Don’t be fooled by these photos, readers. This fashion blogger is getting swept up in the holiday madness and falling a bit behind on posts. Thus, despite the fall colors in the background, it is, alas, not fall here in Chicago. Despite this being a “fall” post, I’m actually glad I can share it with you all after all! This was one of my favorite “casual not-so casual Friday” looks.
…for real, though, anyone else falling behind in their blogging besides me!? I’m also a bit behind in my cards, baking, wrapping. Oh, my. When all else fails, though, slip on your favorite heels or bundle up in your favorite scarf and maintain the look of organization, right? As we all learned from Elle Woods (Legally Blonde), always look the part.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) While I took these photos in fall, this outfit definitely works for winter, with the addition of socks/knee socks/knee highs/tights. I totally planned this post knowing that I could talk about how versatile fall into winter fashion can be…(yes….likely story). Personally, I like to go with bare feet in flats/heels as long as possible because I don’t look knee highs or socks, but I think bare feet this late in the season looks a bit odd. When I do wear knee highs or socks, I generally find them at Marshall’s and DSW. I’m curious what readers think- please comment below!
2) I’ve said it once and I will say it before, I am all about long-sleeve tee-shirts at work, especially on Fridays. I like to add more formal shoes and jewelry when I wear my long-sleeve tees to polish my look a bit. When I added the red cardigan, you really couldn’t even tell that this shirt was a long sleeve tee. I say go for comfort at work- just remember to dress up your look with easy add-ons such as jewelry or dressy shoes.
I’m curious what others think about bare feet in winter? Is there a bare foot rule?
