OOTD- Hanging on to Fall

Winter is on the way, but I can't quit you, fall.

After being spoiled with some rather warm weather for this time of year, winter has decided to wave and say I've arrived. Jackets are now going to be traded for coats (although I am happy I get to wear my new coat). Next to spring, fall is my favorite season, so I decided to let it linger a little while longer with this outfit's color palette. I absolutely loved how it came out and now I'm all excited trying to come up with some new color combos. 

On another note, have you ever found yourself coveting something, visiting the website all the time just to look at it, thinking about all of the things that it could work with in your closet, but just cringing at the price? I've been searching for the right pair of brown shoes and after spying J. Crew Mona's in a lovely chestnut brown color, I was instantly smitten. But $200+ on a pair of simple, non-designer shoes (sorry, J. Crew, you just don't compare to say, Miu Miu) just felt so wrong. Imagine my delight at finding my new shoes on Gilt!! Pretty much the same color, easy to walk in heel and at waaaaayyy less than my original love. That was cause for a celebratory jig. :)

What has been your favorite "for less" find?

Outfit Details:
Burgundy top- J. Crew (similar here)
Orange knit skirt- Simply Vera Vera Wang
Patent leopard belt- J. Crew outlet
Scarf- Missoni (similar here and similar silk budget version here)
Burgundy handbag- Marc by Marc Jacobs "Natasha" (same bag in different colors here, different style in same color here)
Tan pumps- Seychelles "Code"- (same shoe different color here, similar in patent here)
Tan coat- Uniqlo (similar here and here)


  1. Totally love the colors in this outfit, so pretty.
    I know what you mean about some overpriced shoes (love Mona in bright colors) but can't see myself paying that much for them.
    Great find on these ones!

  2. VERY cute shoes and outfit.

  3. yes hunny!!!!!!!!!! these colors are fabulous. It is great, but subtle color blocking and I love it. you look FIERCE

  4. I love JC shoes, but they seem to fit too long and narrow for me - and they aren't that comfy (I've tried boots, heels, platforms, flats ...). I love your punchy color combo here - the oranges and reds and purples work so well!

  5. I am such a fall girl. It's a mix of warm and brisk which is a good combo for me. I love the color palate that you have. Browns with rust and tans are calling my name.

  6. Nice photo and really cool outfit, you look great, I love your skirt, what a great color and that coat is so nice, the perfect touch to the outfit also you are really beautiful and your bag rocks!
