ootd: repeat

i’m wearing: anthropologie lace & stripes blouse, free people skinnies, old navy utility cargo vest, michael kors watch, monogrammed necklace c/o bestpersonalizedjewelry.com and berryessa suede flats in “rust” c/o crocs.

i wore this outfit for a day of errands and then to a playdate later in the day. i will pretty much throw this vest on over every thing i wear. whether it matches or not…lol. so are you guys ready for the holidays? i haven’t bought a SINGLE gift yet. and even weirder than that…i haven’t even given my husband my xmas list yet. i usually have about 10 different ones by now. i am so behind this year. although i did get my tree up earlier than i ever have. and our xmas cards arrived today so i know what i will be doing all weekend…

p.s. if this outfit looks totally familiar, it’s because i pretty much wore the exact same outfit here. i told you i will throw this vest on over any ol’ outfit and call it a new outfit. =)

    Such a cute casual look – I love that top everytime you wear it!

    I haven’t done any Christmas shopping either and am just starting to address my cards 🙂

    I consider it a new outfit if I just change out the shoes. Or a necklace. Love this lace top! And love the vest.

    I also am currently using a fur accented vest on repeat for the past few days now. It’s just so versatile & goes with about anything!!

    Love that lace and stripes Anthro top! I bought a sweater from Anthro a few years ago that was very similar, and I can’t count the number of times I’ve worn it – I’l have it forever, I’m sure. You look so adorable!

    the layering effect is quite neat! i like how you used a rust lace with stripes – very creative. your sleeveless parka also matches the camel brown elements in your outfit well. great job!

    It would make me happy if you visited too!
