Well, readers, it’s getting to the point where it’s a bit difficult (read: freezing) to pose outside without Uggs and a down jacket. But, fear not, I will continue to bravely sport my outfits outside as long as possible! I just cannot resist the falling leaves and yellow trees as a backdrop. Can you blame me? My girlfriend and I do get a few odd looks here and there as people pass by as we take the blog photos. It’s all in the name of fashion, people. All in the name of fashion.
Top: Ann Taylor Loft (approx $9 marked down from approx $30)
Pants: Banana Republic ($20 marked down from approx $90)
Shoes: Dolce Vita ($20 marked down from $100)
Coat: Gap (approx $25 marked down from approx $70)
Scarf: got in Spain many years ago
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) While it is a bit chilly to wear this outside without a jacket, this outfit definitely works indoors this time of year. Once the heat gets going inside at work, long sleeve t-shirts work just fine indoors. I also tend to wear my flats and heels without socks/tights/knee highs until it gets a bit colder out. I don’t really have a rule of thumb about when I stop wearing bare feet with shoes, but I would say it tends to happen when there is snow on the ground or when my feet get too cold indoors. When I do make the switch over to socks/tights/knee highs, I keep my same summer, spring, and fall shoes out and just add a layer to my feet. Adding a layer is a good general strategy for transitioning clothes and shoes!
2) This long sleeve t-shirt is definitely casual for work, but I dressed it up with a scarf and dress pants. On Fridays, I tend to wear my more casual tops (this outfit was from Friday). As I’ve posted before, I think you can definitely wear t-shirts and long sleeve t-shirts at work within reason, as long as your other pieces (pants, shoes, jewelry) are more formal. Wearing your weekend tops with more formal pieces allows you to get a lot more wear out of your “weekend” clothes by wearing them at work.
Anyone else find themselves still going barefoot in their shoes? Wearing t-shirts at work?
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! Thanks for stopping by, readers!

What a fabulous colour those shoes are; I can see why you’d like to wear them for as long as possible!
What’s the fabulous color combination, really love it! So warm, cozy and vivid. This weekend I went to salvation army shop and I’ve bought wonderful blouse and shoes for only 16 NZD, it’s around 12 USD, am I a good student:)
YAY!! This makes me endlessly happy!! Please post on it! I’d love to see what you got!! xo
Thank you:) Sure I will:)
This outfit is freaking amazing. I want those shoes.
Love this post! It’s getting cold here as well…last night the temp dropped to -9 celcius! It’s like I forgot how to deal with it. I really love those and that coat!
GAH! Even colder than here! No posing outside in that!!
haha…I’m looking forward to the snow though so I can go skiing. I haven’t been in years.
LOVE the blue flats!
The blue flats are adorable! The weather here is fickle. The days are sometimes nice and warm, but the nights are bone chillingly cold. Oh well, as long as its sunny, I am OK with cold.. 🙂 Hope you have a great week ahead..
Good score on the red coat! Looks good with the white scarf. 🙂
Great look, love your shoes ❤
All.in.the.name.of.fashion! LOL Love your post. xx
Taking blog photos in public will definitely get you a few weird looks, haha. You’re not alone. Great outfit as usual you always look fab! Stay warm!
HAHA – It’s all in the name of fashion – clearly! Love the shoes against the yellow leaves – such a pretty contrast!
love the aqua flats and the pink stripes, you transitioned those both into fall nicely with the rest of the outfit.
Great outfit! Cute stripes! xx
I love the color of your shoes!! What a beautiful pairing idea! 😉
New Blog Post: Outfit Pairing Idea
I really like the color of your shoes and shirt. The go great together!
ahhh so romantic! 🙂
Love the color pop from the blue shoes and red coat. Very workweek chic look.
Loving the bold color combo here!! Looking so chic 🙂 I love all the leaves and the changing of colors…I wish it would last longer in Chicago…instead of going directly to FREEZING!
Lol super fun! And ahem I like how you always pose but never show your face. The mysterious fashion huntres… that should be your new name 😉 we only live 3.5 hours away I hope we can link up sometime! Maybe even double date the bf and I like to pop into chicago from time to time.
Yes! So mysterious! I feel like I can pose comfortably(ish) in the clothes because I don’t show my face. I’m not a model, I just love clothes!! And yes! Let me know when if you’re in Chicago- we can do a “blog mash-up double date shop-up bargain-hunt.” …that title is a work in progress, btw.
Hahaha yes please! Nah the name works let’s keep it.
