban Outfitters, Jeans: Madewell, Boots c/o ShoeMint, Necklace c/o Unexpected Expectancy, Bag c/o Omnia Vintage

I always seem to forget that fall comes a bit later here in Pittsburgh. While my mom talks of leaf peepers and temperatures in the teens in mid-October, I'm left wondering when fall is going to show up here. But then it happens, one day you walk outside, and BOOM! The trees are ablaze and the weather is that perfect kind of crisp.

For this particular fall Saturday, I threw on my favorite sweater (seriously, I only want this sweater, ever), and a light jacket, and grabbed this roomy vintage rucksack from Omnia Vintage for an afternoon of errands and an Ikea date (which is not actually a date, it's still just errands but there are meatballs involved). This bag is reminiscent of a bag of my moms that I've always coveted. I love a good, simple leather backpack, and the forest green color just makes it that much better.

I'm so excited to be partnering with Omnia Vintage today for a giveaway! After three years selling on Etsy, OV proprietress Naomi has opened a brand new online boutique chock full of vintage bags, clothing, and incredible jewelry. Naomi is kindly offering one lucky winner $75 to use towards anything in her shop! Pretty amazing right?

To Enter: Visit Omnia Vintage and take a look around, and leave a comment on this post with a link to your favorite item from the shop. Good luck!

----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- -----------
Tiny print: Giveaway ends on Monday November 11th  at 10pm. One entry per person. Winner will be chosen using a random number generator. Winner will have a 48 hour grace period to respond to email notification before a replacement winner will be chosen.  Be sure to leave an email address in your comment if you do not have a blog where I can EASILY reach you. The winner will be chosen in a timely manner, and notified, but I reserve the right as proprietor of this blog to announce the winner when and if I see fit. Winner is responsible for any additional costs associated with prize (shipping, additional amount spent).

iris said...

That is a great sweater, but I've sworn off purchasing mostly unnatural-materials clothing, so it's a no go for me :(

Omnia currently has an awesome wool-ish accordion swing skirt though, which sounds lovely.

esmeluna said...

Just gotta say that your hair looks AMAZING! I'm usually obsessed with long hair and never get my hair cut, but your hair looks soooo healthy and herbal essence comercial-esque!!! Getting a hair cut ASAP and pinning your hair right now because I must try to replicate the color!!! Imitation is as form of flattery right? That's what I'm going with!

Lucy said...


Love the 'On the Grid long sleeve dress | Vittadini Sport' dress!
Great shop & giveaway!

Jennifer said...

That would be my favorite sweater too!
