Today’s outfit features a few new favorites paired back with some oldies (but goodies). I recently picked up this pretty pleated skirt at Nordstrom for fall/the holidays (see the sparkle?) and I have already been getting a bunch of use out of it. It’s comfortable and an appropriate length for daytime wear, but with just a hint of sparkle, this skirt can take me through the weekend for upcoming holiday parties! Another recent acquisition is this olive crocodile clutch. While I’d been lusting after this one by Nancy Gonzalez, my mom actually came across a very similar piece while in Argentina last month. Since it looks almost identical and was much less expensive, it was an obvious choice!
As far as old purchases go, these Alexander Wang booties take me back to when I first started working at rewardStyle (March 2012) – can you believe they’re over two years old? I can’t. I had them re-soled and buffed up at my favorite shoe repair place in Dallas (after nearly wearing them to death), and they came back good as new! The other piece from the past is this infantry jacket I picked up last year – lucky for you, it’s still available! It’s just such a classic layering piece, especially for these confusing transitional months. I’ve worn it alone as a top and over a tee as a jacket. Shop this staple here.
Today is my first day back in London (in 5 years!) and I’m so excited to enjoy the city for over a week. Follow along on Instagram to see what Krystal and I are up to – looking forward to meeting with a bunch of amazing London-based brands, enjoying afternoon teas and shopping on the high streets! If you have any recommendations for while we’re in the city, send me an email or write a comment below.
Speaking of our London trip, Blacklane Limousines provided a complimentary transport to the airport and it was such a breeze! The driver couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful – and Krystal and I had a ton of luggage! It’s so nice not having to worry if a cab is going to be on time (are cabs ever reliable anymore?) or worrying about having a creepy UberX driver. I highly recommend checking out Blacklane – the whole experience was exceptional! Blacklane Limousine service is available in 140+ cities worldwide and they offer 9 different luxury vehicle types to fit your needs (from first class sedans like BMW 7-series to Mercedes Viano vans). You can book your trip on their website or via their handy and easy-to-use smartphone app. Genius! Click here to check out Blacklane Limousines.
