A New Fall Neutral

This burgundy skirt from Target was a steal at $22---and I'm loving the way it mixes with various prints and color combos. It's almost like a neutral for fall.

I decided to add a tiny polka-dot blouse and a striped blazer in the same colors.  If you're scared to mix prints, try using prints in the same color family to ease into the trend.


Skirt- Target- mine is a size 6, for reference (buy it here!)
Belt- J.Crew (similar)
Blazer- Express (similar, similar)
Shoes- Zara (buy them here)
Necklace- c/o Stella & Dot (similar, similar)


Hope everyone has a great week and thank you for your patience as I was battling a virus this weekend. I am finally feeling like myself again :)

  2. What is your take on wearing tights/ pantyhose with outfits? It's cold where I live and I plan on wearing pencil skirts during fall/winter but don't want to be cold...any advice? Thanks:)

  5. I love this outfit of yours :-) I'm a color person, so I'd probably add some rust/orange to make it more "me" haha. This is a great example of looking professional but still have your own style - with pieces that you can wear on the weekends, too!

  6. I was just looking at those Zara heels and wondering if they were comfortable! How did you find them to be as you wore them throughout the day?

  15. Great outfit! I bought a similar striped blazer recently and love it. I think I'm going to get some good wear out of the new "it" color for Fall - it's such a nice, warm color.

    Glad you're feeling better! I missed you posting a "haul" video this weekend - lol!

  19. Sorry you weren't feeling well. Did you get that weird throat/nose/fever thing? I unfortunately battled two rounds of it! In better news, I adore that skirt and I have been wanting an oxblood/burgundy piece to add to my wardrobe. Might have to pick one up!

  20. Really like the way you styled this skirt! I got the same one when it first came out but have yet to wear it. We are twinsies once again ;)

  22. I saw this skirt at Target a few weeks ago and thought of you and your love for pencil skirts! LOVE the stripes!

  23. Love it! I must confess, the deep burgundy and pink have been favorites of mine for years...so when you 'hauled' the skirt, I couldn't keep myself from running to Target to grab it. Thx for sharing!

  24. Love this. And that skirt is such a steal!

  25. I actually wore that blazer today and own that target skirt. You were totally right about the sizing, huge, I had to get a small but i love that the arms are long. And I ordered that skirt from target and got it yesterday! The sizing on that one runs totally small! Can stores work on some consistency please! I'm tall like you and I always wonder, if I'm buying a small what are the "actual small girls" wearing??!
