Concrete Catwalk // Dressed Down Dinner

November 15, 2011
 i’ve been thinking a lot about “uniforms” lately, and i must say,
jeans, a blazer and fabulous heels are one of my main go-tos after the temperatures drop.
there are just so many different combinations possible,
and it’s such an easy way to look put together without too much effort!
this little combo was just right for a dressed down dinner party with friends.
i’ve also been reaching for dozens of different combinations
using my maxi skirts and chunky knit sweaters.
what’s your fall uniform these days?
(p.s. i’m wearing this same shirt again today as i fly back from AZ to KC,
and i love it just as much with leggings, a drapey sweater & booties!)
 earrings (similar) – betsey johnson
tuxedo jacket (similar) – j. crew
tee – c/o beauxx
toothpick jeans – j. crew
heels (similar) – shoe loft (kc)
lines bracelet (similar) – aldo
circle bracelet – c/o poshlocket

    Is there ANYTHING you can’t wear without looking completely fantastic? Seriously. I love your white jacket – I’ve been looking for one for months and haven’t had much luck. The button placement and lapels on yours is really unique. Looks like I’ll be thrifting for a white blazer or tuxedo jacket today!

    My weekend “go to” at this time of the year is often my black leather pants and a light sweater. Chic. Comfy. Multiple combinations. LOVE.

    That’s what I love about blazers: You can throw one on over anything and look totally fab! Great look on you :)

    I seriously LOVE fall. I like to go with cardigans with a skinny belt or long drape-y sweaters with leggings. But my new look this year (since I’m finally a professional!) is anything with a fitted blazer!

    A dress, tights and heeled boots tend to be my work uniform when the temperature drops. I have to force myself to be a bit more creative now and then. :)

    I totally agree, Genny! I love my dresses, with tights and winter boots. I’m finally at a work place with no dress code, and it’s been fun to experiment!

    This uniform is great! Nothing like a cute little blazer…and those shoes are show stoppers for sure! My go-to casual outfit has been rolled up boyfriends with oversized sweaters and flats…perfect for running around or lounging.
