Although it’s starting to get a little chilly for bare legs and no coat, this outfit’s crop-sleeved sweater, round skirt and classic sneakers made the perfect combination for a quick trip to the Mall of America (not a special trip just had to make a return…living in Minneapolis makes this is our day-to-day mall).
I’ve been so into maroon and blue lately that throwing together this outfit took a just a few minutes. Also unplanned was the mod feel this outfit has – with the stripes, color block and the illusion of a drop waist from the sweater laying over the skirt. I suppose my latest guilty pleasure of catching up with the Mad Men series on Netflix has started to creep into my style…
Catching up from a brunch date with Grandma a few weeks ago brings another maroon and blue look.
This hat was an impulse buy after last winter and has served me well this fall season. I love how it looks even more now that I’m blonde (when I bought it I was a dark brunette). The contrast really makes the navy and maroon stand out.
