A couple weeks back I took an afternoon away from my laptop to partake in the State Fair of Texas! My friend Dori (who also works from home) was able to slip away for the day, so we spent the afternoon stuffing our faces with some delicious fried foods, riding the rides and even watched some pig races. If you didn’t get a chance to go this year, go in 2015 and definitely go to the pig races – I’ve never laughed so hard in my life! It was the perfect fall day – bright and sunny, but the air was crisp and cool. Since we were doing a lot of walking around and needed to be comfortable, I pulled out my favorite Old Navy sweater and jeans, and paired them with my Rag & Bone boots and new Kate Spade scarf.

This dream scarf is actually part of Kate Spade’s on purpose campaign – the brand is working with and teaching 150 Rwandan women to become profitable suppliers to the brand and to promote economic stability that will help transform their entire community. Kind of amazing, right? Click here to learn more about the initiative and to shop the other pieces created by these incredible women!

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.
