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.
