Where I wore it: To work & to run errands after work

As much as I love the foliage season, I love late-autumn just as much- possibly more. Days of consistent 40 degree weather where I can finally break out some of the sweaters I've been hoarding over the summer months and not end up overheated by mid-day, darker, less-pumpkin-y tones- it's a beautiful, if gloomy time of year. Which suits me just fine. I know I talk about the weather constantly on here, but it plays such a big role in getting dressed everyday, how could I not? I think I would have a difficult time living somewhere that didn't have distinct seasons, I love the anticipation and constant change that accompany each new season.

I've been gravitating towards muted tones lately- light pinks, olive, dark browns- so when ELF asked if I'd like to style up the new Lace shoe, I knew exactly what color I would ask for: a nice, dark, chestnut brown. A color that, in my opinion goes with everything, and I wasn't disappointed. I had a pair of shoes from UO that were similar to these a few years ago, but were so uncomfortable, this pair from ELF are not only way better quality, but so easy to walk in and didn't need to be broken in at all. From there, this outfit just sort of came together, I love the dusty-rose color of this sweater paired with the olive skirt.
