Lots of opportunities between today and tomorrow to Shop Local and support the many great businesses we have in Lancaster (or in your own local hometown)! We really don’t have much to buy this year but I am looking forward to getting out around town today, doing some walking and window shopping along the way.
Neutrals are always part of my go-to any time of the year. This faux leather skater skirt is so versatile and it feels and moves like real leather. A simple v-neck sweater is a staple…I have this one in several neutral colors because I liked it so much. You can never go wrong with these basics. My knee (and over the knee) sock bin keeps growing. I was recently talking with friends about what a difference they make with boots and are so much better than tights. No binding around your middle! This bamboo scarf is fantastic and made by a friend of mine locally. The dying is beautiful so each one is slightly different. Because of the longer length you can wear it like I am here or wrap it several times to keep your neck and chest nice and cozy. She can make any color combination and if you unroll it, I’ve been known to use it as a cover for my legs on a plane. I love it when a clothing piece has options!
I had the fun opportunity to dress up and try on new fashions at Taupe the other day. This new European line they are carrying is well made, simple and stylish.
This black dress is incredibly comfortable. It didn’t look like much on the hanger but it is stunning…the pictures don’t do it justice. The sleeves make it appear like a cape and give the dress a beautiful drape. I paired it with flat boots but it will look best with heels I think.
Typically I’m not one for an all over print, but I have to admit this romper was a fun look! If you’re planning a holiday get away somewhere warm it would be perfect. And it has pockets!
This sheer black blouse is so beautiful. It is asymmetrical and has a bat-wing style sleeve on one side. It screams for skinny jeans and a really beautiful bra! I would wear this during the day with a tank under it but with a bra only for a hot date night.
This outfit was the wild card for me…it is not something I would ever have thought to try on. But, I loved it! It’s actually two pieces and can look completely different depending on how you fold the sleeves or cape piece. It is lined with a light grey fabric that can show when folded or when walking. I put it with tights here although I think it would look just as good with a skinny pair of jeans.
We are having some really nice weather here in PA for November so I’m taking advantage of it today and still wearing short sleeves! I love t-shirts…honestly, I never realized how much until I started to take an inventory of my closet. I have alot of t-shirts; hanging and stacked depending on the type and how often they cycle through my wardrobe. Today’s pick is one Rob brought back from Tokyo. Don’t ask me what it says because I have no idea!
Incase the office has air conditioning on, I grabbed my faux fur vest. A little rock-in-roll I guess but it will take the chill off. My stand-by distressed jeans round out the outfit along with one of my favorite pairs of Mio earrings. You know Mio has more than simply earrings…I picked up a beautiful planter as a business gift there yesterday. If you haven’t been in, stop in tonight for First Friday and check them out.
I’m adding a bonus in today on my post…so many wives (and a few guys) have asked me to post Rob’s outfits. So, here he is ready running out the door. I wish we had more men’s options locally, unfortunately he does alot of online shopping or picking things up when he travels. He has an equally strong sense of style as you can see…today he’s pairing up an orange puffer vest with shorts and boots. I love that he has really embraced boots! Guys–don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit. So many men play it safe so really it opens the door for you to stand out (in a good way!)
