Taking Cues from Myself

Blouse: The Limited, thrifted, $1 // Jeans: Forme, $20 // Jacket: Target, $25 // Scarf: Vintage, thrifted // Shoes: Pour La Victoire, TJMaxx, $20

For this look, I drew inspiration (and a couple of pieces) from the zombie collection I shared with you yesterday. The jeans, jacket and flat oxfords make it a bit more casual and modern than the looks from the show. I really like the way the faux leather jacket toughens up the ladylike blouse and scarf. This is the third time I've worn the polka dot scarf this week; it may be my new favorite accessory! I've always been a fan of shirts with necks that tie, and it's dangerously easy to throw this over anything.

Now that the weather is really cooling down, I'm starting to get serious about dressing for fall. There are still a few items on my shopping list, but in the mean time I'm going to work with what I've got and hopefully rediscover some favorite pieces from last year. What are you most excited to wear this fall?

The pics from your fashion show were amazing! Great styling. I was most captivated by your flawless use of color! Love your blouse with those jeans. Such a perfect match. I am most looking forward to wearing all my blazers and boots this fall and well into the winter! I am also looking for a huge chunky knit scarf that will go with everything!

I love the red and white striped shirt with those high-waisted jeans. I think your outfit can be described as "tough circus." :} Really interesting!

I am seriously loving the daytime zombie look! ;) The neck scarf is perfect, and the way the long striped sleeves just peek out from the jacket is so fun!
