There’s something about this outfit that makes it one of my favorite posts to date. I think it’s the combination of the neutral palette combined with the fact that all of these items are attainable, practical and classic. It is such a simple look, but that’s what makes it great.

Arnie and I  walked to church Sunday morning, and it was a typically chilly fall day, for sure. This jacket (which I especially love for its petite sizing) was perfectly cozy to keep me warm along the walk. By the way, I am wearing a XSP here. I tried the XXSP, but knowing I wanted room for a bulkier sweater or top underneath, the XSP was a more comfortable fit.

And I think this is the third or fourth pair I have of these jeans. You know when you find something you really like, and you buy it in every color? That’s how I feel about these jeans. I like the super slim leg opening of the legging jeans (works so well for boots weather), but I also like that this fabric isn’t prone to the stretching that a lot of jeans are. I’ve had jeans in the past that I swear grew two sizes in a day, just from stretching out so much; these really seem to hold their shape.

This bag. I found it at Marshall’s a few weeks ago for (somewhere around) $40. A friend of mine at work has almost the exact same one and got hers for $30. We both use them nearly every day for work. There’s a middle zipper pocket that separates the tote into two sections, a secure place to keep your wallet. It’s a good small size for everyday toting to and from the office, and the removable shoulder strap is great when you want free hands.

Proof that a polished look for a date night or dinner out is only a few well-fitting pieces away. :)
